Jamel and Mike’s Black Mountain Sanctuary Wedding

Even though it was raining for a lot of the day, the skies cleared before the ceremony and Mike and Jamel were able to still get married outside! It was such a sweet and emotional ceremony.

The Black Mountain Sanctuary was the perfect backdrop for this enchanted forest type theme.  It was fun to photograph Mike and Jamel in the little forest nooks.

Loved working with Brittany from Verge events! She kept everything right on track, and handled the rain perfectly!

As always I hope you enjoy the photos as much as I do. It is always so hard for me to choose my favorites for the blog. I know I post way more then is ever suggested by SEO savvy people. Thank you for viewing!

Mike and Jamel you two are the sweetest. I adore how you adore each other. I wish you nothing but love in your marriage! I know it will be as amazing as you two!

Loved this idea for little notes for Mike and Jamel to read on their anniversary.

Cool key/bottle opener party favors.

Each girl was given this lace to wear however they chose.

I love that Mike chose his sister to be his “best woman” and that Jamel chose her brothers to be her “men of honor”.

Loved loved loved Mike and Jamel’s ceremony exit! Dancing down the aisle!

Jamel’s brothers took their jobs seriously too! They held the bouquet and bustled her dress.

Black Eyed Susan Catering NEVER disappoints! There was a biscuit bar, and a pasta bar, and well as these beautiful salads.

This was the book Mike and his sister’s mom always read to them as children. Mike’s sister read the passage about what is real during the ceremony. It was perfect!

One of Mike’s groomsmen did a fabulous job dj’ing for them and also lip synced “serenaded” them at the end of the night.

Such a perfect and lovely day, not matter the weather.  Rain or shine weddings always work!
