One of the most delightful parts of my job is following the journey’s and successes of our Golden Horseshoe couples beyond their wedding days. If you follow our blog (or have our brochure, on which beautiful Diana is our cover model!) you might recognize this dynamic duo (almost a trio!). I have had the honor […]
“Have you ever been to Louisiana?” the father of the bride asked me with a grin. He then proceeded to scroll through his camera roll, and pop up a video from the dashboard of his truck as it slowly made its way down a snow covered road. To say that everything came together in the […]
I was so excited to meet our Bride Isabelle (and her sweet groom Charles too!). Isabelle and Charles booked their elopement with us from afar, and we didn’t get to officially meet in person until their wedding day. We planned details back and forth over email, and during the process I felt like we were […]
Kendra and Christopher were married amidst a snowy winter wonderland in the beautiful Blue Ridge mountains. Their Golden Horseshoe elopement was simply magical, and the joy that filled our venue that day was simply unforgettable! Boy, do these two know how to light up a room! My cheeks practically hurt from smiling so much, as […]
We were so thrilled to begin our 2021 wedding season on Saturday, January 2 with the most incredible day for the most incredible bride and groom. After navigating the twists and turns of trying to plan a wedding during a pandemic, our bride Trisha and her groom Oliver decided to switch gears from their original […]
It has certainly been an unforgettable year. And we closed it out with an unforgettable couple! Elisabeth and Jeremy shared their wedding day with us on December 13, 2020. Our bride and groom choose to hold a very intimate, private ceremony for their family of 5. Elisabeth began the day with hair and makeup in […]
You know how they talk about a person who can “light up a room” – well this was our gorgeous bride Sherry, to a tee! The mountains were putting on their full November show, with scudding clouds and a brisk breeze, but Sherry arrived like a ray of sunshine…really funny sunshine, is that a thing?…warm, […]
A “monopoly hat”, a tiny tea laid out for fairies to enjoy, candy as far as the eye could see, lush flowers draped over sparkling lanterns…everywhere you turned at Allison and Thom’s wedding day, there was something delightful to catch your eye. If I could choose a superpower, it would definitely be to time travel. […]
There is something so special about uncovering and hanging up a bridal gown in the dressing room…it makes it really start to feel like a wedding day! Everyone ooohs and ahhs over the dress and is able to take a moment to truly appreciate all the thought and love and planning that has gone into […]
There is just something special about high school sweethearts! I was instantly charmed when I met Andrea and Michael early in the year, and finally after lots of waiting, their October wedding day finally arrived! This sweet and savvy young couple have been busy in the past few months, and just finalized the purchase of […]
Some days are so special, and so much fun to be a part of…and Shiny and Trevor’s wedding day was definitely one of those days!!! This gorgeous couple was as sweet and fun as they were beautiful! And they were joined by a very special guest for their intimate elopement – their golden retriever “Link”. […]
Our wonderful couple Shannon and Brian celebrated their wedding day surrounded by friends and family and beautiful touches of fall! Their Champagne and Eggplant decor, was enhanced by two of Shannon’s favorite things – flickering candles and warm, cozy scents. She created many of the decorative touches including her beautiful centerpieces and the fabric and […]
It’s always fun to go back to the office and look through the photo’s I’ve just shot, and I’ll admit, I might have gasped a couple times when I looked through these – our lovely couple Geyse and Erick are simply drop. dead. gorgeous. This amazing couple met in South Carolina but both were born […]
We loved every moment of Janet and Jack’s intimate wedding celebration! Our Bride and Groom were joined by their children for a private wedding ceremony followed by cupcakes, sparkling apple cider and a mountain top adventure (if you are wondering how to scale rocks in high heels – Janet is the person to go to!!!) […]
Are you ready…because GORGEOUS does not even begin to describe our radiant bride Mary (kind, sweet and humble too!). She was surrounded by the most amazing group of women – deeply caring, and encouraging helpers and family who made the day even more special. Her groom Kevin looked so handsome, and many guests arrived dressed […]
I was so excited for our July 2016 couple Liz and Allen, when they contacted me to let me know they were expecting (!) and to ask if I would shoot their maternity photos. I already knew that I adored this sweet couple, and absolutely loved shooting their wedding photos last year – you can […]
