  • Covid brides listen up! Your dream wedding can still happen with every beautiful detail you have been imagining. I got married on 7/11/20 and as I'm sure all of you know planning was STRESSFUL. I was trying to do everything by myself and had multiple vendors cancel on me. I thought I was going to have to cancel my wedding but sent a last minute email to Chestnut Ridge praying they would be able to help me out... Let me tell you, my prayers were answered! I talked to the owner, Taylor, on the phone and she was so sweet and understanding of all the stress I had been going through with Covid. She invited my fiancé and I to come and take a tour. Needless to say we were absolutely blown away by all of the natural beauty CR has to offer! Maloree was assigned to be my wedding planner and immediately I knew I (FINALLY) didn't have to stress any longer. Maloree was so on top of everything and I got to relax, pop the champagne and soak in all of the beautiful dreams that were coming to life. Wh... Read more

  • HOLY MOLY where do I begin- first and foremost the team at CR was absolutely wonderful to work with. They are extremely professional and truly put all of your wedding dreams together to make the perfect day. Taylor was such a sweetheart to work with from day one. As a COVID bride who had to push back our wedding 6 days before our original date, I thought this would be a nightmare, however, Taylor and her team actually found dates that worked for every single one of my vendors for a new date. The venue was absolutely gorgeous and I highly suggest using their decor closet for your big day. I truly felt like a guest at my own wedding and the stress of wedding planning was taken away with everything being included at the venue. It's a truly jaw dropping venue and was designed to perfection down to the bridal suite and the grooms den. We had the best experience and had so many compliments from our wedding guests. I cannot recommend them enough and am so thankful that my husband and I got to... Read more

  • Chestnut Ridge is truly the perfect venue! When I got engaged I knew I wanted to get married in my hometown in Canton. From the moment I laid eyes on Chestnut Ridge I was smitten. The chapel is gorgeous - those windows at the front! The porch, back patio, and grounds are stunning. And the event barn is beyond perfect - from the wooden beams and fireplaces, to the farmhouse tables, to the amazing bar area, to the beautiful and comfortable bride and groom suites. Taylor has truly thought of everything! Here team is wonderful to work with and is accommodating - they did everything they could to make our family happy! Our big day was truly perfect. We couldn't ask for a better venue!

  • We knew as soon as we saw CR online that it would be our wedding venue, and seeing it in person for the first time was unbelievable. Even undecorated, it is breathtaking, and seeing it for the first time with our vision brought to life brought tears to my eyes. Besides it being the most beautiful venue ever, Taylor, one of the CR owners, makes you feel like family throughout the whole wedding process, and even afterwards. She is so kind and organized, which is such a blessing during wedding planning. Every space at the venue is wonderful and accommodating to any wedding size and any wedding vision. Our day was better than I ever could've imagined it, and I am so thankful we picked CR!!

  • We wish we could give Chestnut Ridge more than 5 stars. From the moment we got engaged we knew we wanted to get married in the Asheville area. We researched venues and Chestnut Ridge was the first on our list. As soon as we pulled up to the venue, we knew this would be the place we would get married. The views of the mountains are breathtaking. The venue alone doesn’t even need to be decorated for a wedding because it is that beautiful. You can tell that Taylor did a lot of research when building her venue. Besides the venue, Taylor has put together the best team of preferred vendors. They made planning an out of town wedding so easy. They were always available to answer any questions that we had. They also post so much on social media which was very helpful to get ideas and make decisions on what I wanted when planning the wedding since I was not local. All of our guests said it was the most amazing venue and wedding they have ever been to. They made sure every detail was taken care... Read more

  • Where do I begin? Chestnut Ridge was a dream venue for us — between the beautiful property and view, their recommended vendors to the owners, we couldn’t have asked for more. From my very first conversation with the owner, Taylor, I knew this was the place we would choose. She and her team were a delight to work with, going above and beyond our expectations. They thought of every tiny detail when creating this venue, and it shows! Thank you so so so much! -Jenna & Ross

