Welcome to Your Wedding Sanctuary at Bliss

Your Wedding Sanctuary

A sanctum nestled deep within the Blue Ridge and Hot Springs, North Carolina, Wheel of Bliss offers a picturesque escape into hundreds of acres of pristine National Forest.

Take your vows amid a large outdoor garden and forested canopy. Dine within The Celestial Hall, a 950 sq. ft. Scandinavian-style longhouse fit for a feast. Then, retire in comfort at The Bliss House, a private 16-bed, 5.5-bath cabin with a jacuzzi and sauna.

More than your average wedding retreat venue, we welcome you to a sacred space filled with energy and wonder.

Privacy and Sacredness in the North Carolina Mountains

A wedding space should be as sacred as the vows you take.

After hosting countless spiritual retreats, the energy of spiritual transformation is tangible at Bliss. Many describe stepping onto the land like walking through a portal to a different world. A great many have had life-changing spiritual experiences that they have taken back into their communities.

Weddings are known for their liveliness and fun, but there is also a deep, mystical dimension to marriage and weddings. In a brief window of time, a connection is made that changes both of your lives forever. For those who exchange sacred vows on our land, our intent is that your commitment is sealed by divinity; and that you take this blessing with you for the rest of your lives.

For future spouses looking for a private setting in nature, Wheel Of Bliss is your slice of heaven. Far removed from the hustle and bustle of the city, our retreat space is enveloped in the natural world. The spiritual dimensions of the land are reflected by physical beauty.

Explore the grounds of Bliss with your wedding party: hike 5 different trails, swim in freshwater streams, and set your eyes upon breathtaking views. 

In addition, our 63 acres of land offers unique natural experiences you can enjoy with your group, such as nearby streams, waterfalls, and gorgeous mountain vistas.

If you’re looking for a wedding retreat venue close to nature, reach out to us today.

What Our Guests Think
About Wheel of Bliss


My wife and I gathered my family here for Thanksgiving, and to renew our wedding vows. This location was perfect for our needs. It is in a beautiful, secluded area, about 30 minutes from the nearest town. There is a caretaker on site that was able to help us when we had more specific questions about the house and the local area. The host was also reachable via the app for the duration of the stay. We had a wonderful time, and would definitely recommend this to anyone looking to get away from it all.



My husband and I had our (small and intimate, family only) wedding ceremony here and it was BEAUTIFUL! We absolutely LOVED this listing, everything about it! From the location of the house, to the landscape and the cleanliness of the house and friendliness of the host, our entire group fell in love with this home and trip.



This place is a sacred space beyond our expectations. If you are truly needing a getaway from the busy world and needing to reconnect with yourself or your family, this is it. The communication and quick responses made this easy on us while planning an impromptu wedding ceremony with our close family and friends.
