Hidden River Events Wedding : B + E
As our busiest time of the year winds down, we can’t help but reflect on how amazing the last two years have been. These have been our two busiest years in business and we are beyond grateful for the couples who continue to choose us to be their photographers and preserve their memories for generations to come! One couple that we can’t help but smile when we think about is Erica and Bri! These ladies truly hold a special place in our hearts and we are stoked to have been a small part of their journey here in Asheville. They met on the beach at the Hangout Music Festival in Gulf Shores, AL in 2014. They like to say their first date was at the festival, sitting in the sand, listening to The Avett Brothers under the stars (how romantic)! After 2 years, these lovelies finally wound up in the same city when Bri decided to make the move from Chicago to Atlanta in 2016. They said "I love you" for the first time on Bri’s rooftop, under the fireworks, on the 4th of July. Since then, these two have never looked back. From hiking in North Georgia, career promotions, sipping wine in vineyards, vacations galore, to buying a home, they have established a firm foundation build their marriage upon as continue to pursue building the life they’ve always dreamed of together!
Just minutes into their engagement session at Black Balsam Knob, we knew we were going to have a blast with Erica and Bri! Their obvious chemistry and playful nature made for the perfect evening in the Blue Ridge Mountains!
Their wedding was held at the tranquil Hidden River Events just outside of Asheville! Of course, no love story would be complete without a little drama. In the days leading up to their big day, the weather was looking like it could be all over the place and what was a relatively overcast morning quickly turned to a torrential downpour as the afternoon arrived. All good, these ladies didn’t stress (too much) and I give all the credit in the world to their amazing friends & family whom they surrounded themselves with on their wedding day. Short of looking out the window or stepping outside, you would’ve never known it was raining cats an dogs leading up to their ceremony. The champagne flowed, their friends and family kept the vibes fun and the staff worked non-stop to adjust the ceremony plan. What was looking like it could’ve been wash out, ended up being the absolute perfect day! In fact the overcast skies made for beautiful soft light for all of their photos! With the good vibes still flowing heavy, these ladies danced the night away with their loved ones and it was definitely the proverbial exclamation point to cap off an already amazing day!
We hope you enjoy following along!
