“I am speechless at these photos. I sent them to our families, and everyone has said the same thing. You have such an eye and a talent for capturing the moment, the energy, the emotions, the natural movement (especially Rupert’s zoomies), the lines in the horizon and trees and mountains. These are beyond what I could have dreamt of. I am so grateful for you. I know Dan and I (and our families) will treasure these photos forever. Thank you thank you thank you!  Rupert also wants me to share his thanks for including him and being so patient, kind, and gentle to him”

– Natalie

 

A Cozy Winter Wedding in the mountains of Asheville at the Vineyards at Betty’s Creek with Natalie and Dan 

The Vineyards at Betty’s Creek Wedding

Natalie and Dan held their gorgeous winter wedding in the Blue Ridge Mountains outside of Asheville at the Vineyards at Betty’s Creek this month. The Vineyards at Betty’s Creek is one of the very best wedding venues around, and I am always so happy to photograph here! 

A Charlotte Couple’s Destination Wedding in Asheville

For their wedding, Natalie and Dan traveled from their home in Charlotte, North Carolina to get married in the mountains. Their families and friends also traveled from near and far for a cozy weekend together in the scenic blue ridge. 

Their Cozy Winter Wedding Theme

Keeping with the vibe of their cozy winter wedding, Natalie and Dan’s planner Smash Events decorated the ceremony and reception in luxurious swags of evergreen and warm candles. Each seat was set with a beautiful fig salad to greet their guests to the reception. 

An Outdoor Winter Wedding Ceremony

Due to the timing of their winter wedding and the shorter days, I had advised Natalie and Dan to plan for their ceremony in an open, unshaded area of the Vineyards at Betty’s Creek property. Ultimately, they decided on the patio in front of the beautiful Lodge and it worked out absolutely gorgeous for their ceremony!

Rupert the Adorable Goldendoodle

The ceremony and its sweet moments were absolutely breathtaking. But- I think we’d all be lying if we said that Natalie and Dan’s golden doodle Rupert didn’t steal the show at least a little bit! Natalie and Dan were smart and hired a dog nanny to help care for him in the times they weren’t available. But as soon as Rupert got to see his mom and dad, he got so excited and got the zoomies! We did a “First Walk” with Rupert now that Natalie and Dan were officially married and you can tell the he is just SO happy! 

A Beautiful Pink Winter Sunset

As cocktail hour blended into the reception, all of their guests were treated to the most magnificent winter sunset! Being North Carolina, there wasn’t snow (although I would have loved that!). Yet, being able to stand outside in short sleeves and enjoy this was certainly lovely. 

Their Rockin’ Vineyards at Betty’s Creek Wedding Reception

Once the reception started, their amazing live band rocked it out till the end of the night when Natalie and Dan were cheered out to the after party through a lone line of sparklers!

Congratulations to Natalie and Dan! And congratulations to Rupert on his parents getting married. It was such a joy to be able to share in this beautiful day with you all!!!
