Deerpark Wedding: Emily & Michael

Deerpark Wedding: Emily & Michael

Even though they knew each other in high school, Michael and Emily didn’t start dating until they attended Wofford College together, and it was another 7 years before they tied the knot. This special day was worth the wait though, and I’m so glad I got to be a part of it! Growing up, Emily spent most of her summers in Asheville, and it was one of the favorite weekend getaways for she and Michael while they were in college, so it seemed like an obvious choice for their wedding destination.

Emily and Michael were married at Lioncrest on Biltmore Estate followed by a reception at Deerpark. Part of what made this wedding so much fun to plan were all the little details. Emily had a lot of ideas about the food, which resulted in some of the most unique food stations we’ve ever had. Laid out over rustic wood tables, there was a bruschetta station, a French fry station complete with both regular and sweet potato fries, and a mouth watering dessert station with mini strawberry shortcakes and eclairs.
