As Asheville wedding photographers we love that we have 4 seasons here in the mountains of North Carolina and South Carolina. Here is why.

Lauren and Josh were married at Pretty Place Chapel on a cloudy but beautiful Autumn day. Hands down this was the best color of the year for us. It was simply stunning.

Now, lets back up a bit to the beginning of this gorgeous wedding! Here are a few of our favorite getting ready moments.

Lauren’s sweet puppy loved being in the middle of everything as you can see!

Lots of tears to be shared! This is the moment when Lauren’s mom gave her the handkerchief with her own handwriting embroidered onto it.

Josh’s mother Janet gave Lauren this sapphire ring to wear for the day. Josh remembers his mom wearing it a lot while growing up. I love that.

First look with dad brought out even MORE tears all around!

We LOVED Josh’s bowtie! It was a handcrafted feather bowtie made by a charleston company called Brackish.

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!
