Planning a High Country wedding? Don’t miss the Bridal Showcase at The Inn at Crestwood in Boone on Sunday, April 17.

From 1-4 p.m. on Sunday, enjoy the beautiful grounds, take in the sweeping mountain views and get to know some of the area’s premier wedding and special events vendors.

There is no cost for admission for brides and guests; so, say “I do” to this free sneak peek into dream weddings at one of the High Country’s most coveted venues.

“We really like hosting weddings here and we really sell ourselves, because we’ve got such an amazing view. We want to make sure that brides, whether they have chosen their event location or not, have the opportunity to come up here and mingle with people who like to work in the High Country,” said Crestwood Marketing Manager Emily Kimmel. “We want to showcase the beautiful views that we have so that people will be more inclined to come up here and have their weddings and events.”

Last year’s inaugural showcase at Crestwood fell on a perfect afternoon, drawing in a larger crowd than expected. This year, more than 80 couples and their guests will have a chance to meet and greet with more than 45 participating local vendors.

Those in attendance will enjoy samples from the on-site restaurant, The Table at Crestwood, and take a tour of the facility.

Local vendor Beth Zagst of Ugga Mugga Bakery, who attended last year’s inaugural showcase at Crestwood, looks forward to being part of the event for the second year in a row.

“It’s luxurious, and it’s perfect for a bride and groom to stroll the grounds, both inside and outside, and the different levels of Crestwood to meet vendors. It’s gorgeous, it’s beautiful, it’s fancy, it’s in the mountains and it has views,” said Zagst. “I booked a lot of weddings from my time there last year. It was a hugely successful showcase, and it was due in part to it being a really great place to house an expo.”

Zagst said participating vendors will benefit from meeting couples and their families who have dedicated their day to picking out the right professionals for their big day.

“It’s not a destination where they’re doing a lot of other things. They’re committing their day to driving there and picking out their vendors, so you get a lot of people who are ready to go, and the vendors get a lot more time with clients because of that,” she said. “I spent a lot more time with each couple last year, which was amazing for me. I like to get to know my clients, and the showcase at Crestwood really lends itself to that.

“They have done a very fantastic job planning it, getting ready for it, getting people on board and making sure it’s successful again.”

Whether you’ve selected your wedding venue or not, Crestwood invites all interested brides, family and friends to attend the showcase.
