Fontaine Vineyards Wedding | Anthony & Shannon
What a fun, laid back wedding! We had a blast with Anthony & Shannon and have enjoyed getting to know these two. They are one of those infectious couples who are loved by everyone who meets them. A gorgeous pair and hilarious too! You may remember these two from their awesome downtown Asheville engagement session. We are so excited to finally be sharing their wedding day which also took place in Asheville. For their special day they chose Fontaine Vineyards, a beautiful little French vineyard tucked away in the NC mountains.
These two were absolutely smitten to see each other when Shannon came walking down the aisle. They were both grinning from ear-to-ear and the energy between them was insane! It is so obvious to everyone who knows them, how connected these two really are. We also adore the story of how they met… Shannon worked at a local restaurant and Anthony was working as a bank teller down the street. Everyday that Shannon worked, she had to take a deposit to the bank that Anthony was working at. Small talk for close to a year was all they had until one night while Shannon was out with friends, noticed Anthony sitting nearby. She went up and tapped him on the shoulder, and the rest is history!
We were loving the vibes of this wedding and especially the trust we received from Anthony & Shannon. The day was partly cloudy and calling for some rain later in the afternoon. But Shannon was too excited about seeing Anthony to worry about the weather. We are so thankful for laid back brides like her! And after we finished up some bride & groom photos in the vineyards we decided it could be fun to steal the couple away later in the evening to capture the last bit of daylight, come rain or shine. Anthony & Shannon agreed! They said, “if it rains, it rains!” We love that they fully embraced whatever their day had in store for them. You can feel their relaxed vibe from the photos, which is always the goal for us. Luckily, the downpour held off until we had wrapped up their photos in the vineyard but watching the crazy blue storm clouds roll in over the mountain tops was just the gorgeous scenery Anthony & Shannon were hoping for. We think, they couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day!
Anthony & Shannon’s special day consisted of lots of laughing, joyful tears, and awesome mountain views. As the downpour of rain rolled in, the band cranked up the music, and the couple’s happy guests piled under the tent to dance the night away. What a fantastic ending to a wonderful day!
Anthony & Shannon, you guys rock! Thanks for letting us be a part of your killer day!!
