Between the most amazing sunset that I have ever witnessed at the Crest Center and Pavilion (and quite possibly, my whole life) to the shooting star later that night, I was ready to pack up and say I’ve seen it all.  I don’t think Kiki and Tim’s wedding day could have gotten any more magical. Maybe if a mermaid riding a unicorn appeared…but that is seriously the only thing that could have made it more magical.

Laura and Victor’s first look was the sweetest ever! I think I have something in my eyes, y’all! (Dare you guys not to start blubbering while looking at them).

I also love how some flowers remind me of which couples were married when and I believe I will always think of Laura and Victor’s wedding when the rhododendron are in bloom.  They were absolutely beautiful at The Farm this year!

Robyn and Joshua: Bold Rock Hard Cider Asheville Wedding

So honored that we photographed the first wedding ever at Bold Rock Hard Cider located just south of Asheville.  They have a really cool open field that was perfect for the ceremony. And of course, Bold Rock has the perfect ciders as well.  Every time we see a dog at a wedding, we have to resist the urge to scream, “PUPPY!”  We loved Robyn and Josh’s dog Jack and his dapper tie. We also loved the sentimentality behind their heart locket.  They placed dirt from where they first dated, where they were engaged, and where they got married into the glass locket.

Associate photographer Jo kicked off her wedding season at the always pretty Crest Center and Pavilion. Melissa was radiant in her beautiful gown – I love the back of her gown so much! And, the recreation of the Vibe Magazine cover that Josh and his groomsmen posed for had me reeling with laughter.  Looked like such a fun day!

Part 2 – Meredith + Robert: The Venue

The wedding weekend fun continued in downtown Asheville at The Venue. Their adorable pup Matilda immediately stole the show with her ultra chic garland collar and those happy to see everybody eyes. Eschewing the tradition of having a wedding party (since everyone was important and beloved by them), the ceremony had an incredible sense of intimacy – flickering candles and beautiful sheer white curtains (translates to beautiful soft lighting) framed the couple. Later, they had a dance party for the ages. SteelToe Stiletto really brought the house down and then there was a surprise serenade by Ken Block of Sister Hazel. WHAT. I’d say this was a pretty amazing start to the wedding season.

Part 1 – Meredith + Robert: The Century Room Rehearsal Dinner

I love these first moments on the night before when friends and family first gather together in anticipation for the next day. Meredith and Rob started their wedding weekend off on Friday night at The Century Room on the Park. They had a surprise slideshow in store for their guests, and since most of their toasts were going to be given at the rehearsal dinner, they knew that they wanted pics captured of those moments. Photographing the day before the wedding also helped us get in a practice run of the couple’s portraits. Wins all around. 🙂
