Asheville Henna :: Henna for Houston

One of the things we love the most about our StudioWed Asheville wedding vendors is their willingness and drive to give back to the community. This past weekend, Julie with Asheville Henna took her artistry to Woolworth Walk, and spent the afternoon creating beautiful henna creations to raise money for Brother Wolf Animal Rescue and their search and rescue efforts for the animals affected by the hurricane.

The work that she did was absolutely beautiful, and she was able to raise both money and awareness to aid in the efforts in Houston! asheville-henna-001   asheville-henna- asheville-henna-001 asheville-henna-001 If you are looking for an Asheville henna artist for your wedding day, you should go ahead and stop looking :) Julie is not only talented, but she’s also an awesome person. Take a moment to visit her website for details on how to schedule an appointment! And if you need proof that she’s a master… check out this gorgeous image from her Instagram.

7.5 hours and 8 elephants? We’re impressed :)

Asheville Dance Studio :: I Do Dances

Part of planning your wedding includes making decisions about music…and even more specifically, includes choosing a first dance. I Do Dances is an amazing Asheville dance studio who will work with you to create a personalized choreographed first dance for you and your guests to enjoy on your wedding day.

We love this description of the first dance tradition from their website:

The First Dance celebrates and symbolizes the beginning of your new life together. What a perfect opportunity to turn what could potentially be an awkward, uncomfortable moment in to an outrageously fun bonding experience that you and your guests will be talking about for years.

No matter what kind of dance you’re looking for—swanky and smooth or funky and offbeat—we’ll make sure you’re looking good.

You feel comfortable with your dancing ability? Great, we’ll show it off! Your knees knock together with the thought of dancing in public AND you have no experience? Not a problem. We know the secret to tapping the treasure of your undiscovered dance talent. It WILL reveal itself.

Our only non-negotiable rule is that you have FUN! Planning a wedding can be stressful enough. Consider this your play time!


And the process of creating a choreographed first dance with I Do Dances is super simple!

1. Choose your music.

2. Meet with Kathleen so she can learn a little bit about you two and what you want out of your dance.

3. Kathleen will choreograph your personalized dance.

4. Meet again to teach you the dance and make a video of you dancing for use in your future rehearsals.

5. You rehearse whenever you get stressed out (remember, dance is a stress reliever) or want to have fun.

6. You dance yourself married!

Seems like a no brainer to us!



Asheville Wedding Photographer :: Sunday Grant

Spring is in full force here in Asheville, and this weekend looks to be a preview of things to come this summer with temperatures in the 80’s (already! It’s not even May yet!)…so of course, we’re already dreaming of fall. We were looking back through Asheville wedding photographer Sunday Grant’s Instagram page, and these gorgeous images from last fall made us long for those crisp evenings and gorgeous colors!  


Fall is my love language. #ashevillewedding #828isgreat #thestysthelimit #ashevilleweddingphotographer

Asheville Hotels :: Aloft Asheville

While planning your Asheville wedding, regardless of whether you’re a local, or whether you’re planning a destination event,  there’s a big chance that you are going to need a hotel. There are SO many Asheville hotels for you to choose from…we thought we’d help your search by sharing one of our favorites with you. Aloft Asheville Downtown is not just a lovely venue for both ceremonies and receptions, it is also an awesome space for your guests. It’s located in the heart of downtown, walking distance from some wonderful local eats (and drinks!), and the atmosphere is perfect for those who love the urban side of Asheville.


And don’t worry… your guests will still have a stunning view of our mountains!



And just for fun… here are three recent posts from their Instagram page that made us love them even more!
