There are so many things I love about this wedding! One of those things was definitely the vendors we got to work with! They were all so fantastic at their jobs and wonderful to work with!
First, you really can’t go wrong at the Biltmore Estate. The staff there is a pleasure and if that weren’t good enough, this place is huge and every bit of it is SO gorgeous! The ceremony took place at the Inn with the reception following at Lioncrest. Maura and her team with Honey Darling Events did an amazing job pulling the whole event together and keeping things running smoothly! The girls at Lola Salon made the ladies oh-so-beautiful and the flowers from The Purple Iris were the perfect unique accent to all of the decor. The Asheville String Trio did a wonderful job with the ceremony music and DJ Dillon with Blazing Sound Entertainment kept everyone dancing well into the night! A big thank you to Asheville Classic Cars for guiding us through the huge estate and for lending the gorgeous classic that you saw in the previous post! Of course the biggest thank you of all must go out to the uber talented Corey Cagle who graciously offered to come spend the evening with us manning the photo booth. Corey – THANK YOU! You were amazing and we so appreciate you giving up a precious weekend-night to help us!
Now on to some images! I love a lot of green in floral arrangements and I thought the addition of fern leaves in the bridesmaid bouquets was really unique and beautiful.
I love the personal touches to the unity candles – sand for her family in Florida, Coal for his family in East Tennessee and a blending of the two for their candle together. The wooden winery boxes were a nice rustic touch and the organic nature of the moss made everything feel like it had been brought in straight from a lush garden. In place of the traditional birdseed or flower petals, the couple did a lavender toss at the end of the ceremony which smelled wonderful as it came down!
The woodsy setting for the reception complimented the rustic details beautifully!
The combination of florals, lanterns, and mosses in wooden boxes made for perfect little gardens set into each table and every one was unique.
I also love love love all of the chalk signs set throughout the site. Yet another great rustic detail and the lollipop garden on the kids table was too cute!
I’ve never seen this done for the guestbook before but I thought it was cute and really fitting for the scene.
Isn’t this the most lush looking cake you’ve ever seen??
…and speaking of sweets, I think we all know by now that I’m a sucker for a good candy bar! =)
tree trunk pedestals, bramble and moss lines baskets, and delish local treets = perfection!
It was a beautiful event full of beautiful people!
Lissa and Justin and all of their fabulous vendors – great job! Here’s to YOU! =)
Thanks for looking everyone! =)
