Taylor + Clay | Zion Hill Baptist Church | Asheville Wedding Photographer

I love church weddings and especially ones way out in the country with a lot of history. Taylor & Clay were married at Zion Hill Baptist Church located in Leicester, NC. It was a gorgeous day filled with beautiful sunshine and blue skies. Their colors were navy, wine and grey with hints of white and gorgeous greenery. Stargazers did an amazing job on the florals! The ceremony was simple, but elegant. They were married by Pastor Bobby Smith surrounded by their closest family and friends. I would have to say that the director of wedding, Tracy Lee, did an outstanding job on directing and decorating the church and the reception hall. She made all of the wooden signs which were AMAZING!! So much talent!! The wedding was gorgeous, the food was so delicious and this couple along with their families were a joy to photograph. We were so thankful to find a beautiful field right across the street from the church to do couple portraits.

Thank you Taylor & Clay for choosing me to document your wedding day. It was a pleasure to serve you. A huge shout out and thank you to all of the following who gave of their time and talent to make their day a success.

Savannah + Mike | Trinity Baptist Church | Asheville Wedding Photographer

Savannah and Mike were married on May 23rd in the beautiful chapel at Trinity Baptist Church by Dr. Ralph Sexton, Jr., her Pastor and Granddaddy.  This wedding was special to me as I have so many connections to these people and this place.  I have known Savannah most of her life and was so very honored that she asked me to photograph one of the most special days in a couples life.

After some morning showers, we were blessed with a beautiful afternoon which allowed for outdoor photographs by the huge willow tree.  This day would not have been possible without the incredible vendors that put together a flawless day from start to finish.  Thank you all for making their day amazing!!

Brooke + Michael Wedding | Macedonia Baptist Church | Asheville Wedding Photographer

Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.

The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.

She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.

Proverbs 31: 10-12

I met Brooke and her mom a little over a year and a half ago when they first started wedding planning.  I noticed right away the quiet meek spirit Brooke had along with a genuine kindness. A few months later I met Michael and Brooke at Biltmore for their engagement session and couldn't help but see the strong love and compassion they had for each other.  

I don't think I've ever photographed a wedding where the entire church was filled to capacity with friends and family with standing room only.  I grew up in a small country church and I know the close ties you have with your church family.  What was even more special was, Brooke's grandfather married Michael and Brooke.  What a special moment that will never be forgotten.  I must say I cry at almost every wedding I photograph, but especially at this one because the tears flowed down on Brooke & Michael's face as they saw each other for the first time.  

Thank you both for choosing me to document your special day!  It was truly a pleasure serving you both.  I wish you joy, happiness and a love and closeness that only God can give you both.  

Love & Prayers,  Tracy

Thank you to all who made their day special!
