I love it when a bride feels like a princess on her wedding day. Emily was like a little girl in a pretty twirling dress on her big day and she twirled A LOT. It reminded me of when I was a little girl and also, a bride. You are meant to feel beautiful on your wedding day. And BOY, was she beautiful!

Our day started at the Biltmore Forest Country Club. The girls and guys got ready there and Emily and Colton had their first look. Then we rode the trolley to The Cathedral of All Souls in Biltmore Village for the ceremony. It was our second time shooting there and I have to say that church is gorgeous!! After some formal photos we were back on the trolley for champagne (Wait until you see those photos!!) and then back to the Country Club for the reception!

Here is a look back on Emily and Colton’s adventurous, classy, big day.

For Caitlin’s birthday today, I thought I might give her a peek at some of our favorites of her wedding photos! Happy Birthday Caitlin!

We met Caitlin and Adam in Los Barriles, Mexico almost 4 years ago. They were attending Steelie and Sam’s wedding along with some of Adam’s family. We all had a blast together and we are so thankful Caitlin and Adam reached out to us to photograph their big day last month. It was like a big reunion for us. A lot of the same people from that trip were at the wedding and it was good to get some hugs from some familiar faces.

Caitlin and Adam were just dating when we met them in 2011 but we all had that feeling that they were going to end up together. Apparently Caitlin and Adam have known each other since they were kids! There was a family photo up at the reception of both Adam and Caitlin’s families when they both were very young. You can tell they share a close relationship and might I add that they are beautiful together!

This was our first wedding at the NC Arboretum. It was lovely and we were thankful the rain held off for Caitlin and Adam to have an outdoor ceremony there. Their reception was held at the Crest Pavilion with all it’s twinkle lights and candle lit ambiance.

Shout out to these wedding professionals that helped this day turn out spectacular!

  • janie banks - The beauty of this day took my breath away!

Sarah and Doug’s wedding was our first wedding up at Diana at Biltmore Estate. We have shot at just about everywhere other venue at the Biltmore Estate but we finally got to photograph a ceremony here last month. The view is, in my opinion, the best at Biltmore and it was unbelievable. The threat of rain chased us under a tent during the ceremony but we were still able to photograph all the family photos with the backdrop of the house and mountains.

We were able to work with one of our favorites planners, Tara Jordan, with Weddings with Tara, to pull off such an amazing evening. Tara and her crew never disappoints and we always know the details and organization will be spectacular.

Sarah and Doug were our “Ken and Barbie,” (as titled by Tara;)) They are beautiful!! Sarah could not stop laughing and Doug couldn’t stop looking at her. I caught him often looking at her and kissing her on the temple. It was precious.

Here Sarah and Doug are taking it all in.

That view!!!

Part of the tent at Diana is sectioned off for Cocktail hour. It is complete with couches, chandeliers and, of course, a bar!

The main part of the tent was closed off until dinner. We snuck in to grab a few photos of the spectacular-ness.

The Bloom Room of Asheville is responsible for this magic! I just love their floral.
Biltmore_Wedding_Photographer_0007

One of the things I have been doing lately is taking photos of details during the day and then also at night. As you can see there is a whole different feel to each photo. I can’t tell which one I like better! So I give our clients both.:)

A chocolate grooms cake! Biltmore never disappoints when it comes to their cakes.

Biltmore also caters their weddings. Look at this yumminess!

But lets back up to the beginning of the day. The gals got ready at the Inn at Biltmore. Even though there were thunderstorms circling us it made for some amazing clouds!

Wendy with Blush Asheville did a fantastic job on Sarah’s makeup. Barbie never looked so good.:)

I love the way a mother looks at her daughter right after she puts on her wedding dress. This look is priceless and I love capturing it!
Biltmore_Wedding_Photographer_0015

Well here is something we haven’t seen in over 100 weddings! I have never seen the father of the bride put his daughters shoes on her. This. Was. Beautiful.

Mom helped with the garter. It is beautiful to see parents serving their daughters on the big day. These are the moments I adore.
