Michelle and Chris are Married!

Saturday, June 12th, 2010

Chris and Michelle were married at Bonclarken. It’s a Christian camp located in Flat Rock, NC, near the Flat Rock Playhouse and the Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church’s first choice for hosting many of their events and retreats. The Heidelberg Hotel, an iconic image of Bonclarken, seen in the photo below,was built in 1886! It features 19 rooms and 4 suites!

Chris and Michelle went to school at Erskine College, mine and Marissa’s Alma Mater. We knew them from Erskine and were so excited to hear of their engagement and honored when they asked us to photograph their wedding!

Chris gave his groomsmen traditionally crafted pocket watches with their names on them for the groomsmen’s gifts. The guys were full of laughs!

The flower girl was too cute! All of Michelle’s bridesmaids were so sweet! Many of them were friends from college, and had plenty of fun stories to tell about their time together at Erskine.

Michelle and her father right before she walked down the isle. I always love these tender moments, they make for such emotional pictures! Chris and Michele were married outside, in the outdoor amphitheater at Bonclarken. It was a very hot day, but the wedding was beautiful and sunshiny with the ironic addition of thunder in the distance!

Michelle’s brother-in law Rhett, started the ceremony and her father officiated the rest. It’s always really special when the father of the bride is the pastor! I don’t know how they do it without crying!

Michelle and Chris are filled with so much joy and happiness! Just look at those smiles!

Michele is such a lovely lady, she has the most adorable smile! I love how she crinkles her nose when she laughs, it’s such an infectious happiness! You know that the guy who marries her has to be a super special guy to deserve her, and Chris really is great! He completely adores Michele, you can see in his eyes and the way he looks at her, that he’s totally head over heels for her, and she returns his affection with huge smiles and loving eyes!

There was dancing, a beautiful cake and a lot of wonderful friends and family at the reception! Everything was apple orchard themed because Chris proposed at the Sky Top Orchard just down the road from Bonclarken. There were baskets full of apples and surrounded by wreaths of apple blossoms decorating the entire reception!

I can’t help but laugh every time the bride and groom are about to depart, because you always see them look at each and say “are you ready” as they duck and prepare to be pummeled by bird seeds!

Seeds in the air, seeds in their hair, seeds everywhere!

Michelle and Chris still have some bird seeds in there hair after they got in the car, which they had to remove countless balloons and bouncy balls in order to do so! Michelle’s brother, John even attached a kite to the top of the Jeep and we saw it take flight as they drove off!

Michelle’s and Chris’ wedding was so sweet and special! They had amazing friends and family there that support them and wish the best for them! The day went perfect! It was thundering and cloudy some, however the rain held off right up until the moment they walked into the reception hall, and stopped just before their departure! How awesome is that! We hope you are enjoying your honeymoon in Jamaica!

We took Michelle’s bridal photos at the North Carolina Arboretum in Asheville, NC!

We started off in a beautiful quilt garden! There was a big gust of wind that blew up Michelle’s veil, it was everything she could do to keep from laughing! Her mom and sister came running around to help keep her hair in place with lots of hairspray and bobby pins! When Michelle first got out of the van we even saw curling irons plugged into the lighter! Now that’s how you keep your hair always looking perfect!

When Michelle arrived in her mom’s van with several of her friends we new we were going to be able to get lots of good smiling shots! But of course it made it that much harder for Michelle to keep a straight face, but she did a beautiful job, as you can see!

It was pretty windy, so the wind picked Michelle’s veil right up!

There’s that awesome smile I was talking about! I love Michele’s smile, its so unique and cute, the way she crinkles her nose!

I love her shoes! Who says bridal shoes have to be white? Green is my favorite color! When you throw in some yellow, it’s a perfect color combination!

We had fun taking Michelle’s bridal photos! There were tons of bugs at the Arboretum, but Marissa and Michelle’s sister stood there fanning her to try and keep the bugs away from both her face and the shots! I’m sure Michelle enjoyed that a whole bunch! haha! The arboretum had several great places for bridals, unfortunately it started to rain before we could go to a few, but we did get plenty of awesome shots!
