In late July, I had the honor of joining Kat & Matt and their families in Asheville, North Carolina to photograph this lovely couple's wedding day. Aren't they beautiful?
I know Kat from my college days at UNC. When we met, she was the editor of the Blue & White, and I was a photographer for the magazine. I remember meeting with her after an assignment to get feedback on my photos. She was really helpful and one of the sweetest editors I'd met. : ) I'm so proud to have been chosen to photograph her and Matt's wedding. It's truly the biggest compliment EVER to photograph a visually talented person.

Kat and Matt were married at St. Eugene's Catholic Church in Asheville, and the reception was held at Claxton Farm, where I never tire of shooting. : ) When I think back about this wedding, two words come to mind: casual elegance. Everything was gorgeous and everyone was having a ball! No fuss, only fun. I LOVED the florals (a little too much, if that's possible) and the atmosphere. I also LOVE that Kat and Matt both come from big families (Kat is the youngest of seven sisters!). Photographing the kiddos at this wedding was a treat.
I wish all the happiness in the world for these newlyweds -- they definitely deserve the best! Enjoy some of my favorites, y'all.
SO PRETTY. I DIE.
Kat, you're so gorgeous!
ADORE this series of Kat's mom and dad and all the grandchildren.
Nephews - love!
Kat and her sisters - double love!
FAVORITE. Hands down.
Their photo booth prop and guestbook table was amazingggg.
I love how they laugh with each other. I saw them sneaking looks at each other like this all day long!
Each sister gave a toast that was so touching (and funny at times!).
These ribbon wands were meant for the exit, but I love how everyone used them to dance. : )
