It’s always flattering when we get asked to get to photograph someone’s wedding. It’s even more flattering to be asked by another wedding photographer. I mean, that basically makes me a wedding photographer’s photographer. That sounds pretty cool. I mean that’s like the surgeon that operates on the surgeon. Or the dentist who fills the other dentist’s cavity. It’s probably the ultimate compliment you can pay someone of your profession. Debra and I certainly didn’t take that lightly this past weekend at Andrew and Lauren’s wedding.

We started off with Lauren, making some awesome images of her finishing up getting ready for the big day. Afterwards we headed to the Cliffs at Glassy Clubhouse for some pictures of the bridal party before the ceremony just minutes away at the iconic Cliffs at Glassy Chapel. Afterwards we couldn’t help but climb up to the top of the mountain and make some gorgeous images as the sunset. Shortly after we headed to the Cliffs Valley Clubhouse for their reception. It was a night filled with plenty of great food, toasts, dancing, and a sparkler filled exit. Throughout the whole thing, Andrew and Lauren couldn’t have read our minds more. Even though the whole day flew by for us, photography came first, a decision I’m sure they will be happy they made down the road. Check it out:

Beautiful Spring Wedding at Twigs Tempietto | Michelle + Andrew

I remember walking around the downtown Greenville Farmer’s Market just a few hours before Michelle and Andrew’s wedding, and overhearing a couple in front of us talking about the weather. The lady walking in front of us said, “Wow! All those brides that planned outdoor weddings today hit the JACKPOT!” I smiled, and remembered back to our wedding at Twigs just a little over three years ago, and how we hit the jackpot on weather as well.

It’s always a risk to plan an outdoor wedding, and Twigs Tempietto does have a very good backup plan, but it’s just so much better when the weather works out and you can really open everything up. Michelle and Andrew had the best of both worlds, with gorgeous sunny skies and the perfect temperature for an outdoor event. Between all the fun of dancing under the full moon, plenty of great drinks and food, and a beautiful setting it was definitely a great start to Michelle and Andrew’s marriage.

Enchantingly Foggy Cliffs at Glassy Wedding | Kelsey + Chris

I would have to assume, when most of our brides want to get married at Cliffs at Glassy Mountain Chapel, they do so because they want to get married up in the clouds. Kelsey and Chris took the cloud theme to a whole new level this past weekend – they got married in a cloud.

Yes, while the panoramic view wasn’t there, it was replaced by something even more enchanting – a thick fog that covered the entire mountain. So what’s the cool thing about fog? Because everything in the distance is washed out, it forces you focus on what is close to you. You don’t have a choice but to focus on that moment, that little space around you that you can see. When it comes to weddings, I can’t think of a more perfect symbolism. Block out all distractions and focus on what is really close to your heart – your new spouse, your family and friends, and the beautiful commitment you are making. And that’s exactly what Kelsey and Chris did.

Grand Bohemian Asheville Wedding Photos | Julie + Allen

20 Apr 2015

I had a feeling that Julie and Allen’s wedding was going to be a lot of fun. Maybe it was the orange and white checkered pants Allen wore to their engagement session? Or was it the rustic yet elegantly quirky vibe the Grand Bohemian Asheville Hotel gives off? Nope, I’m pretty sure its Julie and Allen’s hilarious sense of humor and the ability to laugh off just about any embarrassing situation. Now that I look back at the photos, it’s absolutely true. This was one of the most hilarious, entertaining, and unique weddings I’ve ever documented.

The Grand Bohemian in Asheville North Carolina set the perfect backdrop for Julie and Allen’s wedding. With it’s beautifully appointed lobby, rooms, and ballroom it was just the perfect touch of lodge-y, rustic elegance. We started off with some getting-ready photos in the bridal suite and headed down the hall to a beautiful outdoor ceremony. Afterwards the cocktail hour got the party started before everyone entered in the stunning Grand Bohemian ballroom. Below the sparkeling crystal chandeliers, Julie and Allen kicked off one of the wildest wedding parties I’ve seen in a long time. It was complete with an epic cake smash, plenty of “creative” dancing, and some of the best speeches I’ve ever heard at a wedding – seriously! Check it out:
