Here are a few options to consider if you are looking for a location for your elopement ceremony:
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.
Looking Glass Falls
If you want a waterfall backdrop, Looking Glass Falls is a good choice. It’s easily accessible, no hiking involved, just a long set of stairs to get to the ceremony spot. This is a very popular tourist destination, so it’s likely that there will be people there, but you’re sure to get some great photos! There’s no permit required, but since the Falls are located outside of Buncombe County, we charge an additional $70 travel fee for the officiant and photographer ($35 each). 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.
Free or Plan-B Indoor Option
In the event of inclement weather, we can perform your elopement at StudioWed just a few minutes from Downtown Asheville. StudioWed is a charming 100-yr-old home which has been converted into a wedding showroom and meeting place. The home features several nicely decorated rooms with fireplaces which create the perfect cozy and intimate setting to get married. We can also offer this as a free venue option for those who want to keep things super simple.
For your marriage license, you need two adults to sign as witnesses, which we can provide.
