Jake and Mitch’s Asheville Wedding {LGBT Wedding Photographer in Asheville}

While many states in the US have started legalizing same sex marriages, North Carolina has yet to cross that threshold.  These two WONDERFUL human beings stepped up to the marriage license plate (no pun intended) and were among the first to be passed along TO the Attorney General’s office from the Asheville Register of Deeds in October of last year. A great step for Southern Equality and the LGBTQ family here in the south.

In May of this year, they went to New York and were legally married in the big apple but really wanted to celebrate that union with their close friends and family. On July 12th, they met that goal and renewed their vows with friends and family here in Asheville. If I hadn’t been so busy taking pictures, I may even have cried.  Gentlemen, it was an honor. Thank You.

XoXo,

Cat

PS – One of my FAVORITE pictures of the two of you. I couldn’t resist ❤
