While words can not describe how picturesque the Spanish/Mediterranean style Four Seasons Biltmore resort is, I will state that it is even more beautiful in person.
While it looks historic, it is very clean and new-something that is not found in Northern California. After much prodding from my husband's mother who insisted on not having a destination wedding, I made a plea to have us visit what is the most georgeous hotel in operation. I had decided that I would let the hotel speak for itself and sure enough….after spending 20 minutes there,the decision was made without any poking or prodding on my part and a date secured to have our wedding there. To date, my husbands parents are very happy to have chosen this fine establishment and as for others, I constantly hear it was the most beautiful wedding.
How lucky was I? To be able to have a wedding at such an exquisite, classy, beautiful venue? It gets better. If you are a couple looking to get married, look no further. To say I felt like a princess is an understatement. My husband and I were guests of the Four Seasons for four days and four nights. The best four days and nights of my life thanks to Catering Manager, Maria Axiotis. Maria made us feel so very special. If there was anything I needed, I got it. If I asked for it in advance it was there. No joke. From IPOD player to a steamer, my steak dinner cut up for me lol, it was all done. Maria had snacks that she knew we liked there everyday. My husband and I met at a car wash and so Maria had the fabulous dessert chef make us a dessert plate that resembled the car wash with a toy car underneath it, much like my car in what was exhibited in our engagement photos. Unbelievable. So much thought was put into us and I am so deeply moved and touched to this day and will always be.
Maria was there for us for everything. She is incredibly wonderful at what she does and is such an asset to the five star hotel because its people like this that make the stay memorable and special. She was available during all our meetings, our food tasting (Attention brides and grooms do not eat before the tasting, they are more than generous!) all the way up to following up after the wedding to see photos. Extraordinary customer service.
I want to also mention everyone that waited on us the day of the wedding. Stupendous. I honestly felt like a princess and it wasn't my gown at all. They made me feel like a million dollars. It was a very overwhelming day and I honestly love everyone at this hotel because I have never felt so special and by people I just met. I hope this gets read during a meeting because I mean every word. If you are a bride and groom, I know you will have the most incredible, beautiful wedding with the best team of people any one can ask for. If you are proposing to your girlfriend and want to make it special, she is a very lucky girl. If you are a married couple or a group of friends wanting to partake in spa/golf and wine tastings, look no further. I envy anyone who gets to come and stay at this hotel and am the luckiest girl for having had the opportunity to have my special day made even more special. Thank you Maria and everyone at the Four Seasons.
