Martha and Brian's Wedding at the Biltmore Estate

2/12/2010

The minute I met Martha and her mom, I know we were going to have so much fun planning this wedding.  Martha knew what she wanted, and she wanted it to be extravagant, elegant, sparkly, spectacular…with a smoky, sexy touch.  🙂  She chose the Lioncrest at the Biltmore Estate for the ceremony and reception…the perfect location.  The ceremony was held out on the veranda, and when the guests went upstairs for dinner, we transformed the veranda into the cocktail, dancing and lounge area.  We teamed up with Beth at Studio Flora Diva to create the flowers of Martha’s dreams (and she wanted lots of them!), and Beth did just that.  When Martha saw her reception and ceremony site, she literally gasped and yelled out how perfect everything was.  I love that kind of reaction!  Thank you to Martha and her sweet family for taking me a long this amazing ‘planning’ journey.  I am honored to know you all!
Once again, Parker Pfister, amazed us all with his brilliant photography.  Thank you, Parker, for getting all these photos to me so I can share them with the world!

Martha LOVES shoes, so she had three different pairs to get her through the entire day…two pairs of Jimmy Choos, and a pair of gorgeous Manolo Blahniks.  What every bride needs!
