Elizabeth & Michael’s cultural garden wedding took place at Hickory Nut Gap Farm in Asheville, North Carolina.
The natural surroundings of the farm set the tone for this cultural garden wedding. Guests left with custom favors: Michael’s Scottish family crest fit perfectly on the little tags that were used to adorn the hand-painted Mexican maracas.
From the photographer: The most beautiful Scottish-Mexican wedding there ever was. Elizabeth grew up in the States, and Michael came all the way from Scotland to attend Montreat College, where they met and fell in love. Right before the ceremony, they wanted a quiet moment to pray together and hold hands without seeing each other, setting the tone for the rest of the day. Onto the garden, their wedding was nothing short of inspirational and sweet. Tucked away from the world on a spring day, in the mountains of North Carolina, they said their vows in front of close friends and family. The small, quiet garden surrounded them with lush greenery as they incorporated an intentional mix of their own ceremonial elements, as well as a Scottish tradition. By washing each other’s feet, their first act as husband and wife was one of humility and spiritual devotion, which truly defines these two genuine beings.
