I offer you the opportunity to “Come Get Married in Deep Creek!”

Imagine an intimate and effortless lakefront Deep Creek wedding … The water will be reflecting diamonds at your feet and the lush mountain views will be the backdrop for a most memorable day …


We can take those seemingly far-away dreams and make them come to life this spring! …. Jessica Fike Photography and The Deep Creek Wedding are joining together to create the first-ever Deep Creek Pop-Up!


This wedding package is designed to fit any budget and it’s perfect for the couples not sure how to go about planning details, those who are interested in a small ceremony, or those who want a bit of an escape-from-it-all elopement option on the water’s edge.


From the beginning, you’ll be in direct contact with two locals sharing their extensive wedding vendor connections and vast Deep Creek knowledge. Did you know Jessica has photographed over 200 weddings?! Both of us are here in Deep Creek 24/7 and we will be here for you through the entire process with no additional cost.


Our specific Pop-Up package will offer the couple, and up to 30 guests, access to our expansive lakefront lawn, Deep Creek’s largest floating dock, a day-of-coordinator, a ceremony officiant, the best local beauty vendors, a sophisticated floral design, and two hours with Jessica – an amazingly talented natural light photographer.

To make this special deal happen, The Deep Creek Pop-Up offer has VERY limited availability — message us today for full package details at
