    Best venue!

    I threw more than a few temper tantrums towards my now husband insisting upon this venue and wow I’m so glad I did and only a little ashamed about it.
    This place is gorgeous at all times of the year. The building itself is such a nice modern vibe it’s a nice change from all the barns in this area! The windows are so gorgeous and the view of the river is perfect! I love all of our pics from this place!

    The Perfect Venue!

    The Riverview at Occoquan was my absolute number 1 choice for our wedding venue. The floor to ceiling windows and the open concept layout was the perfect space for what our wedding planner and I envisioned. The Coordinators (Cori, Fern, and Brooke) were always so responsive. When the government stay-at-home mandate was put in place and all large gatherings were postponed the staff immediately reached out to let us know what our options were and they were very flexible with cancellations and rescheduling. The catering services provided by Great Blue Heron was also very impressive. Our guests certainly enjoyed their meals. The ONLY downfall of the venue is the uneven/patchy grass in the outdoor ceremony space.

Cori Talbot

Hospitality & Event Sales Manager

Cori Talbot | CMP, PCA & IAVM member

As a graduate of the University of Florida, I have worked in both the public and private sectors of hospitality & events. From medieval fairs to art festivals, historic community events to wine festivals, and finally from large-scale conventions to weddings, I feel I have a one-of-a-kind view on event planning.

In my role as the Hospitality & Events Sales Manager for The River View with NOVA Parks, I work directly with clients from the touring phase, throughout planning, and during the day-of execution. I have been in this role for three years and I LOVE helping clients make their day go smoothly.

FUN FACTS

  • I am obsessed with my dogs (Cotton & Crash)
  • I'm an east-coast girl who has lived in New Hampshire, Florida, and now Virginia.
  • In my free time, you'll find me roller skating!
