Engage! 13 Biltmore Estate – The Luxury Wedding Business Summit hosts a Great Gatsby Finale NC Event
This is the third installation in our Engage! 13 Recap Series. Engage! is the premiere luxury wedding business summit, and this year it was held at the historic Biltmore Estate right here in the mountains of beautiful North Carolina! Our very own Jenna Olender attended this year, and we’re so excited to share some of her experiences and these beautiful photos!
Engage! summits are well known throughout the wedding world as one of the best opportunities to network with other industry professionals, gain business insight from conference speakers and presenters, and experience some of the most over the top, lavish extravaganzas! To close out the wonderful three day event, attendees gathered on the Biltmore‘s South Terrace for a stunning (truly, truly stunning!) Great Gatsby-inspired Gala. Enjoy these beautiful photos and get inspired, especially if you’re planning an Art Deco, 1920’s-style wedding or event! Also, be sure to check out the video by I Do Films at the end of the post, featuring details of Day Three and special shots of the Gala!
