Paige and David’s wedding at Homewood was chock full of beautiful, creative details and our associate photographer Jo did a perfect job in capturing all of them.  I particularly love the sleeves on Paige’s gown. The gown was so befitting of the iconic 1920’s venue.

We’ve photographed at Yesterday Spaces so many times that it feels like home. We love the location and the people that work there. It never fails to inspire and with the cows roaming in the pastures and the sun lighting the autumn trees gold, Melissa and Brett’s wedding was particularly striking.

Frolic along a river bank? Amble amongst cows on an insanely picturesque mountain meadow with more mountains surrounding you? Laugh and joke around with clients who seem more like old friends? Yes! Yes! YASSSSS!! Though my frolicking around river banks ending up more like dunking my left foot into a river – but the photo that I got whilst that happened? WORTH IT. Can’t wait to frolic, amble, and laugh with Laura and Victor next April at their wedding!

Emily and Jay dated while attending Virginia Tech and they incorporated elements of their alma mater throughout their wedding day.  They had the university’s flag flying out welcoming everyone who arrived and I loved that they had keys to shake (in Hokie fashion) at the end of the night.

Ryan proposed to Shelly at the Botanical Gardens and then surprised her with lunch with her family at the wonderfully delicious, nationally accoladed Curate.  It was a no brainer to have their engagement portraits made in these same gorgeous places.  I can’t wait to photograph their wedding next year at the Masonic Temple in downtown Asheville!

From the “Sip, Sip, Hooray!” napkins to the golden accents that were sprinkled throughout, eye candy abounded at Kia and Mark’s Mountain Magnolia Inn wedding. Every detail was gorgeous and often witty. And, I cannot say enough how much I loved the maid of honor’s “MOH” hat – so awesome!

Alison may be one of the sweetest brides that I have encountered and I love that she and Tate have been friends since elementary school.  They had absolutely perfect weather and their wedding highlights how beautiful a wedding right here in Asheville’s downtown and it’s surrounding area can truly be.  We traveled to The Renaissance, The Haywood Park Hotel, the Botanical Gardens, Central United Methodist Church and The Venue. And, I have to believe that Mary Bell of Mary Bell Events carries a magic wand that makes everything gorgeous wherever she goes!

Now that Alison is married, I can share this bridal portrait that we did on this beautiful mountain. From the moody fog to the sweeping views, we were thrilled to to have witnessed an array of different scenes from high on the Blue Ridge Parkway.

This was such a fun wedding that took place at The Vineyards at Betty’s Creek (in Sylva, NC). At the end of the ceremony, the groom’s sister and her band played The Beatles’ “When I’m 64.” They and a few guests also had kazoos and hummed along to the tune. Such a cute and unique idea!
