best elopement destinations ashevilleAsheville is a vibrant mountain town situated in the Blue Ridge Mountains, and it's no surprise that this spot is a top destination for eloping on the east coast. Many couples visit Asheville and the North Carolina mountains for an elopement or a modest wedding ceremony with a few close friends or family members. 

With its breathtaking backdrop of mountains, art galleries, and breweries, this darling town is a mecca for anyone looking for a romantic day to remember. We've compiled a list of our favorite elopement venues that will make your day special.

Four of our Favorite Elopement Destinations

1. Wiseman’s Views

Wiseman's View is one of the most stunning views in the Asheville area. Located in the Linville Gorge in Pisgah National Park, this spot is a wonderful and romantic view to exchange your special vows. 

If you need a quick and easy access venue, look no further than Wiseman's Views. This beautiful ceremony location faces east and offers breathtaking views of Hawksbill, Table Rock, and The Chimneys.

2. Pink Bed Trails

Pink Beds, known for its lovely pink flora, is a great hiking area situated in the Pisgah National Forest. Located four miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway, the five-mile loop hike has little elevation change, a rarity in North Carolina's higher mountains. 

If you're seeking a ceremony amongst the butterflies or the fireflies, this is a great spot for a summer elopement.

3. The Blue Ridge Parkway

The Blue Ridge Parkway is an incredible feature of the Blue Ridge Mountains that provides an amazing number of hikes and views. If you enjoy nature, it is also a spectacular place to have your wedding or elopement. 

There is no better place to celebrate love than immersed in the wilderness, reminding you to take a breath and enjoy the beauty with your significant other. If you want a unique place to say "I do," Black Balsam Knob, located off the Blue Ridge Parkway in Pisgah National Forest, has one of the best views in the valley. 

4. Craggy Gardens

Also on the Blue Ridge Parkway, Craggy Gardens is a high-elevation garden sprinkled with various wildflowers and foliage. It's a lovely spot on the Blue Ridge Parkway to elope and just a short hike to experience the beautiful 360-degree views of the mountains and exchange vows. For the most adventurous couples, Craggy Gardens is an incredible spot to tie the knot.
