Ashley and Mike had a beautiful Deerpark wedding in August on the Biltmore Estate. It was a hot day in August but they didn’t let this keep them from having a blast.
I knew Ashley would be a kindred spirit by reading the answers to our little questionnaire we send out to our clients one month prior to their big day. Her answers were full of jokes, smiley faces, and personality. I love that. Upon meeting her it was evident that she was a genuine person. We had a great time together and she welcomed Michael and I in and treated us like friends. That meant a lot.
Michael embarrassingly called the groom “Greg” while shooting some group photos with him and the groomsmen. I do not even know how he managed this considering the groom, Mike, shares the same name as him! The groomsmen were sure to give Mike and Michael a hard time about this. I will surely never let him live it down either. This is the stuff photographers are made fun of for doing and we can now say we have done it to our shame! lol.
Ashley and Mike were great fun and great people to work with. We are excited to show you these images from their big day!
In love with Flora! Their flowers are always stunning.
First look with dad. Sister is in the background.
Mom was a wreck too. It was such a beautiful moment!
Ashley gets an award for one of the best gifts we have ever seen. Since most of Mike’s friends are married she asked them all for marriage advice. She then posted their advice in a book for Mike. He was very touched and as you can see by the pictures below his groomsmen enjoyed it too.
Shout out to Joanna with Powder me Pretty for a fabulous job on Ashley’s makeup! Ashley’s friend and hair designer Brittany Saari rocked it on Ashley’s hair!
Stephanie, Nicole, and Sarah with Verge events did a fantastic job coordinating! Here is one of our favorite pictures of our good pal Nicole doing her thing!
Pastor Time Lolley of Blue Mountain Weddings seems to be pretty popular! We love to see his smiles and get his hugs when we all are at the same wedding. As always he did a fantastic job!
One of my favorite things about being a husband and wife team is that one of us can capture moments like this while the other is taking the formal group photos. All of Ashley and Mike’s close family and friends were hanging out so we are able to photograph some good candid moments of them. These always end up being some of our personal favorite moments of the day.
Shout out to Asheville’s own Gray Line Trolleys! We loved getting to ride around with the couple and capture some of these moments.
The toast by the Matrons of Honor and the Best Men brought lots of tears and laughter!
The band MVP did an excellent job of keeping the dance floor hopping!
Congrats Ashley and Mike! Many more years of laughter and joy to you!
