Located in the picturesque Weatogue area of Simsbury, Connecticut, The Riverview captures the beauty of rural Connecticut while bringing glamour and elegance to your wedding day.

Built in 2008 to exacting standards, this attention to detail is evident in every aspect of The Riverview. From the lobby through to our Grand Ballroom, your guests will be dazzled by the building’s crystal chandeliers, floor-to-ceiling windows, cathedral ceilings, and polished granite dance floor. Outside, guests can enjoy our waterfront setting on the Farmington River from under two completely private covered patios (ideal for wedding ceremonies), and wander the fully landscaped grounds and gazebo.

Modern, but with numerous classical architectural elements, The Riverview captures the best of all worlds to create the perfect stage for your perfect day.

This venue was absolutely fantastic! We booked just over one year out and they handled our questions like our wedding was the next weekend. They kept in contact throughout the year and were very kind and courteous. We are a same sex couple our coordinator, Chelsea, created a HANDMADE "Groom's Suite" sign to cover the "Bridal Suite" Sign. Extremely flexible, accommodating, thoughtful. Food was incredible. Great bartenders and attendants. All of our guests raved about the food, the layout, and the ultimate experience. My partner and I cannot say how pleased we are with the staff who helped us prepare and keep us calm leading up to and including wedding day. They were by our side the whole time. They made it easy and simple!

We had our New Year's Eve wedding here and it exceeded our expectations in every way! It was beautiful, the staff was so nice and attentive, they were super accommodating and really made sure everything was executed perfectly! I also cannot say enough great things about Chelsea our coordinator. I couldn't have asked for anyone better, she responded quickly to all my crazy questions and changes, made sure everything went smoothly before and during our reception. She made everything 1000x easier. Our guests were amazed at how great everything was and we are so happy we chose this venue!

My husband and I were married at The Riverview on 11/4/16. We ended up at this venue after a "it could never happen to us" event. Our original venue had a fire and we could no longer have our wedding there (we only had 6 months to change locations!) After visiting another venue in the area I quickly emailed The Riverview to see if by chance we could go right over and check it out - as we were pulling in their manager Stephanie emailed me back that it was a perfect time and to come right in! My now husband, mother, sister, and I fell in love immediately. It's gorgeous inside and out and every single member of the staff was courteous and kind. We signed our contract on the spot and had a tremendous sigh of relief that we were now back in business for getting married in November.

Our event coordinator Jodie was wonderful - she answered all my questions almost immediately and always put my mind at ease.

The day of the wedding went so smoothly it was incredible. We arrived around 4pm for our 6pm wedding so we could take pictures and do a first look. We got to use both bridal suites so my husband and I could hide from each other while we were getting read. The food from what I heard from our guests was absolutely amazing. Unfortunately with our emotions running wild my husband and I only tried some of it but what we did try we loved. I even had a guy from work take a picture of his plate to send to his daughter to brag about how good the food was! And speaking of food they were able to use our BBQ menu from our previous location - we were all happy campers! The cake was amazing, we had funfetti - which is SUCH an awesome option as it is my personal favorite.

Our "attendants" for the night were beyond helpful bustling my dress and were always there if you needed them, I didn't need their help all that much but they always checked in to see if I needed anything.

The entire night (from my point of view) ran seamlessly perfect!

The Riverview was the perfect location! The food was amazing, the staff was there to make our day perfect, the setting was incredible, and our wedding day was absolutely perfect! We worked with Chelsea who was terrific! Prompt, professional, calm, and collected...everything you would want from the person who was managing one of the most important days of your life. We had he East Side ballroom and the view was incredible in September. I also loved that there is a tent up a no extra charge because it gave me piece of mind that even if it rained I would still get my outdoor wedding.

Also, worth every penny to not have to worry about hiring a caterer or wedding planner or finding somewhere to buy a cake. The all in one gave me great piece of mind. Overall, a fantastic experience that I would recommend to anyone!

We had an amazing experience and one we will cherish always. We appreciate Jodie's assistance during the rehearsal, ceremony, and reception. Her help allowed our night to run smoothly. It truly took a lot of stress off our shoulders and we can not stress enough how much that means to us. We couldn’t be happier with the Riverview and Jodie's contribution to our special occasion.

As soon as we met with Maureen to tour the Riverview, we knew we had found someplace special. We immediately felt at home, and could tell the staff was accommodating and attentive. This was definitely true on the day of our wedding, and everything went smoothly. Not only did my husband and I have an amazing time, but all of our guests commented on various aspects of the venue, including the dinner, cake, venue itself, and the gelato station that we had. I would highly recommend the Riverview if you are looking for a wedding venue that is professional, accommodating, and can expertly execute a flawless wedding!

We got married at the Riverview July 17 2016 and let me tell you ...it was AMAZING!Everything was literally perfect from beginning to end. This venue was the first we saw and the last. As soon as we started walking through, we knew ..this was the place. Maureen was absolutely awesome!! No words can describe her genuine love for her job, she was so knowledgeable and explained Everything to a T, any and all questions we had, she was on top of it all. Both her and the venue itself won us over. We knew the minute we left our initial meeting we were going to be in great hands, and were we ever.
Our coordinator Chelsea, well..lets just say there's no better word than perfect !!! We insanely fell in love with her from our first meeting and knew that she was going to do Everybting in her power to make our wedding day so special, and she surpassed all of our expectations and more. Her personality says it all, she's so outgoing and hilarious, so so genuinely nice and knows the Riverview in and out. All of our questions were answered throughout the whole process , (and I definitely emailed her a little too much with questions here and there) and she was always a so curteous and got back to us right away !!
On the day of our wedding we didn't have to worry about a single thing!! We needed a drink ? There it was before we even asked for it, some more h'ourderves , there they were ! the food was absolutely delicious!! And don't get me started on the cake.people were drooling over it!! (Red velvet) The drinks were flowing and and the bartenders were awesome! The Riverview made us feel like a king and queen and we couldn't have asked for anything else, the night was as perfect as we imagined it would be and MORE! Our families were just in awe of the entire night and their staff. There were a few last minute changes to a few meals and the wait staff didn't hesitate they were so quick to accommodate people. We want to thank you so much for making our night so magical!!!
