Planning on getting married in Asheville, NC? Here's a list of my favorite Asheville wedding venues that would be PERFECT for any type of wedding you want to have!

Being a Wedding Photographer in Asheville I've shot at a lot of venues and these are my personal top picks for you!

Castle Ladyhawke

Castle Ladyhawke is a BEAUTIFUL Castle Wedding Venue in West Asheville and it is perfect for small-mid size weddings up to 150 guests. This is a three story, 10,000 sqft. Scottish style castle with stone walls, three private suites, a pub, and the iconic tower with an incredible mountain view. Everything about this venue from the inside out is amazing and it deserves to be on this list.

The second Castle Venue on this list is Homewood. This venue is located right in Downtown Asheville and is truly one of the most beautiful venues I've ever seen, the outside and inside both is jaw-dropping. This venue has an elegant 1920's vibe mixed with incredible options for all types of weddings. Homewood also provides tables, chairs, linen, china, silverware and glassware, and a lot more. I recommend this to any couple who wants a pure and elegant vibe from their wedding venue.

Smithmore Castle

Okay this is the last castle on this list, but it's a good one. Smithmore has by far one of the most incredible mountain views of any venue near Asheville. Located technically in Spruce Pine, it made this list because of the stunning history behind the venue, the views, and the amenities it offers. Not only is it the only 5 Star Castle Hotel in America, but it is ran by a world traveling award winning chef with an incredible staff making the wedding dinners here some of the best in the entire country. This is one of my favorite venues to photograph in all of North Carolina and is a venue I would recommend to everyone.

Peyton Helm Productions is a preferred vendor of Smithmore Castle.
