Patty and Monty wanted a low-key (Yet still amazing and elegant) way to wed and settled in on a Biltmore Estate elopement–just the two of them with Monty’s three children serving as pint-sized witnesses. I excitedly drove to Biltmore (As for some reason, in all of the stunning places I’ve photograph both in and out […]
There is just something magical about an intimate and elegant outdoor wedding. Here are 5 reasons why I love intimate and elegant outdoor weddings: (with images from one of my absolute favorite weddings of this nature at the AMAZING Primland Resort.) 1. ) “Intimate wedding” is more than just a number: Intimate does not simply […]
Alexa and Thomas were married in an intimate/outdoor ceremony–and it was perfect. Alexa wanted the night to feel magical, (And the fine folks at Nectar floral design stepped in to provide all of the ‘twinkle’ and modern aisle pieces and geometric ‘lanterns’ that certainly made it so) But, she also wanted it to feel laid-back and casual surrounded by laughing and lots of dancing.
Let me tell you about 2015.
It was the year of RAIN. Lots of rain. (I had more rainy wedding days this year than my past 4 seasons combined!)
It was the year I really worked to find a black and white processing I love and fell hard for what grainy, contrasty black and white can add to an image to showcase emotion. (Though I have always adored B&W…for whatever reason this year it took center stage for me.)
It was also the year of my rebranding and really focusing on attracting my ‘ideal clients’–those that adore each other, life and look at a wedding as the beautiful beginning of something much bigger vs. just a pretty Pinterest party.
I was looking to find my fellow ‘glamorous, fearless and fiery’ souls who want to to squeeze out every once of this life has to offer via travel, adventures, friends, food, wine and typically…pets.
..And man, did I.

There was something very special about Molly and Jim’s Daniel Stowe Botanical garden wedding. Perhaps it was the gorgeous setting of the gardens. Maybe it was the ‘calm’ that seemed present the entire day. Or, perhaps it was the many beautiful emotions encircling this couple throughout the day: Dad’s pride when he saw his girl, […]
The weather forecast was looking less-than-fab. As I stepped from the car to carry in my equipment to the ever-so-elegant, Mills House…its began to rain. Our bride–Sandy, blissfully unaware of the drizzle; was surrounded by her maids, having her ‘finishing touches’ of hair and makeup completed and then stepped into her Allure Couture classic wedding […]
Our wedding has southern influence and aims to be warm, welcoming, relaxing, and easy to navigate. We have outdoor elements (outdoor ceremony and cocktail reception) and an elegant indoor dinner, with dancing to follow the rest of the evening. Our colors are burgundy and gray. We are having an “unplugged” ceremony, but pictures are welcome during the reception. There will be some Czech influence in the wedding in the form of rosemary (adorning some chairs in the ceremony and in the bride and groom seats during dinner) A simple. fun, Southern/Czech wedding
