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!

Bryson City Land’s Creek Wedding: Alex + Joseph

I was lucky enough to be able to spend not one day but two days with Alex and Joseph for their wedding weekend in Bryson City, NC.  When they first approached me, they told me how they wanted to spend the majority of their wedding day with their family and not have to worry about portraits of the two of them until the day after the wedding. It ended up being absolutely perfect intuition because seconds before their ceremony, the skies opened up with a torrential rain. But as we all know, rain on a wedding day is good luck and they will certainly have good luck in abundance! Thankfully, the rain let up just for us to do family and wedding party portraits.  The rain started up again right as we wrapped the last portrait.

The day after wedding portraits were relaxing and super fun as we hiked from waterfalls to riverbeds in the Smoky Mountains in beautiful weather. Such a great way to extend the wedding weekend!

Always love photographing at Claxton Farm and I love photographing there even more when we have a gorgeous day and a lovely (and hilarious) couple. Oh and one of the guests caught a fish (a really big fish!) in the pond. Good times for all.

Between our beautiful mountains, the Grove Park Inn and the artistry of Shay Brown Events, Lucy and Jeremy’s wedding was absolutely breathtaking.  From the way the inside of the tent’s roof was draped with layers of fabric to the way the reception room lit up at night, all the details of this wedding was the definition of elegance….except for maybe the PayDay/lollipop bouquet, Jeremy! 😉

This Texas couple decided on a destination wedding at Lake Lure, North Carolina because Joy grew up going to the lake and it has many sentimental memories for her. From the moment I met these two, I could tell how much they adored each other, and I am so thrilled to have been a part of it all in such a beautiful location.
