It just does not get better than Skip Sgarlata & the team at Riverstone manor . Skip gave my husband and I the best wedding gift of all .... a flawless, fairytale wedding full of laughter, perfect and eloquent execution, and phenomenal food.
I cannot begin to express my love for the venue and team. After setting one foot on Skip's lawn, I knew this is where I wanted to start our "happily ever after". Skip made every single one of our dreams come true. The entire team was so attentive, and so in-tune to our guests catering to their every need. More importantly we trusted Skip and the team ... I had all the confidence in the world they would execute on every element of our wedding. Turns out, they went above and beyond!
The grounds were beautifully manicured, and all guests were in awe of their surroundings ... a true gem tucked away in quiet Glenville, NY. Food was such an important element of our wedding, and Skip and his chefs blew it out of the water! The cocktail hour was incredible, and not a single person was left hungry. They struggled to find room in their stomachs for dinner ... but once the entrees came out, they found a way!
We have now been married 14 days and we are still receiving rave reviews about Skip, his team and the venue.... our guests have never seen such a gorgeous location, or received service at a wedding to that caliber. Many have never ever had a meat dish that delicious!
Skip, Patty and team - we love you and thank you for providing us the most magical day we could have dreamed of. xoxo - Allie & Steve Wik

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!Sent on 11/16/2018

Absolutely perfect wedding. From the bridal party getting ready in the manor house, to the ceremony by the water, on to the cocktail hour in the tent and finishing with the reception in the main dining hall. Beautiful - they made everything just perfect - everyone should be lucky enough to have this for their daughter.
