Mr. & Mrs. Brevard // Biltmore Wedding in Asheville, NC – “The Hurricane Wedding”
This is one of those weddings that I will never forget.
I still remember the moment I received a phone call from Scott. Jordan and I had just arrived to Clover, SC after packing up our valuables and evacuating from impending the Hurricane Matthew. I picked up the phone and could hear the uncertainty in Scott’s voice as he told me they were relocating their wedding from Charleston to Asheville in a matter of days. I assured him and Aubrey that no matter where their wedding ended up being, I would be there to capture it. When their wedding day arrived a few days later, it sunk it that I was the only original wedding vendor that could make arrangements to be there, and that Scott and Aubrey literally planned an entirely new wedding in three days.
It was all hands on deck. Jordan even came along to do what he could to make their day as perfect as possible. I vividly remember a moment during their ceremony when the officiant said “we only have one last thing to do” and Aubrey looked terrified. Because of everything that had occurred leading up to the wedding, Aubrey had a moment of panic thinking she had forgotten something. It wasn’t until the officiant said “Scott, you may kiss your bride” that she bust out laughing because of all of the things to forget, she forgot that she got to kiss her new husband.
The staff at The Inn at Biltmore did an outstanding job to go above and beyond for this deserving couple. Because they were in financial limbo trying to get refunds from their original vendors, they cut costs wherever they could. They opted out of having a cake for that reason, but when the chef heard about their story, she made them a beautiful cake free of charge. The Inn also comped them with the honeymoon suite for the evening – which after all of the stress leading up to the wedding, they certainly deserved to relax and be pampered.
Scott and Aubrey, you are two of the most wonderful people I’ve crossed paths with. Thank you so much for trusting me to document your unforgettable day!
