If you are looking for a dreamy mountain wedding venue, you’re definitely looking in the right
place. As a wedding photographer, I have seen many mountain wedding venues, but the
Overlook Barn wedding venue is one of the dreamiest I’ve seen so far. Keep reading to find
out more about this spectacular location!
About the Overlook Barn Wedding Venue
Overlook Barn wedding venue sits on top of Beech Mountain. This stunning location offers
breathtaking views of the Blue Ridge Mountains, which provides the perfect backdrop for your
ceremony or reception. This wedding venue is 6,500 square feet and rests on a multiple-acre
meadow adjacent to the barn.
Owner Katie & David got engaged in 2014 and searched for a wedding venue that highlighted
the beauty of North Carolina and didn’t have to look very far once seeing Overlook Barn. Katie’s
grandfather built this barn surrounded by meadows and forest on Beech Mountain in the 1960s,
and Katie and David purchased it from Katie’s uncle and worked to build the venue they
imagined for their special day. Since then, the couple has worked tirelessly to give other couples
the same dreamy day.
