May Wedding

There are not enough words to describe Katie and Jeremy...they are so intelligent, so much fun, out going, and definitely loved by many. They treated their guests to an amazing weekend. They held a fabulous rehearsal dinner for all of their guests at On Broadway in downtown Asheville. The next day, they started off their wedding day with a football game! Check this out...

Then the ceremony was held at the historic Grove Park Inn on the Sammon's Balcony overlooking the mountains. I loved the music they had for their ceremony...a jazz trio and a Gospel choir. The choir sang 'Lean on Me' as Katie walked down the aisle, then they rejoiced with 'Amen' once they were married. It was incredible!

The ceremony was followed by a reception on the Mountain View Terrace, and dinner and dancing inside the Skyline Room. One of my favorite moments was when Katie surprised her guests by singing 'Natural Woman'. I had no idea that she had such an incredible voice....even their band, Livin' Large, was amazed! :)

Thank you to Katy Cook who provided me with all these wonderful photos...I thoroughly enjoyed working with you Katy!!

Look at her sing! I wish you all could have heard her!!

Wedding and Honeymoon in Italy

I am so excited to bring you pictures from Jennie and Bill's wedding in Italy. I had the pleasure of planning their wedding and honeymoon all they had to do was show up and enjoy their time together! First they flew in to Rome for several days and then took a train to Florence for the remainder of their trip and their ceremony. They were married at the beautiful Villa di Maiano, where they are surrounded with amazing views of the city. After their ceremony, they were taken back to their exquisite hotel, Hotel Regency, for a romantic dinner at Relais Le Jardin. Bill and Jennie are so in love, and this is portrayed in the pictures taken by Italian photographer, Elisabetta Gazziero.

A violinist serenaded them throughout their wedding ceremony...

I love this moment...

I am so thrilled for this wonderful couple!!

A warm thank you to my new friend, Valentina, for all your help in making this occasion so special for Bill and Jennie...
