    Amazing, thank you for everything, the best. Book now!

    ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!
    Choosing Riverside Hotel was THE BEST decision ever!
    When we originally booked (Before COVID) we were working with Cathy.
    During the COVID chaos Loma took over and was a true blessing from the sky!
    She went above and beyond, they worked so closely with us and were so kind and accommodating!
    We had to switch our buffet station to a plated meal and let me tell you the food was AMAZING!
    The food tasting was wonderful, Loma had set up an entire private room for us all decorated.
    She was so responsive and professional. Despite our guest count changing and us loosing guests due to COVID she was so quick to bounce back and forth and help us with everything. She would answer my calls, emails, texts even super late at night.
    It stormed the day of our wedding and they had to move our entire cocktail hour inside, they did such an amazing job I had no idea everuthing they had to do and it was just so beautifully decorated that guests had no idea it was a last minute change.
    Everyone was so sweet and so helpful.
    We had a BLAST, Loma took care of everything and she even wrote us a card that she left in our suite with champagne, strawberry covered chocolate and roses.
    Chef Sabrina made us an absolutely GORGEOUS and DELICIOUS CAKE and the Chef was just amazing, everyone enjoyed all the food.
    The location is AMAZING, and the picture spots inside and around the hotel are stunning.
    I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS VENUE!
    Thank you to all the staff, thank you so Chef Sabrina and thank you to Loma for EVERYTHING.
