Melissa and Chad were married at the Inn on Biltmore Estate. Melissa knew that she wanted some great images all over the estate since it is such a beautiful location, so she planned an early ceremony and reception, and then afterward the immediate family and bridal party went around the estate for some fun pictures. It was perfectly planned. When we finished it was just as the sun was setting and the moon was shining in the sky. We stopped for one last image by the lagoon with the house in the background, the moon shimmering on the lagoon, and Chad and Melissa Holding each other. It was amazing! This day couldn't have been any better. Jennifer from Verge Events did a fantastic job coordinating the day. I loved Melissa's use of peacock feathers! It was so beautiful! Stacy from the Bloom Room did a wonderful job as always with the flowers. Congratulations to Chad and Melissa. I wish you all the love in the world!
Merritt and Brooks were married at the gazebo across from The 1927 Lake Lure Inn and Spa and then returning to the Inn for the reception. It was a perfect day that even mother nature even participated in with singing birds during the ceremony! (Ok maybe it was not singing, but quacking instead, but I though it sounded better for the story as singing.)
Instead of having the ceremony under the gazebo, Merritt couldn't resist the beautiful view the other way and turned the guests to face the mountains.
I love this shot of Merritt and her dad heading to the ceremony
Check out the beautiful ladies!
And here are the handsome gentlemen!
There are a few people that I have to mention because they were wonderful to work with. Mandy and Linda from An English Flower Cottage took care of all the flowers which were beautiful. The cake was made by Mara Nichols and was delicious! (Yes, I got a taste and it was oh so good!) The Swing Street Band kept the dance floor moving all night! Congratulations to Merritt and Brooks!
Meet Kris and Lou: I just cannot express to you how much fun I had with them for their engagement session! Oh my gosh! They played at teh swings, cuddled in the hammock, rolled in the grass, and even put their feet in the water. That was daring to say the least because the water was freezing! But they made it look GOOD! I am very excited for their upcoming wedding. Maura from Honey Darling Events is coordinating the weekend and I know we are going to have a blast! Saturday is starting with a few rounds of golf, rehearsal, an awesome dinner, followed by a most beautiful wedding on Sunday.
