Lauren + Josh An Enchanted Forest Inspired Wedding | Asheville, NC


Two North Carolina wedding weekends in a row!? Yes, please!!! I’ve spent a total of over 24 hours on the road in the last 10 days, and I couldn’t be more grateful for brides from all over the East Coast that invite me to be a part of their special days!!!

I have known Lauren for a little over a year now. But, before March, we had only ever chatted over email!!! Lauren is an amazing boss lady and small business owner herself, so we have collaborated on so many fun projects and workshops in the past. She is one of the SWEETEST, most bubbly and joyful people I know…so I was jumping for joy when she emailed me to let me know she was engaged and wanted me to shoot her wedding!!! I had a gut feeling that it was going to be one of my favorite weddings of the year…and I was so right!!! The joy and love on this wedding day was unmatchable and I feel SO lucky that I was able to be a part of it all!

From bridesmaids in floral crowns, the biggest peony bouquet you’ve ever seen, incredible invitation suites, stunning portraits, a tear-jerking ceremony and mountain views…this wedding is one for the books!

Congratulations, Josh and Lauren!!! Thank you both so much for allowing me to be a part of your day. I just love you both!!!!
