Biltmore House & Gardens

The terraces and gardens surrounding George Vanderbilt’s castle make for a distinctive and exclusive event location. Imagine pulling up to lush, blooming gardens in a horse-drawn carriage before exchanging vows in front of America’s largest home. A cocktail reception on the Library Terrace allows guests to savor views of misty blue mountains, just as Mr. and Mrs. Vanderbilt did a century ago. Then, as the sun slowly sets, you’ll continue on to dinner and dancing in the historic Italian Gardens just beside Biltmore House.

Guests attending a wedding in this location are able to enjoy all Biltmore has to offer, because estate daytime admission is included.
