Mr. Bill at Courtyard helped us so much with our wedding. We chose this venue because the food is wonderful and they even created a signature drink for us!We have recommended Courtyard to 2 other couples that are getting married in 2011. They are setting appointments to go and see menus, but loved ours!The wait staff and everyone at the Courtyard went above my expectations and our families were treated with respect and the price was very good and alot of extras were added that we didn't even expect. I recommend Courtyard on the Ridge for your reception and your wedding if you don't have a church. It is just beautiful and private. My grandfather is handicapped and he was able to be totally involved because he could navigate everywhere in this placeSincerely, Brandi
Remarkable how Courtyard on the Ridge is extremely accommodating to all of your needs and will even go as far as a do-it-all one-stop shop from cake to DJ to recommending a photographer/ videographer. The expert staff picked out my cakes all the way to the cuisine options, I am amazed at how stress-free the process was for me!Featuring uniquely styled spaces; open-air, lighted New Orleans Style courtyard with water fountain décor; their experienced coordinators helped me design the wedding of my dreams with the style and panache my husband and I felt we deserved!As far as the big day goes:From the champagne greeting, Courtyard on the Ridge creates a WOW effect that made every moment memorable.The bridal room was the perfect getaway for me to escape from the constant fury of friends and family trying to get in their congrats. I was able to relax on the couch and touch up my make-up and hair while one of the staff brought me a glass of champagne.They also have a bridal party room where the bridal party and us can eat in privacy when we arrive.I enjoyed escaping into a romantic niche they have with eloquent décor for my husband and I to take a few picture with our photographer.Thanks to the award-winning chef, the menu was everything I could imagine plus more! The food was all prepared with fresh ingredients, there were never frozen items passed around there!Staff was quick to clean up finished plates and empty cups without asking or even thinking.The champagne and boxes of food to take with us back to our honeymoon suite was perfect for a late night snack (and breakfast the next morning!)I still cannot understand how cost effective my reception was for the value I received. It was a five star glamorous event that my guests have not stopped raving about. I felt like a Queen on our wedding day and I know my Husband felt like Royalty himself!Thanks, Hailey
Service was incredible constantly hustling to fill chafing dishes with fresh food, pick up trash, offer new beverages, pass appetizers, etc.Facility impeccably clean from the bar to the bathroomBand was able to continue later than originally planned.Huge dance Floor so everyone could dance and enjoy the music.Plenty of seating room for eating and relaxing.Ample Serving Stations to choose from.When they say you get what you pay for.. that is not the case with Courtyard on the Ridge: You get more!My expectations were exceeded!Cristina
The wedding reception at Courtyard on the Ridge was absolutely gorgeous. It was a pleasure working with the staff and the food more than met our expectations. I am still receiving complements on the food and venue. I would definitely recommend Courtyard to anyone planning an event.The dance floor is huge and there was more than enough seating. Overall, everything was fantastic.
