River's Bend at the Ponderosa

River’s Bend at the Ponderosa is a private, natural paradise with over 700 feet of river frontage on the beautiful North Saluda River.  The easy breeze and the soft current that flows down out of the Blue Ridge Mountains brings with it a peaceful, effortless feeling of relaxation that washes over everyone who visits.  Noble trees, and wild grape and muscadine vines canopy the woodlands, and preside over the grounds as silent witnesses to the sacred promises made by those who marry here.

When you picture having participated in the wedding of your dreams, years from now, where it took place will be among the first things you remember.  If that place was in a beautiful, natural outdoor setting, with a winding river meandering by, and a majestic 200-year-old tulip tree present, it will be something that will always bring the biggest smile to your face.


That is exactly what we created River’s Bend for – a unique wedding venue that is so picturesquely beautiful and memorable, that everyone who was at a wedding there will never forget it.


Make Memories.
