  • We had our reception at the Crest Center (main building) and everyone really enjoyed it! Leading up to the event, the staff were really great - they were very responsive over email, we had a wonderful time at the tasting (the chef let us come back to try a different meat we were worried about), food was great, and were very accommodating throughout the whole process. I would absolutely recommend the crest center, however, will advise that it gets extremely hot in the venue - I asked for them to cool it down but didn't feel any difference and my guests along the windows had to wear sunglasses during sunset. People didn't drink much because it was so warm and bar got backed up. I hope they figure out how to get better air conditioning in the place, because with that it would have been perfect! Luckily, we had a cool night so would recommend spring/fall dates to help with the heat.

    We absolutely loved bringing your wedding day vision to life, Alyse! And we were happy to have you back to taste additional dinner options - the food is SUCH an important part of your reception, and I'm so glad we could prepare a delicious spread that everyone enjoyed! We also appreciate your feedback too - it can only help us improve for clients in the future! :-) Congratulations to you & Garnett on this next chapter in your lives! -Team M7

  • We are very pleased with our decision to get married at the Crest Center. It is apparent that Amy and her team have been doing this a long time! They were extremely organized, professional, and responsive (even to the silliest of questions from me- a stressed bride). Not to mention, they were all so friendly! Our day-of coordinator and event manager were excellent and kept everything under control, allowing us to enjoy the day without having to worry. Everything went so smoothly! Our guests raved about the view AND the food! We were happy to have flexibility with food choices and our bar choices. Overall, an AWESOME place to get married! Thank you so much!

    We love that you shared those gorgeous photos with us, Brittany!!! The tinted up-lighting really just made your color palate & the room just POP! Not to mention, a beautiful couple celebrating their love helps too... :-) Thank you so much for the kind words - it means so much to all of our staff that we were able to exceed your expectations for the perfect wedding day. Best Wishes!! -Team M7

  • I am so happy we chose The Crest Center for the place to have our wedding! The view from there is gorgeous! When I first stepped into The Crest Center I knew that was the place I wanted to get married in. I really appreciated how professional and welcoming the staff was. They were really quick to respond to my questions and very flexible to my last minute changes. They truly wanted to make sure our day was exactly want we wanted. The day of the wedding went so smoothly thanks to the bridal attendants and event manger. I don't know what I would have done without them. They made sure that we were well taken care of and having a good time. At the same time they made sure that everything went according to what we had planned. I highly recommend The Crest Center for not only being such a beautiful venue but also for the wonderful staff that will make sure to make your dream wedding a reality!

    Thank you so much for the kind & thoughtful review, Arlyn!!

  • Choosing to have my wedding with M7 at the Crest Center was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I could not have asked for a better group of professionals. They seriously know their stuff! Every person I spoke with was friendly and reassuring. We planned mostly over the phone and emails since I live in Wisconsin. It was a worry of mine that miscommunications might happen, but everything was well-organized, incredibly solid, and we were all on the same page throughout the whole process. The big day went off without a hitch - I can't think of a single thing that went wrong! I had several of my friends and family come up to me afterwards telling me it was the best wedding they had ever been to. Thanks to them my wedding day was my dreams made reality. I felt like a princess and the Crest Center was the perfect fairy-tale setting to add to that feeling. If you want to get married in Asheville (or in general!), this is definitely the place to do so!

    David & Christa - from hearing the heart-warming story of how you two fell in love, to seeing you both say "I do" in front of family & friends, we absolutely loved making magic happen on your wedding day with us at The Crest Center! It really was a pleasure working with such a sweet couple - and we wish you a lifetime of happiness together! Thank you so much for the kind review; your words make our hearts sing!! :-) - Team M7

  • The Crest Center and Pavilion was the most beautiful venue to have our wedding. All of the event staff and M7 event cooridnators made the wedding planning process so smooth and easy. They helped our vision come alive and gave us the most beautiful setting to gather friends and family. We were married on the lawn behind the Pavilion and held our reception inside the Pavilion. Our guests still have not stopped talking about the views, food, and overall feeling of the whole night. If you are looking for a scenic outdoor wedding in the mountains, I cannot recommend The Crest Center enough.

    Patty & Pep - we totally miss you guys already!! We really loved planning with you & your mom, Patty; you all were a hoot! :-) Your wedding dress was SO unique and flattering, and the videography from the big day seriously moves us all to tears. AND the adorable Peppermint Patty party favors?! Too freakin' cute. I am so happy we could help bring your dream wedding day to life!! Best wishes on your journey together throughout married life!

  • I can not thank everyone at the Crest Center and M7 event solutions enough! We had an absolutely perfect wedding and reception! Our ceremony was held on the overlook deck and it was the perfect backdrop! The staff was so easy to work with and everything was handled professionally and perfectly! All of our guests have raved about how amazing the staff, venue, food, and everything was! We will recommend the Crest Center to anyone and everyone! We truly thank you guys from the bottom of our hearts!

    Eddie & Amanda, where to begin... we just LOVE your love for each other! It really shined on your big day together (and a couple of us working the event may have teared up at how beautiful your ceremony was!). You guys rock - and are hilarious!! Thank you for being such a down to earth, genuine couple to work with. :) We are so thankful to have had the chance to get to know you and help create the wedding of your dreams!

