    Would give 10 stars

    The Venue was not only an amazing location for our wedding, but the level of service, quality of food and constant communication from everyone on their staff made the reception part of our wedding absolutely perfect. Amanda who was our on-site contact after we booked was very detailed and kind. She made sure that there was not a hair out of place. My husband is a chef and we cared about the food and wine and Chef Michael worked with us to create our dream menu. My only regret was not hiring The Planning as our wedding coordinator. The owner, Marta is a complete professional and is a no-bull kind of lady...which speaks right to me! If you are a perfectionist like I am, you won't be disappointed!

    We live in Florida and after a lot of research, my daughter and (now) son-in-law, chose to have their wedding ceremony at the Ridge; their reception at The Venue; and The Planning assist with all of the (long distance) preparations. After only one visit to North Carolina and almost a year of numerous email questions; last minute changes; and suggestions on things I hadn’t thought of; the “Big Day” arrived. The weather cooperated so the view at The Ridge was breathtaking; and the food and service at The Venue was extraordinary. Needless to say, we could not be more pleased with the way everything turned out. Many, many thanks go out to our wedding planner Cloie (The Planning), Darien, Olivia, Hope (The Ridge) and Deandra (The Venue) (plus countless others on their respective teams) for their professionalism, patience and for all of the hard work and dedication they put into making this “Big Day” a huge success!!!!

    My best friend (who was also a client of mine) had her rehearsal dinner here. Everything was wonderful! Being her MOH and hair/makeup artist I needed to make sure everything went off without a hitch and it did. Everything was perfectly decorated and food was amazing. The staff was very helpful any time we needed anything. The location for this venue is perfect too! You will not be disappointed!
