A short drive from downtown Fredericksburg lies one of our favorite wedding venues. Stevenson Ridge offers everything for a wedding that a photographer could ask for. The outdoor ceremony site is right on a pond and a large tree offers the right amount of shade to cast the best light on the couple during the ceremony. There is also a great indoor ceremony location and has these wood beams that give it such character.

      The ballroom at Stevenson Ridge is open and airy and can fit up to 216 guests. Natural light comes in from the windows on the Northwest side with these beautiful chandeliers.

      The outdoor patio makes for a great spot for cocktail hour and family portraits.

      From a photographer’s perspective there are these awesome barn doors on the front of the building that work really well as a backdrop for bridal portraits.

      Another location on the property that just struck my eye was the entrance. The entrance is lined with trees and makes for the perfect leading lines to bring the eye to the subject.

      Lastly, we have to talk about the staff. Such a friendly and knowledgeable staff that are attentive and great to work with. They will take care of you before, during, and after your wedding day.
