[weddings] tori & ken, an intimate getaway in asheville

It is safe to say that this was my most laid back wedding to date. Most of the weddings you hear of are pretty big in size, including a wedding party, reception, months of planning…the whole nine yards. But this one…this one was one of a kind! When Tori contacted me about doing wedding pictures, I was SO excited because I’ve known her for years, so naturally I was thrilled for her. She then goes on to tell me that it was going to be just her and Ken. No. One. Else. How cool is that? I really felt like this is something I would be more apt to do myself (ok, so my husband and I went to the courthouse…it’s KINDA the same thing, right?). I loved the intimacy and simplicity of just being alone and in the moment.

I have to say that Asheville is one of my top favorite cities. What a cool place all around! Please enjoy these pictures taken in the art district of Asheville. The ceremony was held at the Biltmore Village Inn, a bed & breakfast. Afterwards, the beautiful couple celebrated at the Grove Park Inn Restaurant, where they had their first date.

Again, I am so thankful to this couple for allowing me and my assistant for the day to capture these awesome moments.

  1. You both look truly happy. I wish you many, many, many years of bliss. My family and I stayed at the Grove Park Inn many times. What a great venue for the wedding!
