The Perfect Venue

Not only is Ruthven absolutely stunning anytime of the year (inside and out!) - the staff are incredible too. Kelly was patient, knowledgeable and super fun to work with. I would recommend Ruthven to anyone who wants a unique and picturesque wedding venue.

Kelly and the team at Ruthven absolutely blew my husband and I away! Not only are the grounds naturally beautiful, but you can really tell that the staff at RPNHS care about this beautiful estate!

We had our wedding ceremony inside the Coach House on 31/10/15 - it is an absolutely beautiful venue! I could not be happier with the way our photographs turned out - we couldn't have asked for a better backdrop than the grounds and buildings at Ruthven!
The staff is friendly and helpful and super quick at responding to inquiries.
Even after our wedding day they provided this level of service! We had an issue with some missing decor and called up the office for assistance. We didn't have to drive back out to Cayuga ourselves, they graciously helped us out and were as kind to us as they were the day we booked our Ceremony date.

Beautiful venue and amazing service, they were so helpful in every step of the way. Ruthven was flexible when we ran into some issues with our tent and allowed us to set up early. They were easy to contact and even provide us with a planning package with local contacts to assist us in planning our wedding!
