Marinn & Dave had the most lovely, intimate spring wedding at Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden last month!

Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden is located in Belmont, NC which is just about 20 minutes outside of Charlotte! It has the most Gorgeous Ceremony options, an open air outdoor reception space, beautiful, manicured gardens and even an orchid/succulent greenhouse!

I had been hoping to shoot at Daniel Stowe for quite some time & was absolutely thrilled when Marinn asked me to photograph their Wedding!

Danny & Lisa hosted the most Beautiful March 2019 Wedding at Hidden River Events in Swannanoa, NC!

I’ve known Lisa for several years and have photographed her & her family on a few different occasions during that time! I adore Lisa! She is the most beautiful soul, inside & out! I also really love shooting at Hidden River (which is located in Swannanoa, NC — just outside Asheville city limits, near Warren Wilson College!) So, when Lisa asked me to shoot her Wedding (over a year ago), the answer was a resounding YES! 🙂

I’ve really gotten to know Lisa fairly well over the years and even more so in this last year! We took a little road trip to Charleston in January to shoot her Bridal Portrait Session, you can see that HERE!

I wanted to write something about how genuinely HAPPY both Lisa & Danny were on this day! I’ve known Lisa for a while and I’ve never witnessed her this way, ever…. Something about their Joyful Ease on this day, both of them — it stuck with me. It was really special to witness! <3

Things I Loved about this Wedding:

Lisa (duh), her Gorgeous, Romantic, Flowy Wedding Gown, Sparkly Keds!, the Floral (provided by Hidden River), The Flower Girl & Ring Barer were SOOOOO stinking Cute! The way Lisa cried when she hugged her grandma before the ceremony, Their Bridal Party was awesome, they were all so friendly & relatable — I really enjoyed working with them! Their Families were SOOOOOO Sweet, they had a BYOC (bring your own CAKE) potluck situation at their reception (and I legit devoured the best chocolate cake I think I’ve ever had (thanks somebody’s nana, because I KNOW somebody nana made that cake! LOL), that weird cowboy line dance was fascinating! All those ECU girls at the Wedding (informing me that: “this was the fun table” before they even know that I’m a Pirate too! ;)) Those Sunset photos! <3

Enjoy!
