If an intimate ceremony in the woods surrounded by old tall trees, thick ferns, climbing vines and the endless skies is your dream wedding; welcome to River North. Located just 20 minutes from downtown Asheville & 7 miles from the airport, our unique property offers both convenience and privacy alike.  The land is 10 acres of  family owned property with a private forest, a picturesque pond and walking trails.


With multiple site locations within the property, River North can accommodate micro weddings, elopements and intimate gatherings for up to 15 people.

            The Ruins

Location & Vibe:  This open air deck is situated above a natural running spring that feeds into our lush, overgrown pond in the spring and summer months. In the fall you will be surrounded by the bright oranges and reds that Western Carolina is known for. No matter the season, this unique structure gives the feeling of spending time in an abandoned "ruin" that the earth took back. Complete with moody lantern lighting, starlight ceiling twinkles & a stone fireplace; your guests will be talking about their night in the forest for years to come.
