This was a FUN shoot! Ari and Tricia laughed and joked the entire time we were together. They made the trip out for the weekend to take care of some details at High Hampton Inn for their wedding next spring and stopped by the Asheville area for their engagement session before jumping back on the plane. I can’t wait for their wedding next year; I’m sure it will be non-stop laughs and fun :)
This isn’t meant to be a “great photo,” but it was just too good of a moment to not share :)
I could barely hold the camera still with Ari sneaking into the background of this shot. Tricia seems to know what’s going on too :)
Laura and Field’s wedding day was pretty amazing in every way. Laura got ready at the Inn with her mom and a couple of her best friends. She wanted to do a small bridal session before she met up with Field, so we headed over in the shuttle to the house and did about 40 minutes of photos walking around. Field joined us and we did the first look and then about 45 minutes of bride and groom photos. It was the middle of the day (about 4), so the sky was crystal clear blue with amazing views of the mountains. Following bride and groom photos we headed back to the Inn to freshen up, collect the rest of the family with the shuttle and head over to the Walled Garden for the ceremony. The ceremony lasted about 20 minutes. After the wedding ceremony we did family photos, bridal party photos, and another 10 minutes of bride and groom before they were introduced. After introductions, they cut the cake and had dinner.
All in all, it was a pretty fantastic day. Candace from Mingle Events did a fantastic job designing and organizing the whole event. The Biltmore did an amazing job with the food and everything else. If you would like to know more specific times for their timeline, I’d be happy to help.
This was an intimate summer wedding at the beautiful Westglow Resort near Blowing Rock. The bride, groom, their son and about 50 of the closest friends and family joined to celebrate. Maddy met Samantha and Chad last spring to do their engagement photos. Having worked together in the past made things really relaxed for everyone and they were able to get some really beautiful photos in only a couple of minutes following the ‘first look.’ The ceremony backdrop was the fabulous Appalachian Mountains and crystal clear blue skies. There were lots of beautiful details around, including a vintage couch, stunning flowers by Fuschia Moss Floral Design and general design by Jennifer Williams from Westglow. The speeches were touching, the cake was divine and the food was splendid. Venues with this good of a view of the mountains are pretty rare. One with a view and elegance are even more rare.
