With its stunning view of Blackwater Canyon, Pendleton Point is a prime spot in West Virginia for elopements and small weddings. The Blackwater Falls area is one of the most gorgeous locations in West Virginia during any season, but we just love the magical feel of the area when it’s blanketed by snow. An added bonus that you get to snuggle more with your person to stay warm, which results in even better photos!
