Today’s sweet real wedding comes to us from Amber Jones of Southern Jewel Photography, based in Greer, South Carolina! Here’s Amber to tell us more about the happy couple and their big day:

This simple yet elegant wedding in Asheville, NC took place at Immaculate Conception Church in Forest City, NC and then the immediately followed by their wedding reception at Homewood in Asheville, NC. This was a day that I had been looking forward to as Homewood is an absolutely gorgeous venue. Rafael and Jenifer are a sweet, fun couple that I couldn’t wait to watch seal their vows and celebrate their love!

See more after the cut!

It was less than a year ago that Rafael took Jenifer to a festival in Hillsborough, NC and dropped to one knee on a bridge for her hand in marriage. Little did Jenifer know, but her family was waiting nearby as well to celebrate their new engagement.This wedding was so much fun. We even got some great umbrella shots (which I love by the way) when the rain came around for a few, but that didn’t stop us for one second!

We were even able to get some more couples shots later when the light was even better. Those became some of my instant favorites; they are just so amazing! The light was perfect and they are so genuinely in love, it made for some pretty awesome couples portraits if I do say so! Congrats to the happy couple and best wishes!
