The Grove Park Inn, the Biltmore Estate…these creme de la creme venues of the Southeast were the setting for Ashley and Zak’s wedding. Since the ceremony was going to be at sunset, they chose to see each other before to get some portraits, and I was so happy that they did. There’s something about such an intimate, tender moment existing simultaneously against such expansive beauty such as a sunset over the one of the world’s oldest mountains, the Blue Ridge, that is truly heartwarming and humbling all at the same time. It is during these shared moments when I realize what a privilege it is to be a wedding photographer.
Their ceremony at the Walled Garden next to the Biltmore Estate was just as beautiful and concluded with doves being released into the dusky sky.
Thanks to Beth Ely and Shawn Bauguess for helping me photograph this amazing event and thanks to Ash and Zak – I had so much fun getting to know you and photographing you and your friends and family!
