Cozy Christmas Dinner Inspiration | As seen in Style Me Pretty Living | Sarasota Wedding Photographer

We love a holiday gathering. It gives us all the feels.  With the help of Hollie at Elleson Events, this cozy Christmas dinner shared among friends and family is one of our favorites! The table setting was inviting, the candlelight added warmth and our intimate dinner party was perfection! From start to finish, the occasion was simply beautiful. We created our own signature cocktail for the occasion too.

Asheville Wedding Inspiration | Film Wedding | North Carolina Wedding Photographer

If you are considering a destination wedding (and you adore mountain air and sprawling views), we're pretty sure Asheville should be on your list! We love shooting in North Carolina, and Asheville has a special place in our hearts. It's a wonderful location for a wedding and one we're always down to travel to. For this shoot, a private estate near Lake Lure provided the perfect backdrop. The entire vibe for the shoot was mountainside romance. It had a touch of boho, a little bit of modern, but at the core, still timelessly beautiful. Which y'all know is our JAM! 

The greenery bouquet was ridic (in a good way) and the place setting had a beautiful, clean/crisp feeling. The dark blue kozo paper used as place cards provided a beautiful contrast with the neutral tablescape.  And the charger plate had a really cool shape- which worked great with the softer element like the candles & fabric.

The portraits taken in the lake are some of our favorites. We love when a couple can kick-off their shoes and immerse themselves in nature. 

We were so thrilled to have this beautiful shoot featured on Wedding Chicks!!
