The night of our lives and the party of the year

My wife and I chose the Riviera Waterfront Mansion for our wedding in August of 2023. We only looked at two venues but the Riviera stood out right away because of its beautiful chalet-like banquet hall with lots of outdoor lighting and exposed brick. The place was even more beautiful on our wedding day.

What stood out to me the most about the Riviera was the staff. Our assistants for the night, Megan and Maria, were absolutely fantastic. They always seemed to be around with a new drink, or to help with the brides dress or even to get some wine stains out of my shirt! They were fantastic and the rest of the staff from the people serving food to our bartenders were really attentive and fast with the requests - there were many nice touches including the staff setting up grab and go his/her cocktail drinks prior to the start of cocktail hour - which helped to keep the lines moving (this small touch is something i've never actually seen at other peoples weddings).

What surprised me most about the staff is how it rained all day, the night of our wedding yet somehow by 530pm (when the rain had passed), every chair for the ceremony and the outdoor cocktail hour setup seemed completely dry as if the rain never happened at all. The attention to details, the efficiency, and the level of service we received was far far beyond the expectations either of us had.

The Riviera recommended the band we used for the night and they were a huge hit as well. The acoustics are great and people danced all night.

Weddings are crazy expensive but as a whole, we felt that we got great value for the cost as the staffs service was truly grade-A. Nobody was hungry. Everybody was happy. The Riviera is a great place and we have zero regrets about our choice.

Dream Wedding

We had our wedding at the Riviera this August and it was an absolute dream. The staff went above and beyond to make sure our wedding was special. The maitre d made sure our guests were well taken care of. I would highly recommend this venue! The rustic decor is so beautiful as well as the water views. Also they only host one wedding at a time so it really allows you to enjoy the property!

Amazing experience

We had our wedding back in March 3/25/23 and it was everything we could have asked for! They were always willing to help and answer our questions and come the day of the wedding forget about it.. they were beyond amazing! I didn’t have to think about a single thing because it was all taken care of, through out the entire night. We highly recommend The Riviera!!
