Appalachian Wildlife Refuge + Atelier Maison Fundraiser

I had the honor of attending and photographing the back to the wild event supporting Appalachian Wildlife Refuge, hosted by Atelier Maison. First of all, the weather could not have been more accommodating for a late September evening. The sunshine and light breeze paired perfectly with the 3 piece live band. Sierra Nevada and Dripolator coffee provided beverages while Roots Hummus, White Wine + Butter, and Lean Meats Company provided small bites. The goal was to raise money and awareness for Appalachian Wildlife Refuge, a non profit based in Western North Carolina. Their mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and release injured and orphaned animals. Atelier Maison is an incredible 20,000 square foot facility providing healthy, design-forward furniture, accessories, and their own exclusive line of green, envy-worthy pieces. It was an event for the books, and together they raised close to $7,000 for Appalachian Wild! Here are some of my favorite photos from the evening.
