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!Sent on 01/26/2019

Ceremony and reception
I had my wedding here in June and it was perfect! The food was fantastic. The view was beautiful. Lindsay and her staff took care of everything and had thought of every detail. Many of our guests had such a good time they went back to Riversbend for dinner later that week!Sent on 10/15/2018
