    Jeanne has transformed her barn into a beautiful wedding venue! She's kind, approachable, and always makes you feel at home.

    My husband and I new we wanted to get married at Gatherings the moment we stepped inside. We booked our wedding date before getting engaged because that's how much we wanted to secure a spot... we were in love too!!!

    Gatherings on the Ridge's reply:

    Thank you Stacie and Andy! I feel privileged to have gotten to know both of you, and that Jay and I can call you our friends. I LOVE watching your beautiful family grow and blossom! Thank you again for choosing us to be part of your beginning.
    Blessings,
    Jeanne

    Highly recommend!

    Gatherings on the Ridge is such a beautiful venue! We hosted both our ceremony and our reception here and couldn't have been happier with it! Jeanne was extremely helpful throughout the planning process, and Ann did an amazing job bartending and coordinating the day of! We're so glad we chose Gatherings on the Ridge!

    Gatherings on the Ridge's reply:

    What an amazing experience

    Jeanne is great to work with. She is kind, understanding, flexible, personable, and truly wants your day to be the best and will help you in so many ways to make sure your experience is memorable in the greatest way. Her venue is stunning- inside & out, and has so much character already before us brides bring in our own decorations. Everyone at my wedding had an amazing time, and complimented the beautiful area & scenery. The bartender was awesome and our day couldn’t have went any better. There’s truly not enough words to describe this beautiful venue, how wondering Jeanne and her staff is, and the laid back feeling you get here. 5+ stars.

    Gatherings on the Ridge's reply:

    Thank you so much Brianna for your kind review! I absolutely loved working with you, Taylor and your families. Please stop in again and please keep in touch.
