    Amazing from start to finish!

    We looked around extensively for a wedding venue that fit our needs. The Ridges Resort is absolutely breathtaking! Our coordinator Andy, was very friendly and easy to work with. She (along with the entire Ridges Staff) was professional, responsive, organized, detailed and worked with us to make our day absolutely perfect. We can't wait to visit the resort again!

    Stop Looking & Book Here!!

    Getting engaged right before COVID-19, we were excited to have our wedding at the Ridges. When we saw venue nightmare stories, weddings cancelled, we started to panic. Andy from The Ridges put all our minds and hearts at ease with making our big day a realty.
    This is the perfect venue if you want a more intimate weekend with friends and family while being in a beautiful place, with incredible food and activities.
    Wedding day was a BREEZE, we got a ton of compliments on the food, and walking into our reception and seeing the magic the Ridges created brought me to tears.
    I'm so glad we have a place we can go back and relive the best day of our life. Our memories at The Ridges are just starting thanks to wonderful and outstanding hospitality!!
