LOCATION | BLOWING ROCK, NORTH CAROLINA
One of the best things about having a vacation home in the mountains is getting to visit all of my favorite places whenever I want. It’s the best thing to go up for the weekend to escape and relax. I love seeing the town go through all the seasons of the year – from the changing leaves of fall, to covered in a blanket of white in the winter, to the stunning greens and blue mountains in the spring and summer.
The spot we shot these photos (it may look familiar from this post) is one of my absolute favorite views. It’s right on the side of the Blue Ridge Parkway, but the second you stand and stare out at the horizon, you completely forget any civilization exists. It seems like you can see out forever, until the blue of the mountains blends into the blue of the sky.
We may have almost gotten blown away by the crazy wind (note my hair in these photos!), but getting to see this view was completely worth it. This sweet little white dress couldn’t have been more perfect for the moment. The vibrant hues of the backdrop truly show off in contrast to the white, and the flutter sleeves definitely enjoyed flapping in the mountain breeze!
