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:

Katie and Matt’s Garden Wedding

I just LOVE this wedding.  Katie and Matt’s wedding was intimate, welcoming and simply sweet.  The ceremony took place in the Walled Garden followed by a dinner reception in the Butterfly Gardens in front of the Conservatory on the Biltmore Estate.  Beautiful flowers and greenery surround this little piece of paradise on the Biltmore grounds, and it is by far one of my favorite places for an intimate wedding.  So thrilled for Katie and Matt, and thank you Rachael McIntosh for capturing their wedding so perfectly.  Enjoy!

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!

Caitlin and Sean Part II

Flowers, flowers, flowers everywhere!  Thank you to The Bloom Room for an over the top job in transforming the Cliffs Valley Ballroom into an beautiful garden…so so pretty.  Love all the colors that Caitlin wanted to use, and it was so much fun to help design.  Take a look….but I will warn you…there are lots of pictures!  Jeremy Russell you are just too good!  I couldn’t choose!

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.
