Rustic Romantic Wedding at Hunter Mountain

You know the feeling when you wake up in the morning with knots in your stomach from excitement and nerves? I imagine this is how most brides feel on the morning of their wedding day. So many things falling into place, all of your loved ones traveling to celebrate that you found the one person who you connect with in a way that is almost indescribable other than “it’s just so right”. Watching Emily and Peter together you can see that connection and the love that they have for each other. She never smiled so brightly until she saw his face when she walked down the aisle. I am just so unbelievably happy for them. All of the weddings that we have the privilege of capturing stem from one root. Love. The love between the couple, the love of the families, the love of the friends and our love for being present to capture and hold that love in a moment forever. One of the things that made this Hunter Mountain wedding so special is the closeness and connection that Emily and Peter have with their families. I absolutely loved that they had Peter’s sister perform the ceremony and his brother was his best man. Emily’s brother created a beautiful ring box and preformed a ring blessing during the ceremony and her sisters both shared beautiful readings that brought everyone to tears (including our team).  It only made since to have their family so integrated into the ceremony as they are so close with them all. The trip up Hunter Mountain was breathtaking with such vast views and stunning scenery. It completely fit Emily’s vision of a relaxed rustic romantic feel.
