This blog is a bit late but it since it took me 10 billion years I waited until we were a bit caught up! As Asheville wedding photographers had SUCH an amazing and full to the brim 2016. Michael and I witnessed 38 “I do’s” last year ranging from elopements to large weddings. We feel so blessed to have been given the opportunity to share in so many people’s lives.

Here are our favorite 10 photos from each. (Let me tell you, it was SO tough to narrow them down to 10! All of these weddings were beautiful and packed with so many amazing moments!)

Kathryn and Brian’s Asheville wedding at The Venue was our first wedding of the year; on New Year’s Day! We have known Kathryn and her family for years and it was a joy to celebrate the New Year with them. They laughed so, so much at this wedding!

Roberta and Jason had a small Waynesville wedding at Broyhill Baptist Home. Roberta is a great friend to the Mozingos. She called me the Saturday prior and told me she was getting hitched on Thursday. This girl is crazy but they absolutely pulled it off in 4 days!

Kathy and Dave had an awesome July wedding at Burntshirt Vineyard in Hendersonville. This was our first wedding at this vineyard and we loved it. (We don’t often get to shoot in vineyards.) Kathy and Dave had such a great time on their wedding day. We were sad to hear that only 6 weeks after this wedding Dave lost his mother. The moments of her with Dave at this wedding mean so much more now and are absolutely precious. Check out more from their beautiful wedding here… Burntshirt Vineyard Wedding.

While on vacation to Panama City Beach we were out one evening shooting photos with our friends (whom we vacation with). We noticed a wedding about to start down further on the beach when a guy came up to us. He told us that the photographer didn’t show up for the wedding and asked us to photograph it. We hesitated, I mean, we were on vacation! However, we decided to a “do unto others…” move and captured their short ceremony. It started 10 minutes after we were asked! Shew! God blessed this day with a GLORIOUS sunset, one of the best beach sunsets I have ever seen. Congrats Anita and Mike!

Angie and Charles eloped to the Inn on Biltmore Estate in August. Ya’ll, I have never seen it downpour at a wedding like it did while we were trying to photograph this couple after their ceremony. Oh my! However, Angie and Charles were such good sports about it. We had an absolute blast hanging out with them and while we “waited it out” Angie decided she wanted “rain shots” anyway. And may I just say her hair and makeup held up fabulously?! So beautiful.

We loved all the little details of their wedding that made it so special. Alex’s dog, Henry, even made an appearance. But what stood out to me was how excited Chris was to marry his Alex.

We had a lot of weddings at the Crest back in the Fall. We made it our goal to photograph each Crest wedding uniquely since each of our couples were uniquely different! Jess and Tyler were married the first weekend in November at Crest. We were so happy to see there was still color on the trees! The parent dancing moments were some of my favorites from this wedding as well as the toast shots! Check out more of this gorgeous day with this sweet couple here… Crest Wedding Photographer

Jennifer and Morgan were married at the Champagne cellar at Biltmore in December. Their small wedding was perfect for the intimacy of the champagne cellar. Morgan may win “funniest groom of the year” award as he had us in stitches while we were traveling around the estate taking photos. This also may be my favorite “father daughter dance” photo ever. Dad even wiped away her tears! See that photo and more up on this blog post… Champagne cellar wedding at Biltmore

Bridgette and Terry had a smal Christmas wedding at the Inn at Biltmore. Biltmore at Christmas is STUNNING and they go all out. December sunsets may also be the best all year. SERIOUSLY this was one for the books. And how gorgeous is that Christmas bouquet? The crazy thing about that is that Bridgette and Terry both made it and have NEVER made a bouquet before. They said they had the best time making it together!

What a year! We hope you have enjoyed looking back on our year as much as we enjoyed getting to be a part of it. We seriously have the best clients ever. Onward to 2017!

Whitney and Sam were married at Diana, one of our favorite spots on the Biltmore Estate! The fall color was peak and the sun was out to keep us warm!

This was our first event with the fabulous planner, Kiersa Holy. We were so excited to FINALLY get to hang out with her and see her creativity come alive. We have known her for some time and met because we are both a part of StudioWed.

Whitney said she wanted her theme to be “Downton Abbey meets Gatsby.” I would say they nailed it.

One of my personal favorite details from the big day was this aisle!! Shout out to Blossoms of Biltmore Park for their fantastic floral!

