We had our wedding here and it was such an amazing day due in large part to the staff at Westglow. Jen was an awesome coordinator and was easy to work with and on top of things from day one. I did not have to worry about much at all, because I knew the staff at Westglow would take care of everything. The salon did our hair and makeup with turned out great, the food was delicious, and all of my guests have been raving about how beautiful Westglow was.Sent on 09/08/2017
We also stayed at Westglow, as did many of my family members. The beds were insanely comfortable and the rooms were so charming. The breakfasts were amazing and, once again, the staff was so great- they were kind, accommodating, and attentive all weekend.
I could not have asked for a better wedding venue. Thank you Westglow!

Everyone at Westglow were simply perfect! They are very professional and truly cared about my event. Out of all the crazy things a wedding weekend can bring, I was blown away by their professionalism and southern hospitality. I would recommend anyone to Westglow for a big event or even just a yummy dinner.Sent on 11/14/2017
Westglow is a unique venue with a view that's just stellar. I've worked events there over the past years and they've always been memorable. The aesthetics of the venue feel grand and exclusive-- an ideal feel for your wedding. The food is always delicious and their events coordinator Jen really has a knack for pulling it all together. She really makes Westglow tick in my opinion. Jen has an open and honest way of communicating what needs to happen without seeming rushed or pushy. I look forward to working there again!
Westglow is such a unique venue, and we love working there. Their coordinator Jen is amazing! She is relaxed, organized, kind, and pays attention to every detail. The venue is the perfect one for great wedding pictures as well because of the gorgeous front lawn and the view of the mountains from all angles.
Westglow Resort and Spa is absolutely beautiful and the view is breathtaking. The staff is awesome to work with and everything is done so very professionally and all details are taken care of!! They have so very much to offer with the wedding site, the spa, housing and delightfully wonderful food!!
