Great news to find out about on this dreary snowy day…one of my weddings was featured on Borrowed and Blue!  Borrowed and Blue is a fabulous resource to bride’s around the country, and they just recently launched their Asheville site.  Thank you to a ultra fabulous couple, Ellen and Brad, and to Jeremy Russell for the pics!

What a wonderful blog Smitten has, and I was so delighted to hear that they featured Lianne and Devin’s wedding back in February.  Thank you, Smitten!  I will be posting pictures from this wedding soon on my blog.  Hyer Images did a fabulous job!

Two Bright Lights Award!

I was shocked to receive an email from Two Bright Lights that I was selected as one of the winners of their Editors Choice Awards.  I will let them explain in their own words:

Editors Choice Award


The 2012 Two Bright Lights Editors’ Choice Awards is a signature program that recognizes photographers and vendors within the Two Bright Lights community whose number of published features in 2011 placed them among the top 5% of all Two Bright Lights members.

Weddings Unveiled Magazine Feature

I adore Weddings Unveiled Magazine, and I think it is done so well.  So, I was psyched to find out they were going to feature Mona and John’s simply romantic wedding in their magazine!  Thank you, Weddings Unveiled!  I love the timeless look of Abigail Seymour‘s pictures, and I was thrilled that her work is highlighted in this article.  Mona and John were the sweetest, and I enjoyed every single second I got to spend planning their special day at Claxton Farm. I was also delighted that The Darling Bee was featured in this article, as we provided many items to give their wedding that special touch!





Carolina Bride High Country Magazine Feature!

I was uber thrilled to hear that Lauren and Chad’s wedding made the cover of Carolina Bride High Country Magazine!  Thank you to Woodward + Rick for taking such fantastic pictures that they just had to publish this!  Plus, Lauren and Chad are like models themselves, so they made every picture fabulous!  🙂  Thank you, Carolina Bride for featuring this wedding at The Biltmore Estate.  You can see my blog post about this wedding here, and Woodward + Rick’s blog post here.

Featured in The Washington Post!

I was absolutely stunned when I get an email from The Washington Post saying that they want to not only interview me for their blog, but also post several pictures that they had spotted on my website.  Wow!  What a delight it was to chat with Cara Kelly (writer) about timing advice for brides just getting engaged.  Very very honored to be interviewed.  Thank you, Washington Post!  Here is the article:

And here are pictures they chose for their gallery (#’s: 5, 6, 7, 10, 11, 19, 20, 21, 34, 35, 36, 37).
