Katie and Ben at the Biltmore

Couldn’t be more excited to share this special wedding day with you! I’ve known Katie since our days playing YMCA basketball together in Raleigh so seeing her glowing on her wedding day was pretty special! Katie and Ben were married at the Biltmore Estate in Asheville on July 9 surrounded by so much love, family, and friends. Tamara of Belle Soiree did an amazing job making sure all the details of the day fell into place perfectly. Here are some of my favorites from this amazing wedding day:

The Perfect 10 Band was hands down one the the BEST bands I’ve ever seen at a wedding…. EVER.

Congratulations to my sweet friend, Katie and her lucky husband, Ben! 🙂 🙂 Thanks for trusting me with your special memories!

Valerie and James in Asheville, NC

I couldn’t adore this couple more. Valerie and James are so down to earth and genuinely in love with each other. It’s apparent that their love is grounded in friendship above everything. We had a blast exploring the Biltmore Estate for their engagement portraits last year and it was such an honor to help them celebrate their wedding day on June 18 of this year. The amazing Carrie Turner came on as my second photographer and Nicole Bloom of Two Sweet Sparrows did an impeccable job making sure everything came together beautifully! Here are some of my favorites from their amazing wedding day:

Orange Krush Band was fantastic!

Cheers to Valerie and James! Thank You so much for allowing us to play such an important role on your wedding day!

Ian and Courtney in Carrollton, GA

I don’t say this lightly, but Ian and Courtney’s wedding was one of the most beautiful and unique celebrations I’ve seen in ten years of being a wedding photographer.  It had elements of a traditional southern garden wedding mixed in with the energy and vibrance of a music festival (not to mention the live artist and killer band The Fritz). Ian and Courtney met at a Phish concert so the later half of their reception went well into the night and felt more like a concert than a wedding! Balloons and glowsticks everywhere, sweaty enthusiasm on the dance floor, and joy. Lots of JOY.

I’m so happy for my friends, Ian and Courtney! Thanks for letting me play such a big role in your amazing day! Here are some highlights from their wedding on June 11, 2016:

This was easily my favorite moment(s) of the day; Champagne was poured, everyone grabbed a balloon and walked down to the reception site together. It was quite a parade!

!!!!!

Hands down, the most beautiful wedding cake I’ve EVER seen. Truly.

Handmade with love by friend of the bride’s family, Ann Fletcher

The Fritz band was amazing!

All in all, it was a pretty epic wedding day! Sending lots of love to Ian and Courtney! Big thanks to my assistant photographer, Meredith, for traveling down to Georgia with me!
