About

Up to 275 guests

The Vineyard at Riverbend Chapel is a wedding and events venue located in Washington, Missouri. Boasting a variety of event spaces, it has numerous options for hosting wedding celebrations. Couples can enjoy their ceremony and reception at this riverside property, meaning that it’s not necessary to move the wedding party as the day progresses.

Facilities and Capacity

For the preparations, Victorian dressing rooms can be used at The Vineyard at Riverbend Chapel. Here, mirrors are available for making sure the little details are finalized before the big moment. The couple can join together with their invited guests in a number of settings for the ceremony. The chapel offers cathedral-style ceilings and enough space to accommodate 275 people. The space is defined by a color scheme of grays, creams, and mahogany wood, while large glass windows let in ample light. At the head of the room, the soon-to-be-newlyweds can state their vows and enjoy a romantic ceremony. Couples who would prefer to have an outdoor ceremony can make their way towards the garden. This area affords the wedding party with views of the Missouri River. A vine-covered arbor provides an elegant backdrop for the milestone moment as select wedding guests take their seats. After the couple have been officially pronounced, they can explore the grounds, partake in photo opportunities, and preserve some memories.

The banquet hall would be appropriate for hosting the reception. Round tables and Chiavari-style chairs may be arranged so that the couple’s nearest and dearest have somewhere comfortable to sit. Chandeliers cast sparkling light around the room, and a stone-effect arched bar invites guests to drift over to order some adult beverages.

Services Offered

For those seeking some professional guidance for the big occasion, The Vineyard at Riverbend Chapel offers an event planning service. These dedicated coordinators are more than willing to provide their expertise so that the day takes place with as few hiccups as possible. They can also provide decor, a dance floor, chairs, tables, linens, and more. Outside vendors are welcome on site, and the staff can point couples in the direction of trusted names for photographers, florists, DJs, and others. When the happy couple books their momentous occasion here, they also receive a wedding cake. What’s more, the special couple can reserve a comfortable honeymoon suite to retire to at the end of the day.

Cuisine

Cuisine can be served at the property so that guests’ palates are pleased and their appetites are satisfied. The catering available here includes hors d’oeuvres and plated meals. Additionally, servers are on-hand to dish up the meals for everybody to enjoy. To complement the culinary experience, bartenders can serve Champagne, beer, wine, and more.

    Book this venue!!

    I cannot recommend Riverbend enough! From the day we booked they always kept me up to date with what was going and always responded to my questions quickly. They recently changed management and have made so many amazing updates to the space! The outside wedding arch is beautiful and overlooks the Missouri River. The chapel inside is a beautiful alternative if the weather isn’t cooperating. The reception hall is huge with more than enough space to host your guests and get them all out on the dance floor! The food and DJ are included in the price and they recommend a bar package, so you don’t have to stress about finding multiple other vendors. You even get a day of coordinator! Amanda was amazing and made the day go off without a hitch. She really listened to our vision and made the day stress free. Our day was so beautiful and Riverbend helped make it the perfect day.

    My fiance and I attended a friend's wedding at The Vineyard at Riverbend Chapel; we were so captivated by the venue, amenities and services that we have set our date and being married and having our reception at the Vineyard! The beauty, service and value would be difficult to match elsewhere

    Hey Lisa! Thanks for sharing! We are getting close to 7/27! Thank you for choosing Riverbend and we are looking forward to your special day here with us!
    Best!

    Toni literally saved my wedding. She was so unbelievable sweet and helped me in every way possible to save my special day. She was there for me for anything I needed since I had to replan my wedding in 1 1/2 months. This place was just meant to be for us. The venue is absolutely breathtaking, the food is wonderful and Toni plus her team just made my day absolutely perfect. I definitely recommend Riverbend Chapel, there is so much to offer to make your day perfect just like mine was.

    Riverbend Chapel's reply:

    Thanks, Amy! We were happy to work with you to "re-plan" your wedding. You and Randy were a great couple and we enjoyed every minute of planning your day at Riverbend! So happy we could help! Thank you again for choosing Riverbend and we wish you both many years of "happily ever after!" Blessings! Toni and the Riverbend Staff

The Vineyard at Riverbend Chapel offers the perfect setting for weddings and receptions. The outdoor wedding location sits on the bluff of the Missouri River with a breathtaking scenic view of the surrounding area. No need to worry about a back up plan for your outdoor wedding due to inclement weather for there is a gorgeous and charming chapel that seats over 250 people. The reception hall is simply cozy and elegant. The staff will ensure that you have no worries on your special day! This is by far one of our favorite places for wedding photography and videography. It has been an absolute joy working with Toni Backs and the staff at The Vineyard at Riverbend Chapel. It is a must see or must visit location if you are planning a wedding.
