We LOVE Rich’s!!

We decided on Rich’s based off of another wedding we had gone to, we loved everything about it: the decor, the spacious building, the bridal suite, the convenience of everything being so close. We met Maureen and were sure that we needed to get married there! The entire process was seamless. Maureen was amazing with quick communication, professional recommendations, and doing what she could to make our day special! It rained on our day so every envision and plan I had was changed for the pre-wedding process, but Maureen was so helpful and made it so that although our plans changed, it was just as special and beautiful! From beginning to end, everything was wonderful. I would recommend Rich’s to anyone and everyone!

Perfect wedding!!

Maureen and her team were excellent! She was responsive and helpful and foresaw things that we would have missed. The day went off without a hitch and they were there every step of the way to make it happen. The food was incredible and so was the venue. Wouldn’t have changed a single thing. Perfect wedding venue and team!
