Honestly, our experience with The Ridges was amazing from start to finish. We live in Atlanta, bhut knew we wanted an affordable venue out of town a bit. I've never even thought about planning my "perfect wedding", so I was completely lost when I started my search. I decided to be a brat when looking for the venue.... So on on the website I would put filters: 1. Lake 2. Pool 3. Boats 4. Mountains 5. CeremonANDreception 6. Outdoor Activities 7. Golf 8. AFFORDABLE 9. Booze/Food Catering Services Provided.

I couldn't believe it when The Ridges popped up! Seemed to good to be true, so I sent my parents over there to check it out. They were floored at how beautiful the resort was. The yard was perfectly trimmed and full of gorgeous flowers--talk about amazing landscaping! We looked on their website and were pleasantly surprised at their packages! Boats!!! Yes please! Full bar packages at a reasonable price- even better! After we decided we were immediately taken under wing by Kristen, and The Ridges staff. Again, I had no idea what I was doing-- it was so nice to have someone who thought of my questions before I even knew to ask them! I know this is getting long-winded, but I had such an amazing experience, I would highly recommend anyone to not only stay here for a vacation..... But to make your wedding day a vacation too! The food, the drinks, the rooms, the marina, the lawn....a must-see and must-do!

We chose to have our daughter's wedding at the Ridges Resort and Marina and it's one of the best decisions we made. The wedding was on April 25, 2015 and the weekend could not have been more perfect. The entire staff was so friendly and helpful and the property was absolutely beautiful from the lodge to the floating pier to the fire pits! Kristin was our wedding coordinator and did such a fantastic job. She was there the whole weekend helping with every detail to make sure everyone was where they needed to be and to ensure not only the ceremony went off without a hitch but the entire celebration. After you have been planning such a big event for almost a year you just want it to live up to your expectations and frankly it surpassed ours, and we have Kristin and everyone at the Ridges to thank for that.

We highly recommend a Ridges wedding!

My daughter's wedding ceremony and reception was at The Ridges on September 20, 2014. The experience was top notch from the planning to the actual day. Kristin and her staff went over and beyond to provide the vision my daughter had for her wedding. The ceremony was outside on the lawn overlooking the lake with the cocktail hour on the patio around the fire pit ( the crab cakes and fried spanakopita were an excellent choice). We were blessed with perfect weather and were able to have the reception and dance floor on the lawn. The staff set up everything as planned and were very accommodating. Many of our guests stayed at the lodge or in the onsite villas which added to the enjoyment of the weekend. We had many compliments about the venue and how friendly the staff was especially the awesome ladies at the front desk.
Kristin texted me the morning of the wedding to ask if there was anything I needed that she could pick up for me on her way to the venue. She was with us every step of the day and night. We could not have asked for a better on site coordinator than Kristin. I highly recommend this venue for a wedding or other group function.

Thanks again Ridges for a memorable time!

I will give a 10 if I could! The people there were amazing, they did everything they can except make the weather not rain on my wedding day. But even so, they kept trying their hardest to keep the seat dry. The food was amazing, the resort was beautiful, and the most important is the service, you can't asking for better people! Everyone was so accommodating, the wedding would not have happen without them. Highly recommended!

The Ridges was a GREAT site for my reception! Renee Beebe did an awesome job helping us plan. Between my mother and myself... I think we sent her a 1000 emails! She was so great/quick to respond, and the Ridges was so flexible with what exactly we wanted and didn't want. They really took care of so many things, freeing us up to really put time into the details. The food was delicious as well. I highly recommend the Ridges! It was my DREAM WEDDING! :)

The Ridges was a GREAT site for my reception! Renee Beebe did an awesome job helping us plan. Between my mother and myself... I think we sent her a 1000 emails! She was so great/quick to respond, and the Ridges was so flexible with what exactly we wanted and didn't want. They really took care of so many things, freeing us up to really put time into the details. The food was delicious as well. I highly recommend the Ridges! It was my DREAM WEDDING! :) Read less

The Ridges is a beautiful venue!!! It was perfect and exactly what we needed. What really pushes this place over the top is Renee. She answered every question we had quickly and with ease. She was a pleasure to work with. All of the staff is very warm and excellent at what they do.

It was absolutely the best place to have a wedding. The outdoor ceremony by the lake was gorgeous and everything was set up exactly like I had dreamed. The reception at the outdoor pavilion was magical. Renee and the whole staff at the resort were more than accommodating to our every need. They have various location for a reception and since we were such a small wedding the location we chose was perfect. The staff helps you with everything. They go above and beyond what you expect. They make sure your relax and enjoy your day. I highly recommend this location for a wedding in the Georgia Mountains.

The Ridges was an absolutely beautiful place to hold a wedding. All the staff at the Ridges were extremely helpful and very pleasant. The food was great and everything went as planned. Renee, the wedding coordinator, was wonderful to work with. My daughter and son-in-law said they loved every minute of their wedding day! I would say it was a huge success!
