My husband and I wanted a venue that was completely different from our first marriages. We also wanted a wedding that reflected our personalities. It was out goal to make our wedding about not just the celebration of our wedding but the celebration of thanks to all of our family and friends who stood by us through the years. Amny of our friends and families have children and since hy husband and I have 5 kids between us, it was important that children be a part of our wedding. It was a HOT August day and we used the outing menu that provided 2 meals, watermelon break, ice cream and lots of very good food. The entire facility was open to our guests once lunch was over and they used it. I have amazing pictures of our children swimming, zip lining. playing on the boats. Our wedding album is awesome! There were so many places that made amazing backrounds. The staff went over the top being friendly and accommodating. Nick and Liz were so helpful. I cant say anything that I would of changed or have made better. All we heard all day and still do is that we had the best wedding ever!!!

We received numerous compliments on our wedding and this venue, with a number of people stating that it was easily the best wedding they had every been to! Liz and Nicole were extremely helpful, answering all of my questions quickly and accurately. During the wedding, Liz took care of everything, such that I just showed up and had a wonderful day! We had our wedding on a Sunday from 11:30am-5pm with 80-100 people. They allowed us to get ready in the Bridal Suite, which was very spacious with a private restroom, and to take pictures on the grounds before the ceremony. The ceremony was located at their beautiful gazebo, which has power available for music. Our reception followed in the pavilion with a BBQ lunch and ice cream sunday bar; we even had a small dance floor for our first dance. They provided beautiful round tables with white linen and napkins colored to match our theme. From 2-5pm, we opened up the swimming pool, climbing tower/zip-line, and lake with kayaks and water trampoline, which were all very reasonably priced and extremely fun. There were changing rooms available for the guests. In addition, we were able to bring in a petting zoo ourselves. All of the guests enjoyed these activities, and the staff made it fun and safe for everyone! In addition, if you are looking for a more traditional wedding (or a winter wedding), they have a beautiful and very large ballroom inside along with the "fireplace room", which would make for a great winter ceremony. Overall, I would highly recommend the Village at Boulder Ridge.

We were so impressed by the Village at Boulder Ridge. My husband and I visited many venues before this one and they all were overpriced and had that "Wedding Factory" feel. Boulder Ridge was not only affordable but beautiful! There is so much space. The grounds are beautiful, the entryway is gorgeous. The staff there were incredible, our guests complimented us on how friendly and helpful everyone was. If we needed anything on our day, we just had to ask anyone on the staff and they immediately responded with "I'll take care of it". The food was also great (or so I've heard, I had barely two bites).
Before the wedding Liz was so helpful. We met with her a couple times and she was great. She went above and beyond with little details like putting lavender ribbons on the cake table. We were able to come in and decorate the space the week before the wedding which made everything less stressful.
I would recommend Boulder Ridge to anyone looking for a rustic yet elegant space to have their wedding.

It's always a pleasure working with Kevin and his wife. If you are looking for a unique place with a family friendly atmosphere, then this is the place to be.
Wonderful venue for a relaxed wedding. You'll feel like your at summer camp. Love the setting, and the management is great.
