… Scenes from a wedding on Lake Lure!

“I’m scared of everything. I’m scared of what I saw, I’m scared of what I did, of who I am, and most of all I’m scared of walking out of this room and never feeling the rest of my whole life the way I feel when I’m with you.” – Dirty Dancing

The 1987 hit, Dirty Dancing, made girls everywhere want to get away for the summer, find a gorgeous man to have a fling with and learn to dance! The setting of a lakeside retreat seemed like something that only happens in the movies.

Over the July 4th  holiday weekend, Merrymaking Events was fortunate to be able to be part of Karen and Jason’s wedding in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains at Rambling Bald Resort on Lake Lure, and also the location of many famous scenes in Dirty Dancing. As a girl who owned white jeans because Baby had them and who made her older brother practice doing “the lift” in the pool just like Johnny did in the river, I was thrilled to be able to be at such a beautiful location. I was even more excited to see Karen and Jason so overjoyed and enjoying every second of their big day!

Set to the bright summer colors of green, yellow and orange … this wedding was full of detail. Handmade table runners from Crate & Barrel, matching cocktail napkins, monogrammed glasses, buckets of flip-flops and a very cheery candy bar … just to name a few.

The “S” cupcakes, wedding cake and adorable University of Tennessee Groom’s Cake were from City Bakery Café in Asheville… and they were delicious! The photos from John Gillespie, John Gillespie Photography, are simply stunning. The White Chocolate Band really got people moving and grooving! Thank you to our host of amazing vendors, the wonderful wait staff at Rambling Bald and the new Mr.& Mrs. Smith for trusting us with the details of their big day!

They are a beautiful couple with amazing families and friends. We wish them many years of happiness and joy!
