Best Wedding Weekend
I'm from out of town so I was hesitant about planning my wedding but Brahma Ridge was the best choice we could have made. I loved having the venue for the entire weekend and we had about 1/4 of our guests staying on site. Everyone loved their glamping tents, buses, or staying at the house. As a Florida girl it was so nice waking up on my wedding day to the sounds of the river going by our glamping tent and then taking a misty mountain walk over to breakfast at the house. It made the whole weekend seem so magical.Sent on 06/18/2019
We had our rehersal dinner on the pond deck and after a quick evening shower it cleared up to be a beautiful night. We spent the majority of the weekend on site celebrating with our families and friends. Holly, Rob, and their staff were incredible and flexible. They helped make sure our weekend went perfectly and I can't thank them enough.

Perfect wedding venue
We did a destination wedding at Brahma and both Holly and Rob made the process so easy. They were super accommodating for our on site rehearsal dinner including setting up seating and centerpieces at their Earthberm house and helped us with dropping our luggage off early. They are truly a one stop shop - Holly took so many items off my packing list with the collection of wedding/entertaining stuff she’s accumulated. Rob shuttled everyone to their cars and the bathroom the day of and made sure we had everything we needed. Their communication skills and effort to make sure all was well and in place was so appreciated. The property was beautiful, our wedding was seamless and Holly and Rob were so wonderful to work with. I highly recommend Brahma Ridge.Sent on 11/19/2018

Best Wedding Venue in Asheville
My wife Joese and I got married at Brahma Ridge on October 27 and stayed in the Earthbern house for the weekend. It couldn't have been a better experience. The venue is perfect and having the house to ourselves was ideal. I would recommend anyone getting married here to rent the house just for yourselves and it is a great place to get ready for the ceremony and even host a night before gathering. We decided to stay the night after our wedding as well which was great for winding down after all the craziness of the wedding day. Holly & Rob and their staff were extremely accommodating and made our wedding the best it could have been. Thanks for everything!Sent on 11/28/2018
