A couple of weeks ago we were treated to the Perseid Meteor Shower. As soon as I read that the conditions would be optimal for meteor viewing (no moon and no clouds), I knew exactly where I wanted to go.
Emily and Tim are getting married next April.
So, we decided to snap a few photos in honor of their engagement. Late September along the Blue Ridge Parkway is a beautiful thing. So is true love.
There was thunder overhead when we first got to the Roan Highlands, but thankfully the rain held off and the clouds pushed out, leaving us with a gorgeous summer sunset! The Rhododendron and the Azalea blooms did not disappoint.
While Patrick and I were there, we were surrounded by as many as fifteen other people. It made photographing the waterfall a little difficult. Our once secret waterfalls are apparently no longer a secret. They’re still just as beautiful, but now a little more crowded and a little dirtier than they once were. Unfortunately, that’s how it goes sometimes.
With a candlelit ceremony at dusk in a small courtyard surrounded by their friends, family, a giant Christmas Tree, and a sweet dune buggy, Anne and Chris were married on a cold December day. A build your own Ramen Bar, a lamp just like the one in A Christmas Story (you know which one I’m talking about), and 30 floating lanterns at the end of the night, helped make the reception a hit!
I just found these film scans from my time in Oregon during the summer of 2012.
