The roses were blooming outside the church, and true to their philosophy of life, the couple stopped to smell the roses . Loved the moment, but loved the above shots better than the rose smelling photo. 🙂 The couple and wedding party loaded onto the trolley for a quick stop downtown in Pack Square for photos before everyone loaded up at the Renaissance to head to the reception at the Crest Center Pavilion. The floral was the amazing Stacey of the Bloom Room (love working with her unique designs!).
Andrew and Lisa were married at the Basilica of St Lawrence in downtown Asheville, North Carolina. I have enjoyed working with them to capture such a fun time in their lives. We had a blast a little more than a year earlier on their engagement session visiting her families land in Leicester. Check out photos from their engagement shoot here. They had the perfect October day for their nuptials that were officiated by Andrew’s two uncles that are priests. Lisa looked stunning in her Maggie Sottero gown. The Basilica is such a awe inspiring place – we were honored to be there to capture their full Catholic ceremony along with WNC Video Productions. Check out the video sample here.
The Crest Center pavilion was simply beautiful with the candles and fall color accents. The gorgeous cake – and groom’s pecan pie – were made by Sisters McMullen (always make tasty treats – cake, pie, cookies, whatever!!). Orange Krush played all night and kept the party rocking!! Can’t get much better than the couple having dance contests – the best one was where they both took a turn doing the worm! Yes, this gorgeous bride did the worm in that fabulous dress!!
LOVE Lisa and Andrew and all the love that was flowing that night. Congrats, Andrew and Lisa! (Her parents have the best sense of humor!! Her dad’s idea for the empty pulled out pocket shot kept me giggling on the drive home.) Thank you for having us there to capture your wedding day!! 🙂
