Kristen & Drew {wedding}

The FULL POST is HERE!!  Kristen is dying to see these.  She has my undying gratitude for her patience (even though she says that she has none!).  Caroline has gone all out with this post and I can't be happier to share it with everyone!  Bear with me if I've already said any of the following.

Kristen and Drew chose the very awesome Grove Park Inn, in Asheville, NC for their December wedding.  And as I know I've said before, there was a foot of snow on the ground and Kristen and Drew, their wedding party and families, were the BEST SPORTS EVER!  You'll see why as you scroll through the images.

I thought I would borrow a page from Sarah Rhoades and list the vendors that Kristen used to help with her day.

Venue: Grove Park Inn  |   Dress: Pendelton Bridal   |   Hair & Makeup: Renae Fowler Hair Design   |   Flowers: Verlons Florist (soon to be Blue Willow)/Meredith Henderson

Getting ready. 

Drew waiting for Kristen...

First Look.  These two opted for a First Look, so that we could have time and daylight to work with.  I'm always so glad when couples choose to do this.  The best thing (besides extra images) about a First Look is that most couple are able to relax and enjoy themselves before they have to walk down the isle in front of their friends and family to say their 'I do's.  

Our beautiful couple.

Our handsome groom.

Oh, so pretty, our bride.  Kristen, you rock!  I should mention that Kristen single-handedly (almost) put this whole beautiful wedding together in about 3 months.  Am I right, Kristen, on the time?  Whether I'm right or wrong about the 3 months, it was an incredibly short amount of time!

Can you believe that we were freezing our butts off?  By this time (about 15 minutes in) I couldn't feel my fingers.  And I had a hat on, finger-less gloves, scarf, coat, pants.  Kristen was quite the trooper, to stand the weather, in just her dress, so that I could shoot in 'pretty light'!

See, I told you they rock!  The girls did the same thing, but they were BAREFOOT!

The ceremony.  Yes, it was outside.  In the freezing cold.  But it was so pretty, huh?

This one was totally Drew's father's idea.  But it's a good one, huh? 

Caked!

Thanks, Kristen and Drew, for letting me be a part of your day!
