Rafael and his staff at the Mohawk River Country Club were EXCEPTIONAL. The food was amazing and we couldn't have asked for a more professional, friendly and accommodating staff. MRCC really bent over backwards to make our wedding reception what we wanted. Rafael and his staff made us feel so special. During our planning process they were open to all of our ideas to help personalize our reception -- adding an ice cream sundae bar, hot dog stand, and making sure to have special beer on tap. It was an absolute pleasure meeting with Rafael and Debbie to plan. They both made sure everything ran smoothly and that we (and our families) were taken care of the night of the party.
I would HIGHLY recommend this venue.

I cannot say enough good things about our wedding, and it is all due to MRCC. I wish I could give more than 5 stars! We mostly worked with Debbie, except one day we did deal with Rafael, and both are absolutely incredible. I have not been to many weddings in my adult life, but I don't think any other places offers the exceptional personalized service that Debbie and the staff offer here. We spent two years planning our wedding, and Debbie has been nothing but extremely helpful the whole time we were planning. We often called, emailed, or stopped by during those 2 years and she always made time for us and never made us feel like we were bothering her. She treated us like family and in return she feels like family to us. She bent over backwards and even threw in some extras for us without us even asking her, and I felt like she truly could not do enough for us. The day of the wedding, she was constantly present for whatever we needed no matter what it was (tissues for our parents, scissors to trim my bouquet, etc). The weather was uncooperative but she did everything in her power to make sure I was happy and she made sure to deal with all of our vendors' questions and concerns so myself and my family did not have to. The wedding was absolutely gorgeous and our guests have not stopped talking about it, even a week and a half later. The food was phenomenal, and don't even get me started on the Parisian table dessert display. My guests had their jaws on the floor when they saw that. We got so many compliments on how wonderful everything looked and how great the food and service was. I would highly HIGHLY recommend this place, my wedding was everything I could have ever asked for and Debbie and her staff are the reason it was as magical as it was!

We truly had the perfect wedding thanks to Rafael and the staff at Mohawk River Country Club. We planned our wedding from out of state and Rafael was so helpful and responsive to all of my questions and concerns over email. He was so accommodating and made the day run smoothly. He was awesome.

We had our ceremony there and it was a beautiful scene--something out of a fairy tale with birds chirping, flowers in full bloom, and the lush green golf course in the background.

After the ceremony, the food was plentiful and delicious!!! I can't stress enough the quality of the food. It was top notch, as was everything at this venue.

There is no other venue that even comes close to this one. It is absolutely spectacular.

My granddaughter and her new husband were married here and I cannot recommend this venue highly enough. Everyone should add this to their list of places to visit. Deb and Raphael were incredible and there was nothing they did not do to make our event a huge success.. Waitstaff and food were of the best quality I have ever seen. Every person I have spoken to since the event is still talking about the amount and quality of the food and the superb presentation of everything... Our day was perfect and the weather was great for pictures outside and inside is beautiful.. we took advantage of the fireplaces in the front foyer for family shots and it was wonderful.. will recommend to anyone I speak to and I would give it more than 5 stars....

The staff at MRCC helped to make our day a fairy tale. Raphael was so easy to work with and wanted to make sure that everything was perfect. Debbie was amazing making sure everyone was where they needed to be. We can't say enough about the food, service and attention to detail they provide. They made our fairy tale a reality and a scene from Hollywood.

This is by far one of the BEST value wedding venues in the capital region. My husband and I looked at a bunch of venues, and this one stood out among them all. From our first meeting with Debbie, we knew she would be great. We felt super comfortable with her from the very beginning and knew we could call her at any point in the wedding planning process to ask her questions. I honestly could write a book on how amazing this place is. Let's start with the food.... OMG! The cocktail hour alone could have been enough for the entire night. From the multiple butlered hors d' oeuvres to the many hot and cold stations.... Absolutely delicious!!! Ontop of all that...you also get a plated dinner! ....let's not forget dessert! We opted for the Parisian table, and are so glad we did! There is no way to taste all the dessert options, sooo many! One thing that I loved about this venue compared to many others is that the cocktail room is separate from the ballroom. Not only is it separate, but there are multiple places for the guests to sit during cocktail hour instead of standing. The ballroom is absolutely breathtaking with its chandeliers... I Loved the chandeliers! We had our wedding outside, and the grounds are kept impeccable. The bridal suite is huge and very easily accommodated my very large bridal plus some!! Debbie was absolutely amazing the day of our wedding. I honestly think she did the work of 3 people. Every time I turned around, there she was doing something, and she was always 10 steps ahead of me! The entire staff was awesome and always friendly! Every single person we talked to that came to our wedding said it was THE BEST wedding they had ever been to..... Now if that doesn't say something about this place, then i don't know what does!! There are so many amazing things about this place, and could write so much more. Have your wedding here and you will see for yourself! I can guarantee you will not be disappointed!!

