Dani, Joey, & and an Oscar Blues REEB Ranch Wedding

Never have I had the pleasure of working with a couple so perfectly in love with each other. Danielle and Joey’s happiness and love for each other absolutely shone through the entire day of their wedding. Oscar Blues REEB Ranch was filled with laughter, friends, tons of fun, and above all – love.

One of the many – many things I loved about Joey and Danielle’s wedding was the inclusion of everyone’s dogs! Tegan, the bride’s beautiful Black Lab was the “Dog of Honor” – and fulfilled her responsibilities flawlessly.

The reception was a fun filled and laid back environment, with the awesome live band, Fish Sticks and Brevard’s very talented Matt Gardner. Yard games were played, including “extra large” horse shoes (see photos) which had me in stitches with laughter.

This beautiful cake and delicious cake push pops were made by the talented Sugar Cloud Baking Company. Catering by Luella’s Bar-B-Que of South Asheville (to die for!).

You’ve probably noticed this by now, but these two are clearly meant to be together. Look at the way he looks at her. I love it.

The night was capped off with a surprise tandem bike ride by the bride and groom, and then everyone’s favorite, sparklers!

Joey and Danielle – thank you so much for letting me capture your beautiful day!

Christopher and Catherine’s Simply Sweet Special Day

Catherine and Christopher are my latest couple to tie the knot – and what a special day it was. Catherine is honestly one of the sweetest brides I have ever had the pleasure of working with, and it reflected throughout the entire ceremony and reception.

They exchanged vows from one of our most famous overlooks in the mountains, the Fred W. Symmes Chapel in Cleveland, SC. This place is affectionately called by locals “Pretty Place”… and trust me, it IS a very pretty place.

See what I mean? You can’t go wrong with a view like that!

 

Following the ceremony, we all made our way to downtown Brevard, NC – where we walked along Main Street to Jaime’s Creole Brasserie. If you ever are looking for a fantastic place to eat that is above and beyond the normal small town dining experience, I highly recommend Jaime’s. They atmosphere was relaxed and festive, and the food – to die for!
