Chrissy & Charlie | A Foodie’s Dream Wedding in the Mountains of Asheville

When Chrissy & Charlie started planning their wedding, they knew they wanted it to include three things: their closest family and friends, great food and booze, and zero drama. Mission: accomplished.
The wedding took place in a rented home atop one of the beautiful mountains surrounding Asheville – close enough to pop down for a beer at Wicked Weed, but far enough to feel like it was its own private world. The only people in attendance aside from their thirty nearest and dearest were two fantastic cooks imported from Durham to help cater the evening and Annemie and me, there to document the fun. Charlie is a chef and owns a few (great) restaurants in town – Jujube in Chapel Hill, and Dos Perros and Juju in Durham – so food was a big priority. The menu centered around oysters and pizza, and was as amazing to photograph as it was to eat. The decor and flowers were designed by Chrissy and executed by her mom, sister, and a few close friends. The booze focused on their favorites: bourbon (Four Roses, specifically), bubbly, and Fernet. And to start it all off, their lovely and very personal ceremony was conducted by their friend Geoff, setting the tone for a wedding that felt more like a really kick-ass dinner party honoring friends than anything pulled from a magazine or pinterest board.
Chrissy and Charlie (and Benji!), thanks again for inviting me to be a part of your weekend… it was a true pleasure!