  • My husband and I recently got married at Chestnut Ridge and let me tell you- zero regrets! We originally booked this venue while traveling to our home in NYC. We literally FaceTimed Taylor, the venue owner, and said YES without seeing anything in person. Some people thought we were crazy, but we figured if we loved it this much via FaceTime, in person would only be ten times better. It did NOT disappoint. We had 150 guests attend our wedding from out of state and I can’t tell you how many people said “it was like a fairytale.” I also would recommend to anyone and everyone the all inclusive package, or at least to use ALL of the preferred vendors from CR. They truly made every part of the day come to life and they all work so well together. By the time our wedding day rolled around, we both really felt like our “friends” helped pull off our dream wedding after getting to know all of them the past two years. Whether it was Taylor, the venue owner, helping my MOH get a... Read more

    Oh my soul! You guys are just the sweetest! We could not image a more wonderful couple that deserves that absolute W O R L D on their wedding day. We're so thankful that you chose CR, and so thankful to now call you friends. You will always have a special place at CR

  • Taylor has really outdone herself - this venue is nothing shy of perfection! Nestled up right outside of Asheville, NC - we found our DREAM wedding venue. There was not one detail that went unnoticed when crafting CR. When working with Taylor and the Chestnut Ridge family, our wedding day vision became a reality! The very first time we had seen the venue - it was pouring down rain. Even with the less than ideal weather, we fell in love! We knew in that moment that if we loved the venue this much on a rainy day, that a warm fall day would be out of this world.  We loved the fact that the girls were spoiled in the Bridal Suite, that allowed us to have our own BEAUTIFUL space to relax and get ready in, while the boys enjoyed the Groom's Den after they participated in Shoot Skeeting on site that morning. The ceremony pavilion gives the feel of a chapel with the gorgeous pews, and is so simple, yet elegantly crafted. The cocktail hour and back patio are perfect spots for guests to e... Read more

  • Beyond just being a breathtakingly gorgeous location, the entire staff at CR went out of their way to make every detail absolutely perfect for our wedding. The ceremony space and reception hall were unreal in how awesome they were. This was the perfect place for us to get married and we couldn't have asked for a better everything on that day.

  • Everything about this venue is amazing! Taylor was so helpful during the planning process and the day of the wedding. She and her family have built the perfect venue. The girls started off their day in the beautiful bridal suite and the guys went skeet shooting on the property. The views and reception space are truly breathtaking.

    Thank you so much Danielle! You all were such a fun group, and you were an absolutely stunning bride. So much fun working with you and your family. We wish you a lifetime of happiness as Mr. & Mrs.!

  • Is it possible to give 6 stars? I can't think of a more perfect location to look back on when thinking of our wedding weekend. Every single guest was wowed by the picturesque views and the beautiful details of the Chestnut Ridge. The Greggs have really thought of everything! Taylor made my big day so special and was a literal SAINT having to deal with some post-event items we left behind. Above and beyond doesn't cover it. Thank you thank you thank you... let's do it again for our 5th Anniversary?!

    You are the best Amanda, and we’re so thankful we got to share in your special day. It was a total blast, and we couldn’t be more happy for you both. And, yes to the 5 year anniversary party!! Woohoo!

  • Taylor and Maloree are in a word, unbelievable. Their professionalism, attention to detail, and expertise left me and my husband in awe. I can't begin to say enough about what they did for us and the level they went to in order to make our day so special. Maloree took care of every little detail and made everything look even more gorgeous than it already does. We barely even had to contact our vendors - she really takes care of EVERYTHING. The venue itself is breathtaking and White Magnolia Planning has everything you could possibly need on site. We HIGHLY recommend Chestnut Ridge. Thank you Taylor and Maloree for truly making our wedding day the best day of our lives and every day leading up to it a breeze. We are so so grateful!

  • My husband and I wanted a destination wedding in Asheville, and the minute we arrived at the top of the mountain and saw Chestnut Ridge, we knew it was were we meant to get married. Aside from the beauty of the Chestnut Ridge, it has so much to offer. Taylor and her husband built this venue with love and paid attention to every single detail with brides and grooms in mind. With this being a destination wedding it was so helpful to have a venue that had a decor closet, because we didn't have to pack up decorations and bring to Asheville. Hands down, the best part of CR was the people. Taylor and her team were always responsive and thinking about things that I would never think of. In the 14 months of planning, there wasn't one time I felt overwhelmed or stressed, because Taylor had it covered. We did the all-inclusive package and I think every bride needs this! CR and the vendors have such a strong network that we never worried about the communication/coordination between them all.... Read more

  • Our wedding was absolutely amazing due to an amazing team that was super hands on and helpful through the entire experience. Also, the views are SPECTACULAR! Our guests still cannot get over how gorgeous the venue and the view. This is listed as a farm/barn type of venue but it is way more than that as it has so much elegance and beauty that you don't even consider this a "barn". If you want to wow your guests then this is the venue to pick!

