Summer Wedding at the Ridge | Asheville, NC


August 20, 2022

Emma & Rob had a gorgeous summer wedding at the Ridge just outside Asheville, NC. The weather was just perfect; the clouds made for perfect light for photos. All their immediate family gathered at the Residence to get ready. Emma’s dress was gorgeous. I just love the photos of her sister, mom and grandma helping her get ready. They were married by a family on the knoll overlooking the mountains, followed by a fun reception at the Chetau.
