Jessie and Ryan invited us to capture their amazing wedding at the Country Club of Asheville and what a gorgeous wedding it was! From the moment I met Jessie and Ryan at their engagement session I knew I would love getting to be a part of their wedding. They are such a joy to be around and you can tell they are well loved by their friends and family.
This was our first wedding at the Country Club of Asheville and we enjoyed getting to photograph this venue so much. It has some amazing views of the mountains and the staff were so kind to us.
Getting ready moments with Jessie, her sister, her mom, and her bridesmaids.
The beautiful Jessie and that gorgeous smile.
First look with Dad.
All of the groomsmen individually handed Ryan a handkerchief after they walked up the aisle. It brought a lot of laughs.
This little guy rocked his ring bearing duties.
Ryan’s reaction to his bride was awesome.
Ryan’s brother officiated and had us all laughing.
There were a few tears as well.
The toast may have been a bit more of a roast! 🙂
I saw Ryan kiss Jessie’s hand 3 times. It was so sweet.
Jessie and Ryan allowed us to take them back out for some photos at sunset.
We took a golf cart ride up to the 15th hole where we photographed with downtown Asheville in the background.
Congrats Jessie and Ryan!! Thanks for allowing us to celebrate with you guys.

Patty and Pep had a gorgeous Crest Center wedding in June. The day was warm with the lilies in full bloom and the bride and groom were stunning!
We had not officially met Patty or Pep until their wedding day. I was automatically struck by their laid back nature and Patty’s smile. They are such a classy couple and had great chemistry together.
More from us as we reveal some of our favorite photos to tell this story.
We loved that Crest Center and Pavilion were in full summer time bloom!
Shout out to Shady Grove for the amazing floral!
Patty’s dress was super classy and I especially loved the back of it!
The first look with the bridesmaids was especially fun!
What a beautiful relationship Patty had with her parents. We just love this moment of them together.
Reading his letter.

Caitlin and Ian had a stunning Pretty Place wedding ceremony and a super fun reception at Key Falls Inn!
At this weddingIt occurred to me that as a wedding photographer I get to ride around in limos more than I would ever get to, ha ha! Since Caitlin and Ian’s Ceremony and Reception location were 45 minutes apart this ride broke the record for me.
This wedding… you guys!! It was so sweet. “Sweet?” You say? Yes!! Ian was so so eager to marry his bride Caitlin. They have been together since middle school ya’ll! And they were both so very excited to be finally getting married.

And last but not least shout out to Caitlin’s mom Kathleen for all her hard work in helping Caitlin plan her big day!
Artwork on these invitations were done by Caitlin’s sister Anna! They were super stunning.
Brittney and Haley from Flawless did an amazing job on Caitlin’s makeup and hair!
Caitlin and her mom have such a close relationship. I loved how much Kathleen helped Caitlin on her wedding day.
Caitlin wrote letters to her parents.
Some fun moments before ceremony at the Key Falls Inn waterfall!
These two!! So beautiful and dapper!
Limos and drinks.
The ceremony was held at Pretty Place (Symms Chapel) The views simply take your breath away.
Matthew Dickerson played the hammer dulcimer and he was simply fantastic! He played the same song that was played at my parent’s wedding over 40 years ago. (Annie’s Song by John Denver.) My heart melted.
Father of the bride.
Her smile though… its soooo contagious!
SO many sweet moments at this wedding.
These are some of my favorite shots… Michael hangs out and captures candids of friends and family waiting to have their photos taken while Meriah is taking the family photos.
A pretty bride, a pretty place.
Onward to the reception at Key Falls Inn! That road down from Pretty Place is quiet curvy… Caitlin may or may not have ended up in the floor at one point. 🙂
Dancing and hanging out by the falls.
Now to do the choreographed first dance for everyone!
Congrats Caitlin and Ian! Thanks for being awesome and so very cool to be around and work with!
