It is always an honor to get to photograph a wedding in a new location, especially somewhere as lovely as Hickory, North Carolina on a fall day. St Andrews Lutheran Church is simply gorgeous and was filled with love for Sarah and Patrick as family and friends gathered for the wedding ceremony. I photographed Sarah’s sister’s wedding a few years ago and was so honored to get to be there for the family again, even though her sister was at home, 9 months pregnant, unable to travel. She recorded a perfect toast and was able to be there in spirit (and video chat). Their reception venue, Warehouse 18, had so much character – rustic brick and antique chandeliers in a restored warehouse. It was an awesome space to celebrate this amazing pair.
As excited as I am to share photos from the wedding day, I am ecstatic to share photos from Sarah’s bridal session. Days before their wedding, Sarah drove down to Asheville for the most lovely bridal session at the Asheville Masonic Temple. Sarah’s gorgeous gown, adorable (and comfy!) shoes, perfectly styled hair and makeup, combined with her classic beauty in this timeless, historic space made for such fabulous portraits of her. Bridal sessions are a wonderful opportunity for a ‘test run’ in the dress, shoes, for hair and makeup – highly recommended for all brides!
Wishing Sarah and Patrick all the best for what is to come!! I hope you adore getting to see some of our favorites from their photo collections – wish I could share them all!!
