Our wedding at Milton Ridge was a dream come true. The Chapel and reception hall are very special, elegant and sophisticated spaces. Tracy helped us with every detail of the wedding including decor and menu - she is attentive, caring and truly made us feel as if our wedding was the most important thing. With her ideas and help the decor including candles created an absolutely stunning environment! The chapel and reception hall were romantic and beautiful - she has amazing taste and talent. The food was incredible! All of our guests commented on how fantastic the food was and how they loved Milton Ridge - the positive energy and beauty is hard to put into words - everyone had a wonderful time not just because it was a wedding - but because all of the details, the food and special ambiance made people very happy and joyful. Elegant and sophisticated were words our guests used to describe Milton Ridge.

I absolutely cannot say enough good things about this venue. The coordinator, Tracy, is an absolute doll to work with. She makes things easy and painfree. Whenever I had a question, I had a quick and thorough response. She was very accomodating and willing to work with whatever we wanted. The venue itself is beautiful - very neutral tasteful colors, buttercream walls, wood floors, very clean and crisp. It's basically a beautifully elegant blank canvas for whatever decorations you want - you dont have to worry about clashing like you do with a busy hotel carpet or drapes or wallpaper or the millions of other issues we ran across with other venues.
The catering is amazing, it was set up beautifully and everything was delicious, we received a lot of compliments on how good everything was. The staff treated us like superstars, catering to our every need, checking in on us regularly to make sure we were happy and not in want of anything.
It truly does work the way they say it does, all of the vendors work together to make the evening flow flawlessly. The only vendors we didn't go with were the photographer, officiant and ceremony musicians, so I can't speak to their quality, but I'd assume it's up to par with everything else.
You absolutely MUST use their hair/makeup stylist, florist, cake baker and DJ Fela - these vendors were so spectacular its beyond words, but I'll review them separately.
I would 100% recommend this vendor to any and everybody - it's truly top notch.

Absolutely amazing!! From the moment we saw the white walls large windows and wood floors we were in love with this venue. Tracy and the whole staff work so well together to help make your day perfect. The catering was great and everything flowed so well that there was no wedding day stress because eveything was under control. This place is simply gorgeous and a total steal for the quality and personal attention you will receive. Do yourself a favor and at least visit the venue before making a decision on any other venue, the pictures are so pretty but what makes this venue so amazing is the staff and the endless possibilities for creating your perfect wedding.

I was recently married, October 15, 2011 at Milton Ridge and couldn't be more happy with the venue and their team. The venue is spectacular and we received so many compliments on how beautiful the historic chapel was. The flowers, catering, and cake were equally amazing. Our photographer was booked through Milton Ridge, Amy Sievers and she did such an amazing job, I have used a lot of photographers in the past and she is by far the best. The venue also has a bridal cottage for brides to get ready. My wedding was at 5pm and my bridesmaids and I arrived at 11am and spent the day relaxing in the cottage and getting ready. It was a wonderful experience.

I highly recommend Milton Ridge. From the initial interview and venue tour with Tracy until my new husband and I left after the reception, the experience was so positive and professional. Tracy, the wedding planner, was always so helpful and presented cost effective options and solutions to our proposed ideas and worked to ensure everything was scheduled and executed properly. She was so reassuring when I needed it. It was amazing how she executed all of my requests perfectly. You would have thought she was only working on our wedding. All of this aside, Tracy is a very good person and a true asset to Milton Ridge.
All of the venue provided services were excellent. The cake was beautiful and the multiple layers/multiple flavors were well received. The florist, Melissa,was very pleasant and nice to work with. She interviewed us and presented ideas for centerpieces that met with our expectations of elegant, yet simple. She flowers were fresh and were exactly as we requested.
The DJ, Fela, was very professional and his planning website made it very easy to plan the reception schedule, define his involvement in the reception and select music for all phases of the reception. All of our guests were very pleased with the music. Milton Ridge has laser lights, strobe lights and color lights in the ceiling of the reception hall (you wouldn't know they weere there). That was a nice touch as the dancing got going.
Rev Fair, our officiant, was wonderful. He is a jovial man that is very patient and keeps his end of the wedding on time and task. I have had so many compliments about him and his story told during the ceremony. Rev Fair made a huge impact on the guests...they loved him.
Milton Ridge provides a number of ceremony music options. We chose the classical guitarist, Chris Dunn. He is a Peabody Conservatory trained classical guiartist that is fantasic. Tracy provided us with a copy of his CD of wedding music to listen to so we could decide the pieces we wanted him to play for the ceremony. As with all of the other service providers, he executed our requests perfectly.
The catering was very good. The food is prepared on-site and is very tasty. The servers were very professional and attentive. We were very pleased with the catering. I recommend the Grilled Salmon and Chicken Alexander.
Brides... the bridal cottage is a perfect place for pictures and getting ready. When we arrived, the cottage was candle lit, very pretty. After the cermony, my husband and I went to the cottage to freshen up and they had our selection of drinks and finger foods ready for us.
I hope my comments help you in your decision to select Milton Ridge. Best of luck!

