Alexis and Nick at Camp Highlander

I’m so thrilled to be sharing these photos with you from Alexis and Nick’s wedding which took place on Sept. 2 at Camp Highlander in Mills River, NC. It was such a fantastic weekend overall. The couple decided to get married at the camp so that all their friends and family could stay there for the weekend and participate in camp activities like water-slides, archery, “the blob”, climbing, frisbee golf, and of course, music and good times. My second photographer, Tommy Penick, and I had so much fun photographing this truly unique celebration of love, family, and friends. Here are some highlights from the weekend, starting with the rehearsal day and guests arriving (below):

Just some of the camp activities that wedding guests participated in! not your average wedding weekend!! 🙂

After a day of fun, everyone gathers for the rehearsal

Saturday night ended with music, a bonfire, smores, and more fun!

On Sunday, the wedding day, the ladies gathered at the “big chief” cabin with Jessica from Blush by Wendy Ballance, and the crew at Infusion Hair Salon to get everyone ready.

Nick’s grandfather conducted a beautiful ceremony.

The giant hill allowed for a perfect spot for a big group photo! I was told this is where they take their camp group shots too!


What a GORGEOUS bride!!!

Mitch Fortune Productions did a great job keeping everyone on the dance floor!

What a moment (above) when the entire staff of Camp Highlander took over the dance floor for the song, Footloose!

A great end to a great weekend! Congratulations to Nick and Alexis! Thanks so much for trusting us with your special memories! Another big thanks to second photographer, Tommy Penick who went above and beyond, using his awesome adventure photography skills to get some great shots of guests having fun! Thanks Tommy! I love having you on my team!!
