  • The Crest Center & Pavilion was a dream come true!! From the very first email to the very last, these ladies did everything they could to make me happy and excited for my big day. Honestly, I am SAD I won't be able to talk to Mary and Amy every week :( They were the absolute best and genuinely interested in YOU and your big day! Just a few things that made my experience spectacular -- 1. Responsive - I was planning a wedding from out of town, and the team was extremely responsive! They responded with clarity and excitement to all of my 100s of emails. 2. THE VIEWS are absolutely stunning! 3. Indoors - I wanted beautiful views for my wedding reception, but I am not risky enough to do something completely outdoors - The Center and Pavilion are both indoors :) I found this to be very unique for Asheville. 4. Reasonable & fair - All in all, I felt that I was getting a great value for my big day, especially considering the location & service! 5. Flexibility - The Crest team a... Read more

  • I have worked with the Crest Center & Pavilion many many times over the years. Our roster of bands and musicians love performing there and the clients are always thrilled. The Crest Center & Pavilion has impeccable expertise, attentiveness to detail, customer service and communications. It is an astoundingly gorgeous venue, perfect for live entertainment with a built in stage and a one stop shop for your mountain view ceremony and lovely covered yet open air Pavilion for a reception.

  • Our daughter got married this past weekend at The Crest Center & Pavilion with the wedding outside between the two facilities overlooking the mountains. From our first visit, the staff could not have been more helpful and accommodating. We are from South Carolina and having M7 handle all of the details prior to our date made this experience easy on us. The day of the wedding the staff was there to take care of everything. Our job was to enjoy the moment and evening. The views were great, the food was great and the setting was perfect. The Pavilion at night with the lighting is spectacular. Thank you M7 for making this a wonderful experience.

  • I have nothing but phenomenal things to say about The Crest Center and the staff that works there. The Crest Center was the first venue we toured and took our breath away. We were initially interested in the Pavilion but ended up using the Crest Center since our party was smaller and we absolutely loved it. Being at the top of the mountain, the views around the property are awe inspiring. Not many venues in Asheville have that kind of view. One of the perks with the Crest Center is there is no need for outside catering. The food was fresh, delicious and plentiful! We worked with Amy and Mary and both ladies were wonderful. They were easy to communicate with, friendly, helpful and made us feel important, as if we were part of the Crest family. Amy was especially incredible as she worked with us to postpone our wedding due to COVID. I had heard some horror stories from other weddings, but Amy worked with us to make sure we still had a wedding without any penalties. They accommodated ev... Read more

  • The Crest Center is hands down the best wedding venue in the Asheville area!! Everyone who works there is highly professional & will do everything they can to make sure that your wedding day is perfect! All of my guests were gushing about how beautiful the venue was, how delicious all of the food was, and how much fun they had! I was planning this wedding from out of town and toured every venue in Asheville who claimed to have a mountain view, and The Crest Center was hands down the best. From the minute we walked in, I knew without a doubt it was where we had to have our wedding. It was also the closest to downtown Asheville, which was incredibly convenient for all of my guests who wanted to uber to/from the venue. We did not need to hire a wedding planner or a coordinator. The Crest Center walked me through each step of the process & made sure we thought of everything we would need! They also include a day-of bridal attendant in the cost, who takes care of the rehearsal & any... Read more

  • Perfect. That is the best word to describe our entire experience starting with meeting with the Crest staff, planning the menu, setup, right down to our wedding day! I was upset the day before because we knew it would rain the day of our wedding. When I arrived at the Crest Center that day I teared up because I was so amazed. They knew exactly what I wanted and they made it happen exactly as I had pictured in my head - I forgot all about the rain! Amy, Mary, Lauren, Kaila, Shannon...we can’t thank you enough for making our wedding everything we dreamed!

  • “Perfect,” is an understatement! From the beginning, the staff was personable, flexible and attentive. They did a fabulous job with everything and they quickly put all of my bridal anxiety to rest on the big day, making sure that everything ran smoothly and all of the guests were attended to. Apart from the outstanding service, the Crest Center itself is gorgeous and the location is amazing!

  • There are not enough words to express how thankful I am for The Crest Center and Pavilion. Amy, Mary, and Brooke were so supportive, encouraging, and by my side the entire time while I was trying to plan a wedding during COVID-19. They were the calm to my storm when I was stressed and overwhelmed with changes that kept happening due to the pandemic. Without them, I wouldn't have been able to have the wedding of my dreams, and for that, I will forever be thankful for them. If you are looking for a venue that provides indoor and outdoor areas for both a ceremony and reception, book them. They are hands down the best venue in the area that provides enough space, parking, on site catering, and stunning views of the mountains while only being 10 min from downtown Asheville!

