Andrea and Scott had a destination wedding here in Asheville, North Carolina and we captured their big day. Their ceremony was at the magnificent Basilica of St. Lawrence in downtown Asheville followed by a fun-filled, energetic reception at the Homewood castle. In between these two destinations we stopped at a third venue, Grove Park Inn, to do a photo shoot with the couple. That is something Andrea and Scott wanted to do and, of course, we had no objections since our wedding day checklist has “Make bride and groom completely happy” at the top.
So why Grove Park Inn for a photo portrait session? Scott proposed to Andrea there! We actually went to the restaurant at Grove Park Inn and had them sit at the same exact table where it happened. It was very romantic and emotional for them to be back there on their actual wedding day.
It was a pleasure working at the Basilica, Grove Park Inn, and Homewood all in one day. The bridal party got ready at the Hotel Indigo, which is a newly built hotel here in Asheville, NC. It’s worth checking out if you are having an Asheville wedding and need a place for your guests to stay. Staying downtown is convenient because you can walk to almost anything in 5-10 minutes.
We posted their Asheville wedding photography on our blog already, but figured we’d post one more picture. This portrait was taken in front of Homewood before the wedding reception.
