Lisa and Nathaniel got married on the most gorgeous late summer’s day at one of the most beautiful venues in Western North Carolina. Their Asheville wedding was as perfect as anyone could ask for. From the start both Lisa and Nathaniel were adamant that they wanted their wedding to be a reflection of their community, Christ, and the Church. Everything, from the decor, to the desserts, to the hair and makeup, was contributed by the various and talented friends and family. From the start of the day to the finish, both of them were so relaxed and excited, and the day flew by smoothly and beautifully. I’m pretty sure Nathaniel didn’t stop smiling all day! It was such an honor to be able to capture this day for two of my dearest friends. Thanks so much to Amelia Ward of Amelia M. Photography for taking over post-ceremony so I could party and dance the night away with my roommate and her new husband!
Lisa wore her mother’s veil and a gorgeous two-piece dress that just took my breath away. Before the ceremony, she and Nathaniel chose to do a first look with a twist; they wrote personal vows to each other and, opting for more traditional ones during the ceremony, read them aloud to one another moments before walking down the aisle. I felt so privileged to have been witness to such a personal, intimate, and beautiful moment. These two love each other so well.
Lisa and Nathaniel would love to thank and recognize all the wonderful friends and family from their community who came together to make this day possible. Hopefully I got everyone’s contributions correct but if I forgot anyone please forgive me!
