The River House exceeded all my expectations for my November 2020 wedding. The River House is a classy and elegant venue with up-to-date style and decor. Constance and the rest of the wedding planning team were very helpful in ALL aspects of my wedding- you can tell they have a love and passion for providing brides and grooms their dreams weddings, and I would recommend them to everyone. To this day my guests STILL tell me how beautiful my wedding was, and how flawless everything went and I owe it all to The River House!Sent on 01/14/2021

The Perfect Pour LOVES working events at The River House! This remarkable venue is unlike any in our town. You simply cannot beat the view, the helpful staff, and the wonderful amenities.
I always love working at the River House. With a beautiful view of the intercostal, a huge ballroom, elegant library area, and beautiful bay windows, there are plenty of gorgeous photo-ops!
River House has all the elegance of a country club and the casual sophistication of a country inn with spectacular water views from every window. The staff are professional and accommodating. This is a win win venue.
