When Stewart first contacted me about her destination wedding located in Asheville she mentioned she wanted to host an intimate dinner party with all of her favorite people that also happened to be her wedding. She did not want any staged photos and was simply interested in having candid photos of everyone enjoying themselves. Those were the moments Stewart very much wanted to look back on.
The wedding ceremony and dinner party took place in the evening at Rhubarb, one of our favorite Asheville locations. Stewart and Patrick’s guests sat down together at one long table to share a delightful meal. The night was filled with good food, laughter, and love. Their guests shared toasts, speeches, and stories throughout the evening.
As the night wore on, I could not help but think that this was the was one of the sweetest wedding experiences as I watched everyone connect so lovingly. The group was small so it was easy for everyone to be involved and share their stories about the newlyweds.
A few months leading up to the wedding Stewart decided she wanted to skip the bride and groom portrait portion of her wedding day and schedule an, “After-wedding Session” with me where she and Patrick would again don their wedding attire two days later and hike one of my favorite mountains with me. We played music, ran around the soft mountain grass, and danced under a full moon. It was entirely too much fun.
I love After-wedding Sessions because you don’t have to take time away from your guests on your wedding day to have some photos taken. Scheduling this type of session allows your big day to flow a little more naturally. Then, when we meet back up, we can spend an entire hour capturing you and you and your partner loving and simply existing together as newlyweds. This type of shoot never feels rushed or hasty and is overall a relaxed and fun experience.
