When you arrive at our beautiful River Edge Venue you will see our 1880's cozy Bed and Breakfast farm house with carriage house, along with our 1917 barn with silo, rustic outbuilding and old fashioned wishing well. We offer 3 gorgeous locations for brides to hold their ceremonies--the scenic wooded overlook, the river terrace site, and the river edge site. Each offers its own special view of the river and scenic backdrop--All of this combines for a totally unique photo opportunity.

One advantage we have with our Bed & Breakfast, is our ability to offer our beautiful enchanting farm home as a private setting for the newlyweds to spend their wedding night.

One of the first things that brides and wedding planners alike have noticed when entering our beautiful pavilion for the first time is the neutral, clean white interior, which will accommodate any type of wedding theme or decor from rustic to contemporary.

The pavilion offers our brides a single large 40' x 100' area for ALL your guests to share your special day with you under one roof. Our guests love the open sides option with ceiling fans for complete ventilation and spectacular scenery on the warmer days. The pavilion has been thoughtfully located with a prime view of the river and scenic backdrop, and is equipped with commercial duty roll down tent curtains with cathedral windows for unparalleled versatility. A wide open cathedral and beam ceiling offers character and endless decorating opportunities. Ceiling fans with plenty of dimmable lighting will provide your guests with the feel and atmosphere that you are looking for.

If you are thinking about a nostalgic gentleman farm type setting or a scenic natural outdoor venue for your wedding, we would love to personally meet with you and show you what we have to offer. In our opinion we have a unique wedding venue unlike any other in West Michigan.

Feel free to call us and arrange a personal tour of the home and property. We understand how important such a decision is for you and can help you plan your dream wedding. See our website http://www.riveredgebnb.com and facebook for more pictures.

    Beautiful Venue

    Mid September wedding and it was beautiful! We loved the ceremony location and the fact that the reception was on the same site. Everything went very smoothly. They do take you out on the property for sunset photos so make sure to plan your time accordingly. We had to head out right after dinner and when we got back guests were leaving so knowing that, I would have moved the ceremony earlier by an hour. But we took our time and hit all the spots (pictures are the part that will last forever so get them all!) Otherwise it was perfect. We also opted to stay the night in the B&B and I highly recommend doing so. Makes the night easier and more relaxed and breakfast is provided as well.

    Wedding Venue 10/16/2021

    I got married at River Edge on 10/16/2021 and it was amazing. The venue is so beautiful next to the river in Lowell, MI and the owners Bill and Brenda make the experience that much better! The day of my wedding was effortless all thanks to Bill and Brenda. They went above and beyond to being available to answer any questions to providing a heater last minute in the changing room for the cold weather. I could not ask for a better venue to have my wedding at.

We talked extensively with Bill & Brenda at River Edge Bed & Breakfast & Gathering Place as they built their pavilion this past spring. It was fun to watch it go up and be able to offer our perspective on what brides and grooms are looking for. Both Bill and Brenda are very focused on meeting the needs of their guests and offering a beautiful venue on the Flat River to host both your ceremony and reception. They are very thoughtful about what works well from both a guest perspective and a vendors needs. When catering an event, it is so important to have a great relationship with the venue in order to ensure that our mutual client is well served. It is so nice to work with yet another venue that puts guest satisfaction first! Great job River Edge! We look forward to many years of working together!
