A literal dream
Honestly, everything was a dream! Our day was so perfect, we literally have no complaints! Our guests had nothing but compliments for the venue, as did our families! Sydney and Abby (13 Cedar Events) were absolutely wonderful! It was definitely a breeze and so stress free with both of you there to help. There isn’t anything we would have wanted to change! We loved having our meetings with Sydney and Abby leading up to the big day. It helped ease any stress and answer all of our questions. Sydney was also so quick to respond with any questions I had about ANYTHING! And I loved all of her recommendations for vendors, I am still obsessed with my florals (willow floral boutique) and absolutely adore the mango market (photographers) I want all my events to be at Ritchie Hill, truly the best experience!!! Our guests raved about the venue, food, and photographers!!! I would do it all over again in a heartbeat!Sent on 06/28/2019

Beautiful venue + excellent service!
Ritchie Hill was amazing! I felt so well taken care of by their wonderful staff once we booked. Having Sydney's expertise to keep things organized was so helpful, including the 30 day meeting to make sure we had all of our ducks in a row and the details were coming together. The venue manager was always quick to respond or find out an answer for us. And on the day of, I couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful venue to make our day magical, even if we had some rain! The venue is full of so much charm and natural beauty. My family and bridal party were so impressed with Sydney's attentiveness to detail and keeping things running smoothly. Someone asked me if I would have changed anything looking back, and the answer was no. I would have chosen Ritchie Hill all over again!!Sent on 03/04/2019
I can't say enough about this wonderful venue. It is filled with complete southern charm from their large wrap around porch to the very delightful venue manager Elizabeth Coddington. She made me feel so welcomed and took the time to answer all of my questions before I had to set up for an event. I watched her work with other vendors and various clients touring the grounds and she was delightful to everyone and took as much time as needed to make sure that every question was answered. The house has so much history and has been kept up really well which makes it such a treasure. I encourage everyone to check this venue out!
If you're looking for a timeless, classic, quaint Southern wedding- look no further. Photographing at Ritchie Hill is pure bliss- every inch of the property is impeccable, and an absolute DREAM to photograph! Unlike many venues, Ritchie Hill has several options in case of inclement weather, which is so important in the south. Their team is so friendly, and you'll be thankful you had your wedding there!
The team at beautiful Ritchie Hill are just a joy to work with! They are quick to respond, reliable, and super-friendly! I would recommend Ritchie Hill as a an awesome venue for many types of events!
