Perfect Rehearsal and Wedding Drinks

We had a small rehearsal dinner, followed by a big welcome party on the river for over 200 guests from 20 different states. This is a perfect location for people that have never been to Chicago and those that are locals, because the view of the river and the buildings is absolutely stunning. They have the biggest covered outdoor patio in the city, and it was a perfect setting for our guests. From the dinner food to the appetizers and cocktails, every single detail was excellent. We couldn't believe how kind the staff was, from the person that we first interacted with to every bartender. They really cared about making this experience enjoyable and unique for our guests, and wow, they delivered! We are so thankful for what your team put together for us. Thank you, Rivers!

Location, food, service = perfect

Absolutely stunning venue. Many guests commented how expensive our wedding must have been at this location... but it actually cost less than 1/3 of the price they guessed! That's how amazing everything was. Our whole experience leading up to the wedding with Dan was fantastic. Dan made sure we had everything we needed for a successful rehearsal dinner, wedding ceremony, and reception. He had recommended vendors for DJ, production, and rentals which made our day of event schedule so much easier because many vendors had worked with Rivers in the past. Dan was also there day of the event and was a joy to work with. The true hero of the day was the manager Kelley who made sure everything was taken care of for the bride and groom and our wedding party. The weather was perfect for a late-May wedding and the river setting was stunning, especially at sunset. Not to mention the food, which was OUTSTANDING... including appetizers, salad, and dinner. I am still overwhelmed with how perfect everything was. The food, the service, the location, the staff. Thank you, Rivers!

We could not have picked a better place for a Chicago city wedding. All the staff at Rivers helped make the day absolutely perfect. The view of the city was beautiful, food was amazing, and staff were well organized. We had so many compliments from guests on the venue. I would definitely recommend Rivers to anyone planning a city wedding,
