    Beautiful Venue, Amazing Staff!

    We loved Riviera Mansion when we toured it because it has a "home" vibe - dining room, living room, etc. We could see our guests, old and young, different personalities, all enjoying the spaces. We had no idea how right we were! The venue is perfect for that "family" vibe and created the perfect environment for our wedding. Not to mention, it is a gorgeous property. On top of it all, the staff was a delight to work with. Everything was executed flawlessly. Which allowed us to just relax and enjoy the day!

    Perfect All-Inclusive Wedding Venue!

    The Riviera Mansion is the perfect wedding venue in the most romantic location. My husband and I got married here on 3/23/2019 and were blown away by our experience from start to end. The Mansion itself is gorgeous and it was love at first sight when we visited it for the first time.

    Breanna, the venue coordinator was top notch when it came to helping us plan our wedding. She was so helpful, informative and attentive to our needs during every step of the process, and worked hand in hand with our wedding coordinator to ensure that everything turned out perfect.

    The venue has everything you can think of - a gorgeous bridal suite upstairs and separate groom's suite downstairs. It has a wrap around courtyard/patio, and the most beautiful outdoor wedding ceremony space with a beautiful tree casting over the area. The venue provides all food and drinks - which were AMAZING.The service from the staff was phenomenol - they were on top of every detail and timing.

    Our guests could not stop raving about the Riviera Mansion, and said that everything about it was perfect. I am beyond happy that we chose this venue for our wedding, and would choose it over and over again if I had to!

    Thank you to the wonderful staff for making our special day perfect!

    Perfect Wedding Venue

    We are so thrilled that we found this gem of a location! After looking at numerous venues throughout southern California, this was the only place that ticked all of the boxes. It was everything we wanted and more. Both of us really liked the beauty and the versatility of the Riviera Mansion, allowing us to plan an outdoor ceremony and dinner, with the option of moving things inside at the last minute if the weather did not cooperate. As it turned out, we had a perfect day for our ceremony outside on the lawn under an enormous and incredibly beautiful old tree. Dinner on the patio under the twinkling lights was magical. Having exclusive use of the entire facility and being able to have music until 11:30pm were additional benefits we did not find in other places nearby. And there were so many different rooms that we could keep the guests entertained from ceremony to cocktail hour to dinner to dessert to dancing, each in different sections of the mansion and grounds.
    Two other real standouts we cannot fail to mention were the food itself and the staff of the mansion. So many guests raved about the food! Chef Jamie West was spot-on and the dinner exceeded everyone's expectation for a wedding meal, being more like dinner at a fine restaurant with exceptional attention to each course and each serving. A few of the guests even told us it was the best steak they ever had (we had the filet with port mushroom sauce). In addition, we also cannot say enough about the staff at the mansion, headed by event coordinator Breanna O'Toole. Breanna was simply the best, answering all of our questions in a timely manner and guiding us through the booking and planning process; and the entire staff was very professional, accommodating and helpful. We cannot recommend this place enough!

The Rivera Mansion creates an old Spanish vibe from days of old with a spectacular garden intimacy that bridal couples crave. The staff is unparalleled and working with Breanna and Chef Jamie West is a true pleasure. This is a place where your guests will feel at home the minute they walk through the door and your needs for the day are met with the utmost professionalism and attention. I personally love working events at the Riviera Mansion and I'm always excited to work with clients who have chosen this amazing venue!
