Now on the Rebecca and Ryan’s rehearsal dinner at the Biltmore Estate. After rehearsing for the big day, the storm clouds dissipated, and the family and bridal party gathered on the Loggia to toast their marriage. Rebecca and Ryan worked with Biltmore’s winemaker, Bernard, to create a special dosage just for their wedding weekend. Tears flowed, laughter ensued, and we even got to see a saber sword fight between Ryan and his brother, Bill. Such incredible moments to witness! Thank you, again, to Woodward + Rick for these pictures!

Adore Chase and Clary…one of my fabulous couples! Don’t worry, I’ll blog their wedding too!Then it was on to Diana for the rehearsal dinner where many of their other guests joined them in the celebration. Rebecca and Ryan made it so personal with pictures on every table of their family and friends. Also, Rebecca is extremely crafty as you will come to know, and she created the table numbers with dried flowers. One of my favorite touches, was Rebecca’s great grandmothers vanity filled with special items from both her family and Ryan’s. The evening was a laid back, light-hearted affair with a breathtaking backdrop of the Biltmore House and Blue Ridge Mountains.
