Welcome to Denison Ridge!

I’m Teri and I am glad you decided to drop by.  Here at Denison Ridge we work on Perfecting Dreams. Dreams of a magical moment in time –  your wedding, and dreams of owning your own wedding venue business.

Like you, I juggle many responsibilities. I’m a wife, mom to 4, grandmother to 4 (so far), business owner, author, and a blogger. The website and blog were created to be a spring board for Perfecting Dreams, a tool. What do I have to share, read on!

Keeping things simple and organized is usually a top priority for most of us and certainly is for me. Every time my husband and I talk about doing or adding something to the venue we remind each other of our motto – “Simplify”! If there is a way to make things easier and more efficient we want it.

I love to problem solve and think on my feet, qualities that have come in handy when running a wedding venue. I’ve been told that I add a calming effect to… what can be, a stressful day. This makes me happy!!

I love being able to help, not because you can’t do it yourself, but because many hands make light work. There is an energy created by working on exciting projects together. I love, love, love seeing others succeed and moving forward.

My blog and website reflect the many adventures of being a backyard wedding venue owner.

More about Teri:

Grew-up living on acreage where we grew apples and  pears.

Rattlesnakes were a given in our backyard every summer.

During my younger years very involved with horses and 4-H.

Hair stylist for 10 years before children.

Married for 38 years, lives on 20 acres in rural Washington and loves the country lifestyle.

A home-school mom for over 25 years.

I love the Lord God with all my heart.

You can find me hanging out with the children and grandchildren, working in my huge yard or vegetable garden, and serving families at the venue. I have an ongoing project of decorating my house of 18 years; this project is always pushed to the bottom of the list… I wonder why? Life is a grand adventure, NEVER boring.

Once again, welcome to the  Ridge. If you have questions just ask!

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
