Antler Hill Barn Wedding Rehearsal Dinner

We can’t wait to show you Jessica and Jon’s Biltmore wedding from September, but we just had to share this cozy Antler Hill Barn rehearsal dinner first. It’s the perfect venue for a rustic event. Complete with bluegrass music, corn hole, croquet, a big bonfire and s’mores. What a fantastic pre-wedding celebration in the mountains of Asheville. If you find yourself singing “Should’ve Been a Cowboy” we don’t blame you.

A shout out to all the folks involved: Events by Kiersa, Flora, Unspoken Tradition, Mingle, Biltmore’s Antler Hill Barn staff, and of course Jessica, Jon and their families.

Asheville Wedding at NC Arboretum

Andrea and Marc had an Asheville wedding at the NC Arboretum and we were blessed to be part of it. Andrea looked so lovely in her custom dress by local Asheville designer Susan Stowell. The couple loves swing dancing so the dress was very fitting as Andrea whirled around during their first swing dance. All the table decorations were DIY and the flowers were done by the bride’s sister, Emily. The outdoor ceremony was delightful and it even started raining near the end — which is good luck in our opinion! Family and friends enjoyed a delicious spread of pies from Dough and then danced the night away to DJ Nathan White. Guests attended from all over the country to celebrate this perfect Asheville wedding.

Engagement Photography in Asheville

We adore this engagement shoot. Aside from the fact that Claire and Evan should be in a magazine, this location was totally them. They chose The Bull and Beggar in Asheville’s River Arts District because they have a connection to it. They enjoy hanging out there and also own a business that provides the restaurant with organic produce. Check out The Culinary Gardener.

Engagement photography in Asheville does not always have to be in a field of tall grass capped off with an epic sunset finale (though we love that too!). These shoots are about who you are as a couple and being comfortable and relaxed in the environment, your clothes, and most importantly with each other. After taking these photos Claire and Evan told us “it really added a lot of excitement for the actual wedding.” Guess what? The shoot got us excited for the actual wedding, too! And this is on top of the excitement we already had, so we’re talking ‘off the charts’ now.

Free advice: for your engagement location pick a place that is you. It’s that simple. If you can’t think of a place then a field of tall grass at sunset it is! Either way we’ll make it completely enjoyable and create magic.

Asheville, NC is an ideal place for engagement photography. We are based in this lovely town and want to take your picture — right now! Head to our contact page and let’s get the conversation started. Wedding photography is our profession and we are dedicated to making you happy with awesome photos.
