fall wedding at the farm at the old edwards inn pintopinterest What fun we had documenting Sarah and Matt’s beautiful fall wedding at The Farm at the Old Edwards Inn. Friends and family of Sarah and Matt’s traveled in from all over the United States and beyond. Sarah got ready in the big, beautiful farmhouse on the property with her mom and bridesmaids. We were thrilled to do a first look and have some time to photograph the wedding party as well as bride and groom portraits before their stunning ceremony in the orchard. Sarah’s father officiated a very sweet wedding ceremony among the apple trees as guests circled around them. Following their “I dos”, guests retreated to have cocktails on the patios surrounding the pavilion. A fabulous reception commenced shortly after with beautiful details, dinner, dancing and a stunning sparkler exit…. We were there to capture it all!

Matt and I absolutely fell in love with the area surrounding the Old Edwards Inn… It’s a photographer and outdoor enthusiast’s dream! We can’t wait to return to Highlands to explore more… the farm at old edwards inn wedding photopintopinterest the farm at old edwards inn wedding photopintopinterest Sarah and Matt worked hard on the sign above, which shows how far their guests traveled to celebrate their wedding!!! the farm at old edwards inn wedding detailspintopinterest Sarah chose to carry a stunning brooch bouquet… With gold undertones, it was so beautiful for a fall wedding! the farm at old edwards inn wedding photopintopinterest the farm at old edwards inn wedding photopintopinterest Gold Converses?!

asheville vineyard wedding detailspintopinterest It’s Wednesday guys… This Asheville wedding photographer is going to share some of our favorite alternatives to traditional seating charts that we’ve seen over the last few years! We love to photograph weddings that have unique twists – basically we believe anything different or nontraditional rocks!!! When it comes to planning your wedding, focusing on the details is a great way to add your own spin on things!! Today I’ve compiled a list of our favorite alternative seating plans! zama beach club wedding details pintopinterest Melissa and Ray’s Zama Beach Club wedding on beautiful Isla Mujeres had the most amazing beach details. Their “message in a bottle” seating assignments had a very destination wedding feel! With a smaller guest count and just 3 tables…. everyone enjoyed meandering under the lanterns to find the bottle with their name on it! asheville luxury wedding detailspintopinterest Gia and Michael’s elegant mountain wedding had (still to this day) some of the most beautiful details I’ve ever seen. Their florist created these beautiful rustic yet elegant seating tags strung in birch branches… Guests found the tag with their names as they strolled from cocktail hour into a magnificent 5-tiered Sperry Tent. asheville estate wedding details pintopinterest These key tags hung on a vintage wood backdrop were adorable! On the tables in the reception tent were corresponding door handles for guests to find. old edwards inn wedding details pintopinterest Sarah and Matt’s fall wedding at the Old Edwards Inn in the mountains of WNC had paper airplanes folded with guests names and table number. For a destination or travel-themed wedding I thought this was perfect! cute asheville wedding details pintopinterest These custom-cut wooden hearts with the guests names on the front side and table number on the back were so, so cute! Guests could take this home at the end of the night as a momento! I also loved the way these were presented in a beautiful wooden box with moss and birch wood. beautiful flower seating arrangement for asheville wedding pintopinterest This was one of the most beautiful + practical ways for seating your guests. As cocktail hour ended, guests found the vase of flowers with their name attached and carried it to their table. A seating chart, a variety of decoration for the tables and a favor for your friends and family to take home… all in one! So pretty too! birch tree asheville wedding detailpintopinterest Simple, rustic cards placed on beautiful handcut birch logs made the perfect seating arrangement for Rachel and Michael’s candlelit winter wedding. asheville wedding seating chart detail pintopinterest For a wedding with lots of kids, these pinwheels with names and a table number on them would be a huge hit. It’s fun, slightly whimsical and you can get them in any color combination you wish to complement your wedding colors!

tulum mexico wedding photographerpintopinterest Those who know us know we absolutely love a good adventure… Photographing destination weddings like our most recent – Melissa and Ray’s Zama Beach Club Wedding – have led to some of our most favorite adventures together! The image above was taken in beautiful Tulum. The day after one of our weddings in Mexico’s Riviera Maya, Matt and I had a few hours to explore… We took the local bus down the coastline to Tulum. We explored the famous Tulum Ruins and walked down the road to Tulum Beach. Man, what a beach! I think our kids could spend hours happily playing in the warm crystal blue waters. We look forward to our next adventure to beautiful Mexico! Thanks so much to our amazing brides and grooms who have had us join them for their amazing destination weddings!

rough ridge engagement photopintopinterest Last weekend I traveled from Asheville over to Blowing Rock area on the Blue Ridge Parkway for Cathie and Tod’s adventurous engagement session!! It’s safe to say we had a blast and absolutely cannot wait to document their wedding next month at the gorgeous Oskar Blues REEB Ranch! Being avid mountain bikers (honestly, avid is an understatement…these two are seriously bad ass) and all-around outdoor adventurers, we wanted to incorporate their love for bikes and the mountains in their images.

We started out the session near the town of Blowing Rock at Julian Price Memorial Park. They played on bikes and I took photos!!! Once we took some pictures there, we headed down the Blue Ridge Parkway to a stunning rocky outcropping called Rough Ridge!!! Oh my gosh, the views… it is so beautiful up there!! I can’t wait to return there for another session or even just for some adventuring with the family!

A huge thank you to Cathie and Tod who were game to explore some new places and create some awesome images together!!! I can not wait to see you guys again in just a few weeks for your wedding!!! blowing rock engagement photographerpintopinterest julian price memorial park engagementpintopinterest The light up in the mountains was just beautiful that evening! mountain biking engagement photo in asheville pintopinterest Playing… out of my element shooting bikes, but these two humored me and rode back and forth so I could play! biking engagement photospintopinterest biking engagement session in asheville pintopinterest Can you tell these two are fun to be around?!? rough ridge engagement at sunset pintopinterest The light up at the top of Rough Ridge was beautiful but fading quickly on the other side of Grandfather Mountain. pintopinterest rough ridge engagement session by asheville photographerpintopinterest We made the best of the remaining light we had up in the mountains! romantic adventure engagement session pintopinterest Love the image above… They warned me how hard it was to get serious/romantic images of the two of them. I love their laughter and enthusiasm for each other… rough ridge engagement photo at sunsetpintopinterest AMW Studios – an Asheville wedding photography studio run by Ariel and Matt – We are located in the Foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains and available for destination wedding photography worldwide… We specialize in creating modern + dynamic imagery for adventurous couples.
