Grove Park Inn Country Club Wedding

Happy New Year! We hope everyone had a wonderful 2014. We can’t wait for all your upcoming weddings in 2015 but we still have spectacular events from last year to share. First up is Phil and Whitney’s Omni Resorts Grove Park Inn country club wedding in Asheville, NC. This historic hotel was the perfect venue for their destination wedding. We especially adore the invitations and programs that were designed by Whitney’s sister. They compliment the Grove Park Inn’s early 20th century history so well. Phil and Whitney impressed everyone with their choreographed first dance and then everyone celebrated by dancing the night away. There were so many exciting candids to capture and this day was yet another example of why we love being wedding photographers. Congrats to the awesome bride and groom!

Thanks so much to the following people and vendors: Party Envy (planner), Erin with Grove Park Inn, Nancy Radford (florist), Luke B., Secret Spa, Gray Line Trolley, Rachel Kistler (violin), Rev. Jacqui Weiks, and DJ Chuck Hedrick.

Enjoy all their beautiful moments and portraits!

Biltmore Engagement Photography

Morgan and Davis are so adorable. We spent a lovely fall evening taking their engagement photos at the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC. Davis proposed to Morgan at the Biltmore so they knew it would be the perfect spot for their engagement photography. How cute are they?

Biltmore engagement photography is beautiful in any season, so get in touch with us to book a session before your wedding! Our sessions are playful, romantic, and full of variety.

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.
