Biltmore House got a special Christmas delivery Wednesday as hundreds turned out to watch the annual tree raising ceremony.

"They both loved it, saw it last year and said it's a one-of-a-kind experience, so we're really excited to be a part of that," Biltmore House visitor Theresa Lytle said.

Photojournalist Ken Corn shows us how the giant tree is lifted into place in the Banquet Hall.

Members of Biltmore's floral and engineering teams decorate the tree with hundreds of ornaments.
