OMG! Ya’ll!

It’s starting.

{and by “it” I mean the insanity that is the Wedding/Family Portrait Photography Industry in Western North Carolina in the Fall!}

I meant to Blog this Wedding last week buttttttt… EMAILS. and life. and toddler exhaustion. etc. etc. ūüėČ

Magen & Josh are the COOLEST.

You wanna know how I know!?

Their Wedding was ALLLLL their own!!!

 РThey went on their African Safari Honeymoon BEFORE the Wedding!!!

– When Magen booked this Waterfall Wedding with me, she told me that their Priorities were the Honeymoon & Photo/Video and then everything else… in that order.

#YouGoGirl #MyKindaLady #WomanAfterMyPhotogHeart

I could literally keep going on the hashtags.

Enjoy!

 

PS: My girl, Erin @ Plain with Sprinkles Events killed it (per usual) on the Day of Coordination (making sure everything ran smoothly & all the moving parts happen!)

Summer & Darian were introduced by Summer’s Dad!

{now THAT is a seal of approval!} ūüėČ

They bonded over their mutual love of Jeeps!

In fact, their first date was four wheeling in the snow I believe!?

Summer & Darian are a super sweet couple!

They were Married on May 7, 2017 at Jeter Mountain Farm {which is totally lovely venue by the way} in Hendersonville, NC!

The photos below are just a few of my favorite moments from their big day!

Enjoy!

This was one of my favorite Weddings of the 2016 Season!

I mean, who doesn’t Love a Themed Wedding!?

Seth & Jessica were each other’s Exception to the Rule…

They met in a bar of all places on Jessica’s Birthday in the summer of 2014, neither were looking for love & both swore it couldn’t happen in a bar! ūüėČ

Jessica was minding her own business, feeding the Juke Box when Seth approached her to find out who was playing all that Old School Rap Music!

They  pretty much became inseparable after that night!

 Seth, the outdoorsman, started taking Jessica canoeing & hiking, which she quickly fell in love with!

They¬†love to travel and have been to the Grand Canyon &¬†Aruba together¬†where they¬†went SKYDIVING on their Honeymoon! ūüôā

They’re currently training for their next big adventure; to hike Yosemite National Park in California, where¬†Jessica¬†was born and raised!

These two are Easy Going, Fun Loving, Wonderful People & their Wedding Day was truly a Reflection of their Spirit!

They planned an Outdoor, Prohibition Era Themed Wedding in early September at Yesterday’s Spaces in Leicester, NC

{which is just outside of Asheville, NC city limits!}

I ADORED Jessica’s Dress & thought her Bouquet {Courtesy of It Can Be Arranged Floral Studio} was one of the most beautiful I had ever seen!

Everyone in attendance was dressed the part {in the Spirit of the Prohibition Era}!

I LOVED it & I think you will too!

Enjoy!

I’m not sure what Dr. & Mrs. Nwofia’s first Wedding was like, but this Sweet Couple¬†Celebrated twenty-five years of Marriage¬†with a¬†Destination Biltmore Estate Wedding last month!

Jon & Lorraine said I DO in front of their Children, their Family and All of their Friends & it was truly a JOYOUS Occasion!!!

Here’s the thing about Biltmore Weddings: They’re spare no expense INCREDIBLE!

Just like a Dream, every single detail is LAVISH & the staff at Biltmore Estate¬†really pull out all the stops! ūüôā

¬†The Venue speaks for itself…

As America’s ¬†largest, privately owned home, nestled right here in Asheville, among the Beautiful Mountains of Western North Carolina…

It’s Romantic, It’s Timeless, It’s Picturesque.

{note: those are the exact words that I so often use to describe my own brand}

Needless to say, I ADORED every single moment of photographing this Gorgeous Wedding!!!

Enjoy!

Nick & Anna are SO Cute together! ūüôā

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!

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! ūüôā

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! ūüôā

These guys met on Craigslist!

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

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! ūüôā

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!

Michael & Allie are one of the Sweetest Couples that I’ve had the pleasure of working with!

It has been such an honor to have gotten to know them, in working with them to document this special time in their lives together during this past year!

We met last summer¬†while they were in town for one of Michael’s soccer tournaments!

In the fall, after I got back from San Francisco, we shot their¬†beautiful Engagement Portraits & then we¬†photographed Allie’s stunning Bridal Portrait Session in March!

 When their big day finally arrived, it felt like we had known each other, forever!!!

{Which is exactly why¬†I offer all of my couples Complimentary Engagement & Bridal Portrait Sessions prior to their Wedding Day, so that we’re all totally comfortable with each other when it counts!} ūüôā

Michael & Allie were married last weekend, April 18th at The Farm РA Gathering Place, in Candler {which is right outside of Asheville proper}!

It was a traditional April Wedding, complete with Sunshine¬†AND a little¬†Rain! ūüėČ

{They say Rain on your Wedding Day is a Good Omen, btw~}

The rain delayed the ceremony for about an hour, but the show must go on & go on it did!

This sweet couple said I DO in front of their family & friends who had traveled from far & wide to attend this Beautiful Destination Wedding!

It was my firs time shooting at The Farm, {I’ve heard so much about it over¬†the past few years} and this¬†venue certainly did not disappoint!!!

The Farm itself is absolutely gorgeous & the staff was amazingly helpful throughout the entire day!

Despite the rain, everything was just PERFECT!

& at the end of the night, Michael & Allie were SO Happy & that’s all that really matters!!! ūüôā

ENJOY!
