    Made all my wedding dreams come true!!!

    When we were looking for a wedding venue in the North Carolina mountains, all the venues we talked to had strings attached. Then we found Nantahala Weddings and events! First it's an incredible place with the most stunning views! The owner Jodie was was such a breath of fresh air, She loves what she does and gives you INCREDIBLE recommendations for vendors, which you can use or you can find your own vendors. It's the reason we chose to get married here, besides the view. I wanted to be able to hire who we wanted to for the big day and Nantahala Weddings and events gives you that freedom!!! You can keep it simple and you will have an amazing wedding or you can put your own flare in the space and really make it your own. With all that said you cant find a more beautiful backdrop for your wedding!!! Couldn't recommend this place more!!!