Debbie and Rafael Jr were a lot of fun to work with. They were more than accommodating with our requests and made sure that everybody had a good time. Our wedding was amazing and everything I could have ever dreamed of. It rained last minute and we had to move the ceremony inside but I was impressed with how it turned out and how beautiful it looked in such a short amount of time. The food was excellent and everybody raved about the cocktail hour. Dessert was definitely my favorite- we had the parisienne table which was in the same room as cocktail hour and everything was delicious. Thanks again for everything!!

In the Capital Region, the Mohawk River Country Club will be the best deal you can come by. Everyone keeps telling me thank you so much, everything was so lavish. The food was delicious and plentiful. We've had several people the day after our wedding say they were still full. The grounds are beautiful, the staff is so incredibly flexible and calm. As a bride you will feel one less stressor if you book here. They know what they're doing and they do it well and for reasonable prices. Amazing experience, couldn't have chosen anywhere better.

After visiting multiple wedding venues in the area, Scott and I chose Mohawk River Country Club in Rexford. What sealed the deal for us was the VALUE you get for what you pay. We had our ceremony here outside and it was a beautiful setting with the rolling hills and weeping willow trees. The cocktail hour is AMAZING -so much food to eat, the guests thought it was the dinner. You can also chose a "shot bar" with bottles of different flavors of Grey Goose that is accompanied by caviar. Then you move into the reception ballroom where you receive your actual dinner (lemon chicken AND beef), two pieces of meat, both of which are delicious. We also had signature drinks which was fun. It is made with HPnotiq which they made sure to have there to make. The bridal suite is huge and is a good spot to take pictures in front of the pretty window. Debbie worked with us and was GREAT! She's a ball of energy and we shared lots of laughs. Overall, the venue is very well taken care of, the food is outrageous, staff is very friendly and personable, and I don't believe you will be able to find a venue around here that offers what Mohawk does for the price you pay. All of you brides out there that are looking for a lot of value without breaking the bank, this is it!

Wow!
Debbie and Rafael were AMAZING. From the first meeting in October to right up to the day-of in June, Debbie was my GO-TO Girl!!! It was SOOOOOOO nice to not have to worry about a thing for the duration of our time at the Mohawk River Country Club. The entire staff (with the leadership of Debbie and Rafael) ran like a well-oiled machine! Of our 130 guests, a majority made a point to let us know that this was BY FAR the BEST wedding they had been to...EVER! From the beautifully arranged garden ceremony with the annual flowers, green grass, brick isle, and central gazebo - to the amazing food offerings (CRAZY cocktail hour stations and passed hoursd’oeurves, professional dinner service, out-of-this-world dessert room), the BEAUTIFUL ambience, and the accommodating staff...our ceremony and reception were PERFECT! My photographer (Tom Bryant, with Photo Phrame Photography) and DJ (Claude Sawyer, with La Boom Entertainment) each let me know that the MRCC was at the top of their FAVORITE venues to work with/at.
The value of the staff attentiveness (to wedding party and guests) and the incredible venue and food displays makes this location a TOP RIVAL to anything the popular local catering/wedding venues even come close to offering!!!
I would recommend this venue, staff, food, service, etc. to ANYONE within 3 hours of Rexford, NY!!

Amazing time, amazing food, amazing venue!! This is a hidden gem in the capital region. The food was incredible and so was the cost. I loved that all my guests had a place to sit during cocktail hour (a rarity!), that we had the venue all to ourselves for the entire day, the bridal suite was awesome, the helpfulness of Debbie was amazing, and it's a gorgeous land scape for taking wedding photos. I would highly recommend this venue if you love feeding people until they can't eat any more! I wish I could do it all over again because it was so great.

This facility came recommended to us and I can see why.

Debbie was by far the best wedding hall coordinator. From the begining nothing but accomodating! Raphael and Debbie have 5 star service and 5 star food what you would expect in the city!
Through the whole process they made it easy. They offer you one marvelous package, no haggling over different levels of service.

