Brian and Gry Woodward are our dear friends and preferred LBB photographers listed in the Asheville, North Carolina and Savannah, Georgia areas. They’ve been with SMP from the very beginning and we can’t thank them enough for their continued support to all of us!
Brian & Gry are highly sought after wedding photographers partly due to their magnetic personalities and partially because of their sterling reputations for capturing the stunning moments that define every couple’s most special of days! They realize that wedding dreams come in all shapes and sizes and are able to document each wedding with style, flair and passion.
They recently posted Esther and Jason’s October wedding on their blog and have agreed to share it with all of us today!

Bigger is not always better:) We’ve photographed some huge, multi-day wedding celebrations over the years and yes, they were absolutely gorgeous. But some of the nicest, most meaningful weddings have been small, intimate gatherings. This wedding is a prime example.
Esther and Jason, who are from the same area in Florida that Brian used to live, were married last October at the Biltmore Estate in a small, cozy ceremony with about 35 friends and family. Shay Brown, owner of Shay Brown Events and Palettes of Perfection in Asheville planned the day for Esther and as always, did a fabulous job!
Stacey Brown, owner of The Bloom Room in Asheville, worked her magic with the flowers. . .check out the bride’s bouquet and attendant’s bouquet, just awesome! The ceremony was at the Vista at the Inn on Biltmore Estate and the reception in the Biltmore Wine Cellar.
It was just a gorgeous wedding, Esther + Jason were so much fun to work with and even though it rained a bit nothing was going to stop them from making their wedding a day to remember. So, it doesn’t have to be a mega affair to be beautiful! Thanks Esther + Jason for allowing us to share your wedding day!
Incredible, Brian & Gry … ~ Woodward + Rick Photographers ~ just incredible!
Congratulations Esther and Jason! Your wedding was pure magic!

Update ~ I wrote to Esther for a little more info on their “story”. We just received this from the lovely bride …
Jason and I met while working together at a Dr’s office in town. I worked as a medical assistant and Jason was a medical rep in the building. We started going out and were together 5yrs before Jason proposed to me at Cinderella’s Wishing Well beside the Castle at Walt Disney World one night! It was truly magical … as was our wedding. We are so excited you enjoyed our pictures. It truly was the best day of our lives!
