Toni was a breath of fresh air after I had been struggling with another venue. I found Riverbend after having a rough time talking with another vender. Toni immediately listened to me, answered all my questions, and took me on a tour of their breathtaking grounds. I called my fiance after the meeting and hearing how happy I sounded, he told me to book it without him seeing it first. Working with Toni and Terry was amazing. They were so helpful and in control. I had complete trust in their abilities. We were married in the chapel on a beautiful Saturday. Our friends and family have not stopped talking about how gorgeous the wedding was and how smooth the night was. Their venders, Champagne Wishes and Allegro, were professional and fun to work with. They too helped us plan our day to fit us best. This place helped us relax and enjoy our beautiful wedding.Sent on 06/22/2015

Toni literally saved my wedding. She was so unbelievable sweet and helped me in every way possible to save my special day. She was there for me for anything I needed since I had to replan my wedding in 1 1/2 months. This place was just meant to be for us. The venue is absolutely breathtaking, the food is wonderful and Toni plus her team just made my day absolutely perfect. I definitely recommend Riverbend Chapel, there is so much to offer to make your day perfect just like mine was.Sent on 10/07/2018
