Engage! 13 at Biltmore Estate — Welcome Party and Bonfire

Engage! – The Luxury Wedding Business Summit hosts a Biltmore Estate Welcome Party

Our very own Jenna returned from engage! 13 last week bearing a slew of new ideas and inspirations. engage! 13 is the premiere luxury wedding business summit, and this year it was held at the historic Biltmore Estate right here in the mountains of North Carolina!

The summit is a whirlwind of professional presentations, business-savvy speakers and over-the-top nighttime soirees, including the Welcome Party on the first evening. Here are some stunning (and we meanĀ stunning, y’all!) photos from the first gathering of the wonderful and inspirational weekend, which was a Southern-themed party in Biltmore‘s Antler Hill Barn. This makes for some drool-worthy wedding inspiration!
