This past Saturday, Oct. 17, I had the honor to spend the day with Corey Kilcullen and Kris Harris at The Farm in Candler, NC. It was a beautiful, cold, fall day up here in the mountains and a perfect day to tie the knot! Corey and Kris are very much in love and I could definitely tell that they were also each other's best friend! They definitely know how to have a good time together! As self-confessed worshipers of the simpler things in life, Corey and Kris lived every moment of their wedding day with an enthusiasm that was contagious! I had such a great time working with this couple! Corey told me before the wedding that she and Kris "started out our relationship laughing and hope to do that for years to come!" I think Saturday was a good start for that!
The day started in the afternoon when Corey and her girls were getting ready at the cabins on the Farm (below).
Corey made an gorgeous bride!

This wedding party wore disguises for their entrance (below). Definitely one of the best entrances to a reception that I've ever seen!!
