I judge a venue usually by their Bridal Suit and MANNNNNNN, oh Man, I think Inn at Tranquility Farm takes top prize in this category!

Not only does this venue boast Gorgeous Mountain Views, it also has the most beautiful interior of the main house/bridal suit! 🙂

I absolutely love shooting there and really hope to do it more often!

You know how there’s always that ONE weekend in October where it turns off frigid cold (after having been in the 60’s for the entire month)

That turned out to be Chelsea & Tyler’s weekend this year!

It poured rain for two days prior to their Wedding (which was the catalyst for our foliage peak — the following weekend) and it was frigid cold — like 30 degrees!

They were Married at Inn at Tranquility Farm on October 27. 2018!

Typically, the Inn would have the amazing Mountain Views and I know Chelsea & Tyler were hoping for those but the rain (which thankfully, stopped long enough for a Wedding) left us with overcast skies, heavy cloud cover and a fair amount of fog that day!

Also, the last weekend in October is usually a really good bet for brilliant fall color but our peak leaf weekend this year was late & it didn’t happen until the following weekend!

Never the less, Chelsea & Tyler had a Beautiful Wedding & a super fun party with all of their friends and family!

My favorite things about this Wedding:

Tyler was SO sweet & thoughtful! He gave Chelsea Wedding Gifts EVERY HOUR leading up to their Ceremony!

I loved how beautiful the Inn’s Bridal Suit is/the possibilities it provided for some really nice pre-wedding coverage of Chelsea’s activities!

I loved the catering! HOLY COW, was that dinner phenomenal!

I love how LIT their Reception was! They had SO MUCH FUN dancing with their guests!

I also really loved my 2nd shooter for the day, Stephanie! <3

Many Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Slaughter!

Enjoy!

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!

I caught a break in shooting Weddings in July & spent all of July catching up on my mile high editing backlog!

I edited four Weddings and about ten portrait sessions!  {toot, toot!} 😉

Then, last weekend, the never-ending backlog of editing filled right back up

{with 3 events over this past weekend!} HA!

But, when it’s a Gorgeous Couple, a Beautiful Venue/Details, a Fun Wedding & the Couple is this Funny/Sweet, I don’t mind in the least! 🙂

It’s taken me almost whole week to prepare this Blog post because I’m so excited about sharing it!!!

{and because “boss baby” is in the heat of the dreaded 18 month sleep regression – I’ve seriously only slept like 12hrs all week…. it’s rough. #MomTrepreneur #amiright }

On the night they met, Katie & Michael stayed up talking until the sun came up & very soon after, Michael told Katie that he was going to Marry her someday!

Fast forward to August 4, 2018 — the pair said I DO right here in Asheville at the Country Club of Asheville {which is Phenomenal btw}!

These guys are very well loved & it’s so obvious why!!!

Their Wedding was impressive, considering it was a Destination Wedding, they had a huge Bridal Party & I believe ALL of their guests traveled in from various parts around the country!

What a good time!!!

Enjoy!

 

 

And they Lived Happily Ever After! xo

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!
