The Perfect Venue!
Chestnut Ridge is truly the perfect venue! When I got engaged I knew I wanted to get married in my hometown in Canton. From the moment I laid eyes on Chestnut Ridge I was smitten. The chapel is gorgeous - those windows at the front! The porch, back patio, and grounds are stunning. And the event barn is beyond perfect - from the wooden beams and fireplaces, to the farmhouse tables, to the amazing bar area, to the beautiful and comfortable bride and groom suites. Taylor has truly thought of everything! Here team is wonderful to work with and is accommodating - they did everything they could to make our family happy! Our big day was truly perfect. We couldn't ask for a better venue!Sent on 06/05/2019

Cr is a dream!
We knew as soon as we saw CR online that it would be our wedding venue, and seeing it in person for the first time was unbelievable. Even undecorated, it is breathtaking, and seeing it for the first time with our vision brought to life brought tears to my eyes. Besides it being the most beautiful venue ever, Taylor, one of the CR owners, makes you feel like family throughout the whole wedding process, and even afterwards. She is so kind and organized, which is such a blessing during wedding planning. Every space at the venue is wonderful and accommodating to any wedding size and any wedding vision. Our day was better than I ever could've imagined it, and I am so thankful we picked CR!!Sent on 12/15/2019

The most amazing wedding venue
We wish we could give Chestnut Ridge more than 5 stars. From the moment we got engaged we knew we wanted to get married in the Asheville area. We researched venues and Chestnut Ridge was the first on our list. As soon as we pulled up to the venue, we knew this would be the place we would get married. The views of the mountains are breathtaking. The venue alone doesn’t even need to be decorated for a wedding because it is that beautiful. You can tell that Taylor did a lot of research when building her venue. Besides the venue, Taylor has put together the best team of preferred vendors. They made planning an out of town wedding so easy. They were always available to answer any questions that we had. They also post so much on social media which was very helpful to get ideas and make decisions on what I wanted when planning the wedding since I was not local. All of our guests said it was the most amazing venue and wedding they have ever been to. They made sure every detail was taken care of and made the wedding day go smoothly. We cannot thank Taylor and her staff enough for the most amazing day of our lives. Thank you so much for everything.Sent on 10/31/2019
Taylor and her husband Preston have poured endless love and hard work into this venue. What started as an empty (although beautiful) ridge where the two got married, has come a timeless wedding venue for more to enjoy! They have thought of EVERYTHING you need to host a beautiful wedding, from stunning groom/bridal suites down to the multiple areas available to get married! I am blown away by the beauty of Chestnut Ridge every time I walk in, and I cannot speak highly enough of the ease in working with Taylor and her team. Prompt communication, friendly recommendations and a big southern smile are sure to be included!
