Katherine and Melissa at the Fields of Blackberry Cove

What a sweet wedding day to share!! Katherine and Melissa were so adorable together and their day was full of loads of love and support from their friends and family. These two beautiful brides tied the knot at the Fields of Blackberry Cove in Weaverville, NC on Oct. 20 of this past year (yes, I’m slowly catching up on blog posts in my off season this year). Here are some highlights from Katherine and Melissa’s sweet wedding day:

All my love to you both, thanks for trusting me to capture this special day!

Megan and Patrick at Claxton Farm

Megan and Patrick tied the knot on a sunny October day (14, 2017) at Claxton Farm in Weaverville, NC (just outside of Asheville).  Besides being one of the most adorable couples I’ve had the pleasure of meeting in my many years as a photographer, these two were also both so sweet, so intelligent and so obviously well-matched. It was such a joy to play a part in their wedding day!

Big thanks to my second photographer, Morgan Ford, who helped me capture this special day!

All the best to Megan and Patrick! Thanks so much for trusting me with your special memories!

MacKenzie and Justin at the Lake Lure Inn

Jumping ahead a little bit to October 7, 2017 for MacKenzie and Justin’s beautiful, warm wedding day at the 1921 Lake Lure Inn and Spa. I absolutely love working out here on the lake, the scenery is unmatchable! The open-faced mountain views (near Chimney Rock) combined with the lake and adorable town make Lake Lure a magical setting. Not to mention, the film dirty dancing (original) was filmed here, the Inn is on the national historic sites registry and is just filled to the brim with interesting and quirky art , well-manicured gardens, and amazing people!

Speaking of amazing people, big thanks to Regina Holder for second shooting this wedding with me!

Here are some highlights from Mackenzie and Justin’s love-filled wedding day:

MacKenzie was a such a stunning bride!

Anna and Ryan at Deerfields, Asheville

Better late than never! I’m catching up on the blog after an amazing 2017 season. I am starting with this inspiring wedding day because in a lot of ways it represents why it is that I love shooting weddings so much. The setting was absolutely incredible at Deerfields campground just outside of Asheville. Guests camped all weekend on site or stayed in the cabins (also onsite), swam and played in the lake and enjoyed the beautiful mountain setting.

Anna and Ryan tied the knot on July 8, 2017. The day started as a rainy one, not just a sprinkle, but pouring down rain. Guests huddled under the main cabin to escape the rain before the ceremony. Rain on a wedding day can get a lot of people down, not these guys! They stayed positive and made the decision to go on with the day as planned as the rain lightened up. Everyone grabbed their umbrellas and walked up the hill to a beautiful ceremony site in the woods and followed the Firecracker Jazz Band and danced all the way down to the reception. By the time Anna and Ryan reached the reception they were married and the rain was finished, leaving the mountains draped with a beautiful fog: The perfect setting for family photos!

Firecracker Jazz Band and DJ Kipper entertained guests into the night and they danced under the moonlight! It was a truly romantic and beautiful day! Events by Kiersa Holly did an amazing job planning and organizing this amazing event and Black Eyed Susan catering delivered some of the best wedding food I’ve ever eaten!! Here are some highlights from this inspiring wedding day:

Kelly and Daniel at Camp Wayfarer in Flat Rock, NC

SO excited to share this sweet wedding day today! From the time I first spoke with Kelly on the phone about hers and Daniel’s wedding, I was so excited to be a part of the telling of their story! These two met at summer camp (Camp Wayfarer) and brought all their friends and family back to that same camp to tie the knot on May 13.

What I enjoyed most about documenting Kelly and Daniel’s wedding day is watching the two of them interact with each other all day. In my 11 years of being a wedding photographer, I’m not sure I’ve seen a couple more genuinely excited to get married and so obviously in love with each other! Truly! There were times on the dance floor my heart melted watching them smile at each other… I would even look back at Kelly’s mother and find her reacting the same way and give her that “oh my god they are so cute” smile! I truly hope I captured this in these photos!

Thanks to Celine and Co Catering, SugarCloud Bakery, Smash Events (Dominique), Cotton Rouge, Steel Toe Stiletto, my second photographer Regina Holder, and all those who helped to make this such a successful wedding day!

Here’s my visual story of this spectacular camp wedding:

Kelly and Daniel were SO CUTE in this moment right after the ceremony!!!

Steel Toe Stiletto Band was EPIC!!

Sending lots of love to this sweet couple! Thanks for letting me document your special day!
