River Creek Club made our wedding day so beautiful! The venue is amazing and Melene is on top of everything! From the minute we chose RCC, every single question I had, they were on top of it. Every request we had, they made it happen. RCC was more than flexible during COVID and did everything they could to make sure that our wedding was safe and that everyone felt comfortable. Not to mention the food and drinks were AMAZING!Sent on 11/12/2020
Only tip - do not use Edibles Incredible for cake from the preferred vendors list, the cake really put a damper on the night and the company has caused endless stress, which no bride needs!

Amazing staff, gorgeous views, elegant venue
Growing up in River Creek and seeing so many beautiful weddings, I honestly never thought I would get married here. After touring about a dozen different venues, we knew River Creek was the perfect place because of its amazing staff, gorgeous views, and elegant style. We met Rachael at their wedding open house and from day one she worked with us to ensure we had the wedding of our dreams. She responded to emails quickly, answered all our numerous questions, and helped to customize their wedding packages to suit our desires (e.g. multiple floor plans, larger dance floor, vegan/vegetarian meals). During the final walkthrough, we met Melene who would be there on our wedding day. The transition from Rachael to Melene was seamless and they both made sure to double check every timeline event, design plan, and decoration placement. We made a few last minute changes with which Melene was very accommodating. On our wedding day, Melene checked in with us frequently and the staff did a wonderful job setting up, serving everyone, and clearing down. We honestly felt pampered and could not have asked for a better team to have with us both on our wedding day and throughout the entire planning process.Sent on 06/23/2020

Making my vision a reality
I visited 12 venues that had water views before choosing River Creek Club. One of my colleagues who got married here a few years before recommended it and I'm so glad she did. Melene and Rachel were a dream to work with. They were patient, kind and professional when answering my questions from Day 1 to I Do Day. They were incredible in keeping the day rolling and making all my dreams come true throughout the evening.
The food was excellent! I kept getting compliments all night about how tender the beef was and coming from this crowd that is quite the statement. My dad was a meat cutter for 35 years so the steaks definitely had to impress, and they did! The bartenders were friendly and made our two signature cocktails perfectly time and time again. I even like how some of the staff got in on the fun by taking a few surprise photos in the DJ Chris Styles Events photobooth! I highly recommend this venue for your wedding or event. Great value!Sent on 09/03/2019

Gorgeous and Delicious!
We live in River Creek and knew the venue was beautiful. We didn't expect everything else to be just as perfect as the venue.Sent on 12/01/2018
The staff was simply amazing. Melene and Rachael’s preparation work, patience with a stress-y bride, and small details made a huge impression. The tireless service staff set up a beautiful room, preparing delicious food, ran a swift bar, serving with a smile, while swooping plates and glasses away in a blink. We received many compliments on the delicious food (crab cakes and filet) - noting some of the best ever served at a wedding. Also being able to move from a ceremony room directly into a lovely reception room with a long, cover patio overseeing the Potomac River - well, it was just perfect and beautiful (and kept the guests dry when the rain started in the evening).
We are truly grateful to have had such detailed professionals executing our wedding. We are certain that without the professional, personal service the staff offered, things would not have been as seamless. We are so happy to call River Creek our home. We are even more pleased that our friends and family were able see just how lucky we are to be part of RCC and were able to share in the celebration of one of the happiest days of our life. The special people that make up the RCC staff, are what makes RCC so special.

Best venue and staff EVER! ❤️
Our wedding planners listed River Creek Club on a venue visit after telling them the types of places we were looking for. It was the very last place we went on a cold November day, but I was immediately warmed up just by walking in the front door at RCC. We were greeted by Rachael who took us on a tour of the club house. As we walked though I started seeing my wedding come to life on the beautiful terrace looking over the Potomac and the large room with fireplaces on either end. Rachael was immensely flexible on everything we asked for. We were never met with a “No we can’t do that”.
As my wedding day got closer we met Melene (who rocks just as much as Rachael!). She helped us navigate surprise cousins having to bring their children and some last minutes changes due to a hurricane.
Overall the events team at RCC is hands down the best! If you have the chance to have your wedding here...DO IT!Sent on 10/29/2018

My wedding and reception were both at River Creek Club and it was phenomenal!! The staff, food and location was excellent from start to finish. Our wedding was a Kentucky Derby Sunday brunch theme with cocktail hour, and unlimited mimosa bar!!! The staff from Rachael Rutherford, Amanda Gervais & Melene Tolson, each one of these ladies made my experience with this organization unforgettable. They allowed us to bring our decorations a week before and visit as many times as we needed leading up to the wedding day to ensure our day was great. So accomodating and responsive from the initial inquiry, every email and phone call within 24 hours. Because of these ladies, our wedding day and experience on that day was THE BEST!!!! I have nothing but GREAT and AWESOME things to say. Every wish was granted, these ladies were professional, provided above and beyond service. Every staff member I encountered was courtesy and provided the same level of service as these ladies. WE LOVED everything about our day!!! Our guests gushed at how lovely the facility and grounds were, how much they enjoyed the food. You get to experience taking pictures in a golf cart on the grounds after your ceremony. If your looking for an all in one venue, this is it. The customer service was IMPECCABLE compared to others I've experienced!!! The value was worth the cost and the service we received!! We couldn't have chosen a better venue on our special day!!!!!Sent on 08/31/2018

