As wedding planners in Asheville, NC, we have the opportunity to become familiar with so many venues in this area. Leya and Kris chose Montreat College for their ceremony, and the Grand Bohemian for their reception, and we think those choices made for a day that was perfect for them!
Montreat is such a beautiful place. Located in beautiful Black Mountain, N.C., Montreat is hidden away from the rest of the world. The community there is reminiscent of Mayberry. Small town charm for days!
and these classic details…
Sarah is always ready with a reassuring smile…her spirit is so joyful, and it shows.
these moments. so real and so special.
favorite moment #1 Lea’s dad seeing her for the first time – so many tears! (not us…them! we never cry at weddings 😉 )
Let the ceremony begin!
such well-behaved kiddos 😉
The Chapel of the Prodigal features a beautiful fresco. True fresco is a rare thing because it requires powdered pigment to be dissolved in water, and then continually applied to the surface to absorb into the wet plaster. The artist, Ben Long, is one of the only true fresco artists in the US, and his work is stunning.
After the ceremony, it was off to Biltmore Village for a quick portrait walk before getting the party started.
aren’t they stunning?
The ballroom at the Bohemian is so lovely. We always love designing in that space!
These two have style for days. Dapper. Glamorous. Elegant.
When the bustle doesn’t bustle…you improvise. That’s what we are here for 😉
Favorite moment #3 – Kris dancing with his aunt. She is a cancer survivor, and she lost her son to cancer. This dance was full of life, and truly beautiful to watch.
Favorite moment #4. This dance party. Killer dance moves with this group – like oh my god those guys can dance, dance moves!
epic ending to an epic day.
We loved having the opportunity to be the wedding planners for Leya and Kris’ Asheville wedding celebration. As always, we couldn’t have done it without an awesome team of vendors working behind the scenes greasing the wheels and making things happen!
