On Sunday, January 5, a few members of our team joined numerous local wedding vendors for the Greater Fredericksburg Bridal Show. A morning of set-up led into an afternoon of meeting new brides, saying hello to our upcoming wedding couples, and chatting with vendor friends!
Winter is a fun time for us here at the Ridge. Events slow down, the organizing we’ve put off for months can finally happen, and we have bridal shows like these to look …
When we can’t stare at the computer screen for another minute, when that project just has to wait and we find our patience wearing thin… we just need a moment.
So, what do you do?
Personally, I keep a stack of essential oils next to my computer. If I’m feeling low or in need of focus, I’ll drop some oils on my skin and breathe deeply. I’m almost always listening to music, and the right playlist can be …
Although we are a hidden gem, Stevenson Ridge is in a prime location. We are located in Spotsylvania County, which neighbors Fredericksburg. We are one hour from both Richmond and D.C., and only 20 minutes from the very popular Historic Downtown Fredericksburg. When you’re out at The Ridge, you feel as if you’re a little bit further into the rural part of the county than you really are! This means you get the rolling hills and views of …
First Friday in Downtown Fredericksburg is a big deal for us townies! This month, though, it was an even bigger occasion. One of our chefs, Moe, and his band, The Transmitters, played at a local after-hours venue. Most of the office was able to make it out in support of Moe, and we had an awesome time!
What’s better than a summer evening and live reggae music?
Moe stands second from the left.
Do you recognize any of …
On Tuesday, May 7, 2019, we spotted a few new arrivals on the property. We stood by our pond and watched as Mother and Father Goose led 5 goslings to the water. That makes today about as close to their one-month birthday as we can pinpoint!
Since then, our goslings have grown so much! They are busy following Mom and Dad around the pond, feasting on seeds and grass, and just being the cutest little things ever. We …
Beautiful Booze is my first stop when looking for a festive and delicious cocktail. They never fail to provide fun new recipes for us “cocktail enthusiasts” to try! I stumbled upon this spring-inspired beverage and just had to share. A few items and a little time are all that stands between you and the perfect springtime refreshment. Enjoy!
Spring Gin & Tonic:
- 2-3 ounces of Seattle Cider Company Gin Botanical Cider
- 1.5 ounces of gin

“If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy, if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has power to move you, if the simple things in nature have a message you understand, rejoice, for your soul is alive.” — Eleonora Duse…
On Sunday, January 6, Jennifer, Cassandra and I snuck out of the office to represent Stevenson Ridge at the Greater Virginia Bridal Show of Fredericksburg. The three of us had a lovely time meeting and chatting with brides, as well as catching up with local vendor friends. We can’t wait for the next bridal show!
