Drew and Ashley Carlisle are Married!

Saturday, August 28th, 2010

Drew and Ashley are two very close friends of ours! Drew was the best man in our wedding! We became friends to Drew and Ashley while at Erskine College. I would stay up late nights in the dorm working on photos and fun photoshop projects with Drew! He always critiqued my photography and helped shape my style of photography!

Drew and Ashley were friends in college, however were not dating. After they graduated, they both worked in China teaching English as part of the ESL program. Drew and Ashley grew close together and started dating. Drew finished his masters in graphic design at Bob Jones University. Now they are married!

They were wed at Neely’s Creek ARP Church in Rock Hill, SC!

Vermont

Wednesday, August 11th, 2010

Before and after Robert and Becky’s wedding, we were able to travel all around Vermont! The Maffin’s were wonderful for letting us stay with them a few nights and the Fick’s booked a bed and breakfast for us at the Inn at Buck Hollow Farm for the rest of our stay! We toured around mostly the north and west side of Vermont.

The trees are from a field in Georgia (the town in Vermont not the state!) we passed by a few times. The church in the city is in downtown Burlington. There’s an amazing restaurant called Shanty on the Shore where there’s an amazing dish called Parmesan Calamari! The covered bridge is on Highway 108 in Stowe. The barn and field were in Fairfax. The flowers are at the Shelburne Museum, where we spent almost a whole day! The museum was started by Electra Webb and held everything from Monet paintings, carriages, Ansel Adams photographs, original toys from the 1800’s and early 1900’s, a lighthouse, covered bridge, round barn, and even a steam boat! It’s an antiquer’s dream! The old truck was outside a fun cider mill, where we stopped for cider donuts and souvenirs! The tower is at Shelburne Farms. The two waterfalls are Bingham Falls (bottom) and Moss Glen Falls (top) in Stowe. They were both less than 20 minute hikes.

The next few photos we took on our hike up Mount Mansfield, the tallest mountain in Vermont. This was nearing the top of the mountain.

Here’s a view from the top of Mount Mansfield. It was a gorgeous day to look out! It was so clear, you could see Lake Champlain and New York from where we were!

The angle and vantage point I was taking this photo from, makes it look almost like I’m using a tilt-shift lens.

I just loved the clouds, textures, contrast and shades of gray between the mountain tops!

Here are a few paintings we saw at the Shelburne Museum from artists such as Claude Monet, Edgar Degas, and Edouard Manet! We were able to get right in front of these paintings. You could see the amazing details!

It was a must that we visited the Ben and Jerry factory! My favorite flavor is Fossil Fuel and Marissa’s is Half Baked. We weren’t allowed to take pictures on the factory tour. They told us that there could be a Häagen-Dazs spy among us. He he!

Being around Robert and Becky you can tell that Christ is at the center of their relationship!

Their wedding was the first wedding at their church since it was built in March. It still had the fresh paint smell on the inside.

Marissa got so excited when she asked Becky if she had any ideas of where to take the dress pictures and Becky told her she was thinking of hanging it from a tree! Marissa just loves being able to hang the dress from trees and other outdoor scenery because the lighting really makes the dress sparkle, and here she found the perfect tree with a cool old barn in the background!

The bridal party sat at a table at the head of the room. Every time someone hit their glasses with a fork, Robert and Becky had to kiss! This was the anticipation moment right before the kiss!
