This is a wedding I had been looking forward to shooting for a long time. I first met with Dre (short for Adrianne) and Tony to discuss their wedding plans back in the Spring of 2015. They wanted to get hitched in the mountains that coming Fall, but because Asheville wedding venues book up so far in advance, they had to wait an entire year and a half to make it happen in the Fall of 2016! In the meantime we had an awesome engagement session in the NODA arts district of Charlotte. I had so much fun shooting with them that day that I knew their wedding was going to be unique. Seeing as how they love live music, they had a "music themed wedding" complete with concert tickets for invitations, music artwork for table settings, and of course an amazing live band, 5 on Sundays. From the "first look" (if you don't know what this is, just google it) to the sparkler exit, it was nothing short of amazing!
