    We loved EVERYTHING about the River House

    The River House Events venue is the perfect spot, especially for weddings. We had so many compliments on how beautiful it was, and we really didn't have to do much to decorate! It's already beautiful as it is. Constance and Sarah are very easy to work with and they are very quick with responding to emails and phone calls for any questions. The price might seem high at first, but it includes so much and the vendors they work with are amazing - so take a look at their list before searching for your own. I am so glad we had our wedding at the River House. I would do it again in a heartbeat. Our day was perfect! Thank you, Constance!

    Beautiful venue for a wedding! Spectacular views of the water!

    The River House was a gorgeous place for a wedding! The building is beautiful and elegant and sits directly on the water, so the views are spectacular as the sun sets. Although it rained on our wedding day, they had the most stress-free "back up plan" inside the Grand Ballroom and it was still just as beautiful inside still facing the water through windows. Constance and the River House team were very experienced and so sweet and wonderful to work with, and we appreciate all they did to make planning as smooth as possible! The venue also has parking and a kitchen for the catering company to work out off, which are both very important but often overlooked necessities! We couldn't have chosen a better place for our wedding and would highly recommend River House!
