Sara & Ben’s beautiful High Hampton Inn wedding
The High Hampton Inn is about 5 minutes outside of downtown Cashiers (hour and a half west of Asheville on 64). The Inn and the grounds feel very much like the resort in Dirty Dancing. It looks and feels so much like that, they decided to use it for the new Dirty Dancing film they did this summer. There is golfing, bingo at night in the lobby, a lake for swimming and boating, and tons of other things for families to do. The views aren’t bad either :)
It is also an amazing place to have a wedding. The Inn also offers amazing grounds for an outdoor ceremony and free access to its huge property for photos. You don’t have to go far, though, for spectacular views. The ceremony location is just behind the main building and has one of the prettiest backdrops for a wedding ceremony you could ask for.
Within a short distance to Cashiers, there is a myriad of things to do – everything from whitewater rafting, hiking, antiquing to waterfalls and lots more. The town of Highlands is also just down the road. Anyone coming to the area and looking for tips, please feel free to call us and we can give you loads more ideas :)
Sara, Ben and their guests made the trip up from Athens, Georgia and were a delight to work with. They had a late afternoon wedding under a blue sky, cocktail hour outside at the pavilion and then dinner inside the pavilion. Dancing was back outside under a tent with a great evening breeze.
