We are so excited to have Chelsea & Michael’s wedding featured on Mountainside Bride! Their day was filled with sunshine, amazing flowers and so much love. As Asheville was a destination wedding for these two Floridian love birds, we helped bring their day together with the help of many talented vendors. Their rustic chic, dreamy peach and blush color palette was lovely against the Claxton Farm mountains and we are thankful we get to share the images from Blue Bend Photography and video from Iron Kite Films with you.

Thank you, Mountainside Bride!!

The planning process for Stephanie and Anthony’s wedding was a family affair! I loved getting to know them and both of their parents throughout the planning process. Stephanie and her mom, Patty, have impeccable taste and the wedding design reflected that. Shades of blush, ivory, white and champagne filled the ceremony on the Front Lawn at Biltmore Estate, as well as the beautifully lined reception tent in the Italian Gardens. The exquisite luxury linens from Party Tables really set the tone for every tablescape. Stacey at the Bloom Room’s flowers complimented the location, tent and linens perfectly. I also loved the escort cards tied to glasses of champagne for every guest for their seating assignments. We Got the Beat Band, an Asheville Event Co favorite, kept all of the guests dancing all night long.

Congratulations to Stephanie and Anthony!

Catherine and James’ wedding was a wonderful, love-filled weekend teeming with activities for their guests, beautiful colors and southern charm. Their vision and style for their wedding was mountain elegance – sophisticated with a nod to nature.

They chose to get married at The Farm at Old Edwards Inn, a beautiful venue nestled in the mountains, in Highlands, North Carolina, a romantic and outdoorsy mountain town, popular for many in Atlanta, Georgia. Their colors were coral, bright pink, and tangerine orange with lilac accents. The florist, Blossoms at Biltmore Park, created a floral cross that acted as the ceremony backdrop and the vibrant colors and patterns weaved throughout the day were captured by Jarrad Lister Photography. Their signature drinks were Moscow Mules and they had their favorite Atlanta party band, Yacht Rock Review, keeping everyone on the floor dancing the night away.

Eleanor and Steve have been together for a while… 10 years! They met in college and share a love of music, travel, cooking and the outdoors. When Steve (finally!) proposed on their 10th anniversary, it was time to plan a party to celebrate!

Eleanor + Steve currently live in Boston, but as lovers of the mountains and with family in Asheville, they decided to host their wedding on family property in North Carolina. They wanted their guests to have fun and to celebrate their marriage in a relaxed setting. The ceremony took place on the lawn with the autumn-colored mountains as the backdrop.  A light mist welcomed guests, but didn’t dampen anyones spirits. Officiated by the brides uncle, the ceremony incorporated personal touches. The joy between the couple and their guests was bountiful! We incorporated farm tables and exposed wood combined with rustic, simple decor for the reception. With a palate of blues, green, cream and touches of gold, local seasonal flowers with colorful jars brightened the tables. Signature cocktails, local beer, cornhole, bocce and horseshoes entertained the guests during the cocktail hour and after a wonderful BBQ dinner, the guests packed the dance floor and danced to the amazing Dickens band. Thank you to Sunday Grant Photography for sharing these gorgeous images with us!

Lindsey and Mike were a joy to work with! Though they planned their wedding from a distance, we grew to know them well and understand their design vision. With an assortment of lush arrangements, the blush florals were stunning against the epic backdrop of Lonesome Valley’s box canyon. Atheneum Creative created a custom arrow logo for the couple that we incorporated throughout the decor elements from the invitations and programs to the ceremony cocktail cups and favor and menu cards. Lindsey and Mike wanted a daily reminder of their gorgeous destination and the friends and family who joined them in their celebration, so we enlisted an artist to paint the view during the reception, while the guests signed a canvas. The painting and frame now hangs together in their new home.

It was a wonderful experience getting to work with Lindsey and Mike to bring their wedding vision to life.

Enjoy the gorgeous photos from Sunday Grant Photography!

Catherine & James wedding rehearsal dinner was filled with lovely Southern details at Highland Falls Country Club. Drawing from Garden and Gun for inspiration, Blossoms at Biltmore Park considered every detail from the Spanish moss chandeliers outside on the porch to the cotton wreaths adorning the front doors! The colorful patterns incorporated on the custom linens and pillows brightened the room and antler decor continued the Southern feel of the space. Highland Falls Country Club created a delicious menu with shrimp and grits, chicken and waffles and more. Jarrad Lister Photography captured these Southern details and we are excited to share them with you today. Enjoy!

Jill and Shane dreamed of an intimate ceremony with close family in the mountains of North Carolina. The Biltmore Village Inn, located just outside Historic Biltmore Village, was a beautiful choice full of gorgeous views and rich history. Built in 1892, this Queen Anne style bed and breakfast was owned by George Vanderbilt. It was an idyllic location that accommodated their family for the weekend.

After a lovely ceremony, guests enjoyed cocktails and appetizers on the porch of the historic inn while the ceremony pergola was transformed for a seated dinner under the stars.

We are so excited to have Lauren & Tyler’s wedding featured on Style Me Pretty today!

Lauren & Tyler envisioned a day of grace, love and chic beauty for their wedding. Nestled in the mountains of Asheville, NC on a clear August evening, Lauren & Tyler said “I do” overlooking the gracious lawns & spectacular house of the Biltmore Estate. Classical string music drifted through the air as guests sipped on champagne and enjoyed the beauty of their surroundings.  As guests were being served a gorgeous dinner of lobster, steak and locally grown vegetables, the newlyweds snuck off for pictures as the sun set behind the Biltmore House.

Thank you, Style Me Pretty!
