A Wedding at Crest Center: Clouds, Laughter, and an Unforgettable Dance Party!

You always want to end the year with a bang! Lindsey and Andrew’s celebration at the Crest Center in Asheville, NC, did just that. Imagine this: dramatic clouds over the mountains, moody fog and mist, and a love vibe so potent you could practically touch it! Then add a total dance party, and that’s a start to this day!

This day was all about those curveballs that make life an adventure (like the weather; talk about unpredictability!). One minute, we’re playing dodgeball with raindrops, and then boom! The skies clear up just in time for their vows. Talk about perfect timing!

Their first look was something else. The kind that tugs at your heartstrings and leaves everyone choked up (Who’s cutting onions here?). Andrew’s face was perfection!

During the ceremony, tears flowed from the processional, where Lindsey’s dad and the officiant lost it, to Andrews’s surprise dip at the end. I took a different angled approach for the ceremony so that we could be up close and personal with the couple and the story and show the wedding guest in the background.

Lindsey slayed with a bold emerald green theme complemented by sleek black and white accents that swooned us all. Her Maggie Sottero dress was on point as well. And their guest list was nothing short of impressive! Their crew flew in from around the world – from Australia to Hawaii.

The reception? It was the epitome of a wild party! From the tear-jerking first dance to the epic dance floor domination, it was a no-rules, sweat-dripping party till Soulution Band played the last song! Dressed to the nines in cocktail attire, the guests brought their A-game while keeping it comfy to party all night.

But what truly defined this day? The unfiltered emotions, the hearty laughs, and all those spontaneous moments are the real treasure of wedding photography. Moments you can’t stage or script. That’s precisely what Lindsey and Andrew signed up for, and man, did their day deliver!

Lindsey and Andrew, your day wasn’t just another job for me; it was a celebration of love that felt like the most heartwarming, rowdy family reunion. Thanks for letting me capture those unforgettable moments and proving that a dash of rain sometimes only adds to the narrative.

If you want your wedding to be a riotous, soul-stirring, laughter-filled extravaganza like this, give me a shout! I’m all about capturing those raw, candid, joy-overloaded moments.
