We Couldn’t Have Imagined A More Perfect Venue

We couldn’t have imagined a more perfect venue for our special day. Cindi, Kris and her event staff were so accommodating and went above and beyond! The compliments on the food and aesthetics of venue itself made us whole heartedly know we made the very best decision in choosing the Riverhouse for our wedding ceremony and reception. Thank you for helping create our happily ever after!!

We Were Absolutely Blown Away By The Overall Experience

Our reception was at Riverhouse on November 12th and we were absolutely blown away by the overall experience. The venue itself was exactly what we were looking – it has a rustic yet romantic vibe and the view on the river is incredible. The floor layout was completely different from any other wedding venue we had seen. All of the seats are around the dance floor which gave all of our guests a clear view to all of the exciting events on the dance floor. 

The food was AMAZING (bacon wrapped filet, cheesy potatoes, kicken shrimp… I could keep going!) We received tons of great feedback on the entire experience. 

The event staff were an absolute joy to work with. Kris VanDerNoord, the Events Manager was with us every step of the way with amazing ideas and tips about decor layout and design, ways to save and was always on top of everything! She was always quick to respond to my (many) questions and always made time to meet around our busy schedules. Cindy, the wedding coordinator was awesome and helped get everything together day of. 

Overall, I would HIGHLY recommend any event at the Riverhouse. The team did a flawless job at helping us plan one of the happiest days of our lives!

We had a wonderful time here for our wedding reception

We had a wonderful time here for our wedding reception on the water! The views were spectacular; the food was amazing; the staff was friendly; courteous and on top of everything throughout the evening; the venue was simply incredible. Many of our guests have told us how much fun they had and what a great party it was. Unquestionably, a large part of that is due to the staff of the Riverhouse making sure everything went seamlessly throughout the evening. Thank you Kristin, Shannon and crew for helping to make it an evening to remember!

We take with us wonderful memories of our wedding day

The beautiful view of the Manatee River from the Eagles Nest and Riverfront Room, is what had drawn us to picking Riverhouse, as a venue for our wedding. Cindy and Kris were great to work with.
 
From our ceremony to our reception, it all went smoothly. Our guests enjoyed themselves greatly and also complimented the delicious food. We are very satisfied on how it all went. We take with us wonderful memories of our wedding day.
