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

Perfect venue for wedding!
Ritchie Hill was the best venue I could have chosen for our wedding in May! Sydney and the team at RH walked me through the entire wedding process and helped alleviate any stress. If you’re looking for a gorgeous garden theme with natural beauty located in the historical district, this is the perfect venue for you!Sent on 06/10/2019

Best day of my life!
Not only is this venue completely perfect and beautiful itself, but it also comes with 2 of the most amazing ladies I've ever worked with! From the second we stepped onto the property with Shannon - we fell in love with it! We had been weighing the pros and cons of each venue we toured and we couldn't find one negative thing about Ritchie Hill, we just knew it was the perfect place for our wedding. Throughout the planning process Sydney was a lifesaver!! She was so patient and kind and always willing to answer my questions and offer suggestions on things I hadn't even thought of yet! Both of these ladies always made me feel so special and important and not like just another bride. I can honestly say Sydney, Shannon and the entire Ritchie Hill team went above and beyond for our special day and truly made it the BEST day of my life. I am so sad it's over and wish I could relive that day over and over! I would recommend working with Ritchie Hill and it's wonderful staff 100000000000% - you absolutely will not regret it and you'll have one of the most precious and perfect days of your lifeSent on 09/18/2019
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!
