A warm and cozy venue for an intimate wedding...
Nikki is awesome!! She is such a sweet person, and I really felt like she wanted our wedding to be as magical as we did. She was very professional, extremely flexible, and readily available to help with anything we needed. Ambrose West is such a beautiful space for an intimate wedding. We got married in the courtyard, and had our reception in the Beacham room. We ended up at around 60 guests, and it was the perfect amount, although we definitely had room for a few more. There is a beautiful fireplace in the Beacham room, and the courtyard is decorated with lights and lots of greenery. It is really a unique, warm, and cozy space, and our wedding was everything I wanted and more!Sent on 10/06/2019

Perfect Venue for our Wedding!
We could not have been happier with our wonderful wedding at Ambrose West! From our first tour, we completely fell in love with the space, and knew that Nikki and her team would take great care of us. Throughout the process, she was responsive, answered all of our questions, and worked with us to make sure our day was fantastic.Sent on 06/26/2019
The space was absolutely perfect for our 90 person wedding. Having multiple areas for ceremony and dinner/reception was perfect, and the courtyard space made for a fantastic cocktail hour (even with pouring rain the day of our wedding!). Haywood hall is absolutely beautiful, and is such a stunning space on its own that you don't have to add a lot of decor if you don't want to! Also, having beautiful space for both people to get ready along with our wedding parties was perfect and made it really convenient to be on-site all day.
Everyone on the staff, from the bartenders to the sound tech, was absolutely incredible and worked seamlessly with our coordinator to make sure the day went off without a hitch. Absolutely recommend to anyone planning a wedding or other event in Asheville!

We held our son's rehearsal dinner in the Beacham Room. The venue is lovely- a mix of stone and wood. Nikki is very easy to work with - helpful, professional, and willing to work with you. Our guests were very impressed and had a wonderful time. I highly recommend Ambrose.Sent on 04/08/2019
