Champagne Cellar Wedding

Jessica and Ryan chose the intimate setting of the Champagne Cellar at Biltmore Estate for their wedding. With just a few vendors, they created a masterpiece! We started the day at the Grand Bohemian Hotel across from Biltmore. The big open rooms are wonderful for the preparations with all the bridesmaids.
And then to the Inn on Biltmore to meet Ryan. Yes, they are both good looking and just wait till you see them together!
I love the anticipation during the first look!
The estate grounds have so many locations for photographs. Jessica and Ryan gave me lots of time to play! Here a few of my favorites!
The Flower Gallery of Asheville added their special touch to this ceremony.
The beautiful ladies and handsome gentlemen!
Love the Groom's cake!
Though it is a small space, you can still have a bouquet and garter toss! Ryan decided to give Jessica a surprise dance.
I love sparklers!

English Garden Wedding at Pinebrook Manor

I absolutely LOVE this wedding and all the little details. Amber and Tag chose to have an English Garden Wedding at Pinebrook Manor in Hendersonville, NC. One of my favorite dresses ever, Amber's ceremony gown was designed by her friend. The bottom layer was from her grandmothers gown with an overlay of blue and lace. Absolutely stunning!
Love the creativity for the ceremony set up and each guest having their own vintage chair.
This image just touches my heart. Amber and her grandfather. So sweet!
The garden was brought inside for the reception by Choy's Flowers and Ikebana. Love her use of flowers in the tent. Amber creativity didn't end with the ceremony, she had picked tea cups for each guest and each table was named after their favorite tea. A true English Tea Garden Party! Each table had different ribbons and accents. So cute!
And what would this party be without something for the ladies to wear in their hair...
Loved their first dance and her adorable reception dress and pink shoes!


Wedding at the Lake Lure Inn and Spa / Dawn and Ty

There are so many things about Dawn and Ty's wedding at the Lake Lure Inn that I want to share, but I can't post hundreds of photos! So I am going to just have to settle with these favorites to tell their story. I started photographing the weekend with an "engagement session" even though it was a day before the actual wedding. They wanted the beautiful scenery around Lake Lure and Chimney Rock so we made a little time to play. I just love photographing down by the river. That night was the rehearsal dinner and a bonfire beach party. Yes that was a blast! I highly recommend doing that if you are getting married at Lake Lure Inn. Everyone loved it!!!!! The wedding day arrived and it was a perfect sunny day! The ladies looked fabulous! I love the cranberry red of the Bill Levkoff dresses!
A beautiful ceremony by Jacqueline Weiks of Your Perfect Ceremony. I love how she is always smiling!
Someone was very happy about this kiss!
Love the flowers and decor of the reception by Mandy of An English Flower Cottage. Not only is she a talented florist, but she also was the event planner making all this flow smoothly.
Dawn in her Nicole Miller gown and Ty in his Vera Wang grey vested tux looked quite stunning together! In fact the entire bridal party looked incredible! Love the kids being so darling for the camera.
Now this is an entrance!
What is a delicious dinner without dessert? How about pie? No "cake" cutting, just pie cutting. And how cute to have individual pies for the guests in multiple flavors!
Of course, one of my favorite moments is the mother/son and father/daughter dance.
The dances followed by a packed dance floor because Johnny White and the Elite Band were incredible!
And a perfect sendoff…sparklers!
One other vendor that I must give props to was Crown Alley Films. I love working with videographers that know their stuff and we can work in tandem, allowing each of us to get what the couple is expecting from both video and photography! Alan was awesome! Thank you to everyone that made this day possible, especially Dawn and Ty. I wish you two all the love and happiness that this world has to offer for you and your family!
