Ashely and Clay’s Biltmore Wedding (Asheville Wedding Photography)

You don’t hear of many people escaping from Florida to the mountains during the winter but Ashely and Clay and 308 of their friends and family travelled from Jacksonville and Pensacola to the beautiful Biltmore Estate to put on a wedding in excellent style!

The wedding party and all the guests had a chance to enjoy the estate’s amenities during the weekend and the weather proved to be lenient for this time of year. Michael and I prayed the morning of the wedding for the forecast of rain to hold off till after the ceremony and our prayers were answered!

The official ceremony took place on Biltmore’s front lawn. We then were asked to photograph all 308 guest in front of the house. This was our biggest group photo to date! After the photo the doors of the house were opened and all of the guest were treated to a private tour.

The ceremony was very impressive but, if I may share my opinion, not quiet as impressive as the reception. The real party started over at the south terrace under a tent that appeared more like a 5 star hotel’s ballroom. Shay Brown Events really knows how to impress! Plenty of delectable treats were served along with an all night performance by a 17 member band. One of the best moments of the evening was when Ashely’s parents surprised Ashely and Clay with an incredible firework’s show. You probably heard them if you were in Asheville on that evening!

Ashely and Clay were a delight to be with on their special day. They are so sweet, easy going, and tons of fun to be around. We were super excited to do a rainy “Rock the Frock” in March when they came back to the Mountains and to Biltmore.

I love that all the bridesmaids carried clutches instead of flowers. All of the gold clutches were different and hand picked by Ashely for each one of her girls.

Coolest boutonniere ever.

It is only fitting that Ashely should come in on a carriage. I loved the smiles she had on her face as she saw her groom for the first time.

Ashely’s parents surprised them with fireworks! Ashely and Clay had no idea and were super shocked. Everyone was cheering so loud during the display. Truly a beautiful touch to a great day.
