We got to see Marta from the Venue in Asheville a few days ago! She was absolutely wonderful and loved showing us the space! She has been amazing!
We absolutely love touring the venue in Asheville North Carolina. We were just blown away with the layout plan and the flexibility when it comes to customizing your wedding details.

The Venue Asheville
We live in Florida and after a lot of research, my daughter and (now) son-in-law, chose to have their wedding ceremony at the Ridge; their reception at The Venue; and The Planning assist with all of the (long distance) preparations. After only one visit to North Carolina and almost a year of numerous email questions; last minute changes; and suggestions on things I hadn’t thought of; the “Big Day” arrived. The weather cooperated so the view at The Ridge was breathtaking; and the food and service at The Venue was extraordinary. Needless to say, we could not be more pleased with the way everything turned out. Many, many thanks go out to our wedding planner Cloie (The Planning), Darien, Olivia, Hope (The Ridge) and Deandra (The Venue) (plus countless others on their respective teams) for their professionalism, patience and for all of the hard work and dedication they put into making this “Big Day” a huge success!!!!Sent on 10/11/2019

“Where do we begin....Sent on 04/17/2019
It has been the upmost pleasure working with The Venue for our wedding! We count our blessings that we found you to be the ones to pull this off in the grand style that you did. From the first meetings to the farewell confetti, theyfulfilled all of our expectations and more! The atmosphere and beauty at the church and the Venue was so special, everyone has raved about it and many commented, “Best wedding we’ve ever been to!” Our retired minister said that about the reception and he’s been to a lot of them over 40 years!
The delicious food and the chef talking with people was so impressive. The special surprise of the imported ham was loved, as well as the buried bourbon ceremony! People were very impressed from the beginning with the cocktail hour charcuterie and marlin ice sculpture over the seafood display. The servers and bartenders were plentiful and first class. The groom and father of the bride were especially pleased with the individual service that was provided, nothing was missed or left out. They are truly are a top of the line, professional outfit from the top to the bottom.”

My best friend (who was also a client of mine) had her rehearsal dinner here. Everything was wonderful! Being her MOH and hair/makeup artist I needed to make sure everything went off without a hitch and it did. Everything was perfectly decorated and food was amazing. The staff was very helpful any time we needed anything. The location for this venue is perfect too! You will not be disappointed!
A great place. every need is met and so very beautiful.
The Venue is a beautiful site for a wedding in downtown Asheville. It encompasses all Asheville is, The staff is a joy to work with.
