    Highland's space and Nikki will NOT disappoint!

    Highland
    We could probably right a short story about our beyond amazing experience with and at Highland Brewing for our wedding. It all began when my (now) husband and I were at Highland for a tour a couple years ago. We walked into the event space as they were setting up for a wedding and we instantly knew that the space was perfect. The main floor of the event space is naturally stunning. The wood accents on the walls, the touch of iron and metal in the space, the chalkboard beer menu, the huge stage, and the bridal SUITE….OMG the bridal suite. I’ll get to that in a minute. The mezzanine overlooks the main floor and wraps around beautifully; we chose to do our cocktail hour here for guests after the ceremony while we took photos and that was such a fabulous space to utilize. Move to the third floor and you have the rooftop bar where we had our ceremony, overlooking perfectly placed mountains as our background. Let me say that we barely decorated any of the event space….it was THAT gorgeous on its own. What sold us on Highland for our wedding was the vast amount of space and different types of roaming areas for our guests to move from one level to the next and finally to the main floor for our reception. Every floor served a different purpose and made for simple movement of the crowds while we took photos.
    During our 1.5 year engagement, Highland continued to add their own improvements (none were NEEDED but they just kept making the space more attractive) to the space. They added fun and simple hanging lights to the main floor, redid the sound boards on the stage, removed sound boards from the wall which allowed the wooden accents to shine and most importantly, they built a bridal suite. Let me tell you, this is where you and your bridesmaids or groomsmen want to be the final moments before you walk down the aisle. It’s private. It’s comfortable. It’s hidden. There’s access to a bathroom. It’s simply perfectly placed. Our wedding planner also had a plate of food and beers waiting for my husband and I immediately after the ceremony in the suite so we could take 15 minutes to ourselves and without this space, that would not have been possible. Our guests could not stop complimenting the space. The views, the outdoor feels, indoor beauty, and ample dance space provided for the perfect trio of wedding fun.
    Our main contact through the entire process was Nikki and we are forever indebted to her for her out of this world customer service. Nikki helped make our dreams come true. Admittedly, we had very specifics ideas of how we wanted the space to look and Nikki listened, so patiently, and executed beyond what we could have ever imagined. She is a saint and so very talented. Nikki answered almost every question we had on the spot and if she didn’t have the answer right then and there, she was in touch with us almost immediately to clarify. Her communication was second to none, her professionalism and spunky, fun demeanor truly helped make our wedding day the best day ever. My husband and I continue to say that we would relive that day any chance we could and we owe a great bit of that to Nikki.
    If you’re looking for a wedding venue that does not require a ton of décor but could be amplified would it, if preferred, look no further. The space can be transformed into whatever your style is but it’s also naturally so stunning; our guests were blown away that our “brewery wedding” was a top-notch venue. I promise you will not be disappointed with the customer service either. Nikki truly is one of the best in the biz.

    When you think of the WNC area a few things come to mind. Mountains, the blue ridge parkway, Asheville, and Beer! Highland Brewing Company sits at the center of all of this (figuratively and literally speaking). We've had the pleasure of attending and working a couple of events here and the experience has always been stellar! From the hospitality, to the space, to the beer, Highland Brewing Company is simply an excellent choice for those looking to have an authentic wedding experience and for those who are lovers of craft beer!

    I love Highland Brewing!! They are the best - the staff, the venue, and the beer! There isn't much more you can ask for, but they definitely give it. They have a rooftop, mezzanine for cocktail, and a beautiful reception space! They provide chairs, tables, and set up. You can't get much more Asheville than Highland!
