Highly Recommend! 5 Stars!!

What an amazing place!! We recently got married at Defiance Ridge. Everything was perfect from beginning to end!! The venue was gorgeous, drinks were great, and the food was phenomenal!! All of our guests raved about the food. Our food tasting was such a fun experience, it was so hard to choose since all of the options were delicious! Michelle, the event coordinator, is a gem!! She knows her stuff, was easy to communicate with, and made my day super smooth! Michelle made sure to connect and guide all of my other vendors like DJ, photographer, etc. I didn't have to think about anything the day of except just having a great time. They take care of everything at the venue from food to drinks to linens and chairs. This made wedding planning such a breeze so that we didn't have to book individual vendors. We definitely picked the perfect place and it will be a special place to continue to visit in the future! Highly, highly recommend!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Defiance Ridge = the BEST venue

Our wedding was beautiful and Michelle was absolutely the best coordinator ever. So many times I thought for sure we were missing a detail or running behind, but Michelle was right there to help plan everything out before and during the event. Top of the line service. Thanks for making it great!
