Amazing experience at Great River

We loved everything about our experience with the team at Great River. From the first tour of the space with Chelsea, to the day of with Caitlin, Madison & Lucy, to the follow up post event, everyone was kind, professional, and extremely helpful. Our guests loved the dinner and we loved the fact that we could offer four meal options. Don’t sleep on their chicken- it is the best catered chicken I’ve ever had. The coordinators and bridal concierge team handled everything for us including set up, clean up, running the rehearsal, and making sure everyone was where they were supposed to be throughout the day. It absolutely poured all day, and they made the rain locations feel like the original plan. Caitlin kept me calm when things had to change, and Madison & Lucy made sure I was dry and warm during any down time. They even made sure my husband and I had water while we were taking endless pictures! I can’t say enough about Great River.

Great River is the perfect wedding venue

We had our wedding reception at Great River in early September and it was the most amazing day. The entire team at Great River is kind, helpful, and professional. The venue is absolutely gorgeous, and they handle it all, the food and coordinating with your vendors, and even have relationships with several bakeries to choose your cake from. The whole process couldn’t be smoother, Caitlin is a joy to work with, she answered every question and concern we had. Chef Matt is phenomenal at what he does. From our food tasting to the week of the wedding he made sure every detail was perfect. Our friends and family are still talking about the delicious food a month later! Abby was my bridal concierge and she was so attentive, I didn’t have to worry about a thing except just enjoy our wedding day! The entire team at Great River is incredible. We highly recommend Great River for any special event. They will certainly make it very special and memorable!
