Arriving just before the gate closed, North Carolina wedding photographer TARA HODGES met Chloe and Conner at BILTMORE ESTATE on a divine early spring day. The evening light was beautiful and the warmer spring temperature was perfect for Chloe’s delicate floral dress from V. CHAPMAN.  

Tara tells us, "The evening was a quiet one at Biltmore, giving us magical moments with just the two of them in front of the estate. It was as if we had the whole manor to ourselves. After capturing the stunning textures, mountain views and architecture, we made our way to the awakening gardens for a few moments. The new blooms painted a soft and lovely backdrop.

Conner and Chloe first met in middle school, and have so much love for each other. Conner admires Chloe’s love the Lord, her smile and her heart. And Chloe adores his laugh, work ethics and never-ending kindness towards her
