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.

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!

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.

If you are looking for a beautiful venue with amazing staff The Riverview is the place to go. The Riverview was the first venue that we had looked at and it blew the competitors out of the water, we kept comparing everything back to them! From the initial meeting, to menu planning, and final days up to the wedding the staff was excellent and made the process seamless. Chelsea was our event coordinator and she was AMAZING!! She was extremely quick to respond when we had questions and made the wedding day run seamlessly. We did the buffet option and the food was delicious, our cake was amazingly prepared onsite and our guests could not get over how amazing it looked. Our guests were amazed by the beauty of the venue and we keep hearing that they had an amazing time! Beautiful from the inside out The Riverview made our dreams come true!

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.

The Riverview was a wonderful place to have our wedding a few weeks ago! The venue itself is lovely--it's large and glamorous and has an extra-large dance floor, which we really appreciated since most of our friends and family love to dance. We were originally planning to have the ceremony in the outdoor tent, but had to move it inside due to rain, and we were glad that we still had a beautiful view, as the ballroom as a wall of windows overlooking the river.

The staff was very helpful, both beforehand and on the wedding day. Our contact, Jodie, made sure that all of our questions were answered quickly and all details were taken care of. During the wedding, one of the staff members regularly brought me water bottles, and the staff also helped us pack up everything at the end of the night. Everything went so smoothly--I could tell that there was a lot of work being put in behind the scenes to make sure that the day went by without a hitch.

The food was also delicious, including the cupcakes that we had instead of cake, and the mac n' cheese bar we had toward the end of the reception. (They have various options for late-night snacks when people are hungry from dancing, which is a great idea!)

I highly recommend the Riverview to anyone looking to get married in the Hartford area, especially if you are looking for a venue that does its own catering (which made the planning process so much simpler). It was a great experience and I really appreciate all the work they put in to make our wedding day special!

When my daughter and I found this place we were impressed by the beauty, location and size. We walked in and met Maureen and was blown away by her professionalism. We booked 2 years in advance and probably dropped by a dozen times during the 2 years (showing out of state family). Every time we stopped in, Maureen was always very welcoming and was fabulous! As time went on, we were assigned a wedding consultant, Caitlin, who was absolutely terrific. We had the perfect recipe for the best wedding ever - a great wedding consultant, a beautiful hall and a staff that cares about your needs. The wedding day was the most spectacular day ever and they did everything first class. The food was delicious, drinks kept coming, guests danced like they've never danced before!
We did have a guest who was highly allergic to several things and had to bring special food for him to eat. The staff made sure they knew who he was and that his food was not to touch any other foods. We did not worry the whole evening about him as they had everything taken care of.
As the Mother of the Bride, I was stressing out that everything would go perfect that day but there was no stress that day as they had everything under control!! My biggest upset was the day/night went too fast!! I would highly recommend this venue to everyone!!

The Riverview was above and beyond anything I could have imagined my wedding day would be. I first came in contact with the Riverview about 2 years ago at the Hartford Bridal Expo. We (my mom and I) were immediately impressed with the amount of information we received on the spot and how beautiful the pictures looked. A few weeks later we scheduled an appointment to take a tour of the venue. When we went to visit for the first time this is when we met Maureen. Maureen is the most kind and helpful person that you could ever meet. The second I went into the reception area, I knew that this was where I wanted my wedding to be and no other place could compare.

Over the next two years, Maureen was VERY patient with us and answered the many questions that we had. We took a lot of family to visit and along the way, Maureen met the entire family. As we got closer to the wedding, Caitlin was assigned to be our event coordinator the day of the wedding. Caitlin was amazing and was always very helpful throughout the last few months of planning.

The day of the wedding came and I was beyond excited to see all the detail we put into the wedding and how amazing it would look. My husband and I had the opportunity to take a walk around before anyone else and soak up how beautiful it was. From the second we walked in, there were people catering to us all throughout the night. While we were in the bridal suite, they brought us the specialty drinks and all the appetizers that were being served to our guests. We received so many compliments on how beautiful the venue was and what great service they provided. One of the biggest compliments was on the food. We opted for a raw bar which was a huge hit along with the espresso bar.

Overall, the Riverview is the best in class and gorgeous. I would highly recommend anyone having their wedding here!

The Riverview is a beautiful, simple elegance venue. From the beautiful lighting, to the scenic river it was truly breath taking.
