BACKYARD WEDDING AT RITCHIE HILL

An intimate ceremony took place under the trees in the backyard of the elegant southern estate - Ritchie Hill in Concord, NC. Family gathered on a beautiful October day to celebrate Matt and Monica's wedding. I had the pleasure of meeting this couple while second shooting for the incredibly talented Rivkah of Rivkah Fine Art Photography. I met Rivkah at the Forest and Falls Workshop at Fall Creek Falls State Park. One of the highlights of the workshop was connecting with other photographers, and I'm flattered to have had the opportunity to work with her.

The ceremony is always a highlight for me when photographing a wedding. There wasn't a dry eye during Matt and Monica's ceremony as Monica walked her mother down the aisle to give her away to Matt. After the vows were exchanged, a family style meal was shared and heartfelt toasts made on the picturesque wrap around porch. A lovely fall wedding to witness!

ASHEVILLE WEDDING | NORTH CAROLINA ARBORETUM

There are so many awesome wedding venues with stunning backdrops in Brevard, North Carolina and the surrounding areas here in Western North Carolina. One that I had been looking forward to photographing at is The North Carolina Arboretum in Asheville, NC! My first visit to The North Carolina Arboretum was a day filled with beauty, wonderful vendors, and a lovely couple! I had the privilege of second shooting for the talented Julia of Amore Vita Photography.  We started our day traveling up a steep mountain road to a home with an incredible view to capture the bride and groom getting ready for their wedding day. The ladies stayed upstairs, and the men downstairs. Once everyone was ready and we arrived at the arboretum, we had just enough time for a first look between the bride and her father. These moments are so special and worth pausing for on a wedding day! After a sweet ceremony, the wedding celebration continued on a stunningly decorated grassy lawn, lit with strands of bistro lights, candle centerpieces, and the moonlit sky. The band was amazing! They had everyone on the dance floor dancing the night away. It is always a privilege to be able to help capture a wedding day for two people so in love, and even more so a pleasure when they are kind and grateful. I was thrilled to have the opportunity to work with so many talented Asheville vendors - Julia, Heartistree Studios, and Mary Bell Events

OLD EDWARDS INN WEDDING | BRITTANY AND DAN


Wow, Brittany and Dan's wedding was nothing short of spectacular! I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to photograph their beautiful, love filled day in the stunning Old Edwards Inn. A big thank you to the talented Siobhan Lorraine who invited me to second shoot for her, and to Jacquie and her team with Stunning and Brilliant Events who kept the day flowing seamlessly. There was so much beauty to take in at every turn. The backdrop of the Highlands, stunning floral art by Springvine Design,  a short mountain view filled drive to The Chapel of Sky Valley, and the love of two awesome families joining together for an epic celebration. I spent my morning with Dan and his groomsmen. Dan's anticipation to see Brittany walk down the aisle warmed my heart. Having a front row seat to witness true love on such a special day will never get old. To Brittany's surprise, she was serenaded by a bagpiper upon exiting the ceremony! He continued to play for guests and welcomed everyone to the cocktail hour, while Siobhan, Brian of Brian Bunn Films, and I spent portrait time with the newlyweds as the sun was setting. After a mouthwatering plated dinner, guests flooded the dance floor to celebrate with each song trumping the one prior by Lucas the DJ. A pom pom exit filled with cheers concluded Brittany and Dan's awesome wedding day. I wish for them that the start of their new adventure as Mr. and Mrs. is a reflection of their wedding day - a heartfelt celebration.
