Best Decision Ever!
A HUGE thank you to Lori and the whole River Road team for helping us have the wedding of our dreams! This venue is absolutely beautiful, especially with the recent remodel. This was a huge selling point for us, since I did not want to spend much time or money on decor. This venue doesn't need it! The venue manager, Lori, was soooooo great to work with. Always quick to respond, flexible and easy-going, and so friendly! I knew from the beginning that we were in good hands with her. Whenever I spoke with her, she made me feel like ours was their only wedding and highest priority, despite the fact we got married during one of the busiest months of the year. So many of our guests complimented the venue, commenting on how beautiful it was. I don't doubt that choosing this venue was one of the best wedding decisions we made!!Sent on 12/06/2019
River Road Chateau's reply:Thank you so much for your sweet compliments and for being such a fun bride to work with, Hillary! I loved you and Matthew and the wonderful, easy vibe you both brought to your wedding. It was our pleasure to work with you and your families! ~Lori

Fairytale dreams came true
River Road was basically a fairytale come true. To be honest I was a thrift bride and unsure what I'd be able to afford. But my husband (then fiance) and I decided to save up for this venue because it is simply perfect as is. If you don't have a dime to spend on any other decor, this venue will still be gorgeous on your big day. Chandeliers and stone everywhere!
The staff is practically perfect in every way, providing care and attention to detail for your every need. All my questions were answered timely and sweetly, I was never treated as petty or a bridezilla. Lori had such patience with me, helping me move the tables exactly where I wanted them as Kathy did in driving me in my giant dress on the golf cart from the house to the ceremony meadow.
AND if you have not yet seen Belle Manor, you need to! We were able to rent the house for our extensive out-of-town bridal party, making our wedding day preparations and aftermath comfortable and convenient. There was nothing better than leaving to my sparkler exit, walking over to the house with my husband, and being able to immediately get comfortable and relax.
There are numerous factors that made me feel like a princess on my big day, but River Road is most definitely at the top of that list. Location, services, style, and staff are all impeccable and I would recommend them to anyone!
p.s. They're Disney fans too, in case anyone is looking!Sent on 10/24/2019
River Road Chateau's reply:Thank you so much, Ashleigh! You were a gem to work with and my staff and I truly enjoyed every minute with you and your wonderful family. We truly try our best to make every wedding day special and I'm so glad to know we helped make yours one to remember! Don't be a stranger! ~Lori

Best venue ever!!
Not only is this place beautiful but their staff is incredible! This place is always lined with flowers and blooming with green! Its the perfect place for any and all wedding vibes! Lori and her staff makes the planning process so easy and she is super quick with responses! We didn't have a planner for the day of and they were so helpful with placing apps out and little things like candle lighting! They also have this GORGEOUS house on property that sleeps 13, called Belle Manor. It was so fun to get ready here and have everything in the house for the night of. So glad we chose RRC!!Sent on 09/23/2019
