Brown Mountain Beach Resort is absolutely enchanting! It seems like just yesterday my wife Chelsea and I were meeting with Ron and Julie to discuss potentially having our wedding there. The first thing we noticed was how stunningly beautiful it was. Many other venues seek to artificially create the wonderfully natural look and feel that BMBR so casually possesses. Serene mountains are the backdrop for a series of unique, cozy cottages along the banks of a magnificent river. The second thing we noticed was what genuine and thoughtful people lived and worked there. The entire staff is extremely friendly and making sure that you have an enjoyable stay is always their top priority.Sent on 10/30/2016
Roughly one year after that initial meeting, Chelsea and I held our wedding at Brown Mountain Beach Resort. The best way we can describe it now, a month later, is that it feels like a wonderful dream that we will carry with us for the rest of our lives. Our closest family and friends stayed in the cabins from Thursday through Sunday; enjoying terrific weather, hiking on the nearby trails, and rafting up and down the river. We held a rehearsal dinner in the reception hall and Ron was extremely generous in allowing us free rein of the property.
The wedding itself was simply perfect! Julie served as our coordinator, transforming into Wonder Woman and turning all of our thoroughly planned details into a living, breathing reality. The resort staff leaped into action as our guests enjoyed a cocktail hour on the outdoor patio. Our ceremony and reception went exactly as we had hoped and imagined! We capped off the evening by roasting s’mores by the river. ;-) Many of our guests told us it was the best wedding they had ever been to! As for us, we never imagined how relaxing our wedding could be; an ideal getaway and celebration of love with the people we adore. Thank you Brown Mountain Beach Resort for a picture perfect wedding and an unforgettable weekend!

We got married at BMBR a month ago. We planned the whole thing from Wilmington, NC. We weren’t exactly sure what to expect since we had only visited twice. Everything turned out to be even more than we had hoped for, it was perfect. When our family arrived earlier in the week the beach was washed out, but Ron worked all week to make sure it was back intact for the wedding. They even raked it smooth for us. Ron was super cooperative, and responsive as I called him every day the week leading up to the wedding. Most of the wedding guests were able to stay in the cabins and yurts and it was great to have everyone there all weekend. We would do it all over again and not change a thing. Julie was incredible, and is an absolute must if you’re planning an event here. She provided a wonderful list of vendors for us to work with. Once we got to the venue we didn’t have to do anything except enjoy time with our friends and family and each other. Her staff was friendly and did a great job as well. We had guests say that it was the best venue they had ever been to. There were campfires on the beach, hiking, fishing, we even went tubing the morning of the wedding. Love love love BMBR.

I love this venue...my daughter picked this when she decided on getting married and never looked back. Working with Ron and Julie was an awesome experience and this made my daughter's wedding so very special. Thanks so much for everything!!!
