    Amazing Venue

    Our wedding at the Ridges Resort was amazing. The staff is friendly and the atmosphere is so serene. Our wedding guest are still raving about the food, staff and the event as a whole. Our ceremony was held on the lake pier and the cocktail hour/reception took place in the Red Banks Ballroom. The weather was perfect and we could not have chosen a better venue to host our event.

    YES to The Ridges!

    We couldn't be happier about having our wedding at The Ridges Resort! The staff went above and beyond for my wife and me and all of our guests. Pros: (1) There are multiple locations on site to get married. Our wedding was in December, so we had it all indoors. The ceremony was in a large conference room overlooking the lake, our cocktail hour was in the lobby, and our reception was in the ballroom. There are also multiple locations by the lake if you are having an outdoor wedding. The food is delicious. (2) Before booking our wedding with The Ridges, we went to its restaurant to test the food and the professionalism of the staff- both excellent! The price point is also amazing for drink and food packages. (3) Our photos had stunning backdrops of the lake, mountains, and property around the resort. (4) The staff. Andy was fantastic as our on-site coordinator. She was detail oriented and worked with our budget to make our wedding everything we had dreamed. The catering staff, wait staff, and hotel staff are friendly and will do everything possible to make sure you and your guests have an amazing time.
