Choosing an Asheville Wedding must not have been a difficult decision for Ashley and Daniel. Not only is it a wonderfully charming city, set deep within the Blue Ridge Mountains, it is also where Ashley grew up and attended UNC Asheville.
The morning started bright and early at the Four Points by Sheraton in downtown Asheville. With such a large wedding party, the festivities stretched over an entire floor! There was a room for hair, one for makeup, one for an amazing brunch provided by family friends, a flower room and multiple suites for the boys and girls to look their best before braving the July heat. There may have been other guests staying at the hotel, but with the excitement and anticipation pouring out of the rooms, you would never know it.
We ventured out to The Botanical Gardens at Asheville to capture Ashley and Daniel’s first look photos as well as all of the bridal party shots. The gray and salmon colors of the bridal party really stood out amongst the lush greenery and flowers in the garden. We were tempting fate as we heard the rumble of thunder that comes with those summer showers, but luckily the rain never came.
The ceremony and reception were both held in downtown Asheville at On Broadway. The charming and intimate nature of the venue really helped focus the energy of the party, which was present from the beginning of the ceremony all the way to the end!
Ashley and Daniel’s attention to detail was spread throughout the venue. From signs inviting everyone to join together as family to the evenings signature cocktail, a Japanese Ginger Ale, highlighting just how perfect their pairing was. It was a fantastic party! Ashley’s friend, and bridesmaid, also provided a photo booth. Her amazing props were quickly brought onto the dance floor, making the already amazing dancing all the more epic!
We love to get out on the dance floor and integrate ourselves into the middle of the action. Sometimes we get so caught up in catching those amazing dance moves that we get a little too close to the action, as captured by these pretty hilarious photos!
As the party wound down, the newly weds were ushered out to sounds of cheers and an awaiting car drove them off into the Asheville nightlife.
Congratulations Ashley & Daniel,
We wish you a lifetime of Love & Adventure!
