I’ve been photographing weddings for over ten years now and this was my very first opportunity to photograph a Biltmore Estate wedding! Kyle and Anna had their ceremony and reception at Deerpark, but after their first look we took the trolly over to the main house and shot some of their portraits and bridal party arrangements on the lawn overlooking the beautiful main house.
For an October wedding, we still had plenty of heat in the air and green in the foliage.
The Deerpark restaurant and venue is just a short ten-minute trolley ride from the main Biltmore house and offers a charming, rectangle hall layout with a beautiful courtyard in the center for cocktail hour or the entire reception if the weather is nice.

Off the main entrance to Deerpark is one of the ceremony spaces. It’s warm wood and brick tones are cozy and inviting especially when balanced with the floral arrangements.
The groom’s boutonniere was made of peacock feathers from family on the bride’s side who raises them.

The trolley ride to and from Deerpark to the main house is a good time to relax and have a few drinks.
We got to spend a few hours wandering the main grounds in front of the Biltmore.

Traveling is a big priority to Anna and Kyle so I found it fitting to photograph their rings on the globe they used for their guest book.
The Royal Suits are easily one of the best wedding bands I’ve seen in a decade.
I hope you enjoyed this Biltmore Estate wedding. Are you interested in a classic wedding venue closer to Charlotte, NC? Check out this styled shoot we photographed at one of Charlotte’s prettiest Farm wedding venues called The Andrews Farm.
