jessica & ben are married!

i’m not sure if i’ve mentioned this once or 500 times (most likely closer to 500?;) but asheville, north carolina is just the most amazing place. it is also responsible for some of the most wonderful, adventurous, talented people we have had the pleasure of meeting- like jessica & ben. these two met in sixth grade, officially started dating in high school, and since then have shared countless adventures as best friends who happen to also be very obviously in love. perfect. :) i first met jessica in 2008- she was a bridesmaid in one of the first weddings matt and i ever photographed! one year later, jessica was again a bridesmaid in another wedding we photographed so suffice it to say, she was pretty familiar with our work when it came time to planning her own wedding day. :) we are so honored she contacted us and it was so fun to see so many familiar faces as i flipped through these beautiful images matt captured of her wedding day. but my very favorite part was seeing jessica & ben interact through these images. i’ve never met ben but i am just amazed by how these images make me feel like i have. he and jessica both wear their happiness in their brilliant smiles and sparkling eyes and seeing the way they look at one another makes me excited for their future together. here are a few of our favorites from their wedding day- be sure to click through to the slideshow to see more!

the morning of jessica & ben’s wedding day dawned with a steady rain. despite the weather, jessica & ben were determined to have their wedding on the beautiful overlook they’ve imagined since the day they secured the nc arboretum. they stuck to their guns and the rain stopped just in time. :) i like their style.

matt took this image just as jessica & ben reached the end of their recessional- it is one of my favorite images ever:

this next image is of our friends bonnie & david- but mostly, it’s of dave’s sweet tattoo. ;)

jessica & ben, congratulations! we are so happy for you two- and what a beautiful celebration!

    sara & tim are married!

    i met sara for the first time the morning of her wedding day. she was warm and welcoming and vibrantly happy- talking excitedly with her bridesmaids and close family members as she made final preparations for the ceremony. as i photographed i was so struck by sara’s energy- she’s passionate, confident and fun- truly one of those people who lights up a room. extraordinary. since matt & i didn’t have a chance to meet these new yorkers before their wedding day, i couldn’t help but wonder who in the world is the guy who gets to marry this tiny powerhouse?? tim, that’s who. lucky guy. :) but i have to say, if anyone is the perfect match for sara, it’s tim. he enjoys every moment as it passes, he is thoughtful and aware of those around him, he can be silly, sweet and interested all at the same time. these two are just perfect together. what a joy it was to spend a day capturing such a wonderful couple!

      lindsay & ryan’s feature!

      i decided that this gloomy, rainy day deserved a boost- so i’m sharing this lovely feature of lindsay & ryan‘s fabulous wedding day! matt shot this one himself, about one year ago. from the minute i saw the first image i knew it would be one of my favorite weddings ever. lindsay & ryan worked with the very talented juli vaughn and created a day full of fun, color, energy and love- what a beautiful celebration it was! and thank you so much for the feature, ruffled!
