If you want to have the wedding of your dreams in a gorgeous, outdoor, country setting, with your reception in a beautiful indoor setting and work with the most accommodating people in the world, then River Road Chateau is the place for you. And there is more! We wanted 9 horses to be in the wedding! Not many beautiful places can accommodate horses in your wedding, but River Road Chateau went out of their way to accommodate our horses. The wedding meadow is tucked in a nook of the property down a short path, across a wooden bridge over a creek bed, and nestled in the trees. That beautiful pathway passes by gorgeous Italian gardens (in which you could choose to have your wedding) and, after you cross over the bridge, then leads you through double doors and down to the altar complete with wooden arch, crystal chandelier and, now, hitching posts off to the side, for those horses! On the other side of the wedding meadow is a beautiful, wide open pasture which made for amazing photographs with the wedding party, bride and groom all on horseback! Wait! There is more! Did I mention the fact that our groom and his family were from out of town and we needed accommodations for them close by? Not a problem for River Road Chateau! Right on the premises they have the most beautiful plantation style house newly remodeled and furnished to accommodate 15 guests with a living room and kitchen. It was so nice to be able to rent that lovely home instead of having to put everyone up in cold hotel rooms. The master suite is decorated in a beautiful silver/grey décor. It was so gorgeous we decided to use it for the bridal party to get ready in, instead of the beautiful bridal room that is available down in the reception hall. The reception hall also has a wonderful groom’s dressing area which our groom and his groomsmen hung out and dressed in. The Reception Hall also has beautiful chandeliers, gorgeous antique French entry doors, lots of side doors that can be slid open to reveal the two outdoor, covered patios your guests can over flow to in beautiful weather, a fabulous kitchen and bar area, and guest bath rooms. I really loved that part of the rental included glass water goblets and wine glasses and tables and chairs for 200 guests, among other details. Wait, there is more! Did I mention how amazing Lori, Krysti, Larry and the staff were? Absolutely incredible, from beginning to the very end. There wasn’t a moment that they were not on top of, making sure that my job was as smooth and easy as possible. They loved the horses and nothing about their needs intimidated them. We stretched everything to the limit but you would never have known that. The details of the day were turned over to them and I never had to worry about a thing because they took care of every detail. I was able to spend my time with my daughter and family while they made sure everything ran smoothly. They promised us the wedding of our daughter’s dreams, and they delivered! I can’t imagine having our wedding at any other venue! Thank you, Larry, Lori and Krysti!Sent on 11/14/2018
