Yvette + Lou sneak peek!

Just last week we had the honor of being a part of Yvette Contorno + Lou Klobuchar's wedding weekend at the Biltmore Estate. Yvette + Lou are from the Chicago area and, joined by about 40 close friends and family from around the country, were married at the Biltmore House front lawn. Lou is the retired President of E Trade Financial Services and Yvette along with her mother, Mira, oversee Mira Couture in Chicago. Yvette designed and made her wedding dress and yes, it was absolutely gorgeous. . .brides in Chicago take note!!

Once again, the amazing Tara Jordan, owner of Weddings with Tara in Asheville, was the event planner for their weekend. Purple Iris, also form Asheville, did a fabulous job with all of the floral arrangements. The center pieces at the reception dinner in the Italian Garden were just beautiful. . .nice job ladies!! Tim Lolley did a wonderful job, as always!, as the officiant and the professional staff at the Biltmore Estate once again provided a world class experience for all!

Thank you Yvette + Lou for sharing your day with us! You and your family and guests were so gracious and fun. . .we had a great time with you!!

Dinner Friday night at the Conservatory on the Biltmore Estate.

Kathleen + Brian - The Cliffs Chapel + Wyche Pavilion!

Last month we had the pleasure of photographing the beautiful wedding of Kathleen Kuhnert + Brian Vieira, from Atlanta, at the Cliffs Chapel followed by a great reception at the Wyche Pavilion in Greenville, SC. Tara Jordan, owner of Weddings with Tara in Asheville, did her usual amazing job coordinating the day's events. Tara is one of the best event planners in the area, her events always go so smoothly! She is just a wonderful person, always with a beautiful smile for everyone! Stacey Brown, owner of the Bloom Room in Asheville, once again did a fabulous job with the florals. Brides take note!!

After the ceremony we all drove down to downtown Greenville, SC for the reception at the very cool Wyche Pavilion! An old mill, the Pavilion is an open air, brick structure right on the river. Really a nice break from opulent ballrooms and country clubs!

Here's a few images from their day!
