    Outstanding!

    We cannot say enough wonderful things about choosing the River Club for our venue! Keely and her team worked so hard to make our reception perfect in every way! The venue itself is gorgeous with views of the St. John’s River and the interior is very elegant. Keely was so responsive to every question we had, usually responding within an hour. She offered great suggestions and perfectly executed our vision. Our guests raved about the venue and I would absolutely recommend it to any couples getting married!

    We had our rehearsal dinner at The River Club. We love the venue and didn't want our rehearsal to rival our wedding at the TPC the next day. We invited all guests who were invited to the wedding to our rehearsal. Everyone loved the venue. We had casual stations and the food was delicious. We had mac and cheese bar, flatbread station, salad bar, and a slider station with chips plus open bar. Everyone had a great time. The only downside was that our snapchat filter didnt work all the way on the top floor.. It did work on the ground floor. Not sure how to get it to work but FYI for all other wedding planners out there. Any event, wedding or otherwise would be great the River Club. Prepare for your guests to be wow-ed!

Alison Culpepper and her Creative Team at The River Club are an absolute delight to work with! She's organized, extremely friendly and her talent for organizing and executing weddings in all their eccentricities and uniqueness no matter how large or small, is unparalleled! Amazing vendor to vendor communication regarding Meagan & Rashad's wedding and was kind enough to even offer me the opportunity to scout the River Club venue the day prior to the wedding. Since Jacksonville is considered a destination from me, I truly appreciated her generosity in letting me peruse the property ahead of time. The River Club is an ABSOLUTELY STUNNING venue visually and the location is perfect right in the heart of Downtown Jacksonville. The staircase and chandelier alone are simply breathtaking! Thank you Allison and all of your wonderful staff at The River Club!
