Mousseau-St. Andrews Wedding

The following is an excerpt from a letter submitted to us by one of our guests in May, 2013:

Dear Carrie,

Amanda and Matt’s wedding reception turned out to be an occasion that will be remembered so fondly by all who attended and I am forever grateful to you for helping me make it such a wonderful party. Right from the beginning, your ideas and suggestions game me the incentive to really make the room and the evening personal and extra-special for the newlyweds. I really don’t thinking any other venue would have not only allowed us, but encouraged us to re-visit, to view pictures from previous parties to aid us in getting creative juices flowing and to inspire us to really make the room our own for the evening.

Moore Wedding Testimonial

The following is an unsolicited and unedited testimonial submitted to us by Ashley Moore, who held her reception with us on May 17, 2013. Posted with permission from Mrs. Moore:

We hosted our wedding reception for 140+ guests at The Riverhouse on Friday, May 17. I have to give a huge hats off Carrie and the entire staff for a truly incredible job.

My Riverhouse experience started when Mike, my now husband, and I popped in on a whim shortly after our engagement. Being from the Orlando area, and unfamiliar with the area, we decided to stop in based off of online reviews. It was a Sunday, and despite there not being a dedicated staff member assigned to the reception room that day, Kyle was kind enough to take a few minutes to show us the space. We immediately fell in love with the space- the exposed beams gave a sense of refined “rustic-ness”, the light fixtures and windows overlooking the water made it nautical, the shape of the space gave it originality, and the huge, picturesque windows (without heavy drapery overtaking the color scheme of the room) made us want to have our wedding there. Kyle handed us the information packet, and away we went.
