A Dream Come True
Where to even begin! I’ve waited to write this because I have no idea where to start. Having our wedding at Rivercrest was the best decision of the wedding planning process we made. Our day was magical from start to finish and it’s the entire teams extensive attention to detail that ensured this.
The team: Wedding Planner Michele was a dream to work with, and from start to finish did everything she could to make our vision and dream come to life. “No”was a word we didn’t hear when it came to planning our big day there. She was helpful and kind and supportive and truly the best resource for planning your wedding.
Kanari was our day of wedding planner and coordinator and ensured our extensive decor was set up perfectly! We had so much decor with our winter wonderland wedding theme and Michele and Kanari went through each thing we brought and what it’s purpose was so day of everything came together exactly how I dreamed and more. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing your vision and theme come to life and they both ensured that happened!
The cocktail hour we had in our guests words was legendary! The food from start to finish was out of this world and we couldn’t have been happier with everything. The serving staff the entire night really looked out for us and made us and my family feel so special and taken care of they anticipated all of our needs before we realized what we needed! Our server Patti made sure we were well fed all night and we never had an empty drink.
I truly could go on forever but when planning your wedding you need a village to pull it off and ensure it goes to plan and Rivercrest truly is the village you want around you.
We’re so thankful to them for everything they did to make our wedding amazing and will be dreaming of it for the rest of our lives!

The wedding we dreamed of
What a venue! From the elegant ceremony space, to the gorgeous picture views, to the comfortable cocktail area, to the perfect ballroom, Rivercrest made the most special day of our lives fulfill all of our visions of what our wedding could be.Sent on 09/10/2020
We planned the big day with the help of Michele, who made the process so much easier than anticipated. During each planning meeting, whether it was a food tasting or my wife, Courtney, and I practicing our first dance on the ballroom floor a few days before the wedding, Michele ensured our happiness with each decision, made sure all of our bases were covered, and had fun with us along the way.
Our coordinator the night of the wedding was Hekmet, and he was one of the most laid back yet competent event organizers I have seen. We had several moments where our planned timings were off, and Hekmet adjusted seamlessly, all while checking in with us in a completely relaxed manner. To be able to handle everything while not being overbearing to my wife and I during the evening could not have been an easy task.
If you take all of this and add terrific food and a wonderful vendor recommendation list, I could not think of a better place to celebrate a marriage. For any looking for a venue, Rivercrest should be at the top of the list for consideration.

Making the best of it!
The moment we walked in my fiancé knew this was where he wanted to get married. Working with Michele made me feel like we weren't even planning a wedding it was such a breeze. Rehearsal night we warned them something would go wrong and it did! I got there 45 minutes before the ceremony was to start and did not have hair or make up done. My husband and our flower girl (daughter) arrived 5 minutes late. The whole team was amazing with our guests while they waited and with us as we were getting ready after an already stressful day. Our guests are still raving about the mashed potato bar! We could not have asked for a better place to celebrate such an important date in our lives!!!Sent on 01/13/2020

We are so happy that we chose Rivercrest. Everyone who attended our wedding had an excellent time and we got multiple compliments. They made planning so easy and everyone we spoke with was so helpful and responsive. Michele was so incredibly helpful a.d responsive to any of my questions and they were so accommodating to any of my requests. I would not have wanted to get married anywhere else.Sent on 02/05/2020

Stress-free package and great staff!
Wow, what a venue! We worked with Mary S. throughout the entire process and she was so helpful and had no problem answering my million questions! Her and the entire team were professional, easy to work with, and made our big day stress free! Additionally the venue is beautiful, spacious, and all our guests commented on how great everything was! We really appreciate that RiverCrest offers a soup-to-nuts package that includes catering, staff, alcohol, lighting, a ceremony space, and even local bakeries to work with through them! It was so easy and was affordable (we chose an off-season too)! They've won multiple awards and it shows!Sent on 02/16/2020

