It was a rainy morning for Evan + Sarah’s proposal at Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC! We had the entire rose garden to ourselves, and it couldn’t have been more perfect! Sarah was stunned by this beautiful surprise, and I loved capturing every moment of it!
Sure, Evan planned to propose on the esplanade at Biltmore Estate, with a view of the house and mountains behind, however Mother Nature had different plans for this proposal. With the rain, they ended up having a totally private proposal among the roses in the walled garden, and it was absolutely amazing! It was a bit more spontaneous, Evan caught Sarah by total surprise, and the roses y’all, the roses!
Because of the rain, logistics were a bit up in the air at the last minute. Evan did a fabulous job staying in contact with me so that we could adjust his proposal plans on the fly. He was calm and excited, which was perfect for his beautiful proposal!
When I arrived at Biltmore Estate, the plan was to propose inside the conservatory. However, once Evan and Sarah walked into the gardens, the rain lightened enough to propose outside, so Evan quickly opted to propose in the rose garden. I loved this idea. I quickly snuck up the stairs into the rose garden and pretended to take photos of the flowers, while Evan and Sarah casually walked past me hand in hand. Suddenly, Evan stopped Sarah, gave her a kiss, and dropped to one knee. It was such a sweet proposal to watch! Sarah’s reaction was priceless, and the excitement gushed out of her! She of course said “Yes!” and the hugging commenced! It was all so very beautiful!
After Evan’s proposal, we took some time to capture engagement photos of them in the rose garden, and in the conservatory. They were incredibly happy and wore huge smiles throughout the entire rest of our photo session. I loved every minute of it!
Congratulations again, you two!
