Greta and Michael have been together for 5 years and 6 months, and are planning to wed in June of this year. The wedding and reception will take place at the beautiful Deerpark at The Biltmore Estate. It will be an amazing day! Please read more about this very special couple…
How did you meet each other?
We met in a class while attending California State University at San Marcos. I thought he was just so cute I had to sit next to him.
When did you get engaged, and how did he ask?
We got engaged January 12, 2011 at a Red Wood Forest near San Francisco. We took a hike to this beautiful waterfall and he got down on one knee and proposed to me. It was an intimate moment I will never forget.
What do you two do for a living?
Mike is an Optometrist (Eye Doctor) and I own my own pen business.
What are some of the activities that you like to do together as a couple?
Honestly we do everything together. But our favorite thing is traveling!
Why did you choose the Biltmore Estate as your wedding location?
I grew up going to the Smokey Mountains at least 2-3 times a year. It is some of my most favorite memories as a child, going on family vacations skiing, camping, etc. I think they are some of the most beautiful mountains in the world and it did not hurt that the gorgeous Biltmore Estate is right there at them. Biltmore is just absolutely breathtaking, it was the perfect Asheville/Mountain wedding venue. How could I not choose it, ; )
When you think about your wedding, what are you most excited about?
Seeing my fiancé waiting for me as my father walks me down the aisle.
What do you love about each other?
Greta: What I love about Mike is… His soul. He is the most intelligent, kind, generous, loving, selfless, thoughtful man I have ever met. When I am with him he makes me a better person and I love the way he makes me feel.
Mike: What I love about Greta is…her heart. She is the kindest, most generous person I have ever met. She loves me unconditionally and shows it every day. I also love her adventurous spirit, she can bring me out of my shell the way no one else can. In short, she makes me a better person and I feel complete when I am with her.
