I love myself a good garden shoot especially one in such a stunning property as this! Heather Payne captured all this beauty and the stylist Kelly Perry from Philosophy Flowers tells us about the ideas behind the shoot

The Biltmore Estate is a beautifully maintained, century-old Chateau with gorgeous sprawling gardens in the heart of Asheville, North Carolina. With this as our inspiration, we set out to marry old world charm and today's American bride. We pulled our favorite elements from the castle's interior out into the garden -- rich tapestries, primary colors and antiquities curated from world travels. With a modern tapestry from Urban Outfitters as our dinner backdrop and a menu inspired by France, Ireland, Germany, New Zealand and Italy, we brought the bounty of the world to a carefully refined, elegant garden wedding in the South.
