Jennifer and Jacob’s Blowing Rock Wedding at The Inn at Crestwood

This was one of my favorite weddings of all time. The pictures from Boonetown Story speak for themselves so I’ll keep it short. Every detail was absolutely breathtaking but what really made this wedding special was the character of these two fantastic people. I still can’t quite put my finger on it what it was that set them apart. I come across so so many wonderful people in my line of work but… Jennifer and Jacob are just a really special couple and share a unique bond that is truly captivating to watch. I am so honored to have been a part of their wedding.

Lyndsay and Skylar’s Fall Mountain Wedding in Banner Elk NC

When the church bells rang, all of Banner Elk could hear that Lyndsay was about to marry Skylar. The trees joined the event team by turning the perfect shades of orange, red and gold overnight. Lyndsay was a stunning bride, all romantic brunette against the fall colors.The reception was at The Farm in Banner Elk. A little rain came, for good luck, but the tent and pavilion kept everyone dry, warm and dancing all night. Lyndsay wore a full dress for the ceremony, with romantic loose locks, and then changed into her party gown, and had her hair pinned up in time for a lip synch contest with her father. I think she won, but I can’t be sure! Their performances were hilarious, impressive, and well rehearsed. I know I won’t soon forget it! I had so much fun working with Lyndsay. I felt like part of the family. It was truly a romantic, lovely, memorable day.

Yasemin and John’s Wedding at Chetola in Blowing Rock, NC

A calm and serene bride and groom, and a seamless, sunny day. Yasemin and John were lovely to work with. She has an elegant style, that shone through in the color choices and decor. Soft pinks and greens complemented each other, and the freshness of the spring day. The atmosphere was relaxed and unfussy relying on simple beauty of well chosen flowers, lots of candles, and a string trio.  The mood shifted once the ATL Groove stared up. Their sound, stage presence, and energy brought everyone to the dance floor. Even the groom’s mother was dancing on stage!

Chris and Diana’s Misty Mountain Wedding at Banner Elk Winery

With the love of their friends and family and the gorgeous mid October leaves behind them, these two love birds wed on a  lovely misty day in the Banner Elk area of the NC High Country. 
Dark clouds threatened, but in lieu of moving the wedding ceremony to the barn, Diana and Chris decided that they wanted to get married outside on top of a mountain, “for better or for worse”. The guests shared in their adventurous spirit and joined them on the lawn of the Blueberry Villa at with raincoats and umbrellas. Diana walked down the aisle to a beautiful song that Chris' uncle Pablo had composed especially for their wedding.
The intimate reception following was truly memorable featuring dazzling food and deserts from Reid’s Catering, hilarious toasts and surprise multimedia productions, and a really serious dance party. We had so much fun with this crew.
All and all, a wonderful way to end out 2014 season. Congratulations Diana and Chris, all the best!!!

"Meris was the absolute best to work with! I can't imagine the day running as smoothly as it did without her. Meris hemped me plan my wedding while I lived out of state. Planning a wedding in general is stressful, not to mention the added stress of being hundreds of miles away. However, Meris was always a phone call or email away. She was on top of every detail and called to check in to make sure I had everything taken care of - including making sure I was just taking care of myself. On the day of the wedding she made sure everything was perfect. I would recommend her to anyone and everyone!!"
