Angelica · Married on 05/25/2019
Iris and her husband’s River School Farm was perfect for our wedding. They are kind, thoughtful, and accommodating. The flowers and greenery gave us the perfect feelings to our special day. We had about 80+ guests and it was intimate and cozy. Everyone had room to mingle. It is right by the Truckee river, which was wonderful to listen to. We rented the house accords the bridge as our Airbnb for my bridal party and family. It was perfect.Sent on 06/11/2019
River School Farm's reply:Thank you Angelica. We are happy you enjoyed our place and were able to rent the Airbnb across the river.

River School Farm was our wedding venue on 10/7/2017 and we absolutely loved it. Tom and Iris were amazing to work with and allow you to set up the grounds however you want. They have an awesome dance floor area (we didn't rent a floor) with a bunch of party lights and they stock a firepit with wood right next to it. The grounds are huge with a bunch of space. RSF is right on the river and our pictures are perfect! River School Farm makes the venue portion of a wedding stressless. We cannot say enough great things. Definitely would recommend to anyone who wants an outdoor wedding.Sent on 10/10/2016
