    Absolutely Amazing Venue

    My husband and I got married here on 10/30/2020 in the middle of a pandemic... with temperatures lower than they had been...it rained, it snowed ... anything you could think of. But the amazing and wonderful people at Great River made it the most memorable day of our lives. To start, we booked Great River before the pandemic, and when things started to get bad, we wondered what we would do about the wedding. Luckily, when things started to change and look up here in Connecticut, Great River told us that they would be getting a tent to continue to safely host weddings and other events. We were so excited that our wedding was still on! They worked with us from start to finish on food tasting, cake tasting, rehearsal dinner planning and were so helpful, especially during this time of uncertainty. Of course, as I mentioned, the day before the wedding, heavy rains caused the tent to flood, but again the people at Great River worked with us to safely move everything into the ballroom. Every guest had their temperatures checked upon entry to ensure peace of mind as well as to keep everyone healthy and safe. A week has passed since the wedding and everyone is still talking about it, still sending each other pictures and still reminiscing about the wonderful moments we all shared together. Not to mention the AMAZING food. Everyone can't stop raving about how good the food was! If you want to have a memorable, relaxed, fun and overall wonderful wedding experience I cannot recommend Great River Golf Club enough!!

    Great River is everything a bride wants in a venue

    Great River is everything a bride wants in a venue. I don’t have enough great things to say. The entire staff was flawless. Chelsea always responded to my emails promptly and never made me feel like I had tons of annoying questions (which I am sure I did). She was very organized and asked me great questions to help me stay organized. Caitlin was my bridal concierge on the day of the wedding and I don’t have enough great things to say about her. She held our coats while we took photos outside, kept my bouquet in water (including overnight!), was always nearby when we needed to get into the bridal suite, had great suggestions for the photographers, and overall was just lovely to spend the day with. The food was just as we requested and the kitchen/serving staff did a great job. Everything occurred according to the timeline that I created with Chelsea. We held cocktail hour in Monty’s because of the cold weather and it had the coziest and most festive atmosphere. There is nothing I would have done differently!

    Great River Golf Club's reply:

    Sam, thank you so much for taking the time to leave us this review! We absolutely loved being a part of your & Sean's special day. It was our pleasure to serve you and your guests! Please come back and visit us soon!!! :)
