Reviews after the “I Do’s!”

Elisabeth K – Married 10.17.20

Nicole with The Planning was the greatest gift to our wedding planning and wedding weekend. She went above and beyond to make an unforgettable wedding. In the midst of a pandemic, she faced changes and challenges with a positive attitude and patience. We could not have done it without her!

Mary Beth – Married 12.12.20

Couldn’t have asked for a better planner! Nicole was absolutely fantastic! She is so kind and attentive to every detail, even the ones I forgot about.

First of all, I had three and a half months to plan my wedding…not even to mention planning during COVID. After many road blocks, we stumbled upon The Venue. So as a last ditch effort, we contacted them 5 weeks before our wedding date.  I immediately felt relieved when we sat down with Nicole to go over details. She has thought of it all and will keep you on track throughout the whole process, no matter how long or short your timeline may be!

The week of my wedding was a little stressful with trying to make sure I had everything in order. When I slid into my rehearsal on 2 wheels with all of my decor and extra items stuffed in a box, she put everything together and displayed it perfectly by the next evening. She helped relieve stress levels throughout the whole planning process which was worth so much more than a dollar amount! The night of the wedding, we didn’t have to lift a finger (she even personally changed my shoes for me!). It was all so perfect and I couldn’t have asked for more! I could not more highly recommend Nicole!


Where do I begin!! First off, Marta and the planning team are the BEST at what they do. I feel so lucky to have worked with them for our big day! The attention to detail and work they put in to making our reception go off without a hitch is amazing and I cannot tell them thank you enough! The space is GORGEOUS and the food is honestly incredible. We’ve heard from probably every single one of our guests saying it was the best wedding food they’ve had. We feel so lucky to know you all and we would choose the Venue ten times over!

I can’t thank you enough for all that you did for me/us on our wedding day! You were amazing to work with. You were quick to respond, extremely helpful and went above and beyond what we were expecting! Thank you for taking the time to steam my veil, write on the chalkboard sign, set up the ceremony site and fix my dress when it ripped! You really truly cared about making our day perfect and it was, rain and all! The day was seamless and our family and friends are still raving about how beautiful our wedding was! Thank you so much for helping to make our day perfect! You are THE BEST!

Such a beautiful venue for weddings! My wife and I had a wonderful experience at The Ridge! The scenic view and stunning backdrop at The Ridge was by far the best we found in the area. Extremely professional! The owner was a joy to work with and Cloie delegated and projected strong leadership throughout the event. Will recommend to anyone searching for a wedding venue! We cannot wait to see the pictures from the photographer!

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. …..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. … 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. Thank you for everything. TAKE US BACK!
