    The best of everything!

    Hard to know where to start with complimenting River Stone Manor... We heard good things and read positive reviews, but nothing compared to actually hosting our wedding there to know how true it all was! Rena Gallup, venue coordinator, worked with us throughout the year including visiting the venue, emails and answering countless questions. We had sit-down meetings with both her and Skip (owner), who truly complement each other well. They listened to our vision and made it happen both aesthetically and logistically. Almost every guest commented on the food quality... one guest who works in the restaurant business said it was the best cocktail hour food he'd ever had (book the Terrace Tent for this if you can!), and many loved the unique, seasonal side dishes that came alongside the perfectly cooked meat. The River Stone staff literally couldn't have done anything to make our day any more perfect, and we are forever grateful to them!

    Outstanding!

    Rena, Skip and team were wonderful to work with and made planning a wedding easy and organized. They left no detail unnoticed and were very attentive during the wedding reception. All of our guests raved about the food and service. Saying that it was the most fun they've had at a wedding. Thank you!