Incredibly beautiful and accommodating venue
My wife and I had an incredible wedding experience at RiverCrest. They accommodated all of our needs without hesitation. My wife and several of our guests are vegan and they each received an incredible eggplant tower entree, which many non-vegetarian guests also ordered. Many other venues we looked at practically made fun of vegetarianism/veganism and would've given my wife a steamed veggie plate as her main course.Sent on 10/05/2019
The food was fantastic, the service was excellent, and the dance floor was in great condition with enough space for everyone. We and our guests all had a great experience. I would recommend RiverCrest to any couple looking for a venue in the Chester/Montgomery county area.
RiverCrest Weddings's reply:Frances & Jason ~ I am glad that we were able to accommodate your food preferences. At RiverCrest, we are happy to customize for our couples to make the day their "own". Thanks for your positive comments on food, service and dance floor capacity. This is the best endorsement we can receive- from our couples. I am wishing you a long, healthy and prosperous married life!! Best, Mary

Best Wedding Venue
Rivercrest was absolutely the best venue for our wedding and I am so happy we selected them. My parents and I went to look for venues before I even had a ring - my husband and I were together for 8 years at the time and I wanted to make sure we got the perfect venue and date. When we walked into Rivercrest it just felt right. Having the ceremony outside between the rockwall waterfall and pool was absolutely perfect for our beach themed wedding. We had the best staff for our wedding Mary (wedding specialist), Konare (banquet manager), and Bernessa (bridal attendant).Sent on 10/06/2019
During the planning process Mary was very responsive and was able to answer any and all questions. She also did a great job coordinating with all of the other vendors. I loved working with Mary because like me she is very detail oriented. She made sure that everything came together perfectly.
We met Konare when we dropped off all of our wedding stuff the night of the rehearsal. Prior to the rehearsal, Mary and Konare walked us through the entire layout and schedule for the day of the wedding and we also went through all wedding supplies to go over proper setup. After that meeting I was confident that everything was under control. Konare did a great job of running the rehearsal and making sure the entire bridal party was comfortable and knew what they had to do. The day of Konare was checking in to make sure we were good.
At Rivercrest we also had our bridal attendant Bernessa. The whole wedding day she made sure that I had everything I needed. In the afternoon she brought my bridesmaids and I drinks and food and during pictures she made sure I had water and was staying hydrated.
We received so many compliments on our wedding the venue was gorgeous and the food was fantastic :)
Our wedding was the best day of our lives and Rivercrest pulled everything off flawlessly, we can't thank them enough

Perfect Wedding Day at RiverCrest!
We loved having our wedding at RiverCrest! They were very accommodating and Mary was exceptional with organization and responsiveness. The banquet managers guided us through our big day and helped us with anything we needed. The venue is beautiful and classy, and the cocktail hour truly wowed our guests with delicious food.

One Stop Shop
My wedding reception at Rivercrest was amazing! Michele was great at helping with the planning and organization. The wait staff was courteous. The food was incredible, our guests had nothing but compliments. The facility was large, clean, and decorated nicely. To top that all off, the wedding package comes with so much that it’s like a one stop shop to get married. I would highly recommend checking out Rivercrest!Sent on 10/02/2019

Rivercrest was amazing. Mary did a wonderful job addressing all of our questions and needs. She was always willing to make time outside of normal business hours to meet and discuss the details. They have a great program designed to coordinate all the final details that you may not have thought of. Our wedding was beautiful and everything flowed perfect.

Amazing Wedding Experience All Around
Rivercrest gave us our dream wedding! From the beautiful grounds to the enormous dance floor, the delicious food choices to the private bridal suite, they do not disappoint. I love how Michele went above and beyond our expectations and made the entire planning process stress free. Michele and team were so kind, genuine, and thoughtful. They looked after my husband and I not just on the day of the wedding, but each day leading up to the wedding. I can't recommend Rivercrest enough!Sent on 03/18/2019

