They say a little rain on your Wedding Day is a Good Omen…

If that’s true, Andre & Katelan Vandenberg are gonna be together Forever & they’re gonna be Blessed Abundantly in their Marriage! 😉

I hope that for all of my Wedding Couples anyway, but I especially hope that for this Sweet Couple!

Andre & Katelan met at Appalachian State University & after college, they headed for Sunny Florida for Andre’s job!

At the end of their time in Florida, Andre proposed & the couple happily move back to North Carolina to be closer to their Family!

Both Andre & Katelan are originally from Western North Carolina and chose Downtown Asheville’s Celine & Co. / On Broadway for their October nuptials!

I was SO Excited about all of the Downtown Portrait Possibilities for Andre & Katelan’s Big Day!!!

BUT, the weather had other plans for us! 😉

A little {and by a little, I mean A LOT} rain couldn’t stop this parade &  we made the best of it anyway!

Enjoy!

Ohhhh, I’m SO Excited to share Jesse & Julie’s Beautiful Eseeola Lodge Wedding with you!

Last month, one of my very best friends {since I was about five years old} got Married!!!

I was given the distinct honor of being her Wedding Photographer for the occasion!
{Which makes sense, because I’ve been taking pictures of her for most of our lives anyway! 😉 }

As the Wedding Day got closer, I had mixed feelings about not being  a “guest”  in the traditional sense at her Wedding, but honestly, I wouldn’t have had it any other way!

I think that I got the VIP Best Friend’s Wedding Experience! 🙂

I got to work closely with Julie {and Jesse} during the planning stages, to help them figure out planning details, I got to spend time with Jesse & Julie alone, shooting their Engagement Portrait Session in Charlotte {seen HERE}, I still got to participate in all of the fun Wedding Festivities leading up to the Big Day {including the Bridal Showers and Bachelorette Weekend}, I got the first sneak peak of how ABSOLUTELY PERFECT Julie looked in her Wedding gown when I shot her Bridal Portraits {seen HERE} & I got to spend time alone with Julie & her sweet mama {Dawn} that day {which we hadn’t done in years!}, I got to hold Julie’s hand on her Wedding Day & I got behind the scenes access to Julie & Jesse on their Best Day! I got to sit down & eat with old High School/College Friends that I hadn’t seen in years, I got to laugh & Dance & at the end of the night, my Best Friend even threw me her Bouquet! 🙂

{I needed it} 😉

Julie & Jesse got Married on October 17th, 2015 at Eseeola Lodge in Linville, North Carolina!

It was the first REALLY cold, windy day of the Fall Season, but a Beautiful and Joyous Occasion despite the chilly temps!

Jesse & Julie’s friends & family traveled from far & wide to Celebrate with them on their Wedding Day!

It was truly a Wonderful Day for Everyone!

Enjoy…

This is the Speeding Ticket Jesse got on his Wedding Day… which is funny because Jesse is traditionally a notoriously slow driver…

Guess he couldn’t wait to Marry his Best Friend! 🙂
