About Nantahala Weddings & Events
***Use of facilities for 4 days, including 3 nights of lodging in Fie Top Suite (sleeps 6). No mandatory end time! No noise restrictions! Use ANY vendors! Pets allowed!*** We are a destination wedding venue with a focus on nature. The lake, mountains, river, and waterfalls provide a wide variety of activities for your guests – boating, swimming, whitewater rafting, hiking, and fishing – as well as spectacular wedding photo opportunities. Our goal is to make your experience as stress-free as possible so you can relax and enjoy the beauty of Nantahala with your family and friends. We only book one wedding per weekend, so you can set up, decorate, and rehearse the day before your wedding at the venue. Take it easy on the lake on your wedding day, then dance the night away. Come back the next morning to collect your belongings. Then go relax some more on the lake! The Venue Our venue has the serenity of a private park, so little decorating is needed to make it sparkle. We focus on simplicity by providing everything you need to seat and serve your guests in one low price.
