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!

A Gorgeous Fall Wedding at Rumbling Bald Resort in Lake Lure!

Allison & Mitchell’s Wedding was one of my Favorites from the Fall of 2018! They were Married on the peak leaf day the fall season at the Beautiful Rumbling Bald Resort in Lake Lure, NC (just about an hour through the mountains, outside of Asheville proper!) It poured & poured rain in the days preceding their Wedding Day which was the catalyst for the stunning, vibrant fall color on their big day!! All that rain made the colors of everything so rich & vibrant! That gift from Mother Nature coupled with Allison’s amazing Wedding style — What a visual feast! ENJOY!!!

In the past, when blogging, I always included SO MANY photos for a couple reasons: 1. because I love all of the images and can’t decide which to share and which to skip and 2. because I wanted to tell the (complete) story for you but — YA’LL — I’ve been struggling to be consistent about Blogging (forever) but especially since I became a mother! And now that I have a 2yr old to chase all day long, I just don’t have the time for these really in depth blog posts anymore! I want to keep blogging but I just don’t have the time to shoot, edit, deliver galleries, handle inquiries, bookings, contracts, invoices, book keeping, marketing and advertising, and on and on and on & being a MOM!!! So, Blogging going forward’s gonna change a little! I’m going to (force myself) to only share my five images from each section of the day (Details, Pre-Ceremony, Ceremony, Portraits and Reception!) I’m gonna try real hard to stick to this limitation so that hopefully I can achieve my goal of being more consistent & regularly blogging!!! xo Brittany

An area of Rumbling Bald that I hadn’t really paid much attention to until those leaves on the mountains were screaming at me to pay attention! 🙂

Allison’s Dad cracked me up!!! He was a boisterous, charismatic South Carolinian with the accent to match! One of those quintessential jokesters, a flirt, who loved a good laugh & shagging! My favorite kind of Wedding Dad! 🙂

I hope this little girl grows up & cherishes this image of her dancing with her Grandpa!

And they lived Happily, Ever, After! xo

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!)

Ryan & Rebecca are the Sweetest!

They were Married in late September at Rumbling Bald Resort in Lake Lure, NC — just about 45 Mins South/East of Asheville!

Things I LOVED about this Wedding:

– Rebecca’s Romantic Wedding Dress / her Gorgeous Silhouette!

-Their Wedding Style – the way they used Burgundy (also very Romantic)

– I LOVE a good, authentic, emotional reaction from a Groom! <3

50/Fifty the Art of Desserts absolutely Killed it on those Kitty Cat Cupcakes & Cake (it was also delicious)!!!

DJ Spin Fire’s Personality / Funny Games (& that sweet lighting rig makes for cool reception photos!)

 

Many CONGRATULATIONS to Rebecca & Ryan!

Thank You SO Much for asking me to help you to document your day & to tell your story!

XO

Brittany

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!

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! 🙂

Mitch & Megan are seriously the coolest!

They were Married on 4.8.17 in South Florida when they said I DO in an intimate backyard ceremony & reception with their closest family & friends!

They LOVE Asheville and the Mountains of WNC and wanted to Honeymoon here & they thought they’d shoot a Newlywed Portrait Session on the Blue Ridge Parkway while they were at it!

We had the BEST time together!

{we’re even gonna meet up for a beer this weekend!}

I just pulled a few random images from our evening together…

Enjoy!

This Wedding was Absolutely one of my Favorite Weddings of the Season!

Primarily because Michael & Hallie were so Incredibly Sweet!!!

The day was a SUPER Hot July Day & the Summer Heat was ‘kind’ enough to deliver us some Rain after their Ceremony…

*Which is a good omen for Michael & Hallie as it promises fertility for their Marriage!*

{I was in my 1st trimester of pregnancy at the time and looking back, I don’t know how in the world I made it through a 10hr Wedding Day!!!}

I’m certain that the only reasons I made it through were: The arctic AC in the church, my amazing 2nd shooter that day {Tessa Blackstone}, Michael & Hallie & their Families being the Absolute SWEETEST people EVER, the hour long meal time/rest break built into their Reception & the Delicious Food provided by Rumbling Bald’s Catering Staff! 😉

Michael & Hallie were High School Sweet Hearts…

They both have Big Catholic Families, they met at Church, their Families have been Friends years, they went to the same College to be together & this past Summer, they Said I DO to a lifetime together!!!

Hallie is a Pediatric Nurse at the Children’s Hospital and Michael is currently finishing up Law School!

These guys are the cutest, sweetest couple ever! 🙂

Their Wedding was totally Beautiful {I love Catholic Weddings} & they had one heck of a Party afterward!

Enjoy!
