The North Carolina mountains are a spectacular and serene setting for weddings and elopements of all kinds. From the rolling hills surrounding America’s largest home at Biltmore in Asheville, to the picturesque and panoramic views at Chimney Rock, to the romance of luxury resorts and inns in Highlands and Hendersonville, or the excitement of a mountaintop ceremony at Sugar Mountain, romance abounds in the mountains. Add in a bit history, lots of outdoor activities, shopping, dining and a large dose of Mother Nature, and you have everything you need for the perfect wedding weekend.

North Carolina is also home to more than 400 individually owned grape vineyards and more than 100 wineries. Many vineyards have tasting rooms, wine cellars and pretty outdoor settings, any of which can be used for your ceremony, reception or both. Vineyards and wineries lend themselves naturally to certain themes, like Tuscan, rustic or elegant backdrops, which makes it easy to plan the details of your wedding.

North Carolina’s many options offer waterfronts, historic architecture, sunrises or sunsets as backdrops for your wedding memories. Wherever in the state you choose, you will be able to find a beautiful venue for your wedding.

Truly One of a Kind

“As a planner, a DJ can make or break your wedding and Ben definitely helped make this event. He is truly one of a kind, who not only is a talented DJ, but an extremely talented musician. He played Cello for the Ceremony, and incorporated live instruments such as guitar, drums, and violin into the reception. When we did the bride and groom send off, he led the entire reception party guests out the door in a line leading them with a drum. The guests loved it! Definite memories were made for both the bride and groom and their guests!”
