Whether you live here or are planning a destination wedding in the Boone/Blowing Rock area, there are tons of creative options for places to hold your mountain dream wedding.
Here's a list of some of my favorite places in the High Country:
This beautiful B and B in Valle Crucis makes it easy for the wedding party and close family to all stay together and not have to go anywhere! Wedding and reception can both take place on site. Also, they have a wonderful kitchen with lots of room for your caterer to work.
Along those same lines, you can also rent out the
for your wedding. Located between Boone and Blowing Rock on Shulls Mill Road, they are larger than the Taylor House and have a great deal of options to accommodate you. It's also a place where you can have your wedding somewhere else and book them just for the reception. They have both indoor and outdoor options. Their caterer is "in house".
in Blowing Rock is another way to go. There are plenty of places for out of town guests and the wedding party to stay whether it's at the Lodge or renting out condo's near by. Typically brides like to get married down by the lake and then have a tent nearby or closer to the lodge but there are a lot of different choices and configurations that you can explore if you book early enough. They also provide "in house" catering.
Green Park Inn is completely renovated and booking for the 2011 Season. You can have wedding and reception there or just the reception. They have “in house” catering by Chef James Welch formerly of Crippens Country Inn and Restaurant and a couple of different options for banquet rooms. Needless to say it’s convenient since all of your guests can stay together on site.
has a banquet room that you can use as well as their sun room in conjunction with the bar for a smaller affair. They also have an upstairs room that can be held as a rain location if you choose to have your ceremony outside. They’re conveniently located right in the heart of downtown Blowing Rock
If you are planning to have the wedding and reception at two different locations, we have a couple of historic chapels in the area that are great for smaller weddings. There are also a handful of churches that will host your wedding even if you are not a member of the church. There are public parks and gardens that allow weddings in the Boone area. Check out Daniel Boone Native Gardens and Shady Grove nursery.
I'm not going to list all of the venues that are available to use right now but... there is certainly not a shortage of breathtaking locations in the High Country to plan your special day.
