My blogging definitely took a backseat in 2018 and hopefully I’ll eventually catch up with some of the amazing weddings we shot last year! But I wanted to kick off 2019 with a recent wedding we did at Chestnut Ridge in Canton, NC! We are blessed to be preferred vendors at Chestnut Ridge so we photograph a lot of weddings there with the most amazing vendors! It’s absolutely breathtaking and one of the most beautiful venues in the Asheville area! The second weekend in May we photograph Morgan and Zack’s wedding! Morgan and Zack are two of the sweetest people and they are clearly loved by so many!

The morning of their wedding called for rain and it was certainly a little bit of a bummer for Morgan and Zack but they didn’t let it ruin their day. It’s actually quite amazing… because their engagement session and Morgan’s Bridal session both had rain in the forecast – like LOTS of rain — well, at BOTH of those shoots the sun came out of nowhere and we had gorgeous lighting the entire shoot. I can’t help but laugh because it’s still amazing to me how beautiful every single day turned out to be. God is good! I truly knew that no matter what the forecast held on their wedding day, it would turn out to be beautiful & the sunshine would appear. Sure enough, about 30 minutes prior to their ceremony the skies opened up, the sun came out and the most gorgeous fog surrounded the mountains. I’ve never seen Chestnut Ridge look more beautiful!!

Morgan and Zack said vows in the chapel at Chestnut Ridge in front of their closest friends and family. The evening followed by a gorgeous reception designed by Mingle Events with florals by Two Buds and a Blossom. Morgan and her bridesmaids were stunning with their incredible makeup by Powder me Pretty! I can never forget the delicious food from Catering by Corey! The night was filled with fun, laughter and lots of dancing! I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I do! We love you Mr. and Mrs. Sawyer!
