Asheville Wedding Photographer | Kasey + Justin

You may remember Kasey + Justin from their lovely engagement session early last year. Ironically enough, July 16th marked their one year wedding anniversary, and I figured if I was still planning to blog their wedding photos, there was probably no better time than now.  And, let’s face it, this wedding deserves to be blogged.  :)

For many reasons Kasey + Justin’s wedding is so near and dear to my heart. Not so long ago (three years, to be exact),  my husband and I were also married at Taylor Ranch. Celebrating Kasey + Justin’s wedding was the first time I’d been back since June 2009. They are wonderful people that make an even more awesome couple. And to be honest, the relationship they have kind of reminds me of my own marriage. With all the likeness going on between us, let’s just say that I probably held my camera a little too close to my face that day.

Kasey + Justin, here’s to one year down and to so many more amazing years spent together. Once again, thank you so much for welcoming me so warmly into your lives and making me feel like family. ♥

Asheville Engagement Photography | Sarah + Dane

Meet Sarah + Dane. I love everything about them. Their personalities, how insanely photogenic they are, the way they are so effortlessly and visibly in love with one another, the fact that they’ve been together for over seven years now… and even all the way down to their choice in wedding venues. It just so happens that Chris and I almost chose Rumbling Bald as our own wedding venue about three years ago.  =)  Anywhere you turn and as far as the eye can see, is simply beauty. For so many reasons, I’m in love with that place.  =)

Here’s a peek into their engagement photos from last summer around Asheville. See what I mean about 1) being so photogenic and 2) being so visibly in love…?

Also… is it just me, or does Sarah have an incredible resemblance to Mary-Kate & Ashley, the Olson Twins?!

Sarah + Dane were married just a few weeks ago, so just to keep your whistles wet, here is a small preview of their beautiful day!  <3

HUGE congrats, Sarah + Dane! Here’s to hoping you had the time of your lives in Cancun, Mexico! <3

Asheville Weddings | Julie + Jeremy

One of the very first things Julie said to me was, “Just so you know, I’m a horrible planner. And a wedding will be no different.”

Funny, because I find this Claxton Farm wedding to be the perfect depiction of a formal event with a casual flair. It turned out to be one of my very favorite weddings of 2011.  =)

A few fun facts:

  • Jeremy was smitten by Julie the very first time he saw her. (How lucky are they?!)
  • Julie is a potter and is quite talented and creative.
  • Jeremy used to have dreadlocks!
  • Jeremy’s family is from the North. Julie’s family is from the South. Families have never met… until now.  =)
  • Their friends/wedding guests are crazy, creative, single, and wild.
  • They are both super shy and therefore cut out a lot of the small events within their wedding that involved lots of attention.  =)
  • Though they’re shy, they’re both incredibly photogenic. Check out these beautiful people below!

I cannot say enough good things about the floral work from Jessica at Aria Floral. I’m always excited when I hear my couples have chosen her for their wedding flowers – I love her artistic vision! Oh, and be sure to check out Skate Rink Jukebox, an extremely versatile, energy packed band from Charlotte, NC. Big thanks to my talented photographer friend, Kate Monroe, for helping me with this one. <3
