River Landing is a beautiful woodsy escape located in Wallace, North Carolina. Just a quick 40 minute drive from Wilmington, this place has multiple venues on site as well as an entire gated neighborhood full of trees, ponds, covered bridges, and even a little sand beach, which is why my favorite spot for weddings here is the River Lodge, where Madison and Joey chose to get married on this GORGEOUS fall day in October. This was one of the first weddings I had this year that really felt like fall weather, and the colors of the trees were slowly starting to change. Their little beach front ceremony was so gorgeous, in that creeeeamy golden hour lighting, followed by a dancing filled reception on the outdoor deck. I am still completely obsessed with the colors of this wedding, everything went together so well, those bridesmaid dresses paired with the woodsy backgrounds and Madisons beautiful smile…. ooooooof. A DREAM. And one of my favorite little details was their guest book: a record sitting on top of a record player that you could sign, and it was their favorite band, Tame Impala (which is an excellent choice if you ask me). I LOVE that. Personal, creative, and so cute! Congrats to these two for tying the knot!!!
