Franklin Wildflower Cabins – Indo American Wedding

Jennifer & Nishant’s Franklin Wildflower Cabins Indo-American culture inspired religious wedding marked my first destination wedding in the beautiful foothills of Smoky Mountains in Franklin, North Carolina. Wildflower Cabin community has an observation deck and clubhouse. Jennifer and Nishant chose the observation deck overlooking the mountains as their ceremony location and the beautiful clubhouse for hosting the reception. We started our day at the clubhouse making images of the simple yet stunning decor done by groom himself, moving to the Jennifer and Nishant’s cabin documenting them getting ready in their rooms. Immediately after capturing the getting ready moments, we made our way to the observation deck for the Indian style Jain Wedding Ceremony. We spent about an hour after the ceremony in the nearby woods and observation deck itself for the newly wed couple portraits. Jennifer and Nishant were joyfully received by their family & friends waiting at the clubhouse for the reception with a background music played by a bagpiper.
