Our Biltmore Wedding

Our wedding was pure magic. And while I'm sure that most everyone says that about every wedding, we truly felt like we were in a real life version of a newly made Disney fairytale. We had an exquisite castle, a breathtaking view of the mountains, flowers as far as the eye can see, a deep, long love that's grown over 11 years, and we were surrounded by our closest family & friends.  

Anthony & I were both so insanely happy to finally have this day come that we'd been waiting so long for and to have it take place in one of our favorite places on earth, The Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC was pure perfection. It was freezing cold & it definitely rained (not 'til the reception!), but it was our perfect, a perfect that's easily read on our faces in each and every photo. Here's a glimpse at some of the moments captured from our day by our wonderful photographer Hope Taylor!

The Ceremony

 We had the tent just in case of rain, but luckily it didn't show up 'til the reception!

 It was seriously freezing, like high 30s low 40s and we're from Florida! So we bundled up blankets for our guests to use during the ceremony!

 We tied together five herbs each with a symbolic value that we'd love to remain in our relationship.