Our guest are still talking about their Coctail Hour and dessert bar! Not only was their an abundance of food but everything was fresh and terrific! The hall is clean and elegant. The ceremony was beautiful on their golf course.

If I have anything to plan in the future it would definately be at the Mohawk River Country Club again!

I am so glad we went with Mohawk River Country Club for our reception site. It was gorgeous. The food is excellent. Debbie and Raphael are awesome to work with. They include a lot for the price, for example chair covers, flower petals, an amazing cocktail hour, champagne, tealights, etc. As soon as we arrived, we were catered to. We had champagne on ice in our bridal suite. We took pictures near the beautiful pond and wooden bridge and the waiters were bringing us food from the cocktail hour. That was really nice because we were hungry, but had to take pictures so they fed us from the start. After pictures, I let my bridal party go to the last half hour of cocktail hour so they could enjoy themselves. They brought so much food upstairs in the bridal suite for me and my husband we couldn't even finish it. I love that at MRCC you are the only event for the entire site. There is no one else enjoying their special day around you. Other places we looked at said that there might be another wedding upstairs or downstairs, I was very turned off by that. Our day was very warm and beautiful for October, we had sunshine and 78 degrees, so we got to take advantage of a bonfire outside, a lot of our guests really enjoyed that. I was inside dancing the whole time, thanks to DJ Vinny Vin of nonstopmusic, but many guests said they liked that. I also love the fact that there were so many beautifully decorated tables for guests to sit at for cocktail hour, tables inside and outside. Who wants to stand around and eat with a drink and plate in your hand?? After the wedding, people were telling me that that was the best wedding they had ever been to. Thank you Debbie and Raphael!

I am so glad we went with Mohawk River Country Club for our reception site. It was gorgeous. The food is excellent. Debbie and Raphael are awesome to work with. They include a lot for the price, for example chair covers, flower petals, an amazing cocktail hour, champagne, tealights, etc. As soon as we arrived, we were catered to.

This venue is BEAUTIFUL and "WOW"'s guests with their displays of food throughout the night! Rafael is very accomodating and doesn't penny pinch, in other words- he told me, "if you want the lace overlays we will throw them in, I'm not going to get upset over a couple dollars if it makes the deal."

You are the ONLY wedding that day, so you have the whole venue and are not on a tight time frame. Half of my guests were early because we used a shuttle and didn't want people missing the cocktail hour, and it was no problem. We also went early and took pictures outside. That morning they were actually planting flowers and sprucing up the grounds, as it was early April and no flowers were out...This is more than what I expected!

Great service and very professional!

We were married on March 26, 2011. Rafael and Debby were incredible to work with over the 2 years of planning. The were extremely accommodating to us as we had a lot of little details that we wanted included including a signature drink (which was delicious). The price was amazing for what they offer you!!! Our guest were in awe over the cocktail hour and the presentation that was displayed. We have been to so many weddings in which our dinner was cold or just over cooked and we had 204 guest and our dinner was PERFECT! They accommodated our vegetarians and gluton free guest as well which was pretty impressive. With all of this being said, we cannot wait to be invited to someone else's wedding at the Mohawk as we loved everything about it there! Our wedding was truley perfect!

I couldn't have asked for a better day of my life!!!! My husband and I were just married there on Friday. Every single one of our guests were amazing at how beautiful everything was. The venue, the candy bar display, cocktail hour, and the reception area. All of the guests were floored with the cocktail hour and we got nothing but compliments with dinner. I would highly recommend this venue for any future wedding couple.

Not only was the venue beautiful and pleasant, the staff and owner made the experience complete. Rafael made sure everything was going in order and on time and did so with the upmost professionalism and did not cause any stress whatsoever.

Everything was perfect! The owners and staff were very responsive to our needs (the owner actually stopped by every table during the evening to see if he could do anything extra for anyone). They also threw in some extras for free and as a surprise (charger plates and an extra station at the cocktail hour). We also felt like we got so much for our money - the cocktail hour was amazing! Several of our guests commented that they thought that the cocktail hour was dinner. I couldn't have been happier with how everything turned out and would definitely recommend this venue for the ceremony and reception.

