Real Weddings: Katie + Brandon

It was a priority of Katie and Brandon for their wedding to feel like a vacation for their guests. Once they found the mountain retreat of the Hawkesdene Estate in Andrews, North Carolina, they knew it was the perfect location! The bridal party took over the mansion and guest houses of the estate for the three days before the wedding, celebrating and crafting many of the details of the big event. Katie was insanely resourceful, using found and salvaged items details such as their seating chart, escort card display, and table numbers. What a gorgeous rustic mountain wedding with beautiful photos by the talented TimWill Photography!
