JACKSON COUNTY, N.C. (FOX 46 CHARLOTTE) – You could win a dream wedding set at a scenic castle in Jackson County this fall.
The county’s tourism board is offering up the dream wedding, valued at $40,600, to one hard-working frontline employee and their fiancé whose wedding plans were negatively affected by COVID-19.
The wedding package will include a “fairytale” setting, catering, décor, entertainment and more at Castle Ladyhawke at Bear Lake Reserve. The wedding will take place on Thursday, Nov. 4.
“Working together with the Jackson County Tourism Development Authority to help bring some of these wedding dreams back to life is the least we can do to show our love and support to those sacrificing so much. We know that love prevails, and this is our way of showing that,” said Craig Smith, President and General Manager of Bear Lake Reserve and Castle Ladyhawke.
Castle Ladyhawke is nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains and is connected to the Bear Lake resort community.
“We are proud to partner with Castle Ladyhawke on this amazing opportunity for such a deserving couple. I am so excited to hear the stories of those entering our contest,” Jackson County Tourism Director Nick Breedlove said.
