We are enjoying our new locations at 33 Pigeon Street - what a wonderful piece of history that this little cottage has, coupled with its amazing charm and ideal location we hope to become a sought after wedding business and a wonderful addition to the community as a whole. Currently we are planning additional landscaping around the cottage with new hardwood in the flower beds, additional plants and colorful foliage along with developing the back courtyard with an elegant white arbor, a water feature at some point, edison string lighting running from the ridge of the porch to the fencing with the overall goal of making it as romantic as possible for couples traveling to the area that want to elope but are looking for something other than the courthouse experience. DESTINATION ELOPEMENTS WNC has been partnering with other venues in WNC giving couples plenty of choices when shopping for that perfect location to say 'I DO.' We are also partnering with Leap Frog Tours offering couples the opportunity to book a van for the day and customize a full day of activities which could include a beer tour, art tour, dinner or spa plans but will also include the elopement itself. We are thankful to Pam Smith for giving us the opportunity to rent this space and we look forward to being here for the duration that is allotted. She is so charming herself and has done a wonderful job updating the interior and exterior of this property we just want to continue the process of making it AMAZING. Our Motto is: Simple, Beautiful, I Do's. Wedding Officiate Services, Venue Consulting, and Pre-martial Counseling Owner and Lead Officiate Katrina Evans Also, Events Manager for Majors Estate.
