My daughter, her fiancé, and I visited three sites in search of the perfect wedding venue. Cedar Ridge was our unanimous choice. The landscaping, stone patios and walkways, perfectly manicured lawn, mature trees, and blooming plants are gorgeous, and since Cedar Ridge is nestled in the rural, rolling hills of northwest Mississippi, there are no jets thundering overhead and no traffic noise. This was important because my daughter wanted an outdoor wedding, and since the weather can be unpredictable, we needed a back-up plan. Cedar Ridge can quickly transition from outdoor to indoors, seating up to 150 in the pool house, which is also a sight to behold.
While the beauty of the grounds and pool house placed Cedar Ridge at the top of our list, Debbie Smith’s experience and expertise sealed the deal. Our criteria was very demanding. For us, the perfect venue would provide the wedding coordinator, offer a diverse menu, flowers, cakes, sound system -- you name it. Cedar Ridge did all of this and more. All we had to do was choose the photographer and minister.
At the rehearsal, wedding coordinator Becky Smith, walked us through everything -- answered all of our questions and concerns. On the day of the wedding, she made sure everyone and everything was in place. We started exactly on time. As we transitioned from the ceremony, to dining, to cake cutting, to first dances, to bouquet and garter tosses, to the exit by the bride and groom, Becky kept everything on track, gently reminding us where we needed to be and what we needed to do. She was perfect. The atmosphere after dark was incredible. And while we were having the time of our lives, a professional staff worked tirelessly behind the scenes keeping everything fresh, cleaning up, and making sure my daughter’s wedding was everything we envisioned. Cedar Ridge scores a perfect 10 in my book. I highly recommend Cedar Ridge Events.
Beautiful venue!!! Can't say enough about how beautiful everything is! Food is delicious and staff is amazing and very helpful! Management is kind, gracious, detail oriented, organized, friendly, and hard working. We had our daughter's weddings at Cedar Ridge 5/2/15.
Everything was more than we could've hoped for! Simply wonderful! Can't say enough good about the Smith family or their venue!! We highly recommend Cedar Ridge!
