Cannot say enough kind things for Skip, Rena, Maureen, and the River Stone Manor They made our daughter Rebecca's wedding the most fabulous event imaginable. Their attention to detail and pride in the facility showed thru in every aspect from prior to the ceremony in the manor house, the ceremony, to cocktails in the tent thru to the reception in their gorgeous ballroom. The food was exceptional. All our guests were so very complimentary. Even though we had planned on an outdoor ceremony, they had a plan with options which were as beautiful. Skip and Rena took care of every little thing we asked and even the things we did not ask for were covered with an effortless grace. The wait staff and bartender's were also exceptional. We could not have asked for more or been more pleased. We are forever grateful to River Stone Manor for making Rebecca and Mike's day a most enchantingly unforgettable event.Sent on 08/21/2019
