Abbie & Joel’s Wedding was one of my favorites this season!

I think a lot of that favoritism comes from the fact that we had already spent an afternoon hiking together (to shoot their Engagement Session ) over the summer!

Abbie is a total bad ass!

Wanna know how I know?

She hiked Black Balsam in heels. All the way to the top. And back down again. 🙂

Abbie & Joel are kind, friendly, easy going and incredibly gracious!

Other reasons this Wedding was one of my faves:

It was a Gorgeous October Day

I love Lake Lure Inn & Spa Weddings!

They chose to get Married in the Garden at the Inn (which was a unique choice!)

I had the greatest 2nd Shooter that day {I really enjoyed working with Daniella!}

I LOVE a good cry (re: Joel — all day!) <3

It was truly my pleasure getting to know them & helping them to tell their story on their Wedding Day, this past October at the Beautiful 1927 Lake Lure Inn & Spa which is about 45 minutes outside of Asheville!

Enjoy this quick look at their day (& a few of their Engagement Photos to start!)

Amanda & Derek were married at Peaceful Hollow on October 13th, 2018!

Unlike most of my clients, Amanda & Derek are local to Asheville!

They chose Peaceful Hollow because it’s beautiful, intimate and sits adjacent to the Blue Ridge Parkway just a few minutes drive from Downtown Asheville!

They were really hoping for some for early fall color but we had a late foliage change this year!

What they got instead was a Warm, partly Sunny, Perfect Autumn Day!

They said I Do in an intimate ceremony with their Families & close friends in attendance!

It was my first time shooting at Peaceful Hollow and — it’s just DARLING!

If you’re planning a smaller, more intimate outdoor/(meticulously manicured) backyard Wedding, wanna stay close to downtown Asheville, yet just a stone’s throw from the Blue Ridge Parkway and work with two of the nicest folks you’ll meet, give Peaceful Hollow a look!

Get in touch with Ginny here: Ginny Stewart Pierson Peacefulhollowvenue@gmail.com

Many Congratulations Derek & Amanda!

May you enjoy a long & happy Marriage!

XO

Enjoy!

 

 

 

 

 

… And they lived Happily, Ever, After!

Winslow & Amanda are the SWEETEST!

They’re Clemson Alumni — so it should come as no surprise to anyone that they had the most fun party ever! 🙂

This was one of my favorite Weddings of the year for the following reasons:

  1. Winslow & Amanda are both incredibly kind and they’re totally adorable!
  2. I was SO HAPPY to get to shoot at Hidden River Events again! It had been a while! <3 (I am also thrilled to get to return again this March)
  3. I feel like I should alert any Engaged Bride / Planning her Wedding (who’s reading this): Hidden River currently has a promo advertised on their site for a FREE Honeymoon to Hawaii when you book your Wedding prior to January 15th! I don’t know any details, I just saw it on their site when I linked to them!                You’re Welcome, Girl! 🙂 
  4. Hidden River is Gorgeous (I especially loved all of the beautiful improvements they’ve made since the last time I was there!)                                                                                                                             I missed you & I really wanna come back & shoot there all the time! (Jeanne — I would love to be added to your preferred vendors list so I can come back more often!!?!) #Puhhhleasssse <3
  5. Winslow & Amanda’s Wedding was SO pretty, I loved all of the details & I especially loved that it was so uniquely (them)!
  6. They legit had the most fun party ever & it made documenting it in a photojournalistic way — a lot of fun! 🙂
  7. I love when people are all buttoned up and proper when they arrive for the ceremony and just a few short hours later, they’re pouring sweat and dancing like their life depends on it!                (I’m talking-to you blue shirt! ;)) — I just needed a # 7 because I’m weird.

Many Congratulations to Mr. & Mrs. Mohr!!!

Enjoy!
