Super easy!

We were married at Riverdale Manor this past Fall and it was stunningly beautiful. Based on all of the reviews, we expected the food and service was incredible. But what was most surprising was how easy the planning process was. We planned our wedding long distance and Maureen who was our coordinator was incredibly knowledgeable and also really responsive to all of our emails which made the process super easy. We worked with a lot of their recommended vendors and since they were very familiar with Riverdale Manor they needed little to no direction from us.

The PERFECT Wedding Venue

My husband and I got married at Riverdale at the very end of December 2023. It was the perfect venue for our holiday wedding. We appreciated the staff's communication, attention to detail, and overall kindness to our guests. My husband and I felt at ease throughout the entire planning process; having Thyme and Seasons catering at the venue was so helpful. The food was beyond delicious and everyone left well-fed! Our cake, also from Thyme and Seasons, was so beautiful and tasty. We cannot recommend Riverdale Manor enough! We are so grateful to have found such an amazing venue that made our wedding so magical!

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.
