Alison and Ben's Private Estate Wedding Part 2

Alison and Ben chose to have their wedding on a family estate, and what a beautiful setting it was! The Bride selected a natural grove on property for the intimate ceremony. Entering the grove felt like an escape to somewhere otherworldly, yet this beautiful spot was nestled into a nook right by the house which made it the perfect choice for both setting and convenience. The ever fabulous Mary Bell Events brought together every tiny piece and detail of this day to make it perfect!

I heart Alison's old, borrowed and blue sapphire and diamond pin on her dress! Details details details!

It's moments like these that make me glad I have auto focus on my camera...  

L O V E those happy tears!

Flower Gallery of Asheville created these elaborate aisle arrangements. These natural wood chairs held more beautiful florals than a few of bridesmaid bouquets I've seen over the years!

This decorated arbor is all things brilliant, natural, soft and glam at the same time. Yet even these breath-taking flowers play second fiddle to the groom wiping away tears in the sweet emotion of the moment.

A table full of luxurious hydrangea and swirly tag holders? Oh yes, please.

Even a brightly colored floral cake topper can't steal the show from a masterpiece wedding cake by Karen Donatelli.

Matching Bride and Groom shoes might have been my favorite part of this wedding, except I cannot EVEN pick my favorite thing. Everything was just perfection.

As Ben is a chef, the food and wine were extremely important elements of the wedding day. Just look at this selection of wine!!!! Oh my! There is something for everyone.
