The Crest Center was absolutely awesome!

I knew I wanted to get married in Asheville and looked at 4 venues, 2 mountain and 2 city (1 DIY and 1 more inclusive for each). We chose The Crest Center (the center itself, not the pavilion) because the views were amazing and they were incredibly professional. I cannot emphasize enough how wonderful the staff was. They thought of everything and were up front about all costs. I never felt nickel and dimed, but I felt taken care of at every turn.

I never once regretted our choice. Not even when an amazing sunset "stole" about 45 minutes of our reception as guests took photos.

We picked Crest Center as our ceremony and reception venue after seeing the view from the overlook deck. It is gorgeous!

All of Crest's staff went above and beyond to make our wedding day perfect. They were so easy to work with. We were planning from afar so email was the easiest way for me to communicate. They were super responsive. They also gave us great guidance on decor and ways to cut costs. We would highly recommend this venue!!

From our very first meeting with Amy Dewey we were convinced that Crest was the perfect venue for our daughter's wedding. It is such a beautiful setting. Amy patiently showed us around as my husband and I held up our phones for our daughter in Africa and her fiance in SC to "tour" the property long distance. We live in Cary, NC, so after our initial visit, most of the planning was done via email. Amy and Brenda promptly answered every email I sent. I especially liked that they said to "keep those questions coming" because I sure had a lot of them! Tania, our bridal attendant on the day of the wedding, was a pleasure to work with! She really kept everything running smoothly. I knew we were in capable hands. Many people commented on her calm, pleasant demeanor and what an excellent job she did. I cannot imagine a better team of people to work with. Everyone at Crest was a true professional and a delight! They love their work and it shows! The food was delicious too. We deeply appreciate all the wonderful staff at Crest and M7 Event Solutions. They truly gave our daughter and son-in-law the wedding of their dreams! :)

Brenda, Amy, Dana, Brett and Sarah at Crest were incredible. I booked and planned my wedding there without ever having been in Asheville (!) and they made it a breeze. They were quick to respond and make changes and help my vision come to life. The night was flawless from the ceremony, food, bar service, to the scheduling and helpfulness!

I cannot express how perfect my wedding day was, thanks to the wonderful people I worked with at the Crest Center. The location was gorgeous, the food was fantastic, and the staff and service were excellent. What really made our day the best day of our lives, though, was some very special ladies that we were honored to work with. I have worked with Kathryn for the past two years to book and plan this wedding down to the last little detail. She is an exceptional person that was always patient, kind, and helpful no matter how many annoying questions and requests I emailed her with. She worked with me to make our wedding affordable yet beautiful. She offered me so much advice that had nothing to do with her own job, and this advice was invaluable. This wedding would have never happened without her. Tania was my bridal attendant on the day of the wedding. This title does NOTHING to describe exactly what she did for us. She coordinated all of the vendors arrivals, all of the timing of everything, she told us when and where to be. I literally did not have to make a single decision that day, she knew what I wanted and just carried out my wishes without me having to worry. When we were busy taking pictures she brought us drinks and food to make sure that we actually got to enjoy our day. She listened to me complain about my family drama and gave advice on how to avoid disaster as far as seating goes, and then she made everything run smoothly regarding all of that on the wedding day. Tania even carried my lip gloss around in her pocket so I could keep re-applying it for pictures! She was such a blessing to us that day and from the moment I met her I was confident that she would make our day perfect and handle any problem, and she certainly far exceeded my expectations. Thanks to these ladies and the wonderful staff at the Crest Center, we had the best day ever. I highly recommend this venue for ceremony, reception, and we even had a wonderful rehearsal dinner there.

