What Couples are Saying:

“I don’t know where to start. Riverside Receptions was the best decision we could have made for our wedding reception. Frances is no joke, extremely professional, kind, helpful, and one of the sweetest people I’ve ever met. The whole staff is wonderful too, Amy and Jessica helped along the way and always got back to me quickly whenever I’d reached out with a question. Our wedding ceremony and reception were perfect and I have Riverside to thank forever! The food… INCREDIBLE! BEST chicken I’ve ever had, everything was amazing and was served hot food hot, cold food cold! The service was outstanding and the staff all friendly and accommodating. My husband and I LOVED how us and the head table was served with the staff parading out to kick off our entree course! I can’t compliment enough, choose this venue if you want the best experience!” – Marissa B


“Riverside was such an amazing venue to get married and I couldn’t be more happy with how everything turned out. I dont even know where to start because everything was so perfect. Francis and Tina were so great to work with! Francis did our initial meeting and let us secure the venue and had great communication with me throughout the process and was with me on the day of my wedding. She was so kind, organized, and easy to work with! Tina helped me with my details meeting and really listened and customized my day to exactly how I wanted everything and was also just so kind and easy to work with!! The entire staff for the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception were so accommodating, friendly and just so great to work with! Now let’s talk about the venue space itself. Its GORGEOUS! You could truly get married and have none of your own decorations and it would turn out completely stunning. I used some decorations to accent things and put my personal touch on it but you truly dont need much because of how beautiful and unique this place is. Tons of brick, floor to ceiling windows that look out onto the river, fireplaces, everything is stunning! There are so many places in the venue to take gorgeous photos but also outside and all around the venue is completely gorgeous. I cant recommend Riverside enough.” – Beth B
