    This past weekend I went to Asheville, NC for a wedding rehearsal/ceremony/reception and shot the entire thing with the X100S and RX1 side by side. After the wedding we did a quick trip to the Biltmore also. No photos allowed inside the Biltmore - heck, you can't even use a sketchpad inside for some inane reason - so I just have a couple exterior shots.

    Thought I'd share some of my favorites from the X100S.

    Little Velvia action to take in the exterior of the reception site :)

    I did all my wedding shots in B&W to differentiate my stuff from the wedding photographer, and mostly focused on candids and family photos while the pros were occupied getting the essential elements.

    And some post-wedding stuff. A visit to Double D's, a converted double decker bus that serves coffee and desserts inside with a small patio seating area outside, and a quick snap of part of the Biltmore exterior.

    Biltmore Estate is an amazing place. Did you shoot in the gardens any?

    Not unless you count the one shot I took of some tulips while leaning out the window of the car :tongue:

    Unfortunately we had just barely enough time to finish the house tour before we had to run in order to make our flight in Charlotte. Hopefully we'll get a chance to go back, I'd like to tour the grounds, take some photos, maybe have a picnic lunch and so on.
