Jackie and Britt got married on their Seventh Anniversary! Not only does Jackie have an obsession with all things vintage and antique, but their wedding venue, The Asheville Masonic Temple was built in 1915.
“We met one fateful Tuesday evening at a dive bar in downtown Asheville where I attempted to appear callous and uninterested while he dove into a failed magic trick and nervously name-dropped his band. He was the most ridiculous, brazen, yet hilariously resilient guy I had ever met and I suppose the rest was history, as the cliche goes! Britt and I are both huge fans of music and spend hours geeking out over our records or going to shows, and spend just as much time gushing over all our crazy animals.”
Their wedding day in Asheville was a wet, foggy, and cold February. Not only did this weather set the perfect mood, but the color of the bridal party was also grey and navy. How perfect?! The bridal dresses were custom made from Etsy specifically for the long, navy, velvet dresses!
The coolest part of this wedding was their ceremony space! This 1915 Theatre is still used and kept everyone warm from the 30 degree weather from the Asheville chill! Their guests sat around them in a half circle and in the balcony giving this ceremony an amazing feeling of love.
The coolest part of this wedding was the food! Jackie is vegan while Britt eats everything! 67 Biltmore created two tables! One being vegan friendly while the second table having all the other food. Including the cake being vegan! I am all about sweet potato gnocchi now.
Thank you to all these AMAZING vendors!
