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! ūüôā

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!

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 planning their Destination Wedding at Hidden River Events this October!

They were in town last weekend to do some Wedding planning/related tasks & we got together to shoot Engagement Photos early in the morning on Sunday before they left town!

They were hoping for mountain views but the fog had other plans for us that morning!

They might not have gotten those iconic Asheville mountain range views for their session BUT they did get some incredibly beautiful images none the less!

Jusssst making Lemonade, Folks! ūüôā

Enjoy!

The 2018 Wedding Season is certainly off to a Fantastic start!

Demi & Jake were Married on Cinco De Mayo at The 1927 Lake Lure Inn & Spa!

They are the Cutest, Sweetest, Most Fun Couple!

Showing up to shoot their Wedding Day was like re-uniting with old friends!

If you’re on the fence about an Engagement Session – here’s why you should take advantage of the Complimentary Engagement Session included in your Wedding Collection!

By choosing to shoot an Engagement Session with me Рwe got the chance to actually know each other before their Wedding!

We shot their Engagement Session at Biltmore last Fall & spent a couple hours laughing together while doing it!

Then, I shot Demi’s Bridal Portrait Session at Biltmore last month & so, when I saw them on their Wedding Day, it was like re-uniting with old friends!

Because we got to know each other, I adore them & was genuinely excited about shooting their Wedding!

Thus, the beautiful result!

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

“I love you.

For all that you are.

For all that you have been.

For all that you have yet to be.”

We shot Amanda & Koleton’s Mountain Engagement Session last summer in Asheville!

I LOVED this Engagement Session…

I loved the flowers and the warm light & the playful affection between them!

They’ll be saying I’DO this June at Cabin Among the Oaks in Canton, NC & we can’t wait for their Wedding!

I LOVED Everything about this Wedding!

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

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 РI 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! ūüôā

This was one of my favorite Weddings of the 2016 Season!

I mean, who doesn’t Love a Themed Wedding!?

Seth & Jessica were each other’s Exception to the Rule…

They met in a bar of all places on Jessica’s Birthday in the summer of 2014, neither were looking for love & both swore it couldn’t happen in a bar! ūüėČ

Jessica was minding her own business, feeding the Juke Box when Seth approached her to find out who was playing all that Old School Rap Music!

They  pretty much became inseparable after that night!

 Seth, the outdoorsman, started taking Jessica canoeing & hiking, which she quickly fell in love with!

They¬†love to travel and have been to the Grand Canyon &¬†Aruba together¬†where they¬†went SKYDIVING on their Honeymoon! ūüôā

They’re currently training for their next big adventure; to hike Yosemite National Park in California, where¬†Jessica¬†was born and raised!

These two are Easy Going, Fun Loving, Wonderful People & their Wedding Day was truly a Reflection of their Spirit!

They planned an Outdoor, Prohibition Era Themed Wedding in early September at Yesterday’s Spaces in Leicester, NC

{which is just outside of Asheville, NC city limits!}

I ADORED Jessica’s Dress & thought her Bouquet {Courtesy of It Can Be Arranged Floral Studio} was one of the most beautiful I had ever seen!

Everyone in attendance was dressed the part {in the Spirit of the Prohibition Era}!

I LOVED it & I think you will too!

Enjoy!
