Hot Air Balloon Wedding

Get Married Up in the Air!

March 13, 2021

Pretty much EVERYTHING has changed since last year.  And weddings are not immune!  Many couples have had to whittle down their guest list and come up with some outside the box ideas.  Here are a few ideas for marrying in nontraditional wedding venues from an Airbnb to an Alpaca Farm – so much fun!

We have one more idea for you.  Why not get married up in the air in a hot air balloon?  The Foundry Hotel in Asheville, NC just launched a partnership with Asheville Hot Air Balloons to set the scene for an unforgettable marriage amidst the clouds. The “Get Married in a Hot Air Balloon Package” is the first of its kind and is completely customizable.  All the people necessary for your “minimony” will fit into one hot air balloon – from a full string quartet to friends and family. Families looking to celebrate the newly engaged couple immediately after can arrange a surprise celebration at the hotel once they land.

After the trip in the sky, be sure to visit The Foundry Hotel in Ashville.  Families looking to celebrate the newly engaged couple immediately after can arrange a surprise celebration at the hotel once they land.   It’s a beautiful facility and can really put the cap to any memorable day.
