Although we are now living in the gorgeous mountains of Asheville NC and definitely consider ourselves Asheville wedding photographers… We do love the Northeast and always enjoy traveling up there for weddings. In September we were lucky enough to travel to Cape Cod to photograph Renee and Bryan’s wedding at one of our favorite Cape Cod wedding venues – Ocean Edge Resort.

The day was absolutely beautiful, perfect fall temperatures and plentiful sunshine! Renee looked stunning and their daughter Gia was just adorable… We did a special first look for Gia and Bryan, this was such a highlight on the day!!! Check out the images below!

The color Renee chose for her bridesmaids dresses were absolutely stunning against the blue of the ocean!

This fall Matt and I traveled to a little town in the mountains of Vermont, there we photographed Amy and Luis’s wedding at the gorgeous Riverside Farm ! Oh, what can I say… Their elegant farm wedding was absolutely perfect! There are few venues as perfectly suited for weddings as Riverside, not only are there multiple barn’s to hold your ceremony and reception but they also have the most ridiculously cute getting ready cabins for the bride and groom (yes, the groom also gets his own “grooms cabin”). Matt and I had an absolute blast photographing this wedding and I hope it shows in the pictures!

We had the opportunity to photograph so many amazing farm and barn weddings in the Northeast, now that we are based in the Asheville NC I cannot wait to see all of the amazing wedding venues Asheville (and the rest of North Carolina) has to offer!! We hope you love these images!!

I recently posted Case and Dan’s adventurous mountain sunrise engagement session… Their engagement session was easily one of my favorite from the year and I’ll tell you what… Their wedding was even more amazing! Case and Dan chose a gorgeous little summer camp in the mountains of Vermont’s Upper Valley…Their closest friends and family joined them for the weekend and stayed in the adorable cottages (more properly called bunkhouses) on the camp’s property. It was Camp Akeela’s first time hosting a wedding and let me tell you, the owners/staff/cooks etc, were all phenomenal and went out of their way to make sure Case and Dan’s day/weekend was simply amazing!!! And it was!!

You hear the term DIY a lot these days… This wedding took this term to a whole new level. Case and Dan worked together to create their gorgeous invitations, not only did they designed them but they actually used a laser cutter to create them themselves. One of Case’s passions is metal smithing and she makes gorgeous jewelry, you should definitely check out her work on her website Flame and File. Case made her and Dan’s wedding bands, her bridesmaids bracelets, her gorgeous blue and gold headpiece as well as the groomsmen’s lapel pins… Seriously, amazing right? The beautiful orbs hanging from the apple trees at their ceremony site… You guess it, she made them out of hot glue. Oh and Dan… well he spent hours designing and crafting Case’s beautiful engagement ring, all the while somehow keeping it a secret from her. You get the point, they are a pretty amazing couple huh?! We thought so and we absolutely loved being a part of their wedding day which was such an amazing, fun, intimate celebration!

Oh, did I mention that the summer camp had a big air bounce and canoes, these two adventurers were all over it! I can honestly say, I’ve never seen a bride in a canoe on the lake or on a giant trampoline but IT WAS A BLAST and we want more of it!!! I’m still waiting for a couple who’s up for cliff jumping or rock climbing on their wedding day… I’ll just keep on dreaming…

And with that, I’ll leave you with the images… We hope you enjoy them as much as we enjoyed creating them!

When Megan first contacted us about 2 years ago about possibly photographing her wedding at this gorgeous summer camp in the mountains of WNC (right outside of Asheville NC), we were ecstatic! She and Andrew lived in Boston but her family was from NC and she spent many summers attending a camp about 20 minutes from where I (Ariel) grew up! On top of that….She and Andrew lived in Boston… Matt and I were at the time living in the Northeast and the idea of moving south and becoming Asheville wedding photographers was just percolating in the back of our minds. Let’s just say… Everything was meant to be and we were thrilled when Megan and Andrew asked us to be a part of their wedding day! We photographed their engagement session at a gorgeous park in Boston the summer they hired us and then, just a couple weeks before their wedding in Hendersonville NC we settled our family in our new home in the South!

Megan and Andrew set the bar pretty darn high being our first wedding as NC Wedding Photographers. Camp Ton a Wandah was the perfect backdrop for their rustic summer camp wedding in the mountains. The details were stunning anywhere you turned…. Megan and Andrew’s friends and family traveled in from all over the United States (and some flew in from other countries) to spend the weekend celebrating with them!!!

We had a blast capturing their wedding and we hope you enjoy some of our favorite moments from the day!!

Even if you don’t want to see each other before the ceremony, consider giving yourselves a couple minutes to read cards together around a corner… Or, simply hold hands… We call them no peek first looks. It makes for adorable pictures and has a huge impact on bride and grooms nerves 🙂

This gorgeous mountain engagement session was one of the highlights of our season (don’t get me wrong…. we had a lot of highlights and are so excited to share more of them with you soon… but this was certainly in the top 10!)! We always love it when couples are up for something different, when Case mentioned hiking followed by a boat that Dan built when he was in high school we were hooked!! We all met up just a little before sunrise and ventured (in the dark) to the top of a mountain to catch the sun coming up! Following our time on the mountain we found a gorgeous lake where Case and Dan showed off their excellent rowing skills! We had such a blast with these two during their outdoor adventure engagement session!

Now that we are living in gorgeous Asheville NC, we’re looking for many more adventurous engagement sessions exploring the mountains of WNC!
