Can we all just agree that Leigh’s wedding up-do is simply stunning? Stunning! Now that that’s settled, we can focus on the awesome details from Leigh + Jeff’s celebration at the Biltmore Estate. Joey + Jessica Seawell photographed the lovely couple, and Melissa Porter of the Asheville Event Company planned the traditional North Carolina wedding. The bride wore a dramatic Carolina Herrera gown (with a to-die-for train!), and her maids wore a mix of hydrangea-blue frocks from J. Crew. Of course, there’s an equally amazing reception waiting for you this afternoon!
How did the two of you meet? Tell us your story. A mutual friend suggested we meet. We were living in Washington, but were both originally from North Carolina.
Describe your wedding cake: We had a hazelnut cake with vanilla pastry cream, and a white cake with buttercream and raspberry preserve filling. We had topiary leaves made from sugar paste, decorated the cake with hydrangea accents. The pastry chef at the Biltmore was amazing!
