Our wedding-coordinator, Kayla, was simply amazing. She was so attentive to detail and very responsive. She is so personable and friendly, and made it a true pleasure and joy to plan our wedding details with her. She made it such a seamless and smooth process, and everything happened so perfectly the day of our reception thanks to Kayla and the bridal team. Our two bridal attendants were very sweet and friendly, and always made sure that we had a drink in our hands and ate every food item that was served.
The food was top notch and simply exceptional. We loved how our bridal attendants and Kayla stopped us at every point in the night when a new meal was served to ensure that we sat down and ate. If it weren't for them, we wouldn't have eaten the entire evening as we were having so much fun. Our guests raved, and continue to rave, about how exceptional the food was.
Our review could go on and on describing simply how amazing, wonderful and incredible the entire team is at Riverview, and the top notch venue for a dream of a wedding. We couldn't be happier with our choice. Every detail and aspect that Riverview had to offer exceeded our expectations, which resulted in the wedding of our dreams and a perfect wedding day. We keep reliving the evening in our minds and are forever grateful for Riverview. Thank you, Riverview, Maureen and Kayla for making our wedding day truly amazing, special and unforgettable. We highly recommend The Riverview for your wedding venue needs!

Elegance all the way around, from the outside to the marble ballroom. Fun and friendly staff and the food is perfect. We recommend checking out The Riverview.
Maureen and her team are always a pleasure to work with. They are on-point and strive to make every event run as smoothly as possible. The view is beautiful, the rooms gorgeous, and the food first class. We enjoy working there as often as possible.
The excellent staff at the Riverview has always been professional with attention to detail, but they are also considerate and helpful. Because of this my experience as a photographer at this beautiful venue has always been easy and smooth. My brides and grooms have loved their experience from the planning right through the wedding day. There is beautiful light in and outside of the building and many places to capture great photographs. I highly recommend this venue for your wedding day plans.
