We had the pleasure of hosting our daughters wedding on Tues. July 3, 2018 at the River House. There are not enough words, starting a year ago when we met with Kelly and signed our contract. The staff is experienced professionals and it was evident thru the entire process. Hattie, Kelly and Linda the evenings coordinator, calm, caring unassuming women who guided us thru and made every moment beyond perfect for my daughter and new husband, guests , bridal party etc. We were overwhelmed by the service and our special waitress Michele. Every guest complimented us on their level of service that evening. Hats off the the venue, vendor coordination and overall wonderful memories you provide to your brides and guests. We had a packed dance floor and it was a party worthy of Independence Day. You thought of everything all night , kept us on schedule and all we had to think about was having fun! Thank you all for the service and playing an integral role in the entire planning process, you are all very special people. Any bride is lucky to have her dream wedding here as YOU guys make it happen!Sent on 07/10/2018

To say that the day was perfect is an understatement. From the minute we decided to go with the Riverhouse, all the way until we left the venue on our wedding night, we had the best experience ever. The staff went above and beyond! I wrote sooo many emails with questions of all sizes, and every single one was answered so quickly, calming my nerves. Hattie, Sarah, and Kelley helped to make our wedding exactly what we had wanted.Sent on 04/04/2019
During our wedding day, Sarah was there to be sure everything ran smoothly. Everyone was so prepared! We also worked with Michele, who took such great care of my family and bridal party! From having a celebration cocktail ready, to bustling my dress, she was right there!
Every person I have talked to has gushed about how perfect the day was. The venue was beautiful and we lacked nothing! This was by far the best decision we made and we wish we could do it all again this weekend!!

5 star service
Everyone at the riverhouse went above and beyond for our wedding and every day prior. From accommodating my family to visit before booking, quick responses to emails and phone calls and even adding personal condolences when I lost my father. Their food is outstanding especially the mashed potatoes. There is something for everyone on the menu. And they really made sure I was taken care of the day of with my own attendant. The fact that they provided the bar, cock tail hour, and the cake in their price made planning much less stressful.Sent on 02/12/2019

We play at Riverhouse quite often, and their team is always organized and easy to work with. Live wedding music takes coordination between the venue coordinator and the music coordinator, and this always happens flawlessly at the Riverhouse. Thank you, and see you again soon!
