A Gorgeous Catholic Wedding in the Mountains of North Carolina

An intimate Latin Mass Wedding with touches of green and white in Tryon, North Carolina.

Caroline and Josh's joyful and intimate wedding day in the mountains of Tryon, North Carolina was gorgeous from start to finish! The day started out at detailed and historic bed and breakfast, GreenLife Inn at Mimosa. This little B&B was filled with historic accents like a cozy fireplace, a beautiful front porch and rocking chairs, and had the cutest details! It was the perfect, quaint space for us to capture getting ready photos, detail flatlay shots, a bridesmaid reveal and a first look with dad.

Afterwards, we headed to St. John the Baptist Catholic Church in Tryon for their gorgeous Latin Mass ceremony. It's a cozy, floor-to-ceiling wooden church filled with stain-glass windows and provided the perfect location for their intimate ceremony. It was one of the most beautiful wedding masses I have gotten the opportunity to capture.

After their wedding mass, we went to their reception at Caitlyn Farms, a beautiful farm venue with views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Their 600-acre property is not only home to a stunning venue space, but also a grass fed cattle ranch and wildlife management area! Caitlyn Farms was the perfect space for their 170-guest wedding, providing a beautiful reception space with large barn doors, shimmering chandeliers surrounded by drapes, fire pits, an open-air patio, a walking garden and greenhouse, and the best part - the mountain views and rolling hills.

Everything about this day was gorgeous, emotional, intimate and truly filled with the Holy Spirit. They even did a washing of the feet ceremony in their reception that was incredibly humbling and meaningful. The best part about this wedding was that it was forecasted to rain all day and not a single drop fell throughout their day until the second they entered their getaway car at the end of the wedding! It was truly a blessing!

The florals by Carolina Petals were so elegant and beautiful, the food provided by Sullivan's was delicious and the music and lighting by Mavericks Entertainment kept the cheerful party going all the way through the fun sparkler exit!

Traveling to weddings is one of favorite things because I get to meet couples and other vendors from all over and get to know and experience different towns and landscapes! Photographing Caroline and Josh on their day was so special and they left me a review that made me tear up...

"5 trillion stars!!!Working with Allie was all I could ever dream of in a wedding photographer. My husband and I had searched for a photographer for months and were discouraged, but the wait was so worth it when we finally stumbled upon Allie!! She shares our Catholic faith, so I knew she’d be able to understand our desire to capture the beauty of the Mass and the Sacrament of Matrimony. I had expressed a worry that the church might look too dark (it is floor to ceiling wood with almost no natural light) and she captured the light and edited the photos masterfully. She brought out the beautiful interior that I was afraid might get lost. Allie makes you feel like a friend by the end of the day, and I totally forgot that we were strangers that morning. She’s bubbly and calming all at the same time. She is confident, experienced, assertive, and organized. She knew just what to say when I was getting overwhelmed or nervous, and mirrored a wedding planner at times, giving us the direction we needed throughout the day. From picking me up coffee on her way to our hotel the morning of (and reminding me to drink it), to her organization and efficiency throughout the day and dedication to getting the perfect photographs, she was one of the biggest blessings on that day by FAR. I’m a pretty private person by nature, but I’ve shared the link to our wedding gallery with EVERYONE. That’s how obsessed I am. All my family and friends keep telling me how beautiful the photos are, and my husband and I still remark at how wonderful of a job Allie did. I want to frame all of them. THANK YOU Allie. I will forever recommend you to everyone. As a gal who knows multiple wedding photographers personally, I’m so glad the Lord guided us to you. Thank you for making our wedding photo dreams come true."
