We had a fantastic wedding at Great River last month, and such wonderful comments from our guests about the food (one of the most important things to us!), venue, and staff! Our wedding day was so smooth and well organized the only thing we had to worry about was if we had gotten to spend enough time with each of our guests, many who said it was one of the best weddings they had ever been to. I would definitely recommend Great River for a venue to host your rehearsal dinner and wedding. From planning up through the big day they were wonderful to work with!

Lindsay, Julianne and the staff did a phenomenal job. The food was excellent, the staff was attentive, and the day was perfect. We truly didn't have to worry about a thing the entire evening. They even took care of a few small mistakes my wife and I made (we forgot some place cards) I honestly couldn't recommend them any more, we do not have a single regret with having them host our wedding. We also had our rehearsal dinner at Monty's which was phenomenal. Throughout the planning process, Lindsay was responsive and helpful.

If you plan a wedding here, here are a couple of recommendations:

1. Rent out Monty's! It's expensive, but worth it. The extra space and atmosphere for the cocktail hour can't be beat. It also allows for the best rain back-up plan on site if you are planning your ceremony there. Not having to worry about the weather in the days leading up to the wedding was a big relief.

2. Julia's is one of their cake vendors, and they were awesome! We received a lot of compliments on how good take cake was, something that doesn't usually happen at most weddings.

3. We used Local Motion Ent. as the DJ, one of Great Rivers preferred vendors. Bill was fantastic and kept the dance floor going all night. He's a true professional and I couldn't recommend him enough. Also, go for the up-lighting as it really brought the room to life.

Our experience, start to finish, at Great River was spectacular. EVERY detail was considered when preparing. The day and night of the wedding was wonderful as well. Any "glitches" (there are always some) were immediately attended to by our Great River consultants which allowed the whole event to proceed seamlessly. We couldn't have been happier. If you are considering this venue and have questions, feel free to ask Lindsay for my contact information.

Lindsay was extremely accommodating and professional throughout the process of planning our wedding. She was very responsive and patient with any and all questions we had. On the day of, she and the rest of the staff were always one step ahead of what we needed. In addition, they were very understanding when we were running late to our first look, not skipping a beat to make sure we got back on track. Everything was setup the way we had hoped and we couldn't have asked for a better group to help us celebrate one of the biggest, most important days of our lives.

I would recommend this venue to any bride looking to book her wedding. The coordinator was extremely helpful and responsive leading up to the wedding. She would respond to emails in a very timely way, was always willing to provide recommendations and willing to work around our schedules for meetings. On the day of, the staff took care of us- they greeted us getting out of the limo, made sure we had everything we needed during photos, and were by our sides the whole night (not in an annoying overbearing way but always made sure our glasses were full and we were where we needed to be.) The venue itself made for a very elegant wedding and my husband and I had the time of our lives! If I had to do it all over again I would most definitely pick GR again!!

We had an excellent experience on our wedding day at Great River Golf Club. Lindsay was very helpful leading up to the event and was very easy to work with. Her attention to detail was excellent. She had everything covered on the day which allowed us to really relax and enjoy our time. One of the things that really stood out to us was how expertly she set up our centerpieces. All we had to do was explain a rough idea of what we wanted and she totally ran with it. Needless to say the room looked amazing when we first walked in after the ceremony had concluded. The event staff were excellent on the day as well. Lisanne was basically our personal assistant all day. She took great care of us, making sure we had everything we needed from drinks to help with photos. She was extremely attentive, but never in the way. With all of the thoughtful planning (and sometimes stress) that goes into a wedding, when the day came it was beautiful and all of the planning was carried out with tremendous expertise. Our guests are still calling/emailing us saying how great the food was, how beautiful the venue was, and most of all what a great time they had! We will definitely recommend Great River Golf Club to others looking for a venue. Thank you again Lindsay (and Great River staff) for making our day such a blast!

My husband and I are so happy with our choice of the Great River Golf club for our July 2012 wedding. Shannen was so attentive and helpful through the whole process. She was one of the biggest reasons we chose Great River after looking at about a dozen venues. We loved that there is only one event there are a time, we had the whole building just for the wedding. The grounds are beautiful and perfect for pictures. The food is delicious. Many guests said that it is the best wedding food they have ever had. the staff is so kind and flexible. It rained on my wedding day and the ceremony was inside and just as beautiful as it would have been outside. Julianne, the bridal concierge was so attentive to every detail on the wedding day. She made sure that my husband and I were taken care of and happy. She helped to calm my nerves too!

