Top 5 Photo Spots at Sawyer Family Farmstead


Pictures you don’t want to miss out on at your NC Mountain Wedding:

The Cashiers, Highlands, Glenville area is said to be, “a little slice of heaven” and filled with great spots for pictures. For your mountain wedding, you will not have to work hard at finding an amazing backdrop! Most couples work with their photographer ahead of time and create a list of must have photos. This way no one looks back and says, “I wish we had….”  When I got married I didn’t have a list of pictures and really regret it. So, first of all create a list. Give it some thought. Think about the venue. Look at pictures from Facebook or Pinterest that have been taken at the venue and see if there are any you absolutely love.

Photographers love it here at Sawyer Family Farmstead because we have a ton great spots to capture that perfect mountain wedding. From our amazing view of the Blue Ridge Mountains to the Fraser Fir Christmas trees and rustic barns, it is hard to choose just one favorite place. So, we narrowed it down to 5 favorite picture places. (see pictures below)

Here are our top 5 picks:

  • The Pergola – With the majestic Blue Ridge Mountains in the background and stunning Lake Glenville, it doesn’t get any better than this spot for pictures. Whether it be for the first look, the ceremony, wedding party, bridal portrait or a group picture, it has the perfect backdrop.
  • The Old Barn – it is absolutely great for that perfect dress picture, as are the antlers. They are both beautiful, yet rustic. The color contract makes for a great shot.
  • The Chimney – not very many places can give you this option. Our Homestead Chimney is over a 100 years old!
  • Laurel Archway with lights – capturing a sweet moment with the couple is important and the lights make this a romantic picture one that radiates tender love.
  • In the Fraser Firs – This is a unique location and can be a lot of fun.
  • Bonus – picture with bridesmaids each holding a sign that says how they know the bride. For example: kindergarten, cousin, college roommate