  • Chestnut Ridge is a beautiful venue, unfortunately that is it. You are paying for the barn, tables and chairs. It was brought to my attention from a guest at the wedding there were some dirty chairs which was very disappointing to us. What you’re not getting with this venue is any sort of communication. We booked with Chestnut Ridge in June of 2018, after booking there were many changes which were not communicated to us. These included no longer offering fireworks to more than 1 bride a month. We were very disappointing to learn this as we were looking forward to the traditional fireworks, instead we were able to use the fountain fireworks. The fountain fireworks were also beautiful but not what we had originally hoped for. After booking the venue, they had sent us home with recommendations for vendors which we choose including our rental company. We had signed a contract and put a deposit down for us to learn at our 60 day walk through from our planner that Taylor now charges a fee ... Read more

    Thanks so much for choosing to have your wedding at Chestnut Ridge. Everything was absolutely beautiful, and we enjoyed being a part of it. We are sincerely sorry that your perception of your special day resulted in this review. We do feel like it very important to receive and improve upon any feedback that we receive from our couples, their families, and guests but since your review specifically contradicts all of our other couples’ feedback from previous reviews, we felt it was important to respond. Just to touch on a few of your concerns: Our seat cushions are checked prior to every event, and we hand wash them as needed. If anyone feels they’re unsatisfactory we are always happy to personally clean and/or replace them with our available backup supply. We understand your concern re: changing policies; new policies only effect new contracts signed which is why you were never charged for items/changes you mentioned. Anything listed and signed for in a contract is honored and always has been. All of our updates are communicated in our Client Lounge located on the CR Access page making this open to all of our existing brides at all times with the most up-to-date and correct information. The discetion of Display Fireworks are totally out of our control and at the discretion of the County Commissions. We do every effort to accommodate all show requests, and if Display Fireworks are not available we offer Fountain Fireworks which is what you received. As for adjustments to your overall rental order, your 60-day walkthrough with your planner should drive any changes and adjustments to this so this would not be in the scope of the Venue responsibilities. Taylor worked your entire wedding day from 8:30am until well after midnight and made several personal appearances in the suite delivering breakfast buffet, lunch delivery, and checking in numerous times all while being respectful of the privacy of the suites to you and your friends. Taylor also completed the entire set-up of outside furniture, linens, and décor to the ceremony pavilion all while adjusted for overall weather concerns as they related to outside layout needs, tending to vendor requests throughout the entire night, and ensuring overall cleanliness and upkeep of the venue grounds the entire evening (bathrooms, trash, spills, etc). She also personally oversaw the timing of the fountain fireworks in coordinating your entire exit with the photographer and your get-away vehicles. Your wedding was featured with over 18 photos/~12 slides on our Instagram stories as we wanted to highlight the beautiful day that it was. Any outstanding final payment should be paid 14 days prior to the event. Coordination with the rentals through your Planner caused a delay in that resulting in you agreeing to bring payment on rehearsal day. When that payment was not received, we had no choice but to collect on wedding day. This is never our intent and we would never purposefully create this situation. Walk-throughs are not allowed on wedding days, but tours and rehearsals for next-day weddings are. All Tours are kept out of private areas, and all rehearsals are centralized at their rehearsal location (generally the separate building at the ceremony pavilion). Just as you were honored a rehearsal, we must also honor a rehearsal for other couples per our contract terms. We respect your feedback and regret that you feel this way. We did our very best to serve you after all of our efforts of accommodations, exceptions, waiving fees, wedding day features, and extensive communication (90+ emails). We consider your day beautiful, and never understood there to be any level of concern until this review. Congrats again on becoming Mr. + Mrs.!
