    Beautifully decorated with amazing service and food!

    We cannot say enough wonderful things about the beauty, setup, service, flexibility, food quality and willingness to accommodate literally ANYTHING that we wanted. Anthony and Megan took the reigns and created the most stunning and beautifully put-together reception of our dreams. The fenced-in outdoor grass area was perfect for the kids to romp around, the gorgeous entrance vestibule, cozy cocktail hour room/bar, and separate cake and dessert room are excellent touches. The servers were super attentive to us and ALL of the guests and went above and beyond to ensure everyone had a drink in their hand or food on their plates. We cannot stop talking about how perfect it was. Guests were thrilled and all felt the same way. I would most definitely recommend this venue to any and all considering it for their wedding reception. We had about 50 adults and 15 children and it was a wonderful space for us with plenty of extra room. Not too large and empty, but just right! Also, there are great outdoor spots for photos including a huge Oak tree with Spanish moss by a lake to take advantage of. Top of the line! Do it!

    Best Venue!

    Paul was just amazing from beginning, middle, and end! This venue is so beautiful and it’s great that it can all be in one place. We had the ceremony outside and they have a large cocktail room for our guests of 100. The reception was inside and they transformed it into what I imagined, beautiful! The price was just right for us and I was allowed to use any of the decorations they had which was an added bonus! They were very quick and professional when I had questions for them. I was able to use the whole club house from early morning to get our wedding party ready and they made sure we were well taken care of. This venue was the absolute best!

I am from a very large family. My mother had ten children and as the second oldest, i always helped cook for the family. This is where my passion for food started. A husband of 22 years and a father of three, my oldest is serving our country in the Navy. I pride myself with customer satisfaction.

The dedication to weddings that Paul Grothouse and I have is remarkable. Our vow is to ensure our brides will receive the best service our club has to offer. From your very first visit to our club, you will notice our passion!!!

Hallå! ¡Hola! I was born and raised in Sweden, then was given the career oppurtunity to spend over 15 years exploring different parts of the Caribbean Islands. Working and living in the islands was an amazing adventure and being trilingual helped me understand and connect with many unique cultures. I have worked in hospitality for over a decade and now at the Venetian River Club since 2018 when my wife and I moved to Florida. With a "treat others the way you would like to be treated" attitude, I strive to make you feel as amazing on your wedding day as my wife and I did on ours. Together with my managers and staff, we will work with you to help plan out all the details so that we can make your vision into a reality and an unforgettable event experience.
