Brad and Donna bought this charming farm in 2010 naming it after Donna’s beloved quarter horse, Bandit. They envisioned their children getting married here & with others inquiring, their dream came true. They have resided in South Carolina, Florida & Virginia which offers you & your guests’ a bit of that Southern charm. You will feel right at home with their love for hosting events!

It’s ADA compliant, heated & air conditioned, prep kitchen, dance floor, bar area, & fire pit. The bride & groom each have their separate places to get dressed. This venue offers you many options for your wedding ceremony. It is both warm and inviting that anyone who visits will fall in love with it. No matter what you are planning, they are ready to help make your special event a celebration you will always remember! With pride, but humility, they offer Bandit’s Ridge to you for your special day.
Jen Thompson, Event Staff & Financials
I have known Donna & Brad over 15 years and have the privilege of working alongside of them at Bandit’s Ridge. I am part of an amazing team and feel so blessed to work with our brides. Managing the finances are a huge part of my duties but I enjoy working at weddings and events at other times. With the addition of floral arranging, you will see more of me. Other than working at the venue, I enjoy designing & cooking.
I have been working at Bandit’s Ridge for over a year and love every second of it. I would have never thought that I would have my dream job at 24 while growing my own business in the meantime! When I am not planning events or working as the manager at Bandit’s Ridge, you can find me getting my fitness fix or hanging out with my fur-babies! I have a creative mind and I am able to visualize any idea that is thrown at me, which is important in this business. I look forward to creating the perfect event for everyone that walks on the property. We all take pride in making every one feel welcomed and relaxed when they come to Bandit’s Ridge!
