Biltmore Estate Visits

Click on all photos for larger images (unless indicated otherwise). Until late 2015, photos were not allowed in the house.

We saw wedding preparations or photo sessions every visit from spring to December 2015 - no idea how much this costs!! One time there were at least three. Two visits the bridesmaids had on the same (ugly) gray chiffon dresses.

December 5, 2015 ~ Sunny Day ~ We had lunch at the Stable Café & walk in the walled garden.
