Emily and Austin got married on May the Fourth (National Star Wars day, for any unaware) and had lots of awesome celestial details from their blue color scheme to Emily's starry nails and galaxy pumps - which had a nice little Star Wars reference on them for any fellow fans out there!
The ceremony took place on Mt.Mitchell, but the mountain was a bit fierce that day with umbrella breaking winds (literally, my umbrella broke!), frigid temperatures and a rain that fluctuated between spitting and a steady downpour. We did the ceremony as planned (these two and their family were storm troopers!) and then did the portrait session - which you see here - the following day in the beautiful Asheville Botanical Gardens.
The little cutie you see peeking out in some of these pictures is their lovely pup Alba! We learned during that shoot that dogs are not actually allowed in the botanical gardens, so in the future I'll make sure that we leave our four legged friends behind when shooting in this beautiful space to protect and honor it.
Thank you for reading and May the Fourth be with you.
