A Relaxed Mountain Wedding in Andrews, North Carolina

An outdoorsy duo host an intimate wedding weekend complete with evening bonfires, group hikes and hand-picked beers from local microbreweries.

Because Hawkesdene House offered so many outdoor activities and overnight accommodations, the couple opted for more than a wedding—they hosted a wedding weekend. "Our vision was that we get our closest friends and family together to take part in our commitment to one another and to have fun and get to know each other during a relaxed weekend," Lindsay says. "We could say our vows to each other in a beautiful place in the mountains, hold bonfires in the evening, and hike and hang out with our family and friends during the day."
