Nantahala Weddings & Events : J + K
A little west of the always popular Asheville, NC lies a beautiful, lush, mountain wedding venue called Nantahala Weddings & Events! It’s tucked away in the heart of the Nantahala National Forest and sits right beside the beautiful Lake Nantahala. When a lot of newly engaged couples start their search for a wedding venue in WNC, there are a lot of wants and needs. Some want to be by the water, almost of them want a mountain view, and a lot of people want to be away from the hustle and bustle of the city where there aren’t any noise ordinances or neighbors to worry about. Nantahala Weddings & Events is one of the few scenic venues to fit all of these perfectly and if you think this sounds amazing, you should just see it in the fall when the leaves start to change!
Our story for Joe and Kim’s wedding day at Nantahala starts right in the middle of fall season and it truly was one of the most beautiful wedding days we were blessed to be a part of this past year! In addition to all of the aforementioned (and gorgeous) scenery, the weather could not have been better for Joe and Kim’s special day. The thing that really stood out to us on their wedding day was the close connections Kim and Joe shared with their family and friends! From the moment we arrived we hit the ground running for an action packed wedding day full of fun! I know from my perspective walking in and meeting Joe for the first time, it was immediately like hanging with old friends and I’m pretty sure I got invited to have a drink twice in the first 20 minutes. My kind of dudes for sure! I typically don’t partake on wedding days because I’m a lightweight, but for everyone else, it was bottoms up, good times, and nonstop laughs from beginning to end. Looking back, I think our favorite part of Joe and Kim’s wedding day besides theses lovelys crushing their couples portraits at sunset, was the reception. Our friends at Rock Bottom Entertainment got the party going and it didn’t slow down all night! For anybody whose been following our work for a while, you know we love the people and we love to see them be themselves when the lights get low! Joe and Kim and their loved ones did just that and it was definitely one we won’t soon forget!
Big congrats to Joe and Kim, a special thank you to all of the amazing vendors who help to make their day perfect and as always we hope you all enjoy following along!
