Picturesque Property with Superb Staff!
If you have had a chance to look at pictures of Deer Ridge Estate, then you already know that the venue is GORGEOUS (and the pictures do not even do it justice)! However, if you are like us, you researched multiple venues…all of which we pretty and charming. What sets Deer Ridge Estate apart is the owners and the staff. Mark and Laura, the owners, made the venue for their daughter’s wedding so it truly is a labor of love. They also made recommendations and suggestions for various vendors to aid us in our search since we had no idea where to even begin. In addition, their Estate Manager and Coordinator Becky was such a blessing throughout the entire wedding planning process, especially with the added craziness of COVID. They kept abreast of the ever-changing situations and promptly let us know when mandates were such that we would have to reschedule our wedding. When this happened, Becky was quick to email us a list of available dates to reschedule. As we neared our new date, they continued to help us ensure our day was everything we had envisioned while still helping our guests feel comfortable and safe. Because the venue is so spacious, we were able to spread out tables to allow increased distancing. At Deer Ridge Estate, you also have the option to pay additional money to hire high school students in the area to help out in a variety of ways such as serve food and keep things clean which was such a blessing and well worth the extra cash in these crazy times. By working closely with Deer Ridge Estate, we were able to have as close as possible to the Pre-COVID wedding we had envisioned in the mid-COVID world. We are so grateful to have stumbled across Deer Ridge Estate as they treated us like family throughout the whole process. If you have merely glanced at Deer Ridge Estate in passing, we highly encourage you to take a closer look and then book them!Sent on 08/21/2020

Perfect Wedding and Reception Venue
If you are looking for the perfect "venue" (my wife and daughters tell me this what you call a "place" for a wedding/reception or any manner of large social gathering), take it from the "father of the bride" - you will find no venue better than Deer Ridge Estate. How do I know? My middle daughter (eldest twin) was married on July 26, 2020, at Deer Ridge Estate. Originally, that wedding was booked for April 26, 2020, but you know how that went when an uninvited guest named "COVID-19" sent its untimely RSVP. My daughter's fiance was already working in Hawaii when everything "shut down" there and here, so the logistics of rescheduling required a great deal of finesse. Enter the Deer Ridge Team. We could not have been happier with the entire experience, starting with the (literally) hands-on owners Laura and Mark. For example, they had creative solutions to ensure that everyone in attendance felt safe, given their varying degrees of "physical distancing" confidence. This included creating a tastefully cordoned off "mask only" area. Did it work? I am pleased to report that not one attendee fell ill or tested positive. And there were 180+ guests, from infants to seniors! I would be remiss if failed to include how Becky, the Executive Estate Manager, organized, supervised, and served right alongside the wait staff. Laura and Becky were onsite, front and center from setup through take down. The wait staff was impressive, too. They were local high school students who were uniformly dressed in black slacks and black Deer Creek Estates polo shirts. All were polite and professional. Finally, regarding the venue itself. The location is gorgeous and must be seen in person to fully appreciate it. The whole experience was simply amazing. Thank you, Deer Ridge Estates.Sent on 01/30/2021
