Leigh and Kristian were married at Claxton Farms on a beautiful July day. I have to say this couple is dear to my heart for the very reason that they know how to laugh and have a good time. Their smiles light up a room and they are so very kind to all that know them. There are so many shots of them that capture evidence of this that I had a hard time narrowing down the “moment shots” for this blog post!
Starting on the day I met them last fall while photographing their engagement photos I knew that we would get along famously. Crazy, awesome chemistry, easy going, and the feeling that you are hanging out with long time friends made me glad to have the privilege of photographing them.
The beautiful Claxton Farms! As Asheville wedding photographers this is one of our favorite venues.
Leigh and Kristian have two pit bull dogs whom are such sweeties. Of course they had to be a part of the wedding party!
Kristian and the bridal party rode a bus from their hotel to the farm. Michael hitched a ride with them to capture these fun moments.
So much laughter and fun moments. It was a journalistic photographer’s playground.
This girl and her awesome tattoos and striking beauty!
Kristian said he was rethinking the wool suit in July once he arrived but I have to say he rocked it with his feather bow tie, sunglasses, and hat. Rock on Kristian, rock on! The pictures last longer than the heat does. 🙂
The “lets not see each other but say hi” shot around the side of the door.
The bridal party was a merry crowd to say the least. We had a lot of fun with these shots.
Let the ceremony begin! These pups did SO good.
Leigh and Kristian wrote their own vows and they were so sweet and heartfelt. Mom was a mess.
Love those tattoos!
See what I mean about chemistry!? This couple has it.
We love Kimberly with Two Buds and a Blossom! She did this amazing floral.
Shout out to Short Street Cakes for the yummy assortment of desserts!
Toast time and of course it was full of laughter and smiles.
Leigh is a dancer and choreographed their first dance. It was seriously cool and very well done by the both of them!
One of my favorite “details” of this wedding. It was so perfect for couple.
Let the party begin!
Many blessings and happy times to Leigh and Kristian as they begin this new chapter in their story.
