    Hidden Gem Venue of the Northshore

    My fiance and I will be getting married at Riversbend in September. We have been working closely with Lindsay to organize our special day. She has been so amazing!! Flexible, and full of inspiring ideas! Riversbend is the perfect location for any couple seeking to find a hidden gem in the Northshore for ceremony and reception, even a rehearsal dinner! It has an unbeatable backdrop of the Essex River, which is beautiful any time of year. The rustic, simple indoors of the venue in unbeatable too! We are so excited for this Fall!

    Picturesque on the River

    Riversbend was everything we had hoped it would be when we first visited on a cold and raw day in January. The ceremony on the knoll and cocktail hour on the deck overlooking the river on a perfect September day was truly amazing. All of our months of planning were managed to perfection by Lindsay and her staff. She worked with all our concepts and ideas and made them happen. If you are looking for a place that is quaint and by the water this is the place for you.
