Biltmore House & Gardens


The terraces and gardens surrounding George Vanderbilt’s chateau make for a distinctive and exclusive event location. Imagine arriving 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, exactly as Mr. and Mrs. Vanderbilt did a century ago. Then, as the sun slowly sets, you’ll continue on to dinner and dancing on the historic South Terrace 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.
