Kaylan & Derek's Castle-Inspired Wedding | Sylva, NC

What can we say?! Kaylan & Derek's mountainside wedding in a castle was both elegant and relaxed, charming and thoroughly amazing. Not only that, but these love birds had the most easy going personality that would make any wedding absolutely perfect.

But before we take a look at their story, here are some of the beautiful touches that are a part of Castle Ladyhawke, along with the details Kaylan & Derek used to personalize their day. We especially love how they incorporated their current hometown in Vermont into the fabric of their favors & decor. 

Despite all this gorgeous, the details that Kaylan wore were somehow even more magnificent. I especially love the pink hues in her dress and the high attention to detail in her accessories & bridesmaids attire. 

Dying over here- she is unbeatable. 

And, as expected, the ceremony location was absolutely killer. We love this spot tucked away in the mountains. It threatened to rain all day, but fortunately the rain held off until much, much later! 

One of our favorite parts of the day is getting together the Wedding Party for group photos. This is really where everyone's personality shines through! Kaylan had told us at our very first conversation that Derek was such a class clown, and we absolutely love how these photos reflect that little piece of him. We also love the girls Kaylan chose for her bridesmaids- three of her closest friends who knew how to make her laugh in the cutest ways! This couple so had wedding party goals.  

Finally, the reception! Everyone relaxes just a little bit, and of course enjoys some delicious food and dancing. I simply love how Kaylan & Derek put their own personality into their reception schedule- food, cake and games first, formalities later! 

As we always say, our absolute favorite time is when we snag the bride and groom by themselves. And look just how cute they are! I especially love these sweet moments together. 

Kaylan & Derek's perfect chemistry and fun-filled personalities have stolen our hearts. <3 Wishing you both the absolute best!
