Meredith & Zach hosted the most Gorgeous Spring Wedding earlier this month in downtown Asheville at the Basilica St. Lawrence with their reception following at The Farm – A Gathering Place out in Candler!

Although Meredith & Zach are local (in Asheville) and we had more than a few phone calls, for one reason or another, we didn’t get the opportunity to meet before their Wedding Day! Which is my loss because these two are completely precious human beings!!! 🙂 As individuals, they’re both SOOOO stinking sweet but together, their Love is just — beyond! I’ll tell you one thing, Meredith is going to have a LIFETIME of laughter with that husband of hers (he’s a mess in the best, most hysterical way possible!) And I literally couldn’t be happier for them!

Things I loved about this Wedding:

They chose the Hyatt Place in downtown Asheville for their Pre-Ceremony / Getting ready portion of the day and the Hyatt Place’s Bridal Suit is the prettiest in town, in my humble opinion! 🙂

Meredith & her Bridesmaids Hair & Makeup was Flawless, thanks to my pal, Brittney and the team over at Flawless Airbrush Makeup & Hair!

Zach & Meredith did a little departure from the “norm” (but is actually very common in other parts of the country & Europe actually) — they had a 2hr break between the Ceremony and Reception! Which I think this is fun for the guests, takes the pressure off of everyone (including your photographer/photography timeline — we had plenty of un-rushed time for photos, it was amazing!) and just makes for a super laid back, fun kind of day! Give it some thought! 😉

Their reception was at The Farm – A Gathering Place which is one of my FAVORITE Venues because of their careful & thoughtful attention to every tiny detail! They REALLY know how to do Weddings right — the incredibly thoughtful attention to detail that Bethany and her team put in for their couples, their families, friends and the vendors — it’s literally second to none! <3