The Crest Pavilion was so perfect for our wedding! I was leaning more towards an inside venue and my husband wanted outside, so we met in the middle with Crest. Now, I am so glad that we did! The staff was super helpful and sweet. Amy and Brenda ALWAYS responded to emails and calls and were more than happy to go above and beyond. Always! And on the day of, Tania was my coordinator/assistant, and she ROCKED! If you want it to happen, she will make it happen. And they were so patient with me =] I felt like there was no need to worry about anything EVER because these ladies had it covered, or walked me through the steps. Obviously, if you visit the venue, you will know how gorgeous it is. That's a given. But what made it perfect was the friendly staff AND delicious food. We had a fun whimsical wedding w/ "gourmet carnival" food. Which had my mom a little freaked. The food was amazing and my mom definitely approved! We had never expected for lamb sliders, chicken fingers and sausage corn dogs to be SO very yummy. My family was even talking about the tasty food the next day at brunch. The Crest Pavilion is by no means a cheap venue, but it is so very true that you get what you pay for. It was worth the price! It rained constantly on our big day, but no biggie. We had the ceremony in the Pavilion. We didn't chill on the back by the fire, or have the ceremony outside on the lawn, or use the outdoor space for photos overlooking the mountains... But that wasn't even on our minds. It was actually really fun that we were all "stuck" in the pavilion. It was a bit more intimate that way. Our guests had a fun time and we definitely couldn't have pictured a better venue for the occasion.

The Crest Center Pavilion was absolutely incredible! From the moment we stepped foot onto the property - we knew this was the place! Kathryn was my direct contact throughout the entire process and was absolutely the best! She was very honest and eager to answer all my questions and many emails -- quickly! Brenda was awesome in keeping me up to date on what was due in ample amount of time! The food was absolutely delicious!!! Everyone raved about it! We did “pre-purchase” way too much wine (12 bottles worth about $25 each) than what was actually needed so I would suggest brides to be careful on this and to project less than the recommended. The only downfall, which I would not take away from the rating I gave, is that the attendants going around took glasses that were still somewhat full away from unattended guest’s table that still were drinking throughout the night. This just resulted in wasted beverages. Sara Fields was my bridal attendant the day of and she was amazing! She helped smoothly transition everyone in their proper places without being "noticed" as the one directing it all. She made us all feel so comfortable and always had a smiling face! Such a sweetheart! Our wedding was absolutely amazing and I can't thank everyone enough who was involved in making this night magical! Would definitely recommend 100%.

My daughter's reception was exceptional! The ceremony was off-site but the reception celebration was in the Pavilion. The weather was spectacular for mid-March and the guests (about 275) enjoyed the outside patio and fire pit. Food was delicious and well tended. Staff was kind and professional. Kathryn was very patient and helpful throughout the planning process. My vendors all loved the setting, the staff and the way the night progressed. My husband and I were very, very pleased. I would recommend highly this venue.

We loved having our wedding at the Crest Center in Asheville, NC. It is such a beautiful venue with a gorgeous view of the mountains. We do not live in Asheville so were planning the wedding from out of town. Amy and Brenda from M7 Events were awesome- they were responsive, helpful, and supportive throughout my entire planning process. They answered all my questions so quickly and were instrumental in the planning process. I couldn't have done it without their help! We received so many compliments from our guests on the venue. We are so glad that we chose the Crest Center for our wedding. We had such a great experience there, and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a wedding venue in Asheville.

The Crest Center was the BEST venue for my wedding. The staff were extremely helpful and flexible. We used both the Pavillion (Ceremony & Reception) and the Crest center (Dinner) as well as the outdoor deck and lawn areas. The staff during dinner were very prompt with delivering the delicious food and refilling drinks. During the reception they were great in coordinating with the band for the special events (cake cutting, bouquet toss, etc). The coordination with the sparkler send off went off perfectly! This venue was worth every penny!

We had to hire M7 Event Solutions three weeks before our wedding because our contracted caterer went out of business and we had 160 people attending our out of town wedding. Not only did M7 provide great service they did it under extreme circumstances. As if only having 3 weeks to prepare was not enough of a challenge for them, it rained all day at our outdoor wedding and tent reception. M7 had to track through mud and rain with plates and other dishes. I cannot say enough about how they went out of there way to not just serve food, but assist guests to avoid falls and cleaning up the dance floor periodically through the night. This was all well beyond our expectations. In hindsight it was a blessing to us that our other caterer was unable to perform because M7 went over and beyond to make our day special.

We were so pleased with both the planning and execution of our daughter's wedding. Our daughter works and lives out of town and we had just moved to Asheville; we found M7 very easy to work with - we mainly communicated by emails and phone calls. The outdoor setting is beautiful; we loved seeing guests wandering the property - down around the torch-lit fence in evening; everyone lraved about the some-mores around the campfire.

