    Biltmore Estate Wedding - WOW

    WOW! The Biltmore Weddings, Floral, and Pastry teams were fabulous to work with!

    VENUE:
    My husband and I got engaged in March 2020 and instantly knew we wanted to have an international wedding in the countryside of England. As COVID-19 progressed, we realized that our dream wedding wasn't going to happen as we didn't want to risk our guests health and safety. After the hard decision of not having an international wedding, we quickly set out to find a venue in the United States that evoked the same feeling we had wanted in our English garden estate wedding. We researched several venues but instantly new Biltmore Estate was THE venue as soon as we met our Biltmore Coordinator, Emily Rarhle, and she took us on a tour of all the venue possibilities.

    BILTMORE WEDDING TEAM:
    We had a small, 23 person ceremony and reception - originally planned for the Champagne Cellar but with COVID restrictions we had to move our wedding to The Inn on Biltmore Estate. The ceremony was held on the Belvedere Terrace, cocktail and wine tasting in the Gallery, and our reception in the Vanderbilt Ballroom.

    Our wedding at the Biltmore Estate was beyond incredible! Our Biltmore wedding coordinator, Emily Rarhle, was a dream to work with. She answered all of our questions with detail and was instrumental in helping us plan our dream wedding through the planning process and execution during the wedding weekend. Even throughout the pandemic, Emily graciously worked with us to figure out new alternatives to the COVID restrictions set forth by the governor and ensured all of our planning would be absolutely magical.

    CATERING & PASTRY TEAM:
    Not only was the Biltmore Wedding team amazing, but our food was absolutely out-of-this-world! From our passed canapés to our reception dinner to our wedding cake created by the pastry team, everything was to the level of Biltmore standards and beyond delicious. Our guests raved about the food and our cake for weeks after the wedding and my husband and I constantly talk about how wonderful everything tasted.

    FLORAL TEAM:
    Let's talk florals! After booking our venue and interviewing with several different floral companies around Asheville, I instantly knew that I wanted to move forward with Lizzie Borchers and the Biltmore Floral team. Flowers, along with Photography, were my top must haves that would make or break the overall experience while my husband wanted to focus on food and venue. I wanted to have a true partnership with all of my vendors and Lizzie Borchers with the Biltmore Floral team instantly clicked! As soon as I explained what I wanted from a floral aesthetic I trusted her judgement completely. The overall theme of the wedding was to evoke an etherial romantic English garden. Lizzie suggested florals that would fit within a soft and romantic color scheme and that were true florals grown on the estate to capture the natural beauty of what Biltmore offered. When I say, "I trusted my vendors completely," I truly did. It's sometimes hard to describe the vision you have in your head to someone for what you expect, but when I walked into the Vanderbilt Ballroom and Belvedere Terrace to see my vision come to life, I was in utter shock because Lizzie and the Biltmore Floral team had gone above and beyond my expectations and truly transformed the space into something even more magical than what I could've imagined. They nailed all of the details perfectly!
