About Heather Barr • “Some of my favorite shots that I’ve ever taken are ones that just about didn’t happen. Those times when I could be concerned about what someone else might think of me… (maybe my attention was drawn to something that wasn’t happening in the spotlight at the time, or a delicate, emotional moment where I have to be careful not to intrude) but I’m always happy that I did capture that moment. These shots are almost always of those moments happen in a split second and then they’re gone, and yet captured on film forever.” ~ Heather Barr

About Jason Barr • “The best things in life are nearest: Breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers at your feet, duties at your hand, the path of right just before you. Then do not grasp at the stars, but do life’s plain, common work as it comes, certain that daily duties and daily bread are the sweetest things in life.” ~ Robert Louis Stevenson

Alison + Gregory
“Everything about our elopement at the Mast Farm Inn on May 6, 2015, was perfect. I’m sure there were some minor glitches along the way, but the beautiful thing about eloping was that we did not allow ourselves to worry over the little things. The day was about us. It was about sharing our love for one another in a gorgeous setting, and capturing the moments of our story through the lens of a camera.” ~  Alison

Amber + Jeff
“When we found the Mast Farm Inn I was instantly sold. We booked as soon as we could and began the countdown. Our day was nothing short of magical. We were able to be together just as we always were. We wanted our day to be about us. We are so happy we chose to elope and would not change a single detail about the day. I never thought I would find my fairy tale, but when Jeff and I came together I knew my happy ending would finally come true.” ~ Amber

Ashley + Max
“We’ve been together for fifteen happy years and we decided it was time to tie the knot. We knew we wanted the ceremony to be outdoors and we knew we wanted it to be all about us. We discovered the Mast Farm Inn and it looked beautiful! It was just the two of us and every minute was precious and perfect.” ~ Ashley

Emily + Nicholas 
“Emily + Nicholas eloped (a real deal kind of elopement, the romantic, top-secret kind) at the historic Mast Farm Inn in Valle Crucis, NC on New Years Eve. Very intimate, just the two of them, as they intended it to be. Organic, rustic-chic, vintage-inspired, free spirited… this couple totally inspired me.” ~ Heather

Gina + Peter
“I saw a few NC inns that offered elopement packages, but your photos for the Mast Farm Inn and all the reviews won me over.  It was exactly our style. Plus, Danielle made everything so easy!  The hardest decision was what to wear.  That day was full of smiles, laughs, awesome people, great food, and beautiful scenery, which was exactly what we wanted.” ~ Gina

Karen + Darren
“Fall is here! The air is crisp, the leaves are looking their very best. Colors are rich and vibrant! Karen and Darren chose the perfect time to elope in the Carolina mountains. Karen and Darren had an intimate elopement ceremony at The Mast Farm Inn in Valle Crucis, NC. The couple spent their honeymoon hidden away in the very romantic and not to mention cozy Loom House at The Mast Farm Inn.” ~ Heather

Karla + Stewart
“Elopement is a marriage conducted in sudden and secretive fashion, usually involving hurried flight away from one’s place of residence together with one’s beloved with the intention of getting married. Leap of Faith In Grand Style, is an OMG Let’s Elope Now package for when your mind’s made up, you think sometimes more is more, and making it grand but just us, makes a lot of sense. Eloping at The Inn is wonderful and easy.” ~ The Mast Farm Inn

Lauran + Timothy
“…I decided to go alone because I wanted to be able to have no commitments and just walk everyday and meet new people and experience this journey just by myself. I was wrong about the solitude part because I met Tim on my very first day on the Camino and his third day of hiking… The Camino ended and we’re weren’t quite sure how it would all end up because of the distance between us. We both got back to the states and quickly realized there was no way we could not be together. We decided to travel back and forth from Nashville to Boone and long distanced for nearly a year. I decided to move to Nashville one year after the Camino and then a year after that we were married on June 9th. We always want to remember June.” ~ Lauran

Janie + Stan
“For my birthday last year Stan took me to Valle Crucis and I think that is when we both felt like we had found “the one”! We fell in love with that area too, it’s so peaceful and beautiful and we both love the music, culture, art and great food there! We chose to elope because we loved the simplicity and ease of it. We spent the day together but I didn’t let Stan see me in my dress until I came out of the house for our ceremony. It really was magical and special and emotional for both of us. The weather was perfect, April provided lovely music and the idyllic scenery of the Mast Farm made it perfect. Our wedding day was a very lovely, easy day. We had a great breakfast at the Mast Farm Inn then spent the morning visiting downtown Boone including various art galleries and local shops. ” ~ Janie

Jennifer + Adam 
“I found The Mast Farm Inn on Pinterest. We originally wanted to go to Bora Bora or Washington state but we did not feel like traveling too far, so we looked around and I saw your elopement pictures on Pinterest and I fell in love with the place. Adam agreed that it was beautiful, so we went for it. We would not change a thing. We loved the place, the people and the food.” ~ Jennifer • “Oh how we LOVE sweet, intimate wedding ceremonies! Jennifer + Adam were so much fun to work with, beautiful and natural and so in love… They had their ceremony in the Granary cabin, which is where they stayed during their stay at the Inn. After the ceremony we walked around the picturesque property at The Mast Farm Inn and just let the session flow naturally.~ Heather

