Jason and Alleigh
Like so many great love stories, Jason and I met, fell in love, got engaged and aspired to have a wedding that would embody our love for each other. As an Asheville native, I was immediately drawn to the allure of the Crest Center to host this occasion. Jason, however, wanted to explore all options (as he does with many decisions)! After days of inspecting several venues, the Crest Center's stunning mountain views, ability to personalize the space, and expertise and professionalism of the staff made it stand out as the perfect place for our wedding.
Once the venue was chosen, the planning began. We had only six months to accomplish the daunting task of making my dream wedding come true. However, after meeting with our planner at The Crest Center, Amy Dewey, I realized that was more than enough time. With her knowledge and helpful guidance, the entire planning process was smooth, stress-free, and fun! The staff helped with everything from the menu, to the linens, to the timeline, and they helped me find the best vendors in the area.
I chose Tiffany's Baking Company for my cake, and she created a beautiful white wedding cake covered in edible lace that matched my dress as well as a groom's cake of an airplane because Jason is a NAVY pilot. Aaron Imaging and Red Leaf Films did a wonderful job capturing the essence of our wedding and the great times that were had. The DJ's from Sound Extreme did an exceptional job with the ceremony and reception music. They had our guests, of all ages, dancing all night long!
The Crest Center provided a bridal attendant, Tania, and an event captain, Tanya, who both helped execute our wedding timeline flawlessly. Tania was there throughout the entire day to help with everything from greeting our guests to the complicated bustle on my dress. Tanya was there to take care of everything from our floor plan to the excellent food and beverage service. The Chef at The Crest Center, Allen Dye, did a magnificent job on our menu. I am still hearing compliments on the food from our guests!
All in all, The Crest Center and Pavilion met and exceeded our high expectations and provided us with an unforgettable wedding experience. I wouldn't change a thing about our special day!
