We love autumn. Crisp air, red wine and beautiful colors. And, we love spending time outdoors—running (Carrie), cycling (Jonathan) and hiking (both of us). So, we're taking you up into the mountains of North Carolina to enjoy all of these things as we celebrate our wedding!
If you find yourselves in town Friday morning, please join us for an optional group hike to stunning views atop Whiteside Mountain. Meet in front of Old Edwards Inn (Main & 4th). A moderately challenging hike (2.5mi, 600' elevation gain), we suggest you bring a bottle of water, light snack, and closed toed/sturdy shoes (sneakers OK). We'll carpool, but please be prepared to drive as needed.

There are many cozy options in the small, nearby town of Highlands. We will provide transportation to events so we suggest you stay there. There is not a specific hotel block, so stay where you feel comfortable.
We suggest checking these out.
Draw a line between between Chicago and Savannah—and another between New York and New Orleans ... Legend has it this what founders, Samuel Truman Kelsey and Clinton Carter Hutchinson, did as they believed the intersection of these lines would become a great trading center and the future of commerce. While thankfully failing to live up to such stratospheric industrial prophecies, Highlands is nevertheless a geographic gem, uniquely located on a plateau in the southern Appalachian Mountains. Named for its lofty elevation at 4,118', Highlands was promoted for its fresh air and excellent potential for orchards and gardens.
We encourage you to explore the town's scenic backdrop and rustic charm.
