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

Megan & Nick were Married in Grand Cayman on May 4, 2018  & Celebrated Stateside {in Raleigh, NC} with their closest Friends & Family on June 9, 2018!

Megan asked me to come down to Raleigh to help them document the occasion and I was happy to oblige!

Even got to spend a little time with my family who live in the triangle, which was super nice! 🙂

I’m gonna let ya’ll guess how Megan & Nick met!

I’m telling you – it’s more than like 90{aca9d9f8ecb93c9d11524cd7a64081bba5ff39534e7fc9a318fc8f38227edefe} of my couples these days ya’ll!

Any who, Nick & Megan are so Sweet & Funny – it was truly an honor to help them to document their Celebration at 1705 Prime in Raleigh!

Here’s a little sample of what the evening was like!
