As you enter the Biltmore Mansion, the largest home in the United States, located in Asheville, NC, you quickly approach the octagonal sunken Winter Garden on the right of the entrance hall.
You see the stone archways with a ceiling of architecturally sculptured wood and multifaceted glass.
We visited Biltmore in late June and were able to see the costume exhibition of wedding dresses and attire from major motion pictures. The Winter Garden was decorated for wedding style to celebrate the exhibition. (Biltmore.com)
Just outside the Winter Garden, a wedding cake was on display.
Below is wedding gown and wedding attire from the motion picture Daniel Deronda in 2003 on display in the Tapestry Gallery Room which is close to the Winter Garden in the mansion.
It was difficult to take photos because of lighting issues in many of the rooms but at least photos were allowed. I understand only in the last few years has picture taking been permitted.
The Winter Garden was beautiful, and I am so honored that I was able to tour the mansion.

Thanks for stopping in - Judy.