Whitney’s dad has passed away. Whitney wanted to include him in on her wedding day so she had her bouquet wrapped in his neck tie. Her mom also surprised her by pinning a hand written note in her dress from her dad. I may have teared up when I saw that one. I love how they included him in their day.

The day after their wedding we did a “Rock the Frock” around the property. This was a chance for Whitney and Sam to get dressed back up in their wedding attire and take advantage of more photography. The Biltmore property is so massive that it is almost impossible capture all the cool locations in one day.

Lisa and Will had a lovely January Asheville wedding. They were married at Trinity Episcopal Church and had their reception at Biltmore Forest Country Club.
I had the pleasure of photographing their engagement session back in the fall and found out at that time what a great couple they are; easy going and so happy together!

More from us later but here is a bit from Lisa and Will!

A bit about Lisa
I have been a cardiology ICU nurse for over 20 years. I love the outdoors, going out to dinner, travel and spending time with my three dogs. I love all animals! In my line of work I don’t get a chance to be “fancy” often so when I get the chance I LOVE to dress up and be “fancy”.

A bit about Will
Will has been a cardiologist in Asheville for 18 years. He loves all outdoor sports and also loves travel, going out to dinner and adventure. He has two grown daughters who have graduated from college and started their own careers. They were both bridesmaids in our wedding.

How did you meet?
Long story made short; we worked together and were friends for many years. When both our circumstances changed we found ourselves spending time together outside of work then we were inseparable.

Describe your first date?
We had everything we both loved from the beginning. We went for a hike with a gourmet picnic, a bottle of wine, and Lisa’s dogs.

How long have you been together?
Hmmmm….. depends on who you ask. 🙂

What are your favorite hobbies and activities to do as a couple?
Cook together, eating “al fresco” on our back patio, going out to dinner, hiking with our dogs, skiing, and traveling.

Who popped the question and HOW?
Will popped the question. Lisa and I custom designed a ring using a beautiful solitaire diamond and diamonds from Lisa’s grandmother’s jewelry. The design process took a lot longer than anticipated and it was not clear when it would be finished. Will had planned an elaborate proposal but when the ring was finished and he saw how beautiful it was he could not wait another day and proposed that rainy night on our back patio where we had already had so many wonderful dinners and memories.

Why did you pick Trinity Episcopal Church and Biltmore Forest Country Club?
Will is a life long Episcopalian and wanted to be married in the church. He attended Trinity Episcopal and was a member at Biltmore Forest Country Club.

What adjective best describes your spouse on your wedding day?
Will: Lisa was radiant, beautiful, and glamorous.
Lisa: Will was calm, handsome, and happy.

What tangible detail of your wedding day did you love the most?
Will: Our wedding rings which were both engraved with “No doubt, no fear, you and me forever” inside each band.
Lisa: My grandmothers diamond watch. She was so special to me and it served as my “something borrowed” since it was borrowed from my mother.

How many guests attended the wedding?
Approximately 120.

What did you and your guests eat at the reception?
Poached salmon and prime rib.

What was the flavor of your wedding cake?
Alternating tiers of carrot cake and vanilla cake with raspberry filing.

What is the one of the funniest things that happened on your wedding day?
Lisa: When my dress was torn while we were making photos outside and my amazing wedding photographer whipped out a sewing kit and mended the dress on the spot (with perfect results) and saved the day.
Will: When the groom and groomsmen skirted the no alcohol rule at Trinity Episcopal by walking up to the The Blackbird and relaxing with a beer prior to the ceremony.

What was your first dance song and why did you pick it?
“A Thousand Years” by Christina Perri. Lisa loves that song and we feel like our love will last a thousand years.

What stood out to you the most when you think of your wedding?
All of our family and friends in one place, all together at the same time. It was the first time that both of our families had met face to face and it went beautifully as if they had known each other for years.

What is on your “bucket list” to do together as a married couple?
To stay healthy, grow our love to our golden years, travel the world and have as many adventures together as possible.

We loved the detail in Lisa’s dress. She picked out a stunning dress for her winter wedding. I thought the sleeve looked like icicles! 🙂

We had to stay in the back during the ceremony due to the church rules…. so thankful that Michael was able to capture this beautiful moment with Will wiping away a tear as he saw his bride walking down the aisle.
