Top Destinations for Wedding Venues in NC
When exploring options for planning a wedding in North Carolina, some of the top destinations are…
- Outer Banks
- Western North Carolina (Blue Ridge Mountains)
We may be biased, but we know from our own experience, as well as our guests’, that once surrounded by the beauty of the mountains on the western side of North Carolina, it really becomes a difficult location to resist. The Blue Ridge Mountains are the oldest mountain range in the world, rich in natural beauty, history, located perfectly so that all 4 seasons are experienced in balance. Nestled just above Georgia and just east of Tennessee, and just south of Virginia the western part of the state is an easily accessed travel destination that many choose for vacationing, retirement and settling down to build a peaceful homestead. If you require a beach or ocean view for your wedding, then perhaps the Outer Banks or Coastline might be a better fit, but as long as the ocean is not a requirement, Western North Carolina is the clear winner as the top destination for a wedding venue in the state.
