We have been using Ruth ridgeway and her wonderful company for the past 13 years. She did all 3 of our daughters Bat Mitzvah celebrations. As a Rabbi and Director of my school, Hebrew Wizards, she has helped me convert the First united Methodist Church into a beautiful synagogue for us to share our prayers during our High Holidays.Sent on 02/01/2017
ruth is a passionate signor and so easy to work with. She understands immediately what our goals will be, and her mission is aligned with ours, to make a beautiful celebration for our family and friends. Every event she puts her heart and soul into her work and the finishing product, is always excellent. Her staff is as amazing as she is. She is a one of a kind person with talent and compassion to make our visions come to life and be a memory forever in our hearts. From flowers, to decor, to planning and execution, there is no-one better than Ruth!

Ruth is a true visionary that will take you from initial concept through execution beautifully and stress free. Her quality, creativity and knowledge is unmatchable in this industry. I was a nonconventional bride who knew I wanted something unique and she patiently guided me through each step, while providing me with creative vision simultaneously. She is not a cookie cutter florist who just treats your wedding like another job in the factory, and truly treats your special day with a personalized, professional approach. If you chose to work with Ruth, not only will your event design and decor dream become a reality, but you will also have trust and confidence in who you chose throughout the process and have one less aspect to stress about. She pays attention to every detail and therefore the full effect and energy you wish you have is carried throughout your event. I couldn't recommend Ruth more as she was truly a blessing on my day and made my wedding one to remember.Sent on 10/24/2019

Beyond our wildest expectations!
MAGIC! Ruth and her incredibly talented team gave my wife and I the wedding we could only dream of. Her work goes far beyond lush floral arrangements and delicate drapery. Ruth took our wish list, and created a visual MASTERPIECE in our reception hall. Flowers and decor so elegant that we felt like royalty. Ruth's brilliant work will forever frame the fondest memories of our wedding day. Thank you for making our dreams come true, Ruth Ridgeway Designs!Sent on 10/24/2019

Stress-free and Stunning End Results
Ruth Ridgeway Designs made our June wedding reception an absolute fairy tale....would recommend over and over again. When choosing venues, I was nervous about our selection....the room we went with was a little masculine, a little dated, and a little too rustic for my particular tastes. Ruth listened to us and was there every step of the process, and come the big day I didn't even recognize the same room I had walked through less than a week ago - the decor, the drapings, the flowers, everything was done exactly to our taste and guests couldn't stop talking about how beautiful and unexpected the table settings were. The process was stress-free and fun and the end result was stunning!Sent on 10/24/2019

Dreams come true... and more!
Ruth and her team created a wedding that we could only dream of. With ever whim, will, and desire, Ruth never no. If things weren't possible, she instead provided creative ideas and solutions that brought us closer to what we were looking for (and ended up ultimately being what we wanted). Throughout the meetings and rapid prototyping, I realized that Ruth "walks the walk". On the day of, the custom props, decorations, and backdrops were beautifully created. The flowers, impeccable. The organization and execution, flawless. Ruth Ridgeway is the epitome of event designing. I will definitely be reaching back out to Ruth so that I can book her for my next event!Sent on 10/24/2019

I can’t say enough good things about Ruth and her team. Ruth was an absolute pleasure to work with. She offers a unique blend of creativity and attention to detail but at the same time she is always mindful of the budget and always looking to give you the most impactful options. She is patient and rolls with the punches even when faced with last minute jitters or changes. She is professional but at the same time incredibly warm and approachable . If you are dreaming of an event that will wow your guests and exceed your highest expectorations, Ruth and her team are the ones you want on the job. Thank you Ruth!Sent on 01/28/2019

We can't say enough about Ruth. I called Ruth in a panic two months before my wedding. She was gracious, commanding, diligent, creative, and supportive through the entire design process. Ruth and her team went above and beyond at the Burr Homestead. They turned a crabby white tent into a magical dream. Our guests are still talking about how beautiful the design was, and the amount of detail that was accounted for! Our day would not have been the same without you, Ruth!Sent on 09/10/2018

Our daughter was married on July 28, 2018 at the Barns at Wesleyan Hills. Thanks to Ruth Ridgeway and her team of professionals the day was spectacular! Ruth not only is extremely talented, but her eye for detail is like no other. Her vision exceeded our expectations. The flowers were so beautiful, our guests were amazed by the quality of the work and how gorgeous everything looked. Just what the bride and groom had wanted. From the first time we met with Ruth, she was warm and wonderful to work with. We couldn't be happier. There wasn't a moment we had any concerns, because we new we had a pro at the helm. Ruth also has a wonderful staff that has been with her for years and are all also very talented and professional. Great job Ruth! I wish we could do it all over again! It was magnificant!Sent on 09/25/2018

