Dancing in the Rain

No amount of rain, thunder, or lighting was going to stop this fairytale wedding from happening just the way it was planned.  Chris and Morgan were married this past May at a unique farm tucked away in Statesville NC called Green Gables Farms.  Upon entrance to this beautifully manicured farm, you immediately feel the southern hospitality as you are greeted by ravishing farmland filled with every breed of horse and farm animal you could imagine.

The details of this wedding were magnificently scripted by the bride and no stone was left unturned.  From the grooms brother who is an active military soldier surprising him moments before the wedding (total tear jerker) to the choreographed father and daughter dance by Morgan and her dad, this day was a dream come true.  We thank Chris and Morgan for allowing us to be a part of their special day and wish nothing but the best for them along their journey as husband and wife.

Here are a few of our favorite pictures capturing their day.  Thanks to Indigo Photography of Charlotte for the amazing photos.

 

 

The Perfect Verse Over a Tight Beat

I can remember it like it was yesterday, the words being uttered- "I think I found my wedding planner."  It didn't take a full hour for me to make an instant connection with a spunky, adventures, intelligent engineer named Imani and her cool, collect, fitness trainer fiancé Chris.  They have been a joy to work with as we quickly plan their summer wedding in Asheville NC.  On the way to venue search, they looked at me and said- "hey Crystal, do you know Johnnyswim?"  My response,  "no, I don't think I have (thinking I really should expand my music playlist and take my New Edition obsession off repeat and join the rest of the world).   They instantly showed me a picture and said "this is our inspiration for our engagement session, can you make it happen?"  Well, ummm- heck yeah I can!   Thanks to Lucy and Steve, the wonderful photographers of Smitten and Hooked, for bringing the awesomeness to this spicy, love intense, fun, awww inspiring engagement shoot.  Thanks to the Labortory Mills and Old South Vintage Rentals for connecting with us and making Imani and Chris' engagement shoot one to remember.  Enjoy and be inspired!

Chic in the City

For almost 10 months, we have been planning a fall wedding for Jenelle and Deatric.  To be around the two of them, you will instantly recognize their chemistry and gravitate to their kindness.  We had a great time making their engagement shoot vision come to life.  Thanks Shanna Duffy Photography for capturing the essence of Jenelle and Deatric's love.  Thanks to Crave Dessert Bar as well for letting us use their venue as a canvas for life long memories.  Here are a few of our favorites!  Enjoy!
