The 2018 Wedding Season is certainly off to a Fantastic start!

Demi & Jake were Married on Cinco De Mayo at The 1927 Lake Lure Inn & Spa!

They are the Cutest, Sweetest, Most Fun Couple!

Showing up to shoot their Wedding Day was like re-uniting with old friends!

If you’re on the fence about an Engagement Session – here’s why you should take advantage of the Complimentary Engagement Session included in your Wedding Collection!

By choosing to shoot an Engagement Session with me – we got the chance to actually know each other before their Wedding!

We shot their Engagement Session at Biltmore last Fall & spent a couple hours laughing together while doing it!

Then, I shot Demi’s Bridal Portrait Session at Biltmore last month & so, when I saw them on their Wedding Day, it was like re-uniting with old friends!

Because we got to know each other, I adore them & was genuinely excited about shooting their Wedding!

Thus, the beautiful result!

Enjoy!

It’s the FIRST WEDDING OF THE 2018 SEASON!!!!

{and I am GOING to do better about Blogging this year!} 😉

Many, Many Congratulations to Hailey & Nick, who were Married this past weekend in a Gorgeous, Mountain View Ceremony at a Private Cabin just outside of Asheville proper!

Nick & Hailey live in Tampa but Love Asheville & our Beautiful Mountains so they planned their Destination Wedding to treat their closest friends & family to a Wedding Weekend at a Lovely Mountain Retreat in Saluda!

It’s been a difficult year for me & the last couple weeks have been particularly painful with the death of both my father and my mother within a two week span.

My mother passed away last Tuesday & her funeral was scheduled for Sunday….

Getting out of Bed, Getting Dressed, Driving, Thinking, Working, Talking & especially Smiling were just about the last things I wanted to do on Saturday.

When you’re a Wedding Photographer, you don’t get to call in or reschedule!

Someone’s Wedding Day only happens once & there are no do-overs!

So – I psyched myself up and I went to shoot this Wedding & I did it in HONOR of my Mother!

 I think I would’ve made her very proud with this one!

Enjoy!

Tyler & Kara are creeping up on their 1st Anniversary!

They were Married last June in a Church Wedding in Candler {which is just outside of Asheville proper!}  with their Reception following at Roberson Ranch, also in Candler!

You might be asking yourself: “why is she just now blogging this wedding!?”

That’s a fantastic question and the short answer is: “Girrrrl, I had a baby last year {4 months before this Wedding}, I was doing good just to shoot, edit and deliver all (25) of my 2017 Weddings!”

My ‘slow season’ during the last couple months has afforded me the opportunity to update my website {go check out the changes here!!!} and BLOG!!!

The sweetest, most special thing about this Wedding & the thing that still sticks with me to this day – was Kara’s gift to Tyler.

Long before she even met Tyler, Kara purchased a journal and began writing to him & journaling “prayers for her future husband”….

She continued journaling her prayers for him when they met, as they dated & after they were Engaged to be Married.

I was in tears watching Tyler open this incredibly thoughtful, special gift. {Tyler was (obviously) crying — as were the videographers}….

It was a truly moving moment!

Enjoy!

 

Tyler & Kara – I miss you guys & really hope that you’re doing well & enjoying life as Newlyweds in this first year of Marriage!

Thank You so much for asking me to help you to document this moment in your lives! XO -Brit

“I love you.

For all that you are.

For all that you have been.

For all that you have yet to be.”

We shot Amanda & Colton’s Mountain Engagement Session last summer in Asheville!

I LOVED this Engagement Session…

I loved the flowers and the warm light & the playful affection between them!

They’ll be saying I’DO this June at Cabin Among the Oaks in Canton, NC & we can’t wait for their Wedding!

Jon & Beth had SO MUCH to Celebrate on this day!

Jon had just finished Med School & their relationship, which began as study buddies in undergrad

was finally punctuated with an I’DO and sealed with a Kiss on this warm {putting it politely}, sunny, June day in Lake Norman, NC at Peninsula Yacht Club!

Jon & Beth became Dr. & Mrs. Ridner and they threw quite the party to Celebrate the Occassion!!!

During the winter, I’m fielding inquires and booking Weddings for the 2018 season and as I blog this one, all I can think is: I sure hope I get to shoot another Wedding like this one!

MAN, What a Good Time! 😉

I don’t always call out vendors by name in these posts but I feel compelled call out their DJ because: HE WAS THE BEST WEDDING DJ I’VE EVER WORKED WITH!!!

