Hidden in the Blue Ridge Mountains and surrounded by 38,000 acres of the Pisgah National Forest, Brown Mountain Beach Resort is a historic family-owned retreat nestled alongside Wilson Creek established in the early 1900s. Pack your swimsuits, wear your hiking shoes, & fishermen bring your gear, as the area boasts some of the best trout fishing in the U.S.! With something to do for just about everyone, we hope you’ll enjoy staying with us for a long weekend celebration.

Travel

AIRPORT INFORMATION

The closest major airport is Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT) – approximately 1 hour southeast of Brown Mountain Beach Resort & Morganton.

As an alternative, you may also fly into Asheville Regional Airport (AVL) – approximately 1.5 hrs southwest of Brown Mountain Beach Resort & Morganton.

GETTING AROUND

While taxis/uber/lyft are available for transfer from the major airports to Morganton, we recommend renting a car so you can join us at your leisure throughout the weekend, & explore the beautiful towns of the Blue Ridge Mountains on your own!

Transportation to and from the wedding ceremony & reception will be provided. Ample (free) parking is available at Brown Mountain Beach Resort throughout the weekend.

Accommodations

For your convenience, two blocks of rooms have been reserved at nearby hotels in Morganton.  August is already proving busy, so we recommend early booking!

Fairfield Inn & Suites

Located in the heard of Morganton’s historic district, this is our recommended option. Please reserve by July 27 to receive the group rate.

Hampton Inn

A second block is available a bit further from the town’s main attractions, though still within easy driving distance. Please reserve by August 11 to receive the group rate.

Local Info

HISTORIC MORGANTON

The national historic district in which our hotel blocks are located has a wealth of restaurants, breweries, & green space for you to explore!  Recommendations include:

Beautiful Blowing Rock

Known as the “Crown of the Blue Ridge” & one of the only towns situated directly on the famous Blue Ridge Parkway, Blowing Rock offers visitors sweeping vistas & storybook village charm. You can find unique local shopping, restaurants, & live music: 

Extra credit to any guest who witnesses  the famous paranormal (perhaps…extraterrestrial?) Brown Mountain Lights! Local legend dates sightings back as early as the 1770s. Many have investigated…NONE have explained. They have even played a starring role on an episode of The X-Files!

Our Story

2003-2007

...THE ANCIENT HISTORY

THE REUNION

08.25.2012

Brianna had been living in Los Angeles since high school; Graham in Kansas City. Both back in town for their high school reunion, they were forced into conversation as the uncomfortable "others" amongst talking friends. Graham followed Brianna the rest of the night. It was $5 all you can drink. It was Beer Can Alley. Graham was moving to Germany in a week; Brianna was headed back to LA. Surely nothing would come of this.

YOU IN TOWN?

The First Date

06.13.2013

A few months pass & Graham heads down to Big Sur from SF, Brianna up from LA. On their individual drives to meet, it strikes them both that three days alone in the woods is not the most well thought out idea for a first date (was this a date?) Well, this could be awkward. Spoiler: it wasn’t. Congratulations, both pass go & collect $200. They make plans for another camping trip.

01.2014

It's Official.

THE PROPOSAL

07.07.2020

In the height of a pandemic that was in nobody's plans, Graham wasn't waiting any longer! With a redwood ring box he made long ago from a piece he snagged on an early camping trip, he took Brianna back to the scene of the crime, that first "date", casually suggesting it might be a nice night for a beach picnic...in a 30mph sandstorm. Forgetting the decoy food in the car, he popped the question & she said yes!

Registry

We know the effort it takes to travel so far and spend so much time with us – your presence, love, & support  is our gift!  So,  please no gifts or cash of any kind.
