Stacey at The Bloom Room was a joy to work with for reception decor. She instantly understood our vision and offered great options for accent flours to compliment our sunflower theme. Super friendly and easy to work with! She has a great team of assistants to make the vision come to life.

We hired Classic Event Rental to hang antique windows from beams at Crest Pavilion to display our table assignments. They were timely and professional during the planning process and work with the M7 catering team on a weekly basis so there was never a worry that something would go wrong.

Inn on Biltmore Estate is a 4 star, 4 diamond property and currently the only hotel on property for wedding guests to enjoy easy access to the wedding. The views are outstanding, and the food and staff were genuine and professional.

The Biltmore Estate has their own transportation shuttle service that can be organized for private events. During off hours of wedding festivities, the guests staying at the Inn were able to take the shuttles around property to enjoy the amenities.

Tamara Heston was wonderful to work with when planning our September wedding. She was extremely organized, very experienced and personable. She wanted to make our wedding magical and truly was a key factor in the planning process to make the whole weekend feel effortless.

Highly Recommend!

Pat Lance was our DJ, and he was a really run MC for the reception festivities. His website is easy to use and has an extensive database of music to choose from for all key moments of the reception. He even took a suggestion from my bridesmaids during the night so that we could have an impromptu girls dance.

Rachael is a very easy and enjoyable person to work with. She truly wants to get to know you so she can capture the essence of the couple in her photography. She listened to our ideas and brought them to life!

Highly Recommend!

Deerpark was a perfect venue for our rehearsal dinner. It has a rustic element we were looking for and the Inn on Biltmore floral staff created a magical floral display on our feasting tables. We were able to have a courtyard cocktail hour and following dinner inside, our guests enjoyed smores at a courtyard bonfire. The food and ambiance was wonderful, and our guests raved about it all weekend.

The food for both the reception and pre-ceremony h'ordeuvres were delicious and definitely a hit with our guests. We also organized a Sunday brunch at the Stable Cafe (next to the house) that was just the perfect way to end such a memorable weekend. Kudos to all of the Chefs that made our weekend wonderful!

Asheville Trolley was easy to work with and very hospitable. Our guests loved the aspect of riding on an old fashion trolley and because the wedding was still so nice, they even opened all the windows for fresh air. It was a great option to avoid guests from drinking/driving.

James did a wonderful job creating a romantic ambiance for the reception. He was well experienced and easy to talk to when trying to decide on key instrumentals. I would definitely recommend James for anyone looking for a solo guitarist.

Highly Recommend!

I choice this salon because Lemanda is my normal hairdresser. Lemana and her coworker were prompt and were able to come to my hotel to work on our hair (myself and 5 bridesmaids). She was open to my vision for my hair and did a great job recreating the picture I brought her.

The talented pastry chef Rachel at the Bistro created our wedding cake. We met with her 2 months before the wedding, and she did an impressing cake tasting. It was almost too hard to decide what flavors to choose. We brought her a few pictures of what we were imagining, and she created a beautiful (AND DELICIOUS) cake for our guests to enjoy.

We had our reception at Crest Pavilion (the bigger of the 2 reception facilities on Crest Mountain.) We shuttled our guests from hotels to the facility as it is tucked away from the main part of Asheville. Views were great (distant views of both Biltmore House and downtown Asheville). The food was good and the catering manager/chef worked with us on our ideas for unique and tasty food stations.

They were easy to work with and accommodating. Beautiful wedding locations! We enjoyed the whole wedding process with The Biltmore Estate. Our guests loved the opportunity to come on to the private property for the wedding and took great pictures!
