Marriage in the Mountains

This weekend, I traveled to Asheville for my college friend Louisa's wedding.  She is quick-witted, intelligent and can turn any story into a comedy routine.  This picture of the bride arriving to the reception embodies her fun-loving spirit perfectly!


Philip, a fellow WoCo grad, proposed to Louisa last October by carving "Will You Marry Me?" into pumpkins and tactfully placing her ring on the stem of the last pumpkin.  This may be one of the greatest proposals ever and their wedding was just as memorable.  It was great to see my friends again, and the reunion made the night that much more special.


 The color scheme of the wedding (deep purples, maroons, and oranges) reflected the colors of the season.  No leaf was unturned. From the fiddler who played music for those arriving at the reception, all the way to the monogrammed carmel apples given to guests as they left, every detail embodied an autumn wedding.  


I especially liked the personal touches the B&G incorporated.  The groom's cake paid homage to his favorite band, The Grateful Dead.  At the end of the night, guests waved glow sticks as the newlyweds made their exit. 


A huge congratulations to Louisa and Philip!!!
