Ashley and Mike’s Deerpark Wedding at the Biltmore Estate!

Ashley and Mike had a beautiful Deerpark wedding in August on the Biltmore Estate. It was a hot day in August but they didn’t let this keep them from having a blast.

I knew Ashley would be a kindred spirit by reading the answers to our little questionnaire we send out to our clients one month prior to their big day. Her answers were full of jokes, smiley faces, and personality. I love that. Upon meeting her it was evident that she was a genuine person. We had a great time together and she welcomed Michael and I in and treated us like friends. That meant a lot.

Michael embarrassingly called the groom “Greg” while shooting some group photos with him and the groomsmen. I do not even know how he managed this considering the groom, Mike, shares the same name as him! The groomsmen were sure to give Mike and Michael a hard time about this. I will surely never let him live it down either. This is the stuff photographers are made fun of for doing and we can now say we have done it to our shame! lol.

Ashley and Mike were great fun and great people to work with. We are excited to show you these images from their big day!

Ashley gets an award for one of the best gifts we have ever seen. Since most of Mike’s friends are married she asked them all for marriage advice. She then posted their advice in a book for Mike. He was very touched and as you can see by the pictures below his groomsmen enjoyed it too.

Pastor Time Lolley of Blue Mountain Weddings seems to be pretty popular! We love to see his smiles and get his hugs when we all are at the same wedding. As always he did a fantastic job!

One of my favorite things about being a husband and wife team is that one of us can capture moments like this while the other is taking the formal group photos. All of Ashley and Mike’s close family and friends were hanging out so we are able to photograph some good candid moments of them. These always end up being some of our personal favorite moments of the day.
