Teresa and Bruce were so great to work with! They took so much time to make sure everything was perfect, and took care of things we wouldn't have even thought about. We had a tough time finding a venue we liked until we took the tour of Emerald Ridge. Teresa spent so much time giving us information, answering questions, and driving us around to see everything. I was sold immediately! You can tell they genuinely care about every couple they work with. The cost was reasonable for the value you get. The fact that you get the venue from Wednesday-Sunday is amazing. We had plenty of time to decorate and had our entire rehearsal there, which was amazing. All my guests were in awe of how beautiful Emerald Ridge is. If I had to do it all over again, I would pick Emerald Ridge in a heartbeat. Such a beautiful place!Sent on 09/19/2018

Coulnd't have asked for a better venue
Bruce and Teresa from Emerald Ridge were so incredibly accommodating. Anything we asked for, they were willing to help with. We had our wedding at the Legacy Barn venue and our guests continue to tell us how great and unique they thought it was. I would recommend Emerald ridge to anyone.Sent on 11/17/2018

We LOVE emerald ridge!! I have not one complaint or tweeck or anything other than praise for teresa and her staff, bruse is amazing too!! Down to the smallwst detail they were amazing! I can honestly say do to their awesome hands i was not stressed at all on my day and the days leading up!Sent on 07/03/2018
The food was phenomenal, the venue was beautiful, the scenery was breathtaking.
A huuuge shout out to Teresa, she was just above and beyond through the whole process. Im a bride from out of state, so most of my planning was through calls and email. Everytime i had a question teresa would be right on it.
My bridal party now has a saying for my wedding, “it’s emerald ridge” because we had so many things that could have gone wrong but didnt. This venue is not only amazing but has such a beautiful vibe about it as well, you can feel the love growing there!
I can not thank them enough for MAKING my wedding day!

This is an amazing all in one venue. Teresa and Bruce are wonderful to work with! Planning with them was great! Teresa worked to make sure that I was happy every step of the way and that I wasn’t overwhelmed. There are staff on site that set up and tear down for you, leaving you time to focus on other things. She also has wedding items and decorations available for you to use, which was wonderful!Sent on 12/06/2017
The venue the day of looked perfect. All the times were set up exactly as we had discussed. Everything was on time and the food, oh the food! It was PERFECT. We had compliments from everyone, and everything from the appetizers to the main meal. When we were taking photographs between the ceremony and reception the staff even brought out appetizers to us to make sure we didn’t miss out! When it came to dinner there was enough for everyone on the buffet.
They were so helpful in making suggestions to the time line of the day as well! I planned this wedding on my own and had a few questions but on the planning day Teresa knew all the answers!
I would (and have) 100% recommend these venue! Not only for the beauty, the value, and ease, but for the wonderful people who run it as well.
Emerald Ridge Weddings & Receptions's reply:It was our pleasure! You both and your families were awesome. Thanks again for having your wedding with us.

The Rustic Oaks venue at Emerald Ridge was such an incredible place to have my wedding. The view from the ceremony is beautiful. The waitstaff and service was top notch. My guests complimented me all night about the service and the venue itself. Teresa and Bruce were an absolute blast to work with throughout the whole experience. They had EVERYTHING we needed to host this huge event and yet still gave us all the freedom we wanted to make the wedding personal to us. This is truly an incredible place to hold a wedding and I would highly recommend this site to any couple ready to tie the knot.Sent on 08/15/2017

Teresa and Bruce were absolutely amazing to work with! Our wedding at their Rustic Oaks location will be one that we will always remember! I have had so many compliments from my guests about how amazing and beautiful our venue was! Our guests have even mentioned how they have gone to a lot of weddings and nothing compares to Emerald Ridge! I have also received SO may compliments on how amazing our food was! On our menu we had apple walnut stuffed pork chops, tri-roasted potatoes, and california blend vegetables. For a late night snack we had traditional wings and egg rolls, and let me tell you those wings were absolutely amazing! Teresa and Bruce were very helpful every step of the way through my planning process! If I had any questions at all I went to Teresa and she was very fast a getting back to me! I saved a lot of money as well, because Teresa has an amazing lot of decorations that are available for you to use on your wedding day! If there is something you need there is a high probability she will have it already for you. There is not a single thing that I would change or have done differently for our wedding day, rain and all. Teresa, Bruce, and there staff were there to help us get everything ready from the Wednesday before our wedding till Sunday when we left.Sent on 07/15/2017
They were there on the day of to help with everything, and take care of all those little things that you seem to forget on the day of so we didn't have to worry about it. It was very easy to transition inside when it started raining halfway through our ceremony and it worked out great! You will not regret having your wedding at Emerald Ridge, because it is unlike anything else! I would definitely recommend this venue to anyone!
Emerald Ridge Weddings & Receptions's reply:Thanks for having such an important day with us. I will truly miss your smiles and friendship.

