It was a beautiful July day in the Carolina High Country. 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. Victoria + Peter also had various yard games for their guests to enjoy (bocce, croquet, ladder ball, and their very favorite of them all – corn hole).
To give you a little more of their story......
Victoria + Peter attended high school together and would often hang out as friends with the same group of friends. Their first impressions of each other were;
"Peter viewed Victoria as a small, quiet girl with very curly hair; Victoria thought Peter was a complete nerd. The summer after graduation in 2006, Peter phoned Victoria and asked, ‘So, you wanna like, hang out, you know, exclusively?’ Hanging out turned into a summer romance which made leaving for their respective colleges (many hours apart), very difficult..."
“...It only took one year for us to realize that we wanted to be together."
– As told by Victoria + Peter
“Nobody said it was easy It's such a shame for us to part Nobody said it was easy No one ever said it would be this hard Oh, take me back to the start.”

“So from here to there, from school to school, and state to state, we have followed each other. Now as we continue our paths toward becoming physicians, we are excited to begin our first chapter as husband and wife.” –Victoria + Peter
