About

$3,000 Package Price

The Whole Shebang continually strives to help you create a one-of-a-kind, beautiful, and creative wedding in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina.

We absolutely love what we do and there is a real joy in the process of creating a relaxed and fun environment that allows a bride to create her own unique vision of a perfect wedding day. Our job is to pull together every aspect of your vision and handle all of the details so that your wedding day is beautiful, memorable, stress-free, and uniquely YOURS! Whatever your dream, we will help you find innovative ways to make it happen, and guide you every step of the way.

We love the common thread among brides who choose to get married in the mountains. Whether you live in the area, vacationed here growing up, or attended college, there is a deep-rooted connection with nature, the outdoors, and the beauty of the High Country. Whether it's the dream of a casual, rustic backyard BBQ, or a glamorous black tie affair, the one thing all of our clients seem to have in common is that they are creative, soulful, and eager to incorporate the majestic landscape of the Blue Ridge Mountains into the overall vision of their wedding day and share it with their closest friends and family.

We invite you to take a look around, check out the blog, read reviews, browse our facebook and instagram and get a feel for the wedding planning services offered by the The Whole Shebang. Please feel free to contact me directly with any questions you might have. I look forward to hearing from you!

    The Best of the Best

    No words can properly describe how amazing Meris and her team are to work with. If I could give 10 stars I would. Everything was so well taken care of, everything flowed beautifully, I kept wondering who’s wedding I was a guest at! That’s how much fun it was because she had everything so under control from start to finish. Cannot recommend The Whole Shebang enough!! Thank you, Meris!!

    The Whole Shebang's reply:

    Thank you so much for the kind words. We had so much fun with the planning from start to finish! Love you and your family so so much.

    Last-minute elopement help that literally saved the day!

    After we postponed our wedding due to COVID, my fiance and I decided to elope on our original date. Two weeks before we tied the knot, we called Meris and asked for her help planning and creating a beautiful picnic "reception" for ourselves and our four guests. Despite the time constraints and challenges posed by executing a socially distant celebration during a pandemic, Meris sprang to action and helped us scope a ceremony and picnic spot, design a menu, find a designer to work with, and create an experience and celebration we'll never forget. She was responsive, kind, creative, accommodating, and dependable – we are so glad that had her help and would absolutely recommend her for your wedding or elopement!

    The Whole Shebang's reply:

    Thank you for the kind words Lauren. It was an honor to be a part of your special day! What a fun way for us to begin the 2020 wedding season.
