If there is one holiday that I love more than anything it is Christmas. There is something so beautiful about the decorations and the warmth that they bring to your house. Jeremy and I decided that instead of buying Christmas gifts for each other, we would spend a weekend up at our wedding venue – all decked out for Christmas. And boy, did The Ridges deliver!
It was absolutely beautiful, but I will let the pictures tell you more!
We arrived to The Ridges on Friday night. It was wonderful to pull in and see all the lights and trees everywhere. After we checked in, I went to see the decorations. It was just beautiful. This mantel is one that I wish was in our house because it is so gorgeous.
I also love that the decor they used was different. It’s not your typical Christmas decor, and I love that. I mean, look at the trees topper. So innovative.
I don’t want to know how they did it, but there is a wreath around the deer. How they did that, I don’t know. But it really pulled everything together beautifully.
I really loved the mantel-scape. It was so beautiful in person and really gorgeous. The pine cones were a wonderful addition. And all the trees up there were really beautiful too.
The mantel at night was truly breathtaking. So beautiful. Even though we were up in the mountains, it felt like home to us. Our visits always feel like that, but this weekend was even more special because of the fire going and the place not being that busy. It was just a wonderful weekend!
If you are ever up in the north GA mountains (or want to go up here), let me know. It is so beautiful up there and The Ridges is a wonderful place to stay.
Ooh – fun fact: The staff (mainly the front desk ladies) remembered us and our wedding. They are just too sweet and were so accommodating to us back in June and again this weekend.
Ever think of a romantic weekend away instead of gifts?
