We are suckers for a beautiful fall wedding! Throw the most adorable dog into the mix and it doesn't get much better! Captured by North Carolina wedding photographer MCSWEEN PHOTOGRAPHY, Coty & Chris had to downsize their wedding in the wake of Covid and opted for an outdoor celebration for this reason too.
In Coty's words, she says, "Turns out the key to planning a wedding in a pandemic is keeping your eyes on the prize." After a cocktail hour at THE CAPITAL CLUB where the couple shared their tear-filled vows among a small gathering of their friends and family, a fun reception to celebrate this gorgeous couple was next on the agenda! Chris, Coty, and all their guests made their way to THE VENUE in downtown Asheville for a sit-down dinner. Coty and Chris's family and friends near and dear toasted to their future. Then everyone joined in the dancing delight! Coty and Chris kicking it off with their fantastic and fun first dance to an amazing live band. The evening ended with a sparkler exit and Coty and Chris being whisked away in a vintage car. The perfect end to such a perfect day.
Prior to this, the couple shared a first look in front of a quaint waterfall at the Inn. Tanya of MCSWEEN PHOTOGRAPHY tells us, "It was the perfect start to their beautiful day. After their first look, the couple rounded off their time at the Inn taking photos with their families and bridal party with the perfect fall foliage in the background. Then everyone was picked up by the trolley that whisked them away to Pack Square in the heart of Asheville for a few more photos."
