Alex + Jeremy visit!

Last week, our dear friends Alex + Jeremy stopped in for a visit and lunch on their way to Charlotte! We photographed their wedding at the Crest Center waaaay back in 2007. Our friend Ivy Robinson was their wedding planner and she totally transformed the Crest Center. . .Ivy, you are amazing! Their wedding was also featured in the Fall issue of Weddings Unveiled Magazine last year! We had so much fun with them (Jeremy missed his calling as a stand up comic!) and, as we do with so many of our "brides + grooms", we've become good friends. Alex + Jeremy are the reason we love what we do. . .they are just great people and we are honored to call them friends!

And! Not long ago, another of our favorite couples, Lexi + Jason, stopped by to visit when they were in town. Their wedding was at the Cliffs Chapel in South Carolina on Gry's birthday two years ago! They were so nice, they even had a birthday cake made for Gry at their reception! Sara tried to take a photo of the four of us but she's still working on her focusing ability so I've posted a couple of images from their wedding.

Thanks again guys for stopping by to see us and for the yummy lunch! (If I knew you were going to buy I woulda got the lobster;) We're still havin' the BBQ on the 26th if you want to come on over!!

Here's a couple of images from Alex + Jeremy's visit and both of their weddings. . .enjoy!

Featured on Style Me Pretty - Little Black Book!

After a fun night with a bunch of friends (thanks Shay Brown for turning me on to raspberry mojitos!) at the fabulous new Grand Bohemian Hotel in Asheville celebrating photographer friends Kelly Giezentanner's and Honour Mann's bdays, we woke up this morning to find one of our weddings featured on the Style Me Pretty - Little Black Book blog! Style Me Pretty and Little Black Book is an absolutely fabulous resource for brides and frankly one of the best in the country. All of the vendors they list in Little Black Book have been carefully screened and approved by them and the other members so brides know they are really getting top level professionals. . .who else would you want to trust your wedding to! Great job Abby, Michelle, and Eddye!

This was a gorgeous wedding from last Fall at the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC. Nisha Thomas and Jay Dearborn were our bride and groom and they were just amazing to work with. We loved the colors, the bridesmaids saris and Nisha was simply beautiful! Nicole Riley from Verge Events in Asheville brought everything together for them and did a great job as always. Blossoms at Biltmore Park did a wonderful job with the flowers and the good people at the Biltmore Estate provided a wonderful experience as they always do.

Thanks Nisha + Jay for allowing us to be a part of your wedding day! Here's a couple more images from the day:
