We could not have chosen a more perfect venue for our daughter's wedding ceremony & reception!!! From the very first meeting with Elissa, to the very last detail of the ceremony & reception, this whole experience was the best we could have ever imagined! Elissa is so professional, easy to work with, and has fantastic ideas about how to pull everything together to make sure the day is perfect for everybody.

I can't forget to mention what great staff Elissa has working with her (Rachel, Audrey, Nick...plus a couple other names that I can't remember...sorry), as they were all so attentive to our needs & made this such a great experience that we will never forget!!

Elisa,
You and your staff did an AWESOME job with my son's wedding. It all went off without a hitch. It was organized and handled with the utmost professionalism. I don't think I have ever enjoyed myself at any other wedding and reception as much as I did this one. Everyone seemed to have a great time and had nothing but great comments about how it all went. I am still hearing about how much fun everyone had. You guys are truly wonderful people and made everyone feel like family.
Thank you very much and if you ever need a recommendation, please do not hesitate to have whomever call me.

Thanks again,
Martin Dietz

My twin sister was married at this beautiful venue last month, and I must say it was a gorgeous wedding that went off without a hitch! I am in the wedding industry, and have been involved in the coordination of 50+ weddings, so needless to say I was very nervous about handing the reigns over to Elissa, the on-site wedding coordinator. She was involved with my sister and her fiance's wedding planning from the moment they found River Ridge Golf Club. She was a great help with the wedding planning, layout, timeline, and logistics as she has worked for the venue for many years. There was a slight issue with the linens, and she took care of it without a problem, going out of her way to contact the other vendor on behalf of the bride and groom. She was always available to reach if anyone had any questions, and was extremely flexible with us! On the day of the wedding she coordinated the day-of timeline (ceremony processional, cocktail hour, introductions, special dances, cake cutting, etc.). I am so glad and grateful that I was able to relax and enjoy my sister's wedding, while Elissa took care of all the details and wedding coordination. Thanks Elissa!

Being in the wedding industry, and having worked for a wedding venue myself (along with researching most venues in the state), I can say without a doubt that this is one of the most flexible, affordable, and accommodating venues available in North Carolina. My sister was able to bring her own liquor to be served and had the venue's bartenders serve the venue-provided beer and wine, charged by consumption. Also, we were able to arrive very early in the morning to start hair and makeup (9:00am for a 5:30pm wedding). We had ample space in the bridal suite which overlooks the ceremony site and is very close to the reception pavilion. My sister and her fiance were also not forced to stick to a certain 'approved' vendor list (though she does offer one for guidance!). This was truly the perfect venue for my sister's wedding!

As the father of the bride I could not have asked for a smoother wedding reception. All the details discussed and planned prior to the event were executed to perfection. I would highly recommend this venue for a wedding reception as Elissa and her staff were professional, attentive and courteous to all the guests and pulled off all the details, exceeding my expectations.

I just got married on 4.12.14, and I must say that I had my DREAM COME TRUE wedding at River Ridge Golf Club. I went to over 20 venues in Raleigh, NC and nothing was feeling "right"... when I walked up to RRGC and met Elissa, I knew instantly that it was the absolute perfect place. Elissa is so friendly and always so excited and enthusiastic when you have questions or suggestions for the wedding. She is super easy to get in contact with for anything you need--I probably asked her 10 questions a week and she was always happy to answer them.

One of the best things about RRGC is that you can completely personalize your wedding. They have the venue and chairs and tables... but you bring in everything else... I got to CUSTOMIZE my rentals, DJ, floral, and bring my own liquor which saved us a ton of money!! This gives you freedom to look around and find exactly what you want rather than being stuck with only one or two florists to choose from. I had fun exploring everyone in the raleigh area in the wedding business and I learned a lot.

The clubhouse and outdoor terrace are breathtakinggggg, well maintained, and a unique venue that my guests are still raving about. You have to see it for yourself. It can be dazzled up to be very formal, or a more casual elegant feel like we went for. We had the sunset on one side while guests ate dinner and then the moon came up on the other side as the dancing got started--absolutely perfect.

