Oh my goodness, this wedding was incredible… Bonnie and Josh certainly know how to have a good time. The Camp at Eseeola Lodge is definitely one of my favorite wedding venues in North Carolina. The view of Grandfather Mountain is so beautiful and the open air reception space has rustic elegance like you’ve never seen it before. It is just gorgeous. Bonnie and Josh and most of their guests came all the way from Florida to celebrate their wedding weekend. When I first met Bonnie and Josh for their engagement shoot at the Elk River Club in Banner Elk, I knew I was in for a treat on their wedding day. They are both so fun loving and easy going, and every minute with them is a party! Bonnie and Josh’s wedding bash was one to remember!! They had the most amazing band I have ever heard at a wedding, the Atlanta Showstoppers. They are seriously talented and total entertainers. I’ve never been quite so tempted to put my camera down and boogie on the dance floor as I was that night. Every part of this wedding day was overflowing with jaw-dropping beauty and crazy fun. Bonnie was so glamorous in her lace gown, and paired with her bridesmaids in their different sparkling dresses, they looked drop dead gorgeous! All of the pretty was fun to see, but the most wonderful part of Bonnie and Josh’s wedding day was definitely seeing the two of them so happy together. I guess I am sort of a joy junkie… I love to see people happy. I can’t help but absorb some of the good vibes and feel high on happiness. My job is so much fun. : ) I hope to photograph another Eseeola Lodge wedding in the future because it is one of my favorite venues ever!
I let Josh steal my camera and play photographer for a minute. Cracked me up. This kid knows how to have a good time.
Best wedding performer I have EVER seen! The Atlanta Showstoppers… I hope I have the opportunity to hear them again one day.
