Manny and Brian's Wedding at The Century Room

You guys! I love this wedding! I know I'm always saying that, but it is always true! Manny and Brian celebrated a most perfect wedding day. Their devotion to each other and happiness together shows through so clearly in each one of these photos.

The floral details from Shady Grove are a natural complement for an Asheville wedding. I'm especially a fan of the dried wheat grass.

The ceremony included an eloquent celebration of the "flavors" of life. Each attendant read an excerpt describing an inevitable stage of life or "flavor" (i.e. sweetness or bitterness), and encouragement of how the grooms can overcome and enjoy life to the fullest together. The grooms tasted something for each flavor as a portion of the ceremony and to signify their commitment to each other.

Shaunta and Eric's Champagne Cellar Wedding on Biltmore Estate

When a gorgeous bride marries a handsome groom, throw in an adorable child, a champagne cellar, exquisite floral arrangements and candlelight for days, an epic wedding unfolds. I have so many favorite photos from this wedding. Each photo reminds me of the beautiful and so very authentic emotional connection this family shared.

These dimples - What can I even say to describe how PERFECT this child is? He stole my heart (along with the heart of everyone else at the wedding)!

This shot is one of my absolutely favorites of the favorites. Sometimes a reflective window presents an opportunity that just can not be passed by.

Shaunta and Eric weren't the only ones saying vows at this wedding. Shaunta's young son, Joey, was an equally important part of their ceremony as they vowed to be a family. Joey just cried so hard which of course made everyone else cry, too. These are the moments that make all the wedding glamor and glitz fade away, so that only the important elements remain - love and the hope for a lifetime of happiness.

Floral candelabras, stone walls, stunning tapestry, all lit by the soft glow of candles... Shaunta and Eric offered their guests nothing less than the very best.

Delicious food from Biltmore Catering included these mini gourmet pizzas. Choosing pizza for an appetizer option brings a touch of fun and whimsy to your wedding reception.
