    River Farm is beyond beautiful. If you want an outdoor wedding in an historic setting, this is the place for you. It's easy to work with the River Farm staff because River Farm really doesn't provide anything, besides a venue - you're on your own to book all other vendors. But River Farm didn't give us a hard time about any of the vendors we booked (most, but not all, of which were on River Farm's preferred vendors list). They are very strict about their no outdoor amplified sound policy, and they do charge for every extra hour ($500!). But we would never have picked anywhere else. The home and gardens are so romantic.

    River Farm is beautiful, but we had some communications issues with the staff. Several times, we were given erroneous information about a few issues. They were also slow to respond to email.

    The location is absolutely stunning. Guests raved about the site and took advantage of the surroundings. Unfortunately we had issues with the on-site volunteer staff and were less than pleased with the service received. It felt as though we were a burden, not a client. However, we have nothing but great things to say about the special event coordinator, Dan, who was especially helpful and pleasant. A mixed review in terms of service, but the location creates a magical event.
