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. 🙂

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!
