About the Book
Lauren Moeller and Patrick Carter married at Hidden River in Swannanoa, North Carolina on October 15, 2008. With their families and close friends surrounding them, and with their daughter Payton, joining in, they were married by Jeanne Sommer on the bank of the Swannanoa River. After the wedding they ate dinner in the late afternoon sun with the mountains around them. They danced and cut the cake as they were entertained by the music of Julee Glaub.
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.
