About

On WeddingWire since 2008

Riverside Receptions and Conference Center is a wedding venue located in Geneva, Illinois. This unique property is nestled along the Fox River and provides spectacular views from its two-story event space. Characterized by a picturesque stone exterior, the historic building exudes a chic and rustic atmosphere that is ideal for celebrations of love. Couples who wed at this estate will enjoy friendly and helpful staff, all-inclusive packages, and exclusive access to the venue on their special day.

Facilities and Capacity
Riverside Receptions and Conference Center comes with a breathtaking outdoor ceremony site where soon-to-be-newlyweds can exchange their vows. This courtyard can hold up to 130 guests and features vintage lanterns, natural stone walls, brick walkways, and lush green vegetation. Two indoor conference centers are also beautifully outfitted for ceremonies, receptions, and cocktail hours. These include the lower-level Mill Room, which accommodates 110, and is furnished with a cozy pub-style bar, natural brick limestone walls, and three impressive fireplaces. On the upper level is the Bridgeview Room, an elegant event space that seats 130 and boasts floor-to-ceiling windows and panoramic views of the river. Couples can even rent the entire facility to make use of all three sites and throw a truly unforgettable party with all their loved ones. A get-ready suite is also available for the wedding party to prepare together and socialize ahead of the walk down the aisle.

Services Offered
Rentals of Riverside Receptions and Conference Center come with all-inclusive packages that include Chiavari chairs, ivory house linens, and floor-length tablecloths. The venue also offers a large variety of centerpieces such as seasonal fresh flowers, greenery, votives, white lanterns, crystals, and cylinder vases with floating candles. For reception meals, the extensive in-house catering features four hours of open bar, a champagne toast, the cake, and buffet, food station, and plated dinners. Nuptial brunch menus are also available, for those couples who would prefer a more casual affair. Overnight accommodations are situated at an adjacent sister location, The Harrington Inn and Spa. This hotel provides luxurious suites, a tranquil ambiance, and a full-service spa where the wedding party can pamper themselves with facials, massages, and more.

    Best Reception Ever!!

    Riverside Receptions and Amy Hardersen we鈥檙e absolutely fantastic to work with and Riverside is an incredible venue with beautiful views. Amy was so helpful and responsive to emails when asking questions and scheduling the food tastings and various meetings. The food here is so delicious and the wait staff is so professional and kind. I cannot thank Amy enough for her professionalism, responsiveness, kindness and positive attitude. Riverside made my reception everything I could have dreamed of. Now I just need my other friends to get married here so I can enjoy another evening there!! Thank you

    Beautiful space and amazing staff

    The coordinators were so helpful and they did so amazing making sure everything was set up how we wanted and on time. The only thing i heard from the guests was that their champagne glasses were cleared before the toasts, but that was probably just a miscommunication.

    Beautiful Venue, Great Food!

    Nothing but greatness from this venue! Amy & Tina were amazing to work with. Planning a wedding during covid was anything but easy, but they made it so much better! They were helpful, had responses immediately and overall just great to work with. Venue is breathtaking. We rented the whole building for our wedding (ceremony downstairs, reception upstairs) but also had the option to rent upstairs to get ready for the day, and it was so peaceful to have the river in the background while getting your hair and make up done . Food is AMAZING! We had nothing but compliments from everyone! Thank you Riverside!

    Riverside Receptions and Conference Center's reply:

    Hi Nikki
    Thank you so much for the kind words. We are so glad that we were able to help make your day a success and that everyone had such a nice time!
    Congratulations again!
    Amy
