Chestnut Ridge is a dream y’all. I have followed their work from the day they broke ground and always said that it would be the place I would get married in, and it was.Sent on 06/13/2018
This venue was something I would not compromise on.
Taylor and her team are easy to work with, always answer questions, and make a destination wedding easy. Her list of preferred vendors (we used them all) made choosing so easy for us.
Taylor’s attention to detail, care for her brides, and southern charm make this venue a dream come true. During and since the wedding people cannot stop talking about the venue, it’s view and it’s style.

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

Dream Venue + Dream Wedding
My husband and I wanted a destination wedding in Asheville, and the minute we arrived at the top of the mountain and saw Chestnut Ridge, we knew it was were we meant to get married. Aside from the beauty of the Chestnut Ridge, it has so much to offer. Taylor and her husband built this venue with love and paid attention to every single detail with brides and grooms in mind. With this being a destination wedding it was so helpful to have a venue that had a decor closet, because we didn't have to pack up decorations and bring to Asheville.Sent on 05/06/2019
Hands down, the best part of CR was the people. Taylor and her team were always responsive and thinking about things that I would never think of. In the 14 months of planning, there wasn't one time I felt overwhelmed or stressed, because Taylor had it covered. We did the all-inclusive package and I think every bride needs this! CR and the vendors have such a strong network that we never worried about the communication/coordination between them all. I highly recommend Chestnut Ridge to any couple because they made our wedding dreams come to life!!
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!
