Real Weddings: Katie + Brandon


It was a priority of Katie and Brandon for their wedding to feel like a vacation for their guests. Once they found the mountain retreat of the Hawkesdene Estate in Andrews, North Carolina, they knew it was the perfect location! The bridal party took over the mansion and guest houses of the estate for the three days before the wedding, celebrating and crafting many of the details of the big event. Katie was insanely resourceful, using found and salvaged items details such as their seating chart, escort card display, and table numbers. What a gorgeous rustic mountain wedding with beautiful photos by the talented TimWill Photography!

    I used to go to Libby Krask at The Mint in Athens, Ga. When she left The Mint, I couldn’t and still can’t find what salon she is now working. The Mint said they hated her leaving, and they think she is working in Atlanta somewhere. I have been looking for her and would LOVE to find out where she is working now, she was the very best making my hair look amazing! If you know where she is now working I would love to know. Your photography is beautiful! I love how clear it is. It tells a story with no words.
    Thank You,
