Chetola Resort Wedding | Josh & Kaleia 


December 6, 2022

Congratulations to the latest KDP couple: Josh and Kaleia! They were married in a gorgeous fall wedding this year at Chetola Resort in Blowing Rock, NC. I’m so happy that I was a part of their big day! Josh and Kaleia are so laid back and fun! Kaleia really was one of the most calm brides I’ve had, through the whole process! Even with a rainy day, they were both over the moon happy and excited to be getting married. 

Chetola Resort Wedding Day

I absolutely loved our day at Chetola Resort! It’s absolutely stunning and it offers so much to couples. From great spaces to get ready to beautiful grounds for portraits, there’s plenty to enjoy at every wedding. Kaleia even had her hair and makeup done by their team onsite. Seriously?! How easy is that? Josh and Kaleia hired some amazing vendors and I also enjoyed the time working with them, too, especially their planner Lori of Imagine This! She was SO awesome – so adaptable and on top of things as we adjusted for the weather throughout the day. I can’t say it enough: a good planner is definitely worth their weight in gold for a stress-free wedding day!! 

Josh and Kaleia planned a simply stunning fall wedding day this September. They chose a gorgeous fall palette featuring gold and ivory, and Kaleia had lots of navy blue details to photograph, too. Like I mentioned before, it did rain some during their outdoor ceremony – but cleared up for their portraits so we could enjoy the beautiful fall colors. Afterwards, Josh and Kaleia celebrated the night away with their guests in a tented wedding reception. It was the perfect way to end their wedding day!!

Congratulations again, Josh and Kaleia! I’m so happy for you both and thrilled I could be with you on your special day!!
