I am so excited to finally be able to share this GORGEOUS Canyon Kitchen at Lonesome Valley wedding! This is the most breathtaking wedding venue in Sapphire near Cashiers/Highlands. This wedding was featured on Style Me Pretty so I needed to wait until they blogged it first. I have got up on all my work and can now feature this stunner of a wedding on my own blog!
Mike and Lindsey met in middle school but did not reconnect until years later at a wedding and became engaged 2 years later. Lindsey’s parents have a house in Cashiers and they happened to have dinner at Canyon Kitchen and remembered it when deciding on a wedding venue. A little side note the chef of Canyon Kitchen is the famed chef John Fleer who opened Rhubarb in Downtown Asheville a couple of years ago. I had the chance to meet him at the wedding for a second and was totally geeking out! I LOVE good food and in my world I was meeting a celebrity! What a treat for all the wedding guests!
Lindsey and Mike wanted a romantic and intimate wedding, and Lindsey also really wanted a beautiful tented reception. Becca with Asheville Event Co. nailed it, if I do say so myself! I know I say this often but one of the best things you can do when planning a wedding is hiring an awesome wedding planner (and of course an amazing photographer, sorry for the shameless plug!). Great planners are worth their weight in gold and Asheville is blessed with some amazing planners!
I hope you enjoy all these photos. I love looking back at this beautiful wedding and this beautiful couple. Hard to believe it was almost a year ago!

An onsite painter was something I have never seen at a wedding and was such a neat idea. Guests signed a piece of canvas that would be mounted to back of the painting. This was such great conversation piece as well.
