    Beautiful venue

    We got married last weekend at River Stone Manor and we couldn't be more happy with the outcome of our wedding. Skip and Samantha at River Stone were EXCELLENT in terms of helping us organize the perfect reception. They were extremely responsive and professional. The outside area there is beautiful, right along the river. The inside banquet hall is also beautiful. The food was AMAZING! Our guests still continue to comment on their delicious food! We would definitely recommend this to others for any type of wedding, showers, parties, etc. We absolutely plan on holding future events here. Thank you again!! :)

    Beautiful venue

    Our wedding was so special! Skip is the ultimate professional and his venue is absolutely perfect for an outside wedding! I have had so many people tell me that our wedding was the best they have ever been to. We just went back and renewed our vows ten years later! They now are even serving dinner in the terrace where we had our reception. The grounds are still magnificent a decade later! We will be back to have the delicious food at the restaurant again! 💕
