Lake Junaluska Spring Elopement | Kara & Andrew

Kara and Andrew are married!! These two had an absolutely beautiful Lake Junaluska spring elopement! This wedding was the best kind of simple, laid back, and SO heartfelt.

They had a small and private ceremony at Lambuth Inn, with beautiful lake and rolling mountain views. Their reception followed at Harrell Center 201 and balcony for a fun evening with friends and family! They fell in love with this venue because it was so close to friends and family, and there are beautiful views!

Kara and Andrew met at Chick-fil-a, what a fun story! She said he was always singing random songs and making her laugh. They went to a Star Wars movie together, and never separated again. They are such a fun pair together, and I had so much fun on their wedding day!

True to their love of Star Wars, they incorporated it into their wedding reception tables! Each table had a Star Wars name, like C3P-0, R2-D2, and BB-8.

Thank you to all of their amazing vendors for helping to pull off such an amazing day!! Their Lake Junaluska spring elopement was absolutely magical, and I am so thankful I was able to be a part of it! Congratulations, Kara and Andrew!!!

“I was drawn to Tracy as our photographer because of her vibrant and beautiful photos on Instagram. When I read her “about me” blurb on her website and saw that she was a Chick-fil-A lover with a fun personality, I knew I wanted her as our photographer. Tracy went above and beyond to capture our love story. She brought her own props that made it even more special and beautiful. She was so fast and efficient!

Tracy made me feel so comfortable and beautiful being in front of a camera which I’m normally really nervous. In just three hours, she was able to capture more than I ever expected. I begin to tear up whenever I see the pictures. I’m so thankful for her and all that she did!” – Kara, bride
