She loves all things southern, sweet tea and chocolate (although not together!!), and homemade pound cake with her coffee (yes….always together!!). She is humbled that she is able to run her dream business from her home base and thankful that she can share this blessing of home with all of her couples, their families and guests.
As the Founder of Chestnut Ridge, Taylor credits her history in wedding planning since 2013 to her success in the industry. She did extensive research working for other venues in Asheville, and planning weddings all around North Carolina (from the triad to the mountains!). She has seen almost every possible set up, situation, and dealt with all the things at Chestnut Ridge. She built and designed Chestnut Ridge with her husband, and continues to style and design parties for corporate events, family gatherings, and weddings.
Loving every minute of the chaos, Taylor is by day a total boss babe to a mega successful business where she’s a total girl’s girl and by night she is a full-time mommy to a wild crew of boys who keep her nothing but busy.
Emily is in fact a local (whoop whoop!), born and raised in Black Mountain, North Carolina. She then went on to attend and graduate from Presbyterian College which is in the heart of Clinton, South Carolina. While attending PC she fostered a love for planning and leadership in her roles as President and VP of Recruitment in her sorority Zeta Tau Alpha.
Emily loves all things fashion, she describes her style as French Girl Chic meets Hampton Casual. Oh and she LOVES the color blue! She is a sucker for a good book, tacos and spicy margs, Harry Styles, and of course a good rom-com. This girl loves love. She calls herself a “Hopeful Romantic” because she thinks hopeless and romantic shouldn't be in the same sentence.
People that know Emily will say her God given talent is how well she connects with people. She loves to talk, make connections, and to brighten up a room. While she may embody the personality of a Golden Retriever, she certainly is straight forward, bold, and downright honest (after all she is a Gemini).
Each and every couple has a special place in her heart, she will without a doubt be standing in the back shedding a tear and smiling with you while watching you say I Do! She's passionate about her work and strives to make a difference in each of her couples lifes.
Bound by design and all things eclectic, Whitney is your go-to girl with a eye for anything that speaks to your style and heart. With a doers heart and a desire to place, so is confident in her opinion and knows how to bring a vision to life.
She's lived so many places, traveling up until she found her home (for the 2nd time) in Western NC, she can pull a room together in perfect taste and elevate a room to wow your guests.
