Smash simply rocks! Wonderful folks to work and plan with- we were so fortunate to have them for the best food EVER (and extremely reasonable!) and for their attention to every detail. Ashley and Dominique are creative beyond words and so supportive of our desire to have a non-traditional wedding. They understood our vision and worked so very hard to make it happen for us. We loved every minute of working with them. You can't go wrong with the entire Smash Events crew!Sent on 05/16/2016

The best of the best!
I began the planning process before covid hit and booked Smash for our catering, floral and planning. They were truly amazing through the entire process, including a reschedule and a new venue. Ashley created a delicious menu that my guests raved about and the flowers blew me away! I gave her an idea of what I wanted and she hit it out of the park. She answered my 10000 questions and concerns, especially when I was freaking out over having to change the date. Dominique did my month-of planning and was SO professional and helpful. She was very easy to contact and got back to me quickly with answers which was a huge deal to me. The big day went so smoothly and my fiance and I felt relaxed because Smash handled everything with such confidence and ease. They made sure our guests felt safe with the covid regulations- our guests felt so well taken care of. I can't recommend these women enough!Sent on 09/20/2020

Rehearsal Dinner at brewery
Shayla was on top of everything. She had the best ideas and she was so trustworthy. The venue was set up perfectly. Everything ran like clockwork. Shayla is a very in charge person and she never let us down. I would definitely use Smash Events again. Price was very reasonable!Sent on 09/22/2020

The best people!
We absolutely loved working with Smash Events for our wedding. We used their month of planning package and they continuedly went above and beyond our expectations. We worked primarily with Shayla who was an absolute angel through the ENTIRE planning process. She always had great ideas, recommendations, and encouragement even during COVID-19. We also worked with Dominque who also was exceptional. These ladies are professional, creative, and SO good at what they do. Smash Events did the perfect job pulling off our wedding full of details.Sent on 10/04/2020

Do yourself a favor, hire them!
We had Smash Events for our catering, planning & floral. The food was delicious, was presented beautifully, & the flowers were GORGEOUS! The highlight was Dominique & her planning services, seriously, hire her! She was amazing, especially with the bumps in the road with Covid-19 & made my day absolutely seamless.Sent on 07/28/2020

Dominique was a god send! She made everything so easy for us and helped us relax when we were overwhelmed with details. We looked into a day of coordinator 2 months before the wedding. My only suggestion is to start working with one sooner to avoid any stress. She was absolutely amazing!!Sent on 12/23/2019

Delicious and Dedicated
Smash Events wears many hats and is FANTASTIC at them all! They were our caterers, bartenders, and event assistants at the wedding, and they NAILED IT!Sent on 11/04/2019
The food (for both the cocktail hour and dinner) were delicious and beautifully presented. The bartenders were fun and attentive. The staff was friendly, helpful, and a step ahead of our needs.
Needless to say, they know what they're doing, and they're doing it right.
Any and all questions were answered timely and professionally. They eased us through the process of planning this out-of-state destination wedding.
On our special day, Smash Events made our guests feel at ease with their hospitality, and truly brought the day together with their attentiveness and flexibility.
Give Smash Events a go. You will not be disappointed!

Smash Events is AHmazing!
When I started looking for my wedding vendor team, I started with catering. I had so many people tell me they were booked or extremely expensive 1.5 years before my wedding! When I finally found Smash, it was the biggest relief! Their preferred vendor package was everything we needed plus some. Ashley and her team were so accommodating and understanding. Chef Nestor really cares about the food and what he is serving. We asked for southern comfort foods and boy did they deliver! All together, they are an amazing team and the food was AWESOME! We got nothing but compliments. I only wish I could've eaten more!Sent on 11/20/2019

Smash Events provided catering and month-of-planning for our wedding on September 7, 2019 and everything was truly phenomenal! Ashley was incredibly responsive and helpful planning our cocktail hour and family-style reception dinner; her team is so professional and kind (they even brought me over an appetizer plate during cocktail hour while making my rounds, SO sweet!), and the food was absolutely delicious! Dominique is an incredible wedding planner, I don't know what I would have done without her, our wedding process and wedding day was so seamless, stress-free, and most importantly fun! I can't thank y'all enough, our wedding was the best day of our life, thank you SO much for being a part of making our day so special.Sent on 01/30/2020

