BLOWING ROCK, NC PHOTOGRAPHER

Blowing Rock, NC Photographer

I enjoyed photographing this family in Blowing Rock, NC this Fall. We met at Moses Cone Manor House where we explored the grounds and played in the leaves a bit. Yes, I was a bit of a fixture there this Fall because so it is such a pretty place. This family has a history of adoration for the grounds so they were so excited to use the area for their session. They drove up from Hickory, NC and I think really enjoyed the time in the mountains. What’s not to love about this place any time of the year, especially the Fall season.

They were such good sports and their kids were just as sweet as can be. The little boy a bit shy at first but then coming around and the little girl full of sass. She was a master at her own poses and I love the personality shining through in those. She did cartwheels almost the entire time we were walking around. Love that joy!

Since the leaves were late turning this year we were able to get a little color in even though we were past peak times. We also saw horses and had beautiful weather. A great session all around, can’t ask for anything more.

Aren’t their smiles the cutest too? At the end we had a bit of fun playing in the field with some big hugs and tickling. I really enjoyed spending some time with you all and am so glad you asked me to photograph your memories. You have a beautiful family and I’m so glad you have some updated photos to share. I hope your holiday season was the best! Thanks a bunch.

Twickenham House Weddings

Jen and Robert (Felix) were married in October at the gorgeous Twickenham House in West Jefferson, NC. The day started cool and misty which gave the wedding a cozy and magical vibe. Situated atop a mountain, this house is luxurious and also a cozy wonderland at the same time. There are spectacular views from the cliffside up above the house and the entire area is secluded. With so much space in the main house and a guest house as well as a beautiful reception hall, this venue is one of a kind and perfect for a NC destination wedding. Their wedding day was truly amazing and went off without a hitch thanks to the awesome work by Elizabeth with Events by Elizabeth Ashley.

As guests arrived atop the mountain via shuttle, they were greeted with so many beautiful touches at the ceremony area and equipped with white umbrellas for the drizzle. The weather was not going to stop these two from getting married outdoors as planned. The flowers provided by Shady Grove Gardens accentuating the grapevine arbor were so pretty and brought out the Fall navy and orange color palette of the wedding day. Jen’s dress was amazingly gorgeous … all that hugging lace! She looked divine. Then her classic Jimmy Choo’s and Tiffany pearls, everything was just perfect.

The groom and groomsmen were also decked out in their navy suits and military uniforms. They had “party shirts” hidden under their attire. Aren’t those cool? They made their appearance at the reception as soon as the wedding party made their entrance.

Look at that first kiss, love it! There was a lot of love shared all evening. As Jen and Felix’s friends and families celebrated into the night they enjoyed awesome music by Emerald Empire Band and had quite a fun dance party! Meanwhile, it became cold and windy outdoors as hurricane winds moved across the state from the coast. That made for a freezing sparkler exit to top the night off with lots of laughs!

It was an absolute pleasure to capture your memories Jen and Felix. You family and friends were amazing! Much love for a long and happy life together. Elizabeth, you were awesome to work with and made the day a breeze.

Last but certainly not least, an enormous thank you to Erin Lutz for assisting in shooting this wedding. You make everything better!

BANNER ELK WINERY WEDDING

Banner Elk Winery Wedding

This couple is just the sweetest! I had an instant connection with the bride Cindy when we spoke on the phone about their elopement in October at Banner Elk Winery. She is a fellow photographer in Myrtle Beach so there was that but she also just radiated warmth and kindness. You could tell it on their wedding day as well. Both Cindy and Ed were all smiles and excitement. They were so happy to be tying the knot. Ed is a meteorologist in Myrtle Beach so you may recognize him from TV if you frequent the area. Together they make the perfect pair, just look at them!

Their elopement ceremony was attended by close friends and family who bundled together to watch them say their vows. It was fiercely cold and windy. Gail force winds as a matter of fact … I was advised of this by the weathermen of the group. This did not stop the love though. Once they sealed it with a kiss we grabbed a few celebratory shots and then headed down the mountain. We finished up some pretty pictures of Cindy and Ed and their wedding party in a gated community in Banner Elk just as the sun set. It was much warmer and not windy down there.

I am so honored that I got to share in your wedding and that we got to know each other. Wishing you many years of happy wedded bliss!
