Tina and Adam were not my typical wedding couple. When we did their engagement session, it involved a nerdy portrait session, remaking a romance cover novel, and just a slew of silly pics outside in their backyard. Which was soon to be the site of their union, also once the site of the wedding of the previous home owners in the 1960s. So it was laced with tradition and wedding history. They know what they want, and it was all about fun and each other. So of course…I was on board!
The decorations were all made by Tina and her family and friends. The flowers, put together by her mom. All the decorations and accoutrements were put together by loved ones the night before. It was so special how everyone came together to make this happen. This is what weddings are all about.
I love seeing diversity in weddings. Especially here in Asheville. Food trucks at weddings is becoming a fast growing popularity, for so many reasons. Smash Box Mobile Kitchen parked in their driveway and served up hot plates of chicken and waffles, fish tacos, and other crowd favorites. Cakes by Grey supplied amazing cupcakes, which I have to say tasted superb. I haven’t seen cupcakes with filling inside and I’ve been to many a wedding with cupcakes I tell you! I had something with pineapple inside and a whip cream frosting! There was a photo booth in the garage, and a never ending stream of friends wanting to hug and congratulate and have their picture taken with the bride and groom.
Music played into the night from Westsound band and DJ Tommy See played the Bride and Grooms favorites, inspiring them to dance the night away. We ended the night with Dirty Dancing’s Time of My Life, and it was EPIC! Fog machine and laser lights topped it off.
Congratulations to Tina and Adam. Your freak flags can now fly together in this life. I wish you so many years of blissful joy and laughter.