The Best Day Ever
Our day was 100% PERFECT in every single way. A dream come true. Thank you SO much to Mary and the rest of the Rivercrest Team for making our day everything we wanted it to be and more. From the moment we booked Rivercrest to now looking back on the day, we have nothing but great things to say. Everyone was so accommodating. Any questions I had were answered right away. The venue is absolutely beautiful, food is AMAZING, and the staff truly works to make sure you have the best possible day. I recommend the venue any bride that wants to have the whole event at one place, have a beautiful venue for photos, a bridal suite with unlimited champagne for getting ready, and to have every little detail taken care of by the wonderful staff. Everything was so so organized and coming from someone who is all about planning every detail, Rivercrest was on it at all times. All of our friends and family are still raving about the day and how wonderful it was which makes us so, so happy. If I could do the day over again (and trust me I wish I could) I would do it at Rivercrest every timeSent on 11/13/2018

Perfect Place for Happily Ever After!
When we were deciding on a wedding venue, we knew we wanted it to be close to home, have ceremony on site, and everything included. We toured RiverCrest when it was snowy and just knew it was the place for us. From our first meeting with our wedding coordinator, Michele, to our tasting to our final meeting, we never had any stress over planning a wedding as they took care of everything at the venue! Even the cake was included in our package!Sent on 11/04/2018
The food was absolutely amazing. Our guests are still talking about the Mashed Potato Martini Bar that we had during cocktail hour. We also had Crabcake Sliders, Cheesesteak Sliders, and a Pasta station which all did not disappoint. Even the served dinners (which we chose Tuscan Chicken and Salmon) were very delicious. RiverCrest also catered towards allergies of our guests which was great.
The area itself is beautiful as it is set on a golf course. We had beautiful formal and family pictures in front of a waterfall overlooking a pool. Our first look was in front of this beautiful oak tree that was just picture perfect. The girls got ready in the very spacious Bridal Suite. It was also a quiet retreat for the bride and groom to spend a moment alone. We also did a Sparkler Send-Off at the end of the night which our banquet manager helped our guests get ready for the fun end of night option.
We couldn't have chosen a better place to hold our happily ever after!

Rivercrest was a wonderful venue! Our coordinator, Michele, was an absolute joy to work with during the process. She was extremely helpful, knowledgeable and responded to all inquiries quickly (which for a bride is huge). Michele really wanted to try and make the process stress free for us, which we greatly appreciated. The staff on the day of the wedding was also wonderful and so pleasant! Our guests all raved about the food (especially the mashed potato bar). The venue itself is beautiful; cocktail hour has ample space for guests (not crammed at all) and also allows guests to go outside to the pool area to enjoy their drinks and appetizers; the ballroom offers a cool lounge area option for people to hang out while taking a break from dancing. Overall, we can't say enough good things about Rivercrest and their team; they truly made our day special!Sent on 10/17/2018
RiverCrest Weddings's reply:Dominique, It was absolutely lovely getting to work with you and Bob and getting to know you both better! I am so glad that our team made the planning process less stressful, especially when we all tend to live life at full capacity as it is! It was awesome customizing your menu and bar for your guests and you did a great job selecting your decor, including the flower wall, the centerpieces and bouquets! All of these things made for a beautiful wedding! Thanks again for choosing our team! All my best, always, Michele

My husband and I just got married at Rivercrest in September and we could go on and on about how wonderful our experience was, not just during our wedding reception but also throughout the planning process with Michele! She was patient, kind, professional, supportive, and knowledgeable about everything to do with weddings at Rivercrest! Whenever we had questions, she was there to help and give thorough advice. We trusted her judgement and are very glad that we did, because we loved each and every part of our experience on our wedding day with Rivercrest. Other vendors we met with would rush us through meetings, or ‘squeeze us in’ to discuss our wedding, but Michele always made time for us. When we met with her to tour Rivercrest twice (once to show my parents), she was patient and kind each time. We are all so impressed with how great she and her team were. Her team worked so hard to make sure that we had a classy, healthy, fun, and unforgettable time.Sent on 02/10/2019
Rivercrest itself is perfect. The space is beautiful and clean, the grounds are friendly and incredible for photos, the food as reported by many of my guests was memorably amazing (my husband and I already knew that from our tasting), the cocktail hour was professionally fun and lovely, the dance floor is too fun, and the bridal suite fit all of our needs.
We had issues with other vendors during the planning process, but never had one, not even tiny issue with Rivercrest. They made everything easy, and were there to help. Do yourself a huge favor and save yourself stress by celebrating your special day here! Thanks so much Michele and team!

