This mountain top at @overlookbarn might just be the prettiest darn spot to tie the knot in North Carolina! These college sweethearts shared their first kiss amid panoramic Blue Ridge views, and had a super local + crafty wedding reception in the incredible restored barn. The real wedding is on our blog today- link in profile + IG Story.

Holly’s only request was to do their engagement session during golden hour. I did a happy dance all the way home. {freelensed} • • • • • Venue: @themeadowsraleigh • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • #wedding #ncwedding #weddings #southernbrideandgroom #raleighweddings #wilmingtonweddings #charlottewedding #ashevillewedding #boonewedding #photography #raleighphotography #ncphotography #weddingphotography #yourockphotographers #tribearchipelago #northcarolinawedding #twobrightlights #thegalleryoflight #subjectlight #freelensed #thefreelensed #freelensing

The first time I met Amanda and Greg it felt like we had been friends for a long time. We just meshed and it’s because they are just so great a part and together. I smile every time I think about them! Thank you both for allowing us to be there to celebrate you with your amazing family and friends! • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • #wedding #ncwedding #weddings #southernbrideandgroom #raleighweddings #wilmingtonweddings #charlottewedding #ashevillewedding #boonewedding #photography #raleighphotography #ncphotography #weddingphotography #yourockphotographers #tribearchipelago #northcarolinawedding #twobrightlights
I can’t get over how special Friday’s wedding was with Beth and Alex. Two of the sweetest people I have had the pleasure of working with tied the knot at the Raleigh Rose Garden and then moved over to the gorgeous Melrose Knitting Mill to celebrate with friends and family.

Today was a fairytale. 😭😍❤ Kelsey & Jake, ya'll are PERFECT. 💐💍10.13.18 💕 [Behind the scenes//cell phone photo] #tyingtheknox
“The mountains melt like wax before the Lord, before the Lord of all the earth. The heavens proclaim His righteousness, and all the peoples see His glory.” Psalm 97:5-6 I try to live my life intentionally, to the glory of the Lord. It is my heart’s desire that my faith would be evident in the way I conduct myself, even in small, humbling, insignificant moments. I fail constantly, but in each failure, I purposefully search for the lesson embedded within the mess. I will never be as awe-inspiring as the mountains, but I hope that others see His glory in someone as meek as me as I pursue Him and proclaim His righteousness! Right now, we are driving to the airport to pick up my brother-in-law to come live with us. More change is coming, but through prayer and by the grace of God, we will be prepared to accept it with open arms. It’s amazing that the Lord of all the earth hears our prayers, isn’t it? May that understanding sink in and refresh you, no matter what you’re going through.
Kayla and RJ- somehow it’s been a whole year since this gorgeous day. Happy anniversary you two! @maxcooperavl #happyanniversary #carolinaloveevents #ashevillewedding #ashevilleweddingplanner
Happy first anniversary Cara and Charlie! 10.12.17. @jcmphotographyasheville #carolinaloveevents #ashevilleweddingplanner #ashevillewedding
If there are flowers, I’ll make you stand in them. 🌾 After a week of traveling and shooting, I’m trying my best to get some editing done before another full weekend. And I’m so glad the temperature has dropped (just in time, huh @kmewen & @justintacevedo ?) and that this is my life now- constant beautiful wedding days, traveling, and answering emails outside on my porch. 🍂 #samanthafloydphotography #booneweddingphotographer #boonewedding
I want to hike up a mountain with YOU! Yes you, right now maybe sitting at your desk daydreaming of breaking out on this gorgeous day. . Or you tired momma, standing in your kitchen, thanking God it’s Friday because your hubby will be home for a few days to help. . I want to connect with you! I want to hike a mountain and show your connection. I want to walk behind a waterfall and show who you are. The wife and mother, and the woman you have been so beautifully created to be. . So let’s do it while the days are cooling down and the leaves are starting to change. . I still have dates open this year to take on new adventures and share your story.
Some places have long winters, others have long summers... if there was a place with long autumns how awesome would that be???
with faces, a dress and suit like THIS!? ill take your pictures anywhere. 💕
THIS is why we love a first look. Jennie ❤️ John. @ajdunlap #carolinaloveevents #ashevilleweddingplanner #ashevillewedding
Blue hour is the new golden hour.
I’m reading #girlwashyourface by the amazing @msrachelhollis (finally! I know I’m late to the party!) and something she mentioned really resonated with me. You see I really struggled with moving to North Carolina. It was for my husband’s job and the opportunity presented so many answers to prayer. BUT it wasn’t the way I envisioned the answers. Let me know if you can relate! 👇🏻 . I didn’t want these answers in NC! I wanted them in FL where my friends and family were, where my church community was...we were rooted. Why NC Lord? . Don’t get me wrong! I LOVE NC it’s gorgeous, we loved visiting and even got married here but moving away from our roots was hard! . In the year since we have moved I have finally got myself mentally accepting and really rejoicing in what God has provided more than complaining about the way it was received 😬 Yikes...that’s embarrassing to admit! 🤷🏼‍♀️ Rachel mentions in the book “You must choose to be happy, grateful and fulfilled. If you make the choice every single day, regardless of where you are or what’s happening, you will be happy.” . Wow! Open my eyes girl! . Have you read the book? I’m only a couple chapters in and I only put it down because #momproblems 🤣
Any other perfectionists in the house? 🙋‍♀️😳 This morning, I am humbled by and grateful for the mercy of the Lord. I made a big ole mistake, and there aren’t enough face-palm emojis to truly express how I feel. 🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️ While I’m still over here trying forgive myself, I’m also learning slowly to seek out evidences of God’s movement in my life in the toughest of situations. This can be impossibly difficult at times, since I often find myself dangerously fixated on what went wrong. ✨ But I’m determinedly reminding myself of these truths today: I cannot be perfect. I do not have to be perfect. I have to be honest with myself. I will learn from my mistakes. And I will worship the Lord through it all.
Best friends are the family you choose 🍂
I had a special love for this sweet couple as they live in my beloved city of Seattle, which I miss dearly. It also didn’t hurt that they are the cutest couple ever. 😍 Congratulations Ariel and Kyle! @jcmphotographyasheville #partytiljahn #carolinaloveevents #ashevilleweddingplanner #ashevillewedding
trying to get as much work and snuggles with forrest and @jessicadonar in as humanly possible before heading up to nyc to celebrate and photograph these hot biscuits tie the knot. also cannot wait to connect and shoot with a few other couples. that city just always inspires me like whoa.

