    The Best Day of Our Lives! Thank you Bandits Ridge!

    I give this venue 100 stars! This venue was everything we wanted and then some. Let's start with the friendly owners and staff, from day one they made us feel like the most important wedding to step foot in that venue. We knew immediately that was the place we wanted! They set you up for such success. They recommend the top vendors and my gosh they do not disappoint. We used their florist recommendation Florals by Jennie and believe me that girl will make your wedding an entire dream. They set us up with their venue coordinator, Angie, and she was a pure gift from God. She listened to all my thoughts, dreams, and desires and delivered a wedding reception that exceeded every expectation we ever could have had. I am literally teary-eyed writing this review thinking about how magical our day was. Take your fairytale dream wedding and then multiply that by 10 and that is what you will get here.

    They went beyond just our wedding day too. Donna, the owner was available whenever I had a question, and boy did I have them. She was so kind and accomodating to me. We were able to use her venue for multiple pre-wedding photoshoots and they gave our engagement photos every eliminate we could have ever wanted. This is the kind of venue that just makes you feel good from the moment you walk onto the property! I truly cannot say enough good things about this. If you are looking for your wedding venue...RUN to this one! It will not disappoint.

    Wedding dreams come true at Bandit's Ridge!!

    I cannot tell ya'll how blessed we were to work with Donna and her team. I met Donna at the Richmond Wedding expo in January 2020 and my mother and I were blown away by how much they had to offer, their professionalism, and their southern hospitality. Donna and her team bring that elegant southern charm to everything they do and it made our special day perfect. Throughout COVID, she was responsive and there to calm my anxiety, giving the best advice. We had an absolute blast at our rehearsal dinner and she even let me use a steam engine on the property for my wedding entrance. The cocktail barn and reception hall are beautifully done and there was plenty of space for everyone to spread out. I cannot say enough good things about Donna and her team and I am forever grateful to have gained such an awesome friend for the best day of my life.

    Bandit's Ridge's reply:

    Thank you, Erin, for your sweet words! You will always have a special place in our hearts. Thank you for allowing us to share your beautiful day! It was a day I will never forget.
