"Spending an entire week in a house at the beach with friends and family and ending it with a perfect wedding was a dream come true for both of us. Because we opted for a small DIY wedding, we felt everything was so intimate. We could focus on each other and our commitment."
We took a tour of a wedding venue called Providence Cotton Mill in Maiden, NC. The venue is under new ownership and these guys have some exciting things in store for this very unique wedding venue. We're doing a styled shoot at this location in the Spring, and it's going to be epic! Stay tuned for more behind the scenes from the shoot!
"...We Met in Yellowstone National Park on a Photography Workshop in late February 2014. We captured much more than stunning photographs. We fell in love. I kissed her in the snow in Bozeman, Montana a week later..."
It's our 1st wedding of 2017! Here are some behind the scenes of some of what goes into prepping for the wedding day, getting details, shots of the ceremony, bride and groom, plus a few of the reception!
Brittany was such a lovely bride! We loved getting to spend extra time with her on her bridal session.
The session took place at Westglow Resort & Spa up in Blowing Rock, NC. It was the perfect place for Brittany's session...classic and refined. Here are some highlights from our session with Brittany...
Troy + Amy celebrated their wedding day at Overlook Barn, a beautiful spot in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The day was easygoing, heartwarming and real, filled with celebration, good cheer and good music. It was a taste of North Carolina mixed with Troy's Australian culture.
We loved getting to know Troy + Amy! It started with the engagement session, which was an adventure and so much fun. Then we got to hang out with them again on the big day! :) Here are some highlights from their engagement session that took place at Rough Ridge, which is right off the Blue Ridge Parkway...
Tell us about a few of your most memorable wedding day memories?
“The amazing food! Hiking through the trees in heels and almost falling down the hill. The most perfect fall day. Our officiant laughing hysterically during the ceremony when reading our quirky messages to each other. Sitting around the fire at the end of the night enjoying each other and our family.”
First snowfall of the year AND the first snow in our new home! Plus it's Blue's 1st snow (at least with us) and we're having a blast adventuring around and playing in the snow. Fun times! Here's a vlog of our day...
Agh! One of our weddings (actually, a few images from several weddings all throughout the guide, be sure to check out each page for some highlights from other weddings as well!) was featured in the latest issue of High South Weddings Magazine!
We're so excited and honored to have TWO weddings featured in the High Country Wedding Guide 2017 Issue! Here's a link where you can view the magazine, and also pick up a copy, on stands soon in the High Country!
We adopted a dog from the local animal shelter! We've been keeping an eye out for one like him for a while now, waiting for the right time and a friend of ours told us about him and it was the right time!
His name is "Blue" and he's a beautiful and sweet Blue Heeler. Here's a little vlog of the day we adopted him and the last few days of him getting adjusted to our family. To be continued! :)
Some days it's hard to concentrate, especially when things pile up on the to-do list. Give me one thing at a time - I can handle it, but when things start to pile up, I don't like dealing with it :) Focus can be a challenge sometimes. Thank goodness for my little office assistants. LOL Here's my attempt at being productive today :) … a day in the office!
Nikki + Ryan said their vows in late summertime at River Run Farm in Valle Crucis, NC. They had a beautiful outdoor ceremony along the banks of the Watauga River. The reception was in the barn, with live bluegrass music and a vintage-bohemian feel.
eeeeekk!! While we have had features in magazines, this is a very first to have been a contributor and had a mini bio on us included in the magazine! Wow, so excited and honored. How did we get here?:)
Tis the season for engagements! Because of that we are getting caught up on the blog, starting with engagement sessions, and we are so excited to share this lovely "Blue Ridge Parkway Tour" engagement session that we did with Brittany + Brian! Here are some highlights...
Fall wedding season has been a little crazy, not gonna lie! We tried to capture some of the highlights (I'll admit we got a little slack and didn't capture as much as we hoped) from our super intense couple of weeks during the month of October! Prepare yourself, it's very random! Also threw in there some clips from our trip to Charlotte to see Switchfoot. Check it out!
