"We wanted a January wedding reception that captured the mountain feel of Asheville, and the Crest Pavilion was perfect. The mountain views, the stone pillars and outdoor terrace, plus the twinkling lights, created an elegant atmosphere wth plenty of space for dining and dancing. The Crest Center's extraordinary staff, Kathryn and Amy, made it easy to plan a large reception from out-of-town, offering helpful and experienced guidance on the menu and the vendors, and working within our budget. Our family and friends were knocked out by the wonderful food -- the presentation and service were impeccable. From the moment we arrived at the reception, we relaxed and enjoyed ourselves, knowing the Crest Center had all the details under control. I didn't expect a perfect reception, but that's what we had."
