It's not every weekend we get to do a wedding at the timeless Biltmore Estate, and the simple, gorgeous details Christina & Tom put into their day made it even more incredible. We love her elegant style that seemed so effortless, and Tom's casual-modern look that many men strive to achieve. I'm getting way ahead of myself already, though- let's start at the Biltmore Inn, where the day began.
Now prepare yourself: Tom & Christina's 'first look' might be one of the most darling we've ever seen! I love how Tom channels his overjoyed reaction into a girl's dream greeting.
In the bright October sun, Jeff & Tom scoured for a bit of shade. When we heard that they were all set and he couldn't see her, we started the short walk from the Inn to this tucked- away space with an incredible mountain view. The result was worth the walk!
Literally. Perfection. I'm swooning over here!
Originally, we got to travel around the Biltmore in their gorgeous and cozy trolley's with the kindest driver ever. As we drove to Christina's wedding bucket-list locations, we laughed and joked and dreamed about the ceremony to come.
After the first stop, we found out that there was another Sparks wedding happening that exact day, and they scheduled photos the exact time as Christina did! Although we lost the trolley to the Bride who it actually belonged to, it didn't deter this wedding party or take away from the fun time inside!
Typically, it's not our first choice to do photos in the bright mid-day lighting, but sometimes timeline & the schedule leave you no choice. Christina, Tom, and their glowing wedding party were troopers walking all across the estate for some fantastic shots with gorgeous backgrounds.
Like I said, Christina & Tom looked like magic!
You know what also looked like magic? The incredible details put together for the ceremony & reception. Christina, Tom, and her family put nearly all these details together themselves (you hear that?! All by themselves!) creating this incredible result below!
As sun started to set, the ceremony time drew near. And it was just so dreamy. In a cozy, vibrant setting, Christina & Tom became man and wife. I've used up all the rest of the photos we normally share on our blogs on this ceremony because not only was it gorgeous, but so emotional and sweet. Placing this couple in such a elegant setting produced some beautiful photos!
Even though I've seen these photos a hundred times, I'm still swooning over the absolutely loveliness that was Christina & Tom's wedding day.
