Colleen and her staff are absolutely amazing! They made sure we had everything we needed anytime we needed anything! They truly love what they do and it shows in their actions! They made our wedding day and the week that we stayed there very pleasant! We didn’t have to worry about anything. It every rained the day we got married, but Colleen and her staff made sure that we had the best wedding!! We couldn’t have asked for a better wedding day!!!!

Richwood on the River was the setting for our daughter’s wedding on June 23, 2018. She and her fiancé could not have asked for a more beautiful day. Colleen and her staff make you feel at home from the first visit. The wedding coordinators made everything run smoothly. As the mother of the bride, I got to spend my time enjoying the entire weekend. The staff took care of everything from setting out tables to cutting the cake. If you have the chance to stay as a B & B guest, the ladies are tremendous cooks!!! I would recommend Ricjwwod to anyone who wants a romantic, comfortable, welcoming venue for the wedding of their dreams!

An awesome experience! My daughter got married last weekend. Colleen was superb to deal with. She has the experience of a wedding planner so she was extremely helpful in helping me make decisions! Very professional and very nice. Everything turned out as planned and it is a great venue! So nice to have the rehearsal dinner, breakfast, lunch, wedding, reception, all in one place! Highly recommend!
