    Incredible Wedding Venue

    We absolutely loved the entire wedding planning process and wedding day with Blue and the team at Asessippi. The attention to detail in the planning process made it super easy to know that the wedding day was going to go perfectly as planned. Although we only ended up having our ceremony here, and not our reception, we would highly reccomend them for anyone looking to have the wedding of their dreams!

    High Hopes, Low Results

    I want to ensure I write a comprehensive review so that I am not taken as just a disgruntled individual. For full disclosure, my fiancee and I were planning on booking at Asessippi (had even paid the deposit), when a number of events led to us cancelling.

    I would like to start with the pros: The area is absolutely gorgeous. The valley, vine chapel, and river area was what my fiancee and I were most hoping for for our wedding. It is very breathtaking in both the winter and the summer.

    Now that I have addressed all that we have found enjoyable about our experience I would like to list the reasons for a low review:

    The staff was poorly organized and non-responsive throughout the first few months. As an example I would list that we asked for her to inquire into drapery for the tent, which she agreed to do (as she had rented the tent for us, and we did not know the dimensions). After over a month without results, we were told to looking into it ourselves, which led to weeks before we could get the tent dimensions.

    The conversations were also very persistent on options that would cost more money, and not cognizant of what we wanted. We were pushed to rent out fans and bug zappers for our outdoor wedding (despite saying no), told to expect a $400 fee for the dance floor (which was listed as included in the contract), as well as meeting a number of difficulties in trying to provide liquor ourselves (double charging bar services, adding in security costs, and a 40% corkage fee).

    On the topic of cost, the staff took no opportunity to increase price for granted. Gratuity and tax were added to everything including items such as the dance floor, and items from other vendors (tent rental). We were also quoted $175 (plus gratuity and taxes) in costs to have a event permit for the park filled out, which upon research we found was a $50 dollar form that would take minutes to complete.

    We had hopes that having one point of contact for rentals would relieve stress, but we found that even talking about planning the wedding was a chore. Safe to say our decision to move on from Asessippi has rekindled our excitement.

    Such an amazing day!

    Blue and her team did everything possible to make our day special. Even when it stormed so bad our ceremony sight got washed away last minute! It was a wonderful day and so beautiful! They went above and beyond for us.

    Great Vendor

    Blue is amazing to work with! We had our ceremony scheduled for August 2020 and due to Covid, had to postpone to next year, she was so accommodating for us and can not wait to tie the knot next year!

    Blue and her staff did such an amazing job helping me get my day together! The food was terrific, we asked for pulled pork, coleslaw and potato salad; it was a huge hit with the guests! The venue looked spectacular and we got to go up on the ski lift with our bridal party and that was a memory everlasting!

    we absolutely loved our wedding at Asessippi Ski Area and Resort. The setting was beautiful, Blue and her staff were great to work with. They set up the ceremony and reception site just how we wanted it. They provided some decor, and we provided some. In the end we had vintage doors set up behind the head table, 4 long tables of 20 for guests featuring burlap table runners, baby's breath and baby eucalyptus in mason jars, napkins tied with twine and baby's break and brown tag place settings. The Chef and team were also great to work with. They prepared us a beautiful custom charcuterie for cocktail hour, and a build your own burger bar with gluten-friendly and vegetarian options for dinner featuring hand pressed and grilled burgers, 2 kinds of fries with different dips, 3 types of salad, and condiments in mason jars. They set up a s'more bar and firepit outside later. The dance floor was lit with twinkly lights. Everything was awesome. Only critique would be the sound system during the ceremony and reception -- there were some issues with the wireless microphones -- but that could be fixed I am sure.

    I would recommend Asessippi to anyone looking to plan a wedding. Blue and team were excellent. They accommodated every request and made sure everything went smoothly. The weather couldn't have been more perfect. We had endless compliments for the venue and supper. Thank you for making our day perfect!

    If getting married on New Years Eve, be prepared for a lot of people wandering. Ask that they give you and your bridal party a specific area to hang out during down times.

    My husband and myself got engaged in mid June and both decided we wanted a quick wedding as my mother was unwell. Blue and Asessippi were excellent in every way shape and form. She knew our fragile situation and treated it with such grace. She was personable, prompt , and beyond dedicated. You just felt in good hands as your wedding was as important to her as it was to you.

    Blue and her team were professional and very accessible! All questions were answered, and if she didn't know, she'd find out quickly. We gave her ideas of what we wanted and she would also share her ideas, make templates and stay conscious of our budget. Her team did everything, and I mean everything from renting the linen to setting up the dinner reception to decorating the ceremony site with the wedding flowers. (Because clearly us ladies have more important things to prepare day of the wedding than flower settings!) This was something that worked for me as I lead a hectic personal life and didn't have time to plan a wedding in three months. It was no stress and no fuss! Exactly what I wanted!

    Our Wedding was fantastic. It was truly a masterpiece. Blue made our dream a reality. Our wedding was outdoors, perfectly timed and scheduled by the team. Blue opened her house up to the bridal party where we could get ready. The dinner was served family style and was the best dinner I think we've ever had. Blue even made a "quiet" place up for my mum so she could rest up if she needed too. I was so humbled by that gesture! Our dance reception included a pizza and nacho late night buffet with a Bon fire that roared all night outside underneath the stars! Every single person on the staff were so courteous and professional!! I cannot thank them all enough for such an incredible day!

    we've already been asked by a 4 y/o when our next wedding is. I'm truly grateful and appreciative for all of Blue and team's hard work. By the end, she felt like family and I truly consider her a life long friend.
