    December Wedding at Old Edwards

    My Husband and I absolutely love Highlands, NC and the Old Edwards Inn event planners - this place holds such a special place in our hearts and is where Jake proposed last year so we knew it was a place we wanted to bring all of our friends and family to celebrate our wedding weekend. We first met with Gabby Stone at the Old Edwards Inn wedding and banquet planning center, she was (and continued to be) so accommodating and showed us every single venue Old Edwards has to offer. She spent hours with us during our first meeting and really cared about getting to know Jake and I as a couple. She helped us envision our wedding day and gave wonderful suggestions for wedding vendors that know Old Edwards extremely well. Gabby helped Jake and I make our wedding day unique and offered amazing suggestions. We continued to work with Gabby throughout the year of planning and she was very responsive, easy to talk to, and really knows the venues and wedding process like the back of her hand which made emailing and calling her extremely helpful. Not only is Gabby professional, kind and warm but she is such an amazing person who really cares about each and every couple that plans their wedding with Old Edwards. Gabby made Jake and I feel so special throughout the entire planning process and made us feel like celebrities throughout our wedding weekend. Gabby is such a positive energy and we greatly appreciated her awesome and up-beat personality throughout the weekend. Gabby helped Jake and I plan the rehearsal dinner and wedding and when it came time for our wedding weekend it was better than we could have ever imagined. From the amazing food, flawless service, easy to work with transportation and gorgeous venue to her assistance during the ceremony and reception, our wedding weekend was amazing. Gabby really makes sure every detail is thought out and we were extremely impressed with Gabby and the entire banquet team at Old Edwards Inn. Our wedding weekend was a fairytale and each and every one of our guests made it a point to make it known that the food, drinks and service were all impeccable and that the weekend was a dream. Highlands is such a magical place and that is largely due to the Old Edwards Inn and Gabby Stone. Thank you Gabby from the bottom of our hearts, you are truly amazing!

    Beautiful wedding venue with perfect staff

    We got married at the Hutchinson House with 50 guests. Everything was absolutely perfect from beginning to end. Jessica Silver was so patient with me and went over all the options over many different phone calls. :) Once we made the decision to get married at the Hutchinson House, Amy Redl helped us execute all of the details. We do not live in North Carolina, and having Amy and the Old Edwards team handling everything gave us so much peace of mind. They truly think of every detail. Old Edwards worked seamlessly with our other vendors to make sure everything came together and our wedding was perfect. We cannot recommend getting married here enough!!!

    Perfect venue

    Highlands is one of my favorite places in the world, and The Farm at Old Edwards was truly the most beautiful wedding venue. Everything was perfect, from the precious house where the bridal party got ready, to the grounds, to the Orchard House for the ceremony, the Orchard for cocktail house, and the barn for the reception. The food was outstanding, as was the wonderful Old Edwards team. The Old Edwards team was so wonderful to work with, especially during covid when we had to reschedule and slash our numbers by over half. I could not recommend this venue more highly (and wish we could do it all over again, because it was the best day of my life).
