Jessica and Raj had this engagement session at Biltmore scheduled for over 6 months now. When they thought about what they wanted for their session, they said they hoped for snow to offer something a little different. Little did we know that the ONLY snow we’ve had all winter just so happened to be on this special weekend! I drove this couple in 4 wheel drive all over the estate for this awesome session. They were super sweet and I couldn’t be happier about photographing their wedding at Biltmore in the fall.

By looking at the images from this beautiful Biltmore wedding, you can’t tell that it was about 17 degrees! Marlee and Jim, as well as their wedding party, were troopers. Things I loved about this event…

1. The winter decor was truly gorgeous. From the crisp white, to the pinecone accents, I really love the ‘clean beauty’ of this event.
2. Marlee and I use the same perfume. She had sweet details that were fun to photograph.
3. I almost cried with the bride read the letter Jim wrote to her before the ceremony. Seeing the tears stream down her face brought their love to the forefront of this moment.

Stay tuned for Part Two and one AWESOME reception!
