A Sapphire Valley Wedding

“The best part of the entire week was spending the time with our family,” Maggie said. “It was really the most precious family time in a place that is so special to all of us.”

August 20, 2022

With the bride and groom both living in New York City, the couple relied heavily on Maggie’s mother, Alice Salley, to handle most of the planning details.

The bride and groom wanted an intimate family wedding and the ability to spend quality time with those they love the most.

Growing up, Maggie’s grandparents had a home in Cashiers, N.C., which has always been a special place for their family. When it came time to decide on where to get married, she knew just the place, and as luck would have it — her future husband loved it, too!
