Let’s face it, our family loves the Ruins. They can handle anything. Before we had our wedding rehearsal dinner there, we had our birthdays, company parties, anniversary dinners, business dinners, date nights, and any other sort of social dinner or lunch gathering. We love their menu, their professionalism, their space, and their event planners. So it is no surprise that we'd practice getting married there. The rehearsal was fun, our guests we elated, everything was simply stunning. I'm not sure how public or available our wedding pictures will be, but they will no doubt be cemented in my memory and on display in my household for the years to come. The completeness and togetherness of the Ruins complete with chandeliers, table candelabras, flowers, and hand wrapped gifts, made the event simply stunning.Sent on 11/20/2015

Amazing attention to every detail. A lot of our guests had never been to the Ruins before and were quite impressed. We had great servers, bartenders, and the food was over the top. Their management does an excellent job of making throwing a party very easy. They work with you on everything. I had several guests wanting information because they would soon be throwing their own party or a wedding and wanted to check out The Ruins. Great experience for us and all of our guestsSent on 09/18/2013

Our wedding was a dream come true by having it at The Ruins!Sent on 08/18/2015
We got married in their "dinning room" and held our reception in the "ball room." Both rooms are gorgeous, one with rustic chandeliers - the latter with classic crystal chandeliers. We asked that The Dinning Room was made to look like an overgrown garden, and the ballroom was easily transformed into a magical fairy filled forest with its art on the walls and stars painted on the ceiling.
Adrienne, their decorator, truly went above and beyond with what she did. Catrina was our main point of contact during the planning and was lovely to work with. Phone calls are the best way to get a hold of both if you have something more "urgent/pressing." The day went beautifully and we didn't even have to hire a coordinator.
This venue is very DIY friendly and will work with you so you can have the wedding YOU want. We provided lots of decorations we had made, the linens and wanted tea to be served rather than a typical cocktail hour.
There were only a couple of things I wish had been communicated with me better, but nothing that actually ruined our day. In hindsight - I should've triple checked in on EVERYTHING and not just assumed since the venue never reached out to me in regards to those couple of things again that they were actually taken care of... cause they weren't.
The venue did apologize for these errors that occurred and even gave me a small discount.
Still - We wouldn't have had our wedding anywhere else. Our guests were blown away by their food, service, atmosphere and flowers.
Everything was perfect!
