There are weddings that make you smile and then there are weddings that make your jaw drop to the floor. Jenny and Lance’s Beech Mountain-set nuptials captured by marvelous mountain girl photographer Michelle Lyerly happen to be the latter. The gown, the bride’s up-do, their ceremony setup (a teepee, get out!)— all utter perfection and details of this wedding that still have us giddy to this day. And if their first encounter wasn’t precious enough (they met at summer camp in their youth) then how about the fact that their two pooches, Chi Chi and Champ, joined in during the ceremony? “I made sure to kiss Chi Chi and have Lance kiss her, too, as we were a packaged deal,” says Jenny. Yes, hunny, yes. And to make sure guests had a great time, the couple along with Reid’s Cafe & Catering Co. treated everyone to a seven-course lavish meal that ended with some sweet sorbet. Umm, how about yum? Let’s raise our sparkling champagne glasses to these two, a host and hostess after our own heart.
