Jaclyn and Joey had a Biltmore front lawn wedding and I’m still swooning over all of the epic moments at this event. I was grateful for a wonderful creative team who worked so hard to execute
the perfect wedding for this awesome couple. Often times I stop to think about what a huge honor and responsibility that my clients have entrusted with me. It takes being present and knowing the decisive moment for every part of the wedding day. I’m thankful for my job and for the clients who trust me to do it with creative freedom, like I had with this wedding.

I can’t wait for this couple’s wedding on New Year’s Eve at Biltmore! We caught the golden light for their e-session and the rest is history. Check out the splendor of gardens at Biltmore and engagement bliss.

High Hampton holds a special place for me and my family. So many beautiful memories have been made there and it’s a favorite spot for me to capture weddings. Things I loved about this wedding…

1. Their dog was completely adorable and wore the sweetest bandana around her neck.
2. The bride made her own itinerary programs that were printed beautifully. I love the thoughtful details like this that truly personalize a wedding experience for the guests.
3. There was a flower girl and flower baby! Cuteness overload.
4. They had llamas at the cocktail hour.
5. Katherine’s dad sang with the band.

Katherine provided these fun facts…

Frank and I have known each other since meeting in 1st grade and 3 of Frank’s groomsmen were in our same class.

Lilah, our dog was once a mangy stray that Frank found at a lake in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. (She’s come a long way).

Our officiant was a former coworker of mine. Although he is well over 30 years my senior and we don’t have much in common, we are best buddies!

This is the fourth year I have had the honor of photographing my kind and talented friends, The MOZINGOS. I have captured the arrival of both of their sons and many family memories. When they approached me about a special kind of shoot in celebration of their 10 year anniversary, I was all about it. They wore the original attire from their wedding and looked fabulous! We caught the golden hour and they even renewed their vows to each other!
Meriah had her make up done by Wendy at Blush Asheville and hair by Hughes Hair Design. She looked stunning in every way!

Taking time to renew their vows and reconnect was one of my favorite parts of this awesome shoot. The tears and heartfelt connection will be engrained in my mind.