Milton Ridge was amazing in every way. We had a very short engagement (less than 6 months) and planned the wedding in less than 5 months. That being said, it could not have been a more enjoyable and relaxing experience. Tracy is WONDERFUL! So sweet, considerate, and just easy to talk to and work with. She answered all questions or concerns quickly and professionally. We worked with Milton Ridge's florist (Melissa Popple of Candelight Designs) and the flowers were beyond my expectations- absolutely perfect. We also worked with their minister (Roger Fair) who was pleasant and funny. The ceremony musicians (the Weilands) were also great to work with- they made all of our requests flow very nicely together and created the ambiance we wanted for our special day. DJ Fela was laid back and created the perfect backdrop for a fun yet relaxed reception. And finally, the food was great. Everyone said how it was some of the best "wedding food" they had ever eaten! Start to finish, Milton Ridge went above and beyond to make our day special, not only for us but for all of our guests. We could not be any happier.

I cannot say enough amazing things about our experience with Tracy and Milton Ridge!!
Milton Ridge was the first and ONLY venue my husband and I visited during our wedding planning. We knew the moment we walked into the chapel that it was the PERFECT place for our wedding. It is tastefully and simply decorated so you canreally transform the space into any personal style. We transformed the Milton Ridge Chapel and Reception Hall into my exact vision. I would not have changed one thing! From the very beginning, it was so easy to picture us getting married on their property.
Tracy is an ANGEL!! She went above and beyond not only for me and Matt, but for my mom as well. She made herself extremely available for both of us.n On several occasions, Tracy just let me bounce ideas off of her when I'm sure she had a million other things to be doing at that moment! She kept me calm and collected throughout our entire planning process. I cannot praise her enough! Also, she surprised me with such a sweet gift on the day of the wedding!! :)
We also used Milton Ridge catering and we were thrilled with the food. All of our guests loved everything that was served. I was so impressed by how much food each guest received. It was beautifully presented as well. I love how Milton Ridge allows you to serve two entrees for every guest. We offered a surf and turf including blackened sea bass and a beef tenderloin, both perfectly cooked. The caterer was also happy to tweak any dish and accommodate any dietary need.
We loved DJ Fela! He had the dance floor FULL until the wedding was over. I have never seen such a packed dance floor at a wedding!
I would recommend ANY AND ALL of the vendors at Milton Ridge. I had the wedding of my dreams and I know I would not have been able to do it without their supportive and creative team! Thank you a million times!!

It is an absolutely lovely site and they worked with my every idea and whim to make sure that my wedding came off without a hitch. Tracy, the wedding planner, is incredibly sweet and genuinely loves weddings! You can tell in everything she does. I wanted an outdoor ceremony. They had never done before, they worked with me to make it happen beautifully. My maid of honor even said when she gets married, she is going straight to Milton ridge!

