Our experience with Riverdale Manor was truly outstanding from start to finish. Katie was our coordinator, and she was absolutely amazing, and so responsive and helpful during the planning process. Everything was perfect - from the food, to the beautiful venue, to the staff, we seriously couldn't be happier with the way everything turned out. Stop searching now and choose Riverdale Manor for your special day, you won't regret it!!

My wife and I just got married here in October 2017 and this place was PERFECT! We planned our wedding from Seattle, WA and our coordinator, Monica, was the perfect combination of professional and fun for helping us every step of the way. She has no problems planning most of the wedding over email, and provided us will all of the tools and info so that is was easy to do so. She was open to every idea we had, and provided spot-on suggestions for the pieces we were unsure about. As for the venue, the grounds are beautiful, the staff is friendly and the food is fantastic! We couldn't have asked for a more perfect day :)
