a bascom wedding ... in highlands, north carolina.

if there is one thing i love, it's a wedding. have it take place in a restored barn in north carolina and I couldn't possibly love it more. some of our wonderful friends, jen & alex were married at the gorgeous bascom in highlands, north carolina and as you can clearly see it couldn't have been a more lovely affair.

the gorgeously neutral colors of the bridal party perfectly complemented the gorgeously worn wood of the towering barn-building, which is actually an arts museum currently as well. the space was just beautiful, with a boxwood backdrop for the ceremony itself. a wonderful breeze brought to life the large paper globes that hung from the complementing ceiling all night long.

the perfect reflection of this laid back couple, the whole occasion was simply gorgeous and effortless. i adored jen's veil which looked about as heirloomed as it comes, and the soft look of her classic dress - she was just stunning don't you think? And the rich color of alex's suit was just perfect, i am a big fan of the suit and tie look - especially for an outdoor wedding.

though it was nearly impossible to choose just a few photos to highlight for this post, i quickly decided my favorite shot was the one above of the darling couple sitting in the most perfect setting and lighting i have ever seen. how simply perfect? and of course, one of my favorite parts of the evening was when alex got up on stage and serenaded his new bride - and all of us guests as well! it was the perfect evening for a perfect couple and we couldn't be more thrilled to have been a part of the weekend wedding.

best wishes to jen & alex for a lifetime of wonderful memories!

honey, i do.

i had the extreme pleasure of being contacted by the lovely brooke boling, a talented photographer in Nashville, TN, to partake in an "American Honey" wedding shoot she was styling and shooting. i instantly fell in love with the theme and how she described the detail & palette and instantly knew I had to be a part of the shoot.

was the shoot inspired by country music? i  cannot be certain ... but am surely a fan of Lady A, nonetheless. when i received the gorgeous images from brooke's shoot, i was instantly smitten with her craft and attention to detail. i adore the tiny details and the rustic approach she took with the styling and loved seeing some of our aprons and kraft recipe cards scattered amidst the other wonderful components of this shoot.

i do hope you enjoy all of the lovely collection of images that brooke put together below, and you can click over to her blog to see more images from the shoot!
