A magical little dreamy mountain haven
Kristen, the Events Director, was INCREDIBLE to work with throughout the planning process. She always had answers for my random one-off questions, and I enjoyed those emails frankly. She is such a delight.
Paul, Laurel Falls' owner, was also AMAZING as he called us the day of our rehearsal dinner on The Lodge porch with great news that our linens were arriving just in time for the rehearsal dinner. The attention to detail and well wishes were so very appreciated as we shuffled around to make sure everything was just right. Andy was ALSO incredible helping us on the day of to make sure all our wedding guests knew where they were going.
You just can't beat this level of service, on top of a location that just cannot be replicated. I felt like Snow White surrounded by cute little gophers and birds and my fully adult human dwarves (aka my friends and family it was dope).
Laurel Falls June 2023
It was everything we imagined and more. We had about 15 family and friends stay with us on site for three days and 47 total guests at the wedding. Everyone was awestruck and continuously asked us how we found this place. The word of the week was ‘magical’. We had friends and family travel in from Minnesota, Florida, Nebraska, Washington, New York, etc. Everyone was easily able to find accommodation in the area and flights were surprisingly smooth with Asheville being just a short drive away.
The cabins were cozy, stocked with everything we needed, and allowed everyone to have their own space/cabin for the three days. The venue itself had so many versatile spaces – we had our ceremony at the boulder site, reception at the rustic barn, rehearsal dinner and brunch on the lodge porch.
As for Laurel Falls staff – Kristen was amazing. She was always available to chat through questions I had and was so organized in all the information she shared with us prior to the wedding. She even provided a vendor list, which was so appreciated because I wasn’t from the area and didn’t know where to start! The day of the wedding there was a staff member on site who worked with our coordinator to ensure everything was set up and ready to go.
I cannot recommend Laurel Falls enough! It was perfect and exactly what we were looking for.
Best decision we made for our wedding!
