Charlotte started her day at Wink Salon in the Biltmore Village in Asheville, NC surrounded by family and laughter. She had been dreaming of this day for decades and planning it for months. Once her hair and makeup was complete, she headed to her venue, Haiku I Do, only steps down the same road.

“Now it feels real”, Charlotte described when I met her in the dressing room. I totally know that dream-like feeling that comes right before the wedding. And this was the moment that her dreams were coming true. She was marrying Joe whom she fell in love with years before. Joe was greeting friends and family just beyond Charlotte’s sight and was then whisked away to the ceremony chapel before Charlotte would step outside.

The music began and Charlotte made the beautiful journey from the stone cottage to the chapel with loved ones watching in delight. Joe’s eyes met hers as she walked down the aisle and all guests could feel the palpable magnetic energy in their hearts as well.

After the final kiss within the ceremony, their day continued with the joy that started it all. Cake cutting, champagne toast, family photos and portraits quickly followed in time.

But the best is for us to see how these two bloom in the time ahead. They now have the rest of their lives together to love each other and all around them. And we are all forever blessed by their example. Congratulations, Joe + Charlotte!

But wait…before you go through all of the gorgeous photos below, did you know that Haiku I Do will do all of the planning for you? They have ALL of the amenities including gorgeous floral, cake, music, flatware, tables, chairs, and they will also set up conversation areas throughout the property to create a gorgeous atmosphere for your guests. You really don’t need to do a thing or make any more phone calls after visiting Haiku I Do. This is just one of the features that my brides rave about after booking their elopement at Haiku.  Give them a call and you will see what I’m talking about!
