We had such a great time at Four Rivers. It is absolutely beautiful and we had many compliments about it. We had the ceremony under the shelter and reception was held in the grand ball room. The staff is wonderful to work with. They truly care about you and are extremely helpful and want to make sure your day is extra special. I really enjoyed working with Mary and Victoria. We used Uncle Bubs catering which was also excellant. Victoria did a great job of coordinating with them as well as my DJ and photographer. We wouldn't have had our wedding any other way. I highly reccomend this venue and staff to work with!!!

We absolutely loved getting married here! Mary is incredibly helpful throughout the entire planning process. On the day of, she coordinated with my vendors to ensure everything went off without a hitch. It was such a stress free day thanks to the staff at Four Rivers and our other vendors. We used Duke's Catering, one of their preferred vendors. Mo is fantastic and really went above and beyond what I would expect a caterer to do for a wedding. The food was delicious, and the wait staff was friendly and prompt. We received so many compliments on how unique our wedding venue was. It was a beautiful day all around!

Four Rivers is a beautiful facility for a wedding. We held our ceremony at the shelter and our reception at the Grand Hall. So many compliments were received of the beauty of the facility. We also used Cutting Edge Catering - an approved vendor through Four Rivers and also received many of compliments on the wonderful taste of the food we selected - which was very important to us. The staff at Four Rivers is excellent, professional and have been working with bridal parties for quite a long time as they seem to know every question I came to them with. Some might think the cost is high for the rental but for us, knowing that the money we spent will go back into the county in which we live and be put back into this beautiful facility that was built environmentally friendly and is used for educational purposes, that was key for us. So not only did our money rent the facility it will now pay it forward for other activities within the facility. Renting the entire facility out was also key, it allowed us to decorate on our own time when we were ready and have more time to relax on the big day!

I absolutely loved getting married here. The venue and grounds were gorgeous and the staff was nothing short of amazing. They were so flexible with all the arrangements we needed to make as well. For example, I am a competitive roller figure skater, and I wanted to skate on the floor with my father for our first dance, and they had no problem with this! They truly do everything they can to make you feel special and to make your day go exactly the way they planned. We also used Uncle Bub's Catering (on their preferred list) and the coordinated so well with everything! Nothing short of perfection!

This venue is absolutely stunning!! I booked it as soon as I could since it fit our personalities perfectly. The guest services coordinator is very wonderful to work with. I attended an open house in January/February before I booked and again a year later which was incredibly helpful! The preferred caterers come to talk with visitors and the venue has many decorating ideas as well. There are many great places for pictures and very accessible for guests who are limited physically. It rained on our wedding day but I felt at peace knowing that there was a back up plan. Fortunately, we never had to use it! Would recommend this place in a heartbeat to others!!

Four Rivers was a wonderful spot for our May wedding. We wanted something outdoorsy but handicap accessible for elderly relatives. We were able to have a lovely outdoor ceremony and then move right inside for our reception. We were blessed with some great weather, but I felt comfortable with a solid "plan B" to move inside if that hadn't been the case. When we were initially looking for venue spaces, Four Rivers was a little pricier than we anticipated given it was just for the space. However, Mary and the staff really provided top notch service, and I felt the cost was well worth it in the end. The bridal room was very nice to get ready in beforehand. The staff coordinated with our other vendors and were on site the whole day to ensure everything went as planned. Our wedding went perfectly, and I was really able to relax and enjoy our day.
