We got married at Richwood on 11.4.17. It was the fairytale setting for any wedding. The charm of the place is truly amazing! Everyone absolutely loved it and many of our guests have made plans to come back and take advantage of the bed and breakfast. We rented the whole place for the weekend and had our immediate family and bridal party stay. Colleen and Kelsey are extremely helpful and easy to talk to. I asked kelsey a million questions in the months prior to our wedding and she was very helpful every time. Anything I asked of them they were able to accommodate or to make suggestion. I would recommend Richwood to anyone! They are amazing!! Day of the wedding everything was crazy but Kelsey was able to navigate us through and everything went off without a hitch!!

Richwood on the River is the PERFECT wedding venue. We were just married here on 10/7/17. The staff at Richwood was AMAZING! At our final details meeting Colleen covered everything you could possibly imagine. There was no way anything was going to be left out. I also felt so free to communicate with both Colleen and Kelsey throughout this entire planning process. I always felt so important to them as they responded quickly and thoroughly.
We rented the property for the entire weekend of the wedding, and our immediately family and bridal family loved staying on the property. Colleen was unbelievably helpful throughout. I always felt like my wedding weekend was her number one priority, no matter what. She is professional, fun, organized, and kind.
The morning of the wedding things got a little stressful (as I imagine many weddings due), but particularly as the threat of rain increased throughout the day. I was set on having our ceremony outdoors, but also beyond overwhelmed at making the decision to potentially postpone the wedding 15 mins or more. Colleen knew exactly what to do and made the call and had her staff out drying chairs and we were able to have our ceremony outside as planned!!! I 100% attribute that win to Colleen and the ceremony was perfect. She had already worked with our DJ/MC to make sure we still had music at the ceremony site even though he couldn't set his equipment up as originally planned. Everything went off without a hitch, as if we had planned it this way from the start.
The carriage house is also a gorgeous setting for the wedding reception. We went to max capacity with our guest list (approx. 150) and the room fit everyone perfectly. It felt intimate without feeling cramped.
I feel like I could write a book about all of the wonderful details about Richwood (in fact, it looks like I already have), but in all seriousness, I am incredibly pleased with our choice of venue, and thankful to the staff who made it unforgettable!

Richwood on the River and their staff accommodated all our needs for our daughter's wedding. There is not one thing we would've changed. We highly recommend this venue, along with their staff.
