Lindsey and Zeke were married in Highlands, NC at the Piermont Cottage at Old Edwards Inn. This was our first wedding at Old Edwards and we absolutely loved Piermont cottage. And if you add on a beautiful, sweet couple, glorious weather, stunning flowers and a slamming bagpiper then you can pretty much bet we would love this wedding!

We also have to give a shout out to Lindsey and Zeke and their sweet family. Everyone was so kind and thoughtful to us. They made us one of the family for the day. Also, I was about 8 months pregnant with Elliot and Michael had one of the worst colds of his life. Even though he worked at keeping it a secret all the doctors in the family caught on and were compassionate towards him.

I must say I was pretty proud. We always want to give 100% no matter how we feel at a wedding and I believe we were truly able to with the help of some adrenaline and our awesome friend Andrew May. He came along with us to Highlands and help us lug around gear, hold lighting equipment, and keep us hydrated. Thanks again Andrew!

Lindsey and Zeke, you are beautiful. Thanks for inviting us to share in your awesome day. We pray years of joy and happiness shared by that awesome family of yours.

We love this “Farm to Table” themed Grove Park Inn wedding. (I don’t know if she intentionally wanted that to be the theme but that is what I am calling it!) 🙂

I loved Abby’s unique beauty. Her veil kind of rocked too! Scott kept us laughing through the day. They were simply awesome and a joy to be with!

He proposed 20 years ago. She said “yes” but they never made it to the altar. They went on to live separate lives. He took her ring and buried it on the mountain top where he proposed. Two years ago they reconnected and quickly knew it was meant to be and it was time. He went and dug up the ring.

Heather had previously scheduled a couples session with me at Biltmore Estate. Little did she know that Jeremy called me two weeks prior to the shoot. He wanted me to show up early and capture the proposal. We schemed and plotted the specific spot and time. It might have helped that neither one of them had ever laid eyes on me. She had NO clue I was there and thus the real, intimate, emotional moments. Just her and her guy in one of the biggest moments of their life.

I guess they had never lost that genuine love for each other. It was truly meant to be.

Here are a few of my favorite moments with this amazing couple.
