    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.

    Beautiful and perfect

    We had our wedding at The River View on June 14th. It was beyond amazing! The venue is absolutely gorgeous and the coordinators are awesome! During the whole wedding process, Cori was in constant contact with me, answering all of my many questions. The day went off without a hitch and all of the guests loved the venue too! I would highly recommend this venue
