He got down on one knee, pulled a velvety box from his pocket, and looking deeply into my eyes he asked, “Will you marry me?” *sigh* The Hallmark proposal happened… now what?!? How do you plan a perfect wedding? There is no lack of love in your relationship. You have found your perfect match, your soulmate. You just don’t like all the details of planning that very special event. Furthermore, you don’t really want all the bells and whistles that often add so much stress to the months, weeks, and days before that special day. No worries! Just say “Yes” and leave the details to us! We will help you plan the perfect wedding in Western, NC at Wildberry Lodge.
“If I get married, I want to be very married.”
~ Audrey Hepburn
For a truly intimate event, we have the Wildberry Mountain Elopement for 2 (just you and your special someone). You simply need to pick out your outfits and we’ll do the rest. A non-denominational officiant will perform the wedding with a spectacular mountain background. You will have a gorgeous bridal bouquet and a two-tiered wedding cake with flowers to match your bouquet. No, we didn;t forget the bubbly. We will provide champagne or a sparkling beverage in signature champagne flutes. We’ll also provide one more little detail—witnesses.
We understand that some of you may want just a couple of special family and/or friends with you on this momentous occasion. Great! We have the Wildberry Mountain Deluxe Elopement that includes up to four guests. You will still receive a non-denominational officiant performing the ceremony with a stunning mountain background. However, this time, your guests will be your witnesses as they take their special place by your side. A two-tiered cake for six will again be adorned with floral delights that match your bridal bouquet. This package provides a wonderful intimate moment for you and your very special guests.
Voilà! All the planning is complete. All you need to do is enjoy each other and some precious time together.
If you’d like a slightly larger wedding, we also offer a wedding package that allows for up to 25 guests. On these occasions, we book the entire lodge for your special event. Your ceremony can be held on our deck with a gorgeous mountain view backdrop. We can also set things up at the Forest Retreat in the woods, in the side yard, or at the Tipi. We also provide luxury lodging in our seven guestrooms. We’re happy to discuss the details with you. Just give us a call!
Our Smoky Mountain Lodge
Our lodge just outside Asheville was created because of our love of the area and a passion for warm hospitality. Our Forest Retreat offers two decks, comfy chairs, a cozy fire pit and yummy s’mores. Our Great Room houses a beautiful 32-foot stone fireplace that will keep you warm and cozy on cool nights. More gathering places are found in the Loft and Game Room, each with some things to help you relax and pass the time. You can also enjoy a relaxing soak in our sunken Jacuzzi Spa.
We would love to provide the rest and relaxation for you on your very special day. We hope you’ll be “very married” at Wildberry Lodge. Check availability today!
