DESTINATION WEDDING VENUES IN WESTERN NORTH CAROLINA
Destination Wedding Venues in NC
Spectacular vistas, mountains washed with color, rolling green hills, sparkling lakes are the choices for brides in Western North Carolina as they consider a wedding venue. Since moving to North Carolina a little over two years ago, as a wedding florist I‘ve had the pleasure of discovering a bit of North Carolina that perhaps not everyone gets to see. I pretty much vote North Carolina as the most beautiful state I’ve ever seen and these wedding venues are so outstanding.
Greystone Inn-LAKE TOXAWAY
Located about an hours drive from Asheville in the Blue Ridge Mountains the graceful Inn borders a gorgeous private lake and is surrounded by breathtaking vistas. I’ve been fortunate to have two weddings at this venue, one in the spring and one in the fall when the mountains are blanketed with brilliant red and orange foliage.
If weather permits a favorite site for the ceremony is the deck overlooking the lake but the interior rooms are gracious and accommodate any wedding party.
In addition to the dining accommodations and conference rooms the Inn offers a Spa, swimming pool, fitness room, tennis, golf, hiking and the fabulous Miss Lucy the 26 passenger electric boat where you are treated to a free cruise around the lake and free champagne.
The landscaping and flowering bushes of hydrangeas and quaint stone walkways add to the beauty of this graceful Inn.
Located In Fletcher, NC is a seven -acre ranch of rolling hills, lakes and a few grazing cows. It is so restful and serene and offers lakeside- wedding ceremonies on a small deck overlooking the rolling hills. Also offered are carriage rides, campfires and outdoor catering for up to 5000.
The casual post and beam room can accommodate 400 and there is a dance floor and bar. It is wide open to nature and the perfect setting for a casual wedding.
KEY FALLS INN
A gracious l860s Victorian Farmhouse set on 35 acres of rolling hills is a bed and breakfast boasting five beautiful bedrooms with private baths. It is conveniently located about 2 l/1 miles from the town of Brevard. The Inn accommodates wedding parties and furnishs everything from a large tent to delicious food. There are trails beginning at the Inn that will lead you to the falls, also a tennis court and horse- shoes. The Inn accommodates seventeen overnight guests.
The wedding site you may choose is right at the lake edge surrounded by blooming flowers where guests relax under a tent for the ceremony.
MAGGIE VALLEY COUNTRY CLUB
Located in the town of Maggie Valley, nestled into the Smoky Mountains, Maggie Valley Country Club furnishes your every wedding need, from beautifully appointed rooms and attentive staff to a beautiful a golf course. The vista is magnificent with green lawns, mountains and flowering shrubs.
There are several beautiful banquet rooms, dance floor and a beautiful outdoor Veranda. The lower level of the clubhouse has a spacious changing room for the bridal party as well as a spa.
