October 14, 2017 Artsy Fall Wedding in Black Mountain

Alexis+James vendors 2 19.jpg

I've worked with quite a few crafty couples, but Alexis and James may just take the cake for the most personalized elements in their wedding. Not only did James and Alexis's parents create all of the beautiful bottle decor and her niece make the cute little owl cupcakes, but the bride herself was adorned in family heirlooms with a handmade dress crafted by her mother to take the cake! But, as beautiful as all of these things were, it was the amount of time behind them, the amount of effort that the families put into Alexis and James' big day, that truly showed how special the pair is. 

On this clear, blue-sky day the two lovebirds (or maybe, owls?) made their life-long vows to each other (with the help of my fantastically eloquent colleague, Murphy Funkhouser Capps) and then spent the evening quietly enjoying time with family (with a little wrestling thrown in!)

Thank you to everyone who made Alexis and James' day one to remember!
