"It was all a dream"
The River View location, staff, food and amenities are amazing. We had six months to plan our wedding reception and with Cori and team’s help, pulled off the most memorable event. Accommodating, friendly, genuine and ready to help make your event as perfect as it can be.
Extensive communication from The River View on all aspects of rental. I could ask anything and get an answer right away, almost always a Yes! Delicious food from onsite catering - Great Blue Heron, customized to our needs/preferences. A variety of options to choose from and French fries as a late-night snack was a hit! Fire pits, 1608 room (used for cocktail hour), onsite Bridal and Groom suites were all useful and beautiful inclusions in rental. Perfect!

beautiful location & amazing service and food!
This venue was absolutely... AMAZING! It's such a beautiful venue, inside and out! I just had my wedding on 10/19 and it was just so beautiful! This venue has a large bridal room and the groom can hangout at a little modern "club house" outside. Complete privacy and the venue is so spacious, with very modern designs.
The service of EVERYONE prior to the big day, on the day of the wedding was great too! From the first time we went to do a tour, to the walk through, setting up tables on the day of, wait staff, bartender... everyone was extremely nice, caring and very professional. No one complained about any service and the interactions all feel very genuine!
The caterer they partner with was also very VERY impressive! We did buffet style and all the food was very well prepared. Our guests could not stop talking about the salmon and the beef!! (Highly recommend it!!) Nothing was dry, over/under cooked. Our guests came happy, left happy and well fed!
We couldn't have asked for a more perfect location and service for our special day! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

We had a wonderful experience planning and hosting our wedding at the River View! It is a gorgeous and spacious venue! I loved that the venue is located within Occaquan Regional Park as I played many a soccer game on the fields there. Traveling to The River View was also easy for our guests and the venue has all the parking you could need to host your event.
Despite the pouring rain on our wedding day, we had a lovely reception! The view overlooking the water is spectacular and the venue offers plenty of places to capture your wedding photos (we will be returning for a photo shoot as we were unable to get outside due to the relentless rain). Cori and Carson were always available and made planning our event fun! Their professionalism is top notch and they were able to offer their knowledgable assistance in making our wedding one we will look back on fondly for all our years to come.
