The philosophers think about it reluctantly – when no one is looking. The theologians explore it zealously – because they have to. The deep thinkers on the human condition have plumbed the depths, the breath and the height of love for millennia – and have exhumed paltry explanations of this deep-seated emotion and expression of will.

Ah, but alas. What is love? In fact, what is Eros in particular, the lighter-fluid passion that has paved the way for the institution of marriage? The answer is simple: It’s that thing you have in your heart before you decide to schedule your wedding in Highlands, North Carolina. As a guest at The Park on Main®, the luxury, pet-friendly boutique hotel in the raging Southern Appalachian Mountains.

While we at The Park on Main® certainly enjoy exploring the deeper meaning of such profound ideas as love in all of its mutations and manifestations, we fully admit that we have avoided adding our two cents into the semantic mix.

After all, who needs to know what love is when you’re in love? And where else should you go for the finest, most beautiful and the loveliest wedding this side of eternity?

Wonderful Weddings in Highlands

The Highlands, North Carolina area offers visitors a number of great opportunities for weddings. And The Park on Main® offers guests the most luxurious surroundings in a charming small town nearly surrounded with the proud ripple of the Highlands Plateau, which is quickly becoming one of the most romantic places on earth for weddings.
