Asheville Farm Wedding | Ronna + Jason

Ronna and Jason. Totally precious.

Much to the surprise of Ronna’s 12 year old self, Ronna and Jason are a military couple. After graduation, Jason felt the calling of his civic duty and decided to join the Navy. And Ronna, already head-over-heels for Jason, was gracious, understanding, and in full support of his decision.

Oh, sweet Ronna. I think her wedding date changed three times only three short months before her wedding.  I remember her saying, “I tend to call myself a chill A-type.  I get my stuff done, but I don’t freak out if it doesn’t go according to plan.” Thank goodness for her go-with-the-flow personality  :)

We met only days before the wedding and immediately hit it off. Mostly, because we all have a similar sense of humor – we’re all upfront and honest and enjoy a little playful banter  ;)

On July 3, 2011 at the beautiful Claxton Farm in Weaverville, NC, Ronna + Jason finally tied the knot!

Fun fact: This gorgeous veil is a family heirloom and was also worn by Ronna’s sister at her wedding this past October  :)

Asheville Weddings | Valerie + Daniel

Hands down, one of my favorite parts of my job is being able to constantly meet new people. I’ve always liked to consider myself to be a pretty good ‘people reader’. But with Valerie, there’s no question. Valerie is one of those people where you can tell within the first ten seconds of meeting her that she’s absolutely genuine. Beautiful inside and out. She has a smile that is completely contagious and never seems to leave her face. And Daniel? Let’s just say he’s her perfect complement  :) Valerie and Daniel, thank you so much for including me as a part of your wedding day. You made me feel so warm and comfortable around you, as if I were simply another family member there to witness the day  :)

Here are a few images from Valerie’s bridal session…
