The Inspiration Behind Their Boho Asheville B&B Wedding

First, we spent an afternoon creating a vision board with magazine clippings. We didn’t put much thought into it and instead, let our emotions guide us. Upon viewing our vision board, it became apparent that we both desired an outdoor wedding with exquisite details and flowers—a nearly ethereal, feminine ambiance. We also share a deep love for the mountains of NC, where our engagement took place, leading us to choose Asheville as our wedding location. We had already decided on an intimate wedding. By exclusively inviting immediate family, it allowed us to focus more on the finer elements. When we discovered the Biltmore Village Inn, everything fell into place. Lydia spent a year immersed in Pinterest, exploring “bohemian” and small wedding ideas. We began collecting various items, such as a gauze table runner, eclectic gold candlesticks, and amethyst crystal nameplates for our guests.

How They Came Across The Biltmore Village Inn

We wanted a mountain view and a place where everyone could stay. We googled bed and breakfasts in Asheville and found the perfect place, Biltmore Village Inn. After one visit to the beautiful grounds and a chat with Monica, the innkeeper, we knew we had found our venue.

An Unforgettably Perfect Rainy Ceremony Complete With A Rainbow

The day (actually, the entire weekend) was flawlessly perfect and remarkably stress-free. However, the most unforgettable aspect was undoubtedly the ceremony. The breathtaking view of the mountains provided a spectacular backdrop, and we were blessed with an incredible weather moment. Despite a forecast of a 100 percent chance of rain, the sun miraculously emerged just before our ceremony commenced. The most remarkable part occurred during the exchange of our vows, as a gentle sprinkle of rain graced us, followed by a magnificent rainbow stretching across the mountains.

Embracing The Unconventional With A Memorable Micro Wedding Weekend

You don’t have to follow the crowd just because “everyone is doing it” or to avoid hurting others’ feelings. In our case, we decided to take an unconventional route and opted for a micro wedding. Our main objective was to create an experience where our family would feel like they were on a delightful vacation, making it the most extraordinary weekend of our lives.

Setting the Perfect Tone: Creating A Romantic Atmosphere Through Music

Our deep passion for music was beautifully brought to life by our exceptional vendor, T Warner Artists, who graced our ceremony and cocktail hour with enchanting acoustic melodies. They went above and beyond, attentively learning and performing songs that held special significance to us. Seamlessly transitioning into the lively and upbeat DJ music for the reception, they ensured that the celebratory atmosphere remained vibrant throughout. As the night drew to a close, Ben, the guitarist, serenaded us with a heartfelt song by the fire. Making it an unforgettable late-night moment. We are immensely grateful to all our incredible vendors, with a special shoutout to the remarkable team at the Biltmore Village Inn and our talented photographer Jacqueline Franquez, the proud owner of Wayward Wanderess.

Pride In Design, Joyful Celebration, And Authenticity At Their Asheville B&B Wedding

We take great pride in witnessing the seamless integration of our design and the exquisite floral arrangements, which exceeded our expectations.  From our lively 2-year-old niece to our vivacious 80-something grandmother—we’re so happy ti know that they enjoyed themselves. Seeing our vision materialize in such a captivating manner fills us with pride beyond measure. We remained true to ourselves throughout the planning process, ensuring that the ambiance and vibe reflected our true desires. One of our most treasured photos captured a candid moment of my grandmother proudly waving a Pride flag, forever immortalizing a meaningful and cherished memory.
