  • What a blast!  We could not have asked for a more perfect place to call in the love, welcome our friends and family, and make our commitment to each other.  Both of our families felt so at home here.  Thank you for having us in your home, for rolling with the punches and bringing such genuine love and support to the process.  We look forward to some anniversaries up in the hot tub at Earthberm House.

  • My wedding at Brahma Ridge was everything I could have ever wished for. Finding this gorgeous property tucked away in the mountains made my wedding  feel so special and unique. I loved working with Holly and Rob on every detail. So many of the venues that I looked at requested you use their selected vendors, or had lists of requirements. Holly and Rob allowed me to choose every detail of my wedding day on my own and I really got to customize a wedding that was specifically tailored to me and my husband. My creativity was never stifled at Brahma Ridge and I was able to create the wedding of my dreams on my budget!

    Holly answered every single one of my e-mails right away, she met with us on site on multiple occasions, she had all of our cell phone numbers and called any time there was a change or a new consideration. She was available for us at the drop of a hat and could not have been easier to work with. We rented out every house on their property for the weekend so that family coming from out of town would have somewhere to stay. The houses were beautiful, well maintained, and our guests were able to walk home after the reception! We even had our rehearsal dinner at Earthberm House and it was great. We just popped up to the house after the rehearsal and we had an incredible view of the mountains and plenty of room for over 60 guests.

    Holly and Rob were so wonderful and accommodating- they not only met my needs and requests but also the the needs and requests of my husband, my parents, and my in-laws. To walk away from a wedding with all six of us very happy was quite exciting. I know all of us would recommend this venue to anyone asking for a beautiful and stress-free wedding experience.

  • Our wedding was honestly the best day of our lives thanks to Brahma Ridge and all our friends and family.  Brahma Ridge is such a magical place, and now holds a special place in our hearts.  Rob and I got married there on Sept 13th, 2008.  We spent the whole weekend at Brahma Ridge with family and friends.  The minute we stepped on the beautiful property to have a tour, we knew that this must be the place!!  This was the only venue we looked at, and we knew it was the one for us.  We both love nature and absolutely loved the space.  We had the freedom to bring in our own catering etc, but also had a lot of the major details worked out by Holly.  Holly and her staff are great hosts and truly will do anything to help you along the way!  We definitely had a budget and still had the wedding of our dreams. The guests at our wedding keep complimenting us on our wedding and how unique and beautiful it was.  A lot of our friends and family stayed on property, which was very convenient.  We had our rehearsal dinner in the Earthberm House, which was very cozy and accommodating.  Rob and I spent our evenings in the Catwalk Cabin which is a very sweet place.  We now have such wonderful memories of this very special place that will forever live in our hearts. This venue is Asheville’s best kept secret!  Go check it out and you will see for yourself!

  • Ariel & Anthony’s September wedding was just about perfect, and your resourcefulness and responsiveness played a major role in that as we worked through the details of the ceremony, reception, and the invasion of family and bridal party in all three houses! For me as MOB and planning from another state, I was uneasy about things unseen, but your openness, humor and warmth just eased my mind and gave me confidence that Ariel had indeed found the ideal place for her wedding. You know how to make a wedding work, you know how to work with the bride to make her dreams reality, and you create a very positive atmosphere in which everyone can enjoy the beauty of Brahma Ridge and the opportunity to be together. Thank you Thank you Thank you!

  • When we decided to get married, we knew it had to be in the mountains of North Carolina. Natives of South Carolina and Pennsylvania, we decided it was the perfect meeting spot for all of our friends and family. As we began our search for the perfect venue, we knew we wanted some place that was relaxed, affordable, and highlighted the beauty of the North Carolina mountains. We found Brahma Ridge through an online search - and thought it looked like the perfect venue. After speaking with Holly, we knew we had made the right decision. Planning from Massachusetts, we booked Brahma Ridge site unseen (which really worried our mothers). However, we were never worried because of Holly's reassurance and extensive knowledge of all of the vendors in the area.

    Our wedding experience was calm and relaxed for not just us, but for all of our out-of-town family and friends. We decided to have all of our family stay in the three cabins at Brahma Ridge and all of our close friends camped right on the property. This gave us plenty of time to enjoy the company of all of our guests, enjoy the beauty of the setting, and take in the importance of our big day. Because everyone was right there and we were able to enjoy Brahma Ridge for the full weekend, we had plenty of time to set up for the ceremony and reception. This allowed us to enjoy a full weekend of wedding celebration.

    Holly and Rob were there every step of the way - even when we went to cut our wedding cake, and realized we didn't have a knife! As soon as the day of the wedding started, time seemed to move more quickly. Somehow things magically seemed to come together . . . although we later figured out it wasn't magic, it was all Holly and Rob. We were able to focus on the meaning of the day, and not on the details of a wedding.

    All of our guests continue to tell us how our wedding was one of the most special they have even attended. From the crisp mountain air to the music around the campfire, we felt Brahma Ridge had something to offer all of our guests. We hope to spend many anniversaries at Brahma Ridge so that we can relive our wonderful, peaceful, meaningful mountain wedding!
