  • The natural backdrops are stunning. This arboretum just 15 minutes from downtown Asheville encompasses 65 acres of meticulously cultivated gardens, bountiful flowerbeds, stone paths, and towering trees.
  • There are multiple indoor and outdoor facilities, allowing you to choreograph your day according to your vision. Options include the Heritage Garden, which features a lovely wooden gazebo and stone fireplace, and the Baker Exhibit Center, an airy, light-filled hall with an open-beam ceiling.
  • It's an environmentally conscious choice. The arboretum's Green Wedding Program provides green initiative guidelines to help couples design their event to minimize its impact and preserve the natural beauty of this North Carolina gem.
