Elizabeth & Thomas were Married last weekend at Montreat College in Black Mountain, NC

which is just about 20 minutes outside of Asheville proper!

Like Elizabeth, Montreat has always had a special place in my heart because my family is deeply & lovingly rooted with the college as well!

The thing that struck me most about Elizabeth & Thomas was how their Faith truly seems to be the corner stone of their Relationship, which I believe will serve them well in the years to come! <3

This was immediately evident to me in the vows that they privately shared with each other at their First Look {which happened in the Gazebo on Lake Susan — where Thomas proposed!}

Their Wedding was a Fun, Celebration of their Love & Union! 🙂

Their Reception was also really great – The Monte Vista Hotel is an excellent space for a small’ish {like 50-75’ish} Wedding Reception!

The staff at the Monte Vista are friendly, kind, helpful and accommodating & the catering provided by the hotel was excellent as well! 🙂

I also feel compelled to give a special shout out to their awesome DJ – who not only played guitar along with Elizabeth’s Uncle in a special toast for them but he also busted out a Djembe Drum during their Reception to accentuate the beat of some of their high energy dance songs – which I thought was wicked cool & really contributed something extraordinary to their party! 🙂

Enjoy!

I’ve been so excited to Blog this one!

It was my first time shooting at Cabin Among the Oaks in Canton!

{located about 30minutes outside of Asheville proper}

The Venue is GORGEOUS!

All the attention to detail…. that’s it, you know, it’s in the littlest details!

I also really LOVED this couple!

We shot their Gorgeous Engagement Session last Fall, you can see that here: ENGAGED

Amanda & Koleton are an absolutely Gorgeous Couple!

They’re SO sweet, down to earth, easy going & totally relatable!

This Wedding didn’t feel like work at all!

It was a Visual Feast!

How bout that Arbor though!?

Enjoy!

Kelly & Clint met a few years ago when they were both new to Charleston, South Carolina!

Can you believe these Gorgeous People met on Match.com!?

{I’m telling you, probably 85% of my clients report having met online!!!}

The couple got Engaged at the Master’s Golf Tournament last year & said I’DO this past weekend {June 2, 2018} at Highland Brewing Company in Asheville, NC!

Their Wedding was So Sweet & So Beautiful {thanks to Plain with Sprinkles Event Planning’s attention to detail!} 🙂

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!

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! 🙂

We shot Tyler & Kara’s Engagement Session at Biltmore Estate well over a year ago!

I never got the chance to blog this session because right after it,  I went on a trip & when I came home, we found out we were having a baby & life got really hectic!

That’s okay, because today is the perfect day to share their sweet session because today Tyler & Kara are GETTING MARRIED!!!!

They’ll say I Do this afternoon at Pole Creek Baptist Church with their Reception to follow at Roberson Ranch in Candler, NC which is just outside of Asheville proper!

Jon & Beth booked their Wedding with me in early 2016!

I met them for the first time when we shot their Engagement Session at Clemson University on the 4th of July last year!

Things I remember about this session:

1. Jon & Beth are Adorable and Beth is literally the Sweetest there ever was! 😉

2. I was newly Pregnant {like 4 weeks’ish} & was SO tired and nausiated all the time then…

3. Our first location was a dud!

4. So we ended up on Clemson Universities Campus!

5. It was SO HOT!!!

6. This random college student was sitting on those steps acting REAL weird!

Thankfully we had Dr. Jon in towe {Jon is in Med School} & if memory serves, I believe Beth is a nurse & we hooked that dude up with an ambulance and some medical care! 😉

7. I spent 4th of July on the lake watching Fireworks with Jon & Beth!

Tomorrow, Jon & Beth will FINALLY tie the knot at The Peninsula Yacht Club on Lake Norman!

Congratulations you two!

It’s been a long time coming!

I’ve been meaning to Blog this Pretty Place Chapel Wedding for quite some time!

If I thought keeping up with Blogging was hard before a Baby… I had no idea! 😉

Emily & Alex are such sweet people!

They were Married on April 8th, 2017 at Pretty Place Chapel followed by a Reception at the Connestee Club House in Brevard, NC!

How do I know Emily & Alex are gonna be together forever!?

Because something pretty crazy happened on their Wedding Day & I witnessed how strong they are as a couple first hand!

They had each other’s backs, kept each other calm, comforted each other and made the best of it!

Also, just look at the way they look at each other & the way they make each other laugh!

Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Cruz!

I hope you guys are loving life as Newlyweds!

I LOVED Everything about this Wedding!

First off, Nick & Alex are the absolute sweetest, most genuine, laid back, fun couple ever! 😉

That was immediately apparent to me when Alex’s first message said that she and Nick would be getting married at Highland Brewing Company in Asheville, NC!

Nick & Alex met at a Fraternity Party back in 2010!

They became Best Friends that year & each dated other people for a very long time…

On St. Patrick’s Day 2013, they had their first kiss and that was IT for them!

They’ve been together ever since & isn’t it adorable that they got married on the day after St. Patrick’s Day 2017!?

I Loved every single detail about this Wedding;

Alex is a Knock Out & that Romantic BHLDN Dress & that Floral Crown though!

I loved that they chose to get Married at a Brewery, I loved that Plain with Sprinkles totally knocked the planning, decor & coordination out of the park!

I loved the Floral Decor & Catering from SMASH Events – I mean: Mini Tacos and  a Mac & Cheese Bar!? WHAT!?!?!

I loved all of the tiny, personal little details and I really loved how HAPPY everyone was! 🙂
