The Riverhouse is a gorgeous and very accomodating venue. The pricing is more than fair for what you get. I love that this venue is all-inclusive (catering, cake, linens, dinnerware, open bar, wedding day coordinators, and the option to have the ceremony at the same location)

The Riverhouse truly exceeded our expectations. Both our ceremony and reception were held on the property. We can't thank them enough for giving us an amazing wedding. The venue is perfect and is in a beautiful location with great views. The food is outstanding and many of our guests told us it was the best wedding food that they've ever had. Most of all, the staff was truly fantastic. We live in New Jersey and I was worried about planning a wedding out of state, however the Riverhouse made the planning process seamless and our wedding went off without a hitch. Hattie and Kelley were so helpful and thorough during the planning that I never had to worry about a thing. They were always quick to respond and made sure all our ideas and visions were part of our big day. We are also grateful to Mary and Michelle who were both accommodating to us and our parents the night of our wedding. We highly recommend the Riverhouse to all couples looking for a unique and exceptional venue. I wish we could re-live our wedding day there over and over again!

Where do I even being to explain how amazing the Riverhouse is! From my very first visit I knew that is where we were going to have our reception. The ballroom is stunning and you are the only wedding. After booking, Hattie and Kelley made the planning process very easy and were always there to answer any questions I had. The Riverhouse staff pays attention to every little detail. When we were at the final meeting before the wedding going over the food, my dad made a comment that he hates tomatoes. When my dad received his salad, his didn’t have any tomatoes. When I arrived after the ceremony, I went out onto the balcony to see the ballroom. They putting the final details together and the room was every more beautiful than I could have imagined. The balcony is also a great spot so your photographer can get a photo with all the guests at the wedding. I would recommend the Riverhouse to anyone planning a wedding. They exceeded all my expectations and made my wedding dreams come true!

Where do I even being to explain how amazing the Riverhouse is! From my very first visit I knew that is where we were going to have our reception. The ballroom is stunning and you are the only wedding. After booking, Hattie and Kelley made the planning process very easy and were always there to answer any questions I had. The Riverhouse staff pays attention to every little detail. When we were at the final meeting before the wedding going over the food, my dad made a comment that he hates tomatoes. When my dad received his salad, his didn’t have any tomatoes. When I arrived after the ceremony, I went out onto the balcony to see the ballroom. They putting the final details together and the room was every more beautiful than I could have imagined. The balcony is also a great spot so your photographer can get a photo with all the guests at the wedding. I would recommend the Riverhouse to anyone planning a wedding. They exceeded all my expectations and made my wedding dreams come true! Read less

The Riverhouse staff - planners, kitchen, servers, bartenders, attendant - each and everyone of them are truly amazing. We had the absolute best experience we ever could've hoped for when planning with the Riverhouse. Kelley and Hattie were so quick to respond to the smallest, simplest details which at the moment felt like such a big deal to me ( the bride). We began the planning process not knowing what kind of wedding we wanted, where we wanted it, etc. The Riverhouse was PERFECT. The food, the atmosphere, the planning process and the day were just perfect. I cannot thank Kelley, Hattie and Mary (our wedding day attendant) enough for all they did for us. Mary made our parents (never mind us) feel so special the day of the wedding, she was right there for even the littlest request. We cannot say enough good things about our experience, especially the food. There wasn't a guest there who left hungry. We chose the stations menu -- there's no other way to go :) If we could get married again, we wouldn't change a thing!!! I highly recommend the Riverhouse!

The Riverhouse was the only venue my husband and I looked at. Besides knowing several of the staff members personally, we knew this was the perfect venue for us. It eludes elegance, sophistication, and class with the stunning staircase, impeccable bridal suite, and beautiful ballroom. It also has a great indoor/outdoor atmosphere with the doors leading outside to overlook the CT river where we had our photos taken with the river/bridge, the Goodspeed Opera House, and the Gelston House beautifully in the background.

The venue can be beautiful, but if the food isn't good and the staff isn't helpful then your guests won't be impressed. At The Riverhouse you will NOT have to worry about either of these two things. The staff is on-point. Hattie and the rest of the Staff were amazing to work with. Mary was our day-of-coordinator and she went above and beyond to make sure our day was perfectly flawless. We also had somebody from the waitstaff that made sure my husband and I had everything we needed. From the morning when we were getting ready down to the last drink of the day. The service was superior.
I'm a big foodie, so our wedding food had to be good. Let me tell you, we still have guests raving about how delicious everything was (especially the scallops - those were AMAZING)! Our signature drink was also a huge hit (coconut mojito).

Overall, we had an amazing wedding at The Riverhouse. We can't thank the staff enough for everything they did to help make our day amazing!

My husband Derek and I got married at the Riverhouse in June of this past year. We couldn't be happier with our experience. The planning process with Kelley went so smoothly, and she is so kind and helpful. She puts your mind at ease that your whole wedding day will be perfect - and it was! Mary did an exceptional job the day of ensuring that everything went according to plan - and she is amazing! Every person we came across was so kind and professional. The location, food, people of this venue are wonderful - I highly recommend the Riverview! Thank you for the most beautiful wedding day.