Outstanding team & service!!
I cannot speak highly enough of this team! Just WOW! We were so lucky to hire Smash for planning, floral, and catering services. A true one stop shop. If you want an easy, cool, and reliable team to work with, these are your people.
Dominique was the most incredible wedding planner I could imagine. She is kind, calm, professional, organized, funny, and an absolute joy to be around. She kept me on track and kept my nerves at bay. Ashley is an expert florist and designer. She understood my vision and brought it to life. The catering was delicious, with a gorgeous presentation. All of our guests were raving about how tasty and amazing the service was.Sent on 09/15/2019

Above & Beyond & Then Some
Y'all hire Dominique and her team yesterday for everything! We just had Dominique as our full-service planner, but I wish we had hired Smash for food + flowers too because we were *so dang* impressed with Dominique's professionalism, her attentiveness to detail, and her calm and anxiety-relieved personality (we needed it). She worked with us every step of the way (though I wish we had hired Smash even earlier in our planning process), and helped us make all kinds of decisions (color palette, catering choices, flowers in bouquets v. tables, etc). I am SO GRATEFUL to have had Dominique to make our wedding come together, and y'all, she's so great! So friendly! Hire her and the rest of the Smash team before you do anything else.Sent on 07/19/2019

Great food, easy to work with
From the start, Ashley at smash was responsive and helpful. Smash events was a huge attribute to our wedding. We used the food truck for the rehearsal dinner, it was delicious and I liked that it made for a more informal dinner, allowing people to be able to mingle instead of all sitting down at the same time for a formal dinner. The food at the wedding reception was spectacular! No over cooked steak or dry chicken! There are so many menu options and they are probably all delicious. The staff was prompt, professional, and accommodating. The bartender made excellent drinks!!Sent on 07/01/2019
We also used smash for our wedding planner. Dominique was great! She did an excellent job of setting up, making sure everything ran smoothly and sending us off. She listened to my ideas and help make them come to life for a perfect wedding day! She was quick to respond to my emails, answered all the questions I had, and help finds solutions to any issues that arose. I had no doubt that we were in good hands with this team!

Delicious food (And great for special diets!)
Smash Events catered our wedding to perfection. We had a great initial meeting with them where they make you some test plates of their most popular dishes, then they help you create a cohesive menu for you and your guests with advice and suggestions. One of the most important things was that they provide vegetarian and gluten free options for some of our guests, and they more than came through with a variety of dishes that filled up everyone. All of the food was well prepared, well displayed, and absolutely delicious. They also made sure we were fed as well by bringing us plates personally. By the end of the night, they were completely cleaned up and cleared out, making the whole night easy and worry free.Sent on 08/01/2019

Wonderful experience with SMASH
Ashley and the Smash Events Team did an EPIC job for our wedding. We worked with Smash for our food and flowers which was a big help as my husband and I planned our wedding while living in Europe.Sent on 10/21/2018
I had almost decided to go with a different vendor but decided to email Ashley on a whim. She wrote back almost immediately! When I read the quote I couldn’t believe it. The quote was very affordable and had the add in bonus of a late night FOOD TRUCK at the end of the night. When I read that, I was SOLD!
As we were living so far away we had to make a food vendor choice before trying the food. Ashley and the Smash Events Team had already catered weddings at my venue Honeysuckle Hill and had awesome reviews online. I trusted my gut and we were not disappointed.
As we continued to plan our wedding I learned that the Smash Events Team could add in flowers. I figured it was a no brainer to bundle the two together and working with less people made it one less thing for us to worry about.
We were able to meet with Ashley in person during our very short visit during the December holidays. She was WONDERFUL! We had the best time at our tasting and the food was incredible. As Ashley had worked in the venue she was a great person to bounce ideas off of for my vision.
We just had our wedding a week ago. Everything was beautiful and delicious! The flowers were gorgeous really adding a romantic touch to the venue. The food was incredible and portions were HUGE! No one went hungry. I am still dreaming about the chicken and waffle bites. We also added in a s’mores bar which was a fun touch and I believe will be a lifelong memory for all the kiddos in attendance - they were loving it and gave them an exciting activity for the end the night.

