Stunning Venue - Perfect Day
We had a long engagement and spent some time researching venues north of Dallas to plan our perfect day. This venue came up multiple times and caught our attention enough to book a tour. After seeing this place in person for the first time I think it is easily one of the most beautiful venues in that area, and if you are reading this and considering it for yourself you should go see it IN PERSON. The grounds are stunning and the gardens are well maintained. One of the greatest draws there is Lori, the manager. On our tour she was showing us pictures, and recounting the names of brides and dates of weddings 2 years prior, proving that she had fully invested in each one. Read more reviews and you should find her name in each one of them, for good reason! We finally booked the venue at one of their bi-annual open houses where you can enter raffles for GREAT prizes (which we definitely definitely recommend). Throughout the year, with all of the COVID progressions Lori constantly reached out and updated us on any changes or necessary information to continue reassuring us for our day. Another thing to note is there is an awesome AirBnB ON the property "Belle Manor" that we rented out for the night before and of the wedding. It made for a great place for the bridesmaids to sleep/get ready in the morning, and then for all of the bridal party and groomsmen to have a place to sleep after the event. All in all every guest that attended made comments about how beautiful the venue was and how they were surprised they hadn't heard of it before. I promise you if you are in the market for a venue AT ALL, it is well worth your time to go check this place out in person. We could not have had a more perfect day :)Sent on 09/19/2020

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
