This venue was perfect for our wedding size (103). The venue offers a beautiful field in front of tall fir trees providing great photographs and shade during some hours for the ceremony itself. A patio attached to the house along with an extensive accessible screened porch that wraps around the house are perfect for both the cocktail hour and casual conversations later in the evening away from the music. There is a large central room for dining and dancing. We used a 15 by 15 dance floor, but the size is adjustable. A special bonus is five bedrooms so you can stay there while preparing for the wedding and not be rushed to leave. Ben, the manager, is completely OUTSTANDING and the most responsive person with whom I have ever communicated. The price is reasonable, and the environment is perfect.

Wonderful, would recommend for a laid back experience
Ben is incredibly friendly and helpful. He helped me decide where tables and chairs needed to go to best optimize the space. The Rigmor House has been a dream in terms of flexibility and helpfulness.

Beautiful wedding at Rigmor
We had the best experience working with Ben at Rigmor to plan an absolutely perfect wedding weekend at Rigmor House. Ben was extremely easy to work with as we were planning every little detail, accommodating us every time we wanted to go out to the venue to work out one detail after the next. We had the venue booked for the whole weekend, so we had Rehearsal Dinner there on Friday evening and the ceremony (outside) and reception (inside) Saturday afternoon/evening. We also had a handful of family members stay in the rooms at Rigmor, which helped save on hotel costs for out-of-towners. Having the ceremony outside on the lawn was beautiful, with an easy transition to cocktail hour outside on the patio, with dinner and dancing inside after that. Though we didn't know if it would work initially (and it took some playing around with), we did fit 155 guests inside for a sit-down dinner without being crammed. A few tables were moved out of the way off the dance floor after dinner. Highly recommend Rigmor for your wedding!
I directed a wedding at Rigmor House this summer and WOW what a fun venue! The house has a wonderful lodge feel with ample outdoor space for ceremony and other activities. We had lawn games spread across the property and lit up the fire-pit at night. Out of town family were able to enjoy the whole weekend together, staying in the spacious bedrooms on site. I would definitely recommend Rigmor House for weddings or family reunions!
Beautiful venue and so easy to work with! Very professional.
A beautiful facility with a great staff! A pleasure always