I can’t even begin to describe how amazing Ruth Ridgeway Design is, I would give her 10 stars if I could. I have had a vision in my head of how my wedding would go, how it would look, the flowers, the décor, and everything in between. I could not have even dreamt up the amazing and beautiful day that she created for us. Ruth’s talent is unparalled. When we sat down to discuss the colors and the flowers and the overall feel, there was never an idea that I didn’t love. She truly listens to what you want and envision, and creates something that is just so far beyond your expectations. The flowers were so incredible, they were one of my absolute favorite parts of my entire wedding (second only to marrying my husband!). Thank you so much Ruth, you and your amazing team created a fairytale something that we will cherish for the rest of our lives!!!Sent on 10/14/2018

STRAIGHT OUT OF A FAIRYTALE!Sent on 06/02/2018
Clasping our son's hands my husband and I set down the aisle, and before us stood the MOST MAGNIFICENT
Chuppah ( wedding canopy ) we have ever seen! I actually remember holding my breath as I looked ahead and started the procession. The gorgeous Chuppah was handmade specially made for the bride and groom by a beloved aunt ,but what Ruth designed to compliment it was quite elegant and beautiful : incorporating the colors of the needlepoint while complimenting and enhancing the simplicity of this wonderful gift ~ it was flower magic!
The talents of her team and her SPECTACULAR creative vision also made a splash in the tent where the reception was held. It felt like a ballroom ~ only better. OMG!! people kept exclaiming! The flowers, the chandeliers , the tablecloths ( who mentions the tablecloths??)
THE WHOLE ROOM WAS DIVINE!
Every detail was perfection: the young friends of the couple especially enjoyed this little lounge area with couch and chairs for people to sit and visit - SO AWESOME!
The icing on the cake was the " twinkle lights" that hung from the most gorgeous Magnolia tree right outside the tent as you approached. It was like nothing anyone has ever seen. You wanted to just be near it and basque in the romantic lights and aura she created for the evening.
it felt like LOVE....
Ruth is a pleasure to work with and mother nature decided to give everyone involved a run for her money on the wedding day and all I saw was HER HUGE SMILE and joy on her face as she made it happen. She works beautifully with all vendors and is always accessible.
I want to get remarried so I can have her design and decorate for me . IT WAS THE MOST ENCHANTING DAY EVER!

Ruth's creative vision and attention to detail are extraordinary. This is clear from a review of her portfolio. But what sets Ruth apart and makes her work very special is that she is incredibly perceptive -- she "gets" her clients and she will not accept anything less than complete satisfaction. It's as important to Ruth to get it right as it will be to you (as the host of your event) or to your child (in the event of a Bar Mitzvah). Ruth anticipated what would be "cool" and "fun" to young people -- she knew it better than they knew it -- and was able to balance this requirement with my requirement that the decor be beautiful, elegant, and classic. I don't believe you will find someone more talented and dedicated to creating the right atmosphere for your celebration--regardless of whether the atmosphere is contemporary or traditional, glitzy or earthy, showy or understated. She will take her cue from you and she will deliver decor that helps you learn something about yourself. You'll walk into the room and recognize your own values and sense of beauty and you'll wonder how she managed to get it so right. Her intuition is invaluable, her professionalism is exceptional, her artwork extraordinary--she is a gem.Sent on 04/17/2018

Ruth has an extraordinary creative visual mind and gold hands to go along with it. She brings your visions to life in the most beautiful beyond exceptional way. Ruths passion is seen through her work, and the way she contacts me to discuss step by step details for her ideas for my event. My event was magical and visually breathtaking. Thank you Ruth! I would recommend her for any event and will use her for every event. You are truly unique and GiftedSent on 02/26/2018

My daughter got married a month ago and one of the best decisions we made was hiring Ruth Ridgeway! I can't begin to tell you how many people told us it was the most beautiful wedding they had ever been to! Ruth created an elegant beach theme and followed it throughout the venue...from the flowers, to the lighting, and beyond...her work was breathtaking. Ruth was attentive to so many details which we never would have thought of but made all the difference...for example using silver chargers, the table linens, the use of high and low candles, the up lighting... these little things added up to make the wedding reception magical. The way she used flowers and candles in the many centerpieces, and created a different design on every table at the reception was so impressive. Ruth was a pleasure to work with ...her vision and sense of style are unmatched! I would highly recommend working with Ruth...she made my daughter's wedding day one of the most beautiful and happiest days of her life!Sent on 11/06/2017
