Fall is a beautiful season here in the mountains but it also always tends to be a bit rainy here… but even rain can’t ruin the perfect wedding day.
This weekend Hans + Randee exchanged their vows at The Retreat at Hiawasse River with fall leaves in full color and misty mountains all around.
Randee + Hans reserved the entire Retreat at Hiawasse for a full 5 days so all their guest could enjoy luxury cabins on the river, fall views, mountain hikes and more.
As afternoon quickly arrived the mist on the mountains began to rise just above the tree tops. Delicate droplets of rain softly fell on the vibrant changing leaves and every now and then the sun would sneak out a glimmering ray golden glitter.
And every so often the rain would stop and give way to lush vibrant dazzling color left in it’s shiny coating. Which was perfect for the first look.
Hans was not the only first look, Bradley, Han’s son also had an opportunity to do a first look with Randee! Be still our hearts!
Then it was wedding time!
As fate would have it the rain let up once again just after the ceremony for gorgeous bridal party photos, family photos and romantic photos outside. Mother Nature was on their side.
But seriously these two amazing people are so incredibly laid back the the rain never even fazed their day from the beginning. If anything it made it that much more of an adventure and time to remember. Memories made with laughter, big contagious smiles and warm hugs.
Family and friends made their way into the gorgeous reception room where hand picked fall leaves, fresh pine and evergreens adorn the tables.
And thanks to Randee + Han’s we now have a new favorite Gand Exit flair – Confetti Poppers! OMG they photography so well and are so much fun!
