"Kai and Blue Ridge Event Staffing did an outstanding job at my wedding. The bartenders that served at my wedding were professional and provided quick service to our guests! Kai was very easy to work with and he always responded to emails/phone calls quickly! I highly recommend using their services for your next event!"

"I hired Kai for server and bartender services for a welcome party / rehearsal dinner we were having in Asheville. Kai and his team were early and had already set up most of the venue (tables, chairs, catering area) by the time I had arrived from the rehearsal. Kai was there personally at the beginning to meet me, ensure I had everything I needed and introduce me to his staff.
The two individuals (I can't remember their names, sorry!) were awesome! They pitched in wherever they were needed, were friendly, spunky and ready to help our party be memorable. I was recommended Blue Ridge by our venue vendor and was more than impressed. I highly recommend Kai and his team, you will not be dissapointed!"

"We used Blue Ridge Event Staffing to help staff a large wedding outside of Asheville, NC. Kai and his staff were organized, well trained and genuinely kind. More than professional service and quality. Will certainly use their services again."

Just wanted to drop you a note and let you know what a great crew you sent us on Thursday! They were so personable and helpful. We will most certainly use you folks again if we need bartender services! Happy holidays!

I hired Blue Ridge Event Staffing for my wedding at the Arboretum and they were amazing. The bartenders were great with my guests and the serving staff was extremely professional and took care of everything. Carie was our day of coordinator and everything was flawless. I was able just to relax and enjoy our special day. I highly recommend Blue Ridge Event Staffing for any event.

As an event planner, I exclusively work with Blue Ridge Event Staffing for all of my bartending and service staff needs. Whether it is a small reception of a couple dozen people or a major fundraiser for 400, Blue Ridge Event Staffing is top notch every step of the way.

A client of ours, who was determined to have our food at his wedding reception despite the fact that we could not transport the distance/time needed to the venue he and his bride had selected, first introduced us to Blue Ridge Event Staffing. They arrived when promised to pick up our precious cargo and presented it to our client with our philosophy of service. We have since called on Kai and Carie, when we have had to complete our serving ratios (25 guests to 1 server) at other caterings. The servers/bartenders arrive as professionals ready to work no matter what the circumstances (weather, last minute request for additional services, etc). Our philosophy of service is our backbone, so our expectations are high and BRES delivers!!! You can't go wrong. One less thing to worry about........

Blue Ridge Event Staffing provided AWESOME bartenders for my wedding! Not only were they polite, helpful and fun to be around, they were great about seeking me out and making sure I always had a drink. By the end of the night, they were a part of the party! Also, ahead of time, they could not have been more helpful in advising me and working out the details. Would book them again in a heartbeat and recommend them to everyone!

Blue Ridge Event Staffing is the absolute best!! We were absolutely blown away by the quality of service they provided for our wedding of 70 guests on September 5, 2015. We hired a bartender and server for our wedding, and they both went above and beyond to make sure everything went smoothly. Not only did they rock it out behind the bar and providing table side service, they bent over backwards helping setup the reception area; made sure the decor was perfect; provided our guests with everything they could possibly need; checked with us to make sure we had everything we needed throughout the night; cut and served the wedding cake; and helped breakdown and clean everything up. We seriously cannot say enough good things about Kai and his crew. Thank you so much for making our wedding day perfect!!
