We've photographed some huge, multi-day wedding celebrations over the years and yes, they were absolutely gorgeous. But some of the nicest, most meaningful weddings have been small, intimate gatherings. This wedding is a prime example. Esther and Jason, who are from the same area in Florida that Brian used to live, were married last October at the Biltmore Estate in a small, cozy ceremony with about 35 friends and family. Shay Brown, owner of Shay Brown Events and Palettes of Perfection in Asheville planned the day for Esther and as always, did a fabulous job! Stacey Brown, owner of The Bloom Room in Asheville, worked her magic with the flowers. . .check out the bride's bouquet and attendant's bouquet, just awesome!
The ceremony was at the Vista at the Inn on Biltmore Estate and the reception in the Biltmore Wine Cellar. It was just a gorgeous wedding, Esther + Jason were so much fun to work with and even though it rained a bit nothing was going to stop them from making their wedding a day to remember.
So, it doesn't have to be a mega affair to be beautiful! Thanks Esther + Jason for allowing us to share your wedding day! Here's a few images from their day, enjoy!
The Bloom Room - wow!

"Dear Brian and Gry,
Your post really brightened our day! We are the ones that are honored you were able to capture our memories. The passion for your work comes to life, every image its own masterpiece. We were fortunate to have Beth Poslusny @ Biltmore, Stacy Brown @ Bloom Room and Shay Brown of Shay Brown Events to bring our dreams to life. Thank you so much for your kind, sincere words. It truly was the best day of our lives and we get to relive that day, every time we look at the memories the two of you captured for us."
