Appalachian State Weddings

Weddings, Wedding Receptions, and Rehearsal Dinners

The Plemmons Student Union, located in the heart of the ASU campus, houses 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, featuring glass walls, unique two-story plaster frescoes, an indoor balcony, waterfalls, grand foliage, a stage area, and marble floors.

The Parkway Ballroom, located on the fourth floor, features a traditional banquet style venue and can seat a maximum of 200 guests (depending upon the room layout). The ballroom boasts beautiful views of the east side of campus and of the mountains lying beyond it. It also features a glass wall and double-screen video capabilities, and it can be fited with a stage and a dance floor.

Students, alumni, staff, and children of ASU graduates can host weddings in either the Solarium or the Parkway Ballroom, and rehearsal dinners may be held in a variety of other banquet rooms in the student union.

To inquire about reserving the Summit Trail Solarium or the Parkway Ballroom and rehearsal dinner space in the student union, please call Plemmons Student Union at (828) 262-3032 and ask for Jenny Koehn.

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

Please note:  We host one wedding per weekend per venue to better serve you. Plemmons Student Union determines available dates for weddings by planning around ASU's events schedule and university holidays. Fall weddings must be planned around the ASU football schedule, and we do not host weddings on home game weekends.
