If you haven’t figured it out yet, we here at Amative Creative LOVE the Blue Ridge Mountains. Some of our favorite pictures have our glorious mountains as the backdrop. So, it’s no surprise that many of our couples choose the mountains as the setting for their special day. If you’re as in love with the Blue Ridge as we are, here are some wedding songs inspired by our setting.
There’s no better place to start than with Alan Jackson’s Blue Ridge Mountain Song. From the enchanting melody to the sweet love song lyrics (okay we know it doesn’t have the happiest of endings) this song is clearly the start of most Blue Ridge Mountain playlists.
If you call Lynchburg home, Jeff Carl’s Here I’m Home is a must on your wedding playlist. Carl, who now lives in Nashville, spent his college years in Lynchburg and the song (as well as the music video) are both love songs to our sweet city.
Jimmy Fortune (of the Statler Brothers) wrote this song for his buddy Earl Hamner (of the tv show the Walton’s). Both the lyrics and the music evoke all of the things we love about the Blue Ridge Mountains.
While this song might not talk about Virginia or the Blue Ridge, it is the perfect song for a father/daughter or mother/son dance at any mountain wedding.
If you’re really going for a folk/bluegrass, feel for your wedding, this song is a must at your reception. It’s fun and will get your guests out on the dance floor cutting a rug!
One of our sweet couples, Caroline & West, used this song as the soundtrack for their engagement film (also set in the heart of our Blue Ridge). West’s love song to Caroline would be the perfect addition to your mountain wedding playlist.
Is any wedding playlist complete without a little Elvis? I think not.
If you’re looking for more inspiration, be sure to check out this great folk song on Spotify playlist. It’s been playing nonstop around here, giving us all the feels.
