    Amazing Venue and Staff

    Kimberly went above and beyond to make sure our day was perfect! The hiccups that were thrown into our plan because of the pandemic were seamlessly resolved to make sure we had everything we envisioned.

    Rio Plaza's reply:

    Thank you so much for your kind words, Hope. We really appreciate you taking the time out to share your experience with us at Rio Plaza and we agree, there were many hiccups but what a story for the books! We wish you and Joseph a bountiful and joyous future!

    Great space, wonderful staff

    We had a great experience with Rio Plaza. Unfortunately, the pandemic required us to postpone our wedding celebration. Although we had a small hiccup in communication due to staff turnover during the pandemic, the owner and other staff were extremely quick to remedy the situation. They were fantastic and very flexible in helping us plan our reception. We were able to go look at the space more than once, and we met several times with the owner and Kimberly to go over details. Kimberly was so kind and prompt in all her communication, and was very attentive on the day of the wedding. It seemed that anything I thought to ask, she had already thought of and accommodated! The wait staff was great, and all our guests expressed how much they enjoyed the venue. After having such a wonderful experience with Rio Plaza, I feel I can highly recommend this venue!

We've had the pleasure of creating stunning one of a kind invitations for several brides using this facility for their rehearsal dinner. We have heard nothing but kind words about them...I would recommend calling them sooner than later to tour the grounds before your special day is all booked up!
