Fall Mountain View Wedding | Yesterday Spaces Wedding Photographer

I had the privilege of being Danya & Lang’s wedding photographer at Yesterday Spaces for my last wedding of 2018; what a wonderful way to finish out the 2018 wedding season it was! Yesterday Spaces is a 70 acre working family farm in Leicester, NC just minutes from Asheville. There are a number of beautiful buildings and spaces on the property, which create endless opportunities for unique and beautiful photographs.

A few of my favorite memories from the wedding were the amazing antiques and beautiful light inside the farmhouse. How sweet and oh so helpful Danya’s bridesmaids were on this special day. Oh, and Danya’s dress!! An absolutely timeless gown with the most beautiful lace detailing.

On a more stressful note – Lang ended up having two stand in groomsmen on account of flights being cancelled… They went and purchased suits and everything ended up working just perfectly. The original groomsmen finally made it, a little bit later than they had hoped, but gave some of the best speeches of the night!

The wedding was designed by Elena from Elena Events. I have shared an inspiration board below that Elena sent me that her and Danya developed when discussing the style of the wedding and their choices for floral arrangements.

The style/vibe that Danya was looking for was a vintage/moody and elegant feel. I would say it was definitely just that!

Here is a quote from Elena discussing her planning process a bit further…

I usually ask the bride for her top 10 inspiration photos.

From this point, we meet at the venue and chat about different options based on the photos provided. We talk about how we are going to flesh out the vision in a comprehensive way. Often I’ll throw in some ideas, like in Danya’s case – the moss, adding some gold touches in the floral with magnolia leaves and bronze amaranthus.

After that meeting and then between the brides photos and photos that I find that I think fit the theme I create a wedding collage (just like Danya’s above). Then it’s creating the overall look from there!
