Dreamy Fall Wedding at Chestnut Ridge

Hello friends! I cannot wait to share today’s blog post with you highlighting a dreamy fall wedding in the NC mountains! Let me set the stage… the crisp air, the rustle of leaves underfoot, and the warmth of love filling the air. That is exactly the vibe you get at Chestnut Ridge in Canton, NC where fall weddings are just pure magic!

I fell in love with Shelby and Tristain the minute I met them for their engagement session at Biltmore Estate last summer. Sidebar, if you’d like to see those photos, click here 🙂 It’s no secret that I couldn’t wait for their wedding day to arrive so I could capture their sweet smiles a second time. To make it even more special, they got married at one of my absolute favorite venues in the Canton area. As your go-to North Carolina luxury wedding photographer, I’m here to spill the beans on why this place is an absolute gem.

What Makes Chestnut Ridge So Special

Chestnut Ridge is like stepping into a fairytale. Think charming barns decked out with twinkling lights and sprawling landscapes bursting with autumn colors. It’s the kind of backdrop that makes your jaw drop, and trust me, capturing those candid moments and sweet embraces against this backdrop is what I live for. This venue is ideal for a dreamy fall wedding. Actually, it’s an incredible venue year-round!

So, if you’re all about embracing the cozy vibes of fall and want your wedding day to feel like a warm hug, Chestnut Ridge is where it’s at. Moreover, I’ve worked there several times and am very familiar with the landscape and what makes for the perfect shot! If you’re looking for an elegant venue nestled in the NC mountains, Chestnut Ridge should be on your list.
