The Carriker Cottage at Old Haigler Inn: Wedding & Bridal Portraits

This micro wedding at the Carriker Cottage at Old Haigler Inn has me convinced that every couple should have two weddings!  Not only was the day laid back and stress free, but we were also able to do a bridal portrait session at the end of the day!  Erin and Patrick decided to move their big celebration to later in the year, but still wanted to get married on their original date.

This sweet cottage, at Old Haigler Inn, was the perfect location for their romantic and intimate micro wedding.  With their immediate family by their sides, these two were joined as one.  They certainly didn’t want their family and friends to feel left out so they streamed the ceremony live so everyone could be a part of their day.

Erin and Patrick love cooking so they decided to cook after the wedding, instead of having it catered!  They popped champagne underneath the string lights and toasted to forever!  What a joy to share this day with them and I can’t wait for the November celebration!
