Allison and Eric had a beautiful wedding at the Omni Grove Park Inn. There were many things that I loved about this wedding but these stood out to me the most…

1. The color palate was one that I would use for my own wedding. Soft pastels in their reception area were truly awesome.
2. After they married, they exited and had a moment of SHEER HAPPINESS! I love that they took a few minutes to take the ceremony in. You can view these sweet moments here on their custom montage… http://allisonanderic.realitiesphotography.com
3. They had a sushi bar!
4. The houpa was important to them, so I was excited that they let me pull off some lighting fun with them later in the evening.
5. The band kept everyone dancing all night long.

One of my favorite things about documenting weddings is getting to know the couples I photograph. I really connected with this couple and had fun documenting their intimate wedding at the Inn on Biltmore Estate.
Some of my favorite memories from the day…

1. There were only 14 people at their intimate wedding. It was all about the bond among the couple and their families.
2. The view from the Inn on Biltmore, where their ceremony took place, provided us with the perfect mountain backdrop.
3. I almost cried when the groom was saying his vows.
4. While riding in the car together, traveling to my favorite spots to shoot, my SIRIUS XM played a song from Al’s band- moe. Surreal moment to have the guitarist sitting in your backseat while listening to his music.
5. This wedding was full of real moments that unfolded so seamlessly.

This wedding was full of laughter and fun moments! This was a particularly special weekend at High Hampton because they began filming Dirty Dancing 2 there after the weekend was over. It was fitting that the band played ‘I had the Time of My Life,’ from the movie as their last song. Some of the moments that stand out to me…

1. The groom gave custom sunglasses by Red’s Outfitters, a local company in Atlanta where the couple resides. It was a big hit with the guys.
2. The bride wore a gorgeous floral ‘crown’ for the reception.
3. Moscow Mules were served to the wedding party in copper cups right after the ceremony. This was fun and set the mood for their fabulous reception.
4. Laura and Greg never stopped smiling all night.
5. He did the Dirty Dancing ‘lift’ at the end of the reception and the crowd went wild.

  • Laura - Jill – I absolutely love all of these photos. You captured the feel of the day perfectly and were so much fun to work with. The best part is I never felt like we were actually taking photos. I can’t wait to see more 🙂

The tulip season at Biltmore only lasts about 3 weeks so you have to hit the timing just right to enjoy the splendor of these flowers. The tulip garden is in my top 10 favorite things I love to photograph. I enjoyed getting to know Kathryn and Jonathan as we walked the property at Biltmore.

Things I noticed, and loved…

1. He’s an opera singer and she’s on set design/woodworking. This dynamic is awesome.
2. Kathryn wore a ballgown and wasn’t afraid to walk thru the grass.
3. She has a cool tattoo of geese. There is special story to boot.
