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

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!)

It’s official, I have legitimately LOVED every couple who’s ever asked me to shoot their Catholic Wedding!

Alex & Galen were no exception! I ADORE these two!

You know how they say: “Her smile light up the room”

(they’re talking about Alex)

& this woman is seriously just as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside – no kidding!

Lastly (I swear this is the end of my love letter to the bride!): I totally want to be Best Friends with a Bride who does the “Stanky Leg” and the “Berny” in her Bridal Party Portraits!

Alex & Galen are a precious couple & they were SO incredibly sweet on their Wedding Day!

Be sure to check out the video – which includes their ultra sexy 1st dance song (fair warning: I couldn’t get this song out of my head for like two weeks after)!

Alex & Galen were Married at St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church & hosted their Reception at Laurel Ridge Country Club {just down the street} on September 29th, 2018!

(I wanted/intended to Blog this gorgeous wedding the following week but…. October.)

Enjoy!

OMG! Ya’ll!

It’s starting.

{and by “it” I mean the insanity that is the Wedding/Family Portrait Photography Industry in Western North Carolina in the Fall!}

I meant to Blog this Wedding last week buttttttt… EMAILS. and life. and toddler exhaustion. etc. etc. 😉

Magen & Josh are the COOLEST.

You wanna know how I know!?

Their Wedding was ALLLLL their own!!!

 – They went on their African Safari Honeymoon BEFORE the Wedding!!!

– When Magen booked this Waterfall Wedding with me, she told me that their Priorities were the Honeymoon & Photo/Video and then everything else… in that order.

#YouGoGirl #MyKindaLady #WomanAfterMyPhotogHeart

I could literally keep going on the hashtags.

Enjoy!

 

PS: My girl, Erin @ Plain with Sprinkles Events killed it (per usual) on the Day of Coordination (making sure everything ran smoothly & all the moving parts happen!)

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!

Tyler & Kara are creeping up on their 1st Anniversary!

They were Married last June in a Church Wedding in Candler {which is just outside of Asheville proper!}  with their Reception following at Roberson Ranch, also in Candler!

You might be asking yourself: “why is she just now blogging this wedding!?”

That’s a fantastic question and the short answer is: “Girrrrl, I had a baby last year {4 months before this Wedding}, I was doing good just to shoot, edit and deliver all (25) of my 2017 Weddings!”

My ‘slow season’ during the last couple months has afforded me the opportunity to update my website {go check out the changes here!!!} and BLOG!!!

The sweetest, most special thing about this Wedding & the thing that still sticks with me to this day – was Kara’s gift to Tyler.

Long before she even met Tyler, Kara purchased a journal and began writing to him & journaling “prayers for her future husband”….

She continued journaling her prayers for him when they met, as they dated & after they were Engaged to be Married.

I was in tears watching Tyler open this incredibly thoughtful, special gift. {Tyler was (obviously) crying — as were the videographers}….

It was a truly moving moment!

Enjoy!

 

Tyler & Kara – I miss you guys & really hope that you’re doing well & enjoying life as Newlyweds in this first year of Marriage!

Thank You so much for asking me to help you to document this moment in your lives! XO -Brit

We shot Tyler & Kara’s Engagement Session at Biltmore Estate well over a year ago!

I never got the chance to blog this session because right after it,  I went on a trip & when I came home, we found out we were having a baby & life got really hectic!

That’s okay, because today is the perfect day to share their sweet session because today Tyler & Kara are GETTING MARRIED!!!!

They’ll say I Do this afternoon at Pole Creek Baptist Church with their Reception to follow at Roberson Ranch in Candler, NC which is just outside of Asheville proper!

Summer & Darian were introduced by Summer’s Dad!

{now THAT is a seal of approval!} 😉

They bonded over their mutual love of Jeeps!

In fact, their first date was four wheeling in the snow I believe!?

Summer & Darian are a super sweet couple!

They were Married on May 7, 2017 at Jeter Mountain Farm {which is totally lovely venue by the way} in Hendersonville, NC!

The photos below are just a few of my favorite moments from their big day!

Enjoy!

I LOVED Everything about this Wedding!

First off, Nick & Alex are the absolute sweetest, most genuine, laid back, fun couple ever! 😉

That was immediately apparent to me when Alex’s first message said that she and Nick would be getting married at Highland Brewing Company in Asheville, NC!

Nick & Alex met at a Fraternity Party back in 2010!

They became Best Friends that year & each dated other people for a very long time…

On St. Patrick’s Day 2013, they had their first kiss and that was IT for them!

They’ve been together ever since & isn’t it adorable that they got married on the day after St. Patrick’s Day 2017!?

I Loved every single detail about this Wedding;

Alex is a Knock Out & that Romantic BHLDN Dress & that Floral Crown though!

I loved that they chose to get Married at a Brewery, I loved that Plain with Sprinkles totally knocked the planning, decor & coordination out of the park!

I loved the Floral Decor & Catering from SMASH Events – I mean: Mini Tacos and  a Mac & Cheese Bar!? WHAT!?!?!

I loved all of the tiny, personal little details and I really loved how HAPPY everyone was! 🙂
