PRETTY PLACE CEREMONY AND REEB RANCH CELEBRATION

Living so close to these beautiful wedding venues is an absolute dream! Since I moved to the mountains, I've connected with the sweetest photographer, Kaelee of Kaelee Denise Photography. I was delighted to have the opportunity to second shoot this intimate ceremony at Pretty Place Chapel followed by a rustic celebration at Oskar Blues Reeb Ranch. As soon as I walked into Pretty Place Chapel overlooking the Blue Ridge Mountains, I was overcome by a feeling of peace. I can see why it is such a popular destination wedding venue. Reeb Ranch is right down the road, and made for the perfect reception celebration. Elena of Elena Weddings & Events gave the barn at Oskar Blues a rustic elegant look with greenery hanging from the ceiling and neutral florals adorning the tables. The weather was perfect for this June wedding day. Congratulations to the bride + groom!

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!

PRETTY PLACE CHAPEL MORNING CEREMONY

My first time visiting Fred W. Symmes Chapel (also known as “Pretty Place” because of its amazing view), did not disappoint! I had the honor of second shooting this special morning ceremony with Kaelee of Kaelee Denise Photography.  When I arrived at Pretty Place, I was excited to see that Allison Taylor of WNC Weddings & Events was coordinating the wedding. Both Kaelee and Allison have been so welcoming and supportive since I moved to Brevard, NC! I just love this mountain town!

Pretty Place Chapel in Camp Greenville is worth a visit if you are close to the area. Just check the schedule on their website to make sure the chapel is available to take in the view by visiting their website. Pretty Place is a very popular place for destination weddings, and it's clear why!

INDUSTRIAL URBAN LOFT WEDDING WITH ELEGANT CHARM

One of my favorite things about second shooting a wedding is I have the opportunity to meet wonderful couples like Margo and Tim, that I may not have otherwise ever met. Second shooting for Siobhan Lorraine Photography is always a blast, and this gorgeous industrial urban loft wedding at the Cadillac Service Garage in Greensboro, North Carolina was no exception! For every piece of industrial character that makes up this weathered brick warehouse, there was a perfectly placed piece of greenery by Blooms and Thistle to compliment it. Everywhere you turn in this wedding venue gorgeous natural light filters in through huge skylights and tall front windows. The wedding party shared songs and laughs, prayers and tears, and a genuine consensus of gratitude that Margo and Tim were tying the knot. Thank you to Siobhan for inviting me to help you capture this winter wedding day!
 

CHARLOTTE WEDDING | KRIS TAKES THE FIELD

While celebrating their five year anniversary in Charleston, Field surprised Kris with a proposal in one of the most beautiful gardens she had ever seen! Family traveled from far and wide to celebrate Kris and Field tying the knot. I had the privilege of photographing their winter wedding day in Charlotte, North Carolina. The rain didn't dampen anyone's spirits as a limo chauffeured the awesome wedding party from one location to the next to continue the celebration all throughout the day.

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.

QUEENS UNIVERSITY WEDDING | LACEY + OLIVER


It was an honor to be part of Lacey and Oliver's wedding day! Their love story dates back to over ten years ago when they meet at Stoole Pigeons Sports Bar in Charlotte through a mutual friend. Oliver proposed to Lacey in Uptown Charlotte, which is also where we spent a sunrise together for their engagement portraits. It only made sense that they would be united in Charlotte and celebrate at the place that brought Oliver to the United States - Queens University.  With family traveling from Guatemala, and ten years worth of mutual friends, Lacey and Oliver's wedding day was bursting at the seams with love and gratitude.

Lacey looked stunning in her Martina Liana gown with her hair styled to perfection by Tammy and Mae with Modern Salon & Spa. Ballantyne Limo drove us to Little Sugar Creek Greenway in style for a quick wedding party portrait. It seemed only fitting that their was a soccer game happening! Soccer is the reason Oliver traveled to the United States. The soccer players happily let us interrupt their game, and pose with the soccer ball.

Congratulations, Lacey and Oliver! Your wedding day was beautiful and I am so happy for you both. A special thank you to Yessica for helping me capture the day!

SENTIMENTAL BRIDAL PORTRAIT | DAUGHTER WEARS MOTHER'S WEDDING DRESS

Nine years ago on a hot summer day, I had the privilege of watching a dear friend of mine marry her sweetheart. When she reached out to me with an idea for me to photograph her six year old daughter wearing her wedding dress, I jumped at the idea! Ironically, the day we chose to photograph Ali was almost just as hot as the wedding day was! It brought back so many special memories. Ali was the perfect little model, so excited to play dress up in her mother's wedding dress. Ali will display one of these portraits on her wedding day.

214 MARTIN STREET | JENNIFER & MICHAEL RALEIGH WEDDING

Jennifer and Michael invited me to share in their wedding day story on June 24, 2016. They were married at 214 Martin Street - a quaint venue on a cobblestone street in Raleigh, North Carolina. 

Jennifer and I met on a Skype call and she shared her romantic proposal story - Michael popped the question during a hike at Lake Tahoe! Their dog Jazzy was a part of it, as well as a photographer that Michael had arranged to be there! Hearing Jennifer's excitement about her love for Michael and the plans for their wedding day made me so excited to meet them and capture memories for them.

The wedding day was full of laughs and dancing from Jennifer and Michael's awesome wedding party and families.

My favorite parts of their day included -

Jennifer's first look with Dad
The way Michael looked at Jennifer so lovingly the entire day
The Maid on Honor and Best Man speeches - both were amazing speakers and shared stories and jokes that had everyone laughing!

Thank you Mr. and Mrs. Shelton for including me in your day! Thank you to Kiersten for capturing some great moments.

RAFFALDINI VINEYARDS & WINERY WEDDING | RONDA, NC

Alexis and Pat were married at the gorgeous Raffaldini Vineyards and Winery in Ronda, NC.  When you drive in to Ronda, it feels like you are in the mountains! The rolling green hills appear to come out of nowhere. Raffaldini Vineyards was the perfect backdrop for Alexis and Pat's wedding. Sticking with the Italian venue theme, they served a magnificent (and delicious) pizza bar during their reception. The tables were adorned with lavender and everywhere you turned the lovely smell of the lavender filled the air! Thoughtful touches like this one help make weddings extra special. Dancing under the stars and around the gorgeous centerpiece fountain on the back patio ended the lovely wedding celebration.