Krista + John
“We were engaged in Charleston, SC in August 2014 after dating for a year and a half. We had originally planned to get married in October 2015. Because this was a second marriage for both of us, we finally decided on a simple, out of town elopement. We began planning at the end of January, and stumbled upon the Mast Farm Inn on Pinterest. When we saw your photography, we were hooked!” ~ Krista

Sarah + Carlos
“The Mast Farm Inn was the perfect choice for our elopement, we wanted something intimate, romantic, all inclusive from a wedding planning standpoint, and a relaxing getaway….and we got all of that! We especially loved the animals in the pastor behind our cabin, we are HUGE animal lovers! We enjoyed the Granary cabin to the fullest for 5 days, we were married behind the cabin and enjoyed the view of the beautiful arbor and flowers all week and our wedding meal was catered in the cabin! Our wedding was perfection. Heather did an amazing job of capturing our beautiful day…and our fun personalities! We are so pleased with our entire experience, it exceeded all expectations!” ~ Sarah

Stacey + David
“David and I have been friends for over 9 years, and to finally be united under the careful hand and time of God has been such a joy, comfort, and pleasure for the soul. We’re perfectly imperfect people making our way, and doing it together makes us a force, hopefully of love so strong that it will give our children a patient and steady grace to find their life and soul’s perfect match. I have never felt such a full feeling of love in a home than when we are all together. Even since we have been married, the feeling just keeps getting stronger. Thank you, Heather, again for capturing a very intimate time between the two of us.” ~ Stacey

Sweet + Simple
“I adore sweet + simple elopements at The Mast Farm Inn in Valle Crucis, NC. While I love all of the beautiful details that come with a wedding, I also love the “simplicity” of an elopement. Sometimes it’s nice to be free of all of the complexity that sometimes goes along with a wedding. The great thing about an elopement is, you can do it right. When most people think of an elopement, they often think of going to the city hall. You can totally have the wedding dress of your dreams, a luxurious bridal suite, hair + make-up, a lovely bridal bouquet, a sweet wedding cake-for-two, a beautiful destination location with breathtaking scenery for your ceremony, live music, a photographer, a videographer, and a romantic dinner + dream honeymoon get-a-way adventure. If you’re considering an elopement, why not do it right!” ~ Heather

“Had so much fun with this couple! Lots of laughs, that’s for sure! Beautiful Tiffany got ready in the Cousin Sara room at The Mast Farm Inn. Absolutely loved her simple and graceful bridal look… Hair & Make-up by Heather Rogers of Haircut 101.”  ~ Heather Barr

Allison + Wilson
“The venue was so ‘us’ and we loved how green and lush the grounds looked that day. Our theme was really ‘fish and family’ and I enjoyed working in a lot of carefully curated details that incorporated those ideas (some of which were surprises!). The ceremony was intimate and meaningful and we couldn’t have asked for anything more.” ~ Allison + Wilson

Amy + Chris
“We wanted to get married in the mountains and specifically outdoors, so we had to have a destination wedding (because there are no mountains in Florida!). We wanted a rustic-chic type wedding because that matches our style and personalities, and so the Mast Farm was the perfect venue. The gardens are gorgeous and the barn and Inn are amazing features of the property. The Mast Farm was exactly what I envisioned for our dream wedding.” ~ Amy

Angela + Chad 
“Our love story began in the fall of 2011. I was in Boston and Chad was in Key West. He posted an amazing picture of the Key West Sunset on Facebook and of course I commented. It was that picture he took that brought us together. As soon as we both returned to NC from our vacations we had our first date and our journey began. In our first months of dating we decided to plan a weekend get away to The Historic Mast Farm Inn. That get away brought us closer together and it was there we fell more in love with each other and also with The Mast Farm Inn. Fast forward to December 25, 2014. Chad ask me to marry him! We immediately starting planning our “Big Day”! We both had already decided The Mast Farm Inn was going to be the place where we would get married. And we did March 8, 2015!” ~ Angela

“Anna + John traveled from Georgia up to the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Valle Crucis, NC to have their rustic farm wedding at the historic Mast Farm Inn. They celebrated with family and friends on a lovely day in June. They laughed, they cried, they celebrated and they danced the night away!” ~ Heather

April + Dawson
“We kept the affair very small — around 20 guests. It made it very special to be surrounded by such a small group of people who care about us. Advice for future brides — it really worked well for us to keep it small and intimate. It cut down on the amount of stress and drama associated with weddings and helped us focus on what’s really important about the day and looking forward to the future.” ~ April

Ashley + David
“The menu was my DREAM wedding menu! We served: Crispy vegetable springs rolls, Mediterranean couscous stuffed mushrooms, Cornmeal cracker with roasted tomato, chevre and baby basil, Crab cake with mustard seed tartar, Smoked shrimp with mango relish and coconut aioli, Salmon gravlax with herbed crème fraiche and local caviar, Cornbread with house-cured pork belly, greens and molasses. The dessert buffet for the guests included “The Mast Farm Inn Incredible Edible Fruitcake Nor For Mailing to Friend or Foe”, Mixed Berry Cobbler, & Hummingbird Cake. We selected everything straight off Simplicity’s spring catering menu, no tasting & catering negotiations at all! That was one of the reasons we knew The Mast Farm Inn was our dream destination, I saw a sample Simplicity menu online, and knew instantly they understood the kind of food we like! ” – Ashley

