My husband and I had our wedding reception at Riderwood on September 28, 2013. We had such an AMAZING wedding thanks to Ramon, the event coordinator, and all of his staff. He was flexible to work with and gave us amazing and beautiful ideas for our wedding. The staff he has put together worked harmoniously to put together such a great day for us. Anything we needed Ramon and his staff was there to assist. My guests could not stop raving about how beautiful the venue was and how delicious the food was. The level of professionalism displayed by Ramon and his staff gave me confidence that my wedding reception was going to be amazing, and it was!!!

This venue space is very nice. The location makes the wedding ceremony and reception very convenient for guests because they have a chapel and spacious reception hall at one location. The layout and design are elegant which is the main reason I decided to use them. Note however, you cannot use the chapel if you do not use the reception hall.

When choosing my venue for my ceremony and reception I visited many locations to get a good comparison of who offered what. I was most pleased with the facilities Riderwood offered, but their options regarding food and beverage were not equivalent to the others in terms of value for cost. After expressing my concerns with their event coordinator they made adjustments to fit my needs, so I ultimately decided to go with them. After signing the contract it soon became evident that my requests were not a priority. Responses from the catering team were not timely and it was like pulling teeth to get information. I ended up having to request several face to face meetings to get questions I previously asked via email answered. I received responses through email like "I have been really busy, I'll get back to you soon" and it wasn't until I asked again, sometimes several times, I would get an answer. Specific things I was told would not be an issue prior to signing the contract became a problem when it was time to iron out the details. This became frustrating because it seemed as though there was no compromise on some of the requests.

The food and customer service of the staff at the reception was very good. The waiters and waitresses were all very friendly and attentive to the guests. Many of my guests made remarks on how delicious the food was. The overall experience on the day of the wedding ceremony and reception was wonderful. It was a little stressful working with the Riderwood team in the months leading up to the event date, but it turned out to be an amazing day!

Riderwood was everything we could have asked for in a wedding and catering venue. The chapel is quaint and personal with just enough room for a medium-large wedding. The spacious and beautiful reception room is one of the best kept secrets in the area and the new renovations just aren't given justice on the website or brochures. The room across the hall for the cocktail hour and other small events was just perfect. We were able to decorate to our heart's desire. Our guests were happy and comfortable and that's just the venue. The food was AMAZING! Ramon and Carolina did everything they could to make sure our Caribbean and southern backgrounds were satisfied with flavorful, delicious, and gourmet food choices. The flexibility of the team and what they offered us will not be matched. I'd recommend Riderwood to anyone. I was a little apprehensive given the nature of the campus (senior citizen community), and I wasn't sure if we'd be able to party as much and as loud :) as we wanted without infringing on this delicate group's privacy . All worked out well. Our guests are still talking about Riderwood!

My husband and I wanted a wedding venue where we could hold both our wedding and reception and we found that at Riderwood. The grounds are beautiful and well-kept which makes for great outdoor pictures. The non-denominational chapel is the perfect size of a medium to large wedding and the performance hall was perfect for our reception. The staff worked with us to help plan our event - Riderwood has an on-site coordinator (Carolina) that can connect you to event rental companies if necessary.

Riderwood also catered our wedding. At first, we were unsure of how the food was going to taste, but after our tasting we knew that we picked a great location. Everyone loved the salmon and steak.

Riderwood is a great location if you are looking for an affordable option. Because it is a residential community there are some limitations (for instance, your event has to be over and you have to be out of the building by 11 pm). Other than the few limitations, Riderwood was the perfect venue for our wedding.

The venue is the perfect site if you want to make sure your guest do not get lost on the way to the reception. Riderwood has a lovely chapel and a separate facility on the property for the reception. They also provide shuttle buses so that guest will not have to walk from the chapel to the reception location, this came in handy especially for some of our mature guest who normally would use canes to get around.

We looked all over to find a chapel/church/temple that would accommodate our interfaith wedding. An individual at one of the churches we inquired about told us to give Riderwood a call. Riderwood is a 65 plus community with a very large beautiful chapel. They didn't put restrictions on our interfaith wedding and happily accommodated us. We were able to bring our own Rabbi and Reverend and the ceremony was perfect! Scarlette was on hand to answers all my questions and she was wonderful to work with. If you are looking for a wonderful place to get married, I would most certainly recommend Riderwood Chapel!
