Melanie + Andrew

I am so excited to share these beautiful images from Melanie and Andrew’s wedding in the mountains of Asheville at Claxton Farm. The bride’s vision of a soft elegant mountain feel translated perfectly into their gorgeous wedding day.  Full vendor list below!

The Rae Family – One Year Later

I am very happy to say that I work with some of the sweetest brides. Last year was no exception working with Sara and her hubby, Chris! Check out these photos from her wedding at BELFAIR PLANTATION in Bluffton, South Carolina.

ALSO … check out the last photo in the group here – I LOVE when my clients come back for a Christmas Card.  Makes my heart so happy!

Happy One Year Anniversary Sara and Chris!!

christmas in july

I will have to admit – this is one of the top 5 weddings I have had the pleasure of working on with a bride.  However this one is more special to me because it was the wedding of my sweet cousin, Kayla who’s more like a sister than a cousin to me. She made a simply stunning bride and her groom was pretty handsome that day as well.

We share a special bond in our family . . . and some of you know how close I am to my family – so this was a huge celebration for our family to all be together in the same place for a huge party!   Kayla pulled her winter dream wedding together with the help of John Gandy Events of Tallahassee, Florida.

This weekend wedding took place at a gorgeous north Florida plantation and my favorite part of the venue was everyone stayed, celebrated and partied late into the night all on the same property!

I AM GOING TO START OUT WITH MY FAVORITE PHOTO FROM THE WEDDING – Kayla’s Something Blue (and Something Old). My mom and I helped my Grandmother pick out an old blue tie that my Grandfather was notorious for wearing . . . and it still smells like him 13 years later. My sweet Aunt Jan (who’s a talented seamstress) cut out a heart shape from the tie and stitched it in Kayla’s wedding dress.  Our Grandfather was an amazing man and this was a PERFECT way to incorporate him into her big day . . . . insert the tears!
