    The Ridge is Exceptional

    From start to finish, our experience at The Ridge was truly exceptional. Throughout planning and preparation, Seth, Darien, Chef Michael, Marta and their outstanding team of professionals delivered to us a first-class wedding event. Although the final ninety days leading up to our ceremony were shrouded in uncertainty due to the evolving pandemic, the good folks at The Ridge did everything possible to ensure that our wedding day was magical and truly unforgettable. Seth promised us that he would do everything in his power to never say “no,” then delivered on that pledge through unprecedented challenges. Ultimately, our wedding day was highlighted by perfect weather, perfect views, a first-class dining experience, and exceptional hospitality by a friendly and well-coordinated team of hosts. As bride and groom, for one spectacular evening at The Ridge, we felt like royalty. We were able to share a magnificent celebration with our family and closest friends- a celebration none of us will ever forget. The Ridge, and all of the wonderful people there, will forever hold a special place in our hearts. They have gifted us with so many fantastically sweet memories of our wedding day.

    The Ridge's reply:

    Jason & Tammy.. From the first day we met, where you all ended your tour with an early dinner on the front porch looking over the mountains, to the final handshake as you all left newlyweds, the entire journey was unforgettable. Thank you!

    Perfect Venue

    Our daughter was recently married at The Ridge just outside of Asheville, NC and WOW! I cannot adequately describe how perfect the day was and how seamlessly the event unfolded. The views from the ceremony site are breathtaking and the gorgeous Chateau for the reception makes for a storybook setting. Darien and his staff were as professional as could be and made sure that the bride and groom, every member of the families and each of the guests had an ideal experience. From the moment we met Darien at The Ridge 10 months ago we knew the venue was a perfect fit for bringing Sara & Scott’s mountain wedding vision to life. The planning was so easy and laid back and every detail was so beautifully executed. All of the guests raved about how perfect the wedding and reception were. Thank you again Darien! Hope to see you on our next visit to Asheville!

    As a side note, during this crazy Covid time, we felt comfortable that the staff and all of the vendors were inconspicuously taking every precaution to keep our party safe.

    Over The Top!

    My daughter recently had her wedding at The Ridge. The scenery cannot be captured in words, you must see it for yourself, it is breathtaking. The house where the wedding party gets ready and the chateau where receptions are held are so beautiful. Darien is extremely professional, but also very friendly, down to earth, and most accommodating. If you want the wedding of your dreams in a fabulous setting with superior staff, look no further.

    The Ridge's reply:

    Kathy,

    We can't thank you enough!! The journey with you and developing a friendship has been a blessing !! Miss you guys !!
