The Kestrel Ridge Experience

I am a wedding photographer and photographed a wedding at Kestrel Ridge Golf Course in July 2023 and it was such a fun venue to work at! The reception space and the outdoor ceremony area overlook the golf course. I would definitely recommend booking your wedding here!
My husband and I got married here in April and I would definitely recommend this venue!! Nickie was so helpful and made the wedding day completely stress free. The outdoor ceremony space and reception hall are beautiful and the food was amazing! So grateful for everyone at Kestrel!
My husband and I were married here on 8/27/22. Everything leading up to the wedding was amazing: Nickie is extremely personable, communicative, and on top of it. She made us feel at ease from the very first day we booked the venue, because we knew we could trust her. It conveniently rained the one hour we were supposed to have our ceremony, moving us unexpectedly inside: while it was disappointing we couldn't enjoy the gorgeous outdoor space, the indoor ceremony all came together without a hitch. Our guests had a BLAST and loved the beauty of the venue and the amazing food. I fully recommend that other couples get married at Kestrel Ridge!
My husband and I got married here on 9/10/22 and would definitely recommend it! The outdoor ceremony space is beautiful and the reception area has a large bar and patio attached to it. Everything was included with the space (tables, chairs, linens, etc) so we didn’t need to worry about renting anything. Nickie is the day of coordinator and was amazing to work with. Her expertise and communication made it as stress free as possible! The entire staff the day of were very helpful and friendly. They helped set everything up and took it all down for us to pick up the next day so we didn’t have to worry about anything the day of. And the food was amazing!! We received so many compliments on it (some even said it was the best wedding food they’ve ever had). I never had a doubt that my wedding day would be perfect thanks to this venue and the staff.
We had our wedding here on 7/30/22. We loved everything about our day! Nickie was so accommodating and really helped relieve stress off this bride!!! We toured and we’re back within the week to book because we knew it was perfect for us! We were engaged & married in 9 months and everyone was so helpful with our timeline. The staff went above and beyond to make sure we knew exactly what was going on during the day & had everything ready for us. They packed everything for us to pick up sometime within the following few days but there was never any rush to get out! The place is gorgeous so there’s no need to go crazy on decor! If we had to do it all again, we’d choose kestrel ridge over and over!!
My husband and I got married here. It was absolutely beautiful! Nickie was amazing to work with, making sure things were done at the right time and walking us through the craziness of planning a wedding. The food was amazing, both rehearsal and reception dinner! Bartenders were fun and did really well working with the guests! We are so glad we chose Kestrel Ridge for our special day and will also gladly go back for the fish fry!
The entire staff at Kestrel Ridge was amazing to work with! Nickie was so helpful through the entire process. She was responsive, helpful with all of the details, and extremely organized to work with. Kestrel Ridge handles so many of the little details you don't think about that it helps make the day go so smooth. Emily helped with our wedding day and she made everything flow seamlessly. The grounds are beautiful and the food was great. We got so many compliments on the venue as a whole. I would recommend Kestrel Ridge to anyone!
