The night of our lives and the party of the year
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.
