We first met Chelsea and Nick at last year’s Bridal Showcase at Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden in Belmont, NC, so being with this sweet couple for their wedding at this same gorgeous place was very meaningful and almost surreal for us.  Working with couples during their engagement like that really helps us get to know them, and we absolutely loved working with Chelsea and Nick.  It makes their “special day” special for us too. 🙂

Congratulations, guys!

From the time we first met with Greta, Dante’ and their families to discuss their June wedding at Diana at Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC, we were hooked.  The more we heard about their plans, the more we couldn’t wait to see all these ideas come to fruition. Starting with Biltmore anyway, we knew it would be a special day, then with the help of Shay Brown Events, the details were nothing short of incredible. Is Greta not absolutely the picture of grace?! Add to it all the sweet souls of this bride and groom, the romance and joy they exude, and a beautiful southern summer day, it was a sight to behold.

Greta and Dante’, congratulations!  How honored and humbled we feel to have worked with you all leading up to the wedding and to have photographed your special day.  We loved every minute! You all make the world shine a little brighter.

Lands Creek Cabins in Bryson City, NC gave Lidija and Michael’s wedding such a lush, alluring, rare setting that only foggy summer days in the North Carolina mountains can give. Days like this have a sweet peace, just like the smell of rain (that we still remember, looking through these photos!) This felt to us like the perfect framework for Lidija and Michael’s wedding day.  Their laughter, love, the looks they exchanged each other, their ease and joy seemed to us to replenish the world around them, just like the summer rain.  We feel so honored they trusted us to photograph such a fun, intimate day.

Congratulations Lidija and Michael!!

Troy and Katie were married earlier this year, but we feel so lucky that they decided to travel to Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC do an “after session.”  These sessions are always so much fun for us.  It’s the best of both worlds: the excitement and fun of the wedding attire, without the hurried schedule of the wedding day.  Couples have the time and space to breathe and get the photos they want, enjoying their time together…it’s a little bit of wedding and a little bit of honeymoon on the same day!  🙂

Congratulations to Katie and Troy and THANK you guys for allowing us the awesome opportunity to get some photos for you at this wonderful place.  Looking at these photos, you two absolutely shine! PINIMAGE
