The Villa




The Villa, one of Saphire Event Group’s premier wedding venues, is tucked away in the rolling greens of Ridder Country Club and contains three unique event spaces on one property. The Madera Ballroom, renovated in 2014, is perfect for couples that envision rustic elegance. The gorgeous wood accents and two bookend fireplaces create warmth and romance perfect for even the most intimate of events.
For couples with a more urban and chic style, the contemporary glamour of our Grand Ballroom boasts a stunning gold accented ceiling, breathtaking 14-foot linear fireplace, and a lounge that rivals even the most exclusive of venues in the city. If dancing under the stars is what you have in mind, the Tent is the perfect space to be surrounded by lush green lawns and serene woodlands. Our tented area has an amazing outdoor lounge with a contemporary fire pit to create the perfect blend of indoor and outdoor spaces for your event. Our award-winning venues have year after year been the recipients of WeddingWire’s “Couples’ Choice” award and The Knot’s “Best of Weddings” award, as well as having been inducted into its Hall of Fame. Every couple will have a personal wedding producer who is available throughout the planning process to assist with any detail, from menu planning to décor design and set up. Love amazing food? Our Executive Chef and dedicated culinary team will cater to our couple’s every whim. From signature cocktails, to dazzling display stations, to elegantly served dinners and extravagant desserts, we specialize in cuisine that reflects any taste, style, and event. All of our venues offer indoor and outdoor ceremony options, as well as ballrooms with gorgeous hardwood flooring. When you choose an SEG venue, you’ll have an exceptional event experience from start to finish.
