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!

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! 🙂

Mitch & Megan are seriously the coolest!

They were Married on 4.8.17 in South Florida when they said I DO in an intimate backyard ceremony & reception with their closest family & friends!

They LOVE Asheville and the Mountains of WNC and wanted to Honeymoon here & they thought they’d shoot a Newlywed Portrait Session on the Blue Ridge Parkway while they were at it!

We had the BEST time together!

{we’re even gonna meet up for a beer this weekend!}

I just pulled a few random images from our evening together…

Enjoy!

This Wedding was Absolutely one of my Favorite Weddings of the Season!

Primarily because Michael & Hallie were so Incredibly Sweet!!!

The day was a SUPER Hot July Day & the Summer Heat was ‘kind’ enough to deliver us some Rain after their Ceremony…

*Which is a good omen for Michael & Hallie as it promises fertility for their Marriage!*

{I was in my 1st trimester of pregnancy at the time and looking back, I don’t know how in the world I made it through a 10hr Wedding Day!!!}

I’m certain that the only reasons I made it through were: The arctic AC in the church, my amazing 2nd shooter that day {Tessa Blackstone}, Michael & Hallie & their Families being the Absolute SWEETEST people EVER, the hour long meal time/rest break built into their Reception & the Delicious Food provided by Rumbling Bald’s Catering Staff! 😉

Michael & Hallie were High School Sweet Hearts…

They both have Big Catholic Families, they met at Church, their Families have been Friends years, they went to the same College to be together & this past Summer, they Said I DO to a lifetime together!!!

Hallie is a Pediatric Nurse at the Children’s Hospital and Michael is currently finishing up Law School!

These guys are the cutest, sweetest couple ever! 🙂

Their Wedding was totally Beautiful {I love Catholic Weddings} & they had one heck of a Party afterward!

Enjoy!

Oh guys!

This year has been a complete and total WHIRLWIND!

I used to be SO Diligent about Blogging the Beautiful things I’ve been working on…

In fact, I really enjoy putting together the layouts and writing the blog & sharing the work with you all!

This year, kinda got away from me though…

I blogged my first two Weddings of the season and then things got REALLY hectic with work, I took a two week hiking trip and came home and found out I was having a BABY!

 I spent the next 3 months sleeping whenever I wasn’t shooting or editing!

The Fall Season was totally Insane with 1-2 Weddings every single weekend and 3-5 Portrait Sessions every week in addition to keeping up with my Editing workload & the Business Administration side of things {emails, handling inquiry requests, bookings,  processing orders, fulfilling orders, bookkeeping, publishing, social media, etc.}

I have JUST now caught up all of my editing for the year and FINALLY have a chance to breath!

So, as promised, it’s BLOG -A- PALOOZA time!!!

Over the next few weeks, I’ll be blogging many of the beautiful Engagements, Bridal Sessions & Weddings that I’ve Photographed over the last 8 months!

First up is Joy & David’s Beautiful, Spring, Destination Wedding in Downtown Asheville, NC at The Capital Club!!!

If you can believe it, Joy & David knew each other in college!!!

{They’re both accountants!} 😉

They were friends back then but both fell in love & married other people, had families & experienced life without each other for many years until…

Life or Fate, in the funny way that it does, brought them back together decades later!

David & Joy finally found each other in a second chance at Love!

I just love a good Fated Love Story, don’t you!?

Joy & David are the Sweetest people ever & I was SO lucky to have met them & to have been a tiny part of their day!

They said I do in front of their Parents, their Children, their Friends & Co-Workers & I’ll tell ya, Corner Kitchen Catering & Party Envy Event Planning Did a Phenomenal Job {AS USUAL!} 🙂

David & Joy were Married on May 14th, 2016 at in an intimate Destination Wedding at The Capital Club in Beautiful, Downtown Asheville, NC!

Enjoy!

Mr. & Mrs. Perry were my first Wedding of what will be a VERY busy Wedding Season!!!

Matt & Ashley were Married on March 18, 2016 at The 1927 Lake Lure Inn & Spa in Lake Lure, NC

{just about an hour outside of Asheville}

They first met in college while both were attending UNC Greensboro!

