This elegant wedding in the woods was dreamt up this spring by the talented team of Cortney Jackson, Almond Leaf Studios and Flora Events. The details came together beautifully from the watercolored wedding invitations to the romantic table setting. We have waited all wedding season to share these images with you and are so honored to have them featured on Magnolia Rouge.

Thank you, Magnolia Rouge!

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!

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!

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!

We are so happy that Juliana & Matt’s North Carolina Arboretum and Century Room wedding was featured on Glamour & Grace.

On a warm spring day, Juliana & Matthew said I do in the gardens of the North Carolina Arboretum. The Century Room, located in Packs Tavern, a historic building in downtown Asheville, made for the perfect setting for a true celebration of this beautiful couple!

In tones of grey & blush, the room was set with flowering branches towering over mercury glass candlescapes on the tables. Adoring friends & family celebrated with the sweet couple and then sent them off with a shower of sparkle! Cheers to Juliana & Matt – we wish you all the best!

Thank you, Glamour & Grace!

Ellen & Liam wanted their wedding to be romantic with a touch of old Hollywood glam. Using deep purples and an abundance of sparkle and glitz, Diana at Biltmore Estate was transformed into a vintage, dazzling celebration! Ellen’s wedding dress matched the vintage theme gorgeously with feather and sparkle details.

We enlisted the help of Get Lit Special Event Lighting to create a custom chandelier wedding canopy that wouldn’t hide the majestic view of the Biltmore Estate and Blue Ridge Mountains. One of our favorite details was the use of Liam’s family crest in the printed materials and ice sculpture.

Kathryn & Justin’s wedding was full of bold navy and orange color and amazing floral detail from a floral cross at the ceremony to winding magnolia leaves at the entryway. It was a beautiful celebration and we loved working with Kathryn and her family to plan the big day. Thank you to Kathryn for sharing her wedding story with us!

From the Bride, Kathryn:

Justin and I met in September of 2011 while he was stationed at Hunter Army Airfield and I was still in school at the Savannah College of Art and Design. We hit it off immediately and began dating that same month. After Justin returned from a nine-month deployment, he returned home and proposed to me on our two year anniversary – of course, I said yes!

Growing up, I attended Camp Glen Arden every summer – and with Justin’s love of the mountains and the great outdoors, the Biltmore Estate was a perfect venue choice for the two of us. We met our wedding planner, Becca Knuth, through a mutual friend and we couldn’t begin to thank her enough for all that she has done. From the absolutely incredible vendors that she recommended to the more simple things like where to eat or what to do when we were in town, Becca never ran out of ideas!

We really wanted to have an intimate wedding in the sense that we wanted each other to know everyone there. We didn’t want to feel overwhelmed on such an already overwhelming day. We wanted to soak it all in with our closest family and friends – and we did just that! We honestly had no idea what we wanted when we began planning, but with the guidance of our amazing planner, everything came together. Becca was so on top of it – and fun to work with!

Our wedding was both beautiful and elegant. We had pillows made for the wooden benches in the courtyard monogrammed with each bridesmaids initials, along with my new married monogram. Justin and I danced to Moon River which had always been a favorite of mine, but being that we first met in Savannah made it that much more special. From the music, to the vendors, to the food – I just can’t begin to thank everyone enough for putting on such a production. Fall was definitely in the air that weekend and we could not have asked for a more beautiful day to start our journey as newlyweds!
