teaser from cutler and cristin...

there will be many more pictures to come from this great wedding this past weekend at biltmore. we were lucky enough to be the first ceremony to take place at their new venue diana with the reception at deerpark.  the weather was absolutely incredible!  perfect weekend for a wedding.

needless to say, both cristin and cutler as well as myself were a little emotional that day.  we have been working with them for over a year, and they were really just a true joy.  right after the ceremony we definitely were emotional ~ and the incredible jill schwarzkopf  captured these moments... and it just gives me chills!  here is a teaser with much more to come....

such sweet thank yous!

nothing warms my heart more than receiving a thank you note in the mail after the wedding ~ we couldn't help but share some of the nice things some of our recent couples had to say!

nicole, dan and i cannot even express how much we've appreciated your help this past year!  you have been an amazing wedding planner - and going beyond planning to offering yourself ad a friend, confidant, and advisor.  we truly hope to come back to asheville after the wedding and have a nice long visit ;) ...we wish you the best of luck - thanks for everything!  all our love and appreciation, rachel and dan

Jennifer,  Stephen and I cannot get over what a tremendous job you and your team did in making our wedding so special.  We couldn't have done it without you!  Thanks so much.  You are the best!  Wendy 

Thank you so much for your assistance in helping us find the right place to have our party.  The barn was great, the food was fabulous, and everyone enjoyed the band!  It was a great time for all.  You did a wonderful job planning the entire wedding and it was certainly a lot to plan and execute.  The wedding was beautiful and the entire weekend a great success.  Thanks again, Carol and Bill, parents of the groom