Our wedding at Rustic Oaks was one we will always remember. What a great location! Teresa and Bruce were amazing every step of the way, from planning to reception. They made us a priority and always had a speedy answer to any questions. I cannot think of a single thing we would change or have done differently. They were there on the day of to help with everything, and take care of all those little things that you seem to forget on the day of. The food was absolutely amazing (even though she won't give up the recipe!). I would be happy to recommend them to anyone interested. Teresa and Bruce take a lot of pride in their business and it shows. You won't regret having your wedding here. We met as customers, and left as friends.Sent on 07/12/2017
Emerald Ridge Weddings & Receptions's reply:What a great couple you both are. Maybe someday I'll give you my pulled pork carnita recipe. Absolutely loved your wedding and reception. It was our pleasure to be able to work with you both

Teresa is so easy to work with! She’s friendly and knows what she’s talking about! After a couple experiences I had venue searching (one place the venue owner never showed up and another wouldn’t give me a tour because they believed that they weren’t the right venue for me), it was a relief to find Emerald Ridge Outdoor Weddings and to meet with Teresa! We left our venue tour already wanting to book it for our date. When we got home, we immediately emailed Teresa and said we wanted to book! I love that Teresa has so many decorations that you can borrow for the big day and that you get Wednesday to Sunday to set up and tear down! So excited to have my wedding there on June 9th at Rustic Oaks!Sent on 03/31/2018

Teresa was amazing to say the least. She was very open to letting us decide where we wanted things and didn't pressure us to decide everything all at once. She is a hard worker and her homemade food was to die for. I would definitely recommend Emerald Ridge to friends!Sent on 07/23/2017
Emerald Ridge Weddings & Receptions's reply:What a great couple you two are. Along with your families. Loved your decor!

Emerald Ridge is the perfect place to have a wedding! You get a lot of bang for your buck here. Teresa was so helpful and made sure everything was in place. It was required that we go through their caterer, and while at first we were disappointed, it ended up great because the food tasted amazing. I was also very pleased that the venue upgraded to flushing toilets. The view and vibe of the venue is spectacular and our guests couldn't stop raving about it. If you're on a budget, think twice about having your wedding in the Twin Cities. Just an hour out to the country at Emerald Ridge will save you a bundle and won't cost you quality!Sent on 08/14/2017
Emerald Ridge Weddings & Receptions's reply:Tarin and Isaac - It was truly our pleasure to host your wedding reception at our facility. The symplicity of your décor was absolutely beautiful.

Teresa has all the decorations you would need for your rustic wedding! She even works hard to collect more throughout the planning process! What ever you need, she will get for you, and tells you not to buy a lot of things because she has them for you to use already!Sent on 03/20/2018

Gorgeous location and love that you can have everything at one venue. Food is just okay. You have access to decor which is great. We were charged for 340+ sodas and our bartender said he would estimate we went through 40-50 tops for drinks and maybe 30-40 more for people just drinking soda. When we arrived to clean up I watched several children that were there with staff to clean taking soda from the fridge while a staff member was "counting" from our wedding. Like everyone else who rents we were charged for a broken chair. The chairs are not in great condition and this chair was VERY warped and broken in several spots. We were told that we would not be charged for hot chocolate, the hot chocolate was not put out for the hot chocolate bar with signature drinks until guests requested it and we were charged for it. Guests were suppose to be offered milk with the meal, no one was offered anything to drink (milk or pitches of water) and we paid for plated and served meals. My husband booked a shoot for the morning of in the clubhouse so they could do it while getting ready and the photographer could get pics while doing both, but the owner thought they wanted a field shoot and this caused the guys to be very late and none of the photos of the groom and groomsmen were completed due to a long field shoot. It allSent on 01/11/2017
Worked out and it was a perfect day for us, but the venue was just okay.
