Backyard Wedding in the Blue Ridge Mountains | Asheville Wedding Photographer

From the moment Tess emailed me about her Asheville wedding I felt an instant connection to her and knew that I had to be the one to document her wedding day. She told me in her through emails that she and her fiance Ryan planned to have an intimate backyard wedding in the mountains. 

They wanted fifty of their most cherished people attending. Tess wore a vintage Gunny Sax dress that looked simply amazing on her. Everything about this wedding was so well done and had so much meaning behind it. Tess and her best friend designed and welded the arbor for the ceremony and even made a dance floor (these are some badass chicks). Tess’ talented friend Mason did everyones hair. Tess’ mom baked beautiful cakes and desserts and their friends from Cucina 24 did an amazing family style spread for dinner. I got to sit at the table with all her guests and to share an incredible meal and chat and hear stories about Tess and Ryan. I love that the people they cherish the most all came together and played such a big role in the wedding and helped make all of the magic happen for these two.
