Biltmore Wedding Photographer – A Diana Wedding with Whitney and Sam!

Whitney and Sam were married at Diana, one of our favorite spots on the Biltmore Estate! The fall color was peak and the sun was out to keep us warm!

This was our first event with the fabulous planner, Kiersa Holy. We were so excited to FINALLY get to hang out with her and see her creativity come alive. We have known her for some time and met because we are both a part of StudioWed.

Whitney said she wanted her theme to be “Downton Abbey meets Gatsby.” I would say they nailed it.

One of my personal favorite details from the big day was this aisle!! Shout out to Blossoms of Biltmore Park for their fantastic floral!

Whitney’s dad has passed away. Whitney wanted to include him in on her wedding day so she had her bouquet wrapped in his neck tie. Her mom also surprised her by pinning a hand written note in her dress from her dad. I may have teared up when I saw that one. I love how they included him in their day.

Sam’s gift to Whitney brought on some beautiful emotion as well.

Kristen from Blush Asheville rocked the makeup. She and I both love it when a bride sits down and says “Put on as much makeup as you can!” She wanted a Gatsby/1920’s look and Kristen did a fabulous job!

They had their guests sign post cards of Biltmore with well wishes. What a unique detail!

We also really loved all their Gatsby themed signs by Baggie Goose. They even had one in the lady’s “powder room!”

The day after their wedding we did a “Rock the Frock” around the property. This was a chance for Whitney and Sam to get dressed back up in their wedding attire and take advantage of more photography. The Biltmore property is so massive that it is almost impossible capture all the cool locations in one day.
