We loved our wedding at Ravina. We were thankful for their flexibility and how up front Melissa was about all costs involved in the event.

Horrible communication, service and industry knowledge by the manager, Melissa, who handles all events out at Ravina. Beautiful location and scenery, but you won't enjoy working with management!!!! The location is beautiful but I suggest you better be on top of everything if you have a wedding or event here. Management is very difficult to work with. You will be treated like a one time only customer. You will be told one thing and then get another. BE PREPARED!!!!!

Melissa was super helpful and knowledgable. She was able to answer our questions and calm our worries within a day or two of our emails. She met with us, caught hold of our vision, and helped us get there.

Thank you for providing her perfect setting! All of our guests had a wonderful time!

It would be helpful to see the room set up just as it will be on the day of the event earlier in the planning process.
It was very easy for my other vendors to work with my venue and the prices were reasonable compared to other venues in the area.

Everything was beautifully done, just as was planned. The only potential problem we had was the room set-up had more guests attended. We thought we may have up to 375. The floor plan given for that number was really not conducive to the atmosphere we wanted for my daughter's reception. We weren't told at the beginning that we would have to have a set-up of all long (harvest or festival seating) tables if our number was that high. Since the number came in at 340, the set-up was exactly what we wanted.

We did however have to recreate the seating chart on Tuesday of the week of the wedding. Fortunately we did not yet have place cards printed or that would have been more problematic.

All in all the day was wonderful and Ravina did a marvelous job of helping to make the day what we had envisioned.

My daughter was married at Ravina in October. We had such a wonderful day and the experience could not have been better. My first and only daughter, I did not know what I was doing. Melissa the event planner was so great to work with, she worked with all my ideas ,some good and well some not so good, so she would suggest other options. Great to work with a place that will actually tell you the truth and suggest options, for those of us that may not know what they are doing. The day went so great, the food was wonderful and the staff really took care of us. The menu we had was so fun, we had something different and our guests just raved about it. Great day and great experience.
