Super excited for Amelia and Greg’s fall wedding coming up this October at Lake Eden in Black Mountain, NC. Such an amazing time of the year for a wedding in the mountains! Amelia and Greg have been together for 6 years now, and I know their friends and family are looking forward to the day they finally say I do! Amelia is the digital marketing manager for MyPix2.com, but is also an extremely talented jewelry designer, and you can find her work at Mountainside Designs Jewelry. Greg is a real estate agent in the Bozeman and Big Sky area. Read more about this special couple below!
How did you meet each other?
Greg and I met each other when I was a student at unc-chapel hill and he was the owner of a restaurant in town. We had a mutual friend who introduced us and all went out together one night – the rest is history!
When did you get engaged, and how did he ask?
Greg asked me to marry him while on a hike in Yellowstone. Since moving to Montana hiking and exploring has been one of our favorite things to do. We were checking out the Grand Prismatic springs – one of Yellowstone’s most iconic and beautiful thermal features – when we decided to scramble up the side of a really steep hill to get a better view. It was an absolutely perfect and beautiful June day and we had an awesome view. We hiked around a bit until we weren’t around anyone else and he got down on one knee to propose. I was so happy and surprised, hiking back down the hill with shaky legs was tough! He then surprised me with a night at Chico Hot Springs where we had a super tasty dinner and soaked in the natural springs.
What are some of the activities that you like to do together as a couple?
Greg and I both really love to ski – so we spend most of our weekends in the winter at Bridger Bowl or Big Sky. In the summer we love to go hiking with our sweet dog Pisgah and take lots of weekend trips to explore all the cool little towns around Montana. We also purchased a house back in April, so have been putting in some time updating it!
Why did you choose Lake Eden as your wedding location?
We chose Lake Eden for two main reasons; first, because of it’s gorgeous mountain location. We wanted a rustic, natural feel and Lake Eden fit the bill perfectly. Secondly, we wanted our wedding to be a whole weekend long celebration where we could spend as much time as possible with friends and family who would be travelling from all over. Lake Eden has several nice accommodations on site, so a lot of our friends and family will be on the property with us for the entire weekend.
When you think about your wedding, what are you most excited about?
We are so excited to have all of our friends and family together in one place at the same time! That never happens for us as so many of the people who we love are spread out all across the country. We can’t wait to see everyone and celebrate together!
What do you love about each other?
Amelia: What I love about Greg is…
Greg is my best friend and I love sharing our lives together. He is passionate, driven and so thoughtful. He truly cares about everyone in his life and would do anything for anyone. I am so lucky I get to marry him!
Anything else you would want people to know?
Tara is the best wedding planner – she’s been so helpful through every part of the process and we couldn’t have done this without her!!! (THANK YOU!!! xoxo)
