Carolina B&B Weddings

Elopements and Small Weddings

Elopement Asheville NC

Here at the Carolina Bed & Breakfast we are happy to host your small wedding or elopement. Our Asheville bed and breakfast is the perfect spot for an intimate ceremony. Just a short walk from downtown Asheville, our romantic North Carolina inn provides easy access to the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains. Chose a secluded corner near our koi pond, surround yourselves with the fragrance and flowers of our herb garden or hold your ceremony under the grape arbor near the rose garden. A wedding inside the inn will typically take place in one of our two parlors whose vibrant colors and original artwork bring brightness to the occasion. In the evening retire to one of our romantic bedrooms. In the winter enjoy your own private fireplace. In the summer, open your window to the fresh air and birdsong from our garden. Each room boasts a private bath, many with Jacuzzi or Whirlpool tubs.
With five rooms plus a cottage we are happy to host weddings of up to 20 people or just the two of you. All ceremonies require a two night stay at the Carolina for the Bride and Groom and any guests.

“We were thrilled with our experience at Carolina B&B. They went above and beyond anything we could have hoped for, from a simple daffodil bouquet from the garden to the delicious hors d’oeurves for our guests. Our wedding day was absolutely magical, thanks to Susan, James and Sara.” ~Mary and Raul

“Beautiful, simple, warm, reverent, intimate…everything we had hoped for.  Susan and James at Carolina Bed and Breakfast provided the most perfect setting and atmosphere for our elopement. I wouldn’t have changed a single thing!” ~ Melanie and Anthony

 

CAN WE SUGGEST?

Even if you don’t see what you are looking for at the Carolina Bed & Breakfast there are two great wedding resources here in Asheville that you may want to consider.

The first is something special Asheville has to make planning your wedding so much easier:  StudioWed.  StudioWed is a free service to brides bringing Asheville Wedding Professionals directly to them.  No need to run all over town meeting with florists, caterers, etc.  Make an appointment at StudioWed and let the vendors come to you while you relax.  This concept was the brainchild of Nicole and Ian Riley, owners and operators of Verge Events.They have been wedding planners in Asheville since 2005 and personally vet every vendor who is invited to join the StudioWed group.

The second is a wonderful resource for every bride where ever she may be getting married: Studiowedbox.  Studiowedbox is a curated subscription box designed to help guide brides through the planning process with tips, samples, suggestions and gifts. You can sign up for a monthly, 6-months or 12-months subscription.  Your box is created for you and where you are in your wedding planning.

Whatever you choose to do, large wedding or small, in Asheville or elsewhere, we at the Carolina Bed & Breakfast send you our best wishes and good luck for your wedding and future!

 

 

 

Our Guests Say...

Breakfast was different both mornings, but equally good. I loved that they always had nuts, cookies or chocolate available to satisfy any cravings.

— Harry, Atlanta, GA

We’ll no longer look elsewhere for Asheville accommodations, and have already recommended it to others we know planning to visit the town in the near future.

— Todd & Cherryl Sullivan, Inianapolis, IN

A Note from Your Host…

It’s hard to believe but we are already thinking about the Fall!  Guests have started to book and weekends in September and October are going fast.  We are super excited about our Fall Farm and Artisan Tour!  The exclusive self-driving tour provides a perfect day trip to one of the most beautiful (and lesser known) valleys in the region.  Enjoy a picnic lunch at a North Carolina Vineyard followed by a wine tasting, tour farms and enjoy the produce of the region and visit the homes and galleries of some of our best artisans.  This includes a broom maker who still uses the old techniques to construct brooms of all types, including wedding brooms, as well as quilters, fiber optic artists and more.  Special discounts are being offered to guests who book this package.  You can find out more on our Specials Page.
