Lala & Jeff had their ceremony and reception at Lioncrest at Biltmore. A special ‘thank you’ goes to Mary Bell for coordinating this awesome event. Always a pleasure to work with such a talented creative team to make it all happen for our clients.
There were many moments that tugged at my heart throughout their wedding day, but I think the one that stood out most was the expression on their faces in last minute before they pulled away in their get-away car. It was a mix of heartfelt love and gratitude.

I had to breakdown Lala & Jeff’s wedding into two posts due to detail overload! This event, coordinated by the talented Mary Bell Events, really pulled out all of the stops! They had their first look at the Inn and then we met the wedding party on the front lawn of Biltmore Estate for some bridal party fun. Everyone was super stoked to celebrate with this awesome couple. Stay tuned to see how their ceremony and reception at Lioncrest was so very swoon-worthy.

In a month from now, we will be documenting this awesome couple’s wedding story on the front lawn of the Biltmore Estate. Asheville Event Co. has planned a truly fabulous event and we are honored to be a part of it.
What I loved about their engagement session was the fact that time stood still when the rain came. There’s something so beautiful about living in the moment.

This couple was all about living in the moment! Things I will always remember about their wedding…

1. The ‘first look’ with her father made me cry like a baby when I downloaded it that evening.
2. During the ceremony, David was cracking her up and it made for some many beautiful laughs.
3. His sister was a by his side, even in the wedding party.
4. The llamas enjoyed the party beyond the norm. They actually ran to greet the guests!
5.  There were so many authentic expressions of love throughout their day.  I’m beyond grateful for capturing their day.

Read all about my favorite things at Brittany and Dave’s fabulous wedding at the Conservatory at Biltmore Estate!

1. Brittany had two veils and opted for the one that was rose gold. It was not only beautiful, but it kept with what she truly wanted on her special day! She even had a special gem hair accessory commissioned by Stephanie and Lola Salon to boot!
2. Their wedding was held under a tent at the conservatory at Biltmore, but the sun came out when the couple kissed at the end of the ceremony. Perfect timing for us to get some sunset shots at the south terrace!
3. Their design included elements of chemistry and precious gems. The couple love both of these and it was a uniquely gorgeous combination.
4. They danced with flare!
5. He never stopped holding her hand and the moments between them flowed so naturally.
