Grove Park Inn Wedding in Asheville, NC

These two were married at the Grove Park Inn, in Asheville NC.  It was a wedding full of their dearest family and friends and lots charm. The bride got ready with her two bridesmaids who were some of the biggest supports I have ever seen. They had this girls back! Even in the fact of an almost hour long buttoning process for the dress itself… yes. The dress fit perfectly but those little loops for the buttons may have been the wrong size button loops. I swear it was like threading a needle for each one AND a crochet hook was no help. She even went to her first look without all the buttons complete. She wanted to see her man… buttons or no buttons!

Their first look was precious, especially because of how she looked at him the whole time. She was beyond enamoured with him. It was a joy to witness. Afterwards we feverishly finished the buttons before their ceremony overlooking the Blue Ridge Mountains. It was a breath-taking view! I wish I could transport all of you there right now for a look! What followed was a fun reception with hilarious toasts, a rowdy photo booth and tasty treats. All in all… a great wedding to be a part of. We have the best job.
