Our venue is a unique setting bordering the Rio Grande River on 2 acres of lush green grass and trees. There are stairs leading directly from the river to the lawn, to a flower lined, grassy aisle that opens onto the riverside ceremony space. Should you want a "fantasy" arrival via riverboat… your guests can stand along the riverbank to greet you as you float by and then take their seats for your entry into the ceremony space.
We provide a list of established caterers and photographers or we can connect you to a wedding planner if you prefer. We do not provide tables or set-up, but we have ample facilities for all your needs, such as stringing lights or music/entertainment set-up. A dance floor is required and can be rented nearby. Tents are welcome but are not supplied, although some of our couples have a small tent on hand in case of a sprinkle. Most prefer an outdoor event that goes into the sunset with dining and dancing in the open air along the riverfront. There is some parking onsite as well as additional parking nearby with shuttle service.
There are many lovely bed and breakfasts nearby for your guests' accommodations and two acclaimed local wineries to visit for tasting. You may also raft down the river directly to our property, take the steps from the river to the lawn, and turn on the grill! This is a great idea for an "after rehearsal" treat.
In our $2,500 wedding package, we provide a full day before the ceremony for rehearsal and dinner, a full day for preparation / ceremony dinner and dancing, and a half day afterwards for break-down and check out. More details are available on our website www.riverparadiseweddings.com.
We look forward to booking your ceremony and at our venue and helping you plan the wedding of your dreams.

This venue is amazing! Driving up to the property, you have no idea what to expect. When you enter the private drive, you are welcomed by a beautiful lawn and adobe house. The ceremony was held in the back of the property where there is an even more amazing view. When it says this location is on the river, they aren't kidding! The river can be seen in all my wedding photos and the guests loved the atmosphere. The property is well maintained and everything was perfectly groomed on the day of the ceremony. The venue director was prompt at returning my calls and recommended a wonderful company that catered the reception. We paid to stay an extra night in the home, and it was well worth it. The weather was beautiful and, although there were many sleeping accommodations available, staying on the screened porch was so relaxing. There is nothing like being on the river, and this property is an ideal location for it. Five stars and two thumbs up for sure :)Sent on 02/12/2015
