Danielle & Michael...Biltmore Bliss

Danielle & Michael got married in the what has to be one of the most enchanting locations 
I have ever seen, The Biltmore Estate.  

I will turn it over to Danielle and let her share her magical day with you... 

Michael and I met over a summer session at Virginia Tech at the milk station in D2! It happened to specifically be whole milk, and we met because no one else was ever in the line for that type! Lucky me.

Our wedding was June 28th, 2014 at Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC.

The day definitely had it's unexpected turns! Such as a flash pour before our first look, and the movement of our ceremony in the Gardens to inside of the Conservatory. 
Biltmore's staff handled this flawlessly all without our aid! It made for wonderful lighting in our pictures.

My advice to other brides is to feel free to splurge on what you really want when it comes to your day!
 If you're hesitant there's a good reason for it! 

Do what you and your future spouse dream of. 
If you can't, make it the best day together anyways! Getting married is the true beauty of it all. 
So rain or shine, big budget or no budget, this day is yours. Rock it!

My favorite part of our big day involved food! Since we had a smaller and intimate ceremony, 
we were able to relax with our families and chow down! 

The meal included the non-typical Biltmore setting of Salad, Buttermilk Fried Chicken, Corn on the Cob, Baked Beans, Cornbread, and Buttermilk biscuits with Honey & Blackberry preserves. Delicious! 

Our toast was with a freshly baked warm chocolate chip cookie, and ice cold whole milk of course in vintage bottles! 

The cake, oh my. 
The cake was a lemon cake layered with blackberry preserves and buttercream frosting. Needless to say, we're foodies. 

We're really enjoying being married, but not much seems to have changed! The stress from wedding planning is definitely gone, our Disneymoon helped us escape from that and let loose! We're a pretty goofy couple, so we enjoy spending time with one another no matter the scene. 

The Dress: I actually won this dress from Celebration Bridal out of Lynchburg, VA. 

I was given 2,000 towards any gown, and the Maggie Sottero Divina was screaming at me. I ordered it in blush without hesitating or even seeing it. After some customizations thanks to The Gilded Thimble, the dress was fabulously fit for me! 

The Shoes: Betsey Johnson

Flowers: The Flower Gallery of Asheville, NC

Decor: Me, Myself, and I! This vision was brought together by literally living in a dream world. Sashes from the chairs were from Wildflower Linens. Programs, Menu's, Name Cards, Invitations, Guest Book and Suitcase were from ShabbyScrap on Etsy.
