Whimsical Asheville Wedding at Mount Airy Farm Estate

November 2, 2017 | colleen

Rachael and Lyle’s backyard wedding at Mount Airy Farm Estate was perfectly whimsical and romantic in every way. We love how they let the breathtaking views of the mountains and trees stand out and influence their choice for minimal decor. With a color palette to complement the outdoors, their reception under the stars is as dreamy as ever. Towards the end of the night, the celebration turned into one giant dance party, and Autumn Harrison Photography captured all the joy and killer dance moves.

The Couple:

Rachael and Lyle

The Wedding:

Mount Airy Farm Estate, Asheville, North Carolina

My style inspiration was a whimsical/boho/mountain look. My mid-back length hair was curled and pinned back on the right side. My dress was long sleeved lace on top, with a deep V in the front, and a beautiful white crepe on the bottom with a long train. My shoes, from BHLDN, had a vintage glam vibe. They were cream satin wedges with a touch of gold.

We wanted something intimate and not “themed,” so we decide to look into private homes. We found a beautiful 40 acre estate, with a 6,100 sq ft home for us to enjoy with our family for the week. It was just west of Asheville, NC and the exterior space had the perfect layout and views for an unforgettable celebration!

There were so many amazing moments, it’s hard to pin one down. Walking down the aisle was surreal, the wind sweeping my cathedral length veil as we had our first kiss was picturesque, and the dance party…oh the dance party! 


Autumn was amazing to work with! She was so accommodating and helped to bring a calm to the fast paced day. We were so happy with her beautiful work.

Most importantly we wanted the perfect setting. We envisioned a whimsical outdoor wedding in the mountains, with breathtaking views. A place that we would dream about and appreciate throughout our life together. The food and music being on point was a MUST as well!

The estate land and views were so breathtaking that we knew we wanted to keep the details simple, to showcase the natural beauty all around us. Our decor consisted mostly of flowers and lanterns and votives with warm candlelight.
