Biltmore Estate Wedding with Savannah's Fete Photography

Sasha & Sinisa celebrated their nuptials with a stunning destination wedding in Asheville on May 4, 2013 that Fete Photography beautifully captured. The ceremony took place downtown at Basilica of St. Lawrence, followed by a cocktail hour & stunning reception at the Biltmore Estate's Lioncrest Room. The couple's four-legged baby, Chloe, played a crucial part in the celebration & even had a gorgeous floral tribute to her made of moss & orchids; it sat on the couple's lovely wine-themed seating chart.

The proposal, as told by Sasha:

We got engaged in Savannah, GA, in April 2012. Sinisa planned a getaway trip for me to relax after giving a big lecture that took me months to prepare. After having a nice breakfast at the bed and breakfast, we went walking through Savannah, down to the water, around town, the cemetery, and then to Forysth Park. After getting a popsicle in the park, Sinisa stopped near a bench and wanted to sit down. Luckily, Sinisa had a newspaper that he put down on the slightly dirty bench or I wouldn't have sat down, as I was wearing white pants. He then pulled out some chocolate from my favorite chocolatier in Chapel Hill. I was thinking, "why in the world is Sinisa walking around for three hours with melting chocolate in his pocket!?" And then he started saying sweet things, and I realized this was it! Long story short I said "yes," and then he surprised me again by going to a restaurant to get champagne and my family was there waiting for me to celebrate! We celebrated the whole weekend and then when we got back to Atlanta, there was a surprise engagement party with all of my friends! A truly amazing and unforgettable weekend!

Absolutely perfect, from beginning to end! Congratulations, Sasha & Sinisa!!!!
