Beautiful venue!!

My husband and I just had our celebration of vows two days ago, after having to reschedule 6 months ago due to covid. Lee and Brandon were very helpful with rescheduling. Any time I had a question, or wanted to look at something at the venue, they were always in contact right away. We had both the ceremony and reception here. It worked out so well because our guests went downstairs in-between the ceremony and reception so that they could set up for the dinner. Plus it is in the heart of downtown - close to bars, the bowling alley, and the ice cream shop so guests and the wedding party, could walk to them like we did. The first time I walked into this building I fell in love. It is absolutely beautiful! The chandelier is stunning! There is so much history in the building, and it was a big conversation piece at our reception with family who had been there years ago. Everything went above and beyond what we had hoped for our special day, and I am so excited to get our pictures back! 100% recommend The Venue On Rivers Edge to anyone with an upcoming wedding or event!

Beautiful Wedding Venue, Above & Beyond Service!

My husband and I were thrilled with our experience with Lee & Brandon at River's Edge. Not only did our wedding go off without a hitch, they were a true pleasure to work with and get to know. They were extremely accommodating, going above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed. When I emailed the week of our wedding to see if I could stop in to drop off some decorations a few days early, they made themselves available. When the night of our rehearsal dinner our original plans fell through, they came to our rescue and opened their doors for us to have a last minute rehearsal & bring our food into their space. We were one of the many couples that had to reschedule during COVID19, and they graciously accommodated. When the date finally arrived, they supported all of our needs with spaced out tables, masks and lots of hand sanitizer! They answered my many emails, which increased as the date grew closer, and were always quick to reply. Not only was the experience wonderful, but the venue is beautifully renovated. We received so many compliments from our guests on how beautiful the space was and how smoothly everything ran. I am so happy we decided to have our wedding at The Venue at River's Edge. It was everything we hoped for and more.

Lee & Brandon- thanks again for everything, it was wonderful!
