After a whirlwind proposal in Paris, Samantha Sadler (26 and in sales) and Brandon Moorhead (26 and in real estate) planned an equally romantic wedding at Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina. "We choose this location because my family is from the North Carolina area and after visiting it for so many years, I couldn't think of anywhere more beautiful to get married in the fall!" says Samantha. Since the couple exchanged vows during an October outdoor ceremony, Samantha and Brandon didn't want to over power the beautiful colors of the picturesque foliage. Instead, the couple worked with a romantic color palette of ivory, pink and gold for a classic-yet-whimsical ambiance. To play up their autumnal date, the pair had mini gold pumpkins lining the aisle. Candles, gold pumpkins and rustic wooden boxes filled with ivory and blush flowers warmed the indoor reception and a southern menu added a local flare. To make their guests feel special, Samantha hand wrote each person a note that was at their table when they sat down. "This was very special for me because I was able to personally thank them for traveling to North Carolina to celebrate our wedding," says Samantha. "I was also able to say some sentiments to close friends and family that wouldn't have had time to express the day of the wedding."

To complete her romantic look and complement her gown's intricate lace bodice, Samantha's mom made a silk ribbon to tie around her waist.
