From the photographer… These sweet engagement images were taken in Pine Knoll Shores, on the beautiful coast of North Carolina. These beaches have a lot of meaning for Callie and Jamie, since Jamie’s family owns a home within walking distance of this beach. Every aspect of this session brought me so much joy – because I know this couple really well, I could tell that it every detail was perfectly them. On the beach at sunset in a beautiful gown and handsome suit. It couldn’t have been more fitting for their style! We also had a more casual time in the harbor where Jamie’s family boat is located. There was so much laughter and joy throughout the entire session; I couldn’t be happier for this beautiful couple!
Fall weddings drenched in candlelight are my favorite. They’re comfy and cozy, seriously romantic and, in my humble opinion, the perfect way to say “I do.” Case in point? This magical affair captured by A.J. Dunlap, which is basically everything I adore about autumn nuptials (see above), plus a side of sweetness to kick it up a notch or two. See every pretty moment right here.
From A.J. Dunlap Photography… This was a stunning candlelit fall wedding. The entire event from ceremony to end of reception was donned with candles and twinkle lights. The feeling in the air was simply magical. The bride and groom opted for a first look since their wedding took place after dark, which made for some truly special moments. The bride had a grandmother who wasn’t able to attend so she wore her antique mink stoll in honor. That paired with the bride’s dark champagne colored dress were breathtaking. Not to mention the gorgeous bridesmaids’ dresses and bouquets.
Asheville Event Co. is behind some of my very favorite weddings ever. They layer love with style in a way that is unparalleled and this wedding might just be my all time favorite of their weddings. Ever. Caroline Ghetes captured the Lonesome Valley wedding and you’re about to see why it’s my favorite!
From the planner… Ida + Clay love to drive…They met in high school but it wasn’t until they re-met later in life that the sparks flew. With their affinity for the mountains of Western North Carolina it was appropriate that they find the perfect place to exchange their vows. So…while driving along the windy road from Highlands to Sapphire they just happened to pass Lonesome Valley. They both thought it was the perfect place to celebrate their wedding and they were in luck since Canyon Kitchen had recently begin hosting weddings.
This was a rustic, American/Persian wedding and we loved being a part of it! The Persian ceremony was very unique and touching, and filled with personal touches – handmade pillows, rustic pews. The reception was filled with handmade desserts, carpet coasters and the Persian/American meal that James Beard Nominee Chef Fleer created. At the end of the night the guests danced the night away and roasted s’mores over an open fire.
