I recently got married at Riverdale Manor on July 3rd, 2017 and our day couldn’t have been more perfect. We worked with Maureen Raezer who made the planning process easy, stress-free, and fun! I would highly recommend Riverdale Manor to anyone who is looking for a venue that will take care of you and make sure everything is planned out. As a bride, it was amazing to not worry about the little details – the staff at Riverdale took care of setting everything up and making sure the day ran smoothly. Our guests who attended the wedding could not stop complimenting us on the venue we selected. The food was also a major hit! Guests loved the quality of the food and appreciated that the food was delivered to each table at the same time, no tables were left waiting (even if they were sitting at a higher table number). On top of everything else, Riverdale also provides multiple locations to get married (indoors and outdoors). Luckily we had amazing weather and we were able to get married outside by the river, but if there would have been rain… their indoor location at the gazebo is just as beautiful! Thank you Riverdale Manor for providing my husband and I with a day that we will never forget!

Perfect Wedding Venue!!!
The first wedding decision we made a year and a half ago was choosing our venue, Riverdale Manor. We worked with Monica from the moment I inquired about the venue 2 years ago, to our wedding day this past Saturday. Monica was an abolute pleasure to work with!! she was always patient with my many emails with questions and my detailed outlines/timelines. She knew our vision and was able to set-up the perfect Ceremony & Reception spaces we oculd have ever dreamed of. Our wedding was perfect from start to finsih. The venue alone is simply stunning (they decorate with greenery for the Holidays!) and their staff is FANTASTIC! We were so lucky to work with a venue and staff that did SO much for us, and all of their couples. They get the linens, handle all the food, set-up all your supplies day of, have gorgeous bridal suites, pack everything up at the end of the night, and are there to make sure the day is as perfect as it can be. I have never worked with a site that was so organized until working with Riverdale. Monica is the greatest ever and working with her and her assistant Julie was so lovely. They never made me feel rushed or like a burden. They were there to make sure everything flowed nicely. They also pack all your supplies up at the end of the night AND give you leftovers!! This was so so exciting for me and my husband because we hardly had a moment to eat, so having leftovers, our cake, and desserts, was so special for us. If you are thinking about Riverdale, I suggest choosing them! They're the best in the business!

Beautiful venue, helpful staff
We had a wonderful experience with Riverdale Manor and with our coordinator, Melanie. She took care of the numerous big and small details throughout the wedding planning process to ensure that our wedding was a beautiful, enjoyable night for us and our guests. We couldn't believe that everything went so perfectly!
You get a lot for your money at Riverdale Manor, which is not something I can say of the other venues we toured in the Lancaster and Philadelphia areas. While planning, I was all about simplicity, and having catering in-house and a wedding coordinator included in the package made planning much easier on us. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone looking for a beautiful, reasonably priced wedding location with great, professional service.
Such an elegant and stylish venue! Every aspect lends to a perfect experience. The staff are impeccably focused on providing the best service. Everywhere your guests look, they will be treated with beauty! If you are looking for a venue that will turn your big day into an AMAZING experience, Riverdale is the one!
We work at Riverdale Manor more than any other single location. They are consistently on schedule, professional, and great to work with. Working there as much as 30 times a year or more, not only am I not sick of their food, it continues to be delicious time after time. I look forward to each time I am there because I know how good it is going to be.
Riverdale Manor is a beautiful and pleasant place in which to photograph and enjoy a family celebration!
