Eloping to the Mountains

Does anyone have any recommendations for bed and breakfasts or lodges in the Blue Ridge or Smokey Mountains?

I've been researching and I found a package that includes 2 nights, officiant, and a damn good photographer for $1000 BUT none of the mountain ranges are actually in view! I want to get married with the mountains behind me :/

 Nice!!!! Unfortunately I don't know the area so I'm no help, but I loved getting married in the mountains!

I'm actually in the middle of planning a 2 week road trip through the Rockies to Vancouver with DH and our boys.

I look forward to seeing your plans for your day - is it just going to be the two of you or is a group going with you?

 Nope, just the two of us! I've attempted planning a full-on wedding 3 separate times. I give up. It's too stressful w/ the kids, work FT, and school. So I told him we're doing it alone :) My mom is taking our children to Germany next summer so we thought it would be the perfect opportunity bc theyll be gone for two weeks.

Have you tried Above the Mist Weddngs? I don't know anyone who has used them, but they have some pretty mountain views in their pictures.

Actually, after looking at a few options, I would seriously consider Flower Mountain Weddings. Their mountain views are gorgeous, and their photography is way better than what I'm seeing on most of the other websites in the area.

 The photography is what I've been worried about. A lot include it in their packages, but it's so lacking in quality. Laura, I'll definitely check out Flower Mountain because that photo is amazing! I did look at Above the Mist as well.

I have been to Smoky mountains a few times and most of the times there is a haze, that's why I guess they call it smoky mountains and that will show up in your pictures but otherwise it's amazing and flower mountain does sound great!

 if you find a great b and b or hotel that advertises wedding packages they may have a recommendation for a photographer in the area.
