A Classic Fairytale Wedding at Biltmore Estate in North Carolina

Today's wedding, photographed by Two Ring Studios, is absolutely breathtaking - not only was it held at the beautiful Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC - but there's the color purple {one of my favorites} and it's a princess fairytale complete with a horse-drawn carriage ride {just like Cinderella}. And, since the carriage is in their wedding, I have to share their proposal story as written by the bride, Lori. "We were on a carriage ride at Biltmore Estate and the driver left us alone to admire the house from afar. It was a really romantic time when I thought he might pop the question. But the moment passed and he didn't ask. The driver returned and took some photos of us with the house in the background. Next thing I know, Clinton is on bended knee and proposing. He wanted to wait for the driver to come back, so he could capture the moment forever!" And, wait until you see the ending of this wedding - there were cookies and milk for the guests and the most spectacular nighttime shots of the bride and groom in the wet + rainy streets with the venue as the backdrop.
