Chelsea and Adam were married on a beautiful sunny day this Autumn. And if you live around here you know how rare that has been this fall. As Asheville wedding photographers it is a pleasure to get to photograph at the NC Arboretum! We love the outdoor space there and the sunlight at Chelsea and Adam’s wedding was lovely.

Chelsea and Adam were amazing to work with. We bonded on our trolley ride to the Century Room at Pack’s Tavern. They had a jolly bridal party and we all got along famously.

I especially loved the details and decor at their reception! I had never seen so many things that were actually made by the bride and groom. Adam made the cake stands and the wall decor that hung over the cake. Ladders were hung from the celing to hang the candle bubbles over the main farm table. One of my favorite details was the scratch off tickets the couple gave to all their guest as favors! Chelsea said it was a family tradition. So unique!!

Many blessings to this amazing couple as they journey on.

Maya and Alex’s wedding provided us with a great first time opportunity we had been wanting for a while…photographing an Indian wedding. It was such a unique experience and, of course, a play ground for photography. Such beautiful people adorned in vivid colors! Compared to traditional western weddings, the ceremony has many different traditions and a lot of participation by family and friends. Interestingly enough, this was their second wedding to each other. Alex is Serbian and they had previously had a ceremony in Serbia to celebrate their union with Serbian traditions. So cool!

Maya and Alex (and their families) were tremendously hospitable to us. Alex and I had a great time talking about capitalism and the great opportunities for foreigners in the US and he also taught me a few things about Serbian culture. Maya had Meriah photograph her Mehndi party the evening before their wedding day. She invited Ezra and I to attend and eat boat loads of Indian food. It was a great peek into other Indian traditions and we were glad to be their guests. Today marks the one year anniversary of their Indian Wedding. Congratulations and many blessings to Alex and Maya!

This was also our first wedding with Mary with Mary Bell Events. We enjoyed getting to work with her and she did an amazing job!

A year ago yesterday we had a freak winter storm hit the mountains of WNC. It snowed all day at the Big House in Waynesville. And Rachel cried. She thought she would have to cancel her wedding. Luckily the next day (a year ago today) the sun came out and they got to work at blowing the snow off the ceremony and reception site.

As Asheville wedding photographers we don’t often get the chance to shoot weddings with snow! Needless to say we were excited and once Rachel realized her wedding would indeed NOT be canceled she was excited, and relieved! We had a beautiful landscape of fall color and snow! This is something you don’t get to see often here in WNC.

Congrats on one year of marriage Rachel and Raulie! Thanks again for allowing Michael and I to be a part of your big day and for making us feel like part of the family.
