Our experience with Highgrove was absolutely amazing! (April 2018) The space is breathtaking, the food is incredible (including and especially the cake) and the staff is organized, responsive, happy, ... Read more helpful and take care of everything on your day, so you can enjoy yourself! I have so many good things to say but I think the best way to convey how wonderful this venue is, is to share my experience with you. On our first visit, it was a cold and nasty day in January and yet I was still in AWE over how stunning this venue this. When we left that day, we knew there was no use in looking for something better because we’d found the best. Once you book, the communication line is open and they are there to answer any questions in a timely manner. Our coordinator, Jill, as an absolute doll and so helpful. They will go over every single detail with you (some of which I hadn’t even thought of myself). You are invited to a tasting with other couples, which is a full blown party and dinner. The tasting gets you even more excited for the big day because you get to see the venue and staff live and in action! The week of our wedding, Jill had a family emergency and was unable to coordinate our day. Angela stepped in without a beat! I was so impressed at our rehearsal. I’m so used to being the one to have to take control and at Highgrove, you don’t have to be that person. She completely directed our rehearsal. She covered everything from reminding people not to chew gum to telling me where to pause when walking down the aisle. She was a breath of fresh air to me. Our wedding was a fairytale – and that’s the word most of our guests chose when they came up to rave about the wedding. Unlike our first visit, it was the most beautiful day it’s been all year! I’m not sure if people say this to all brides because I’ve only been a bride once, but I cannot even tell you how many people have told me that our wedding was the most beautiful wedding they’ve ever been to.

Hands down....the best venue!

This venue is hands-down, amazing! Our coordinator, Jill, was so wonderful and prepared us well for our big day. Our guests could not stop raving on how beautiful the venue was, stating that they felt ... Read more felt like they were in Asheville, NC with the backdrop for the ceremony. They also commented that the food was delicious. Jill was so structured, creating an agenda of our day (down to the minute) so we could visualize the flow. She spent over an hour the day before rehearsing with our wedding party. She was amazing during the wedding, ensuring our wedding party had drinks, always knew the next event and timing. I can't say enough great things about this venue and their staff!
