We could not have picked a more perfect venue for our wedding. We often hear that your wedding day is a blur and flies by, but because we were able to rent the Rigmor House for the entire weekend, we felt we had more time to relax, enjoy setting up and decorating, and spending more time with family and friends from out of town. We weren't worried about people being late because both my husband and I stayed at the Rigmor, as well as a few of our bridal party members. We were able to give rooms to friends that traveled from out of state and there was plenty of space for our wedding of 84 guests. One of our favorite things about the Rigmor House is the large kitchen! It allowed us to cook our rehearsal dinner (saving us a lot of money!) and we often found friends and family congregating around the island, whether it was to snack on leftovers or help arrange bouquets. We also loved that at the end of our wedding night, our closest friends stayed late and we sat around and shared stories and ate leftover pies and banana pudding. Working with Ben was wonderful. When we went to visit the Rigmor House for the first time, we believe the thought of getting to work working with Ben as the manager was nearly as appealing as the house itself. He was quick to respond, very thoughtful and personable, and helpful throughout the wedding planning. The screened-in porch was an excellent location for our rehearsal dinner, and a lot of the older family members were able to enjoy that space once the dancing got started indoors. I could go on and on about how perfect the venue was for us. We're so glad we found it and would recommend it to anyone wanting an intimate, laid-back, memorable wedding weekend!

The Rigmor House is the perfect place for a wedding. The venue (indoors and outdoors) is absolutely beautiful, and the kitchen is great! All of the amenities we needed were there. We rented this venue from Friday - Monday and had two other, wedding-related events there besides the actual wedding and reception. We also had guests stay there. Everything was perfect! I also have to comment on how wonderful Ben was to work with. He was very helpful and friendly, as well as responsive to my questions and requests to come visit.

We rented the Rigmor House for the weekend for our daughter's wedding and it was the perfect place to bring two families together. The wedding and reception was held there. We enjoyed singing around the fire pit after the rehearsal party, eating together in the great kitchen and the front screened porch area was a peaceful place to sit and have conversation with friends and family.

This venue was perfect for our wedding size (103). The venue offers a beautiful field in front of tall fir trees providing great photographs and shade during some hours for the ceremony itself. A patio attached to the house along with an extensive accessible screened porch that wraps around the house are perfect for both the cocktail hour and casual conversations later in the evening away from the music. There is a large central room for dining and dancing. We used a 15 by 15 dance floor, but the size is adjustable. A special bonus is five bedrooms so you can stay there while preparing for the wedding and not be rushed to leave. Ben, the manager, is completely OUTSTANDING and the most responsive person with whom I have ever communicated. The price is reasonable, and the environment is perfect.

We had the Rigmor House for our entire wedding weekend and it was fantastic. Ben is incredibly accommodating and helpful in the planning process and keeps the house as well as the ground beautiful. There was five rooms for some to stay in and it was the perfect size to fit our 110 guest comfortably.

Amazing venue. The house and the surrounding pasture has so much natural beauty. Ben is incredibly professional and flexible to work with. Everyone at the wedding commented on the great venue. Guests loved staying at the house in the 5 bedrooms. We had a catered rehearsal dinner at Rigmor as well and the kitchen was great for that. HIGHLY recommend.

The Rigmor House was the perfect setting for our wedding! With so many friends and family coming in to town from all over the US, it was perfect to have a home base for the wedding party and so many of the festivities throughout the weekend. We were able to host an intimate brunch on the porch, our rehearsal dinner in the main room, and then the reception under a tent in the field with a bonfire under the stars. The setting is beautiful from day to night, and the house was wonderfully accommodating for our needs. Ben was great to work with from the very first email. It's been weeks since the wedding and we are still hearing from friends and family how much fun they had throughout the wedding weekend. I wish we could do it all over again!

An absolutely outstanding wedding venue with such great flexiblity for indoor, outdoor or hybrid ceremonies. We held our ceremony outside the afternoon, used the lush lawn for a garden party, and comfortably held the reception inside (we had about 150 guests). Ben is responsive, courteous and very accommodating, and we felt like the Rigmor became our home away from home for our special weekend. Highly recommended.

The Rigmor House was a great venue for my wedding. The interior became a very intimate space for me and my wedding guests. I draped tulle and white lights throughout the main room, and at night it really looked stunning - I received many compliments.

The bedrooms are a great size. There are two king beds, two queen beds, and one full sized. Every bedroom has its own large sized bathroom. There was plenty of space for my family to sleep, relax, and get ready in for the big day. And assigning one of the five bedrooms to close family members was a great way to honor them and show how much they are appreciated. And my family loved being able to go right to their room after the event without having to get in a car and drive there. This space is much more unique than using a hotel, and I had plenty of people ask me how I found it because they were very impressed.

The land is beautiful. I'm not sure how many acres the Rigmor House is set on, but the property is gorgeous. The grasses are kept in great shape, there are flower beds closer to the house, a gazebo and firepit in back, and lots of trees lining the property and that provided for great views and pictures.

The staff is very friendly and accommodating. I worked with Ben and he is excellent. Very ready to answer any questions and meet your needs. I visited the Rigmor House three times before I chose it, and each time he was very patient with my questions. I was also accommodated to come back and look through the house several more times after I booked the date so I could get measurements for planning the tables and decorations.

The tables and chairs for rent are very nice. There are only 12 round tables, so I had to use some of the rectangular tables as well and that was completely fine. 8 people could comfortably sit at each round table. The white wedding chairs are in great shape and are comfortable and sturdy. I did not end up using the dance floor.

The kitchen is large and everything in it is available for use. I used their wine glasses and plates during the reception and then simply ran them through the dishwashers - there are two. There are many amenities that come with the Rigmor House, it truly is a great choice for an event.
