    Dream team makes our dream work!

    Exactly one month and one day ago my fiancé and I had our wedding ceremony at The Ridge followed by our reception at The Venue. If we could do it all over again - the planning, e-mails, phone calls, the visits to Asheville, then of course the actual day of the ceremony and reception...we wouldn't change A THING. We cannot thank the team at The Venue enough. From day one, Marta, Deandra, Jillian, Darien, and Chloe made us feel completely comfortable and that whatever it took to make use feel stress-free and at ease, they would take care of. Planning a wedding from a distance (we live in Charleston) can be stressful, but the team at The Venue went above and BEYOND to take care of all of our needs, wants, and wildest dreams. Their level of professionalism is outstanding - from the early days of planning to the execution of the events, they never once failed to accommodate. I also felt like I became friends with the planners, as they were so welcoming and easy to talk to, and reassured me constantly that everything would be beautiful - and it was. The space is incredible, and they nailed our vision in every way. The FOOD...AMAZING. All of our guests commented about how delicious the food was, and couldn't get enough. Our friends and family also couldn't believe how smoothly everything ran considering the change of venues (The Ridge to The Venue). This proves that their entire team works incredibly together to ensure that every moment of your (our) special day runs seamlessly. I am someone who can easily become stressed out, and the day of my wedding, I didn't worry one bit - I knew I was in good hands at all times. We can't thank the team enough for the time and effort they put into making this truly, the best day ever. To be honest...I miss them all! I would recommend them now and forever. Also, totally do the mashed potato station:)

    Incredible - and so easy to plan from Brooklyn!

    We can't thank Amanda and the entire team at the Venue enough for our incredible wedding day. The Venue is absolutely beautiful and the team knows how to seamlessly pull together an amazing event. We loved that it's right downtown, which gave our guests the freedom to explore and enjoy Asheville between our ceremony and the reception.

    We planned the wedding long distance from Brooklyn, but Amanda made it so easy - Amanda was so responsive and answered all of our questions thoroughly - and she was also patient when we weren't quite as fast to respond as she was. :) It alleviated a lot of stress to not have to worry about providing our own decorations and candles and trust the team to make it look spectacular. Amanda was incredibly thoughtful and made sure to check in with us throughout the reception (she had drinks waiting for us and even brought some of the late night biscuits to us on the dance floor and packed up some of the desserts for us to take with us that night too).

    Also - I'm not sure if my parents had more fun at the wedding or the tasting - definitely do the tasting if you can. Chef is amazing and has such a passion for the food and local ingredients. Definitely one of the best parts of planning the wedding!

    Here's a comment from my mom too:
    "The Venue was an amazing event space for their wedding, the food delicious (please compliment chef), the wait staff gracious and the coordination of all the moving parts went off without a hitch."

    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!