  • The Crest Center & Pavilion was the perfect venue for our 5/27 wedding. We wanted a venue that would be private, with an outdoor space for our ceremony and "blank slate" indoor space for our reception, and Crest checked all of the boxes! The views from the Crest Pavilion lawn are absolutely gorgeous and the stone deck provides a perfect spot for cocktail hour, separate from the main reception space. The Pavilion itself has beautiful bones that can be transformed into any style of reception. We opted for a modern, whimsical feel with fabric draping and suspended light fixtures, and it turned out just spectacular. Amy and Lauren were a delight to work with. They are super organized, responsive, and went above and beyond to ensure all of our concerns were taken care of. I was super particular about the details of pretty much every aspect of our day, and they were never dismissive and worked with me to make sure everything was just right. The food was also out of this world great! O... Read more

    Hi Mary!! Memorial Day Weekend 2018 was really quite magical, wasn’t it?! I am so happy that we had the chance to help execute your vision for the perfect wedding day from the ground up – soft & flowing elegance in Ivory. We love those pictures of your BEAUTIFUL head table décor… just WOW! Can’t wait to see more! :) And we love Chef Allen Dye around here!

  • We had our wedding this past weekend and it was beyond our expectations! From the start the M7 Team that comes with this venue has been amazing. We could not have planned this without them. They are extremely professional and made the wedding planning process fun and stress free. We planned our wedding from a few hours away meeting with the team once to pick out the venue and an additional time to set wedding details. They never once made me feel like I was a burden when I would email them asking questions, and instead they would respond that day often times with many recommendations for vendors etc depending on the questions. They had us fill out a survey at the beginning and sent us a detailed budget of what it would look like if we selected them. I loved that! We came in almost exact on the final number. Emily was our bridal attendant and she was great as well! The Crest Center views are amazing, and the inside is gorgeous needing minimal decorations. They also never tried to upscal... Read more

  • We recently had our reception at the Crest Center Pavilion. This group of women was incredibly kind throughout the 7 months we worked with them. From the beginning, they were invested in our planning process and genuinely excited for us. They are very responsive, often answering all questions same day, if not within a few hours. The day before the wedding, we brought things to unload and Mary walked right up to the car to help unload our boxes with us. So sweet and helpful! The property is perfect for an Asheville wedding with the mountain feel, especially if you're trying to keep it close to downtown. Most of the other venues with good mountain views were a far drive away. The patio is great for cocktail hour. The large built in stage makes the music environment more fun for a reception too. The downside is no AC in the pavilion... it will get very hot. If the temperature comes down enough outside though, the open windows help cool it off. They did not nickel and dime us on ev...

    These sweet words mean so much to us, Weston!! You were such a detail-oriented bride, and we just loved it! And I was totally happy to help your family unload the reception decor - team work makes the dream work, right?! :-) Your handmade greenery wall was such an elegant & unique addition to welcome your guests, too! Best wishes to a happily married life together! -Team M7

  • We loved having our wedding reception at the Crest Pavilion in April 2018. The views were amazing, all our guests commented on how beautiful the space was. From the very beginning of the planning process, they were accommodating of our schedules ,as we look multiple tours of the place. Amy, Lauren have been great to work with throughout this process, I liked how responsive they were to my email queries. Their rental services make it easier to want to add special pieces/décor to the wedding. They worked well with my day of coordinator and our other vendors, to give us a great wedding day! The food was amazing, our guests are still talking about the appetizers from cocktail hour! Thank you to the M7 team for a smooth planning and on-point execution of our wedding reception.

    If you can imagine a couple who is just head over heels in love with each other, it’s Shalom & Relin! Thank you so much for the kind words! :) Our hors d’oeuvres are super tasty, right?! We really enjoyed the planning process with you both, as well! And that perfect shot of you two outside with the moon shining through the sunset… man, what a gorgeous picture to perfectly capture the mood of the evening. Wishing you guys the absolute best, - Team M7

  • The Crest Pavilion is an AMAZING place to have your wedding reception! As MOH to my sister's wedding last month, we had nothing but the BEST experience with The Crest throughout the entire process! My sister and her husband were attracted to The Crest mostly because of the incredible panoramic views of the mountains! The scenery is one of the pavilion's best features. The wrap-around terrance (with bar and fireplace) is awesome for pictures as well! NOTE: My sister's style is very elegant, soft and vintage. However, the room is very industrial looking with all the steal and metal bars, and some people might over look this venue because they can't invision anything else. The Crest assured us that it could be transformed into our vision (with the help of our florist). The end result was unbelievable. The place looked magical! BRIDE'S--I planned my sister's wedding, so I know how hard and stressful it can be to find a venue that checks all the boxes. This place does! They treat you as ... Read more

    Rebecca - you should win the award for best Maid of Honor ever with all the love and dedication you put into planning Amanda's wedding with us!!! We loved how detail oriented you were during the entire process! Thank you so much for the thoughtful & honest review! We are so happy that we were able to transform the Crest Pavilion into the elegant vision imagined for your sister's big day; with the sheer fabric drapery lining the ceilings and those gorgeous crystal chandeliers, to say the venue looked incredible would be an understatement!! I know for a fact that Lauren really appreciated your kind words, as well. :) Best wishes to you & your family! -Team M7
