Travel and Accommodations

The weekend of the wedding should be absolutely beautiful (fingers crossed!). The average high for September 30th in Banner Elk is 74˚ and the average low is 54˚, so we’re hoping for that (and no rain!). Pack short sleeves for day, and a cozy sweater for night. But don’t worry if you forget your sweater, we’ll have plenty of bonfires and hot cocoa to keep you warm!
