Our experience working with the Riverside wedding team was amazing. From the second we contacted the farm to plan the wedding we received exceptional service. Not only did Riverside help us select the vendors but they also played a critical role in managing the other vendors throughout the wedding planning process - which was tremendously helpful since we planned the wedding from 3000 miles away. We planned all events at Riverside from the rehearsal dinner, wedding and Sunday brunch and all were exceptionally well managed. The Riverside team helped us put together the perfect wedding day. I would recommend the venue and the team without exception. I promise you will not be disappointed.

Can't speak highly enough of Riverside Farm and Alli Kozick! We just got married there and I wanted to write a review as soon as I could because I was so appreciative of all they did to make our wedding weekend the best it could be. The venue is insanely beautiful - we thought it was amazing when we first visited, but once we saw it filled with our family and friends it really blew us away. Many, many guests said it was best wedding (other than their own, if they were married) that they've every been to.
Scenery/Venue - perfect. it's so insanely beautiful, photos don't capture it.
Food - You don't get an option to choose caterers, but Vermont Farms Catering is AMAZING and many people said it was the best wedding food they ever had.
Housing - the onsite rooms are perfect for friends. we loved the bridal/grooms cottages to get ready and our friends who stayed in the stables/caretakers cottage loved it. Amee Farm was perfect for my large family and our friends loved Trailside Inn.
Town - Pittsfield is adorable! Rural, but has everything you'd need (awesome food at general store, amazing hiking, larger scale amenities in Killington)
On-site Coordinator - ALLI IS THE BEST!! She was so easy to work with and kept us on track - she was patient and kind, but also so organized and clear. It was so nice to have her to ask questions and get her expertise since she's seen far more weddings that we have. Alli told us we wouldn't need a wedding planner and she was 100% correct - the weekend went off seamlessly! Alli is the best!
If you're contemplating getting married at Riverside - DO IT!! You will not regret it and it will be amazing. I love that not only do my husband and I have perfect memories, but our friends and family all do too. It was so nice to see them happy and it really made the weekend wonderful for us. I wouldn't change a single thing!

Amazing wedding venue!! Amazing event coordinator there -- Alli K! Beautiful facilities and beautiful location!! If you're even thinking about a Vermont wedding you must look at Riverside Farms. Every single detail of my daughter's wedding this weekend was planned thoroughly and each staff person was incredibly supportive and polite and helpful. Honestly, we cannot say enough about Riverside Farm and Amee Farm Lodge. Our whole family stayed at Amee Farm Lodge, the Inn near the wedding venue, and that was incredible too! Fabulous breakfast, super accommodating innkeeper, Ray, and a big living room with great views where we hung out. The Riverside Farms venue without a doubt made our wedding there one of the happiest days of our lives, and of our daughter's life. No detail was too small to ask about, no wish was left unbidden! Just as we were waiting to walk onto the gorgeous lawn for the ceremony, the fantastic event manager, Alli K. ran off to get some mints -- all because I casually said, "Do you have any mints?" You MUST look at Riverside Farms for your wedding. They made the whole day a beautiful and flawless memory!
Both Riverside Farm and Amee Barn are the perfect places to hold your wedding or special event. I have enjoyed working with Sophie and the amazing staff at these two beautiful and magical venues. You can have the best in Rustic/Chic and decorate to fit your vision for your perfect day. I can't wait to return to photograph and film my next event!
People occasionally ask us what our favorite venues are to play outside of New York City. Riverside Farm is always the first name on our list, as we've never had anything less than a fantastic experience playing there, working with their great team and seeing our happy clients at the end of the night, who are always thrilled that they chose to head up to Pittsfield, VT. One of the most beautiful settings, incredible food, a flexible and creative staff and a great sounding set of rooms on their property make Riverside pretty unbeatable. Well worth a look!
Love working at Riverside and Amee Farm, they are magical!
