Crestwood Inn Wedding Photos | Kacey and Wade | Boone Wedding Photographer – Blue Bend Photography


On Friday afternoon we headed up to Boone for the weekend. Kacey and Wade made the trip to Boone from Tennessee with 100 of their friends and family for a beautiful weekend at the Crestwood Inn. The Crestwood Inn is an amazing hotel just to the West of Boone off Shulls Mill Rd. and down from the Parkway.

Friday night Kacey and Wade had their Rehearsal and dinner. I got to photograph and meet most of their friends and family that night, which made the next day really relaxed for most people. Their minister happened to be Kacey’s minister from when she was in high school. He came all the way there from Hawaii to marry them. I got the feeling that everything about the wedding was very personal.

Kacey and Wade decided to see each other before the wedding, which gave the three of us a ton of time to go and get photos. Since the Crestwood is so close to the Parkway we ran up there, braved the cold and got a bunch of great stuff at the Cone Manor and downtown Blowing Rock. Sometimes people ask me about my opinion on seeing each other before the wedding. This is a perfect example of cool stuff you can do with enough time – seeing each other before the wedding allowed us to have over 2 hours for photos. Had we have waited till after the ceremony, we would have only had a couple of minutes to shoot, and it would’ve been in the dark since the sun set during the ceremony.
