Katie and Matt’s Garden Wedding

I just LOVE this wedding.  Katie and Matt’s wedding was intimate, welcoming and simply sweet.  The ceremony took place in the Walled Garden followed by a dinner reception in the Butterfly Gardens in front of the Conservatory on the Biltmore Estate.  Beautiful flowers and greenery surround this little piece of paradise on the Biltmore grounds, and it is by far one of my favorite places for an intimate wedding.  So thrilled for Katie and Matt, and thank you Rachael McIntosh for capturing their wedding so perfectly.  Enjoy!

Kira + Jack’s Biltmore Wedding Part I

Kira and Jack….and actress and a chef from New York, were married at the Lioncrest on the Biltmore Estate this past fall.  Blossoms knocked it out of the park with their floral design.  So many fun details and so many focused on pigs!  Pig escort cards, pig ring bearer boxes, roasted pig, pigs on the bar, and pigs on their invites.  So freakin’ adorable.  Plus I must say that Kira had one of the most fun bridal parties ever.  They were so supportive, constantly made her laugh, and their love for her was truly fierce.  I just adored them.  Thank you to Jill, with Realities Photography, for making this day all that more enjoyable by your presence and by taking some fabulous photos!  Look out for Part II!

Babies, Babies, Babies!

So, I know I am a wedding planner, but I had to share some of the fun details of a baby shower I had the honor of co-hosting with one of my besties, Aubrey.  This was not just a baby shower for one couple, but two couples who are due around the same time this Spring.  Sometimes it is nice to step away from work, yet still be designing and planning an event.  Aubrey and I think a lot alike, and although both couples are having boys, we wanted decided to steer away from your typical BLUE that is expected.  We fell in love with the combo of orange and gray, and it turned out exactly like we imagined.  Even though this shower was held at the lovely Lioncrest at Biltmore, we did not want too fancy of a menu.  Babies grow up to be kids….and so we did a complete kid’s menu…just adultified slightly (yes, I just made up that word).  The food was amazingly delicious, and I want to eat everything all over again (preferably on a daily basis).  In the end, it was such a blast…not only to be a part, but to see these two couples glowing with the knowledge that their lives are about to completely change in the most amazing way.  So so thrilled for them!  Praying for good health for these precious baby boys, and easy deliveries for the mamas!

So glad Rachael McIntosh was there to snap all the details!

 

I loved every single piece that Meredith, with Merrily Written, did for us….this wonderful chalkboard menu and all the signs at the food/beverage stations.  I mean look at this menu…tell me you are not drooling?

Thank you to Party Tables for the fabulous linens, and Classic Event Rental for the lounge areas!The Inn on Biltmore Floral Team added such a sweet touch with their orange and white flowersAll the right toppings for our hot chocolate and coffee bar…even homemade orange marshmallows…yum!

Raimey and Andrew’s Biltmore Wedding Part I

Raimey and Andrew are a couple that you meet and you know immediately that they just ‘work’.  The chemistry is there, the love is there, but there is something else…a kindred spirit, an interlocking of beliefs, and a love for family.  Raimey has a daughter ‘Goose’, who is simply radiant, and Andrew loves that little girl with all that he has.  That alone would make any girl swoon, and fortunately, that girl was Raimey.  She is gorgeous, ambitious, tenderhearted, and yet she can hunt with the big boys!  When she first sent me her hunting pictures, I about died!  I would not mess with that one.  So needless to say, putting together their wedding at the Diana, on the Biltmore Estate, was super fun and simply a dream.  We created a more rustic, southern atmosphere for the ceremony and cocktail hour, but when their guests walked into the dinner reception they were dazzled with a timeless look of black and white.  So beautiful!  Thank you, Brian Sumner Photography for the amazing pictures!  I am honored to share them with all of you…here is Part I!

April + Trevor’s Magical Wedding Part I

So, I have been behind on blogging, and for that I apologize!  For my very first post of 2016 I could not think of a better wedding, nor a better couple, to share with you!  April and Trevor were married at the Deerpark on the majestic Biltmore Estate.  Working with April and Trevor was a dream come true, as not only were they so fun to work with, but throughout the process they became dear friends.  Even my son fell in love with April and has aspirations to steal her heart away from Trevor one day (don’t worry, he is 4)!  At least my little guy has fabulous taste, as she is GORGEOUS…and Trevor ain’t so bad either.  🙂

The wedding day was perfection…from the first look to the last dance.   To see the love and support from their friends and family made my heart happy.  No doubt these two were meant to be together.  Thank you to One Moment One Shot for the amazing photographs of such a special day, to The Bloom Room for the floral design, to Classic Event Rental for the beautiful tent, draping and lighting, and to their DJ, Speed Demon’s Entertainment, for keeping the night flowing and fun.  Also, please check out this film of the day by BNR Productions…love reliving this day!

Enjoy Part I!

Melisa + Jackson’s Fall Wedding Part I

So it has been a little over a year since Melisa and Jackson were married on the Biltmore Estate, but I can’t think of a more perfect time to actually blog their wedding.  Why?  Because this past weekend Jackson’s sister, Amelia, was married so I was able to see them again!  I couldn’t be happier to be a part of two weddings with these precious families!  I absolutely adore Melisa and Jackson…they completely light up a room, everyone around them adores them, and they are some of the kindest people I have gotten the pleasure to work with.  The weather on their wedding day was fall-like…chilly, but gorgeous.  I am so delighted to share these photos with you.

Once again, I was able to work with Graham and Samantha from Graham Terhune Photography, and not only are they amazing people, but incredible artists.  Enjoy Part I!

And please check out their amazing film by Inkspot Crow Films.  SO GOOD!  Click here!