This will be a long review so let me start by saying – AMAZING! YOU MUST HIRE THEM! Wedding planning can be stressful. You need people you can rely on and Smash Events is the way to go! I would get married every weekend if it meant I had Ashley and Dominique on my team!Sent on 10/03/2018
Wedding Coordinator Review: We hired Dominique as our month-of coordinator. Having Dominique was hands down the BEST decision I ever made when hiring vendors. She went above and beyond my expectations! (And I should mention, my expectations were high since I used to be an event planner myself.) I must also mention, I had a vendor that was difficult to work with and Dominique made it seem so easy! She stepped in where other vendors were slacking, she stayed professional and handled difficult and stressful personalities well and she was my listening ear when I had to call her every day the week leading up to my wedding just to hear her say everything is fine! With Dominique on your team, you honestly don’t need to worry about a thing.
Florist Review: Ashley did an amazing job with my floral. All I had to do was show her my Pinterest board and she ran with it. It turned out better than I could have ever imagined and better than any photo on my Pinterest. The floral décor was by far my favorite décor at our wedding – I can’t tell you how many guests commented on my bouquet.
Food Review: We used Smash Events Mobile Kitchen (their food truck) for our rehearsal dinner. I’m still craving their Holy Mole Quesadilla. We had 36 people and I was so surprised at how quickly the guests received their food and how organized it ended up being. Not to mention, all my guests loved the food!
Charlene · Married on 09/01/2018
We had a welcome party the night before our son and daughter-in-law's wedding. It was a destination wedding which we had never been to the venue or tasted the food. Shot in the dark. Ashley was so professional, always responded to my calls and emails as soon as she received them, and walked me through the whole event. Can't express enough how pleased we were with the staff, the service, but most of all the food! Absolutely delicious, good comments from the guests, and very creative. I highly recommend the food and the staff!Sent on 09/30/2018

Ashely and the Smash Team were amazing to work with! Their food was delish and gorgeous AND they helped where our other vendors fell short - so grateful!!! It was very clear that they care about their quality of service and that showed through the whole process.Sent on 09/30/2018
I really couldn't imagine our wedding without Ashley and the Smash Team. I would recommend them to anyone needing catering and/or event planning!!
Lea · Married on 08/04/2018
Ashley did such an amazing job with our wedding food and floral! We had a super fun menu of tacos, BBQ sundaes and a mac and cheese bar, as well as some delicious passed appetizers. People said it was the best food they have ever eaten at a wedding, and I agreed with them! Ashley was also very flexible and down to create whatever menu we wanted.Sent on 08/14/2018
We also tapped Ashley's team to do signature cocktails, which were so so good. (Watermelon mojito of my dreams.) AND she did our personal florals and wedding arbor decor, which was incredibly beautiful.
Hire Ashley and her team, you won't regret it!

It was our pleasure and delight to work with Dominique and Smash Events for our daughter's wedding on May 5, 2018 ... Samantha Ruckman and Lucas Randazzo at Betty's Creek. She was always several steps ahead of us in thinking of what might need to be done or needed to be taken care of and she took what could have been a very stressful time and turned it into a breeze for us. I honestly don't know how we would have been successful in accomplishing such a carefree wedding without her and her staff!! I HIGHLY recommend her to anyone planning a wedding - YOU NEED Dominique and Smash Events at your side because she won't forget a thing and you will be delighted with the results she and her staff bring to the day you want to be perfect!!

