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:

Sarah and Ryan’s Mountain-Top Wedding

Sarah and Ryan were married at the gorgeous Cliffs Glassy Chapel that overlooks spectacular views of North and South Carolina.  Definitely one of my absolute favorite places for a ceremony.  Guests were then treated to dinner and dancing at the Cliffs Glassy Clubhouse.  Thank you to the wonderful Jeremy Russell for the photographs, and to The Bloom Room for the floral design.  So pretty!  Also a HUGE thank you to Tere for helping pull everything together!  Enjoy….

Liz and Jaco Wed!

Liz and Jaco are a stunning couple, who have it all going for them…they are super sweet, gorgeous to look at, very smart, and certainly in love!  I really enjoyed getting to know them as individuals and as a couple, and also working with Liz’s parents was a pleasure.  The wedding ceremony was held at the majestic Cliffs Glassy Chapel, while the reception was at the Cliffs Glassy Clubhouse.  Everyone had an amazing time, and it was so much fun to watch!  Thank you to Jacob Dean Photography for these fabulous pictures…


Flowers by The Bloom Room

Avery and Nick Wed at the Cliffs

Avery was a blast to work with, and to see her so happy on her wedding day made all the planning worth it.  She looked amazing, and I loved the fact that she had two different wedding dresses for the festivities.  The ceremony took place at the Cliffs Glassy Chapel in South Carolina.  The views from this chapel are indescribable…there is no chapel that compares!  Then the guests were transported to the Cliffs Falls Clubhouse for the dinner reception.  The dinner took place on the clubhouse’s magnificent porch so they were able to enjoy the views all evening. The Bloom Room wowed everyone with their flowers and Jeremy Russell was the perfect photographer to capture the day.  THANK YOU, Jeremy, for all of these pictures!

Thank you to Jamie and Caroline with Capello Salon for Avery’s (and her girls) makeup and hair!

Before the guests arrived at the ceremony, Avery and Nick wanted to see each other…I just love this picture of Nick waiting on his bride-to-be.

Avery and her mama…

Avery and her daddy…

Rhythm Nation definitely got everyone dancing and having a good time!

I thought this was such a precious picture of Avery, Nick and Avery’s parents…a lot of emotion here.

Kathleen and Brian’s Slide Show

A few weeks ago, I posted some pictures from Kathleen and Brian’s wedding at the Cliffs Glassy Chapel and reception at the Wyche Pavilion.   Woodward + Rick put together a beautiful slide show of more pictures from this wedding, and I wanted to share these with you!  Click on the picture below…

Leslie and Chip

On August 23rd, Leslie and Chip had a gorgeous ceremony at the Cliffs Glassy Chapel followed by a reception at the Cliffs Valley Clubhouse. I think I have said this before, but the Cliffs chapel is one of the prettiest chapels I have ever seen. It sits on the tip top of the Cliffs Glassy property, and the views are endless! Leslie and Chip were like Barbie and Ken…so adorable together! Here are a few of their engagement and wedding pictures by Tracy Kimball Photography. Thank you, Tracy!

At the rehearsal!

Leslie was in dental school, so they gave out dental floss to the guests! 🙂 Love it!

The guys got golf tees!

Lexi and Jason get married at the Cliffs

On a beautiful November afternoon, Lexi and Jason were married at the Cliffs at Glassy chapel followed by an amazing reception at the Cliffs Valley clubhouse. A wonderful couple, so obviously in love and delightful to work with. Lexi comes from a very talented family of musicians (and is one herself!), and one of my favorite moments was when Lexi’s father played his violin at the wedding. There were not many dry eyes in the place! 🙂

Brian and Gry, with Woodward and Rick, were there to capture these precious moments, and they were kind enough to send me a slideshow. Enjoy!

Jess and Jake married at Cliffs Glassy

Hello again! Jess and Jake were married at the Cliffs Glassy Chapel, in South Carolina, on October 13th. Their reception was held at the Cliffs Valley Clubhouse. If you have never been to the chapel at Glassy, the views are unbelievable. You can see miles and miles….views of both North Carolina and South Carolina. Amazing! Pictures just wouldn’t do it justice!

Here are some photographs taken by John Gillespie. I really enjoyed working with John and Jeff Bradt, the videographer. Enjoy!

Look how beautiful Jess is! Loved the bouquet by Sweetbriar!

Jake is in medical school, so as favors they gave these ‘Prescription’ bottles filled with candy!

This past weekend, our friends Amy and Cody were married at Pink Beds in the Pisgah National Forest. This time I was just a guest, so that was nice! Amy and Cody are moving to Mexico to live as missionaries, to spread the good news of Jesus Christ and His saving grace. Jonathan and I, along with family and friends watched this beautiful union, and we were in awe of the love that was so apparent between them. One of my favorite parts of the ceremony was when they washed each others feet. Take a look at my husband’s photos…

Cody’s dad made this cake…he owns a bakery/cafe in Mexico. It was delicious!!

Cheesing it! 🙂

This past Sunday, Jonathan and I went down to his parents house in Greenville, SC. Jonathan’s brother, Chip, was back from Afghanistan for a 2-week leave. So good to have him home. He brought over his new puppy, Madeline Belle (Maddi). I instantly fell in love!

You think Toni’s jealous?
Goodness gracious, look at that face!!!
