    As a kid, I remember walking around Lake Geneva and seeing parties at the Riviera and thinking "man, that looks like fun!" - Fast forward 20 years later, we have our wedding there this Summer... and you know what? It was just as amazing as I thought it would be when I was 8... and then some! Chuck was really great to work, sometime hard to get a hold of on the first call - but always called me back the same day. A great thing about the Riviera is you can bring in all of your alcohol.. If you do decide to do this be sure to call Bruno's Liquor store in Lake Geneva. They will deliver everything for you (I will be writing a review for them next). Also, your bartenders don't need a license and you don't have to hire a service which is great. We had one of our groomsman's cousin's bartend with her friend and they were amazing. The price is super affordable for the location... and it's honestly unforgettable! We received so many compliments on our venue location. Such a classic building, in such a fun town!! Highly suggest!
