I first got to know Ryan and Kristen when I photographed their engagement session the year before their wedding, and from the start, I appreciated how comfortable they were just being themselves in front of the camera and the trust they put in me as their photographer. When their wedding day arrived, it was a bit of a rainy and dreary day at the Mountain Magnolia Inn in Hot Springs, nestled outside of Asheville in the Blue Ridge Mountains, but I assured Kristen that a little fog and mist wouldn't hurt us. In fact, I'm a little in love with the moody, romantic feel it lended to the day and the photographs from it...
Ryan and his groomsmen shared a toast before the main event...
That first emotional moment where the bride begins the descent down the aisle never fails to get me...
I absolutely loved that Ryan made his special hot sauce as favors for each of the guests! Nothing like a little personal touch...
One of my favorite moments of a wedding day is sneaking away from the noise and chaos to snap a few final images of just the bride and groom...
