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.

Kira + Jack’s Biltmore Wedding Part I

Kira and Jack….and actress and a chef from New York, were married at the Lioncrest on the Biltmore Estate this past fall.  Blossoms knocked it out of the park with their floral design.  So many fun details and so many focused on pigs!  Pig escort cards, pig ring bearer boxes, roasted pig, pigs on the bar, and pigs on their invites.  So freakin’ adorable.  Plus I must say that Kira had one of the most fun bridal parties ever.  They were so supportive, constantly made her laugh, and their love for her was truly fierce.  I just adored them.  Thank you to Jill, with Realities Photography, for making this day all that more enjoyable by your presence and by taking some fabulous photos!  Look out for Part II!

Lauren + Tim’s Biltmore Wedding I

Lauren and Tim…they keep you smiling because they are constantly smiling.  Plus they have two adorable bull dogs…Max and Bob, which also keep you smiling.  🙂  Smiles all around!  I relished the time that we had planning their wedding, as they were not only an awesome couple to be around, but they seemed to truly enjoy the process.  They trusted the vendors they had in place, which made our jobs not even seem like jobs!  Thank you, Lauren and Tim, for simply being incredible people who love each other deeply, and through your overflow, others are blessed.  People like you make me love what I do even more.  Lauren and Tim’s wedding took place at the Diana at the Biltmore Estate.  Thank you, Hannah Hudson, for the beautiful pictures and for the pleasure of getting to work with you.  Here is Part I…

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.

Lindsey & Casey-Wedding with a View

One of the prettiest chapels is located in the Cliffs of Glassy, and the view goes on for days.  This is one of the many reasons why Lindsey and Casey decided to unite as one in this beautiful place.  Fortunately, Jeremy Russell was on hand to document every moment with perfection.  It was a gorgeous, warm day, and this made their smiles even bigger.  Thank you to the Cliffs team, Flora, Spintastic Sounds, Ruth and Ranshaw, Digital Video Memories, Limelight FX, Baggie Goose (signs/paper) and Elements Salon for making this day so wonderful for this special couple!

Kristi and Edward’s Rehearsal Dinner

Kristi and Edward wanted to start off their wedding weekend with relaxation, fun and barbecue…The Farm was a fantastic choice!  Kristi and Edward’s guests couldn’t help but relax and have a good time as they were surrounded by a beautiful landscape with grazing horses, charmed by the music of Whitewater Bluegrass, and filled with delicious BBQ straight out of a Appalachian Smoke’s food truck.  Such a perfect start to the weekend!  Thank you to Jeremy Russell for being there to capture it all.