We couldn't be happier that we chose River Creek as our venue. Not only was the view fantastic but we loved that we were the only couple getting married that day and had the place to ourselves (such a different feel than a wedding factory venue). Rachael was a FANTASTIC venue coordinator who made sure our wedding went off without a hitch. Not only did she make sure that everything was set up properly, when we finished walking up the aisle she had 2 glasses of champagne waiting for us. You're also able to drop things off the day before and pick things up the day after which is a huge lifesaver given how busy the wedding weekend is. We highly recommend River Creek - it was such a great decision.Sent on 11/18/2017

We had the most amazing experience at the River Creek Club. If you are looking for beauty, elegance and a well-run happy place, look no further! We had a fall wedding on the patio followed by a dinner reception with stations of amazing food. The staff there made it so easy for us. The best value, too, as we did not have our wedding on a Saturday.Sent on 10/10/2017

River Creek is a Club that sits on a golf course in a gated community with a scenic view of the Potomac River. It was the perfect setting for my daughters wedding. The staff is exceptional. They were the easiest to work with from the beginning to the special day! The club rents to the public and will do anything for you. They set up for the reception, they cleaned up and coordinated with all of the vendors. If you are looking for a place to have an event, I highly recommend River Creek and their staff! You will not be disappointed!Sent on 10/04/2017

Rachel was AWESOME! She helped us the whole time from start to finish and we absolutely loved working with her! The only issue was that because we had such beautiful weather, people were sitting in the outside area under the veranda and were all pretty loud during the ceremony. Other than that, Rachel really helped us out with everything and we could not have done it without her. A huge plus was that the food was AMAZING! We received so many compliments on how good the food was. Thanks River Creek!Sent on 07/15/2016

Do NOT hesitate to book your event at River Creek Club. Everything about them is wonderful. The food is literally the best wedding food that ANY of my guests have ever had, they served 160 people lightning fast, and best of all, the food was hot! Rachel (private events coordinator) is the most chill, personable, yet professional person I've had the pleasure of working with. She and everyone at RCC bent over backwards to make sure our day went smoothly. The veranda is a beautiful location for a ceremony, and the main ballroom easily accommodated our wedding of 160 with no problem at all. Highly recommended!Sent on 06/10/2016

I am so happy that we chose River Creek for our Rehearsal Dinner. Rachel and Aley couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. They made having a rehearsal dinner a breeze! The venue was beautiful with sweeping views of the Potomac River while the Potomac Room was the perfect size for our dinner for 50- not too big, not too small. Unlike other venues, River Creek didn't nickle and dime me to death. Want a projector? No problem, it's included. Need more room for the buffet? No problem, we'll set it up in the adjoining room. Need to set up early? No problem, come as soon as the previous event is over. Other venues would have charged extra, extra, extra for all of these incidentals. The staff was friendly, courteous, and helpful while the food was delicious. All at a great price! Thank you River Creek for making our Rehearsal Dinner a great success!Sent on 05/04/2016

Right after we got engaged, my now wife and I looked at nearly 50 venues online and in person. We initially took River Creek off of our list because the upfront cost was more expensive than other venues. But, then we quickly learned that all the “less expensive” venues nickel-and-dime things like chair rentals, centerpieces, etc. River Creek does it all! Aley, Rachel, Kenny and the whole event team took such good care of us. Anything we needed, they handled.Sent on 04/22/2016
Just before the wedding on 4-16-16, I forgot to drop off ribbon meant to be tied around our centerpieces. Rachel called asking if we still wanted it; I said no – but then she surprised us by going out and buying a perfectly matching ribbon and extra, small decorations for the centerpiece. And, when the bakery delivering the cake messed up – causing our top cake tier to tumble to the floor – Kenny and Rachel saved the day! The two-tier cake was so beautiful, it was impossible to tell that the whole thing collapsed minutes earlier.
The venue and service was so stellar that a few guests compared River Creek to a wedding at the Ritz! Thank you all so much for making our special day so stress-free, easy and memorable.

