Incredible Venue

This place is a gem and so was working with Rebecca Dodson. I will say one thing after reading through other reviews that she is not a scammer. It seems like there is a crowd of folks posting negative reviews for a friend who was double booked. Double bookings happen and I am sure Rebecca tried her best to make things right. I鈥檇 recommend Riverbend Farms to anyone shopping for a wedding venue. There hasn鈥檛 been one wedding I鈥檝e worked where folks didn鈥檛 leave smiling and grateful for her services and experience.

Fantastic Venue

Riverbend Farms:
My wife Susan and I鈥檝e known Becca Dodson for 13 years and we can vouch for her integrity, honesty and commitment to giving brides and grooms the best wedding experience possible. She is thorough in all she does with her amazing energy. Not a single stone goes unturned: if she sees anything amiss, she immediately puts them right.
Every bride and groom matter to her. Every human has value. She moves heaven and earth in making her weddings a memorable day of joy for each and every client of hers. The majestic barn and picturesque pond reveal her excellent taste in style.
I highly recommend Riverbend Farms to anyone seeking one of the best wedding venues there are. You would be pleased beyond words.
