Things to Do in Asheville – Renew Your Vows of Love and Commitment for Valentine’s Day

Join MOUNTAIN MADE Gallery and the Historic Grove Arcade on Saturday, February 12th, along with other romantically inclined couples in renewing their vows at 4 p.m.

Online PR News – 05-February-2011 – – Asheville NC - February has always been a month of transitions and new beginnings. While seemly buried deep inside the stillness of winter, the earth slowly renews itself and prepares for spring and warmer weather.

As do many people in love and in relationships. The holiday get-togethers with family, friends and co-workers are over and many couples take this time to reassess and renew their vows of love and commitment to each other.

Darr Conradson, a licensed minister with over 10 years experience and who has officiated at over 1500 ceremonies, will lead the devoted and loving couples in a group ceremony in the promenade of the Historic Grove Arcade.

The Grove Arcade is well-known for its heart-shaped tracery stonework and beautiful old-world ambiance, and makes for a wonderful spot to declare your love once more.

All the couples will share in a free champagne toast after the ceremony is complete (must be 21 years of age).

Remember to visit MOUNTAIN MADE, an Asheville Art Gallery, before the ceremony. We showcase an exquisite collection of handmade jewelry, wooden keepsake boxes and other one-of-a-kind fine art gifts that can only be purchased here in Western North Carolina.

We even offer a unique ceramic “chocolate candy box” made by one of talented local artisans just for the holiday. Click to learn more =>

Mountain Made is a project of Mountain BizWorks, a local not-for-profit organization, and features the works of regional artisans, writers and musicians.

The MOUNTAIN MADE art gallery and gift shop, as well its proceeds, will further support entrepreneurial development in our Southern Appalachian Mountains.
