A Charming Summer Wedding: Blue, White, and Heartfelt Touches

Hannah and Sage’s summer wedding in Asheville was filled with love & laughter. This beautiful celebration in elegant blue and crisp white, was a perfect blend of timeless style and personal touches that left everyone smiling.

From the moment guests arrived, they were swept into the joyous atmosphere. Greeted with a sparkling glass of champagne, the tone was set for an unforgettable evening. The bride’s attire held special significance, with her robe crafted from her mother’s wedding dress – a touching tribute to family legacy. Her “something blue” was her grandfather’s handkerchief, embroidered with her wedding date, adding another layer of sentiment to the day.

The reception was a whirlwind of fun and creativity. The couple’s unique “yearbook” guest book invited attendees to leave their mark in a truly personal way. Adding to the festive spirit, playful temporary tattoos featuring a heart and “Hannah & Sage” made surprise appearances throughout the evening – can you spot them in the party photos?

As the sun began to set, we were treated to a photographer’s dream: the warm glow of golden hour. Meanwhile, inside, the Emerald Empire Band kept the energy high and the dance floor packed all night long.

Every detail of Hannah and Sage’s summer wedding in Asheville spoke volumes about their love, their thoughtfulness, and their joy in celebrating with loved ones. It was our absolute pleasure to capture these precious moments, creating timeless memories that will be cherished for generations to come.
