Forest Hall at Chatham Mills

Pittsboro, NC Wedding

Austin + Ashley

All the heart eyes for this amazing fall wedding! I knew this day was gonna be amazing before it even came around. Austin + Ashley are such a sweet couple! We got to know them from their engagement session and Ashley’s bridals and we’re so glad they chose us to be a part of their day. They picked Forest Hall at Chatham Mills as their venue, it was the perfect backdrop for their rustic fall theme. Pumpkins, greenery, and farm tables make for two very happy photographers.

They said their vows under this huge gorgeous tree with it’s leaves showing off their fall colors. Add some glowy sunlight filtering through and BAM! – perfection! After the ceremony we stole the couple away for some quick portraits in this little field with green rolling hills and some more of that good good sunlight. I love this part of the day because it’s one of the few moments when a couple gets to just be together outside of the chaos. They fully embraced it and crushed their B&G photos.

Their reception was inside the hall – such a beautiful space! I’m going to call it industrial rustic chic if that’s even a thing. Old floors, rustic beams, chippy paint, huuuuge windows, and market lights everywhere. Ashley + Austin’s family DIY’d their reception, let me tell you, they know what they’re doing! It looked great! There’s something special about family coming together to make a space just right for the people they love. They spent the night celebrating and dancing under the twinkly lights with their friends + family. We sent them off to start their newlywed life with a sparkler exit at the end of the night.

Ashley + Austin, we wish you all the best in this new adventure! There’s nothing quite like it, it’s gonna be a blast!
