Best day ever.
This was the best day ever. Paul was spectacular. He went above and beyond to make this day perfect. He set everything up and broke everything down so my wedding and i party didn’t lift a finger. They are super flexible with pricing, dates, and times. He was amazing at going over all the details and made sure it was how I imagined. The food was absolutely amazing. All my guests were blown away. The whole wedding went smoothly. I wish I could rate a million stars.Sent on 04/12/2021

My daughter got married at The Venetian River Club on September 19, 2020. It is a difficut time to plan a wedding with the pandemic. Paul and Chris walked us through every step and were more then accomodating at all times. They went above and beyond what we expected. The food and the service were also outstanding. I would highly recommend the River Club.Sent on 10/01/2020

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!!!
Dining Room Supervisor
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.
The Venetian is a great choice for a wedding, and we always love events there. The entire Staff is great to work with, always professional and upbeat, and we know eveything will run professionally and smoothly!
Venetian Golf and River Club is the hidden gem of the Venice area. Alicia of the Venetian Golf and River Club is a true professional and very detail orientated person. Alicia goes to great lengths to make sure that brides happy with every stage of their planning. The food is excellent, the banquet rooms are elegant and beautiful overlooking the pristine golf course. The wedding photos are stunning at that venue!
This is a lovely location for weddings and special events. They have many indoor and outdoor options for a bridal party, including a bachelor party on the greens for the guys.
