Here’s a peek into a gorgeous wedding at the Grove Park Inn. Lauren and Jamey had a June wedding and we were so happy to be a part of their special day. This was a lively crowd and we loved getting to meet their families and spend some time shooting all of their goofy sides in our photo fun center. We even got to photograph Lauren’s brother’s special announcement. (See slider photos below!)

Lauren’s daughter and Jamey’s daughter and son filled the roles as the wedding party. It’s always a treat to have children and teenagers in the mix and there were some really special moments with them.

This is our second time shooting at the sunset terrace and we really enjoy it. The views are a perfect fit for the Asheville area and, since it faces the west, the views of the sunset are great. There are also great settings (like the golf course) and backdrops (architecture/rock walls of Grove Park Inn) for photographing a bride and groom.

Congratulations Lauren and Jamey!

I loved Lauren’s grandmother’s ring. Lauren wore it at the wedding in memory of her.

Ok, lets be honest. The Autumn for us photographers is “cra cra” (aka crazy). There is often a wedding or two every weekend and our weekdays are full of editing and other fall photo sessions. I also might add that in October 2013 we had a 9 month old, we bought a house, renovated it and moved. (My handy-man husband helped everyday with the renovation!) ALL in October. All this to say my blogging took a back seat in October of last year.

So in celebration of Throw Back Thursday I HAVE to share this amazing wedding with you! Ingrid and John were married at one of Asheville’s Best Wedding Venues – Homewood back at the beginning of October of last year. It was SUCH a beautiful and fun wedding. So, I need to share this amazing-ness with you!

Does Ingrid look familiar? Well if you watch the news you may just know why! Ingrid is an anchor for the local news station here in Asheville. I have always thought she was simply stunning and we are so thankful she booked us for her wedding!

John and Ingrid met here at the local news station. He is a Photographer/Videographer there as well. John isn’t just an ordinary videographer/photographer. He is an Emmy award winning one! In fact he just won 3 Emmy’s this past weekend! Congrats John!

So on this Thursday take a look back at this October wedding at Asheville’s local castle, Homewood.

We love a good Biltmore front lawn wedding and Gisselle and Danny gave us the opportunity to shoot there once again!

Gisselle and Danny came all the way from Miami to be married up here in the mountains of NC on Memorial Day weekend. Michael and I really loved getting to know this couple over the course of the weekend. Michael got to hang with the guys as they played golf the day before the wedding at the Grove Park Inn. He enjoyed getting to know Danny better and was struck by his friendly nature and hospitality. I got to know Gisselle through the course of planning this wedding and I instantly fell in love with her love for life! She knows how to have a good time and her wedding was no exception!

Giselle and Danny are beautiful. B-E-A-U-TIFUL! And Cuban! It was our first Cuban wedding as photographers. We absolutely loved the party they brought from Miami! The music played by the amazing DJ- Mike (from The Event Factor) had everyone hopping. He mixed a bit of Cuban music with modern music and Michael and I enjoyed getting to see some salsa moves thrown into the mix. Everyone was so happy and seemed to really have a fantastic time!

Here is my personal favorite shot of the day! SUCH happiness.
