Downtown Asheville Wedding Photography – Reid and Kelly’s Wedding

Reid and Kelly’s colorful wedding day was a perfect complement to this music loving couple.  They filled the day with joyous celebration accompanied by awesome music.  The wedding party got ready at the Haywood Park Hotel in downtown Asheville, NC, loaded into a Asheville Historic Trolley wandering around town for pre-wedding photos.  The ceremony was at Pack Square, with the bridesmaids and groomsmen in classic black dresses with bright, rainbow colored parasols for the ladies and the men were in black suits from Men’s Wearhouse with a myriad of vest colors and tye-dye socks.  Kelly’s dress carried the rainbow theme as well, with a timeless satin gown accented by her mother with rainbow tulle at the bottom.  Her hair was pulled into a gorgeous sweeping side ponytail full of curls by Echo at Salon Red.  A spectacular orchid from Shady Grove florist was placed in Kelly’s hair as the perfect accent her lotus back tattoo.  Her rings are from Jewels that Dance and necklace/earrings from Elementality.  

After the vows and ceremony in the heart of downtown Asheville, the couple kissed and Asheville Second Line Jazz emerged from behind the stage and led the party across the square to Pack’s Tavern with a Mardi Gras style parade. They all danced outside of Packs to the New Orleans Jazz then the party headed upstairs to the Century Room for the reception.  Phunkle Sam came on the stage covering Grateful Dead tunes and keeping the music fueled energy pumping and the dance floor filled.  The bride’s mother created the amazing paper flowers that adorned the cake and reception decor.  Truly the most colorful, detail filled day that could not have been more fun.   Thank you, Kelly and Reid, for having me capture such a special time for you and your families.  🙂
