We love that Alissa and Joseph got married during the golden hour. Their Omni Grove Park Inn Wedding was stunning and the sunlight beaming through during the ceremony made the photos dreamy and romantic!
The Mountain View Terrace at the Grove Park Inn has a gorgeous view of the Blue Ridge Mountains and is an amazing place for a wedding.
Let’s back up to the beginning of the day. This ceremony floral was designed by the amazing Flora.
As you can tell, we love our mountains, and love using them in our props. 🙂
Makeup and hair provided by the fabulous Blush Asheville.
Alissa mad a simply drop dead gorgeous bride.
And that Joe was super dashing, especially in a suit!
It’s all in the details.
A spontaneous first look with the Mother of the Bride. This was not planned and we never get first looks with moms. This was a beautiful moment.
Now it is time for the first look with dad.
Lots of tears and sweet moments between this daughter and her parents.
Alissa wrote a letter to her parents to have them read out loud with her. You can really tell that Alissa has a special relationship with her parents.
Onward to the first look with the main man, Joseph.
Capturing the wedding day means capturing everything that happens. Even the fact that Joseph got stung by a bee on the hand RIGHT before first look! This is him showing Alissa the sting. I know it hurt but it did bring a good laugh for the two of them!
Da’ gals and da’ fellas and that view!
He was the coolest and kindest. We loved Joseph!
She says she feels awkward when having her photo made. But, oh my! This gal is rocking that veil. Simply stunning.
Let the ceremony begin!
We had a bit of a breeze during the ceremony which actually made the weather feel quiet nice. However, that veil did its own thing. (We kind of dug that!)
When grown men cry… we love that. (We may have had a tear in our eye too!)
These two and their chemistry…
Onward to the reception.
Cheers to whoever made them laugh this much. We love this moment!
That sunset was magnificent!
Even the cake had a view of it.
First dance with the best band ever! The Royal Suits.
Welcome by the parents of the bride.
Toast and cake time!
We love going back and capturing night time details if we can!
This party was so much fun. When there is a good band you can’t help but have a great time! Alissa and Joseph danced the night away together! Congrats Joseph and Alissa! We wish you all the best in the world!
