Lioncrest Wedding on Biltmore Estate

This wedding is all the things I love - beautiful kisses in front of Asheville's favorite castle, happy laughter all day long, stolen glances by two people in love, gorgeous purple & white details, and a vintage car transporting the Bride and Groom to happily ever after. I hope you love Ashley and JP's Lioncrest Wedding on Biltmore Estate just as much as I did!

An always and forever kind of love, whether in a Castle or a forest...

I'm loving the perfect floral details in lace, mirrored in the delicate white flowers and sweet greenery of Ashley's bouquet.

Why even go to a wedding if you don't plan to have fun? Ashley and JP's crew celebrated every minute of their time together!

A little mood lighting from Spintastic Sounds gives a hint of the party to come.

Gorgeous setup by the Lioncrest Wedding Team on Biltmore Estate, and Flower Gallery of Asheville. The petal aisle decor leading to the cascading arrangements on the ceremony arbor set the stage just right for this romantic wedding.

A sweetheart table making all the right statements -- Romance forever, party all night, perfect florals, candlelit magic, and the list goes on...

The first dances were such sweetness!

Affectionate words by the Maid of Honor and the Father of the Bride to send this sweet couple off into the next steps of their journey together. Loving those gold-edged champagne glasses, too!

Congratulations to Mary Bell, and a stellar team of professionals for this picture-perfect wedding.

Snow + Love = Perfection!

The snow was coming and I messaged Danielle..."Are you ready? It's what we've been waiting on!" We knew their engagement photos needed to be in the snow since they are having a December wedding. Very fitting! And just look! Yesterday we couldn't have asked for a more perfect day!

And of course we had to include their fur baby! I mean look at all this cuteness!!!

So to finish up with a laugh, I have to share an out take. Sometimes mother nature has another idea in mind! Danielle and Michael are real troopers! Let it snow! We are going to play!


TJ and Julia’s Fields of Blackberry Cove Wedding

You guys, I am so excited to share the details of TJ and Julia's Field at Blackberry Cove wedding! From s'mores and a hot dog cart to lawn games and a grand entrance, these two know how to throw a party.

Wendy with Blush and Mary with Mary Bell Events sure know how to make a woman feel beautiful. These two are so much fun to work with and you can see how happy and relaxed Julia was as she got ready!

TJ cried big crocodile tears when he saw Julia during their first look and again when she walked down the aisle at the ceremony. He loves her so! These two are so wonderful together and it truly melts my heart.

I love this moment as Julia's Dad waits to walk her down the aisle. And seeing TJ tear up again as Julia and her dad walked towards him. You can't beat emotional moments like these!

The Fields of Blackberry Cove provided a magical backdrop for the ceremony and reception. Gorgeous floral arrangements and romantic touches brought the evening to life!

I always work to make the family photos go as quickly as possible because I don't want your guests waiting for you any longer than they have to....  TJ and Julia's had their guests in mind during cocktail hour by having something fun to do... lawn games!

TJ and Julia made quite the entrance with their first dance! See the way they look at each other? It just gives you butterflies to see these two together.  And the way that she melts into him... Perfect!

As the sun set on this amazing evening, guests enjoyed warm s'mores. It just doesn't get any better than melted chocolate, marshmallows, and graham crackers around the fire on a cool night!

These two love birds made sure to steal a quiet moment for themselves during the reception! TJ and Julia, thank you for inviting me to be a part of your wedding!
