Ashley and Smash Events handled our flowers for our wedding and were recommended by our venue. Ashley was INCREDIBLE. About two months prior to my date I changed my entire vision - she made sure to make me very note and helped me make choices on what would look best. What her and her team created was amazing - it was better than any vision I had. I sent Ashley two ideas and she went above and beyond to make those ideas my wedding. Absolutely unreal - I could not recommend more!Sent on 03/22/2021
Smash Events's reply:Taylor, you were such a joy to work with! I can’t wait to see pics! Congrats again and thank you for trusting us with your vision. xoxo

Wonderful food and service!
Amazing food and service!
Ashley was so responsive and helpful during the ever changing plans of the Covid-19 crisis. She was accommodating for our tasting. And her food blew our minds. Her menu was diverse and fun! So many different options and styles to go with. We used her for both our wedding and rehearsal dinner. For the wedding we did stations, a taco bar, kids table, and grilled cheese station. There was no shortage of food, the stations were beautifully displayed and so many guests raved about the quality of the food! The wait staff was friendly and helpful. For the rehearsal dinner we had a bbq spread. Sooo good! There was no shortage of food for either event and Ashley offered to box the food up for left overs or donate to a local shelter. Ashley and her staff are an amazing team and I couldn’t have asked for anything better. They also have a mobile food truck I would totally recommend trying if you see them in the Asheville area!

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 for everything!
We booked Smash for catering, floral, and planning for our Oct 17, 2020 wedding that ended up being in the middle of Covid-19 changes. I am SO glad we went with Smash because they absolutely know exactly what they're doing! I asked Ashley for so many food swaps, alterations to dishes, and even requests that weren't on the sample menu (my extended family are picky eaters) and she was so accommodating and never made me feel like I was asking too much! The floral she designed was also completely gorgeous! Though I never found the ideal bouquet inspiration picture to show her, Ashley somehow created my perfect bouquet and also made a floral clip for my hair which was one of my favorite details of the day!
We also had the pleasure of working with Dominique for planning and she was just as wonderful! She handled so many details, from the big ones like coordinating rentals and running rehearsal to small things like bustling my dress and finding the perfect spot to hang our custom neon sign that we loved. My family kept expecting for there to be things they needed to do throughout the day (you always expect at least a little stress on your wedding day, right?) but Dominique and Ashley handled it all!
If you want the most seamless wedding day possible and to work with such kind and talented people, you need to book Smash!Sent on 01/21/2021

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

Great food and experience
Smash was amazing at working with us when we had to reschedule our larger ceremony/party due to covid! We were able to book them again for 2021. We also decided to elope on our original wedding date and Smash agreed to cater a dinner for two for us. They helped make a potentially disappointing set of circumstances into a really special night for me and my husband. Also, the food is absolutely amazing!!!Sent on 11/10/2020

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!!
