I am truly a lucky photographer to get to work with such awesome couples, and am so thankful that Christina and Donna chose me as their wedding photographer. These destination brides connected with one of my favorite planners, Kiersa with Events by Kiersa, to make their wedding day the best ever. They LOVED working with her as she made the planning the big day from a great distance a do-able feat.
These two inspired brides created lots of wonderful DIY details using shades of blue throughout their spectacular wedding weekend. Just before the ceremony, rain moved in and changed the the plan for an outdoor ceremony to the most wonderful plan B under the tent. Kiersa’s team made a seamless transition, quickly transforming the space from reception ready to ceremony set in moments. The long reception tables acted as a gorgeous entrance way for the ceremony; the tall vases of baby’s breath and candlelight tablescapes could not have been prettier. A wall of ribbons they created was the perfect backdrop behind their wedding arbor. Tears of joy flowed from the brides and their dearest people gathered to witness them celebrating 7 years together by being married.
The sprinkling rain that later turned into light snow flurries could not keep everyone from celebrating! Their friends and family were so so thrilled to see these two hitched!!
Jakub Holy, of Bright Light DJ, helped Kiersa keep it all running smoothly and the music playing just right to fill the dance floor at the reception. Colorful Palate catered throughout the day and never cease to impress with their simply beautiful and delicious offerings. Short Street Cakes made the lovely ombre cake. The lucky guests were gifted some of the most delicious truffles from the French Broad Chocolate Lounge. Elaine Young was the florist – the sea of white baby’s breath was so so sweet!! Deer Creek Run in Weaverville could not have been a more perfect location. Spectacular hair and makeup by Pop of Color – Melissa Deboer – that looked great all day and night even with rain, dancing and tears!!
This couple simply had the best for their perfect wedding day! It was an honor to capture two people so in love!! It has been next to impossible to choose a small selection of images from this awesome day! SO excited to finally share some of my favorites from this wedding!! Hope you love these as much as I do!
Be sure to check out Christina and Donna’s trash the dress/after wedding session post if you haven’t already (see it HERE!) where their impeccably white wedding clothes ended up covered in many shades of blue paint. These two are so much fun to photograph!! Best wishes to these two!! Looking forward to our next session together!!