We cannot say enough about the great people at Crest! They basically made the whole process of wedding planning (at least the reception) less painful! They responded within hours of my (many) emails or phone calls. They were willing to work with my budget and get us exactly what we wanted...the chef even created our own dish. The service that night was outstanding and our guests said that it was the most amazing place they had every seen for a wedding reception. The views were spectacular, the food was on the spot, the drinks were great, and i didn't have to worry about a singe thing that night because my bridal attendant took care of everything. I would absolutely recommend this place to someone looking for the best place to have a reception in asheville!

My husband and I planned a destination wedding at The Crest Pavilion and were very pleased with the service and venue. The views were great and we had everything we wanted. The only issue I would have liked to have more flexibility on would have been the option to have food catered but I understand that is how they make money. We would certainly recommend this vendor. They were very organized and did a great job planning and coordinating the wedding. We were so glad we chose a company with so much experience!

Jennifer King at the Crest Center and Pavilion was great to work with. I was planning our wedding from out of town and she was great to work with over email, phone, and in person. She gave us a lot of good ideas as far as decor and menu. We used the chef on staff to cater our reception and got a lot of good comments on the food. We also used Mrs. B for our wedding cake, which turned out even prettier than the picture I sent and tasted great too! I highly recommend the Pavilion to anyone getting married in Asheville!

We got married at the Crest Center in August. The wedding site and reception were beautiful. The staff were kind and professional. We have no overall complaints about the wedding at all, which says a lot! The things I think they can improve on are: 1) communication pre-wedding. I know they do a lot of events but I was getting requests for guests list/dinner lists, etc in specific formats very close to my wedding. I already had this information compiled - and had to redo it because I did not know they needed a specific format. Not a huge deal but so close to the wedding, any small additional stress on a bride is a huge thing. While I did like our wedding coordinator for the day of, she had just returned from vacation and was a bit frazzled and not perfectly prepared for the day. The bridal party was getting ready/hanging out in a large bathroom before the ceremony. Unfortunately this was the same bathroom staff members were sending guests to pre-ceremony (even though there was another ladies restroom in the building - they had just not cleaned it yet). So many of our guests walked in us on getting ready pre-ceremony. It was wonderful that they provided the food as well, and it was good (not great, but good) All in all, I would say our wedding was wonderful - just a some of the smaller details that were overlooked were annoying!

Don't get me wrong...our wedding was gorgeous. It was the perfect backdrop for our ceremony, and the reception hall was exactly what we wanted. The problems arose in the people, not the venue itself. When we first came in the morning of my wedding, the tablecloths on the tables were horribly wrinkled. When we mentioned it, the woman said she didn't think she was supposed to iron them. Then she gave one of my sisters the iron, and they had to iron all the tablecloths!! Then later, when all of my groomsmen and (now) husband were standing at the gazebo waiting for us girls to come out, they were talking excitedly and the coordinator quickly hushed them. My husband said he felt insulted because it was his wedding, not a funeral, and he should be able to be excited. The Crest Center is a beautiful place, and if you go into it knowing how to handle the staff, then you might find that the experience is much more pleasant.

While the site is beautiful and we received nothing but compliments on our choice of venue, the price was not that great, they overcharge for a lot of items. They have their own catering, and the food was not that great, and you have to pay for the tasting as well. They do not allow you to bring in an outside catering company, but they do allow you to bring in other vendors. On the day of the wedding, they were not very helpful. We did have our own wedding director, but they also provided one as well who did not work well with ours. At the end of the night, their cleaning staff started throwing things away that belonged to us and our wedding planner. It was not worth the price we paid, but everyone did have a great time and the setting was gorgeous.

Our daughter held her April wedding reception at the Crest Center Pavilion. From planning to execution the staff were professional and delightful to work with. This was a destination wedding and the staff responded to all our communications during the planning process in a very timely manner. The food was delicious and served efficiently. All the service and bar staff were gracious and many of our guests commented on how well they were taken care of throughout the night. The wedding attendant made sure the bride and groom could enjoy themselves while she took care of directing the events of the evening. The setting was spectacular with a gorgeous spring sunset and view of the mountains. We would not hesitate to recommend the Crest Center for a wedding reception venue.
