|North Carolina offers breathtaking Wedding Locations and Wedding Photos|
On the west side of the state, North Carolina has some of the prettiest mountains, and oldest mountains in the world. Rolling vistas, mountain streams and the occasional waterfall all await the visitor of Western North Carolina. The largest of the cities in the area, and the one with the most places to get married, is Asheville. Asheville is Western North Carolina's little big city, or big little city depending on where you come from. Asheville offers a large selection of great restaurants and bars, as well as museums and conference centers. Whatever type of wedding venue you have in mind, Asheville and Western North Carolina can provide it.
Outside of Asheville there are a handful of cute, but resourceful towns. Starting to the south is the Biltmore Estate. The Biltmore Estate is home to many, many weddings every year. Because there are some many different places on the grounds to get married, they can host quite a few at the same time, but have the weddings never really see each other. The Biltmore Estate is quite possibly North Carolina's most famous and most beautiful estate to get married at. There is a North Carolina Wedding Photographer (www.bluebendphotography.com) that has photographed quite a few weddings there and has a great collection of photos at this link: Biltmore WeddingPhotos.
Western North Carolina also has many little towns tucked away in the mountains that offer amazing spots for a wedding. Some of the more famous towns in Western North Carolina are: Hendersonville, Waynesville, Candler, Bryson City, Cashiers, Highlands and Brevard.

Two hours to the east of Asheville in North Carolina is what is referred to as the Piedmont. The landscape changes drastically into slow rolling hills with the mountains of Western North Carolina in the distance. The temperature goes up about 10 degree and the vegetation changes. This is the area of North Carolina that much of the state's grapes for wine is grown (Vineyards make great spots for wedding ceremonies and wedding receptions). Cities such as Statesville, Charlotte, Mooresville and Concord are some of the bigger cities in North Carolina's Piedmont. This is another very established area of the state and offers endless options for your wedding ceremony and wedding reception.
East of i74, North Carolina gets much bigger north to south. The state dips down south on the coast to Wilmington (another great spot for a wedding - beach weddings are GREAT!) and follows the coast up along the "Outer Banks".
The Outer Banks is possibly North Carolina's most famous area for BeachWeddings. They are a long string of islands with the most famous string toward the top of the state around Nags Head. This whole area of North Carolina, no matter what island you're on, offers amazing areas and spots for wedding ceremonies and wedding receptions. The wedding photos that couples walk away with from North Carolina Beach Weddings are equally as beautiful as the mountain wedding photos from Western North Carolina.
