111 The Crest Center and Pavilion Reviews
Married on 05/25/2018
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 ... Read more 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! Our guests went out of their way to tell us repeatedly how incredible it was. Their Chef was an absolute delight and it's obvious that he puts a lot of love into the food he serves. We would choose Crest again in a heartbeat.

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 ... Read more 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 particularly touched by her attention to detail, putting together last minute details, ensuring we had time to eat, and ensuring our favorite drink was always available. Alla took care of running the show so we could relax and enjoy the event. Food from the venue was delicious. We had done the food tasting with the venue a couple months earlier to help us select food that was not only tasty but also would make the most sense for what we had in mind. The venue allowed us to bring our own wine (with corkage fee) and have them pre-order beer from the many breweries in the asheville area for the drinks that were to be served. There was enough food and drinks for everyone. A few quick tips: Ask for input regarding the hors d’oeuvres. Some are easier to eat for cocktail hour than others. M7 Events partners with SoundExtreme. We were extremely happy with Sandy as the MC/DJ. M7 Events is upfront with this, but keep in mind that any additions to the base package (such as food tasting, linens, or additional rentals) will incur additional fees, which can add up fairly quickly. During the rehearsal, it was helpful to hear suggestions from the day-of coordinator to ensure the day flowed more smoothly. Alla had great advice from past experience which improved the wedding.
