Deep Creek Lake is full of hidden treasures and one of the newest additions to our collection of gems is Blue Moon Rising. Blue Moon Rising is part of an ecotourism movement and supports sustainability all while providing adorable cottages and cabins for overnights and a gorgeous outdoor venue for your wedding ceremony. Get lost in the woods with Blue Moon Rising and Amberlee Christey Photography.

From Amberlee Christey Photography:
Blue Moon Rising was such an awesome new venue! It was like driving up to a bunch of little hobbit houses all over the place and then a fairy tale ceremony spot! And the teepees for the cocktail hour and reception!!!! How fun is that?!?!?! It is so nice that both families plus some have the houses to stay in for the whole weekend and can spend time together around campfires! Both families were the absolute nicest too and gave the best hugs ever! One of my favorite things Abby’s dad said for the toast was, “You know as the father of the bride, you are most likely going to find something you don’t like about the guy who’s going to take away your daughter, but not with Hank. We’ve never felt that way.” Insert melted heart right there folks. I could seriously go on and on about the day and the love that was just flowing.

When Hank proposed he also gave Veda a little tiny ring, that she wore at the wedding. What a sweet and perfect way to symbolize his dedication to this adorable little lady! We love it.
