Upon entering the Historic Asheville Masonic Temple, you feel the elegance and history of the building. With a Grand Staircase to your right taking you through the building telling the history of the building, you never know who you might see on our walls, maybe a President. Leading you into the 3rd floor Theater. The Theater is Breathtaking and something that you have to incorporate into your wedding or event when seen.  

Most of our events will begin in the Foyer with a Welcome Reception and then invite guest to the 3rd floor Theater for a Ceremony with Cocktails off the Theater in our Noble Room letting your guest experience the whole building. After Cocktail your guest are invited down to the 1st Floor for Dinner, Dancing and Cake. We set the stage for a very formal and easy transisition for your event.  

Of course our builidng is designed to let you have room to get ready here as well for both the Bride and the Groom. Our Bridal Room is large enough for 20 people and the perfect place to have a Bridal Luncheon as you are getting ready for your big day.