When I first started working with Ashley and Smash Events, I wondered if things might be too good to be true-- their pricing is incredible, their catering services include set up and clean up, full service (we opted for plated dinners over a buffet), bartenders, etc. AND all of their personnel are paid a just wage, which was very important to me. I realized quickly that things are not too good to be true- Smash is just AMAZING at what they do. The catering tasting was so much fun, and Ashley was great about communicating during the months prior to the big day. I felt comfortable emailing her with small detail things, and she was a great advisor as I made decisions. She was also incredibly flexible as some of the wedding plans shifted here and there-- she was generous in amending our contract together several times so that it really reflected what my husband and I wanted.Sent on 12/02/2017
Wedding Day (11/18) was absolutely perfect. Every detail in the catering and the floral design was intentional and creative. The guests LOVED the meal -- it was classed-up BBQ (meat and veggie) and many of them are still talking about the cheese display during the cocktail hour. Ashley and her team were super kind, fun, and easy to work with. Afterward, everything was cleaned up within 30 minutes! The flowers and greenery were stunning- they really made the space come to life. I was wow-ed. If you are getting married anywhere in the Asheville area, I can't recommend Smash more. They are truly an events company that will put their all into your day! THANK YOU SMASH!

Wow, just wow!!
Wow, just wow!! How can I express how amazing Ashley and her team are?!? I used Smash Events for catering, floral, and wedding coordination (Dominique) and it was one of the best decisions I've ever made! Ashley's client's dreams are her dreams. She is amazingly talented, doing all sorts of different events, but she makes you feel like your event is her favorite! She delights in learning your personality and tastes, being creative, and making your day a million times better than expected! I emailed her in a panic, at the last minute questioning the florals I'd asked for. She asked me a few questions and in seconds, her brilliant mind crafted the most amazing plan! I walked into the space the day of and was overcome with emotion at how perfectly she had understood my vision and executed above expectations! Smash's food is incredible...everything is the best version of that food you've ever tasted, trust me, and guests commented that it was better than the 5 star dinner they had had the night before! Presentation is awesome, an art of its own, and creatively blending effortlessly into the space. Lastly, coordination...Dominique was fantastic! I emailed her way too many documents full of questions, details, schedules, and lists and she kept them all straight, read every last word, and executed flawlessly! She has a great eye and took all of our visions and made them 100x better, making great suggestions, keeping everyone calm and on time, and ensuring we had everything we needed! It was a tremendous bonus to have our coordinator, caterer, and florist all connected, all on the same page, used to one another's flow, and blending everything together perfectly! I cannot say enough about Smash Events and I absolutely promise that if you book them, you will not be disappointed!!!Sent on 11/09/2018

Smash provided catering, bartending and florals for our wedding on 8/26/2017 and they were absolutely amazing. Their entire team was incredibly professional, kind, and talented! Ashley was extremely responsive and helpful throughout the entire planning process, answering all of my (many) questions and offering advice. She was also flexible and willing to work with us on our ideas and budget. The food was DELICIOUS- our guests were blown away and said that it was some of the best wedding food they've ever had! Everything we ate was amazing (and we highly recommend the chicken and waffles)! Smash also provided my bridal bouquet and flower crowns, which were colorful, fresh, and gorgeous- they completely fulfilled my vision!Sent on 09/01/2017
The best thing about Smash is that they put me completely at ease- this team provides much more than just catering and were a joy to work with. We could not have asked for more and are so grateful for their help in making our day one of the best of our lives! Thank you!!
Laura · Married on 09/16/2017
Delicious!!!! We had multiple guests tell us this was the best wedding food they had ever had. Smash provided our cocktail hour food, family style dinner, and a late night taco/quesadilla snack (served from their food truck). All were outstanding. They also provided wait staff, bartenders and drink stations. The service was amazing; the family style dinner was served hot and looked fantastic. Leading up to the wedding, Smash was amazing as well. The tasting was awesome and gave us a great idea of what would be served at the wedding. We had multiple changes right before the big day, and they handled them in stride (including requests for dietary restrictions from a few guests). Again, and most importantly though, the food was AMAZING!!Sent on 10/01/2017
