We got married at Something Blue on 10/27/2022 and Lisa went above and beyond anything we could ever ask for! The backdrop of the mountains were stunning and Lisa made sure to add special little personal touches all over the venue. Lisa was always quick to answer any question filled emails I sent over to her and provided detailed and thoughtful responses. I would recommend Something Blue to anyone! Lisa truly did make our special day even more special.

We had the very best experience for our wedding day on May 12th, 2022! We had an elopement/intimate ceremony & reception with only 9 guests. Lisa was absolutely wonderful from the very first day we spoke with her in May of 2021. As soon as we toured the venue and spoke with Lisa in May ‘21, we knew it was where we wanted to get married! (& we toured a lot of places) Lisa was very helpful in answering all of our questions and let us come back a few months before the wedding to see the venue again. On the wedding day, I felt like I didn’t have to worry about a thing. Lisa was there to help some family members set up the decor, etc. and was extremely accommodating! The most important part for us was that she let our dog be a part of our day! Not only did she let him be there but she was accommodating in everything we wanted to do with him, including having him walk down the isle and sign our marriage license. Lisa and her husband even offered to walk around our dog for us while we ate dinner! …and THE VIEWS!! It’s all anyone could talk about. I don’t think you could beat the views no matter what month you choose to have you’re wedding. We just cannot say enough good things about the venue!!

We had the absolute BEST experience at Something Blue for our wedding. Lisa and her husband were so accommodating and made us so comfortable with just the two of us on our wedding day. Their venue is so gorgeous and private and we are so grateful to have picked them. I highly recommend booking with them for an elopement/wedding. They are truly the sweetest people and had the most beautiful setup for us. It was amazing!

We chose to elope, and you should too - elope to Something Blue Mountain Venue. It’s exceptionally beautiful and romantic. Lisa and her husband are very professional, warm, and welcoming - they went above and beyond for my partner and me (with Lisa even going so far as to move my wife’s train for every single picture). The handcrafted ceremony was exactly what we hoped for, the views were incredible, and Lisa and her husband truly what made our day remarkable. Wish we could do it all over again!

I highly recommend working with Lisa! My husband and I eloped at Something Blue Wedding venue and I am so glad we did. It was absolutely breathtaking in the fall at sunset. Lisa was focused and detailed during the planning phase (I reached out 2 weeks prior). She and her husband took care of everything the day off the wedding and the duo performed the most beautiful ceremony, and had everything packed up and ready for us to go when it was time to leave. Love love loved getting married here!
Get a closer look at Pisgah National Forest, the 360° Blue Ridge Mountain views and enjoy watching song birds, butterflies, rabbits, hawks and whatever else Mother Nature has in store for you while you breathe in the mountain air. If you are lucky, maybe the train will blow through the mountains while you are here
