    Wedding at chapel in the sky!

    Great place to have a wedding! My wife and I just got married at Nantahala Weddings two weeks ago and had the best time. The vendors list from Jody ( the owner) were amazing and the nicest people in the world. I would suggest Tracey Passmore for the caterer. Tracey and her husband did an amazing job with BBQ and very professional. Jodie McCord did great with the flowers and we both really enjoyed how she used a lot of natural flowers from around the area and from her very own farm. The wedding cake from Sally White was not just beautiful but also tasted like heaven. Shayla Khalife made the planning process easy and smooth on the big day. She was definitely a pleasure to work with. Last but surely not least, Mike Waller, the photographer for our wedding was a great match for us and went above and beyond! He was a pleasure to work with and went out of his way the next day to get our pictures up at Wayah Bald and the waterfall close by to the venue. On our wedding day it was raining, the one day out of the whole week but Jody was prepared with a very nice clear canopy setup at the Chapel in the Sky so we could still have our ceremony. Overall, we both were very impressed from beginning to end and couldn’t have asked for a better place to have our wedding. Thank you to all the vendors and Jody, you all truly made our day special!

    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!!!
