Weddings with Nature


Compassionate Expressions resides on 40 private acres in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains just outside of Asheville, NC.  With one of the most spectacular mountain views in the area, our grounds are largely untouched in reverence to Mother Nature's inherent artistry. Our atmosphere is personal and intimate. We are best suited for small to medium sized weddings with a maximum capacity of 125 people. Since we are a complete Retreat Property (Lodging, Pavilion, Outdoor Fireplace, Entertainment Area, Outdoor Kitchen and Scenic Grounds) we require rental of the entire property for your private wedding weekend. (Weekend Rental begins Friday at 4:00 pm to check-out on Sunday by 11:00 am.)

DIY: We Give You the Freedom to Design Your Event!

You are empowered to DESIGN your own wedding. You are free to choose your own wedding vendors and have the option of bringing in a Catering Service or Self-Catering.      We supply the tables, tablecloths, and chairs for your party. You are responsible for providing your own tableware: dishes, silverware, napkins, etc. (Regarding Alcohol: Beer, Wine and Champagne only).

Your rental fee includes use of our Pavilion sound system for CD and iPhone music. If you have a DJ or Band, they must bring their own sound system.  Please note: We are not Event Planners, however, we do have a local vendor list for many of your event needs.

Compassionate Expressions is excited to announce the opening of the 

"Temple of the Awakening Heart" located on the Retreat Property.

It is available for rental as an indoor option for your wedding in case of imminent weather or better yet, simply because of its masterful timber frame architecture and sacred space appeal.
