Amanda and Brad’s, The Farm A Gathering Place, wedding absolutely blew us away. This wedding was my first back after my maternity leave. And I truly couldn’t have chosen a more perfect day! I was beyond ready to get back into the wedding day environment. Surrounded by love and happiness (and some really gorgeous cocktails).
Amanda and Brad met on Hinge. That falls close to my heart because my husband and I met on Tinder (modern-day love, huh?). When Amanda and I had our pre-wedding consult, she stressed the importance of capturing their friends and family in a relaxed setting. Although they prioritized wedding photography, they wanted it in a way that embraced their true selves. The vibe of the day was all about the guests mingling, having cocktails, and laughing across the table from one another.
Because of this, the couple chose to share a First Look. This gave us tons of extra time before the ceremony to get photos done so that they could go straight into party mode! However, having a First Look doesn’t mean that your wedding photography is put on the backburner. We were able to get plenty of incredible photos all before the ceremony even began.
THE FARM A GATHERING PLACE
If you are looking for an outdoor wedding venue in Asheville, The Farm is honestly a catch. They recently added their outdoor patio which, in my opinion, is a total upgrade. Holy smokes, it’s absolutely breathtaking. And it’s a perfect spot for a rainy day backup. A few of our favorite areas on the venue property are the Chicken Chapel and the wildflower garden. The Chicken Chapel is pretty much exactly as it sounds. It’s a tiny, chapel-shaped chicken coop that is emptied out and turned into a dreamy photo area.
