Devon Gottsch
General Manager

Hi, hello!


Thank you for your interest in A Venue On the Ridge. My name is Devon, and I am the General Manager here. As my main goal is to make every couple feel celebrated, comfortable, and accommodated....my roots with AVOR go much deeper. My first job, was in fact, at A Venue On the Ridge....but much less glamorous. At 14, I started my "career" scraping dishes in the back during weddings, dreaming of one day being an integral part of someone's bid day here. Now, more than 10 years later, our fabulous owner, Amy Freshman, called me up and asked me to manage a space that has always meant a great deal to me. She gave me a shot, and now my 14-year-old dreams are now a reality. I get to live out every day doing what I love most....helping make beautiful memories and personalized experiences for our fabulous couples!


Not only do I have experience in the "Omaha Wedding World" working previously for a wonderful design company that served many couples in the area, but now I have harnessed that passion to the clientele side. I am your go-to girl throughout this whole process. From first meeting, to tours, consultations, tastings, and more, I am here for YOU through every step of the way. I'm even with you on your big day! This can be an overwhelming and scary experience, but I'm here to make sure it's far from such. Your personal hype woman through it all, I coordinate your vendors, timeline, and everything in between, so you two can focus on what really matters. From first contact to dancing the night away with you at your reception, you have me! This makes the process approachable, easy, stress-free, and seamless.


Our entire team, led by our wonderful husband and wife duo, have over 40+ years of shared wedding experience. Our owners, Bob and Amy Freshman, started as the caterers here when this building belonged to The Ridge golf course. When the opportunity came to buy the building, Bob and Amy continued doing what they love most...catering! To this day, the owners are still the ones in the kitchen the morning of your wedding making your menu from scratch, just as they did years before. Fresh Catering provides wonderful, in-house catering with custom menus to fit any palate. This emphasizes how much our owners and staff truly care about the quality of your big day!


Our staff as a whole is professional, kind, approachable, and is constantly emphasizing that YOU are our biggest priority. Our reviews speak for themselves, we are in the business of making wonderful memories for equally wonderful couples. Not only will you receive personalized experiences here, but every guest that walks into our building is treated like family, which perfectly reflects our own family values as a company. If you're ready for a seamless, stress-free, and stunning wedding day, then look no further. We'd love to chat with you, and show you first hand how A Venue On the Ridge can check all of your boxes & bring your vision to life!
