Remember that trip to the Northeast I mentioned, well the day after Katie and Craig’s wedding we headed to nearby Chatham MA to document Lisa and James’ amazing wedding at Eastward Ho Country Club. While just a bit cold, Lisa and James were graced with perfectly sunny skies… A gorgeous fall day. It was our first time photographing a wedding at the gorgeous Eastward Ho Country Club, we hope to be back!

Lisa was an absolutely gorgeous bride and her and James together are the perfect couple.

We had a blast document their wedding day and we hope you enjoy the pictures!

Shortly after AMW Studios move south to Asheville, NC we took a trip back to the northeast to document a few awesome weddings. Katie and Craig’s Cape Cod wedding at the always gorgeous Wychmere Beach Club kicked off our time up north. I knew their wedding was going to be amazing and ever since we met up with these two for their spring engagement session in Boston I’d been looking forward to it! Katie was one of the most relaxed, go with the flow brides… despite the fact that it was cold, windy and threatening rain she was all smiles when I showed up to photograph her and her girls getting ready!

Despite the coldy, windy weather we were able to make it outside for the images of the wedding party as well as some awesome sunset pictures with just Katie and Craig! Their fall beach wedding was an absolute pleasure to photograph and as always we loved getting to shoot at one of our favorite weddings venues on Cape Cod; Longwood Events – Wychmere Beach Club

gorgeous tree surrounding recently married bride and groom pintopinterest

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!

bride and groom holding hands in front of gorgeous red barn pintopinterest

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!
