Andrea & Shawn – Beautiful Mountain Wedding – The Farm – Candler, NC – 5.5.18

I am oh, so happy to be showcasing this wedding! My first wedding in the mountains since moving to Asheville and I am so grateful it was with an amazing couple like Andrea and Shawn. I have visited the Farm a few times before their wedding and I’m so happy I got to photograph their beautiful event space. They offer a wonderful rustic feel to the ceremony site and reception area. Even though it isn’t too far away from the highway you still feel like you are tucked away in the mountains surrounded beautiful forests, mountain views and a quaint farm with nearby horses.

Andrea and Shawn are a wonderful couple and I loved working with them! I had photographed their engagement photos in Charlotte a few weeks prior and had so much fun I knew their wedding day was going to be magical!

Urban Farm Girl had the floral arrangements for the wedding and if you know anything about me you know that I always swoon over wedding flowers! I loved the organic feel to the table arrangements and Andrea’s bouquet (I died over the succulents and the anemones) and the pops of lavender and beautiful greens.

Andrea and Shawn shared a magical first look together, both of them excited for the ceremony soon. During their ceremony the reminisced about how they first met, their crazy first memories as a couple and how they have blossomed into the couple they are now. The rain had started towards the end and they hurriedly kissed and rushed down the aisle, followed by umbrellas. Luckily the rain didn’t last long after that and we were able to capture more magic across the street!

The rest of their special day was filled with admiration from their friends and family of their relationship, now marriage along with a Cinco-de-Mayo pinata game during the reception, dancing alone under the cafe lights and a glow stick exit! I loved documenting their special day and capturing it with lovely photos!

 

Enjoy!

Brittany & Miguel – Liberty, NC – Mason Ridge 6.24.17

I’ve always been drawn to the storytelling aspect of wedding photography. Wedding days are full of so many different stories and wonderful moments! Getting to document all of them, then piece them together to create one amazing love story is one of my favorite things.

Nothing says summer in North Carolina like thick humidity in the morning and then dark storm clouds with a downpour of rain in the afternoon. Brittany and Miguel definitely got a taste of a true summer day in North Carolina. The morning started out normal with gorgeous sunshine and sporadic clouds. Brittany and her bridesmaids were getting ready at Mason Ridge, Brittany hiding the anxious smile on her face the whole time.

By the time Miguel and his groomsmen arrived the storm clouds rolled in. But that didn’t phase either of them. When the wind and the rain eventually did come it arrived just before the ceremony was about to start. We all decided to wait it out, knowing that rainstorms here don’t last that long usually. Everyone held their breath as the rain continued, hoping to see a break in the clouds. Brittany, surrounded by her mother and her bridesmaids, prayed for sunshine and for the rest of the day to run smoothly.

Thankfully, just as we were about to rearrange the entire schedule the sky opened up and the rain stopped!! Brittany got to walk down the aisle escorted by her father, exchange vows with her now husband and have her perfect wedding day! I was in awe the whole time and so thankful that the rain had stopped. I captured pure joy that day and when it was all over it just reaffirmed by love for wedding photography. I hope ya’ll enjoy these awesome photos!!

Caitlin & Ethan – Wilmington, NC – Burgwin Wright House 4.22.17

I am so excited to be sharing my first coastal wedding! I never thought I’d be shooting a wedding in Wilmington so soon, but here I am! Caitlin and Ethan were my first wedding to kick off the spring/summer wedding season for me and I was super happy to be a part of their special day!

Their wedding ceremony and reception was held at the historic Burgwin-Wright House located in downtown Wilmington, it’s also one of the oldest buildings in downtown Wilmington. With the gorgeous house, beautiful tiered gardens with lush greenery and colorful flowers it was not hard to capture some magic that day! The whole day was very relaxed, probably the most laid back wedding I’ve photographed yet. Caitlin and Ethan just focused on getting married and having a wonderful day and nothing was going to stop them!

There is definite love between the two of them and getting to capture it was such a pleasure! Hope you enjoy the photos!