If Mother Nature doesn't cooperate... there is always the inside clubhouse or they can pull down the custom made clear liners/walls to enclose the space but still make it feel indoor/outdoor.

I never had a single worry about my day being flawlessly pulled off with Elissa behind the scenes. Perfect location, perfect event coordinator, perfect everything. I wish I could relive the day over and over!!!! THANK you!!!!

My favorite thing was that I was able to have any vendor I wanted, the Golf Course had recommendations, however, I was free to choose whomever my heart desired.

Our daughter's wedding held at River Ridge Golf Club was planned long-distance. Elissa and her staff could not have been more helpful and accommodating. They helped us with every detail and removed the worries that generally trouble first time wedding hosts. The facility is really pleasant and offers a number of ways to present a truly lovely event. We would recommend River Ridge and its personnel without hesitation.

I am so glad that we chose River Ridge. It was the prefect happy-medium for my husband and I and our differing styles. Elissa was fabulous throughout the whole process. She was quick to respond to questions and always assured us that they would take care of everything, which they did. We ended up having to plan the wedding remotely, so it was important that we felt comfortable in the hands of our vendors, and we had no worries about that with RR. The location is about 20 minutes from most of the nice Raleigh hotels, which was not a problem for us at all. We had lots of guests from out of state, so we stayed at and used the Hilton North Raleigh as our home-base, and that was just close enough to the venue to work perfectly for us. Catherine, Elissa's assistant, did a fabulous job on the day of our wedding and rehearsal (Elissa had a prior family engagement and Catherine stepped in flawlessly). She took charge of the events of both days and made sure that everything went smoothly. They moved chairs for us, they tended bar, they set up the reception and ceremony space, they checked in on the wedding party all day to make sure we were comfortable and taken care of. RR provides beer and wine of your choosing, but if you want liquor, you have to get a license and bring it in yourself. Getting the license was not a big deal. I have no complaints!

We ended up having to plan the wedding remotely, so it was important that we felt comfortable in the hands of our vendors, and we had no worries about that with RR. The location is about 20 minutes from most of the nice Raleigh hotels, which was not a problem for us at all. We had lots of guests from out of state, so we stayed at and used the Hilton North Raleigh as our home-base, and that was just close enough to the venue to work perfectly for us. Catherine, Elissa's assistant, did a fabulous job on the day of our wedding and rehearsal (Elissa had a prior family engagement and Catherine stepped in flawlessly). She took charge of the events of both days and made sure that everything went smoothly. They moved chairs for us, they tended bar, they set up the reception and ceremony space, they checked in on the wedding party all day to make sure we were comfortable and taken care of. RR provides beer and wine of your choosing, but if you want liquor, you have to get a license and bring it in yourself. Getting the license was not a big deal. I have no complaints! Read less

Elissa was absolutely wonderful to work with! RRGC was the first and last stop for my husband and I when we were venue shopping because we knew this was the perfect place and Elissa made evertyhing SO easy! She was always there to answer any and all of my questions (no matter how crazy they were) with an upbeat attitude. We had to reschedule our meetings a few times, but she was always willing to go the extra effort to make up for it and was so nice about everything. She knew I was a stressed bride due to ALL of our plans for the wedding/reception that had to change the WEEK OF the wedding due to the weather, so she told me to "just show up" on your wedding day, and let me take care of the rest! Literally, that's all I did. I tried to save cost on a lot of things, so all the flowers and linens were drop off only...Elissa had her staff set up EVERYTHING for us and even let us come the night before the wedding to set up our own decorations for the reception. She eased my worries and handled everything for us with no questions asked. She took charge, and everything turned out wonderfully! My husband and I couldn't have been happier! We recommend Elissa at River Ridge to everyone! And you can't beat the price and the allowing of ANY VENDOR of your choice at RRGC. It was amazing!

