Elopements are so much fun! The couple is relaxed and only focused on each other. This one at the Biltmore in Asheville was no exception.
The couple used antiques from their grandparents as their backdrop... a hatbox, lanterns, a dresser, jewelry, etc. They videoed the wedding too so their family could experience it later.
I played a violin solo of "A Thousand Years" for the bride's entrance. Fred Werhan conducted the ceremony, and I played "Come Fly With Me" as the new couple enjoyed their first few moments as husband & wife.
Later that day, I met Madilyn in Blowing Rock at Camp Sky Ranch for a rustic wedding in the chapel. We played violin arrangements of Beatles songs for the prelude. Then "Moon River" and "Clocks" were used later in the ceremony. Such a cute place for a wedding!
Melissa Riley from Day of Your Dreams coordinated the wedding and did an amazing job!
