The onsite reception barn has so much character and is perfect for couples who want a rustic but charming asheville barn wedding. The ground are stunning and have unlimited photographic possibilities and the cabins/lodging options for the bride and groom + wedding party/family are awesome!

two guys jump for joy at their backyard asheville weddingpintopinterest This wedding I’m sharing today is one of my all time favorites, yet another one that for some unknowing reason I have not gotten around to blogging yet!!! I’m so very excited to share it with you today! Casey and Kevin’s wedding was not only gorgeous, it was full of emotion and hands down one of the most pants-splittingly (spell check does not like this word) fun weddings… Literally, that fun jumping photo above, well Casey walked away with his pants split completely up the back – 10 minutes before they were supposed to walk down the aisle! Here is where I throw in the disclaimer that we DID NOT ask them to do this…. This was all their idea, we were just innocent bystanders who promised eagerly to photograph their following antics. Now I think we can agree that most people would have been perturbed about splitting their suite pants just before they get married, not these guys, they just laughed it off and went to find the sewing kit/ducktape. Needless to say these two are rockstars and we had a blast capturing their wedding day! asheville mountaintop wedding ceremony sitepintopinterest Kevin and Casey’s wedding ceremony took place on top of a grassy hill with Mount Monadnock in the background. Kevin’s dad made all the benches out of recycled wood and they were placed in a circle so that all of the wedding guests would be facing in towards the two grooms as they said their vows! It was such a unique layout and so much fun to photograph! adventure mountain wedding in asheville pintopinterest rustic asheville wedding details include custom logo pintopinterest Kevin and Casey designed a custom logo for their wedding day and it was used throughout the day as a special touch… Everything from signs with the logo directing their guests where to go, to custom temporary tattoos for their guests to adorn themselves with! beautiful mountaintop rustic wedding programpintopinterest intimate backyard asheville wedding pintopinterest circular asheville wedding ceremony set uppintopinterest LOVED the circular ceremony set up that Casey and Kevin chose for their mountain ceremony. same sex asheville wedding portraitpintopinterest asheville woodsy same sex wedding pintopinterest These two were naturals in front of the camera! gorgeous mountain wedding portraits in the blue ridge mountainspintopinterest gorgeous tented wedding detailspintopinterest Live Free or Die – the New Hampshire state motto was displayed under the gorgeous sailcloth tent. I’m fairly certain Kevin and Casey cut these letter’s themselves! beautiful wild flowers under sailcloth tentpintopinterest hand chiseled rustic wedding bandspintopinterest asian inspired slider station during tented asheville wedding pintopinterest Casey and Kevin chose to forgo a traditional sit down dinner and instead decided on a New York food truck theme. They had a bunch of different stations spread throughout the tent that represented food you usually see being offered from food trucks; Asian dumpling and noodle station, slider station, taco station with fresh guacamole and salsa and a hot dog station. For dessert they had a make your own ice cream sandwich bar with homemade cookies, OMG, so good! asheville wedding guests in kayakpintopinterest custom wedding stamps provided to guestspintopinterest Aren’t those tattoos the most awesome thing ever?! We thought so! custom centerpieces during asheville tented wedding pintopinterest The flowers were beautiful and simple, handpicked by Casey’s + Kevin’s friends and family the day before the wedding. these two grooms were so excited to get introducedpintopinterest an epic first song instead of traditional first dancepintopinterest As if their wedding wasn’t epic enough already… These two grooms chose to perform a karaoke first song instead of a first dance, their good friend joined them on guitar!