My wife and I couldn't have dreamed of a better wedding at River Ridge Golf Club. Everything went smoothly, without a hitch, and Elissa is always on the ball from the initial contact all the way through clean up after the event. Elissa helped us immensely getting ready for and on our big day, and was totally flexible to any requests we had. Everything was prepared, on time, and professionally done. Thank you to River Ridge Golf Club, and especially Elissa for making our day perfect!

She was able to create my vision on the morning of since our ceremony was off site and I wouldn't be able to set up the tables myself. She also executed the night beautifully and handled my stress so I wouldn't have to! I am very happy with Elissa and River Ridge!

It was fantastic to have someone around for about a whole year who knew what they were doing and could walk us through what we needed and gave suggestions when asked of vendors to use. We could always send an email with questions and knew we would get a response. I sometimes thought those people must live at the country club. We especially liked the fact that the venue was ours only for the reception night and all day wedding day. We could decorate, make last minute changes, and not have to be hurried to get out because it was someone elses turn. People were there to help us every step of the way It turned out to be a perfect day!

I had the best wedding experience possible thanks to River Ridge! What sold me from the start is the flexibility you have in planning your wedding. They can truly accommodate any budget by letting you choose all of your own vendors, including catering. The only thing you must buy through them is beer/wine, and it is very reasonably priced. The rental fee includes your rehearsal as well as the services of the amazing wedding director, Elissa. She is great at recommending vendors and is easy to reach to ask questions. Further, she meets with you beforehand to go over every little detail of your wedding. I did not stress at all about set up thanks to her. I was able to drop off all of my decorations/centerpieces the night of my rehearsal and when I arrived the next day, her staff had set up everything just as we had discussed. During the ceremony, Elissa directs your bridal party on the little details such as when they need to start walking and was accessible throughout the entire night.
All of our guests commented on how beautiful the venue was. The clubhouse is very southern plantation-esqe, and the green fields behind are perfect for the ceremony. You also get golf carts day of to let you take photos all over! The reception is in the pavilion beside the clubhouse. We did opt to rent a tent to protect the non-covered section, which I would highly recommend. Again, River Ridge coordinates all of these details of set up and return for that. We had approximately 100 guests at our wedding and that left a lot of extra room for dancing. All of the tables fit 10 people and I believe they provide chairs for up to 150. We used the same chairs for the ceremony and reception and the staff took care of moving and set up.
Overall, if you want a beautiful wedding location that will make your day as easy as possible and is completely customizable, I 100% recommend River Ridge!

River Ridge is a fantastic place to get married! My now wife and I had a great experience from the initial consultation through our wedding. The wedding coordinator, Elissa, was easy to work with and always available when we had a question. All of the staff were very professional and made our special day that much better. The flexibility we had to make the wedding “ours” was very nice because we felt like we were able to customize the wedding to our tastes. You can bring in whatever vendors you wish so you are not bound to one specific theme, and Elissa has plenty of recommendations for whatever style you are going for. Everyone at our wedding said the venue looked great and that everything seemed very well organized. I would recommend that anyone looking to get married to stop by and get a tour, you will be happy you did!

