Kerrigan and Trevor’s Mountain Wedding in the rain at Chestnut Ridge Venue

Despite the forecast of rain all day, Kerrigan and Trevor’s love story shone brightly at their stunning May wedding in the mountains of North Carolina. The ceremony took place at Chestnut Ridge Venue, where the couple, who met in Chiropractor school, exchanged vows against a backdrop of misty mountains and rolling clouds.

Thankfully, the rain subsided just in time for the newlyweds and their wedding party to venture outdoors for some beautiful photos. The fog-covered mountains were stunning

We were thrilled to capture these moments for Kerrigan and Trevor, making the most of the break in the weather to create some fun and romantic images. The evening ended with the couple sharing a private dance and exiting through a misty sparkler exit, proving that even the rain couldn’t dampen the joy and excitement of their celebration. It just goes to show that when two hearts are meant to be together, love always finds a way to shine through.
