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.

They were fantastic throughout the whole wedding and planning and have have great spaces for outdoor or indoor weddings. We were planning outdoor, and then it rained the entire week leading to the wedding, and was pretty cold out, so we decided on indoor 2 days before. Inside, looks like a barn, very rustic, and you get married in front of a huge stone fireplace that can be decorated with flowers, or candles. Outside is in front of a pond, with a white gazebo. Either way, great options. For the reception you can mix indoor, outdoor, and a pavilion buffet. For pictures, they are also down the road from the Barkhamsted reservoir, which is really really pretty

One other really cool thing about them as a place, is that it would be really easy to do a super offbeat wedding there. They have a pool, zip lines, bocci courts, volleyball courts, a climbing wall, ect, which all can be used (for a fee) during the day if you wanted to do more of a picnic and games type thing. We didn't end up using the facilities at all, but at the beginning we had thought about it.

Leading up to the wedding, they were very responsive and helpful, just all around great. Day of, same thing. Everything went smoothly, the food was delicious, the place looked great.

Potential downsides: They are out of the way a bit, and there are not good hotel options. The closest hotels are either at Bradly, Avon, or Torrington, all about 15-20 minutes drive, and at night, the area is dark with small roads. So, if you are having a mostly out of town wedding this is a bit of a problem. They also don't do food tastings, so you just have to trust them...which we did, and the food was outstanding. One of their reasons for not doing food tastings is that they buy everything locally the week before the wedding something I really liked.

Over all they were amazing, the food was great, and we loved everything!
