Rustic Banner Elk North Carolina Real Wedding

Destination weddings are a perfect chance to celebrate becoming husband and wife in a beautiful setting away from home. Stephanie and Ryan gathered their friends and family for a lovely wedding in the mountains of North Carolina, at the Banner Elk winery. The venue choice offered an intimate setting and they chose a quaint country barn as the location for the ceremony and family-style reception. banner-elk-north-carolina-destination-real-wedding--29 banner-elk-north-carolina-destination-real-wedding--2 banner-elk-north-carolina-destination-real-wedding--6 banner-elk-north-carolina-destination-real-wedding--8 banner-elk-north-carolina-destination-real-wedding--7 banner-elk-north-carolina-destination-real-wedding--27 banner-elk-north-carolina-destination-real-wedding--28 banner-elk-north-carolina-destination-real-wedding--23 banner-elk-north-carolina-destination-real-wedding--9 banner-elk-north-carolina-destination-real-wedding--10 banner-elk-north-carolina-destination-real-wedding--11 banner-elk-north-carolina-destination-real-wedding--3 banner-elk-north-carolina-destination-real-wedding--4 banner-elk-north-carolina-destination-real-wedding- banner-elk-north-carolina-destination-real-wedding--24  banner-elk-north-carolina-destination-real-wedding--25

Inside the ceremony, guests sat on simple wooden benches as they watched Stephanie and Ryan exchange vows.

Stephanie’s dress was stunning – it featured a simple sweetheart neckline and voluminous, airy hemline. The bride’s gown was a perfect complement to the natural textures and colors of the wedding location. Stephanie’s bridesmaids wore long dresses with a one shoulder neckline and they complemented the bride perfectly. The style in this wedding shows you can wear any type of dress, even if you are married outdoors or in a rustic setting – so beautiful!

After the ceremony, the barn was transformed into a family-style reception, where guests enjoyed a delicious menu and lovely cake. Instead of the traditional topper, the word ‘love’ adorned the top of the cake – a beautiful way to create a unique touch!
