The Farm Wedding: Chelsea + Robbie

Updated: Apr 5

We remember two big smiles and warm Starbucks coffee on the morning we met Chelsea and Robbie for the first time! We started to talk about the vision for their wedding while getting to know them and it was obvious from the get go that this was going to be an amazing day, but what was even more apparent to us was the chemistry and bond between Robbie and Chelsea. It’s absolutely infectious to be around. They are both kind souls, ridiculously sweet to each other and everyone around them, and if that wasn’t enough they both embody a joy for life and love that is not likely to be matched by many. Would it be too cheesy if we called them America’s sweethearts? (lol jk…but seriously)

Our first time getting to capture their love on camera was for their engagement session at Craggy Gardens! Many locals know about this spot but for those reading this out of town, it is a short hiking trail that leads to cliffside ledges that overlook the Blue Ridge Mountains. Did we mention the elevation is upwards of 6,000ft!? To call this view amazing would be an understatement! It is by far one of the most popular and scenic locations for locals and visitors alike. When we started shooting, these two didn’t miss a beat! They were completely themselves and at ease in front of our lenses. They made each other smile because that’s what they do and we simply captured the magic. As we ascended our way up the trail, their beautiful connection could only be matched by the incredible views and skies on this night!

After getting to spend some more time with Chelsea and Robbie we grew quite fond of them. Of course it’s always our goal to connect with our clients, but when you get to make friends in the process it makes the journey that much more special. For us it allows us to capture who they really are, and for those we serve, it allows them to trust and completely be themselves on their wedding day. Always a winning combination :)

Speaking of wedding, Chelsea and Robbie’s big day was at one of our favorite local venues here in the Asheville area, ‘The Farm’. Known for their amazing attention to detail, customer service, views, authentic decor, delicious cuisine, and sweet horses (yes we said horses) The Farm is one of those venues that always exceeds expectations and this day was no exception. Chelsea must have been so ready to get married because for the first time in history, the ladies were ready way before the guys! Although Robbie’s intricate Air Force Uniform may have had something to do with that, it was all in good time.

By far one of the highlights of the evening was the AWESOME live music! Chelsea and Robbie did a lot of research to find the right group for their wedding and they couldn’t have picked a more electrifying band and I don’t say that lightly. From the first dance all the way through the end of the night, The Royal Suits absolutely rocked everyone’s socks off playing old school and new, mash ups, even letting the crowd get in on some of the fun! But of course, our favorite part of the evening as it often is was getting to take Chelsea and Robbie out for golden hour portraits! We were blessed with a beautifully soft lit sky, mountains in the distance, and a field of flowers in bloom. Having shot here before with other couples, this spot is definitely one of the favorites, but prior to this we had never seen it in bloom. Based on everyone’s giddy reaction, I don’t think any of us expected it, but it was definitely a welcomed surprise! One thing that didn’t take us by surprise though, was the fact that Chelsea and Robbie picked up right where they left off with their engagement session! Having been on the go the entire day, this was an opportunity for them to take it all in and just be. After a bit more dancing, The Royal Suits brought the house down and Chelsea and Robbie would soon exit wearing those same smiles we’ve come to love over the past year!
