Moody Sky Retreat Wedding in Purlear, NC | Mary and Chris

January 20, 2020
Any Sky Retreat wedding is going to automatically become a favorite in my book. Every single wedding there is picturesque with those sweeping mountain views, open green field, and modern reception space. Every sky retreat wedding has it’s own mountain charm and after working a handful of weddings here, I can’t believe the creativity every couple comes up with to make it their own.
Mary and Chris are from Raleigh, NC, but their heart was always in the Blue Ridge Mountains. They both have spent a ton of time in the Blue Ridge, and exploring mountain towns all around the NC mountains and out west. When I asked them why they had chose the Sky Retreat as their wedding venue, it’s no surprise that they said it was because of the spectacular mountain views.
A Sky Retreat wedding is first and foremost iconically known for their beautiful mountain views. Rain, snow, fog, and mist is no issue for this amazing venue either. They also have an awesome weather backup plan that’s out on the porch, like Mary and Chris’s wedding.
If you are familiar with Boone, NC then you know the weather in the Blue Ridge can never make up it’s mind. One minute it’s down pouring, and the next the sky opens up and the sun shines brightly through the clouds. On the morning of Mary and Chris’s wedding, it was bright and sunny with only a few clouds dotted in the sky. But by the afternoon, we couldn’t see a single mountain in the distance. Then during the reception, just in time for sunset, the clouds decided to part for a quick 5 minutes so we could do a special champagne toast!
Any Sky Retreat wedding, regardless of the season or time of year, is spectacular and if you have the chance to get married here you’re one lucky duck. Their books fill up quickly for peak wedding season though (hint, it’s typically between August and October!) so make sure you reach out ASAP! I promise you won’t regret it.
