Marisa and Brandon will be getting married in September at the Deerpark on The Biltmore Estate. I love September weddings, as the weather is cooling off, and everything is still lush and green. 🙂 Marisa and Brandon have been together for almost 5 and a half years, and they are both very ready to finally tie the knot. Read more about this adorable couple below and check out their sexy engagement photos…you can tell they have chemistry! 🙂
How did you meet each other?
We worked at the restaurant Carrabba’s together. Although co-workers, we hardly crossed paths and never spoke to one another until one enchanted evening when we encountered one another out in downtown Asheville. Marisa’s best friend and maid of honor Brittney kept pinching Brandon in the rear and pointing at Marisa. We danced the night away, and the rest is history!
When did you get engaged, and how did he ask?
Brandon rented out the upstairs of a popular Asheville bar and lounge the weekend before my 24th birthday and threw a huge party. On my actual birthday, Brandon took me to Hot Springs. We soaked in a mineral bath and enjoyed champagne and a couples’ massage. Brandon asked me to marry him while in the mineral bath overlooking the French Broad River.
What do you two do for a living?
Marisa is a registered nurse and works in a surgical ICU. Brandon works for the Asheville ABC Board, Carrabba’s Italian Grill, and is also a part time student.
What are some of the activities that you like to do together as a couple?
We love to vacation to the beach together, cook together and try new recipes, have dinner parties and bar-be-ques with our close friends and family, watch movies, play horseshoes, and work on do it yourself house projects.
Why did you choose the Deepark at The Biltmore Estate as your wedding location?
Deerpark is absolutely gorgeous, and encompasses what we both envisioned our wedding venue. The Biltmore Estate is such an important historical landmark in our hometown, and we wanted to share it with our out of town family and friends! Brandon is also an Asheville native.
When you think about your wedding, what are you most excited about?
Having all of our close friends and family at one giant celebration, and the Honeymoon!
What do you love about each other?

I adore Brandon’s kind heart, loyalty to his family and friends, and amazing work ethic. Most people who know Brandon well wouldn’t describe him as patient, but when it comes to me, he has all the patience in the world.
Brandon: What I love about Marisa is…
I love Marisa’s drive, motivation, bizarre sense of humor, her confidence, candidness, and straight to the point attitude. She motivates me each day to be a better person.
