I have known Ben since I was five years old, his family and mine have been pretty much inseparable since then. We knew he was going to propose long before Sam did, it was so much fun hearing their relationship unfold along the way. Ben is in a band called Asking Alexandria, so for their wedding, they titled it “Asking Samantha”. They had incredible details throughout the day that really brought out their personality! All of the groomsmen & grooms suits were custom designed, the back of each groomsmen’s jacket was different and represented them, Ben’s jacket featured the Union Jack. Since Ben is originally from the UK, there were british touches throughout the wedding. The venue was a reminder of english manors, the groom’s cake was the big ben, and the candy buffet featured all the best sweets from the UK. Guests flew in from all over the world for this wedding, us from Canada, the couple from New Jersey, the grooms parents and family from the UK and Dubai. Ben’s dad also flew in his old guitar teacher to play at the reception. Ben & Sam married at the Biltmore Estates, Deer Park Lodge, it was a gorgeous indoor/outdoor venue that featured long corridors entirely made of windows, and a beautiful open courtyard. Walking into the courtyard for the ceremony, it was lined with candles and flower petals it was simply breathtaking. Cocktails followed right away, and in place of a guest book Ben & Sam had acoustic guitars for guests to sign. The decor was nothing short of amazing, and guest continued to be in awe once the doors to the reception opened up. The food was as amazing as the decor! Speeches and dances were held outside, and you can tell how much Ben loves his mum from their first dance, I’ve never seen a mother-son dance quite as emotional as theirs. Ben & Sam are the perfect pair, they are so in love and so happy together. Both families are so supportive and were thrilled to be at the wedding in North Carolina.
