    An absolutely perfect Day!! Can we do it again?!

    Our wedding was truly the most perfect day and we owe it all to the staff at The Riverhouse at Goodspeed Station! The Riverhouse is a beautiful venue and provides many great locations for photos! Aside from how beautiful the venue is the staff is truly amazing! When I met Hattie and Kelley they both are so nice and welcoming that I felt like I was at home. I knew that they would be there to help us the whole way and they definitely were as we’ve been planning over the past two years! I had so many questions that they promptly answered. They gave helpful and honest feedback which I truly appreciated! My dream was to have a ceremony by the water and they made that come true by having it down by the river. It was absolutely beautiful and perfect! We can't say thank you enough for making our dream come true! We are still receiving compliments as to how great the food was, how beautiful the venue was and how much fun everyone had! For our Hors D'oeuvres we had Arancini, Korean Short Rib Dumpling, Pineapple Glazed Chicken, Mac and Cheese with Lobster, Crispy Quinoa Slider, Blackened Shrimp and Penne Bolognese pasta during cocktail hour. All were amazing! Our meal options were Grilled Filet Mignon, Cajun Seared Swordfish and Stuffed Breast of Chicken. Which everyone loved their meals! We have had multiple people say it was the best meal they've ever had at a wedding they've attended!! Hearing all these compliments meant so much to us! We also had the pleasure of working with Julie and Linda. We met them a couple days before the wedding and went over our decorations and vision for the day of the wedding. They truly made our vision come to life. It was more beautiful than we could have ever expected!! They made the day so perfect! We can never say thank you enough for all of their hard work setting up all of our decorations and making the day run so smooth!! You always hear that something will go wrong at a wedding. I can honestly say there is nothing we know of that went wrong! Our day ran so perfect and smooth! Thank you ladies!! We had Michelle for our Bridal Attendant and she is just absolutely amazing at what she does! She is exactly what every bride needs on their wedding day! She is so kind and helpful! She was one step ahead of us the whole day and had anything we needed right on her! She is just amazing!!! Our wedding was so perfect it could not have been any better! We are still on cloud nine and wanting to do it all over again! Thank you everyone again!!!

    Hands down the best wedding venue

    The Riverhouse was one of the BEST decisions we made hands down. They always clearly communicated deadlines and what was needed of us in order to make our day run smooth. They were accommodating and super flexible to schedule detail meetings. Day of they were UNREAL. There was an emergency the morning of our wedding and we were unable to get ready in our offsite location. Our day of coordinator Linda got ready early and opened for us a few hours early so that we were able to finish prepping for the day. It was an honest to god life saver and put me at ease when everything was going wrong. Throughout the day the entire staff was accommodating and helpful - even helping my 9 month pregnant sister bustle my dress and take twigs out of it. We went back a couple weeks later for their first “A Night to Remember” and the entire staff remembered us and was so kind.
