Working with Jeff and Steph was like working with old friends. I absolutely love the story of how they met. Steph attended a "dive bar meet up group" and saw Jeff and his friends at the bar and figured they were they were for the same reason, so she took upon herself to introduce herself while waiting for everyone else to show up. Turns out Jeff wasn't there for the meet up group, but they instantly connected and talked all night! The official first date followed shortly thereafter, and the rest as they say is history!
They currently call Washington D.C. home, but Steph is originally a Carolina girl. Seeing as how they both are Catholic, the Basilica of Saint Lawrence here in Asheville was the perfect location for their wedding. The cathedral is one of the best kept secrets of Asheville's amazing historic architecture, so needless to say I was ecstatic to shoot their wedding there. Some people will criticize an indoor wedding, but would you believe we actually had a massive thunderstorm that afternoon? Steph and Jeff handled it like the champs I knew they would, and I think the photos we got of them under an umbrella turned out great!
After a long ceremony, On Broadway downtown always knows how get the party started and keep everyone happy with lots of amazing local food and beverages. Flowers provided by Stargazers and wedding coordination by Foreman Event Co pulled everything together for a beautiful day. Congrats you two, and look me up next time you are in Asheville!
