Outdoor Mountain Wedding – Pepper Nix Photography
Oh, sweet mountain charm, there’s nothing quite like the crisp, clean mountain air. The beauty and majestic views here lend themselves perfectly to the elegance of this wedding. The entire wedding captured by the lovely Pepper of Pepper Nix Photography is a most beautiful outdoor affair.
Did you do a First Look before the ceremony? We didn’t know what the “first look” was about until Pepper suggested it, and we were really glad we did it. When Ty saw my gown, we really enjoyed seeing each other in our wedding duds, and getting to share our feelings and thoughts between the two of us rather than our whole group of wedding guests. The wedding day was so busy; I don’t think we would have had that opportunity otherwise. I love that our formal photos after our First Look include both of us. We have a huge variety of beautiful pictures, and we were also able to spend a lot more time with our guests after the ceremony.
Did someone escort you down the aisle? My papa! Who and why did you pick that escort? My dad walking me down the aisle was very special to me. My dad played a huge part in the planning. He went to every dress appointment, every catering tasting, the florist meetings, he even went with my mom and me to pick out wedding jewelry. It was so special to see him want to be so involved and excited about the day; I am very lucky to have a father so willing to look at hundreds of dresses and earrings!
Where did you get the inspiration for your color palette and design? My ring! Ty picked out my ring after I had told him how much I loved rose gold. I wanted a palette that would work well with our time of year and venue, along with my love for all things rose gold and blush!
Old, new, borrowed, blue – Did you follow that tradition and if so, what did you use? My mom was responsible for these things! My favorites were my borrowed and blue. My mom cut a heart out of one of my dad’s shirts, and it was sewn into the inside of my dress by the zipper. My something borrowed was a handkerchief that belonged to my grandmother. It was tucked inside of my dress.
