Mountain View Wedding at Crest Center & Pavilion | Mallory & Peter

Weddings are always a beautiful celebration of two people commiting to a lifetime together. Family & friends come to honor & celebrate two becoming one. This mountain view wedding at Crest Center & Pavilion in Asheville, NC was even more powerful due to Mallory & Peter’s commitment and sacrifice for our country.

Mallory & Peter

You see, Mallory & Peter are both are part of our U.S. Army. Their relationship started back in bootcamp and has seen all the ups and downs that most relationships incure. However, these two have had it extra hard having to spend sometimes months upon months apart due to deployment. When we last met for their Blowing Rock engagement session, they were about to spend almost a year apart! I was all together a bundle of emotions knowing that just weeks after that session they’d have to say goodbye. I think it’s still one of my favorite sessions to date. When they reunited state side they had a blissful 4 months to finish planning and get things ready for their big day. But it didn’t take long for their country to call on them again and now they’re spending several months serving apart. I tell you all of this not to create pitty for them, but rather to set the emotional scene of their wedding day. I don’t think two people have ever celebrated harder! This day was truly joy-filled and all of their waiting and sacrifice was well worth a party like this!

Crest Pavilion

On the day of their wedding, Asheville was at it’s best. The sun was shining, mountains were in full view, and Crest Pavilion rocked it as they always do. Huge shout out to Tammy who lead up the coordination for that day. She was a ton of help and a joy to work with! She helped all of our fellow wedding vendors and made Mallory & Peter’s vision come to life. So when it came time for the big moment, everything ran flawlessly. We even got done early and had extra time for wedding portraits. Y’all that’s the rarest of the rare for us and we gladly took advantage of it. Fast forward to the party, Sound Extreme killed it and the dance floor was filled all night long. Mallory & Peter’s guest sure knew how to party!

At the end of the evening, while taking night portraits, I asked Mallory & Peter if their wedding was all they had dreamed it would. After almost two years of planning, months spent apart, and the stress of planning a wedding while over seas, the answer was a resounding YES! We couldn’t be more thrilled and excited for these two to be husband and wife! It was a true honor to capture every moment for you!
