An amazing experience at Rivercrest!
Rivercrest was an absolute dream.
Michele - the wedding specialist: Planning and having a wedding during a pandemic is insanely stressful, and Michele was my go to at every turn. She was not only helpful and knowledgeable, but she was super supportive during the entire process.
The venue: What can I even say? Just look at photos. Rivercrest is such a beautiful venue that we fell in love with the very first time we saw it. The outdoors make for amazing photos. The bridal suite was spacious and comfortable for getting ready. The ballroom and cocktail hour area is sophisticated and beautiful. The terrace gave us a feeling of getting married outside in the cold month of November.
The staff: Every single person we encountered on the day of our wedding was helpful and kind. They all were very respectful of the 6' guidelines and wore their masks. We really appreciated all of the help and respect they gave us during our day. They are 100% on point with COVID restrictions and guidelines, making us and our guests feel so safe.
The food: My FAVORITE part. Everything from the bridal suite in the morning until dinner was absolutely delicious. If you don't get married at Rivercrest for any other reason, the food is enough.
Overall, I wish I could do my day all over again because it was so wonderful. Highly recommend Michele and her team at Rivercrest for your wedding day!Sent on 04/05/2021

Words cannot describe how truly amazing our wedding was at Rivercrest in the middle of a pandemic! From our very first meeting with Michele to our wedding day, we were provided with excellent service and accommodations. Michele was always a phone call or email away with all of the ups and downs (which were many!) with COVID and changing restrictions. The staff was extremely prepared and exceptional with cleanliness and following COVID precautions to make all of our guests feel safe. All of our guests raved about the beautiful space and amazing food. I would not hesitate to recommend Rivercrest to anyone!Sent on 02/27/2021
RiverCrest Weddings's reply:Kristen, I miss you guys so very much! But, yes, thru the many, many ups and downs, I am so pleased to have had the opportunity to get you and Blake through it all so that you could have a fabulous celebration! All my best, always, Michele

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.

Look no further! RiverCrest is the BEST!
Looking for a wedding venue? RiverCrest is the way to go!!! Our wedding was literally the weekend before Covid shut down the world. The staff at RiverCrest made sure every safety precaution was taken and really made everyone feel safe even though we were all still confused about what covid actually was. Besides the covid talk, the venue is BEAUTIFUL and Michele, Mary and their staff are amazing!! The day before the wedding, we went to the venue to drop off any items we had and we were told not to worry about anything because they will handle it all. And boy did they ever! The staff really made sure our special day went off without a hitch and were there with us every step of the way to make sure we stayed on track. Everything from the amazing food to the staff and the venue itself was perfect and I am so happy we chose RiverCrest!!Sent on 03/10/2021

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

The Perfect Day
We just got married on 11/14/2020 and it truly was the best day of my life! Obviously given the pandemic - planning a wedding was not the easiest thing I’ve ever done. However, Michele was such a pleasure to work with! She was so responsive and supportive during everything. Answering all our questions and even there just to send some support on the rough days. The team we had the day of the wedding were just as wonderful - I didn’t stress about a single thing. They ensured it was all taken care of! The food, the terrace, the ballroom - all of it was exactly what we wanted! I could not recommend RiverCrest enough!Sent on 11/23/2020

Covid wedding made to perfection
Where to begin.... from the minute our tour started with Michele (Wedding Specialist) and on; we were given EXCEPTIONAL service. My husband and I enjoyed planning every detail with Michele (who never once made us feel pressured; she thoroughly listened to everything we were looking for and wanted for our big day).Sent on 02/25/2021
Our original wedding date was 3-21-2020; we were forced to postpone 6 days before our wedding. Talk about stressful! We then had to postpone 3 different dates due to COVID. RiverCrest could not have been more accommodating when having to reschedule numerous times. Michele was always there to be the voice of reason and the only one who was able to calm my nerves ensuring everything was going to work out and be okay.
FINALLY, on our fourth date set in place (8-14-2020) RiverCrest hosted the most AMAZING outdoor wedding for us. From getting ready in the bridal suite (which by the way is huge), to the set up and serving us and our guests like Kings and Queens, it was an absolute DREAM. Our guests ranted and raved about the service and food. Also, every person there had acknowledged the overall cleanliness and COVID precautions taken by the staff.
My husband and I truly could not speak any more highly of Rivercrest, Michele and every single one of the staff members who played a role in our big day! It was perfection!
RiverCrest Weddings's reply:Angela, There is no one else that I would rather plan four separate wedding dates with than you! Future generations will be astounded by your wedding story. Even when you were down about something you were still up. Your personality gave you the perseverance necessary to make it through the challenging times! You and Joey deserved the very best and I'm glad our team had the opportunity to make it happen for you. I am so happy to have played a role in your day and see you walk down the aisle. Thank you for sticking it out with me and with our team! Michele

Our July 31, 2020 Wedding
We had our Covid wedding at RiverCrest this past July and let me tell you, it was what dreams are made of. Not only were they able to create a beautiful and safe area for us to have our reception, the wedding team did everything in their power to make sure we had the most perfect day. They were wonderful to work with during the entire planning process; any question we had, big or small, Michele did not hesitate to get back to us right away. I would recommend this venue to any couple looking to get married. Not only is it a beautiful place with lovely views for photos, it also has an amazing staff who will do everything they can to make your day exceptional!Sent on 02/25/2021
RiverCrest Weddings's reply:Katie, It was so great working thru all of the challenges with you and Steve and I'm glad your day was fantastic even if it was different from our original plan for you! I know that you and Steve can conquer any mountain together after this experience! All my best, Michele

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!

Could not have been more perfect!!!!
I knew 10 years ago I was going to get married at Rivercrest. I had been to numerous events at Rivercrest and everything was perfect. The first time we went to speak to Mary about the venue, we felt like we were family. They made everything so smooth that the stress leading up to the big day and on the big day was minimal. On our wedding day, everything was perfect. There was no stress and all of the staff members were wonderful. If we ever need to have a formal event again, we will definitely be going back to Rivercrest.Sent on 10/15/2020

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

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!
