Our Elopement Package does not include a venue, you are responsible for finding a location suitable for you and your fiance. Here are a few options you may want to consider:
Hidden Flower Tiny Farm
If you want a super simple elopement with beautiful mountain views and a rustic barn, then check this out! Only 5 miles from Downtown Asheville and even closer to the Parkway, this unique tucked-away property includes 5 acres of mountainside, pastures, gardens, and a tiny orchard. They are currently working towards 100% sustainability, and if you enjoy a more off the grid experience, then you can stay on-site in a tiny house, yurt, or camper. Click here for more info.
West Asheville Micro-Chapel
If your vision of getting married includes “going to the chapel,” but you want to keep it super simple, then this Micro-Chapel is where you want to be for your elopement! The 400 sq-ft chapel is nestled in a private backyard oasis, located in convenient and hip West Asheville. You’ll have exclusive access to a separate bridal suite for getting ready, including a mini-fridge for keeping your champagne chilled and ready for a celebratory toast! Click Here for more info.
Blue Ridge Parkway
There are plenty of beautiful spots on the majestic Blue Ridge Parkway to have an intimate elopement ceremony. Locations we like include Glassmine Falls Overlook and Craggy Gardens. Depending on the location you choose, additional travel fees may apply. You are also required by law to obtain a permit, which will cost you $100. Keep in mind that the Parkway is a public place and the permit does not technically allow you to block off areas to keep the public out. Click here for more info.
Botanical Gardens at Asheville
This is a lovely outdoor setting which is very close to Downtown Asheville. You can get married in the middle of a mountain stream, in a meadow, on a bridge, or in a gazebo. This is a public place and you are not technically permitted to block off an area, but we have found that others are very respectful when they see a wedding ceremony underway. You will need to contact the Gardens for permission, and it will run you $100 payable to the Gardens. Click Here for contact info on their website.
