Chestnut Ridge Wedding Asheville NC / Jeff and Megan

It doesn’t get much dreamier than a wedding at Chestnut Ridge in Asheville, especially when the couple is as incredible as Megan and Jeff. Looking at the photos from the wedding, it won’t surprise you that Chestnut Ridge is one of my all time favorite wedding venues. Set in the middle of the North Carolina mountains, it makes for the most gorgeous photos, especially when the leaves are still changing colors. I’m honored to be one of Chestnut Ridge’s preferred vendors. I love the people I work with there. They are so talented and accommodating.

Megan and Jeff are one of those couples that I clicked with from the moment I met them. I was thrilled that they had decided to do a destination wedding in Asheville. I may be biased, but I think it’s one of the best places to get married. The ceremony was breathtaking! It took place at the gorgeous Basilica of St. Lawrence in downtown Asheville.

Jeff serves in the United States Air Force, so the couple decided to exit the church through a saber arch. In this military wedding tradition, the couple proceeds through the arch until the last two saber bearers drop their sabers to block the couple from passing through. The couple has to kiss and then as they exit the arch, one of the saber bearers pats the bride on the backside and says, “Welcome to the air force, ma’am!”

The reception was absolutely stunning. There wasn’t a dry eye during the couple’s first dance, or the toasts for that matter. The whole reception was designed by Mingle Events, with the most amazing flowers by Spring Vine. Megan and her bridesmaids looked absolutely breathtaking. Their makeup was done by Powder Me Pretty and their hair by my very own stylist, Zhenya.

After the wedding, Megan and Jeff went on a honeymoon to Bali. I loved following their stories on Instagram, and actually traveled there with my husband Vadim just a few months later. We took so many of their suggestions and it was an incredible trip! I’m so thankful I had the chance to meet Megan and Jeff and photograph their incredible day at Chestnut Ridge.
