Stephanie and Adam will be married in November, in the Champagne Cellar, at the Biltmore Estate. This will be an intimate ceremony with just family attending, which I think is wonderful! I love the Champagne Cellar, as the ambiance is so romantic and unique. I truly think they made the perfect choice for their wedding location. Stephanie and Adam have been a couple since December of 2007, and they were engaged a little over a year ago. Check out their amazing engagement photos by Parker J Pfister, and read more about them below…
How did you meet each other?
We met through mutual friends. My childhood best friend had been dating his good friend for nearly eight years, and somehow, we had never met. When they decided to tie the knot, they introduced us, and we have been together ever since.
When did you get engaged, and how did he ask?
We have been engaged since October of 2009. We decided to stay Adam’s family’s farmhouse one weekend to spend some time together relaxing and unwinding. We were sitting in the great room next to the fire talking about our plans for the future. All of the sudden, Adam knelt down and asked me to marry him. It was completely spontaneous, and it felt totally right.
What do you two do for a living?
Stephanie is a corporate attorney, and Adam is in his third year of medical school. He plans to pursue a residency in dermatology.
What are some of the activities that you like to do together as a couple?
We are serious foodies, so we love to spend time dining together. We also really enjoy traveling, and we are looking forward to our first trip to Europe together this spring for our honeymoon. Adam fancies himself a movie critic, so we take every opportunity we have to watch movies. We have a minor obsession with our dogs, Bitsy and Beau, and love to spend time with them.
Why did you choose the Biltmore Estate as your wedding location?
Despite living so close to Asheville, neither of us had ever visited the Biltmore. We knew we wanted a really romantic setting for our intimate wedding, and when we saw the Champagne Cellar, we knew it was perfect. We are hoping to start a new tradition of visiting on our anniversaries to remember our very first visit – our wedding.
When you think about your wedding, what are you most excited about?
We are really thrilled to be spending a lovely day with each other and our parents. Mostly though, we are excited to be married and to continue our lives together, but as husband and wife. Oh yeah…and the food.
What do you love about each other?
Stephanie: What I love about Adam is…a laundry list of his characteristics, but topping the list is how he brings out my very best. He challenges me and supports me. I love his trustworthiness, dependability, and loyalty. He loves me at my very best and my very worst; he is my rock. Did I mention he is devastatingly handsome?
Adam: What I love about Stephanie is…the way our personalities complement each other. She is caring, understanding and loving. She is my everything, and I can’t wait to be married to her.
Anything else you would want people to know?
We have been incredibly fortunate to find one another, and we are forever grateful to our families and friends for their continued love and support.