From my very first inquiry to River Ridge Golf Club I received prompt and friendly customer service from Elissa, the Sales and Events coordinator at the club. All of my questions were answered and I set up a time to visit the venue. I made up my mind on the spot that River Ridge was the right place for my daughter's wedding. The venue itself is beautiful with a large covered outdoor pavilion and gorgeous natural scenery. One of the best parts of using this venue is that you can bring in your own caterer and decorate in your own style. The only thing that is required to be purchased from the venue is the alcohol but I can tell you that after having an open bar for almost 5 hours, the prices are much lower than you would pay anywhere else. Before the wedding we were able to meet with Elissa to discuss the details and the flow of the day. She has so much experience with coordinating weddings that she was able to make the process so simple. She was at the rehearsal and present for the entire day of the wedding, from set-up to clean-up, and did such an amazing job making sure everything was done right. There is a lovely indoor area that is set up for the girls to get themselves ready and a room for the guys downstairs. We had the ceremony outside on the lawn and you don't even need any decorations because the natural beauty of the scenery is more than enough. The background makes for some amazing pictures. We had a cocktail hour and reception up on the pavilion and our guests were commenting on how beautiful the venue was. Elissa was on top of things the entire time and kept the flow of the day moving according to our schedule. I don't know what we would have done without her. Kathryn was our bartender and she was amazing as well. She treated all of our guests like family. I can not thank the River Ridge staff enough for making my daughter's wedding day so special and fun. I HIGHLY recommend River Ridge to anyone looking for a wedding venue in the Raleigh area!

From the beginning to the end, the River Ridge staff, and most especially Elissa, were helpful, attentive, responsive, and made the process stress-free.

When our new daughter-in-law descended the stairs during the bride's entrance, it was a breathtaking sight. The green of the golf course & trees plus the blue sky and white clouds made for a very serene setting as a background for the wedding ceremony.

Many of the guests commented this was the most perfect setting for a wedding ceremony & reception they had ever experienced. Everyone danced under the stars and had a very memorable evening.

Elissa seemed to be every place she was needed -- just when she was needed; overseeing every phase of the entire occasion. She helped with cutting the cake, collecting the gifts, clean up, and everything in between. Always with willingness and a SMILE!

We highly recommend River Ridge Golf Club for your wedding event!!

I just got Married August 11, 2012 @ River Ridge Golf Club. I absolutely loved it here. My wedding was so beautiful because the venue itself is so beautiful. It's a really pretty white plantation style clubhouse with the reception area built off to the side but still connected to the club house. We got married on the golf course and we faced the golf course which has a really beautiful tree line in the background. My husband’s favorite part was that I got to walk down the gorgeous staircase off the back of the clubhouse for my grand entrance. After the ceremony the guests walked up to the reception area which is outside and about 75% of it is covered. Tables and Dinner were set up under the covered area & the dance floor and DJ were set up on the uncovered part, we literally danced under the stars! River Ridge provides all the tables and chairs for the ceremony/reception so I only had to rent linens. Elissa is the Wedding Coordinator there and she did an awesome job! She coordinated my rehearsal and day of for me, which made things stress free. I literally dropped off all my decorations on Friday at the rehearsal and on Saturday her and her staff set the whole thing up without me even hardly having to direct them all. That made it so much easier for me. We had the whole clubhouse to ourselves the day of my wedding so my girls&I got ready in the upstairs room together and the boys had the downstairs. Once the ceremony started Elissa again organized the bridal party, and then directed everyone to the reception afterwards. She did so much for me that night, she cut my cake, she organized the speeches, dances, and all the important things so I had no worries, she literally made that day as easy as possible for me. I had such a great experience with River Ridge and I would HIGHLY recommend this venue to any Bride to be! You couldn't ask for a more beautiful place, a great coordinator, and a great background for some gorgeous pictures!

My husband Joshua and I had two months to put together a day I had been dreaming about for 21 years. At the time my husband was stationed in South Korea and I was living in Colorado so on top of only having two months to plan our dream wedding, we were also living far away from North Carolina and couldn't take the time to travel to NC to check out Venues. Elissa Shubert, the event coordinator at River Ridge Golf Course was very helpful with everything! River Ridge was accomedating and affordable. I could not have been happier with everything she did for us. They were already booked on the day of our wedding and Elissa was able to make it happen and give us plently of time to have our ceremony. When my husband and I arrived in North Carolina a few weeks before our wedding we met up with Elissa and she was very friendly and walked us through everything that would happen for the day of our wedding. River Ridge had EVERYTHING taken care of for us when our big day came around. It was absolutely perfect, the location, the people, everything was perfect. I would recommend River Ridge to anyone who wants a stress free easy wedding!!!

