Rumbling Bald on Lake Lure Wedding: Lauren + Daniel

October 16, 2015

Lauren and Daniel were married on a gorgeous day in September at Rumbling Bald Resort on Lake Lure. A big Thank you to Shane Snider Photography for his exquisite photography of this sweet and intimate occasion and for letting me show the world their pictures! Lauren and Daniel looked amazing, and I hope their day was everything they dreamed it to be!  

When Lauren first contacted me and asked me to assist her with Day-of Coordination and told me they were getting married at Rumbling Bald Resort on Lake Lure, I could not have been more delighted. Nestled in the valley with beautiful mountain views and perched on a beach of white sand, Rumbling Bald has the best mix of natural elegance and timeless beauty. A beautiful venue paired with two fun-loving people is the perfect recipe for an amazing day and a wonderful celebration! In this magnificent mountain setting, Lauren and Daniel came to share and celebrate their very special day. It was the perfect backdrop for them to create unforgettable moments, surrounded by family and friends.  

 Lauren and Daniel are so much fun together! Their personalities fit so well and their love is so apparent every time I saw them together.  They were such a delight to work with.  What a gorgeous place and a wonderful celebration!  Lauren and Daniel decided to see each other before the ceremony for a "First Look" - it was definitely exciting to watch them catch that first glimpse of each other and was particularly touching to see Daniel almost drop to his knees when he saw his lovely bride.


Patrick Siler, Daniel's brother officiated the ceremony which was held at the Lakeside Gazebo and was a poignant mix of laughter and tears, highlighted with beautiful elements of song and poetry by family and friends. Following the ceremony, the reception was held at the The Lakeside Terrace where guests were seated overlooking breathtaking views of the mountains and lake. The ceremony and cocktail hour music was provided by Frets and Bows who traveled from South Carolina. 

All the decorations were lovingly made by the couples families and friends and included natural elements from nature and the wedding cake was deliciously prepared by The Baker's Box - Henderson, NC. 

 One of the highlights of the evening was the DJ, Mitch Fortune of Mitch Fortune Productions/Remix Weddings  who rocked the night away and all the guests had a blast dancing up a storm. Everyone loved him!!  I had the opportunity to work with Mitch a few years ago at another wedding and was thrilled that Lauren and Daniel had chosen him as their DJ. 


 I can't say enough good things about the staff at Rumbling Bald Resort. Kathy DiNali and the catering staff were outstanding and were very timely and responsive. The guests were all very complimentary at how smoothly everything was executed. A Special thank you to Marie, the Catering Manager for the evening who was gracious and took care of  anything that came up and responded to the guests requests. She was awesome!

 The reception culminated with all the guests lining up outside the Terrace with a Sparkler send-off for Lauren and Daniel - A fun ending to a perfect day.!

Thank you, Lauren and Daniel for allowing me to a part in your day and being so easy and fun to work with.

I wish you joy and happiness for a long and happy life together. . . . Christina
