Shane + Ashleigh Wedding Reception at the Biltmore!

Ashleigh and Shane’s wedding reception was one of the most fun and energetic receptions I’ve ever seen. The music was perfect, everyone was hyped and having the time of their lives! Not only was it fun, there were so many beautiful little flourishes everywhere that were so much fun to photograph. It’s obvious so much care and planning went into making this wedding a success.

The Biltmore Estate is such a beautiful venue that once you go, it’s hard to leave! I can’t wait to go back there sometime and have time to explore and take more photographs.

Wedding {Nicole and James} Myrtle Beach, SC

Nicole and James got married by the ocean in sunny Myrtle Beach, SC this June.  I was so excited to document their wedding day, as I’ve known Nicole and her sisters for years from high school, PLUS the fact that Nicole is one of the sweetest, most chill girls I’ve ever met.  She and James are ridiculously, adorably in love, which of course I always love! :)

How cool and chill is Nicole?  Well, I’ll tell you! ;)  Her dress was in her mom’s hotel room–where the sprinklers went off in the middle of the night, soaking her dress.  Her family tried to keep it from her, but finally told her; did Nicole freak out? (I think I would!) NOPE! She just asked if they had been able to get it cleaned, and when they told her they had, she just said “ok, as long as it’s ok, no big deal.”

Not only are they super duper in love with each other, but they’re genuinely some of the nicest people you’ll ever meet. I don’t think I’ve ever had a bride and groom so insistent that I and Stephanie take a break and eat (and check in later to be sure we did!) and to take home a big bag of candy from their sweet (no pun intended) candy bar!  Ok, I’ll quit the gushing and get on to the photos…! ;)

Jackson’s first trip to Biltmore Estate!

Last weekend, I had the pleasure of photographing a beautiful wedding for a beautiful couple (Ashleigh and Shane; a blog to come next week on them!) at the Biltmore Estate.  Since Jackson’s still such a little guy and I wasn’t ready for him to stay home while I was away for the weekend, he and Jay came with me and we stayed at the lovely Inn at Biltmore.  While I was away on Saturday, the boys had fun at Antler Village and walking the area around the Inn.  On our way out Sunday, it was looking to be questionable weather, so instead of taking him out on the grounds, we just made a quickie stop in front of the house for a snapshot photo op, and again very quickly in a pretty little bamboo grove on the grounds.  Here’s a few snapshots from his first trip to Biltmore! :)

Ashleigh and Shane’s Wedding Ceremony at the Biltmore Estate!

I was so excited to visit the Biltmore Estate for the first time this weekend! The entire area is simply breathtaking, and the little courtyard where the ceremony was held is so cute! Luck was definitely on our side as far as the weather goes. Some rain clouds threatened to ambush the wedding ceremony, but it didn’t rain at all the whole night!

Shane actually proposed to Ashleigh at the Biltmore as well, and he planned it so that Christi was there to take pictures! So romantic, right? You can see their whole engagement session here!

The photos from their reception will be up next week, so keep an eye out.