Christina + David

“I would say we were going for an elopement with a couple of friends It rained heavily all morning that day and I was getting pretty worried. I was looking so forward to the amazing pictures at the Mast Farm Inn and I did not want to have the wedding inside. As the ladies were getting ready that morning, I was starting to brood as I ran around getting ready with an umbrella. About an hour before the wedding, the skies cleared and the sun came out and we actually had to wait for the sun to go down to take pictures in the open areas since the sunshine was so bright. We had a wonderfully relaxed wedding with just our closest friends. We had amazing drinks, wonderful food, and just a great time celebrating our wedding.” ~ Christina

Jamie + Jeffrey
“We are so laid back and simple that it really flowed and everyone got to relax and enjoy themselves. I hear so many people say that if they had it to do all over again they would go for a small wedding and of course I agree with them. Everyone around the dinner table was so magical, our ceremony like a page out of history in the parlor and the spirit of the mountains swirling around us just made the whole experience surreal. Waking up in the morning to a breakfast table full of our friends and family, seriously amazing. The Mast Farm Inn was an idea from my very good friend who moved from Texas to North Carolina… We came up during Christmas and Danielle was nice enough to meet us there over the holiday and we were set right away. The whole thing was flawless. The chef was incredible and the dinner was five star to say the least. I have to say that all of the food, not just the dinner, was incredible. I cannot sing enough praises… I really love, love, loved Danielle and the whole crew at The Mast Farm Inn” ~ Jamie

Jess + Alex
“It was the perfect Fall day in Valle Crucis, NC… the air was crisp, making the The Mast Farm Inn and their historic cabins all the more cozy. Guests enjoyed a stay at The Mast Farm Inn, and a hearty breakfast to start the wedding day. The ceremony took place in front of the historic Loom House, which sits to the side of the Inn. The couple and their guests enjoyed cocktail hour and a tented reception, with dinner served from the amazing Simplicity at The Mast Farm Inn, and s’mores under the stars, then more dancing the night away!” ~ Heather

Kelly + Billy 
“Kelly and Billy tied the knot at the beautiful Mast Farm Inn. The ceremony took place across the street from the Inn, among all kinds of beautiful and vibrant flowers. The Mast Farm Inn is a world renowned historic country inn and restaurant in the Valle Crucis Historical District of Watauga County, North Carolina.” ~ Heather

Leesha + Christopher
“We started our wedding planning with the idea of having a traditional ceremony and reception. Wow, did that plan quickly change. We realized the most important thing about our wedding day was that we were marrying each other. Yes, our family and friends are very special to us, but we wanted to focus on just the two of us. That’s when we found the beautiful Mast Farm Inn and decided to have a small intimate outdoor ceremony.” ~ Leesha

“We were so honored to be a part of Leigh + Brian’s wedding day celebration! The ceremony and reception took place at the very charming, very intimate Mast Farm Inn – nestled in the heart of the NC mountains in historic Valle Crucis, NC. We are so happy that Leigh + Brian chose us to capture the story of their day! We thoroughly enjoyed spending time with them and their guests, not to mention if gave us an excuse to head up to one of our favorite places on earth.” ~ Heather

Sarah + Jeremiah
“It was one of those days where we were praying for nice weather. 60-90% chance of rain… even the weather man said ‘It’s not a matter of if we get rain, it’s a matter of when’. As we drove up the mountain through the fog and rain we prayed ‘Please God, just let us have some nice weather for this wedding ceremony!’ and we just hoped for the best. When we arrived in the beautiful town of Valle Crucis, we noticed the clouds seemed to be breaking up! We arrived at The Mast Farm Inn and the weather was going to be nice enough to have the ceremony outdoors as planned! And the rain held off for the whole wedding ceremony! The light was absolutely beautiful. Thank you, God, for keeping the rain off our heads and giving us beautiful light! Needless to say, Sarah and Jeremiah’s wedding ceremony was absolutely beautiful.” ~ Heather

“Sheryl + Allen It was like a scene right out of “White Christmas”, beautiful reds and whites. Snow quietly falling from the sky. Sheryl + Allen were married in a winter wonderland, which is exactly what they had dreamed of. The ceremony & reception took place at The Mast Farm Inn in Valle Crucis, NC. The snow only added to the already magical town. It was like being in a snow globe.” ~ Heather

Victoria + Peter celebrated their wedding along with family + friends in a stunning setting at The Mast Farm Inn, a “refined, yet relaxed country setting” in Valle Crucis, NC. Following an elegant ceremony, their guests celebrated with them, and enjoyed amazing food during an outside social hour followed by a lovely lunch reception. Everyone enjoyed fantastic live music, breathtaking surroundings, and relaxed in the simplicity of the day.” ~ Heather