Elissa is very energetic and enthusiastic in helping work through the many little details involved in making the day special for the bride and groom, as well as their guests.

Our son and his bride used an out-of-town caterer, which made some of the last minute details a bit stressful. Elissa and her staff came through to make everything ready to go when the ceremony was over.

She was very willing to answer questions along the way, but often we would have to leave a voicemail and wait for her to return the call or respond to an e-mail.

Elissa is very energetic and enthusiastic in helping work through the many little details involved in making the day special for the bride and groom, as well as their guests.

Our son and his bride used an out-of-town caterer, which made some of the last minute details a bit stressful. Elissa and her staff came through to make everything ready to go when the ceremony was over.

She was very willing to answer questions along the way, but often we would have to leave a voicemail and wait for her to return the call or respond to an e-mail.

Elissa Shubert was wonderful!!! She was helpful, knowledgeable and very sweet. We had scheduled an outdoor ceremony and ended up with a chilly, rainy day. Elissa kept my daughter calm, and arranged a beautiful ceremony and reception. Her staff worked very hard to make our day perfect.

River Ridge is a wonderful place to have a wedding. Elissa was so enthusiastic and a huge help from start to finish. Several people commented on what a great location River Ridge was and how perfect it was for a wedding. We appreciated the flexibility of it being an outdoor venue but still covered as well as being able to bring in our own food. Kudos to Elissa and River Ridge for making our special day so wonderful.

The staff, especially Elissa, were EXTREMELY helpful and welcoming!! It honestly felt like we were planning our wedding with our own friends! I felt comfortable calling or emailing her with even the smallest of details or questions. Due to a threat of weather, we decided the wedding would be moved indoors the day before the wedding. Elissa was great about the change- offering ideas to help us and even allowing my bridesmaids and myself to take over her office and get ready in there!

The scenery of the golf course and the beautiful clubhouse look amazing in pictures. There seemed to be endless locations for photographs!

If you want a stress-free, amazing wedding venue make sure you check out River Ridge!! :)

River Ridge provided the setting for my daughter's wedding reception. The venue is absolutely beautiful overlooking the golf course. The space was remodeled in July, 2011 and is beautiful. We loved every thing about it. Elissa Schubert is the wedding planner there and is absolutely wonderful to work with. She was available for everything we needed and was present at our reception the entire time. She was very flexible in letting us drop our personal stuff off ahead of time and very flexible about letting us pick it up the day after the wedding, instead of that evening when we were so tired. She was happy to cover the tables for us and put out all of our centerpieces. It was nice not to have to worry about that the day of the wedding. We loved working with Elissa and the whole River Ridge Staff. We would highly recommend this venue.

Our wedding day was BEAUTIFUL and this was definitely the BEST place we could have chosen. :) THANK YOU, RIVER RIDGE!

My husband and I were very pleased with the river ridge golf club. We only had our reception there and it was beautiful. Elissa Schubert (Event Coordinator) was so sweet, helpful and very professional. She made sure that my event was exactly what I wanted. She was the first and last one there, she helped with setting up and cleaning. I was so impressed with the level of service she provided. Also, she made me feel as though I've known her for ever, i never felt uncomfortable, and never made me feel like we just rented this place for the day, it felt like it was my very own and our guest felt so comfortable. The view was gorgeous. We are considering having other future events here.

The River Ridge team made everything easy and enjoyable for us and our guests. We had inclement weather and the team took care of everything and made sure the ceremony and reception met my expectations. The team was responsive to requests and gave valuable input throughout the planning process. This is a great place to host your event and has a great inclement weather backup plan.

My only recommendation would be providing transportation for guests, we did not do this which required our guests to plan on their own. Our guests had an 11 mile commute which may be an issue for some brides. This was an afterthought on our part, nothing the the River Ridge team could have done differently.

