the Bridal Cabin
This mountain venue is serene and makes time seem to move more slowly. Most of us live most of our lives traveling to and from work,waiting in traffic, communicating on digital devices, and moving hundred miles an hour while at work only to get home, eat, go to bed and do it again the next day. We live for the weekends, so we can relax, or possibly get away for short weekend vacation. In the mountains we can hike, fish, or just get away to think and slow down. We just need a little peace and quiet; a peaceful place to find ourselves and relax, enjoy life, laugh and have some fun.

The most important area of wedding planning is selecting a venue. For both parties to decide where and when they will tie the knot, it is essential to take time for careful consideration. Here is a look at why you ought to consider a mountain wedding venue.
Are mountain wedding venues good for a large group of guests?
Each mountain wedding venue NC has to offer is different. Rest assured that Double R Wedding Vows & Events takes care to plan for effective timing, travel, lodging, dining, cake design, photography and of course the ceremony itself. In-house wedding services are available, though we often work with third parties at a couple’s request.
We can also help you design creative mountain wedding invitations. These can inspire guests to take photos as they arrive, to truly capture the beauty of a wedding in the mountains. Wi-Fi is available onsite. We can accommodate couples’ requests for a no-mobile-device policy if they wish (to ensure all photo and video work is handled by hired pros, rather than guests distracting other guests during the ceremony).
The 20 acres of Nantahala Forest, which ranges up to a mile high in elevation, is home to some of America’s finest mountain vistas. The natural beauty is breathtaking to NC residents who see it every day; just imagine the smiles of guests when they arrive to your mountain wedding ceremony. Our location in Hayesville is just a few hours by drive from Atlanta, Charlotte, Columbia or Knoxville, which means that guests from all over the world can fly in and enjoy a scenic road trip on the way to a pristine mountain wedding chapel.
Ceremonies can be held at various times of the year. Some mountain wedding events take place on sunny summer afternoons, and others are planned for wedding the happy couple under a clear sky full of stars. The reservation is safe for all travelers. Guests are welcome to explore the magnificent Nantahala Forest and its rhododendrons, trails, creeks and forest, though guests are asked to respect and preserve the natural beauty during their visit.
Our staff is experienced in setting up, breaking down and cleaning up weddings and other events. We work hard so the bride, the groom and their guests can stay relaxed. Because the area is designed to let guests enjoy nature, parking is limited. Please speak with our team about special accommodations for handicapped guests, as we do our best to accommodate everyone you invite.
How much do mountain wedding services and packages cost?
Each wedding cost is unique. Double R recommends getting in touch with a member of our team to talk specifics and arrange a wedding experience that fits your budget.
Dining packages include dinner for up to 75 guests. The mountain wedding chapel on site has seating for 75, with room for the wedding party, photographers and other service personnel to move around in comfort.
Lodging on site is available for up to 20 overnight guests. The nearby town of Franklin has lodging available for additional overnight guests. Accommodations for infants and small children should be discussed when booking your wedding. We can work with you to arrange plans for infants or especially active kids so they do not disrupt the ceremony.
Photography costs for your mountain wedding can range from a free gift offered to the happy couple to several thousand dollars. Be sure to plan ahead for photos and videos of your nuptials. Aerial photography with a drone can be an exciting component of capturing your wedding day, but please speak with our team before making plans to use them. We encourage photographers to set up any tripods or special equipment during rehearsal, rather than waiting until just before the ceremony itself or making adjustments that may interrupt the ceremony.
We provide various menus for weddings and other events at Double R. Most of our offerings draw from local specialties and favorites, with an emphasis on home-cooked country goodness. From barbeque to country boil, our meals are made with love. Special dining considerations can be made upon request. You may also provide your own food or hire a third party caterer to handle dining for your wedding, with owner approval.
Similarly, we can work with the couple to serve a perfect mountain wedding cake. If you have your own idea in mind, please let us know ahead of time and we will accommodate the cake service as best we can. Alcohol may be served in designated areas, and glass bottles must remain in those areas. Depending on the size of your guest list and alcohol serving options, additional deposits may be required.
Special pricing is offered on occasion through our social media profiles. Be sure to connect with Double R on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest or Twitter. Each of these profiles has photo galleries that will give you an idea of just how beautiful a mountain wedding venue and chapel would be for your big day!