Couples, hear me when I say: Levar Gladden of Split Second Sound and Entertainment is PHENOMENAL & I’m sorry it took me this long to blog this Wedding but I’m telling you now!

If you’re hiring a DJ, do yourself a favor and book this guy!

He kept their party hopping like nothing I’ve ever seen {he even had a hype man on deck which was hilarious so many times throughout the night!} 😉

In fact, I couldn’t share my absolute favorite reception photo of 2017 to protect the privacy of guests but trust me when I say: they. had. a. great. time!!!

Check out the photo of Jon high fiving’ Levar during the reception!

Jon & Beth,

Thank You so much for asking me to help you document this very special occasion!

I hope you guys are doing well & loving life as newlyweds!

Enjoy this look back!

XO

I have been SO Excited to share this GORGEOUS Wedding with you!!!

Carter & Adam received their Gallery in mid July and it’s taken me this long to Blog their Beautiful Wedding because Work & Life has been SO hectic lately!

Carter & Adam were Married on June 10th, 2017 in Lake Norman / Mt. Ulla {which is about an hour outside of Charlotte, NC}

They said I DO on the front steps of Adam’s Mother’s Lovely, Antebellum Farm House with their Reception at a nearby Vineyard!

Carter & Adam are not only one of the most attractive couples ever, they also happen to be really, really sweet people!

I enjoyed getting to know them during their engagement year & helping them to document their Wedding Day…

I’ll just leave these photographs here & let them speak for themselves! 😉

Enjoy!

Kimi & Tanner are THE SWEETEST people/couple & their love story is so inspiring!

These two met while attending college at UNC Wilmington.

Tanner’s Best Man’s speech told of many nights spent drinking beers on a back porch, plotting ways Tanner could get the girl! 😉

Tanner finally got the girl & they fell in love & Baby Knox made 3!

Their love story, while not ‘traditional’ in it’s sequence of events / of how society tells us it should be done – personally INSPIRED me!

Kimi & Tanner’s Love gave me hope that I could have a Beautiful Wedding like theirs one day {hopefully sooner rather than later}, with my son in attendance!

I loved every moment with Baby Knox: from a super sweet moment with his mommy before the Wedding, to his stealing the show during the ceremony & reception…

In my opinion, it’s really special to have your child attend your Wedding!

Enjoy!

VENDOR LOVE:

Kimi & Tanner were Married in Beautiful Downtown Asheville

My new FAVORITE Venue: Century Room on the Park {Pack’s Tavern} – I judge a venue on it’s Bridal Suit and that light in there is EVERYTHING!!! 🙂

In the ceremony/reception space – the wood, exposed beams, gorgeous light…. it was magic! Check it out!!!

Kimi has SUCH good taste!

I LOVED her color/texture choices for all of the decor!!!

The BEAUTIFUL Floral Arrangements were from: Shady Grove Florist

You can see their Guests had a BLAST dancing to tunes spun by DJ:  Eric Everett with Asheville Wedding Entertainment

Kirsten & Wyatt’s Wedding at The Venue in Downtown Asheville last month was one of the most beautiful, truly moving Weddings that I have had the pleasure of photographing!

You could literally FEEL the Love radiating through the room.

It was Infectious.  It was Inspiring.

Everyone Wishes for that kind of Love & Kirsten & Wyatt’s Wedding Inspired Hope.

The Hope that – that kind of Love Exists and the Hope that you’ll find it or renew it!

Everyone in the room Loved this couple SO MUCH and it is no mystery to me about why…

Kirsten & Wyatt are two of the most humble, kindest, most thoughtful, generous and sweet people!

Their Family & Friends talked about these qualities in them all day/night long!

Their Speeches talked about how meant for each other they were and I couldn’t agree more!

I am so happy for you guys & am so honored to have been asked to help you document this beautiful day in your lives!

Best Wishes for a Long & Happy Life Together!

Wedding Season is in full swing!

Until this past weekend, I haven’t had a Saturday off in three months & am shooting 3-4 portrait sessions per week!

Which is why when I planned to share Kara’s Bridal Portrait Session {last} Monday & I’m just getting it up {this} Monday!

Which is fine because I believe Mr. & Mrs. Cummings just got back from their Honeymoon! 😉

We shot Kara’s Bridal Portrait Session at Biltmore Estate about a month and a half ago and I swear, the hardest part is waiting to share them!

Kara was such an Elegant, Beautiful Bride!

Enjoy!

Kara wanted to shoot this one for a gift for her parents! 🙂