this is updated from previous comments:
Milton Ridge Chapel is the ONLY place to have a wedding and reception.
We loved every minute of the planning with Tracy and her troup of assistants. Shary did the most marvelous cake, she is a true Artiste.
Jody did hair and make-up for all the ladies and made us look like Superstars. Milton Ridge even had a most thoughtful gift in the Bridal Cottage for me when I arrived. It was an elegant robe with my name embroidered on it to wear for my makeup and hair session! Tracy even remembered my favorite iced coffee and had it brought to us on trays! Chris Dunn did our music along with the soloist for the Ave Maria. Lisa did our flowers in Chapel, Pool and Reception Hall. All STUNNING and original with our, actually my, new last initial floating in the pool. David and all his fabulous catering staff provided a bountiful gourmet dinner and wonderful drinks for all the guests with a special pre-ceremony buffet in the Bridal Cottage for all the ladies while we dressed. And drinks immediately after the ceremony to fortify the Groom and all the Groomsmen for the wedding pictures. Amy did our photography and followed us everywhere all day long. She photographed us inside and outside in classical poses that we will treasure always. Ben, the videographer and his helper Kristin were like Amy, they were there without being noticed.
I don't remember even once seeing them yet they took the most fabulous photos and video. They are like phantasms, invisible. Jim, the DJ, played all our selected and favorite songs and was an excellent Master of Ceremonies. We loved how he handled the Bouquet and Garter ceremony!
Everyone was in stitches, laughing. The guests loved how Jim introduced us and all our attendants and family. Also he rolled with the punches when guests had special requests. He has every possible song available in his repertoire.
I have helped plan numerous weddings for family and friends but never have I experienced such a flawless series of events.
Everything just appeared on time and disappeared on time. It was truly magical. Tracy conducted a perfect wedding symphony along with her orchestra of assistants!
And yes, if there is one word to describe our wedding at Milton Ridge Chapel I would say FLAWLESS. Other adjectives would be perfect, fun, no stress, excellent value, location, ease of walking from Bridal Cottage ( which in and of itself is a godsend for gathering all the ladies and Jody to do the hair and makeup in one place) to Chapel and then walking to the Reception.
Most weddings have the complication of transporting the guests and Bridal Party from the "launching" area to the church, then the church to the reception. All involve great stress and expense. At Milton Ridge Chapel we just walked a few steps! This is especially good for the older and handicapped guests. It was easy to push the wheelchairs just a few paces.
The chapel has the perfect layout with the convenient bathroom inside, the upstairs waiting area for Groom, Best Man and Groomsmen ( thanks again to David and Tracy for providing the beer to keep them relaxed) Tracy and staff: thank you for making our day perfect in every way, truly Flawless.

I wouldn't change a thing regarding my Milton Ridge Wedding. The staff was extremely helpful and courteous. They took care of everything, and really went the extra mile to make sure things were perfect. It was a great experience! Tracy, the wedding coordinator, takes a lot of pride and making sure everything is perfect for the couple. She stayed the entire wedding to make sure everything went well. We had a great experience!

What an amazing experience! Tracy was so helpful and I felt like I was in good hands from day 1. She really made the entire experience stress-free and simple...she was prepared for every detail. The bridal cottage was perfect for my bridesmaids, moms, and me to get ready. The chapel was perfect for the intimate/elegant setting we were going for. The reception hall was decorated beyond my expectations. We went with the brunch buffet meal (it was a morning wedding) and our guests raved about how much the loved it. DJ Fela was very accommodating. Flowers done by Lisa were exquisite and the cake by Sharry (sp?) was so beautiful AND delicious. My photographers were in love with everything about the setting for the day.
I truly can't think of a single complaint. I sincerely and highly recommend Milton Ridge to anyone!

Milton Ridge was absolutely AMAZING! If we had to do it again, we wouldn't change a thing! The owner/manager, Tracy, of the chapel and reception hall was so personable. She put together a binder for me that was personalized for MY wedding! It contained information, ideas, and checklists that I pretty much took with me everywhere! If I had a question, she had an answer! My hair and make-up artist, Jody, did such a great job. We met for a trial run where I gave her my ideas and she worked with me to give me a look I absolutely loved. She also did my maids' hair. My photographer, Amy, was outstanding! We spoke on the phone so she could get a feel for Dan and I as a couple, and we discussed ideas for our engagement shoot. She was so flexible...she was willing to go where we wanted her to! And she was a blast to work with...I never stressed for a second about my photos. Lisa, our florist got me the flowers I wanted and arranged them how I wished. She was super friendly and made great suggestions to make my flowers even better. Erin and Michael provided live music for our ceremony. It was beautiful. They played every selection I made, and I hadn't even bothered to ask them if they were capable =] The DJ played at our reception. He held a phone consultation to go over the planner I filled out for Tracy. He asked additional questions that I hadn't thought to ask, but it was all important! The wedding cake was delicious! We met with Sharry for a cake tasting, and she gave us exactly what we wanted...and 2 different flavors! The officiant also sat down with us before the wedding to get to know us and talk about the ceremony. Roger was so sweet and performed a beautiful ceremony! The catering was all around outstanding! The staff was friendly and made sure there was nothing we had to ask for. The food was delicious, and there was so much of it! Overall, I can't think of one bad thing to say about my experience at Milton Ridge. It was worth every penny we spent. Milton Ridge made my wedding the day I had always dreamed of! Thank you so much to Tracy and the people she works with for all of their hard work and dedication. I recommend Milton Ridge to every bride-to-be out there! All of my guests said they had never seen us so happy, and that's because we were! Much love and thanks to Milton Ridge!