When my daughter became engaged, we starting checking out different venues for her wedding reception. We did check out about 11 or 12 places. The 2nd place we went to Mohawk River Country Club (MRCC). We immediately fell in love with Rafael and Deb.
Being somewhat leery that it may be too good to be true, we kept on searching.
However, in our minds, we both kept coming back to the MRCC. Finally after about 6 weeks, we made another appointment with Rafael. This time with my future son-in-law in tow. Until this time, he had said you two check it out. I'll be fine with whatever. The meeting, by far, surpassed his expectations of what was being offered and the beauty and elegance of the building and its gorgeous exterior.
He just looked at my daughter and said "Wow, this is it!! I say you stop looking now and we book our date."
In talking to other brides who had held their weddings/receptions there, they advised not to worry there will be plenty of food. No one will go away hungry. Well, I must say that is an understatement. The cocktail hour was phenomenal, both the food and the presentation of it. The demeanor of Rafael's staff was superb. We actually had to remind people during the cocktail hour that a full meal would be served once we were in the ballroom.
Needless to say, a lasting impression was made on everyone who attended my daughters wedding. Family members from near and far were literally blown away with the entire day. That made the bride, groom and myself very happy.
Rafael sits down and explains how it normally goes and he takes you from start to finish. Deb never had a problem with my constant phone calls asking for this, or about that. She had a smile in her voice on the phone and in person.
The MRCC is truly a class act. If you want to steer clear of a cookie cutter wedding reception and can't afford the Platinum Weddings we hear about on television, then the MRCC is the place you want to go. You can have your own Platinum wedding on a white gold budget.
We did use the bridal suite for the females in the wedding party to get ready before the wedding and it was an amazing experience. The furnishings lend themselves to gorgeous photo opportunities. Everything is right there at your fingertips. Also, the room is large enough to accommodate quite a large wedding party in my estimation.
One note I must add is that my future son-in-law did ask about what would happen if he or someone else wanted seconds on their meal. Would there be enough food? Rafael smiled, as only Rafael can, and said don't you worry, if you want seconds on your meal, I will personally deliver them to you. Needless to say, I don't think anyone had room for seconds. Rafael, was there the entire day supervising every aspect of the day. He was not there, in your face, but in a very non-intrusive manner. He and his staff always have a smile on their faces.
It makes you enjoy the day that much more. I say KUDOS to Rafael, Deb and the entire wait staff. I also know there are many more people behind the scenes, but this is a smooth running machine and for certain, Rafael does it up right. You will never regret a decision to have your big day celebrated at this phenomenal venue.

Raphael and Deb made our Wedding a huge success. They helped me deal with bride anxiety and my favorite quote from Raphael was "don't worry we'll get you married". He was ready to step in at the last minute to officiate as she was running late. The Food menu was fantastic, my only complaint was that I was too busy to eat it all! Hopefully someone I know will chose this site for their special day so that I can taste all the food. Very pleased, was a fantastic day.

We chose Mohawk River Country Club for both our ceremony and reception, and it truly was the best decision. After looking at a few other "typical" places in the area we went to view Mohawk as it had been highly reccomended from many others. The package that they can put together for your wedding is incredible, and well worth the money. Raphael (the owner) is absolutely amazing to work with, any wish you have he will do his best to accomodate. His "right hand man" Deb is also easy and fun to work with, she was always smiling and never once questioned anything we had in mind. Everyone who attended our wedding raves to us "that was the best wedding we have been to", I truly don't think our day would have been so unforgettable if it had been anywhere else. Please look past the same, typical places in this area and give this one a try, you will not regret it!

I would definitely recommend having a wedding or event here. Take a look at the menu on the website and you will see why. There was so much food and it was wonderful. Rafael and his staff took care of everything from setting up placecards and centerpieces to organizing our rehearsal. I am still hearing rave reviews about the food, and our wedding was four months ago!

The value is fantastic at this venue, reasonable for the unbelievable amount of food and drink that were served! The places that were in need of improvement included space (the venue suggests no more than 220-230, but we were cramped with 190), there was a small lack of communication for the cocktail hour concerning the bridal party (availability of food for the bridal party in the bridal suite), and we received mixed reviews on the chicken, but RAVING reviews about the beef (fantastic!!!!). That being said, if we could do this over again, we would DEFINITELY choose this venue - the cocktail hour alone is worth the money that is spent without taking into consideration the French style serving, optional Parisian table (WORTH the extra money), and such. A wonderful experience.

They made it so easy by receiving the seating via fax and then a few days before the event, I dropped off everything from favors to the cake cutter and it was all arranged beautifully!

check out this article about Mohawk River country Club the local newspaper ran. I can't believe they wouldn't return a deposit or at least a partial refund for a canceled wedding because of a Marine being deployed to Afghanistan. Shame on them. I'll never set foot in that place and i'll tell all my armed forces friends and vets.
