I had the best time swarming the halls of this breath taking piece of history here with these two . Not many know about this hidden gem . Actually I had never heard of it until my mother told me about Swannanoa Palace about 4 years ago . Connor and I have been up here a few times over the years and each time we come we are taken away by its beauty and the mystery behind the mansion . Although we have never stepped foot inside until now . Swannanoa Palace has to be one the most interesting breathtaking places I have ever stepped foot in . I mean this is truly a photographers dream come true to photograph .

Where do I begin, first off its been so hard to not post these, and now that I can share these with you all, I could not be happier ! First off I want to say a huge thank you to Heidi Baker at The Trivium Estate for letting us use your beautiful venue ! Ashley wanted a classic setting for her bridals and country as well , which is lastly we ended up at Sierra Vista where she and Cory were just married this past Saturday . We love Sierra Vista , the views there are just breath taking . So yes Im very biased , this bridal just very well may be my all time fav!

 

Ahhhh PEONIES , Have I told you how much I love peonies ! This is one of my favorite bouquets , Ashley had this done by a family friend , she has great taste I must say !

I can not say enough how much I adore Emily, she is just so down to earth and funny as can be , and she loves Taco Bell as much as Connor and I both do . I have been sitting on these images for about 2 months now , I have been biting my nails to not post them . Although I did not photograph her wedding , Emily actually was the winner of a contest and won this session and MUA and hair with Laci Fore Makeup Artistry .  We are so glad that we got to get to know you better Emily  and not only are you a client but a dear friend as well.
