It honestly seems like I’ve got a direct line to the weather controller these days!

This makes the third Wedding this season where torrential down pours, ominous dark clouds, and threatening forecasts dominated the day but

come ceremony time: the rain stops, the clouds part and we have perfect light for the ceremony, portraits & festivities! 🙂 {Thanks Mom & Pop!}

Rebecca & Kelly met on OK Cupid {it actually works, folks!!!} 😉

On their first date, they ate pizza & washed a dog in a lake — {which I hear is a real funny story!}

This super sweet, friendly & easy going couple was Married at the 1927 Lake Lure Inn & Spa last Saturday, May 19th, 2018!

Lake Lure is just about 45 minutes South East of Asheville & is a popular Mountain/Lake/Historic Destination Wedding Venue !

{Happy 1 Week, Lovers!}

My favorite part about this Wedding was hanging with Rebecca & her hilarious Bridesmaids — which really made the day so much fun!!!

I also loved Rebecca’s attention to all the little details, I loved the food {catered by the Inn} & the late 90’s – early 2000’s JAMS during their reception!

Enjoy!

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!

Today, I had the distinct honor of photographing Julie’s Wedding Day!

It was an honor because Julie has been one of my very best friends since I was a little girl! 🙂

Julie & Jesse said I DO today at Eseeola Lodge in Linville, NC!

Julie, her mother & I got together a little less than a month ago to shoot her Bridal Portrait Session here in Asheville!

We had originally planned to shoot over in Linville but the weather that day in Linville left a lot to be desired! 😉

So, we ended up shooting her Bridal Session at the NC Arboretum and along the Blue Ridge Parkway {we literally out ran the rain}!

I love it when I don’t have to wait too long to share such GORGEOUS images!

Julie – You looked PERFECT!

Congratulations, I am so incredibly happy for both of you!

Have a Fantastic time in Aruba!

I’m so Excited to Finally Share Chris & Laura’s Beautiful Destination Wedding with you!

Chris & Laura are both from Georgia & last month they said I DO at Addison Farms Vineyard which is located in North West Buncombe County, just 20 minutes outside of Asheville proper!

It was my first time shooting at Addison Farms Vineyard and it was a really lovely venue!

Laura & Chris had the most Romantic Wedding Ceremony set amongst the Vineyard’s Grape Vines with the Beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains as the Backdrop!

Enjoy!

Katelan wanted a little bit of nature but also wanted to shoot in Downtown Asheville because she & Andre got Married today at On Broadway  in Downtown Asheville!

I love when I don’t have to wait very long to share lovely Bridal Portraits!

& Katelan was a STUNNER! 🙂

Enjoy!

Drew & Brittany are the SWEETEST!!! 🙂

They’re originally from the Florence/Myrtle Beach area and recently bought a home & settled down in Asheville as they’re both Nurses at Mission Hospital! 🙂

Brittany & Drew really did the small, intimate, family Destination Wedding well!

My FAVORITE part was all the LOCAL Details about their Wedding that they incorporated into their day because they wanted to share some local flavor with their guests!

Catering by 12 Bones BBQ

Local Craft Brews from Pisgah Brewing & Asheville Brewing Co.

and

Cake/Cupcakes from Short Street Bakery

They were Married on August 8th at Laughing Waters Retreat Center in the Hickory Nut Forest {just outside of Asheville}, which was a PERFECT reflection of their vibe as a couple because  they LOVE all things outdoors!

It was a really laid back, cozy and lovely Wedding Day for the two of them & their friends & family, many of whom traveled from around the South East to attend!

Enjoy!

About REFERRALS: Drew & Brittany were referred to me by someone from my hometown, who I went to school with!

Brittany currently works with Sarah at the Hospital & mentioned that she still needed a Wedding Photographer during a shift at work one day & was referred to me that way!

As a result, I will be gifting a COMPLIMENTARY Child and/or Family Portrait Session to Sarah as a Thank You for the referral! 🙂

Sarah – Please, get in touch when you’re ready!

Thanks a Million!

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! 🙂

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! 🙂

These guys met on Craigslist!

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

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! 🙂

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!