I cannot say enough great things about River Creek Club. We had our ceremony and reception for 178 people in March. It is such a beautiful location, once you enter the neighborhood, it's already magical. The staff at River Creek Club exceeded our expectations. Aley and Rachel were so helpful throughout the entire process. I emailed them often to ask questions and they were extremely accommodating. We didn't get ready at RCC but once we got there for pictures, the bridal suite was ready for us with water and straws, it was just such a nice touch. Any time I needed something throughout the night, I just asked any staff member and it was done in a matter of seconds. They also do their own pipe and drape in house so it was so nice to not have to worry about finding someone for that. It was just such a beautiful location, the price was right, and the staff was wonderful to work with. I wouldn't have picked any other location!!! Not to mention the food was delicious and plated beautifully!!! I cannot speak highly enough about everything, I didn't have to worry about a thing when I was getting ready at the hotel during the day and once I showed up to the venue, I was in awe of how beautiful it was. Thank you for a magical night RCC!!!!Sent on 03/14/2016

We were planning our daughter's Virginia wedding from Florida and we were so fortunate to work with Kelsey Baron who was always available to answer any questions we had and to help us with some ideas for the reception. She was totally professional and her expertise was invaluable. Everything was taken care of from the set up to the take down. The wait staff did a great job. The view was beautiful!Sent on 01/20/2016
Morgan · Married on 10/10/2015
Kelsey and her team at River Creek Club were wonderful. We were able to stop in multiple times to check in and see what was happening on site and how we could make our wedding as gorgeous as possible. Multiple e-mails were sent and responded to quickly, both from myself and my mother. The day of couldn't have been more perfect - although, there was a bit of a communication breakdown and the night person (who was not Kelsey) should have had a bit more finger on the pulse of the timeline. Beyond that, gorgeous day at a gorgeous venue with delicious food. Everybody noted that this was truly, no lie, one of the best they'd gone to. And our friends are not the type to hand out compliments willingly, so I'd say it was a win!Sent on 11/02/2015

I cannot say enough about the flawless service we received from River Creek for my daughter's wedding reception!! On a day that can be the most stressful and most memorable, Kelsey and the staff make the day as easy as possible. The venue is absolutely breathtaking! I received compliments all night about how wonderful the wedding reception was and how it was the best my guests had ever been to! The best food, the best service and the most beautiful venue one can have on their wedding day! I have also used River Creek for corporate events and they never disappoint. An exceptional value for any type of event you need to host! I constantly recommend River Creek to my friends and associates and look forward to using them again.Sent on 10/15/2015

I was just married this October at River creek and it was perfect! Kelsey was absolutely fantastic to work with! I would send Her multiples emails with many questions and she always replied quickly and was very kind! She always accommodated my needs and never said no to me! Truly a pleasure working with Her. The venue is beautiful, and the staff is great. Sergio helped us during the rehearsal dinner and wedding and I could only say good things about him as well. Our only inconvience was the rain. But Kelsey quickly went to our plan b and brought our outside ceremony inside and it was still perfect. I still have guest telling me dinner was delicious and the bar service was great. My husband and I would recommend River Creek 100%!Sent on 10/17/2015

Aley Montel did all she could to make Rachel's wedding perfect. She was wonderful! We are so grateful to her, the chef and all those at River Creek who helped make our daughter's wedding such a joyful time. Aley was a great help in all the things we needed to know and do to be ready for the big day. We even did our own flowers at the venue and she was wonderful with coordinating all that entailed. Also, she was so kind and calm! She would be right there with a cold drink of water for me each time I started feeling some stress. We are so grateful that our wedding was at beautiful River Creek!Sent on 08/13/2015

We got married during the day, and there was a flash flood warning the whole day. We had the ceremony outside on the veranda, and then had our reception inside. The veranda is very covered, so everyone stayed dry!Sent on 08/05/2015
Our ceremony started at 11:00, so Aley and Kelsey let my bridesmaids and I come at 6:00am to start getting ready. They would have even let us come earlier if we needed to!
Everything turned out more perfect than I could have ever imagined! Throughout the day, Kelsey, Aley, Kenny, and their team were managing every single thing and making sure our day was perfect. I am somewhat of a perfectionist and get stressed easily, but on my wedding day, I had absolutely no stress! They all went above and beyond, not just on the wedding day, but all the planning time leading up to it!
We had a 2-year engagement, so we visited A LOT of venues. We knew we had to have our wedding at River Creek. It was beautiful, inside and outside, the staff was always welcoming, my husband would be able to get a free round of golf plus invite a couple of friends, and they would help us stay within our tight budget. They did everything they could to accommodate us, but still give us the wedding that had everything that we wanted and more!
During my times of stress while planning my wedding, I would be able to meet with Aley or Kelsey, and they would talk me through every detail that was bouncing around in my head. They were always so calm, and never hesitated to make a request or idea work. All my stress would just go away each time I would talk to them. They were very flexible. They worked so closely with me, always considering my schedule, and made planning MUCH easier!
We could not have asked for a better wedding venue and have such wonderful event planners supporting and guiding us every step of the way. I would very highly recommend River Creek Club to anyone who is getting married!

All of the staff at River Creek Club were extremely helpful, professional and flexible as we planned the wedding. We couldnt have asked for better service. And we were able to use the facility the morning of the wedding, even though the wedding wasnt til 5:00 pm. The food was amazing and there was great attention given to every detail that had been discussed. While not inexpensive, we felt that the quality of food and the many additional services that RCC provided free of charge gave us great value for what we spent. And the result was a beautiful day we will remember for the rest of our lives.Sent on 10/14/2015
