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.

We had both our ceremony and reception at The Riverview and it was absolutely perfect! The coordinators and bridal attendants are there to make your day as smooth and enjoyable as possible. Everyone is friendly, quick to answer questions, and the venue itself is beautiful. Also, the food is delicious and the bartender was awesome! I would highly recommend The Riverview to anyone who is looking for a wedding venue! We couldn't have asked for a better wedding day!

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!!!

My husband and I got married at The Riverview on June 25, 2016. They were an absolute pleasure to work with from the moment we first met them for our initial tour, to the moment we walked out after our wedding. Chelsea Davis was our Event Manager and she is the best! She is incredibly responsive, supportive, and professional. She takes time to get to know the couples for each wedding she's managing, and listens to your ideas and helps them become realized. She was there for us anytime we needed her and even helped our officiant during rehearsal to make sure everyone knew where to be and what they should do. At the end of our wedding Chelsea and the staff had everything packed up for us and ready to go. On the day of our wedding we never had to think about what we should be doing next, or worrying about decorations...Chelsea and the amazing staff at The Riverview had everything under control. The atmosphere is amazing, the staff is incredible, and the food is great! Our guests raved about the candy bar table and the pretzels that were served at the end. The Riverview exceeded our expectations and gave us the most memorable wedding we could have asked for!

The Riverview was one of the first venues we looked at for our wedding and we just couldn't say no. It is beautiful both inside and out. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. They were helpful and there for us every step of the way. As much as I stopped in or called they greeted me with a smile and friendly hello each and every time. They took care of everything on the special day. They helped me with my dress, kept the bridal suite stocked with food and drinks, and kept everyone calm, cool, and collected. They did an amazing job!! We had so many compliments on the food, cake, and just how beautiful everything was, thanks to the Riverview!!! My coordinator for the day was Jodie. She was so sweet and kind and made everything perfect!!! The staff set everything up and took everything down. They packed up all my extras of everything (my gifts, my cake, etc.) and helped us bring it to the car. I had no worries the whole day. They did an amazing job. We received a great package for a great price. My husband and I were so happy (and so we our guests)!!! I would highly recommend them for your wedding!!!!

We can't say enough great things about the Riverview & their staff. The entire process from our first tour of the venue down to the clean up crew were absolutely incredible. The venue is beautiful and well kept and the staff go above and beyond the call to action to make sure you are happy and that everything is running smoothly.

Chelsea was our coordinator at the venue and she made the process fun and easy. And our guests are still talking about the incredible food and the portions that they received.

If you are looking to wow your guests, this is the location to book! We highly recommend them to any couples that are looking for a venue.

I can only rave about the Riverview as a wonderful place to have a wedding. Our daughter's wedding was wonderful, in large part due to the professional, reliable, friendly, and seamless way that the Riverview staff helped pull off the event.

From Maureen Huntley, the general manager, to Jodie Catalano, our wedding coordinator, to the whole staff who set up and catered the event, this is a class act.

Every question was answered promptly. Last-minute needs to bring the wedding indoors were met beautifully. All the hard work they did appeared effortless and unobtrusive.

The food was excellent, the service, ditto, and the staff were amazingly helpful in helping us pack up our wedding-related items at the closing of the day. Kudos, and many thanks, to the Riverview. We will recommend them to everyone.
