Madison and Kody’s fall wedding at Hawkesdene in Andrews, NC was absolutely beautiful! The weather was amazing, their intimate mountain top ceremony was beyond gorgeous, feeding alpacas in wedding attire is always fun, and their family and friends showed them such incredible love and support!
This venue, which sits about two hours west of Asheville, NC is my all time favorite venue! It is an expansive estate with a beautiful main house and cabins, a cute modern barn that houses alpacas, a creek and covered bridge, beautifully manicured gardens and open green space, and best of all, they own a mountain top with incredible long range mountain views! Madison and Kody chose this venue based on photos and videos, without ever setting foot on it. I assured them right from the start that they made a wonderful decision, and on their wedding day, they confirmed that! They absolutely loved the estate and all it had to offer. Honestly though, who wouldn’t love this place?! It’s gorgeous and managed by the most incredible staff!
From talking with Madison and Kody before their wedding I knew that they both were very easy going and didn’t like the spotlight on them. I assured them that they day could still be all about them without it having to feel like all eyes were looking their way. With their planning, they did a wonderful job setting up their day exactly how they envisioned it. They got to spend most of it together, exactly as they should, with only a few moments of the day where they were in the spotlight. Their mountain top ceremony included only the closest family while their dinner and reception included everyone who attended. It was a perfect mix for them!
Throughout our entire time together Madison and Kody were nothing but sweet. The excitement Madison showed for their first look told me that they couldn’t wait to see one another all dressed for their wedding, their soft smiles during the ceremony were full of love and showed me that they were very ready to step into marriage, and their big laughter, sweet moments, and soft kisses the rest of the day told me that they are so very happy to be together forever.
Congratulations, Madison and Kody!
