This wedding was one for the books!! This was the first time I’ve shot a wedding at The Biltmore Estate and gosh, it was such a dream. It was also the first time I was able to meet Ole and Aaron and person. They got ready together in their suite at the Biltmore Inn. I was worried Aaron was going to see Ole’s dress but he mention that he’d helped her pick it out. I love wedding days and wedding experiences that are a little untraditional. They are just as beautiful and a little extra special. Ole also had gorgeous Kate Spade heals, a classic white bouquet, and romantic gold hair piece. Aaron wore a classic black and white tux. So perfect for the Biltmore! They looked so beautiful together. Their rings were so special as well, they were cut outs of each other.
While they were getting ready it did decide to shower us with some rain. We took some portraits in the Biltmore Inn hall which would later turn into their ceremony location. Once it stopped we walk around the actual estate. Can I just tell you, they looked like they owned the place. The tours were almost done and it began to clear out so we had the entire place to ourselves.
After their portraits, and their amazing wedding planning team got their ceremony moved inside, Ole’s sweet friend walked her down the aisle. Unfortunately, Ole’s parents couldn’t make it. They would have needed to travel from overseas and during Covid it was a little too difficult and too short notice. After their ceremony they were able to Facetime with her family. It was such a sweet emotional moment. After some sunset portraits they had a long dinner and some dancing. It was just a beautiful day, I hope I have so many more weddings just like this one!
