“Because loving you comes as naturally as breathing. I don’t have to think about it. I just do it.”
-Russell’s wedding vows
There were many beautiful things about Russell and Jasmin’s wedding day. It would be easy to say that the most beautiful thing about that day was the rare Georgia snow, but the thing that stood out the most was the love they carried for one another.
We could hardly believe our eyes as we made our way to the Biltmore Ballroom’s for Russell and Jasmin’s big day. It’s rare that Georgia even gets a dusting of snow, but we found ourselves in a winter wonderland! We couldn’t help but think that the heavens had given the bride and groom a gift. After all, if anyone was hoping for a fairytale wedding, it would be Jasmin! A lover of disney, and talented fashion blogger, Jasmin has one of the sweetest hearts we’ve ever encountered. It was easy to see why Russell fell for her. You could see it in his eyes from the first look, to the last dance, Russell had found his princess.
It was at Jasmin’s 23rd birthday party that she and Russell met. Five and half years later their love story brought them to the beautiful Biltmore Ballrooms where they promised each other forever in front of family and friends. After a quick wardrobe change, (Jasmin into a stunning sparkly number, and Russell into a dapper black tuxedo and glitter clad Louboutin loafers!) the couple enjoyed a beautiful dinner and toasts from their adoring friends and family. The dance floor was not taken for granted by their amazing guests! But the award for best moves goes to Russell and his groomsmen! They surprised Jasmin with a choreographed dance during the garter toss. It was amazing! Everyone loved it!
Snow in the city, a ballroom for a princess and her prince charming. We really couldn’t ask for much more as lovers of the sentimental. Thank you, Jasmin and Russell for including us in your magical day!
We just can’t get over the winter wonderland that was our city! Magical indeed.
Pretty little details fit for a Princess.

Such a handsome groom. We loved his velvet bow tie. Perfect for a snowy winter wedding!
The sweetest first look. The grounds of the Biltmore look even better with a touch of fresh snow!
We LOVED Russell and Jasmin’s bridal party. They made everything so fun! And can we talk about those florals for a moment? Unique Floral Expressions did such a beautiful job!
We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again. We adore you, Bilmore Ballrooms.
We loved all the bright and airy details for Jasmin and Russell. The gold, green and white accents fit perfectly for the art deco design of the Biltmore.
“So today our Happily Ever After begins….I promise to commit my life to you til’ death do us part. To sacrifice and compromise. To make you proud of me. And to love you unconditionally.”
-Jasmin’s Vow to Russell
Sweet and creative alternative to a guest book. We loved that Jasmin and Russell incorporated something unique to them for their guests to be a part of!
Jasmin changed into a glamorous, glittery off the shoulder dress for the reception. We can’t tell which gown she looked more stunning in! We would also like to point out Russell’s incredible Louboutin loafers!
Cake and a sparkly table cloth? Yes, please!
After the bouquet toss, Russell surprised Jasmin with a choreographed dance. With the help of his groomsmen, Russell gave his new bride a moment she’ll remember forever (and one her dad would probably like to forget. Sorry, dad!)
It’s got to be the shoes! Whew! We’re still blushing!
The evening ended like all the best ones do, with warm embraces from those you love.
