bride and groom celebrate during a grove park inn wedding ceremony on the sunset terrace

Timeless, elegant, stunning but it has to have a good view? The Omni Grove Park Inn, is one of the first things that comes to mind to this Asheville wedding photographer.  Moody tones and vibes meet one of the best sunset views in Asheville, NC. The Omni Grove Park Inn is one of the most sought after wedding venues in Asheville, NC and for good reason.

Surrounded by more than a century of historic mystique and grandeur, this legendary property features many distinctive wedding venues, including outdoor terraces with majestic views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. 


Breathtaking scenery, endless outdoor activities, and fresh mountain air — not much compares to the mountains of Western North Carolina. You can find a range of event spaces from luxury ballrooms to charming, outdoor venues that offer spaces with a view for your ceremony and reception.

Whether indoor or outdoor, your venue can be transformed to fit your wedding style especially at the Grove Park Inn. Here you can choose a classic wedding style with the valley of Asheville and Blue Ridge Parkway as your backdrop in every photo if you wanted. You can also enjoy the fall colors as your backdrop with a wedding held at the outdoor venue of the Seely Pavilion surrounded by greenery and the grandeur of Asheville’s natural beauty.

Whether the Blue Ridge Mountains have always held your heart or you’re searching anywhere for the perfect scenic mountain spot, the Grove Park Inn is your mountain view wedding venue.

The Omni Grove Park Inn is know for its top shelf cuisine and legendary service.  One thing that stands out is that ALL of the food served at weddings and in the restaurants is locally-sourced. It is also know for its luxurious spa. A world-class, 43,000 sq. ft. spa and an 18-hole Donald Ross-designed golf course.

The Omni Grove Park Inn has four ceremony venues that will make any wedding photographer happy on wedding day. The Sunset Terrace, the Vanderbilt Terrace, the Seely Pavilion and the Omni Grove Park Inn Country Club and Golf Course.

All of this is the perfect recipe for a small destination wedding or several days of wedding events for a big group at the Omni Grove Park Inn.

Views from every wedding venue

As a preferred wedding vendor at the Grove Park, I can tell you that one of the most requested items in the wedding planning, is the views which are absolutely beautiful. The Omni Grove Park Inn can meet those wedding requests for a breathtaking backdrop. The sunset terrace, the seely pavilion, the vanderbilt terrace, and the Grove Park Inn country club are all wedding venues at the Grove Park Inn. Make sure speak with the Omni Grove Park Inn about your guest rooms too. Having a view of the ceremony space from your or a family members guest room, could be great for your beautiful wedding day photos.

The sweeping views that are present at the Omni Grove Park Inn can be seen from any spot on the property. One of my favorite things to do with wedding couples is to take them around the property, so that the photos that we capture, really capture the vibe of the Grove Park Inn.

Here Comes the Guide describes it as:

  • Set amidst the Blue Ridge Mountains, this luxury hotel offers relaxed elegance. From intimate gatherings to grand galas, the majestic scenery and nearby Asheville’s lively scene make it a great wedding destination.

  • Take your ceremony to new heights with sweeping vistas from the Mountain View Terrace. Or, check out Seely Pavilion, which boasts exposed trusses and a huge stone hearth, as well as great views of the rugged peaks and the lush golf course.

Grove Park Inn Wedding - Sunset Terrace

The Sunset Terrace at the Omni Grove Park Inn is one of my favorite wedding venues in Asheville. One of the perks of being an Asheville wedding photographer, is that you always have a breathtaking backdrop for your weddings. Many times you take personal photos from these locations too. This Grove Park Inn wedding venue, the Sunset Terrace, offers one of the best views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The ceremony area is surrounded by natural stone, with a large outdoor fireplace for any late fall Grove Park Inn Wedding.


Playing golf while attending a wedding seems to always go hand in hand for many. While attending a wedding at the Grove Park Inn, many times guests will play a round the morning of the wedding ceremony. I for one as an Asheville wedding photographer, I hope to be the photographer along for those rounds! I love to play this course!

For a wedding at the Grove Park Inn, the Omni Grove Park golf course is also a breathtaking backdrop. You have the tall towers of Downtown Asheville popping above the tree line, with a full 270 degree view of the mountains that surround Asheville. The courtyard of the house is elegant, and also gives off a timeless feel. Some of my best wedding photographer photos have been taken here. The inside wedding reception area is intimate, but also provides an great wooden dance floor!.
