This sunset proposal on the lower esplanade in front of Biltmore Estate's Christmas trees is giving me all the merry feels! Tom proposed to Sarah in this gorgeous spot and she was shocked! I loved her reaction and it was an honor to capture it all!
Christmas at Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC is such a magical time. With Christmas trees on the front lawn, the cool weather, extra beautiful sunsets, and Candlelight Christmas Evening tours, it’s a perfect time to visit the estate. What’s even more perfect, is proposing on the estate this time of year! Tom contacted me a few weeks before his proposal and wanted to create a magical moment for his girlfriend Sarah. He knew exactly the spot in which he wanted to propose, the lower esplanade with the Christmas trees in the background. I LOVED that he was so prepared and knew exactly what he wanted, and what Sarah would love!
When the day came to propose, I walked out onto the esplanade, took in the beautiful view, and got my camera gear ready. As I waited for Tom and Sarah, I spotted them coming up to the esplanade balcony, and finally up on the esplanade. They slowly walked together up the grass, and then turned around to look at the magnificent view. Tom stood next to Sarah, saying what I imagine was the sweetest of words, and then turned to her and got down on one knee. She was utterly surprised and brought her hands to her face in shock. She said yes right away and they shared the most beautiful kiss in the most beautiful spot on Biltmore Estate! I absolutely loved it!
Tom and Sarah are such a sweet couple! We had a wonderful time together walking around the grounds, taking photos among the Christmas trees and on the south terrace, and finishing up in my favorite spot at Christmas time, the esplanade balcony. With the Christmas lights shining bright at dusk and a peek of mountain views next to the house, it’s such a gorgeous spot!
Congratulations again, you two!
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Review from Sarah + Tom on Google- "I wanted a surprise proposal at the Biltmore. But what is a surprise proposal if someone isn’t there to capture the moment? Flying into Asheville from Florida, I wasn’t sure where to start when searching for a photographer. Jessica was incredible! She’s knowledgeable and kind and made the whole process seamless. Her professionalism is unmatched. Thank you, Jessica, for capturing this special moment. We will never forget it. I would 10/10 recommend Jessica to anyone looking for a photographer in Asheville!!"
