Kat + Cameron are the kind of people that you just instantly love. We met randomly a few times before she reached out to me about there wedding, including a time where she recognized my tattoo artist at a glance and stopped to chat about it in a restaurant. They got married in what was supposed to be a hurricane, moved their ceremony inside and did the dang thing.
Zoe is one of my closest friends, and being a part of her day was the sweetest honor.
She and Andrew knew they wanted an intimate day with their immediate family. They got ready at an Airbnb in Asheville, where they shared their first look. Then we hopped in the car, turned on their "wedding day” playlist, and headed for the Blue Ridge Parkway. We were lucky enough to be there at peak time for fall foliage, and definitely were gifted some extra luck by the swarm of lady bugs landing all over the two of them during their ceremony.
After the ceremony, we explored the mountain tops, covered in clouds until dark, when they headed back into town for a celebratory dinner with their families.
The sweetest luxe backyard wedding!
Juuuuust a few highlights: Kait looking like a fairytale princess come to life with beautiful dress and custom choker (made from left over lace from her train), a first look in the woods they used to walk through in highschool, super cute ceremony backdrop, the sweetest first dances under string lights, and…okay, I can go on and on, just check it out for yourself!
January St. Augustine Wedding
You guys know I love a good floral installation, but when Rachel told me they were intentionally leaving the ceremony space bare, I got really excited. Here are some of her words on the subject - “I really hope the ceremony is filled with so much love and joy that it's tangible. I specifically left the ceremony space bare--no flowers, no arches, no aisle runners (with the exception of the family photos) so as to keep the attention on what's important. I planned to have all of those things, and then before signing my flower contract, just felt like I wanted to strip everything down to the minimum and let the words of our minister, our vows, our prayers, our excitement be what filled the room. That, I would say, was my most important priority.”
