Chris and Diana’s Misty Mountain Wedding at Banner Elk Winery

With the love of their friends and family and the gorgeous mid October leaves behind them, these two love birds wed on a  lovely misty day in the Banner Elk area of the NC High Country. 
Dark clouds threatened, but in lieu of moving the wedding ceremony to the barn, Diana and Chris decided that they wanted to get married outside on top of a mountain, “for better or for worse”. The guests shared in their adventurous spirit and joined them on the lawn of the Blueberry Villa at with raincoats and umbrellas. Diana walked down the aisle to a beautiful song that Chris' uncle Pablo had composed especially for their wedding.
The intimate reception following was truly memorable featuring dazzling food and deserts from Reid’s Catering, hilarious toasts and surprise multimedia productions, and a really serious dance party. We had so much fun with this crew.
All and all, a wonderful way to end out 2014 season. Congratulations Diana and Chris, all the best!!!

Super Stylish and Fun Filled Wedding at Eseeola in Linville, NC


Can’t wait to share more amazing photos from Maggie and Richards stylish soiree at The Camp at Eseeola in Linville. did an wonderful job documenting the wedding. Maggie just made my day with this heartfelt review on Wedding Wire. It’s brides like this that make my job such a pleasure!
“Meris was a dream to work with! She was always super responsive, professional, knowledgeable, and full of great ideas and guidance. I would not have wanted to work with anyone else to plan my wedding.
The team she put together for the wedding day was absolutely wonderful and stayed on top of EVERYTHING. They handled every little detail, but still kept me in the loop on the important stuff, so we didn't have to worry about a thing (even when a couple of our groomsmen had a few too many beers / Scotch before the ceremony!).
I HIGHLY recommend The Whole Shebang for your wedding planning needs. I could sing Meris's praises all day long :) She really is an absolute joy to work with!”