I highly recommend the Great River Golf Club for anyone looking for a venue that only does one wedding at a time. They can really cater to what you want and spend a lot time making sure that you are happy.

I can't even rate this venue high enough to explain how wonderful they were. Throughout the entire planning process (almost 1 year) they were responsive and we felt like everything we asked for they were able to accommodate. I'm a very organized person and they even impressed me! They thought of literally everything. The food was delicious, the drinks were good, and the service was outstanding. We had our ceremony here as well at their gazebo which was a beautiful location. In addition to Shannen (event coordinator) we also had Julianne (wedding concierge) available to us all night. They made sure we had food and drinks, Julianne made sure husband had his jacket for the cake cutting pictures, they drove us to do pictures on the golf course, and were always checking to see if we needed anything (but not in an annoying way). My mom said she felt like she could just be a guest instead of feeling like a host since everything was so well taken care of. I am so glad I picked this venue. We have had so many compliments on how beautiful everything was!

The staff at Great River was exceptional! They provided curteous, attentive, detailed service from the moment I started looking into their facility to the moment thast last guest left at night. They handled all of my questions and problems with ease and professionalism. My husband and wedding party were thrilled with subdued attention they received; their glasses were filled and belongings taken care of. I do not EVER recommend businesses unless I am proud to stand behind them. Great River is one of the Few that deserve accolades.

It doesnt get any better than the Great River Golf Club. Worth every penny for the beautiful room and exceptional service and awesome food. People are still telling me I had a fairytale wedding a year later. We still get compliments on the Great River to this day. The service was really above & beyond, the bride, groom, and anyone for that matter, does not have to worry about a thing at this place!! Jennifer, Karen & Julianne are amazing to work with.

I worked with Shannen and Julianne for my 05/15/2011 wedding. Shannen is a very helpful coordinator and kept us on track in terms of vendors and coordinating for our ceremony. She is very responsive and very knowledgeable; she went to great lengths to answer my detailed questions via email - super important since I was planning from NYC and she was based in Milford. I wanted to incorporate a Chinese Tea Ceremony in the reception, which GRGC was happy to accommodate and helped me set up for. They also managed to hide the groom's cake I ordered as a surprise from him (which is no mean feat; my hubby is a very sharp fox :). The staff at GRGC provided top notch service to our guests and did not rush us out at the end of our wedding either. Food is delicious and the space is amazing (fits up to 160 comfortably, 180 if you simply must have everyone there). Their ballroom is a very traditional, warm, & beautiful reception space and Julianne was amazing at keeping time and making sure that my now-husband and I were taken care of also. It was rainy and overcast on our wedding day - we were supposed to be married at the outdoor gazebo area they have onsite, but the ceremony still felt very special inside of the ballroom space. I didn't even miss the gazebo. I highly recommend this place! I'm only giving them a 4.5 for value because they are very pricey in terms of food packages available for the area, but for the service and atmosphere, the place can't be beat. One event only at a time at this property - a must-have if you don't want to deal with someone else's celebration going on at the same time as yours.

Beautiful venue! The food was wonderful and the staff was very pleasant to work with. They were very accommodating to all our requests. The only negative feedback I have is that we were unable to take home the meals from guests that did not show. Other than that, working with Great River was a very positive experience!

Thank you for a beautiful wedding! All the details were perfect, and we did not have to worry about a thing. I just think some of the extras were over priced....I think the waterfall photo should be included, and that $350 plus $6 per person was excessive for the chocolate fountain. However the service from Lindsay and Shannen was phenomenal, and I had an amazing time.

I would highly recommend Great River Golf Club to anyone looking at it. The wedding coordinator I dealt with was amazingly helpful and flexible to anything I wanted to do. She was always quick to return my phone calls and was very patient. The venue was unbelievably beautiful. When I walked into the ballroom I couldn't believe that it was my beautiful wedding I was entering! They also have a "bridal concierge" who is discreetly nearby all night to help you with anything you need, but was not in your face attentive. The catering servers were quick with bringing and clearing the plates, but they didn't take it too soon or get in the way.

The venue is beautiful. I only have two things I would have done differently. One, had the grandparents at the rehearsal. When the processional started they did not leave enough room between couples and when they got to the end of the walkway they did not know which side to sit on. Second, we had a premium open bar for our guests. I was disappointed to hear that the other alcohol on the back of the bar that was not in the package was not covered/put out of site causing some confusion to our guests who asked for a certain brands and were told that "no you can not have that". A fee was charged to rent the bar/grill and should have covered the cost to prepare so this would not happen.
