This fabulous couple was married at the scenic Crest Pavilion. Things I loved about their wedding…

1. Holly surprised John with an awesome album of boudoir photos. He was floored and said it was the best gift he had ever received!
2. They passed their rings around to each guest in a sweet little wooden box during the ceremony to have people bless and pray for them.
3. I spent time with the couple in downtown Asheville before we went to Crest. It was fun and we had time to get some cool shots before they went down the aisle. Asheville offers so much!
4. The little details as well as Krispy Cream donuts for the guest favors really added a sweet touch!
5. The bond with the bride and groom and their friends was so fun to see on the dance floor!

I’m getting caught up on blog posts and had to share this Little Switzerland wedding. Emily and Hunter were great to work with. Some of my favorite things about this event…

1. They used ferns and orchids! I loved how organic things looked and it was fun to photograph all of the green!
2. Their custom signage was over the top. Check out how they incorporated their dogs into the signature cocktail menu.
3. Emily gave the funniest toast I have ever heard. She had her guests rolling. I think she’s secretly a comedian.
4. The mountain views at sunset were some of the best I’d ever seen.
5. First time I’ve ever seen edible confetti thrown at the end of the night. Not only was it tasty, but the colors made for a fun photographs.

By looking at the images from this beautiful Biltmore wedding, you can’t tell that it was about 17 degrees! Marlee and Jim, as well as their wedding party, were troopers. Things I loved about this event…

1. The winter decor was truly gorgeous. From the crisp white, to the pinecone accents, I really love the ‘clean beauty’ of this event.
2. Marlee and I use the same perfume. She had sweet details that were fun to photograph.
3. I almost cried with the bride read the letter Jim wrote to her before the ceremony. Seeing the tears stream down her face brought their love to the forefront of this moment.

Stay tuned for Part Two and one AWESOME reception!
