2021: The year for Elopements

2021: The year for Elopements

Yes, we are blogging about elopements….again. Why do you ask? When the coronavirus pandemic hit last year, large gatherings were put on hold indefinitely, throwing many couples’ wedding plans up in the air. Couples had to make some tough and emotional decisions: postpone their dream wedding indefinitely, have a small ceremony now and do a party down the road (who knows when), or scrap their original vision altogether. As a result, elopement has become one of the most popular wedding trends of 2021.  

We are starting to see more couples plan small affairs or elopements at the onset, rather than dealing with the potential headache and expense of downsizing due to COVID-19 later. In addition, the wedding industry has been undergoing some big changes in the past 10 years. Over-the-top weddings may not be the norm for much longer. A more simplified approach is a safe and affordable option. If you and your partner are one of these couples, we have a great deal for you!

Wednesday Elopement Special

We are making it easy to plan a mountain elopement with our tried and true vendors. The package includes personal flowers for the couple, created by Hidden River’s own florist and locally grown flowers. A quality photographer will capture the event for posterity—also, accommodations in the lovely Quartz Mountain House. For more information, go to the specials section of our website: Asheville Wedding Packages (hiddenriverevents.com).


Vow Renewals
We Specialize in All-Inclusive

At first, we thought all-inclusive meant just having all the infrastructure ready to go for the couple, so what looks like such a simply beautiful, largely outdoor wedding could be as clean and simple as the lines of the tent.  There should be no hassles about getting in all the infrastructure and having it ready for your wedding. We did not want to witness a rental truck showing up at the last minute and a mom or bridesmaid, or the couple themselves, setting up chairs and tables–even mowing the yard–on the morning of the wedding.  These were all things Jeanne witnessed repeatedly over the years. No wonder people were exhausted before their wedding even began…
