  • While Riverside is beautiful and a one of a kind location, what is included in the price is just the grounds pretty much. Everything else you will have to rent, from lines to the arbor and guest book stand all the way to the large ice containers that they themselves own. There is not a kitchen just a tiny prep area and you do not even have a place to rinse your rented dishes. You can not set up the Friday before and they will not allow you to be there earlier then 10 am the day of, we asked and were told no. My husband did not like that the owner wore a maintenance shirt with his name on it while walking around during our event, he and I tend to agree thought that a nice polo and kahakis would have been better with the venues name on the shirt. Thirty nine hundred dollars is a pretty decent chunk of change and when you think about it most other places include their table linens, set up, and some centerpieces when you book with them. This amount is litteraly for the grounds and yo... Read more

    Riverside Receptions provides an exceptional venue for the price. Many other locations do provide additional items with their venue rental, however you need to use their food and beverages. We have our pricing structured this way to allow couples to bring in their own items possibly saving $$$. The shirts we have are white dress shirts with our name on them. From all our research Riverside is quite flexible in their hours and operations compared to the other venues. Please check out our venue for yourself, we have many other reviews as well. Anyone is welcome to choose another venue, however I don't think you will find one which compares to Riverside Receptions. I am shocked to see this review as I thought the couple and their family and friends where satisfied and happy with everything.Below is an e-mail I received from this bride. John, Thank you so much for everything! Our wedding was a huge hit and I cannot tell you how many people have raved about the location. Every time we run into someone that was there they tell us how beautiful everything was and how they had no idea something so magical existed so close to us. As you know Eric had not been there until the evening of the rehearsal. We had looked at the pictures on line and the ones that I took but they do not do your location justice, he too was blown away by the beauty Riverside holds. Thanks again so very much for everything. Dawn

  • Riverside Receptions is a beautiful outdoor venue. Our guests would not stop talking about this diamond in the rough. John was there every step of the way accommodating all of our needs. We loved getting a "sneak peek" of our wedding through facebook (the day after the event) and a video he sent by mail. John also went trash digging for us (as he did for the other review I read) for a few misplaced items. He found the six pence that was glued to my shoe on the grounds a few days after the event and mailed it to us. These are just a few examples of many how he went out of his way to make our day so memorable. We will be referring this venue to our friends and family. Thanks Riverside!!!

  • The owners of Riverside Receptions went above and beyond the call of duty. Their grounds are flawless and breathtaking. When our caterer accidentally threw away a component of our cakes that we had a deposit on, John dug through the trash and found it for us without being asked! They are extremely professional and friendly. They made our wedding reception absolutely amazing. To see pictures of our wedding go to married7409.weebly.com

  • What a pleasant surprise tucked away in Michigan Farm country. This venue has immaculate grounds and many varied areas to provide for a exceptional wedding experience. We enjoyed ourselves immensely as did everyone who we visited with about Riverside. We hope to come back soon, I would love to see either of my children married here.

  • I was married at Riverside Reception in September 2008 and was so thankful to the staff for all their hard work. Initially the wedding had to be moved under the pavilion due to rain but upon my arrival to the grounds to get ready the rain had slowed down tremendously. We decided to go ahead with the wedding outside and the staff quickly rearranged everything. The ceremony was beautiful and just as our last picture was snapped the rain started up again but the walls down and the rain hitting made for a romantic reception. I was so thankful that the staff was so accommodating despite the weather. If you are looking for a great location that is perfect for anyone on a budget I highly recommend Riverside Receptions. Being able to bring your own alcohol and food helps to keep costs down tremendously.

  • Riverside Receptions is not only a gorgeous place to get married, but the quality of service and the kindness of the owners is exceptional as well. We didn't have a single problem and each of the owners were extremely helpful. The grounds are breathtaking and exquisite. I would recommend Riverside Receptions to anyone wanting a beautiful outdoor wedding!

  • This was the most beautiful location for my wedding. The owners have created an atmosphere that I was able to fill with unique and meaningful memories. Most of our guests were born and raised in a big city and they still say this was the best wedding site they have ever attended.

  • I loved this place for these reasons:  1) Beauty: less money spent at the florist when the area is decorated for you! Flowers in all three seasons! I've been to many outdoor weddings but haven't seen any place quite so beautiful. The huge fish that jumped in the river during our ceremony was quite the fun memory! The beautiful decorated swing made for some really pretty couple pictures.   2) Convenience: didn't have to rent two places or travel between one and the other. Plus it's much more convenient than a do-it-all-yourself approach at some park, which can be a headache/nightmare. They have thought of everything and instead of mandating you use their food/drinks like a lot of places do you can choose! The setting worked great for our caterer, photographer, videographer, baker, florist, DJ and everyone else. 3) Pictures: With an outdoor wedding you get the most beautiful pictures ever! No "low lighting" concerns for photographing the ceremony like you might have indoors 4) No ... Read more

  • We just want to thank you guys so much for making our day beautiful and we were really impressed that you cared enough to take the time to take video shots of the whole event. We weren't expecting that and appreciate that you went out of your way for us. We heard nothing but wonderful comments about the grounds and how beautiful the place was and how smoothly everything was run. Thank you so much, we had a dream of having a beautiful outdoor wedding and you helped make it come true! We will definitely recommend you to others!