Although they shared many mutual friends, the two never connected romantically until Facebook brought them together a couple years after they had graduated and moved on to other things!

Matt & Ashley are the Sweetest Couple….

Fond of making each other smile, they’re always laughing! It’s so easy to see that they REALLY love each other!

Ashley & Matt planned a Wine themed,  intimate affair for their closest friends and family at the Beautiful & Historic 1927 Lake Lure Inn and Spa last month & these guys had a GREAT time! 😉

Enjoy!

If you’re wondering where I’ve been & what I’ve been up to this summer & why haven’t I been working…

After Andrew & Abbie’s Wilmington Destination Wedding in early June, I left the States & spent a month & a half in Ireland where I did some consulting work for a pair of Wedding Photographers from Co. Galway, Ireland & I photographed THREE Weddings in Ireland while I was at it! 🙂

While I was in Ireland, I was still taking care of business remotely!

I edited Andrew & Abbie’s Wedding Photos, answered emails, corresponded with clients & booked Fall, Winter & Spring 2016 Weddings!!!

So, I WAS working, just not in Asheville! 😉

I LOVED every, single second of my time in Ireland & one of my fondest memories was my very first Irish Wedding!

Tommy & Michelle were Married on June 12th, 2015

{three days after I landed in Ireland}!

It was SO neat to experience Irish marriage traditions, they’re similar to American traditions but there are some big differences to note:

***

While many American’s choose to tie the knot in venue’s beyond a church {mountain tops, barns, gardens, country clubs, resorts & other lavish venues created specifically for Weddings}

1. The Irish typically get Married in Churches or Cathedrals.

While many American Wedding Ceremonies are finished in 20 minutes {tops}

2. The Irish take part in a Wedding Day {full} Mass where Ceremonies typically last about an hour, give or take!

Because of this, one gets the sense that the commitment is more serious somehow…

While American Wedding guests tend to dress a little more casual-dressy for Weddings

3. The Irish really go ALL OUT!!! It’s like a Fashion Show! 😉

{3-4 piece suits, beautiful dresses with the perfect hat & bag to match & sky high heels!}

 American’s throw big parties after the Ceremony to Celebrate – called ‘Receptions’

4. The Irish throw BIG PARTIES after the Ceremony to Celebrate – called ‘Afters’

While American Weddings are about the Couple & Celebrating the union with family & friends

5. The Irish make Wedding Day more centered around Family & the joining of Families…

it’s difficult to explain, it somehow just {feels} more family centered.

More about that on the next post {Allen & Michelle’s Tuam, Ireland Wedding, later this week!} 🙂

For now, enjoy a few images from Tommy & Michelle’s Big Day!

I absolutely ADORE Abbie & Andrew Johnson!

I met them more than a year ago, when I photographed Abbie’s Maid of Honor {Jennifer’s} Wedding in Asheville!

A couple days later, Abbie contacted me to shoot HER Wedding which would be in Wilmington, NC!

Needless to say, I was thrilled! 🙂

Over the last year, I’ve gotten to know Abbie & Andrew since shooting their Engagement Portrait Session last spring, Abbie’s Bridal Portrait Session this spring & various corespondence throughout the year!

I have to say, they are one of the sweetest couples I’ve had the pleasure of working with!

They’re both such kind, easy going, fun people & I’ve grown really fond of them…

ESPECIALLY since sharing in their Destination Wedding Weekend with them last week!

What an incredibly Beautiful day!

I’m say’n… they thought of EVERY detail!!!!

The day couldn’t have possibly been more perfect…

It was just a visual feast, all day long & I’m so in love with these photographs from such a fun day! 🙂

St. Thomas preservation Hall in Downtown Wilmington is probably one of my favorite venues I’ve ever photographed, the LIGHT in that room!!!

Holy Jeeeeez was it BEAUTIFUL!

And the team at Port City Event Planners REALLY out did themselves with the Floral, Planning, Arrangement, & Coordination of Andrew & Abbie’s Big Day!!!

It was just PERFECT!

Enough Words… Enjoy!
