Childress Vineyard wedding: Lindsay & Daniel

On Saturday, Renee and Jarvis joined Lindsay and Daniel for their wedding. This party has been in the making for a while, and it was gorgeous. There were scattered thunderstorms all afternoon. In fact, the weather almost forced things to be moved indoors. Thankfully, Lindsay was persistent and the sun came out just in time. Everything was amazing and this pair deserved every bit of it! Here are some of the highlights!

The happy couple...

Asheville photography - A Grove Park Inn Wedding: Julie & Jose

Last Saturday, we went to Asheville's beautiful Grove Park Inn for Julie and José's wedding. A little rain didn't dampen anyone's spirits, and the ceremony was held on a balcony overlooking the Blue Ridge Mountains. Of course as you can see below that Julie and José can lighten up any dreary afternoon. Take a look at Julie's bridal session for more proof. :-) We also set up a photo booth for some fun and goofy pics. Thanks guys, hope you are enjoying the honeymoon!

Proximity Wedding: Blair & Martin

Blair and Martin picked a great day to get married! The weather was beautiful and, as usual, the Proximity Hotel was a class act. These Ivy-leaguers are a perfect match; she's Yale, he's Harvard... but that didn't stop them from uniting on all fronts! Several members of Martin's family flew in from Denmark for the big fete, and shared some of their wedding traditions, including a special wedding cake, homemade cookies and lots of dancing! Here are some of the highlights below. Please leave the happy couple some well-wishes in the comments section!