    Taryn!!! We absolutely adore you and your mom, Amy, and we will have so much fun planning out all of your wedding day ideas! I am so glad you decided to work with us - we want you to feel like family anytime you're here with us on Crest Mountain! You'll have to come pop in for lunch one day when you're down visiting mom from DC. :-) Thank you so much for the kind words - they mean the WORLD to us!

  • Lauren, Mary, Amy, Rachel and the Crest Center staff were a dream to work with. They made everything run so smoothly from day one. Lauren helped us so much and answered SO many emails from us. She gave us great advices and helped us stay on top of things. Mary is also the best and was so patient when we had to leave our decor at the venue until next day, since we forgot our car keys. Rachel was my bridal attendant and basically my "day of" angel. She was so good at gathering our bridal party, coordinating everything, keeping us on schedule, and solving problems before I could realize they happened. I had planned my special drink with a blackberry jam I had made at home. Of course I didn’t bring the jam the day of the wedding and Rachel got with my bridesmaids to find someone to buy blackberries. The bartender figured out a way to do something similar to what I had planned. Having Rachel allowed me to relax and not sweat the small stuff. She also kept my wine glass full and fixed us a...

  • The staff at Crest Pavilion was a delight to work with. Mary, Amy, and Lauren were truly the Dream Team and I can’t say enough wonderful things about them! Just to paint the picture I booked the venue when I was living in San Francisco and I moved to Chicago all while planning a wedding in Asheville, NC. Destination wedding planning might seem daunting to most, but they are SO responsive and will answer your questions with such detail that it won’t matter where you are! I even did a FaceTime with Mary when I had questions regarding the layout. I am such a detailed oriented person that usually likes to have complete control over every aspect, but they were able to work with my every need whether it was budget, creative, capacity concerns, etc. Pinterest boards are overwhelming but they understood my aesthetic and on the day of my wedding I had tears in my eyes and will never forget walking into the bohemian dream- they were able to pull it off! They went above and beyond my e... Read more

  • I cannot say enough good things about this venue. Reasons I initially chose them: 1. They were one of the more reasonable ones in terms of pricing and what their package included... 2. The place is just gorgeous on its own... I am not a big decorator so I wanted somewhere that wouldn't need a ton of decorating to look nice... 3. They were super responsive from the very beginning (and continued to be until the day of the wedding). Never did I wait more than a couple hours for a response from them! Super helpful when planning and you have many questions. Reasons that I am so glad that I did go with them: 1. They are sooooo helpful with anything and everything. They will go out of their way to be flexible and help you to have the day of your dreams. I of course changed my mind on many things throughout the process and they would just fixed the contract/timeline and got it back to me. Everything was simple with them. I think it's because they do this so much and just have the s... Read more

  • We got married at the Crest Pavilion in June 2019 and were extremely happy with the Crest Pavilion and M7 Events. The Crest Pavilion is a gorgeous place to host a wedding. The view of the mountains is terrific, providing a beautiful backdrop for the wedding ceremony. The pavilion has ample room inside for large group, with a wide stage, and a beautiful ceiling decorated with string lights. Together these make for a magical evening and plenty of great picture opportunities. M7 Events has hosted a lot of weddings, and it shows with how smoothly the event went. Leading up to the wedding, Amy and Lauren were always professional and helpful with answering our numerous questions, providing recommendations for what to do on the wedding day, and modifying the layout and contract as the number of attendees changed. On the actual wedding day, our wedding day coordinator Alla, did an amazing job of coordinating the various vendors and keeping us on track with our schedule. We were p... Read more

    Sarah, You and Stephane were an absolute pleasure to plan with and host! This review, being so detailed and insightful, is so very appreciated and helpful for new clients. And it also reminds us just how much the little courtesies matter when executing such an important day in two people's lives! Hearing that our staff took care of the show and allowed you to sit back and enjoy your reception - this is our highest priority and I love hearing we rose to the occasion! We wish you two a beautiful life together and send our love your way! :) - Team M7 at The Crest Pavilion

  • The Crest Center was an amazing turnkey venue will excellent staff, planners, and chefs. My now wife and I were completely blown away by the level of professionalism and attention to detail offered. Throughout our reception and the days after I received raving reviews from our guests about the decor, view, and food. Additionally the planning staff was outstanding to work with while planning the wedding out of state. In the few circumstances that I needed extra clarification or coordination with the planners I never waited longer than a day for a reply and solution. Once the event was underway I completely confident with the staff's execution. I believe that booking the Crest Center was a one of the best decisions we made for our special day. I highly recommend the venue to anyone looking for a stunning atmosphere, outstanding support, and beautiful event.
