    If you are looking for somewhere intimate, unique & reasonably priced, Riverside Receptions was my favorite venue in all of the Chicagoland area!

    When I was searching for wedding venues, I knew I wanted something intimate and unique that we could have the ceremony & reception. When I first saw Riverside, I instantly fell in love!! Additionally, I had found a venue that provides food, beverage, tables, linens, & chairs, which lowered our costs tremendously! Although this was an all inclusive wedding venue, Amy was extremely flexible and allowed us to schedule the day & set up the venue as we wanted. Neil, our venue coordinator was AMAZING on the day of. He basically was a day of coordinator -- he helped set up centerpieces, search for a sewing kit, and communicated with other vendors when necessary. All of the staff were friendly and helpful during the event; the bartenders were even coming up and asking if there was anything we needed! I couldn't recommend Riverside enough!!!

    I cannot think of enough kind words to say about this venue. We stumbled upon their website by chance. My moh, mom and I took one tour and that made up our minds. In fact, Riverside had all of the features that I wanted in a venue including atmosphere, menu selection and a wonderful staff. Our guests are still giving us complements on Riverside. I primarily worked with Frances and she is such a wonderful woman. The element of my wedding celebration that I am most proud of is Riverside Receptions. They really set the standard for weddings.
