Hilary and Meade

Hello everyone! I wanted to post pictures from Hilary and Meade's wedding back in June at the Grove Park Inn. Corey McNabb took amazing photographs, so I had to post as many as I could! After the wedding, Corey met them in the Bahamas to take pictures of them on their honeymoon. Such a luxury to have professional pictures of such a significant vacation! :) I loved working with Hilary and Meade...they were such a fun couple! Enjoy!

Here is a link where you can watch a slide show of some of the pictures of Hilary and Meade's wedding:

Thank you, Corey, for all of these pictures!!

Catching you up

It seems like it has been a while since I have posted a blog, so I wanted to at least let you all know what has been going on. Last week, we 'baby'sat our friend's (Pauline and Jeremy) dog. This is not really a dog, more like a horse! His name is Rufus and he is a Great Dane. Although he is HUGE, he is a big baby...such a sweet dog, and our dog loved playing with him! I think my husband wanted to keep him and not give him back! Here are a few pictures...

This is my favorite picture! Shows you how big Rufus is...makes Toni look like an ant!

Rufus slept on Toni's extra large dog bed at night...and he still didn't fit!

Rufus's cage was a fun place to hang out...

Awww...Rufus has a girlfriend! :)

This past Saturday, I had two weddings going on. Hopefully I will have pictures of them soon. I will post them as soon as I do! My assistant, Tere, took over the one at the Grove Park Inn. I heard that the bride, Jennifer, was absolutely beautiful! I wish I could have seen her!

Jamie and George were married in Greenville, South Carolina at the chapel located on the campus of Furman University. The reception followed at the Sawmill. A gorgeous wedding for a perfect couple! Again, I'll post pictures as soon as I can!

On Sunday, my husband and I left for Edisto Island, along with my brother and his wife. My husband's parents rented a house there for the whole week, but we only could stay for 2 full days. :( Here are some pictures for you...

Ahhh...the beach...

Jonathan, me, Laura and Troy

My in-laws (Drake, showing off his six-pack, and Sandy), Jonathan's Aunt Marsha and Uncle Donnie. Uncle Donnie cooked for us every night, and he should own a restaurant! Yummy! Thank you all for such a wonderful and relaxing time! I am SO blessed to call them family.

Wedding in Italy and more pictures!

I have a new project that I am working on for a lovely bride and groom, Bill and Jennie. They have hired me to plan their wedding in Italy. Very exciting! I can't think of a more romantic place to be married (besides Asheville, of course)! So far, I am having a blast planning this one. It is going to be a enchanting December wedding in Florence. The city will be beautiful this time of year with all of the Christmas lights and decor! I will definitely want pictures of this experience...

I have received some fabulous pictures from Audrey Goforth of Kelly and Brad's wedding. They were married at the Grove Park Inn Country Club in June. Such a down-to-earth couple, and so very in love! I really enjoyed working with them. Take a look...

Brad trying to relax with the guys before the ceremony

The picture shows how Brad proposed...a question in the sky! Jars of raspberry preserves were given to each guest as they left the reception...

I love this picture! Kelly and Brad did not want to see each other before the ceremony, but they wanted to at least hold hands. So sweet! And they didn't peek! :)

A beautiful flower girl...

Future and past weddings...

This Saturday I met with one of my brides, Amy, to discuss details regarding her wedding coming up at the Inn on Biltmore Estate next May. Her mother and father were also there, not only to talk about wedding details, but to watch their other daughter (Selby) participate in a horse show. I am jealous of such talent! Amy and her family are so close to one another, and this is wonderful to sit back and watch. I feel so blessed to be part of their very special day! Here is a picture of Amy and Mike...such a gorgeous couple!

I received some photographs from Ryan Bumgarner that I wanted to share with you. These were from Janie and John's wedding on Father's Day! The wedding took place in Asheville at Homewood. This place holds a special place in my heart since this is where I was married!

Melissa's Gourmet Desserts...I don't see how she does it!

Do you think they were having a good time? :)

This young one was the life of the party!!
