CHIMNEY ROCK WEDDING, JUNE 16, 2007
Just at sunset on a cool and breezy afternoon Carol Goldberg and Robbie Gerard were married by Rev. Jeanne Matthews Sommer on the top of Chimney Rock with a long view down the valley across Lake Lure. Brad Ernhardt played Sheep May Safely Graze by Bach quietly on his guitar . At the edges of the rock tourists were respectfully silent during the ceremony. At the end of the ceremony they clapped. And I, Bill Mosher, took these photographs of the event. See the first 15 pages in PDF version here. See all of the photographs at Flickr.com (search for billybaba and look in the Hidden River Weddings collection.
I grew up in India where my parents were Presbyterian agricultural missionaries and have taught at Warren Wilson College most of my life. My photographs are of north India and Sri Lanka where I have traveled many times; of Germany, which is my wife, Kathe's, home; and of the Swannanoa Valley and Asheville, North Carolina and of students and staff at Warren Wilson College, in Swannanoa just outside Asheville. Lately I have also been photographing weddings at Hidden River Events.
