Natalie Chapman + Thomas Hibbs
Cosmopolitan Wedding at
The Mountain Lodge
Flat Rock, NC
Natalie and her love, Thomas, hosted their romantic wedding celebration at The Mountain Lodge in Flat Rock, North Carolina just outside of Asheville, NC. They choose this Asheville venue due to its close proximity to Asheville, Hendersonville, and Brevard. It is literally surround by some of the most beautful mountains in Western North Caronlina.
The original plan was to have the ceremony outdoors by the waterfall. However the weather had different plans. The beautiful sitting room in the Mountain Lodge with it 2 story fireplace instead served as a back drop.
The above image is actually a custom development process that we use, it is not black & white or sepia. Instead it is a process called split tone which we include a complete set of photos in split tone with all our wedding packages. In addition the online gallery of all your photos has the option to convert any photo to black and white.
All the floral arrangements + greenery were hand crafted by Sophie’s Garden. Greenery with bold colors is one of the wedding trends predicted for 2017!
Moments always come first in our wedding photography. We stand back and capture your candid moments as they truly tell your wedding day story.
The rain stopped and the sun came out just in time for some formals by the waterfall.
I rarely include formals on my site. If you are going through wedding photographers you have likely seen your fair share. If you would like to see the complete shoot including formal just let us know and we will be happy to give you access to the full gallery. Get in touch – Asheville Wedding Photographer
