    Perfect Venue

    Donna and her team were AMAZING! The venue is gorgeous and affordable. As an LGBT couple, we were nervous finding vendors, but within 10 minutes of touring, we knew Bandit's Ridge was where we wanted to be. Donna met with us multiple times beforehand and answered any and all questions. She added so many decorations to ours that made the entire event absolutely gorgeous. We can not recommend Bandit's Ridge enough!

    My husband and I held a Welcome Home party for our son which is currently serving in the US Navy. We are very pleased with the services and facility. Looking forward to using Bandit’s Ridge again.

    We absolutely love Bandits Ridge! I am sad our wedding journey is over with them. My wedding day was so perfect thanks to the help of the owners. They truly are the most caring people in the business. I recommend this place times a million for people to have their weddings here. You definitely get your bang for your buck at Bandits, which was so nice as we were on a budget.

    Not even sure how to begin...there are not enough adjectives in my vocabulary to adequately describe the experience we shared with Donna and her team this weekend as our daughter married our son-in-love. She and Brooke think of EVERYTHING! From the beautiful landscape to the big barn comfort to the small barn quaintness to the cozy bridal dressing quarters, they go the extra mile to make sure everyone feels at home and makes the absolute best memories. What a joy to work with folks who love their jobs. It shows in everything they say and do. If you want to have a function that you can enjoy to the fullest with no worries, this is your venue!

    We absolutely LOVED Bandit’s Ridge!! The owner Donna is the best! She was so helpful throughout the whole process leading up to and then the day of! She even let us come back for makeup pictures after our day was rained on. I can’t recommend them enough!

    Okay so the family that owns the venue is hands down amazing! They have such a great rapport with so many different vendors to help you on your big day! There is so much i could say but to keep it short amazing family. So helpful at all points of wedding planning and the venue was absolutely perfect. They accommodated us way more than we could have imagined! 10/10 will always recommend to brides to be!

    Absolutely beautiful venue! Donna, her family and her day of coordinator, Brooke, were so sweet and helpful in making our special day perfect! I couldn't imagine getting through the day without them! They go above and beyond for their clients and love what they do and it definitely shows! Thank you Donna for everything you do!

    The best day ever!

    I 110% recommend this venue to any bride and groom looking for the perfect spot for their big day! Donna, Brooke (the venue coordinator) and the whole family at Bandit's Ridge made my dream wedding come true! From the moment I met Donna a year before my wedding I knew their property was exactly where I wanted to get married! The grounds are gorgeous and so well kept. So many beautiful picture opportunities! She provides most everything you can think of to make your life as a bride easy, and affordable, including tables, chairs, china, a ton of decorations, wine barrels, linens, bonfire, games you name it they probably have it! Donna always answered my emails in a timely manner throughout the year of planning and allowed me to come multiple times to look at the venue and decorations to decide what I wanted to use.

    The day of the wedding was so relaxing and not stressful at all. The bridal suite was perfect for me and my girls to come relax in and get ready with a kitchen, bathroom, bedroom and plenty of lounge space and room for a large party. The men came and got ready in the reception barn in the groom/groomsmen rooms.

    Brooke, Donna and the team set up everything for my wedding including the arbor decorations (with Brooke's personal and beautiful touch) the centerpieces, signs, food, etc. I did not have to worry about anything the day of the wedding. I was just as in awe as our wedding guests when I walked down the aisle. Despite giving them my ideas (including pictures) they went above and beyond! Every single one of my guests still rave about how perfect the venue was and friendly and loving the entire staff at Bandit's Ridge is!

    Donna is honestly a life saver. She will take your vision and turn it into a reality. I never needed to worry because she took everything and worked her magic. I could email her at all hours of the day and she would respond immediately. I can't say enough about her family and her beautiful venue. She truly made our day so special. If you truly want to see someone who loves what they do and shows it, it's her!! Thank you again!

    Donna and Brad are fabulous. They were very accommodating and did everything so myself or my family have to stress on getting everything set up for the ceremony and reception. This is a stress free venue that gives you the opportunity to have the wedding of your dreams for a very reasonable price! Anyone who has a wedding here won't be disappointed. The beauty of the venue and friendliness of the owners will make bandits ridge THE BEST PLACE TO HAVE YOUR WEDDING! I couldn't have asked for a better day!!!

    Donna and her family that run Bandit's Ridge were all we could dream of for an amazing wedding venue. We spent a year building a relationship with Donna through the various events she invited us to attend (cookouts, bonfires, venue setup looks, etc). Every time we met with Donna we felt more and more like family and knew we had made the right choice in Bandit's Ridge. Leading up to the wedding, weather was iffy and Donna kept constant contact each day and helped us make the right decision for the day of the wedding. She went above and beyond the contract we had with her for day-of to make our wedding day go off without a single hitch.
    If outdoor, beautiful views, barn-style wedding is your thing, you MUST go visit Donna at Bandit's Ridge.

    Donna goes out of her way to help guest, the barn, patio and other facilities are very clean. She is willing to work with you with your specific event to make it work for you. If i plan another event they will be the first I call! Out of the dozens i called she was the only one willing to help me. Thanks Donna for everything!

    Donna was very very helpful before, during, and after the wedding. She made every effort to make the day as special for us as possible, and it was! She allowed us to bring our dogs and horse. We had a stellar time, and so did all of our guests.

    We could not have asked for a more beautiful place to have our wedding. We did not want a barn wedding at first, but when we saw Bandit's Ridge we were sold! The barn is beautiful and the trees in the background during our ceremony in the field made our fall wedding perfect! The Reynolds' are wonderful people, accommodating and helpful in so many ways! We would and have already recommended Bandit's Ridge to friends and would do it all over again in a heartbeat if we could!!

    My husband and I cannot express how grateful we are for the Bandit's Ridge family. I shed many tears the week before our wedding; not only did the weather forecast predict rain, it predicted a hurricane. Yes, we had a rain plan; however, how many brides have a hurricane plan? Donna and her family did everything they could to make our day unforgettable, despite the weather conditions. She communicated everyday regarding our rain/hurricane plan and made sure we were prepared. No matter how stressful the situation, she always focused on the positives. She reassured me that the wedding was going to be perfect no matter what.

    The day of the wedding was rainy, windy, and very cold. Donna, Brad, Andrew, and Becca (And a Few More) worked extremely hard to make our wedding beautiful. Everything we wanted, they made it happen. Everyone worked together to make the wedding beautiful, just as they promised.

    I recommend this venue to a bride in search of a rustic wedding venue. The bridal suite, beautiful landscaping, patio/dance floor, and whiskey barrel tables made our wedding unique. Donna has unique decorations that she allows you to use. Plus, she has a very good relationship with the rental companies; and they already know what works at Bandit’s Ridge (tables, tents, etc.).

    We got just want we wanted and more from our wedding venue. Donna is such a great person to work with and is involved every step of the way. In my opinion, her number one priority was to keep the bride happy. The entire family went over and beyond what I expected them to do. We are very lucky to have found a new friendship with Donna and her family!

    Donna does a wonderful job at Bandits Ridge. We booked her venue in July of 2015 for our wedding in September 2015. She had everything we wanted plus her daughter did the catering for the wedding which was fabulous. The price was very reasonable and location is gorgeous. We had not the best weather but Donna had already convinced my father on an extra tent so the weather wasn't an issue. I would highly recommend Bandits Ridge to any bride!
