Catie and Nathan's wedding at the Omni Grove Park Inn was the loveliest intimate wedding we've seen, and we were thrilled to be a part of their special day! Early November is the perfect time for a wedding in Asheville, as the leaves are changing and the mountains provide the most stunning colorful backdrop!
Catie and Nathan chose plush lounge sets (complete with cozy blankets for guests) and beautiful florals with deep tones that set the scene for their intimate wedding. The whole wedding, designed by Firefly Event Company, had the most warm and elegant feel for this evening in the mountains!
Our team provided a string duo of cello and violin for this sweet couple's ceremony, cocktail hour, and dinner. Donna and Brianna played traditional selections such as "Arioso", "Ode to Joy", and "Canon in D" for the ceremony. We are always happy to customize music for our couples and this wedding was no exception. We planned out an arrangement of "Turn Turn Turn" with the officiant that would be played in shorter choruses throughout his message.
After the ceremony, guests enjoyed cocktail hour with selections from the Beatles, Disney classics, and Stevie Wonder. The couple specifically wanted the after-ceremony music to be "spirit lifting" and "toe-tapping", and our team made it happen! It is not unusual for our couples to describe the MOOD they want (vs. the songs they want) for their wedding, and then we select tunes that are perfect to fit that mood.
