Katherine & Eric // Asheville, NC // Biltmore Wedding//July 9, 2014

2014-07-09_0002

“In case things get crazy, I just want you to know how excited and glad we are to have you here …” Katherine’s dad said as he walked across the crowded rehearsal venue floor.  ”Please enjoy and celebrate with us.”

The room was soaked with affection.  My eyes filled with tears on more than one occasion as I listened to complete strangers speak kindness into their closest friends as they celebrated Katherine and Eric’s love. Everything was perfect. The flowers, the dress, the band … even the guests were beautiful. The Biltmore was just icing on the cake.  But the perfection wasn’t made from pretty things … it was the deep love and affection that these two families share for one another.  Thank you, Katherine and Eric, for letting us be a part of that, even for just a moment. We are truly grateful.

We’ve had the privilege of watching this family grow… Every time they get more and more adorable.  We travel from Asheville to Charlotte at least once a month for these cute moments.  We love our job.

Heather & Ryan // Chapel Hill, NC Wedding//June 19, 2014

2014-06-19_0033

We had such a wonderful time in Chapel Hill with these two.  From the Carolina Inn to Top of the Hill the afternoon was seamless and beautiful.  We traded in our Asheville mountains for some high class southern charm for the weekend and loved every minute of it.  We wish all the best to Heather and Ryan as they start this new exciting journey together.

#tbt winner // Cindy & Andrew//June 12, 2014

Cindy & Andrew became friends of ours instantly.  They chose the less traditional path of a small intimate destination wedding in the Outer Banks of NC and then threw a big party for their friends and family back home in Chicago a few months later.  We love destination weddings.

Their gallery is open.  Cindy and Andrew and all their friends and family will receive 25% off all albums, prints, and gallery wraps for the next 30 days.

Raleigh Grace and Savannah // Charlotte, NC//May 22, 2014

 

2014-05-21_0001What a fun day at the park with this adorable family.  Raleigh Grace was picking wild berries and putting on lip gloss as quickly as she could lick it off.  While Savannah giggled and pulled every bow off her head.  Karl and Allie are raising some adorable southern charm.  We can’t wait to see them again as these two grow.
