Every now and then a couple comes along and they just blow you away. Sometimes it’s for their chemistry on camera. Other times it’s for their sweet personalities and how they treat each other as well as the people around them. And then there’s couples like Sarah and Joe where it’s truly a harmonious blend of both! From the first time we connected with these two on the phone, we knew they were going to be special to work with for their engagement and their wedding. Our instincts couldn’t have been more spot on! They came up during the fall last year to visit with family while in Asheville and absolutely rocked their engagement session at The NC Arboretum. Not only did we grow quite fond of them in this short amount of time but social media did too. I distinctly remember getting a call from Jenny’s mom after we posted a preview on facebook and her saying something along the lines of who was that gorgeous couple!?!? (lol). It wasn’t only their chemistry on camera, but it’s as if they both showed who they truly are. Their personalities shined bright and as we got to know them, and their story individually as well as together, you couldn’t help but to love Sarah and Joe and admire so many of the qualities they both had.
This admiration and respect was never more apparent than on their wedding day. The mutual joy they shared with their friends and families, the amount of happy tears, and heartfelt speeches left us in awe. As wedding photographers, we always get to see people in their happiest moments so you could say our view of someone could be slightly skewed but to hear it from their loved ones who’ve known them all their lives and see the happiness they experienced as they watched these two amazing people come together was truly inspiring. Probably our favorite part of their wedding day at The Century Room in downtown Asheville was a tie between their first dance and the overall dance party for the reception. Our good friend Tom from Mountain Top Entertainment got the crowd going and they never stopped! It made for plenty of fun captures and priceless memories that they are sure to look back on and laugh for years to come, but don’t take our word for it!

Big congrats to Sarah and Joe as they embark on this beautiful journey called marriage and a special thank you to all of the amazing wedding vendors who helped to bring this special day to life!
