Ashley and John's Wedding at the Crest Center

What a fun wedding this was! Ashley and John were married on Saturday, January 17th at Central United Methodist Church in Asheville. From there guests moved to the Crest Center Pavilion for the reception. The reception was decorated beautifully with iron work and candlelight provided by the bride's family. Both the groom's mother and the bride's mother brought their own wedding dresses and had them displayed as guest's entered the Pavilion. What a sweet touch! Here are some fantastic photos, by Aaron Imaging, of Ashley and John's special day...

Brown's Floral Design did a great job with the flowers!

Ashley and John both went to NC State University. John played football and Ashley was on the Dance cute! :) What a great cake by Edible Art out of Raleigh!

There were a lot of dance team members there...and they all entertained us! I am an NC State Dance Team alumni, so it was very tempting to get out there with them...but, I hid quietly in the corner! :) :)

The band, Band of Oz, was fantastic!! I just loved them! They kept people dancing all night long!

Rehearsal Dinner at the Riverbend Barn on the Biltmore Estate

I can't believe I haven't posted these pictures yet! Amy and Mike were married at the Inn on Biltmore Estate back in May of 2008, and the day was captured perfectly by Corey McNabb. You can check out the blog post of their wedding here. But, the night before, Amy and Mike had a fun, laid back rehearsal dinner at the Riverbend Barn, also located on the Biltmore Estate. The atmosphere was so relaxed, and everyone enjoyed good food, good company, and fantastic bluegrass by Balsam Range. My brother and best friend, Troy Tolle, took photographs of the evening. Please enjoy!

We had bandannas for all of the guests, which also served as their place cards.

Amy, her dad, and her sister...beautiful family!

This was a family that loved horses, so all the tables were named after different horses...of course, they have to have one that all the kids loved! :)
