We held our wedding at Gatherings on the Ridge in September and we cannot begin to describe how amazing Jeanne is to work with. Not only did she keep everything in line for us, but she also kept us relaxed and able to have a great time and not stress over the details. I must have texted and emailed her a hundred times but she was always available and cheerful every single time we spoke. Everything went better than planned and I'm still getting compliments from our guests.Sent on 09/17/2017
Jeanne also put together our flowers and I still cannot stop thinking about how beautiful they were! It was almost as if she knew exactly what I wanted before I even knew it! :) If you're looking for a place to hold your event, please do yourself a favor and go visit Jeanne at Gatherings on the Ridge. The place is amazing and so is she!

Jeanne was awesome to work with!! We are truly blessed to have met her and get married at Gatherings on the Ridge; it is beautiful there! We had a later September wedding and the weather was abnormal; I want to say it was 95 degrees outside. But Jeanne was prepared and worked with us try to keep our guests as comfortable as possible. We really enjoyed working with her and highly recommend!Sent on 10/10/2017
