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!

Rachael + Kevin

Throwing it back again to 2015, when Rachael and Kevin were married on a perfect day at Claxton Farm.  Just thinking about this couple, and Rachael’s mom brings a warmness to my heart.   The fun they had at this wedding with their friends and family was simply contagious.  I love everything about Claxton….the views, the fields, Chocolate Chip (their llama), the goats and cows.   You can’t help but be relaxed when you step on to the property, as it just brings you to a place that feels like home.   I think you will see that when looking through these beautiful pictures by Jill with Realities Photography.

Lauren + Tim’s Biltmore Wedding I

Lauren and Tim…they keep you smiling because they are constantly smiling.  Plus they have two adorable bull dogs…Max and Bob, which also keep you smiling.  🙂  Smiles all around!  I relished the time that we had planning their wedding, as they were not only an awesome couple to be around, but they seemed to truly enjoy the process.  They trusted the vendors they had in place, which made our jobs not even seem like jobs!  Thank you, Lauren and Tim, for simply being incredible people who love each other deeply, and through your overflow, others are blessed.  People like you make me love what I do even more.  Lauren and Tim’s wedding took place at the Diana at the Biltmore Estate.  Thank you, Hannah Hudson, for the beautiful pictures and for the pleasure of getting to work with you.  Here is 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!

Laura + Eric’s Biltmore Wedding Part I

In honor of 4th of July, I wanted to finally post the wedding of two absolutely fabulous people, Laura and Eric!  Their wedding took place at the Lioncrest on Biltmore Estate last July 4th, so I thought this would be a very appropriate wedding to post this week!  Laura and Eric are simply fantastic inside and out.  They are an adventurous, fun-loving, spontaneous, and beautiful couple who lived in Dubai throughout the entire wedding planning process.  They met on a plane when they sat across the aisle from one another, had their first dates while traveling the world, and finally were engaged while in the Maldives.  A romantic beginning to their lives together!  I am so excited to share this wedding with you, and to once again show off the work of the talented Jeremy Russell!   Also, please check out Laura and Eric’s wedding trailer by Hart to Heart Media.  Click here to view.  I caution you…you WILL fall in love with this couple simply by watching…

Amy + Jay

Amy and Jay were married on a gorgeous and warm day last summer, and it was simply beautiful.  Their ceremony took place at the North Carolina Arboretum, which is a perfect setting for an intimate ceremony surrounded by God’s creation.  I just love this place.  Then guests made their way to the heart of downtown Asheville to enjoy dinner and dancing at On Broadway.   Made me completely happy to have red as the main color for the design…I adore its boldness!   Thank you Jeremy Russell Photography for your talent…enjoy these pictures of the day.

Lauren + Bryan Part I

Lauren and Bryan…fabulously elegant, incredibly smart, and I feel like they stepped into this time from a past era.  They wanted Gatsby, they wanted big band, they wanted high class…this is just who they are.  There couldn’t be a more perfect setting for such a wedding than the Biltmore Estate where time stands still, and you can feel the history all around you.  Parker J was a fantastic choice, as his artistry could not be more in tune with what they wanted to capture.  Loved them, loved their vision, and I am happy to share it with you. Thank you to an incredible team:
