I am so glad we got married here! We had our reception outside on the deck under the tent. Then went right into the Great Room for the reception. The room was more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. We fell in love with this venue because it has history and personality and is nothing like your average ballroom. The high ceilings and big windows are so pretty! The flow of the room is really nice too and the dance floor is huge.
Angie was amazing to work with! She is an expert and helped us so much in making all of our decisions. She had great suggestions too. Her and her staff are like a well oiled machine! Everything went so smoothly from our first meeting to the big day. Putting on the Ritz has awesome food too, but I'll review that separately.

Perfect for our Winter Wonderland Wedding
The Great Room was everything I could have imagined and more. We had a winter wonderland themed wedding and all of my guests raved about how magical the venue was. This room is beautiful on its own, but add Christmas decorations, a dark night sky, all of the pillar lights twinkling, and candles--it was so cozy and romantic. Would not change a thing--Angie went above and beyond to make my dreams come true. Thank you so much for making our day perfect!Sent on 12/04/2018

Angie at TGR was awesome! I had been emailing with her before I was even engaged (lol) and she was always so patient with my million and one questions. We booked them over a year before our wedding and with all of that time, everything on the day was exactly as we wanted it to be. The venue looked gorgeous, I cried when I saw it all put together. The set everything up exactly like we wanted. The staff was awesome, the food was delish, and Angie was there which I was so happy about. She is a pro! TGR is an awesome venue for any occasion but especially for your big day.
