What is the best way to get to Banner Elk?
We recommend flying into Charlotte Douglas International Airport - it's a 2.5 hour drive to Banner Elk.
Guests can also fly into Asheville Regional Airport - it's a 2 hour drive to Banner Elk.
Is there transportation to and from the ceremony?
We will have a shuttle service to and from the celebration Saturday from both the Beech Mountain Vacation Rentals and a TBD location in downtown Banner Elk.
Are the ceremony and celebration inside or outside?
The ceremony will be outside on a grass meadow (so select shoes that work for grass!). Cocktail hour and the reception will be a mix of indoor and outdoor spaces, but the top of the mountain never gets above 80 degrees in the summer!
Are kids invited to the ceremony and celebration?
While we love your kids (we really do!), we have chosen for our vow renewal to be an adult-only occasion in order to better allow all our guests, including parents, an evening to unwind and relax. We are hopeful that this advance notice will allow you to still be able to be a part of our special day and enjoy having the evening off!
