Sofie and Lyle’s wedding was such a blast! Sofie is the staff director at Rockbrook Summer Camp for Girls, and since she loves camp so much, it was only natural that she would get married there! Rockbrook is nestled in the gorgeous mountains of Brevard, NC. Driving up the winding road into camp made me feel like I was going to a lush, rhododendron-filled paradise. I was a summer camp junkie I was a kid. I can understand why Sofie loves to live and work in a place like Rockbrook, and why she and Lyle chose if for their wedding. It is magical. The first time I visited was for their engagement session, and it got me so excited for the wedding. Sofie is one of the sweetest, whackiest and funniest ladies you could ever meet. Lyle is calm, kind and the perfect balance to Sofie and together they are the perfect pair.
Sofie (and basically everyone at this wedding) has a killer sense of humor and kept me laughing hysterically all day long. Lyle’s mother is a former wedding planner, and she definitely worked her magic and transformed the dining hall into the most incredible reception space. Seriously, just take a look at all of the thoughtful, beautiful details. Sofie and her bridesmaids picked the flowers themselves and crafted their own bouquets. Sofie’s camp family came together to add personal touches to the celebration, and it felt like everyone involved was a friend of the bride and groom. It rained a bit, but it created such a cozy and vibrant feel. Sofie and Lyle didn’t let it bother them. Sofie kept saying, “We’re at camp!” I love how wet leaves in the forest turn that bright, shiny shade of green and reflect light. Every aspect of the day was beautiful, meaningful and so much FUN. Thank you Gabrielle Von Heyking for shooting with me!
