How Sweet It Is

A couple of months ago I posted a 'sneak peak' video of one of our fabulous June weddings. I promised a complete wedding post and here it is!

On June 5th Laura and Greg said 'I Do' at Deerpark, one of the Biltmore Estate's amazing venues. With its elaborate courtyard, summer foliage, unique lighting and original wood beams the venue served as a perfect space for the laid-back couple to tie the knot. Along side their family & friends, the ceremony was held in the courtyard followed by a cocktail hour in the Lodge Room and a reception in the open-air dining room.

Above, the couple rehearsed their choreographed first dance on the entrance steps of the Estate. I Do Dances was the rhythm behind this dance, and the hours they put in perfecting it really paid off- it was great!

As the Wedding Coordinator, Shay Brown Events felt so lucky to be working with some of the most talented vendors in the area. The day was captured by Blend Photography, and I don't think I need to say anything more- the photos certainly speak for themselves!
Two Ring Studios was the videographer and truly did an amazing job capturing this wedding. See their video clip in a previous post.
Scott Thompson worked his magic on the (already-beautiful!) bride as her make-up artist. Her hair was done at the oh-so-savvy Suraj Spa.
The Baggie Goose created one of my all-time favorite 'fan ceremony programs'. Perfect idea for a summer wedding.
The floral (pictured below) was created by F l o r a, one of Asheville, North Carolina's newest and fastest growing wedding & event florists. Flora's unique fashion and unprecedented style is being noticed by publications and designers around the country. The rich purple paired with the soft ivory created an elegant, romantic and fun atmosphere for the whole day.

The guests danced the night away to entertainment provided by The Business, one of Asheville's most talented & interactive wedding bands. If you can name it, Jim (the lead singer) can sing it!
The couple exited as the new 'Mr. & Mrs.' in a Rolls Royce provided by Elite Limousine.

Their guests saw them off with rose petals and good wishes. Congratulations, Laura & Greg. We wish you all the happiness in your future.
