Spring Wedding at Biltmore Estate | Asheville, NC

This was such a sweet spring wedding at Biltmore estate in the mountains of North Carolina a couple of weeks ago. Check out the little video montage and vendors involved at the bottom of the post but first, some favorite images of the day.

Jenny wore the same shoes she wore the day she first met Jake and I just loved that. We were lucky to get some fabulous spring weather in March as it had literally been snowing the weekend before and of course it's always a treat to have a couple of hours to take photographs around the property before all of the ceremonies started.

Another gorgeous wedding planned by Cortney of Asheville Event Co. and Congratulations Jenny + Jake!!!

"You are my Sunshine, my only Sunshine!"

A Southern Breakfast Wedding! A Family affair with personal touches, and tons of attention to detail. This "You are my Sunshine" themed wedding was extremely unique, fun and vibrant.  Knowing that the Mother of the bride has been responsible for decorating the Biltmore house for over 25 years, we knew this Biltmore wedding was going to exceed all expectations! 

The morning began with a gorgeous sunrise over the mountains and it was the perfect start to this special day! Emily and Cam's guests arrived at 9am, warmly greeted with coffee and donuts. A bell signaled everyone to sit and the ceremony began. Cam made a point during the ceremony to also make a promise to Ayla, Emily's daughter which was very touching and Emily surprised Cam by having the entire wedding put on sun glasses during the first kiss! Following the vows the entire party enjoyed a fabulous brunch together, followed by a group prayer and family dances. 

Emily & Cam's wedding was also featured on Borrowed and Blue here.

Summer + Troy | Engagement Photography Session On The Biltmore Estate

The Biltmore Estate was perfect. It was one of those rare moments when you walk onto the front lawn, take a deep breath in and realize that you have the entire place to yourself. It was magical. So myself, Paul from Four Seasons Films, Summer and Troy took a stroll, capturing their love in this magical place.

Summer and Troy asked Paul to help them create a one of a kind wedding invitation! A video to be mailed out as their save-the-date message to all of their wedding guests! Click here to see their message.

Katlin + Matt | Biltmore Estate, Asheville NC

Katlin and Matt booked me nearly 2 years before their wedding date and when the day finally came, I felt like I was documenting two dear friends getting hitched. After so many conversations, emails and an awesome engagement session here in Asheville Katlin some how failed to mention however that she was planning to wear the most gorgeous flower crown of all time! The Bloom Room are out of this world fantastic and of course a wedding at the Biltmore Estate never disappoints. Their intimate wedding in the gardens was bursting with special moments, sweet gestures and thoughtful gifts. They exchanged some of the most beautiful vows I have witnessed and truthfully there wasn't a dry eye in the house (including my own). I still to this day have no clue why I photographed the gang shaking yellow towels enthussiastically in the air but everyone seemed to really enjoy it :) Here are some of my favorite images of this wonderful wedding in May.

The First Look | Rose Garden, Biltmore Estate

Photographing a couple's wedding is a real honor for me. It's monumental, albeit a little stressful and well, a really big deal that my clients completely trust me to capture this massive moment in their lives. The morning that I wake up and don't feel a little nervous to rise and accomplish this task I think is the day I will stop shooting weddings. 

Laura and Brian's wedding day was no exception to this rule especially given that they are both two highly creative and accomplished artists themselves (no pressure). The biggest compliment someone can give me as a wedding photographer is to be told to be myself and encouraged to be creative. Laura and Brian did just that and we had a wonderful time in the Butterfly garden on the Biltmore Estate.

Here are just a couple of images from their first look amongst the roses.

Bridal Portrait | Biltmore Estate, Asheville NC

I'm so excited to post this Biltmore Bridal Session and even more excited to say as of yesterday Courtney is now officially my sister-in-law. Brooke Priddy of Ship to shore designed Courtney's one of a kind dress using pieces of her Mother and Grandmothers wedding dresses. We were thrilled that Candace from Mingle Events could bring some of her props to the shoot and really had a lot of fun playing around with the vintage travel theme. The McIntosh family pretty much love everything with a wheel on it and my brother-in-law is going to just die when he sees his bride on this vintage Bicycle. We timed the shoot with Courtney's run through with her hair stylist at Suraj Spa & Salon and squeezed in 30 minutes of shooting before our session was cut short due to an absolute down pour! Big thanks also to Bella Blooms for designing this special bouquet for Courtney.

Spring Engagement Session | Biltmore Estate, Asheville NC

Carolyn and Josh are so much fun to be around and we had such a great time talking about our families and their upcoming wedding plans! Spring was just starting to appear at Biltmore and we were grateful the rain held off for an hour while we took some quick portraits in the walled garden.

Erin + Brian | Rehearsal Dinner at Deerpark, Biltmore Estate

Erin & Brian met and fell in love while working in some of the restaurants at Biltmore and couldn't imagine tying the knot anywhere else! They planned their wedding weekend perfectly with the help of Tamara from Belle Soiree Weddings. Celebrations kicked off with their rehearsal on dry cow hill followed by dinner at Deerpark and s'mores by the fire. The Biltmore floral team decorated their tables with vintage crates and lace and the twinkle lights made for a cozy atmosphere. I can't wait to share more images with you all from this amazing Biltmore wedding! The ceremony behind the house and mountain backdrop was just incredible.

Zetty + Greg's Winter Wedding at Lioncrest, Biltmore Estate

Zetty & Greg planned such a lovely winter wedding at Lioncrest on Biltmore Estate. Greg enlisted the help of his college roommate and good friend Joel from Curly Willow Designs of SC. Joel took Zetty's idea of bringing the outside in and incorporated Christmas trees, drapery and decorated the tables with greens and white roses. Their guests traveled far and wide for this destination wedding and the Biltmore team as always exceeded every expectation. I was excited when the rain let up just long enough for us to venture up to The Biltmore House for some quick portraits, and so happy that Zetty and Greg chose me to photograph their beautiful wedding!

Brock + Kelly | The sweetest Proposal

I was so excited when Brock got in touch and asked me to photograph this epic moment of his life! I'm pretty sure I was more nervous than he was and when the moment finally arrived none of us even noticed the rain. This truly was one of the most romantic moments I've had the honor of capturing.

Ashley + James | Biltmore Estate Wedding, Asheville NC

Ashley had dreamed of getting married at the Biltmore Estate since she was a little girl, and on September 14th all of her dreams came true! Ashley and James chose to do a first look at the Inn, where we also met up with the rest of the bridal party and explored Biltmore's grounds taking photographs for a while. Their ceremony took place in the Ballroom later that afternoon, followed by a cocktail reception and dinner on the Veranda. The Biltmore's very own floral team did an amazing job with the decor and the staff at Lioncrest provided the cake and catering. Their guests danced to the fantastic Sweetwater Junction from Atlanta who really kept the party going!
