It’s Springtime in the Smoky Mountains and love is in the air.  We have already had some beautiful mountain weddings this spring and are looking forward to many more.  Spring boasts many different scenarios for wedding backdrops. In March it could be snowing, while the next weekend could be sunny and 70 degrees.  Many brides have chosen Laurel Ridge Country Club for their wedding ceremony and reception for this very reason, diversity.

In recent years, we have become one of the premiere destination wedding venues in Western North Carolina and the Great Smoky Mountains because of the high level of satisfaction our wedding parties share.   Our clientele travel to Laurel Ridge from all over the country, including Florida, Massachusetts and even the Midwest.  Brides and grooms that want to have a destination wedding know they can find the perfect venue in Western NC.  Mountain weddings at Laurel Ridge Country Club are truly beautiful in all seasons.

One thing that brides have complimented us on is that our facility has a wide range of event spaces that all showcase our gorgeous vistas. Whether they are looking for an outdoor wedding venue or a reception venue inside our rustic-chic clubhouse, couples find something they can agree on at Laurel Ridge.  As an added benefit, our panoramic mountain landscapes create an incomparable setting for memorable portraits to last a lifetime.

Western North Carolina mountain weddings are becoming very popular for couples who want to travel and experience the beauty of the region.  We are excited to have such a unique wedding ceremony and reception venue to offer couples that are looking for the perfect mountain wedding.

Easter Bunny Visits Laurel Ridge Country Club

053Don’t let anyone tell you there is no such thing as the Easter Bunny!  We know he exists because he spent the afternoon at LRCC’s special Holiday Brunch on Easter Sunday!  He even joined in on the Egg Hunt at 1 pm and took pictures with the kids all dressed in their Sunday best. 

Three-year old Will Clark was visiting his Grandmother from Rock Hill, SC and took home the Grand Prize after finding the Golden Egg.  Congratulations to Will and thanks to all the youth, parents and grandparents for a great time!

I am writing to compliment the club and staff for an absolutely outstanding event today! In total, we had 21 people at the class. Setting the early morning coffee and tea was fantastic, as were the mid-afternoon cookies! Lunch with the pre-printed limited menu selections went off like clockwork and the signage was an unexpected treat. Our server did an excellent job also. It went so well, that I have been asked to work on setting up another, and once I catch my breath I will do that.

Again, kudo’s, thanks and much appreciation to everyone who had anything to do with this event. LRCC made a lot of new friends today!
