Happily Ever After: Part One

Back in high school, I would visit this tower and it never ceased to amaze me that something so beautiful and unique could be just outside of Roanoke. It's a tower that was built by hand using rocks from the nearby creek bed. Layer by layer, crafted with love, the tower grew to be a spectacle amongst the mountains. It never occurred to me how beautiful this tower would be, especially in a bridal setting, until last year. I had to wait all winter with this idea in my head... an idea that grew like wildfire. First I wanted just a model with a dress, then as I shared my idea, more and more vendors wanted a part of it. I am so glad I got to work with all of these talented people because I could not have done it without them. 

While the tower isn't exactly common knowledge to most people, the ones who do know where it is know that it's location is sacred. So please don't be offended if I don't hand out directions (quite frankly, I couldn't tell you how to get there anyway).
