Absolutely Stunning & Perfect!
My husband and I got married here on 09/06/2019. We had an AMAZING experience! The staff, particularly Cori and Liz, were extremely helpful, responsive, and worked with us throughout the whole process. They went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. The venue was STUNNING! We had our ceremony outside with a gorgeous view of the river. The reception area inside is extremely spacious and has plenty of natural lighting with all of the windows. Great Blue Heron is their caterer and the food was outstanding. We received so many compliments from our guests about the venue, staff, and food. I had the wedding of my dreams thanks to The River View at Occoquan! I couldn’t recommend this place enough. Thank you for everything!Sent on 10/12/2019

Stunning Venue & Professional Team
We took a chance on the River View and booked it when it was still a floor plan and muddy outside and we are so happy that we snagged a spot at the River View before it booked up quickly. We cannot say enough about this venue!!! The space is absolutely stunning, both inside and outside. We had our wedding there in early August 2019 and it was an absolute delight. Cori is super(!!!) professional and responsive to all email correspondence and was always available by phone as well. Liz of the GBHC (caterers) was also very responsive to our many changes/ updates to our requests. All of our guests raved about the gorgeous venue and it was an experience to remember. This is sure to be a hot spot for weddings and other celebrations for YEARS to come.Sent on 09/03/2019
