Diana at Biltmore Estate Wedding: Laura & Sam

Diana at Biltmore Estate Wedding: Laura & Sam

I immediately connected with Laura Hendrickson since she lives in my hometown of Princeton, NJ, and grew to love her and her fiance, Sam Rabin, even more as time went on. They met while attending Stetson University, and in 2010 moved to Princeton, NJ when Sam began his first year studying for his PhD. The following year Sam proposed to Laura during a hot-air balloon ride and we were they lucky ones they called to plan their dream wedding!

In one of our first consultations, Laura’s mother said to me that with this wedding she, “wanted to create magic,” and that is exactly what we did! From the custom place cards that reflected Sam’s love of birds to the hand-strung roses displayed at the wedding ceremony, every detail came together to create one of the most magical weddings Biltmore Estate has ever seen. The colors they chose fit right in with the beautiful autumn mountain leaves – golds, reds and oranges filled every corner. And of course, Diana at Biltmore Estate is a stunning location for a wedding – it’s hard to beat those views of the Biltmore House, and nothing adds to a wedding quite like a fireworks display!
