Glass Cabin Content Day in Asheville, NC

C & A Event Planning, Content Styling, Floral Design


After moving to Greenville SC I had to find my footing again in the wedding industry — I had to learn (quickly) about the market here, what types of venues were around and focus in on what types of weddings I wanted to take on. You see, weddings in Upstate New York are super popular within the months of May to October while in South Carolina the weather is so fair that you can essentially take on weddings every month of the year (with the exception of July and August because its incredibly hot — unless you prefer that).

I slowly started dabbling in content days as well (I had taken several years off from planning + participating in these). [A content day for wedding professionals is a dedicated day or period of time set aside to create and capture content for marketing, promotion, and showcasing their work. Wedding professionals, such as photographers, videographers, florists, planners, and other vendors, often engage in content days to build their portfolios, update their social media profiles, and create promotional materials.]

My first content day to host in the Upstate South Carolina/ Southwestern NC area was just outside of Asheville NC. Instead of focusing on wedding venues I knew I wanted something unique so I looked to Airbnb and I found this quaint little cabin secluded in the woods. The cabin is located in the Pisgah National Forest. Pisgah National Forest is a National Forest in the Appalachian Mountains of western North Carolina. It covers over 500,000 acres in the Appalachian Mountains of western North Carolina. It is easily accessible from cities like Asheville, Brevard, and Boone.

If you’ve been following the blog for any amount of time you know I’ve shared Airbnb wedding inspiration before (and if you haven’t – go here) — there are definitely a few extra steps to take if you want to opt in this direction but how cool is this spot for an elopement?!

Once I found this cabin, the vision started flowing – I didn’t know if I would have anyone to participate in the content day but I pushed forward. I ended up selling out all the spots I had available for this vision and so glad I brought this to life.

With content days I typically try to incorporate local wedding vendors to showcase their talents and expertise — enter Picnic Pop Up Avl. Picnic Pop Up Asheville creates dreamy popup picnics, luxury outdoor dining experiences, elopements and proposals. I also quickly connected with Queen Gowns. They offer unique bridal gowns. Boho couture bridal gowns for the modern and classic bride. As well as designer gowns at affordable prices.

If you’ve been a follower for awhile now, you know we’ve worked with Gina Tarbell previously for hair and makeup in New York but she moved to South Carolina 6 months before I did. It only made sense to incorporate her stunning work into this shoot to bring the day full circle. While hair and makeup isn’t Gina’s main focus anymore, she is an incredible Real Estate agent that has a passion for helping others navigate relocating to the Upstate region.

We did incorporate a few vendors from our New York years– Adirondack Ink — a mastermind behind so many gorgeous calligraphy designs we’ve had the pleasure of seeing first hand and Nicole Weeks Photography. Who just happens to be our personal wedding photographer and was in town to work on several projects. She showcased so much of the behind the scenes of this content day and I’m so thankful for her.

Without further-ado – here is the stunner of a content day, the glass cabin:
