Photographer, Arika Jordan, shares Max & Sam's intimate mountain wedding in Asheville, NC. Their day was full of colorful, vintage inspired details and joyful celebration with their closest friends and family.
Arika: Sam is a professional dancer and Max is a part of the Marine Core. They live in Wilmington, NC but decided to escape to the Mountains for their daytime wedding. They are amazingly laid back, and go with the flow even with all the thunderstorms threatened their outdoor ceremony & reception.
Sam got ready at a very unique salon that really captured the free-spirited feel of Asheville. We started the day at 8 am and headed over to the Botanical Gardens at 10:30 am to prepare for their ceremony. There were scattered thunderstorms all day, and as a precaution, they got a tent for their reception. The rain held off during the ceremony and some quick family & bridal party. It down-poured through lunch & the first part of the reception, but thankfully it was beautiful fluffy white clouds afterward. Guest had fun playing games, and dancing, before heading out! The bride & groom hosted an after party at a local brewery after dinner that night as well.
