Appalachian State Weddings

Wedding Receptions, Weddings, & Rehearsal Dinners


The Plemmons Student Union, in the heart of the ASU campus, has two beautiful venues for your special day, the Summit Trail Solarium and the Parkway Ballroom.

The Summit Trail Solarium brings all the best elements of nature indoors. The Solarium features walls of glass and two-story, unique plaster frescoes, an indoor balcony, waterfalls, grand foliage, a stage area and marble floors.

The Parkway Ballroom, located on the Fourth Floor, can seat up to 200 guests in a more traditional banquet venue (maximum, depending on layout) and boasts beautiful views of the east side of campus and the mountains beyond. The Parkway Ballroom features a wall of glass, double screen video capabilities, and can be fitted with a stage and dance floor.

Students, alumni, staff and children of ASU graduates can host their wedding in the Solarium or Parkway Ballroom, and rehearsal dinners can be held in a variety of other PSU banquet rooms.

Appalachian Catering specializes in elegant wedding reception fare and made-to-order cakes.  To inquire about Appalachian Catering and specialty wedding cakes: call 828-262-8011.

Please Note:  We only host one wedding per weekend per venue to better serve you. The Plemmons Student Union plans around ASU events and university holidays in determining our available dates. Fall weddings must be scheduled around the ASU football schedule (we do not host any weddings during home game weekends).
