Nick & Anna are SO Cute together! 🙂

They were in town in August to do some Wedding Planning & made time to shoot their Engagement Portrait Session in Downtown Asheville while they were in town!

Anna is from Asheville and she and Nick live and work in Rocky Mount, NC on the Eastern end of North Carolina!

Anna moved east after she finished up at UNC Chapel Hill, which is where she met Nick who {like me} is an East Carolina Alumni {GO PIRATES!}

Nick & Anna will be saying I DO next July at Lake Eden in Black Mountain, NC.

Congratulations you two!

SO Excited to work together this year!

Drew & Brittany are the SWEETEST!!! 🙂

They’re originally from the Florence/Myrtle Beach area and recently bought a home & settled down in Asheville as they’re both Nurses at Mission Hospital! 🙂

Brittany & Drew really did the small, intimate, family Destination Wedding well!

My FAVORITE part was all the LOCAL Details about their Wedding that they incorporated into their day because they wanted to share some local flavor with their guests!

Catering by 12 Bones BBQ

Local Craft Brews from Pisgah Brewing & Asheville Brewing Co.

and

Cake/Cupcakes from Short Street Bakery

They were Married on August 8th at Laughing Waters Retreat Center in the Hickory Nut Forest {just outside of Asheville}, which was a PERFECT reflection of their vibe as a couple because  they LOVE all things outdoors!

It was a really laid back, cozy and lovely Wedding Day for the two of them & their friends & family, many of whom traveled from around the South East to attend!

Enjoy!

About REFERRALS: Drew & Brittany were referred to me by someone from my hometown, who I went to school with!

Brittany currently works with Sarah at the Hospital & mentioned that she still needed a Wedding Photographer during a shift at work one day & was referred to me that way!

As a result, I will be gifting a COMPLIMENTARY Child and/or Family Portrait Session to Sarah as a Thank You for the referral! 🙂

Sarah – Please, get in touch when you’re ready!

Thanks a Million!

Gavin & Natalia’s Beautiful Wedding was my first Wedding back in the states after returning from the summer in Ireland!

{I have one more Wedding to Blog from Ireland} BUT I wanted to go ahead and share Gavin & Natalia’s Big Day with you first! 🙂

Gavin & Natalia met on Match.com when they were both living in Indianapolis!

{Can you believe it actually works!?!}

The began dating, fell in Love & when Natalia finished her graduate studies, they moved to Raleigh together for Natalia’s job!

Gavin & Natalia fell in love with our Gorgeous WNC Mountains, particularly the Highlands/Cashiers area & when it was time to say I DO, they wanted to share the magic of our mountains with their family & friends!

So, they hosted a lovely Destination Wedding in Highlands on August 1st, 2015!

Gavin & Natalia tied the knot atop a mountain Christmas Tree Farm with a Celebration which followed at Sapphire Valley Country Club!

Here are just a few of my favorite moments from their Big Day!

Enjoy!

What would a Wedding Day be without at least one mishap!?

Natalia’s parents got lost in the mountains {with no cell service} on their way to the Ceremony Site & were a couple hours late {rescue squads and highway patrol were dispatched, it was a scary situation for a little while}…

Finally, Natalia gave up not seeing her groom before the ceremony because she NEEDED a hug…

LOVE this Sweet Shot of Gavin comforting his Wife prior to their Ceremony! 🙂

These guys met on Craigslist!

No, really! Chris met Laura when she responded to his Craigslist Ad for a Roommate!!! 😉

Laura says that when she moved in with Chris & another roommate a few years ago, she says that she was attracted to Chris right away!

They grew in their friendship as roommates first & a short time later, that friendship turned into a Romantic Relationship

& Baby makes three! 🙂

Chris & Laura will be saying I DO tomorrow at Addison Farms Vineyard in Marshall, NC {about a half hour outside of Asheville}

They’ll Tie the Knot in front of their Adorable Son, Warren & their Family & Friends {many of whom will be driving up from Georgia for their Big Day}!

About a month ago, Chris, Laura, Warren & I met up in Downtown Asheville for a Saturday Morning Family/Engagement Session & what follows is the beautiful result!

Enjoy!

Perhaps my favorite part about shooting Bridal Portrait Sessions {other than the obvious – posing Beautiful Brides against Gorgeous Landscapes} is SHARING them!!!

Luckily, I didn’t have to wait too long to share Melissa’s Lovely Bridal Portrait Session!

Melissa will be saying I DO this afternoon at Key Falls Inn in Brevard, NC which is just about an hour outside of Asheville!

Many Congratulations to Melissa & Jim!

& Best Wishes for a Long & Happy Life Together!

It’s always such a strange, funny coincidence, the ways that people meet their match!

You just NEVER know!

Literally, every stranger you meet, could possibly be {IT} for you!

You could bump into them at the grocery store or you could have a random conversation at a brewery…

The possibilities are truly ENDLESS & this knowledge gives me great Hope for my own future! 🙂

Jim & Melissa met through mutual friends but in a pretty unusual way…

A few years ago Melissa was planning a Road Trip to Florida to visit some friends & was asked to give this guy named Jim a ride down.

Jim was also friends with Melissa’s friends {sort of} 🙂

Jim had been online gaming with one of the guys for a while before that, they hit it off & Jim was invited down to Florida for a visit…

Melissa {reasonably suspicious} had NO IDEA that her Soul Mate would sit down beside her in the car that day!

They laugh about it now, they say that their first date was a 12 + hour road trip to Florida! 😉

I know all of this because we got together in downtown Asheville about a month ago {while they were in town to tie up loose ends for the Wedding} to shoot their Engagement Portrait Session in downtown! Naturally, we started the session with a Beer from Catawba Brewing & then bounced around downtown to a few other spots {you may recognize Pack Square Park or  Vance Monument!}

I offer Complimentary Engagement Sessions to all of my Wedding Couples {because it’s awesome} & also because it’s a really great way to REALLY get to know my clients before their Wedding Day!

Jim & Melissa will be saying I DO tomorrow at Key Falls Inn in Brevard, NC!

Congratulations guys, I’m SO Happy to be part of it!