RiverCrest Any Day... HANDS DOWN!
RiverCrest is a venue in a class of its own. The staff made my wedding day so easy, fun, and most importantly, memorable. Michele Morabito knows how to make things happen! She is thorough, professional, meticulous, responsive, pays close attention to detail, and just exudes enthusiasm. You really feel like you’ve known her for years - she feels like such a genuine friend as she guides you through the process. She and the staff are so patient and kind and you really come to develop a personal relationship with the crew.Sent on 08/26/2019
The food was AMAZING and my guests STILL talk about the cocktail hour! The setup was fantastic! Everyone had easy access to the food and the reception just blew them away - from the decor (which I didn’t do anything over the top because the venue is so classy and beautiful on its own) to the food to the dance floor which is large enough to hold a little over 300 people!
The grounds are simply stunning and make for the perfect backdrop for photos. It is clear that the staff at RiverCrest take pride in the establishment. Everything is so pristine!
No ask was too large for the RiverCrest team during the days leading up to the wedding and even on the day of. They really make your day about YOU and they pay the same attention to your guests.
If you are looking for a venue that offers high-quality service, elegance, picturesque grounds, AMAZING food and cocktails, and a ballroom that requires almost nothing at all because it’s beautiful on its own, RiverCrest is the place for you!
Oh... and let me mention that their preferred vendor list is SPOT ON. I didn’t have a single bad experience with any of the vendors I selected from their list. RiverCrest delivers quality and so they only recommend the BEST vendors who provide the same level of quality.
You’re in good hands at RiverCrest!!
RiverCrest Weddings's reply:Michelle, Thank you so very much for bringing Team Michelle and William to RiverCrest! Getting to know you all better was the icing the cake for me and I am so glad that you had a spectacular time! You covered so much in your review that I don't even know where to begin, but the most important thing that I can say is thank you for trusting our entire team with your vision! The most important thing that you mentioned was that your wedding day was about YOU...and with our team it truly is! I hope to see you here soon enjoying your social membership. All my best, Michele

Beautiful Golf Club Venue
We had a beautiful reception at RiverCrest. Prior to our day, Mary was amazing with pulling together all the pieces and making sure I got her everything needed for our day. The staff was on top of all of our needs and our guests needs at the reception. When we arrived half an hour late after taking too many pictures, the staff was able to adjust on the fly by extending the appetizer hour and delaying dinner. They were great about accommodating many food allergies (and preferences). Our guests raved about the appetizers. The golf course provided a great backdrop for one of my favorite photos of sunset that day. Our night ended with a sparkler send off by the pool that the staff coordinated beautifully.Sent on 06/30/2019

Perfect Wedding Day/ Amazing team to work with
Rivercrest made my wedding day everything I had hoped it would be and then some, my day was absolutely perfect! From beautiful spaces to a team who truly wanted to work us and share our experience. I knew Rivercrest was the place for us, when I saw their Covered Patio (perfect ceremony space with a straight walk down the aisle for my groom to get a true first impression). Their bridal suite is huge, the space for wedding guests is completely separate from the club space, with every room looking beautiful. Michele was truly amazing to work with. She answered all my questions promptly and made me feel confident when I second guessed choices! Rivercrest worked with us, and helped create our vision, versus other locations that really made you feel like one of the many- who would budge on their package offerings. Our wedding was amazing and I can not say enough good things about Rivercrest!Sent on 12/27/2018

I knew that you could do it! And you did! Please give my best to your Mom and Dad! Best, Michele
