This gorgeous couple shared a beautiful summer Saturday with family and friends while saying “I do!” at Highland Brewing Company in Asheville! Their day was filled with gorgeous local wildflowers, top notch attire, delicious local food and beer, and the love of family and friends!

I must start by saying that I LOVED spending time with Natalie and Brandon, and capturing their big day! They are an incredibly fun and easy going couple, and their friends and family compliment them very well! It was a blast to be with them on their wedding day, right down to Natalie’s grandfather standing behind me and giving ME bunny ears while I was taking photos! This group was a hoot and I loved every minute of it!

To start our fun day together I met Natalie and her family at their rental house in Asheville for detail shots and photos of Natalie getting into her dress. While everyone was finishing their details of getting ready, I stepped into Natalie’s room to get her dress and was blown away! Her beautiful wedding gown was hanging from a door frame and looked like a piece of art, right there where it hung! I was instantly so very excited to photograph it, along with her accessories! As she took a minute to pull out her shoes, jewelry, and Brandon’s boutonniere, I could hardly wait to get shooting! Everything was so very beautiful! 

When we arrived at Highland Brewing’s Event Center we all walked in to a beautifully decorated space! Natalie’s mother designed a pipe and drape backdrop that transformed the space immensely! All of the florals provided by Carolina Flowers, the handmade centerpiece boxes, and other decor were perfectly set and ready for guests to arrive. 

While guests were arriving I took Brandon to the rooftop and got him set in place for Natalie’s arrival to their first look. By the stars aligning, the rooftop bar with views of the Blue Ridge Mountains was closed and we had the place to ourselves! When Natalie walked out of the elevator hallway, she tapped Brandon on the shoulder, and he turned around to see his beautiful bride! His expression was priceless, and uttered the few short sentences, “You look beautiful!” and “I love you!” It was the sweetest first look!! 

Throughout the ceremony and reception, Brandon and Natalie spent their time involving family and friends in all that they did. From a special addition to the ceremony of all guests agreeing to support them in their marriage, to taking time to have photographs captured with all of their guests, they truly did an amazing job including everyone they love in their big day! 

Congratulations, Natalie + Brandon! Thank you for asking me to capture this amazing day!

Update: Natalie + Brandon's wonderful review on Wedding Wire:
"Great experience, beautiful photos! Jessica captured both our engagement and wedding photos, and we could not have asked for a better experience. Our wedding was a destination wedding, and she helped make the entire process easier. She was always willing to offer up vendor suggestions and even helped me find a last-minute hair stylist for our engagement photos. When our engagement photos were almost rained out, she was flexible with timing and location so we could still have them done while we were in town. Her prices are very reasonable and she even sent us gifts and notes throughout the process :) The pictures themselves are beautiful and we love the album she had made for us as well!"
