Melissa + Aaron’s Wedding Part II

On to the GLORIOUS reception at the Cliffs at Mountain Park.  I really can’t describe how much fun it was to transform this golf cart barn into a grand, ethereal, romantic, enchanted and organic space.  My favorite moment was when we had Melissa and Aaron plus their parents walk into the space for the first time before the guests were invited in.  To see their faces made every second of this journey so worth it. Please make sure you go back to Part I to see all the vendors that made their dreams come true!

Melissa + Aaron’s Wedding Part I

This was simply an EPIC weekend that I will never forget.

There are days where I just sit back and ask myself…is this really my job?  People like Melissa, Aaron and their parents are the reason I love what I do.  They are just so real, so full of joy, and always so friendly and warm.  What I loved about working with them, is that they completely trusted me and our great team of vendors to make their dreams a reality.  When Melissa called me and explained that she wanted to turn a golf cart barn into a magical place for a wedding reception, I was more than up for the challenge.  Melissa and Aaron’s wedding was nothing short of spectacular, and we had SUCH a blast putting this one together.  Melissa gave us the type of feel and colors she would like to use, and then let us PLAY!  So fun!  Seriously, I love them, and I was completely honored that I was able to work with them on such a special weekend in their lives.  I must say, I miss them!  Their 1-year anniversary was yesterday, and I am just thrilled for them.  This year has flown by.  I actually can’t believe I am JUST now sharing this with you all.

First I will show you the ceremony captured by the lovely Cheyenne Schultz.  She and her husband were the perfect match for Melissa and Aaron, and the pictures reflect the beauty of their relationship and the wedding day.  Here is the ROCK STAR team of vendors:

Rachael + Kevin

Throwing it back again to 2015, when Rachael and Kevin were married on a perfect day at Claxton Farm.  Just thinking about this couple, and Rachael’s mom brings a warmness to my heart.   The fun they had at this wedding with their friends and family was simply contagious.  I love everything about Claxton….the views, the fields, Chocolate Chip (their llama), the goats and cows.   You can’t help but be relaxed when you step on to the property, as it just brings you to a place that feels like home.   I think you will see that when looking through these beautiful pictures by Jill with Realities Photography.

Cailtin and Sean…Part I

You know how when you meet someone, you instantly feel like you are part of their family?  Well, this is what happened when I met Caitlin, her parents, Sean and his mom.  Such incredible people…each one of them.  Over a year has passed since their wedding, but I was able to see them all again when Caitlin’s parents (Gus and Maria) renewed their vows this past summer.  Check them out…they are the sweetest…

Caitlin and Sean’s wedding ceremony took place at the Cliffs Glassy Chapel.  This was a very meaningful spot, because not only had Caitlin dreamed of getting married here, but on a rock right beside the chapel is where Sean proposed.  Lots of memories up on this beautiful mountain.  We laughed through this process, we cried, we hugged a whole lot, and there was a friendship that was formed that will never be broken.  Love the Bazans and the Hastings to pieces.  I think Jeremy Russell (photographer extraordinaire) could say the same things about this family…actually, I know he does.  Thank you, Jeremy, for your brilliant work, as always.

I can not blog this wedding without honoring one of Caitlin’s beautiful bridesmaids.  Her name is Perrin, and although I only first met her at the rehearsal dinner, her light radiated so brightly, that you could not help but smile in her presence.  There was a gentleness and humility about her that was undeniable.  A sweet spirit, who just recently passed from this life where she battled cancer.  Now she has moved on to a healed and pain-free life with her Savior in heaven.  I can’t do much, but I can share her picture with you, and I can share the love that Caitlin had for her friend.   Caitlin loved her more than words, and there is nothing Caitlin wanted more than to have Perrin there to celebrate her wedding.  So blessed to have met her.

Amelia and Greg’s Fall Wedding Part I

I loved everything about this wedding…the people, the laid-back vibe, the dream catchers, all the colors, flowers, hanging lights, table runners, and I could go on and on.  Amelia and Greg are an amazing couple, and she is so talented it is ridiculous.  Her jewelry line, Mountainside Designs Jewelry, is definitely worth taking a look at and she makes every piece you see.  Let’s just say I am a fan!  🙂  I was so excited when Amelia wanted me to help with her wedding since I had also helped with her brother’s wedding the year before.  Love it when I get to see families again!  Thank you to Graham Terhune for sharing your talent…and taking such swoon-worthy pictures of such a special day.  Enjoy Part I of Amelia and Greg’s wedding at Lake Eden.  Be looking out for Part II!

Raimey and Andrew’s Biltmore Wedding Part I

Raimey and Andrew are a couple that you meet and you know immediately that they just ‘work’.  The chemistry is there, the love is there, but there is something else…a kindred spirit, an interlocking of beliefs, and a love for family.  Raimey has a daughter ‘Goose’, who is simply radiant, and Andrew loves that little girl with all that he has.  That alone would make any girl swoon, and fortunately, that girl was Raimey.  She is gorgeous, ambitious, tenderhearted, and yet she can hunt with the big boys!  When she first sent me her hunting pictures, I about died!  I would not mess with that one.  So needless to say, putting together their wedding at the Diana, on the Biltmore Estate, was super fun and simply a dream.  We created a more rustic, southern atmosphere for the ceremony and cocktail hour, but when their guests walked into the dinner reception they were dazzled with a timeless look of black and white.  So beautiful!  Thank you, Brian Sumner Photography for the amazing pictures!  I am honored to share them with all of you…here is Part I!
