Stephanie & John

We loved the idea of having an outdoor wedding.  The mountain backdrop at Ridgewood Event Center was beautiful and absolutely what we envisioned. We loved the flexibility to do an outdoor wedding if the weather became an issue. It was also lovely to have our family members stay at Blue Lake Ranch nearby.

I had my wedding at Ridgewood Event Center in December 2019. I was so impressed with the amazing customer service; they were wonderful from the first meeting to even after the big day. You can see the love and care put into everything they do. Weddings can be so stressful and the staff at Ridgewood did everything they could to make the day as seamless and stress free as possible. I recommend them to anyone I know having an event.

Ridgewood Event Center and Blue Lake Ranch were the best locations for my wedding! They were so helpful at the very beginning when we started planning our wedding. The location has housing to stay at for the wedding and that was one of my favorite things about the location. Not having to worry about my family on the roads after a big wedding.

The team at Ridgewood was absolutely amazing and worked so hard to make our wedding perfect, especially Joan the coordinator. If you want a fabulous rustic and quaint location, Ridgewood is the place!

Ridgewood Event Center was a perfect fit for our rustic wedding. We stayed at Blue Lake Ranch in the Upper and Lower Spring House to keep our bridal parties separate, yet within the same space. It gave us a mini vacation getaway; we could relax leading up to the big ceremony and get ready surrounded by beautiful scenery. Most of our guests stayed at Blue Lake Ranch as well.

We absolutely loved Ridgewood.  This venue was perfect for us, beautiful scenery, serene and out in the country.

From the moment I saw Ridgewood, I knew it was the place I wanted to have my wedding. Not only was it beautiful with all of the flowers, river and tree, but the Alfords were so kind and supportive.

Since the very first event at Ridgewood, our own wedding, and years before there was even a building or plan, just that incredible view and 100 straw bales, we knew what a special spot nature had created. We look forward to sharing it with you.
