    Don't look anywhere else!!!

    I rarely (if ever) write reviews, but was compelled to do so after having my wedding at Riverwood on 10/16/21. I toured many venues in Nashville for my wedding, with each place treating their venue as a place to "rent" that you couldn't truly put your personal stamp on, or interact well with their staff. Immediately I noticed a difference with Riverwood. They were genuinely excited to host our wedding and in helping make it our own.

    I know they host many weddings, but I never felt like another number. They remembered even the smallest details about my wedding that I had forgotten myself. With all of their amazing communication/responsiveness and organized meetings, they felt like family by the time of the wedding. They took care of us like family. Joyce and Morgan were always nearby to get us anything that we could possibly want on the day of. All other staff were equally amazing.

    My family and friends from all over the country were shocked how perfect each detail was, from the staff coordinating each wedding day task and decoration, to the delicious and warm food, to the perfectly mixed cocktails. They genuinely felt excited to be in such a stunning, historic space and cannot stop talking about it! Not only that, but my family was off the hook for set up and tear down-type tasks and could genuinely enjoy each moment of my wedding alongside me. These are memories I will always have, thanks to Riverwood! I can't wait to visit again and already miss working with them. The best day of my life hands down.

    Best Day Ever!!!!

    Our wedding was so much fun and was the most beautiful day of my life!!! We ended up having to go with the rain plan after a whole year of planning and dreaming of an outside garden wedding. Landry assured me that everything would still be amazing and beautiful and she did not lie!! The indoor ceremony turned out way better than i could have even imagined! I was amazed at how beautiful everything turned out even when it didn't go as planned. Landry was so helpful and answered all of my questions and helped with planning. Being in the busiest season of my life, the all-inclusive aspect of the venue was a life saver. I am truly so amazed by how perfect everything turned out and I could not recommend this venue enough!!!

    Our dream wedding!

    I cannot say enough wonderful things about Riverwood! Morgan was our day of coordinator and Joyce was our ceremony director. They went above and beyond to make sure everything ran as smoothly as possible and that we all had the best time! My family and friends couldn’t stop talking about how great they both were throughout the whole day. Having a rain plan is a huge plus, it ended up storming on our wedding weekend and we made the call to move our ceremony inside the parlors of the mansion. Morgan made sure that the ceremony space was gorgeous and we were so happy with our decision! Chef Eric’s food was incredible and we’ve gotten so many compliments on our dinner and cake. Cora and Morgan helped with our planning and I truly do not think I could have planned a wedding without them. They made everything so easy and were so quick to answer all of my questions (and reassure me that things would work out when I got nervous)! Overall, our day was perfect. Riverwood is the best venue and has the best team around!
