    Awesome Wedding and Rehearsal Weekend

    We dreamed of a full wedding weekend with our bridal party at an awesome beautiful venue where no one had to leave once they showed up. We got that and more. Richwood is the absolute perfect wedding venue! Colleen and Kelsey were awesome to work with, answering all our questions big or small, morning or night. And on the day of the wedding they did not stop working, despite the (very hot) heat. The grounds are absolutely beautiful and DOG FRIENDLY. The mansion rooms were perfect for our guests who appreciate the history of the place and the cabins were spot-on for our bridal party and the young families staying with us. They have great recommendations for vendors, everything from flowers to food to photography. The staff were kind, helpful, and accommodating. We really did feel like it was ours for the weekend. The kids played in the pool, we played corn hole in the yard, and had breakfast in the mansion every morning. It was everything we wanted and we don’t even know all the things they did behind the scenes. For example, we held our rehearsal dinner on Friday with a completely different setup and linens (provided by the venue) from Saturday and the staff had it completely flipped for us to have plenty of time to reset the tables Saturday. They made our dream come true down to the smallest details we discussed during planning meetings. We can’t say enough about the small things like Kelsey repeatedly bringing water to the bride during rehearsal and keeping things moving. I HIGHLY recommend Richwood on the River as a wedding venue if you are looking for an indoor/outdoor venue with accommodations.

    Excellent and memorable experience

    As the mother of the bride, I couldn't have been happier. Colleen excels as a coordinator, and every detail of the ceremony and reception was perfection. All the wedding party stayed at Richwood which made for a fun-filled weekend.

    Amazing experience!

    Colleen and her team are absolutely amazing to work with! Everything was beautiful! She even brought me some appetizers while we were getting pictures! Overall five stars. We will be going back to enjoy the bed and breakfast!

Colleen Sutton

Owner/Operator

Being the owner/operator for Richwood on the River is a dream come true. A wonderful friend said to me during this process, “If your dreams don’t scare you, then you are not dreaming BIG enough!” I hold on to those words daily. Thanks Tania!

I hope to inspire my daughter, Ava Rose, to fully understand to follow her dreams and to always do what truly makes her happy. The money will follow. Hearing the laughter in the walls of the mansion from guests enjoying the warmth of a fire and the love of family and friends … is exactly what my hopes were and are for this property.

I love sharing my home with you and hope to have my small part in creating memories that will last a lifetime.

Kelsey Spence

Event Manager

Kelsey was born and raised in a small town in Southeastern Indiana. A graduate of Johnson & Wales University in Charlotte, NC, she took courses in wedding planning and special events and immediately fell in love with the industry.
Kelsey met Colleen in 2015 and began assisting Colleen with weddings for her business Ava Rose Event Design. That October Colleen purchased Richwood and Kelsey was more than happy to join the team.

Fast forward to 2018- Kelsey got married (at Richwood of course) and moved to the Cincinnati area to be closer to her husband’s job. She left her position at Richwood and started working in downtown Cincy. However, she missed working with all of our amazing wedding couples and guests, and decided to return! She has now resumed her role as Event & Social Manager and couldn’t be more thrilled to be back with her Richwood family and friends.
