Happy Monday y’all!! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend and enjoyed that extra hour of shut-eye yesterday! Although I still woke up at 7:30 [I am allergic to sleeping in, I think] I really enjoyed having an extra hour to do everything I needed to!
In other news, I’m so excited to start my Venue Spotlight feature today! Picking a venue is one of the most important decisions us brides have to make. Choosing a venue helps to lock down a date, which will define what flowers are used and food is served, based on whats in season. The venue also shapes the entire wedding, from the overall theme down to the individual details on each place setting. To me, the venue also symbolizes who you are as a person and as a couple. For my fiancé and I, our venue captures our personality and history to a T! The venue is the place you are celebrating the biggest day of your life, so it definitely should not be chosen on a whim!
As you’ll see from the headline and the stunning photo above, my first venue in this series is one of the most amazing ones out there. The Biltmore Estate, which is the largest privately owned home in the United States, is one of the most popular and revered wedding venues in the business. Built by George Washington Vanderbilt between 1885 and 1895, this home celebrates American royalty, wealth and classic charm and has 250 rooms which are still in the process of being historically renovated and restored to their natural beauty. The venue is perfect for brides who are striving for a “royal, formal affair.” This American castle is also settled in the gorgeous town of Asheville, NC, which is nestled along the Blue Ridge Mountains. If you are looking for a historic building with stunning views, this is your place.
