    Amazing Team

    I love the team at The River View! Cori is a delight, and even day of always available to answer questions and help make your dream a reality. You truly get there and are able just focus on the day and leave everything else to them. They even have you go over a rainy day plan 2 months in advance! I never once worried I wouldn't be taken care of. I strongly recommend people consider using this venue for whatever event they're planning.

    This venue has it all! We would highly recommend it

    We can't say enough about how much we loved the River View. From our very first tour (while it was still under construction) to communication after the event, Cori and Kaila were incredibly competent and easy to work with. We were easily able to coordinate in person, through emails, and through phone calls. No matter what the detail was (like scheduling walk through with four different people's schedules in mind, coordinating with our event designers, providing platters to our baker, sending me photos of what pre-plated salads would look like because I couldn't decide, working on lighting the day of, answering endless questions, etc.) Cori and Kaila were professional and always knew what to do. We were so grateful for their help in coordinating with catering too because then the whole even went seamlessly. They made us feel special, excited, and relaxed through out the whole process and that is truly a blessing while wedding planning. If you are thinking about having your wedding here, do it! You will not regret it!
