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!

Emiley and Dylan had a Jeter Mountain Farm Wedding back in September. This was our first wedding at Jeter and we were impressed by the beauty of this venue.
I, Meriah, love this family so much. I grew up going to the same church as Emiley’s parents, Heather and Byron, and Emiley’s grandparents, Diane and Bobby. Diane still kisses me on the cheek every time I see her. And Heather and Byron’s wedding was the second wedding I attended as a kid.
Michael and I were so excited to get to share in this special day. Emiley was a stunning bride and Dylan was a easy going, handsome groom.
The “getting ready” portion of the day with the gals was so so much fun.
Flawless did an incredible job on Emiley’s makeup!
SO many beautiful moments between these two.
Mrs. Betty has been doing bridal hair for this family for years!
First look with the bridesmaids!
First look with Dylan
First look with Dad.
These moments with Emiley and her family are some of my favorites.
These two have great smiles…
And amazing Vogue and GQ looks as well!
Last look in the mirror before walking the aisle with dad.
I know Byron, we were all a bit teary eyed!
Mr. and Mrs. Powell!
Onward to the reception!
These salt and pepper shakers belonged to Emiley’s Granny and Papaw. They had a huge collection from their lives together.
Dance with dad.
Dancing with mom.
The anniversary dance was a lot of fun. Emiley’s grandparents, Bobby and Diane had been married the longest. Fifty years and one week!
Congrats Emiley and Dylan!! Thank you so much for allowing us to share in your amazing day.
Shout out to these awesome people that made this day happen!

Michael and I booked this wedding at Reflections at the Pond, literally 2 weeks before it came to pass. Jared is in the Army and wasn’t sure he was going to receive time off to get hitched. I am shocked at how well everything came together and this day was perfect, simply perfect. Abigail’s mom, Catherine helped out so so much and did most of the planning for Abigail and Jared.
Catherine, you nailed it.
Abigail and Jared were such a sweet couple. There is something so refreshing about young love and it gave us “all the feels”
This was our first wedding at Reflections at the Pond and it was gorgeous!
Abigail was such a beautiful bride. Sorry (not sorry) for all the bridal portraits.
Shout out to Serenity and Scott for the gorgeous bridal makeup!
First look with Abigail’s dad made us all tear up.
First look with Jared.
Those gals were a merry bunch indeed!
Fun shots with the gals!
Fun shots with the fellas! (It may or may not have been sprinkling rain!)
Finally, the sun!
This couple can rock the Vogue/GQ look!
This was one of our favorite moments of the day. A totally un-staged candid moment of Jared tying Abigail’s shoe!
Off to Riverside Baptist Church to get hitched!
Candid moments while waiting for the ceremony to start.
One of the most powerful moments of the ceremony. Abigail and Jared’s family prayed over them and blessed them. It was beautiful.
Congrats Abigail and Jared!!
This bridal party was a lot of fun!
Onward to Reflections of the Pond for the reception!
Introductions into the first dance. Love that they both cracked up during the first dance!
In over 200 weddings this is the best we’ve seen yet when it comes to decorating a car!
