Cherokee County Wedding Venues Offer Scenic Mountain Beauty and Rustic Charm

Screen Shot 2016-07-08 at 7.05.11 PMPlanning the perfect wedding is like organizing a bigger, fancier birthday party. For the wedding, you’ll probably have a longer guest list, along with more extravagant decorations and nicer party favors. And instead of a sheet cake from the supermarket’s bakery, you’ll spring for a three-tiered masterpiece from a specialty baker. Before you can make your wedding plans a reality, though, you must select a site for the festivities. Here in Cherokee County, choose from three scenic ceremony and/or reception locations, along with one vintage rustic venue right in downtown Murphy, NC.

Hawkesdene Estate (Andrews, NC)
First, check out the beautiful Hawkesdene Estate, located at 381 Phillips Creek Road in Andrews. Just a short drive from Murphy, this 36-acre private estate offers gorgeous gardens, fruit trees, pastures, woodlands, and nicely manicured grounds. Nearby nature trails lead to a cooling waterfall and to the Hawkesnest Pavilion, which offers sweeping views of the lush countryside.

If this sounds like a great wedding and reception location, the news gets even better. Whether you want a small, low-key wedding or a grand affair with all the bells and whistles, the Hawkesdene Estate wedding coordinator will gladly honor your wishes.

First, you’ll have exclusive use of the estate on that memorable day. Choose from indoor venues including the main house, cottages, covered bridge, or llama barn. Outdoors, hold the festivities at the open air pavilion, arbor, lawns, or gardens. If you like, switch your onsite ceremony location on your wedding day. In other words, Hawkesdene Estate is a terrific wedding venue, regardless of the weather or season.

McGuire’s Millrace Farm (Murphy, NC)
Next, head over to historic McGuire’s Millrace Farm at 600 Hendrix Road in the Peachtree community. This late 1800s-era farm, nestled among lush green fields and surrounded by dramatic mountains, offers several appealing wedding venues.

For your ceremony, consider the arched foot bridge within the gardens or gather among the sweeping river birches. Or, maybe you’d prefer the scenic arbor backed by rolling pastures and mountains. If you encounter some last-minute bad weather, you can move the entire wedding indoors at no extra cost.

And speaking of indoor venues, McGuire’s Millrace Farm sets the standard for elegant rustic barn weddings. The farm’s 6,600-square-foot barn has polished concrete floors, high ceilings with wrought-iron chandeliers, and nicely built hardwood tables and chairs. For your wedding décor, select antique furnishings such as vintage church pews, oak whiskey barrels, and many more historic accent pieces.

Regardless of your venue choice, you’ll have exclusive use of the farm on your special day. For your reception, the farm’s award-winning chef can prepare a tasty Southern barbeque or produce a lavish five-course dinner – it’s your choice. Finally, your dedicated Event Planner will help you execute the entire event, leaving you free to celebrate the occasion with your guests.

Hackney Warehouse (Murphy, NC)
This downtown Murphy venue is easy to find, as it’s next to the L&N Depot on Hiwassee Street (although the Warehouse’s official address is 11 Railroad Street). Built in 1911, this expansive brick building has been fully renovated, and is available for weddings and receptions.

The Hackney Warehouse features more than 4,000 square feet of indoor space and 3,200 square feet of courtyard space. With a fully equipped kitchen, reclaimed timber banquet tables, and performance stages, this rustic-themed venue is a popular wedding reception choice. Two Certified Wedding Planners and two Certified Venue Professionals are onsite, helping you to plan and execute your dream wedding.

Payne Meadows (west of Murphy, NC)
Just a short drive from Murphy on US Highway 64 (also called the four-lane), you’ll find Payne Meadows, 38 acres of hilly pasture land that sits alongside a briskly running stream. Ideal for rustic barn weddings and destination weddings, this popular venue offers three distinctive event packages, each with a few more perks.

Payne Meadows’ basic Package 1 includes single-day use of the farmhouse, barn, fields, and creek, with an onsite reception. Package 2 includes all Package 1 amenities, along with lodging on the night before and night after the wedding, plus an onsite reception. Package 3 includes use of the above spaces for two full days: the full day of the wedding and an additional full day before or after the big event, plus two nights of lodging and an onsite reception. Visit the venue’s website for complete details and pricing information.

With several appealing wedding ceremony and reception venues, all convenient to Murphy, NC, you might enjoy the selection process almost as much as the actual event. So grab your camera and notepad, and kick-start your wedding plans today.

Experience Our Famous New Year’s Eve Possum Drop This Year in Brasstown NC

Possum-300x200if you always get a thrill when that glittery ball drops on New Year’s Eve – but you have no intention of heading to Times Square – join us for the mountain version of that memorable occasion. On Thursday, December 31, 2015, quiet little Brasstown, North Carolina (several miles from Murphy, NC) will host its 22nd Annual New Year’s Eve Possum Drop. This nationally famous event kicks off around 9:30 p.m., when several hundred to thousand hardy revelers gather at the Clay’s Corner station, right next to the John C. Campbell Folk School. This family-friendly evening is alcohol free, so bring the kids to enjoy it, too!

The festivities begin with toe-tapping bluegrass from the Barker Brothers, followed by Larry Witcher’s classic “Eulogy to a Possum” that always stirs the crowd’s emotions. Shortly after 10 p.m., the Guest of Honor arrives with considerable fanfare. As the lucky possum reclines in comfort, he enjoys a gospel music tribute and the much-anticipated Possum Idol Sing-Off.

Next, the Miss Possum Contest takes center stage. If you’re expecting a typical beauty pageant, where lovely young ladies glide across the stage in gorgeous evening gowns, you’re barking up the wrong tree. Instead, you’ll see several lumberjack types who likely drove their pickup trucks to the event – except they’re all decked out in frills and glitter. Believe it or not, they’re all competing for the coveted “Miss Possum” crown. This event defies description – you just have to see it in person. After the whoops and hollers die down, enjoy a “Tribute to Our Service Men and Women,” quite appropriate for this highly patriotic region.

As midnight approaches, excitement builds for the big Possum Drop. This year, station owner Clay Logan plans to lower a live opossum, who views all the hoopla from his cozy decorated Plexiglas box. In contrast, Logan was compelled to use a fake possum during the 2014 event, after an animal rights group’s legal action blocked him from using a live animal. However, this year the North Carolina General Assembly passed legislation that brought a real possum back into the picture. The animal rights group challenged the new law, but a North Carolina Superior Court Judge ruled in the possum’s favor.

Now, you might be wondering about the possum’s pre-event accommodations. Because this sluggish marsupial is the main attraction, Clay Logan ensures that his newfound friend gets the star treatment for several days before the show. Mr. Possum gets a nice comfy bed and tasty meals, and he doesn’t have to worry about becoming a Murphy, NC area traffic statistic. In other words, the possum lives high on the hog. And just in case you wonder, we support the use of the opossum! It gets the red carpet treatment making it the luckiest possum possible.

Finally, the clock strikes the midnight hour, and Clay Logan happily lowers his possum to welcome the New Year. The crowd erupts into roars and applause, and there are lots of hugs and kisses to go around. Brilliant fireworks fill the Brasstown, NC sky, and another Possum Drop goes into the record books.
