A Classic Navy Wedding With a Rustic Twist at the Inn on Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina
rn Megan Koonts (27 and a physician assistant) and Wes Payne (27 and an accountant) perfectly combined classic and rustic for their October nuptials in Asheville, North Carolina. Megan and Wes were raised and educated in North Carolina and still live in the state. Saying they are proud of their home would be and understatement, and they wanted their guests to experience the state the couple love so much. “The Inn on Biltmore Estate was everything we hoped for and more in a wedding venue,” Megan says. “No other site in Asheville offered such personalized attention, first class catering and those beautiful mountain views.” The mountainous terrain inspired the earth-toned palette, including shades of navy, gray, green and ivory. Megan and Wes worked with Jocelyn Huntley from Firefly Event Company to bring all the details to life. “Event coordinators are there to make sure everything goes smoothly and that you are able to enjoy your day,” Megan says. “I don't know what we would have done without Jocelyn.” Kimberly Hyder from Two Buds and a Blossom added stunning floral arrangements that really embodied the shabby-chic theme. One of our favorite parts was Megan and Wes’s romantic first dance to “In My Life” by the Beatles. “Wes and I grew up listening to the Beatles and this song has always held a special place in our hearts, plus it was short and sweet.” Megan says. There are so many details we love—see them all, beautifully captured by Melissa Linney from Melissa Maureen Photography, below.
