    A Perfect Wedding - Pandemic Style

    We fell in love with Richwood on the River the moment we saw it, and after meeting Colleen, we knew that it was where we wanted to get married. The grounds, the beautiful mansion house, rolling green hills, and the Ohio River were just the backdrop we were looking for. The interior spaces are comfortable and with all of our family coming in from out of town, we loved that we could make it a whole wedding weekend without leaving the property. We stayed for the 3 nights around the wedding and everyone at Richwood made us feel like family.

    When we decided to get married in July 2020, we never could have imagined that we would be hosting a wedding in the middle of a pandemic. The presence of the Richwood team, and particularly Colleen, was comforting as we navigated the unknown in the weeks and days leading up to the big day. We wanted to take all of the necessary precautions for keeping guests safe during the pandemic and her team didn't miss a beat. Colleen’s organization is unmatched and she is able to anticipate needs and act upon them. We absolutely loved all of the recommended vendors we worked with and the Richwood team was in contact with them to make the day ran smoothly. Colleen does whatever she can to make everything special. She is pleasant to work with, professional, quick to respond, and a wonderful person all around. A million thanks to everyone at Richwood on the River - we hope to see you soon. We highly recommend Richwood on the River for any event, and wish we could get married there every year!

    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.