River Ridge is certainly a beautiful place for a wedding, and our pictures are amazing and we received so many compliments on the location. Unfortunately, the level of professionalism at the course is lacking. Brides who expect a high level of service and intelligence may want to look elsewhere. The coordinator, Elissa, disappeared for 3 hours before our wedding started to go to a kid's birthday party, and in the end a lot of the set up things weren't done correctly because she wasn't around and didn't bother to ask me when she did return. Also, the boys who wiped off the chairs before the ceremony goofed off while doing it, slapping each other's backsides with the towels as our guests watched. I definitely heard about that the next day from our guests!! Elissa, with a lot of experience at the course, was really scatterbrained during the planning process, jumping from idea to idea without cohesiveness until I had to tell her "Let's review the day chronologically. That makes more sense." She wasn't really flexible with new ideas - she liked doing things the way other brides had done them. For example, I wanted to have a slightly different set up of chairs, but she said it would be too complicated to set up. Ultimately, it's because the boys at the club who do the work for her are not real bright and she wasn't around to oversee to make sure something new/more complicated was done correctly.

We got good value for our money as members (half off the rental) but if I was not a member, I wouldn't have paid full price. They acted like the did us a favor by letting us set up ahead of time, but it's because we paid to rent the place the night before for our rehearsal dinner too! Needless to say, we quit our membership the day after the wedding.

Pros: Can bring own vendors (which saves money), pretty and private location
Cons: Golfers around, lack of professionalism, DOC who's unreliable

River Ridge was by far the best venue for my outdoor wedding. The events coordniator at River Ridge is wonderful to work with! On the day of my wedding, the planner was by my side doing everything she could to make my day perfect! When my guest arrived at the location, they were all amazed at how perfect my outdoor setting was. My pictures turned out amazing with the various back drop settings (golf green, stair cases inside and out, columns, chairs, etc.) If you want your day to be beautiful and guests to have a great time, River Ridge is a great choice! Im so glad I found it!

We would encourage anyone who is thinking about having an outdoor wedding to meet with the wedding coordinator, Elissa Schubert at River Ridge Golf Club. She created the most amazing day that our family will cherish and remember for a lifetime.
From the very first meeting you could feel the warmth she offered along with her patience and expertise in the wedding planning area. Her industry knowledge far surpassed anyone that I had met with in regards to our wedding. We had the opportunity to sit and look at pictures of all the weddings she has facilitated over the last 4 years at River Ridge. She worked together with us to create a wedding that was unique to me and my personality. Making us feel comfortable where I’m sure that most people would have felt overwhelmed. She was always available for questions or meetings as we got closer to the big day.
Elissa suggested having all of the groom’s men golf together the day before the wedding, the morning of our rehearsal was a huge hit with everyone! The girls enjoyed decorating the plantation inside and out while the boys golfed.
Elissa gave us the opportunity to enjoy every aspect of our big day by taking charge of everything so that I didn’t have to worry about it. The whole weekend was a beautiful experience because of the River Ridge staff. From start to finish it was better than we could have ever dreamed of. The pictures had the most amazing background of the breathtaking golf course and plantation. I felt like a Princess making my entrance down the breathtaking stair case. As you looked around at the guests who attended our wedding as well as the wedding party, all you saw was smiling faces. The teamwork of River Ridge and Elissa gave us our dream wedding. WE THANK YOU! XOXOXO

River Ridge Country Club offered an amazing venue choice for both the ceremony and reception. Elissa does an amazing job at helping with all of the details and answering any questions that you might have. The scenery and setting were beautiful! We chose to have our wedding and reception at 4 in the afternoon and without a doubt, the sunset and view provided a beautiful site paired with the rolling hills with the golf course. Perfect for a bride who wants to be able to choose the details of what is going to go into her wedding.

I had my wedding there April 17th 2010. River Ridge made the entire experience perfect. If I did it all over again I will definitly choose River Ridge. We had a lot of out of town guests and had to switch our numbers around a few times. Every time I changed anything it was done promptly and without a fuss. Everyone was wonderful to work with. They also worked well with my outside vendors. All of my vendors said how easy it was to work with Elisa because she was able to accomidate what they needed. I hope you all enjoy your experience as much as we did!!

