I fell so in love with this place that I told friends and family 2 years prior to my engagement that I’d be married here. I signed the agreement before my now-husband even saw it in person. And I’d do it all over again in a heartbeat! The word stunning perfectly describes Ritchie Hill. The house, the grounds and the arboretum will transform your wedding into the event your guests will talk about for years. The simplicity of the house with the gorgeous wood doors make for breathtaking photos while the front yard is full of trees and flowers that can set a beautiful backdrop for cocktail hour. The openness of the arboretum allows you to design your ceremony exactly the way you want it. There is not a better place in the Charlotte area to be married than Ritchie Hill. The staff, from the very beginning, was easy to work with and extremely accommodating. I cannot sing the praises of Ritchie Hill loud enough. If you are looking for a charming, Pinterest-worthy setting with a staff whose level of hospitality and helpfulness could hands-down rival any venue across the country, book your wedding at Ritchie Hill. You will absolutely not regret it. Photography: Keepsake Memories Photography - Jacksonville, NCSent on 12/21/2017

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

We were married at Ritchie Hill on 6.10.18. The house and property are beautiful, which is what first sold us on the place. What really blew us away though was the Ritchie Hill team, led by Shannon Cudmore, who made sure everything for our wedding was perfect, down to every detail. The service was way beyond what we expected.Sent on 09/05/2018
The entire team went above and beyond - adding flowers on the hor d'oeuvres plates, for example, a small extra touch that looked very elegant. At one point the bridesmaids and I got so caught up in conversation we had forgotten to get our bouquets ready by removing them from water and drying the stems. It had completely slipped my mind until I noticed a young member of the RH team doing it, saving us the trouble.
Those are just a couple examples and there are many. Really what impressed us beyond the quality of service was the character. Each member of the team had such great energy and their energy was infectious. They all had huge smiles and happiness for us!
It served to solidify the feeling of being at home in the Ritchie Hill house. We had an amazing day and wouldn't change a minute of it.

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!
