From The BiltmoreLauren and Tyler were wed at Diana on Biltmore Estate, on August 8th, 2015. Their lovely ceremony took place outdoors, with their reception space nearby. Realities Photography perfectly captured the soft elegance of their beautiful day.

From Asheville Event Co.… Lauren & Tyler envisioned a day of grace, love and chic beauty for their wedding. Nestled in the mountains of Asheville, NC on a clear August evening, Lauren & Tyler said “I do” overlooking the gracious lawns & spectacular house of the Biltmore Estate.

Upon being announced Mr. & Mrs. the couple was surprised with a shower of petals…the look on their faces was pure joy!

Classical string music drifted through the air as guests sipped on champagne and enjoyed the beauty of their surroundings. As guests were being served a gorgeous dinner of lobster, steak and locally grown vegetables, the newlyweds snuck off for pictures as the sun set behind the Biltmore House.

After the cake was cut, Laurens father asked the guests to join him for a special treat for Lauren & Tyler. Incredible fireworks on the front lawn on the house…guests were thrilled with the beautiful show!

A special dance shared by the bride & her brother led off the night of dancing, singing and fun! The night ended with Tyler whisking his bride away in a gorgeous BMW. Cheers Lauren & Tyler….to many many years of love!!

From the Bride… We both didn’t really have a specific vision prior to planning our wedding. We had been together for 6 years before we got engaged so I had thought about it some and he did as well but the details really came together once we started planning. The only things that we knew we wanted prior to planning was our venue and that we wanted to make it classy and elegant.

We were going for a classic style and neutral color palate. We both love blue so we used that as an accent color but we predominantly used creams, whites and golds.

I am a very big crafter so I wanted to craft a lot of items for the wedding. Where to begin! For the rehearsal dinner I used wine corks as picture holders. Every place setting had a photo of either my husband or me with the guest seated there from sometime in the past (many photos were of us as children). I also had a “In memory of…” table at the rehearsal dinner. I used my great grandmother’s dressing table where she used to sit to put on her makeup every morning, and on top I had my husband’s grandmother’s jewelry box, my grandmother’s jewelry box, my other great grandmother’s book that was made for her by her friends in 1927, “Helpful Hints to a Bride”; and a rose cut from my mother’s garden to top it off. At the wedding I also had a “In memory of…” wall with pictures of our parents, grandparents, great grandparents and great-great grandparents in their 20’s. I also made all the table numbers for the rehearsal dinner and the wedding. For the rehearsal dinner, I dried flowers and adhered them to a burlap canvas, and for the wedding I cross-stitched the numbers onto antique doilies. My last big project was our guest book tablecloth. I cross stitched a picture of Biltmore House in the center of it and also embroidered our names on it.

My favorite moment was just seeing everything come together. For months we had worked so hard on so many individual pieces of the wedding, and then to see all of them come together that weekend was magical. We both loved seeing how everyone from all different parts of our life had come together to celebrate us.

We had a grand vision for our floral arrangements and wanted them to be lush and elegant. Stacy with the Bloom Room went above and beyond and the outcome looked fantastic! I went with my mother to Bridal’s By Lori in Atlanta to get my gown. I had looked at some gowns on Pinterest and I wanted something with intricate details. I immediately fell in love with my dress and all of the embellishments on it and knew it would also fit the venue perfectly!  For our favors we gave out champagne bottles with a custom label on it. We chose the artwork for our label, and modified it slightly to feature out two cats, Lacey and Lou Lou. For our cake we wanted something simple and elegant to tie into our overall vision and Biltmore delivered!

The one piece of advice I have to give is the same piece of advice someone gave me before I got married: Be selfish. It sounds harsh but what they meant is to really relish in the moment of your wedding and to not be afraid to have/do something in your wedding that no one else wants to do; do it because it is what you and your future husband want to do! It is a celebration of your love, so make it what the two of you want it to be!

From Life Stage FilmsWe just could not get enough of Ryan & Rebecca’s sweet and authentic love for one another. Their wedding took place in the beautiful Blue Ridge mountains at the majestic Biltmore Estate. Becca and Ryan, were the most laid back bride and groom we’ve seen. However, when it came to each other they wore their hearts on their sleeves. It was too easy to see exactly how much they loved each other. We adored all of the sincere toasts from their friends and family members at the rehearsal dinner. Becca and Ryan helped create a sparkling wine as a gift for all the guests to enjoy. The vintage wedding dress Becca wore was perfect for this fairy tale wedding. She even entered the ceremony in a horse-drawn carriage! The end of the night fireworks were simply amazing. We can’t think of a more perfect way to cap off one of the most incredible weddings we have ever captured!
