Wilderness Ridge wedding venue in Lincoln, NE, is the perfect place for a wedding with the elegance of a country club and the rustic charm of a woodland cabin. With gorgeous, manicured property, and several unique spaces that can accommodate weddings of all sizes, it’s a fantastic venue with an in-house culinary team that will help you put together the wedding of your dreams. Let me tell you more about what makes it an exceptional potential venue for your wedding!
Adjacent to Lincoln’s Wilderness Park, Wilderness Ridge is a private country club with an 18-hole Championship Golf Course, an upscale-casual restaurant with a delicious menu featuring steaks and seafood, and plenty of space for a gorgeous wedding. The course itself opened in 2001, and the clubhouse, aptly named “The Lodge” for its log structure, natural stone landscaping, and stuffed game, opened several years later.
Wilderness Ridge has several unique spaces that can be woven together to create a wedding day that is not only memorable but also uniquely you. The Wedding Island is situated on the first hole of the Talon Course and is a beautiful outdoor space that provides picturesque views from every angle. You will glide down a stone path surrounded by blooming flower beds to the love of your life, who will be waiting for you beneath the boughs of a stately oak tree overlooking one of the gorgeous ponds on the property. This space is perfect to accommodate up to 200 guests comfortably and 250 guests maximum.
The Yellowstone Ballroom is ideal for a large celebration, seating up to 275 of your favorite people. The ballroom has a distinctly lodge-like feel, with high vaulted ceilings and walls made entirely of warm, rustic wood logs. There is also a towering stone fireplace with a decorative mantle and an elegant chandelier made of decorative antlers. It’s the perfect setting for a cozy reception with a delectable meal. But also plenty of space to dance the night away! You and your guests will also love the wrap-around covered deck with views of the spectacular property.
If a smaller space is better suited to what you have in mind for your wedding, the Big Horn Room, The Blackfoot, and the Flathead Room all accommodate between 24 – 30 guests and have a similar signature rustic charm as the Yellowstone Ballroom.
The Wilderness Ridge property has so many gorgeous spots for us to take spectacular wedding photos. With acres of rolling green lawns, mature trees, and serene ponds and water features, we’ll be sure to capture pictures that will set an ethereal garden tone for your album. Indoors, the incredible wooden architecture and intricate stonework are perfect for intimate, romantic portraits of you and your partner. With incredible vistas and plenty of charm and character, Wilderness Ridge is an incredible spot for your dream wedding. Plus, I’ll be there to capture every moment of it in vivid detail so you’ll be able to look back and relive it again and again.
When you book your wedding at Wilderness Ridge, your guests will enjoy a spectacular meal curated by their in-house culinary team that reflects not only your vision for your wedding but also your tastes and personality as a couple.
Other perks included in a Wilderness Ridge wedding include event planning assistance (so you’ll never miss a detail!), set-up and tear-down services, a raised stage area for your band or DJ, centerpiece options, linens, napkins, glassware, and full table service. They also provide a dance floor, bar services, and even golf carts for you to easily access some of the most photogenic spots on the property!
