Lake Lure photography: Carly & Tom, the wedding

Saturday was a great day for a wedding. Lake Lure was gorgeous and the weather turned out perfectly, despite a healthy thunderstorm in the early afternoon. Nothing dampened Carly and Tom's spirits, though. They were determined to make it a great day, rain or shine. Surrounded by their friends and family, the wedding weekend was perfect. Here are some of the highlights from the big day - be sure to leave the newlyweds a message, too!

Tom is from Sweden, so there were fun details thrown in...

Tom and Carly saw each other before the wedding and we had an awesome photo session...

An emotional walk with Dad...

Eyes only for her groom...

The Lake Lure trolley took us around in style...

This group requested the jump shot and we loved it...

Carly's dad had everyone laughing during the toast...

Tom and Carly were serenaded by the best man while they danced...

Gorgeous mountainside retreat...

Carly can play a mean cowbell...

And they shocked the crowd with a cannonball exit!

Big splash! Congrats guys!