I’ve done a few happy dances today and one was when I delivered this album 💕 Katie and William had to reschedule their wedding to a different date due to Hurricane Florence but they ran with it and it.was.beautiful!

“If it’s your job to eat a live frog, it’s best to do it first thing in the morning.” ✨ . . Don’t you feel better overall when you have finished a workout? Then why do we let so many excuses get in the way of feeling like our best selves? . . Are we going to be motivated to exercise every single day? Heck no! BUT if we have the goal of treating our bodies like a temple, we have a duty to allow our bodies the chance for movement. . . If you struggle with finding the motivation to work out, make a point to make sure to get it done in the morning. There will be less distraction and less chances of other excuses popping up (because life happens!) that will get in the way of the “I’ll do it later” mentality. . . Need some extra accountability to get up early to get that workout in? My next bootcamp is starting Monday. Let’s keep each other accountable for 21 days and I can guarantee that “eating that frog” is going to spill over into every part of your life as you become a better version of yourself each day!

*SNEAK PEEK* Well, after the overwhelming outpouring of love Caroline received on the portraits I shared of her bridal session yesterday, wait till see you the images from her wedding day!!! I loved spending time with these two and their families so very much! Everyone in Boone thinks I'm a member of the Yates family simply because of my looks and I'm pretty much a member of Jacob's family because I've known them my whole life! Congrats to these two lovebirds. I wish you nothing but joy and happiness! Thanks to the amazing vendors who made this day possible!

I don’t know everything but right now I know these 3 things: 1️⃣ I haven’t had one pumpkin spice latte yet! Even more important though are those pumpkin cheesecake bars!! What happened to them? I haven’t seen them at all? 😫 @starbucks bring them back!! 🙌🏻 . 2️⃣ Its not cold yet but I’m ready for all the @nordstrom and @bohoblu cute, oversized sweaters! 🍁 . 3️⃣ Marriage is a journey! One not worth giving up on because of little things or there isn’t a “spark” anymore. It all takes time and work and let me tell you...it’s worth it!! Keep going! Keep fighting for the things that made you fall in love with that person! Learn to pray together and hold each other higher than any other person. 💕
I don't get to see this guy too often but these pictures sum up perfectly how each time ends up haha @neighbordaveyt #boonewedding #laurensgotabooner
Congratulations to my brother @boonec09 and my new sister @lauren_elizabeth60 on getting married this past Saturday. I was honored to get to stand at my brother's side while he married the woman of his dreams. Congratulations again and I wish y'all nothing but happiness! #boonewedding #laurensgotabooner
Molly and Ben were married yesterday at The Paisley Barn and while Shannon and Cole were lucky enough to have captured it, I get the honor to edit their album and it was so hard choosing a few sneak peeks!

We did the dang thing y'all🎉 now art and life is my main focus lol
We love couples who allow their wedding day to be an expression of themselves as individuals and as a couple. Jordan and Jen did just that. Don’t you just love her dip dyed dress?! #twogirlsonewedding #carolinaloveevents #ashevilleweddingplanner #ashevillewedding
Happy birthday to this precious ray of pup-shine! 🐾

Pinch me.
want three reasons why i love this image? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ one: i shot this in a really basic parking lot. no need for a super crazy location ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ two: they have a pet pig named willy ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ three: these two know how to bring the heat
Hitting the road again this weekend to shoot with @aliciawhitephoto. I’m so excited to work with a photog that I’ve admired from afar. Pursing this dream and watching the Lord bless me with opportunities like this one have been so humbling and joyful! See you soon friend. // Photo from my internship with @megangielow . (Also, thank you for introducing me to Alicia!)