I had my wedding here in Oct. of 2009, it was a great location that was easy for everyone to find. I wanted an outdoor wedding with the security of knowing there was a place just in case it rained. Luckily it did not rain, but everyone at River Ridge was so helpful and knowledgable and ready to help reserve anything that was needed. I could not have asked for a better place to have my wedding. The Golf Course was a beautiful choice for the wedding and reception and so simple having both at one location.

River Ridge was the perfect place for our ceremony & reception! I knew I wanted to be outdoors, but wanted the peace of mind knowing that it wouldn't be ruined if weather was threatening & River Ridge had just that! We held our rehearsal, rehearsal dinner, ceremony & reception at River Ridge. Elissa, the coordinator there was such a great person to work with & listened to what we wanted and did all she could to make our day perfect. She even arranged to divert golfers because I wanted to have my ceremony on the back staircase. She made sure all vendors were coordinated & was present throughout the rehearsal & rehearsal dinner and did not leave the venue until the reception was over on Saturday. I was able to relax on my wedding day with my girls & family knowing that Elissa was making sure all was in place. She checked in throughout the day. We were able to use golf carts after the ceremony to take pictures out on the course. It was perfect!

We could not have picked a better place to have our reception. We were married in our church, but had the reception at River Ridge. The site was beautiful and the event coordinator did a fantastic job. She was able to work with the caterer and her staff, as well as our DJ and photographer. I would highly recommend using River Ridge for your wedding event. I also got to use the facility for my bridal portraits, and it was fabulous!!!

The scenery at this place is incredible and you get so much for the money that you spent - ceremony, reception, and a wedding coordinator for the day of. Elissa helps you with details along the way and her team at the golf club helps set up everything the day of so you can relax. Rain threatened our outdoor ceremony & reception but Elissa was unbelievable at helping us come up with several alternate plans. She was respectful of our decisions and ultimately helped us achieve what we wanted. After the ceremony, you can ride on the golf carts for pictures around the course. The sunset is magnificent! She also went out of her way to help us arrange other services that we needed. It's in a quiet location, yet still in Raleigh so vendors won't charge extra to deliver. I highly recommend this place!!

We picked the perfect venue for our ceremony and reception in River Ridge. The location is great and Elissa is amazing to work with. Elissa was responsive every step of the way and made everything seem easy. She was right there to reassure me that everything would be great and if anything came up unexpectedly, she was right there to suggest a solution. I would highly recommend River Ridge as a location, and Elissa as a fantastic person to work with!

The venue is beautiful, the event coordinator is wonderful to work with, and we saved even more money by River Ridge allowing us to use the caterer of our choice . I've already recommended this venue to several friends!

I chose River Ridge because it is absolutely beautiful! We had a gorgeous ceremony outside on the lawn, and then had our reception on the second floor outdoor pavilion. I was extremely happy with the facilities (except that the carpet inside hadn't been cleaned after a golf tournament...would have been upsetting if we had held everything inside), but I wasn't too pleased with the event coordinator. For one thing, she had another bride show up the day of my wedding to veiw the facilities. She blamed everything that went wrong on me (ie, she couldn't figure out how to hold down the isle runner (golf tees could have worked, eh?), and the flower vases kept blowing over in the wind. Instead of figuring out a way to make things work, she put them on the ground)... She also left after the ceremony, without telling me. There was no river ridge golf staff there to answer questions during the reception. Things could have been a disaster if my family and awesome caterer didn't take charge at that point. HOWEVER, I still recommend the golf club. Despite the awful event coordinator, the facilities were absolutely beautiful. I do advise, however, that you hire your own DOC, or have a friend be in charge. At least then you KNOW somebody is going to be there the entire wedding and make sure that things go right.
