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

diana opens at biltmore!

the biltmore estate has a beautiful new venue called diana, and man is it gorgeous!  it truly is breathtaking, and a fabulous place for any event.    the unveiling of diana was on tuesday night, and we were fortunate enough to be invited and join in the festivities.  this picture really does not do it justice...it was taken from my phone - so my apologies!  cannot wait to have an event here!

feature: four seasons films highlight video

we had the pleasure of working with paul and holly from four seasons films last fall for a beautiful wedding on the front lawn at the biltmore estate.  they are true masters in the art of cinematography, and give you an incredible film of your wedding day captured.  take a moment and check it out, as they are now featured on the verge website!

few days in miami

we had a few days of work/play in miami, and thought i would share a few pics.  it was my first time in this fun town ~ and cant wait to visit it again already.  it was wonderful to lay by the pool some and read a good book.  [my sister's keeper = kleenex!] we got to spend some great time with amber holritz, a phenomenal photographer, and had some great dinners exploring south beach.  i almost even worked up enough courage to get a tattoo at miami ink ~ but couldn't decide what to get...any suggestions?
