Whether you want to marry at a rustic Asheville wedding venue or toast with your favorite beverage at one of Asheville’s craft breweries, there is an array of wedding venue that fits your plans and budget. Discover these four concepts that match your July Asheville wedding themes, and enjoy customizing your wedding style to make your special day truly uniquely. 

  1. Fairy Tale: Consider getting married on the grounds of the largest home in America, the famous Biltmore Estate, for your fairy tale wedding. Another magical option that ensures stunning pictures is Homewood, located just north of downtown Asheville. This 1920s-era manor features Appalachian stone fireplaces, an original mahogany wall, and an iron chandelier. FOr a spectacular 360-degree view of the Blue Ridge Mountains in July, The Crest Center & Pavilion won’t disappoint with an elegant lodge setting and a glass-enclosed pavilion for a magical wedding event. For an indoor setting, the Grand Bohemian Hotel located across the entrance to Biltmore is a Tudor-inspired boutique hotel that features a variety of wedding fairy tales. Settings include a garden terrace and formal ballroom. 
  2. Outdoorsy: If you have a particular natural scenery in mind, Asheville has plenty to deliver. Check out the 500-acre Claxton Farm that features a unique barn surrounded by fields that offer a pristine setting for formal or casual weddings. Or visit Hidden River, nestled in a valley with long-range mountain views that is perfect for an all-inclusive destination wedding in July. Read some more ideas here.
  3. Elopement and Small Weddings: The Blue Ridge Parkways has inspired many countless songs, books, and films, so why not get inspired and celebrate your special day on the majestic mountain range. You can secure your wedding permit for nuptials along the Blue Ridge Parkway or have a wedding photoshoot along America’s favorite drive before or after your elopement at the Asheville Botanical Gardens.
  4. Indie and Non-Traditional: Seeking an urban, modern, or non-traditional wedding in July? Many downtown breweries and music venues provide an ideal setting. Book your reception and after-party at the world-famous music venue, Orange Peel. Incorporate a bit of Asheville’s River Arts District with wedding portraits from an array of talented photographers, and use the art-styled warehouse as the backdrop. Host your wedding at riverside Salvage Station with indoor and outdoor stages, multiple bars that will help with rock and indie aesthetic.
