The Villa at Ridder Country Club Wedding
I am so excited to share this wedding with everyone at the beautiful, Villa at Ridder Country Club located in East Bridgewater, Massachusetts. The property is a converted 250-acre dairy farm, just 30 miles south of Boston, Jon Ridder knew it was time to pursue his dream. Working with notable landscape architects, Henry Holhman and Geoff Cornish, he began converting the lush, green property into a challenging 18-hole public golf course. At its heart was the barn his family built in 1918, which he turned into the clubhouse. For 40 years that clubhouse, nestled amidst over 250 acres of perfectly manicured lawns and woodlands, was one of Plymouth County’s most exclusive private event venues, hosting thousands of weddings, outings, and special occasions. In 2008, Jonathan and Amie Saphire took over the clubhouse and set about transforming it into their dream setting: a sophisticated Mediterranean-inspired events venue for weddings, receptions, fund raising galas, corporate events, and other celebrations. Today, The Villa provides an unrivaled location in southeastern Massachusetts, offering dramatic spaces, elegant appointments, the most up-to-date amenities, and endless possibilities for those who wish to create the event of their dreams.
I was honored to be a part of Kourtney & Christopher’s special day and I am happy to share a first look of their beautiful wedding with you. A special thanks to everyone at The Villa for being so accommodating. And lastly, a thank you to all of the wedding professionals that had a part of making this wedding day amazing for this great couple. I can’t wait to photograph another wedding at the Newport Vineyards. Here is a glimpse of Lisa and Justin’s wedding day, thanks for taking a look.
