It was such an honor to capture the love story of Rebecca and Travis and to be present for their beautifully intimate Asheville NC mountain wedding! From the moment I first met them – at Nat and Rachel’s Winthrop wedding – I could instantly tell they shared a deep connection and passionate love story. The stars aligned and a few weeks later I photographed their engagement session, and then their gorgeous fall wedding in the mountains of Asheville, NC that I am now so excited to share with you all.
The morning air was crisp and calming to their friends and family who were sprinkled around Mountain Fiesta eager to help with the details of the wedding ceremony and reception. Customized s’more wedding favors were placed on the tables and pictures were being hung on the trail to the ceremony lookout all while Rebecca and Travis’ dog Chloe playfully mingled with guests.
On a hidden walkway in the woods, Rebecca and Travis met for a private first look before they would say their vows. Rebecca walked down the pathway in her fairy-like flowing wedding gown while Travis watched mesmerized, one hand over his heart, in his very debonair suit. Wearing her grandmother’s earrings and holding a bouquet of flowers put together by her bridesmaids, Rebecca sang along with Travis as he played a few songs for her on his guitar all while managing to steal a few kisses in between chords.
Rebecca and Travis’ Asheville NC Mountain Wedding was truly full of beauty – not just for the amazing location where they made their eternal promise to one another but because of the great foundation in their love story and the celebration of it with their closest friends and family. After they exchanged their vows, everyone walked down the trail to the celebration barn for a night filled with s’mores roasting on the bonfire, exchanging stories over glasses of wine, making wishes with Chinese lantern sendoffs…and dancing the night away to their favorite karaoke songs.
Rebecca and Travis – Thank you for your trust in me, your passion for life, your compassion for one another, and for your hope for the future. You both inspire me so much and it was truly an honor to photograph your beautiful wedding. Cheers to many more chapters in your love story!
