  • The Riverview at Occoquan was my absolute number 1 choice for our wedding venue. The floor to ceiling windows and the open concept layout was the perfect space for what our wedding planner and I envisioned. The Coordinators (Cori, Fern, and Brooke) were always so responsive. When the government stay-at-home mandate was put in place and all large gatherings were postponed the staff immediately reached out to let us know what our options were and they were very flexible with cancellations and rescheduling. The catering services provided by Great Blue Heron was also very impressive. Our guests certainly enjoyed their meals. The ONLY downfall of the venue is the uneven/patchy grass in the outdoor ceremony space.

  • Everyone we met at the venue was absolutely AMAZING!! Their communication was awesome and they were always so quick to respond to any questions we had. Working with them was just such a delight and I believe the staff really enjoys what they do. They took such great care of us on our wedding day and they were so flexible especially because we had to move the ceremony indoors about an hour before the guests arrived. They recommended vendors where we needed them too and they were just so helpful with everything. Our wedding day was absolutely perfect and exactly what we envisioned! And they’re very dog friendly which is great because we had our pup in our wedding and he was able to stay on premises the whole day (and get all the belly rubs and treats he could ask for from the staff).

  • When we were doing the venue hunting for our wedding, we fell in love with the venue although we had initially considered a winery wedding. The initial person who gave us a walk-in tour was not as well-trained or professional (We didn't see her or interact with her after the initial walk-in tour, so she would have been a part-time or temporary worker), but the rest of the staff once we decided to consider the River View as our wedding venue was a great team, not only friendly and responsive, but also professional (even after the wedding was over... being very helpful with the lost and found items and communicating about additional queries)! The venue looked really nice in the pictures, but wow... a simple walk-in visit was all we needed and we did not need to think twice after looking at the beautiful and modern building not to mention the amazing views that it has which gave us the option of an outdoor wedding. Like many other couples who might have had to or are still planning... Read more

  • I got married here in February of 2020, and I am so glad I chose this venue! Their team answered my questions promptly whenever I asked. I had tons of access to the venue during the planning process, and there were a million great places for photo ops. The day of my wedding went perfectly, and I felt very well attended by the whole staff.

  • We couldn't have imagined our reception anywhere else. It was so beautiful and refined, and was even better than my wedding dreams. The girls were a pleasure to work with, they heard what we were saying and brought our vision to life, special mentions to Cori and Fernanda. They set up your decor and break it down for you, help you with your linen rentals, and SO much more. We live near the venue and definitely popped in unannounced and they still made time to work with us and answer any questions we may have had. They were so flexible and truly made our experience flawless. Thank you for our dream reception!

  • Shortly after getting engaged, one of my mom’s friends recommended that we check out The River View and I am SO glad we did! It was the first place we looked at and we stopped there. The venue itself is beyond gorgeous and right on the water. They work with a specific catering company and the food was amazing (I wish I’d had more time to eat during the wedding)! I worked mostly with Cori and she was on top of everything from the moment I reserved the date. The walkthrough was a breeze, thanks to her organization and planning, and she had great suggestions! She clearly knows her way around a wedding and the day-of turned out PERFECTLY. I seriously did not have to worry about a thing. Our pictures turned out amazingly, there are so many good spots for gorgeous photographs around the property. Highly recommend The River View for any big events in the future!!!

  • From the moment we saw it during our venue search to the day of our wedding, we knew that The River View was the best choice we made for our wedding! They were incredibly responsive, thoughtful, and their work was beautiful! They were so accommodating working with us as out-of-towners and answering all of our questions from afar. Our friends and family also kept sharing with us that they enjoyed the food and drinks, and that this was the most beautiful wedding venue they had ever been to. It also really helped that the grand space does not need many decorations as the architecture of the building and the views of the river are lovely. We really appreciate all of their support and highly recommend them to everyone!

  • We had our wedding at The River View on 9/28/19 and were so delighted with our experience. From the moment we toured and selected this venue, it has been a pleasure to work with Cori and the team at River View, including Liz and the Great Blue Heron catering staff. Our day went off without a hitch thanks to all the hard-working pros at the venue. The photos are stunning thanks to this gorgeous location and we got so many compliments from our guests on the outdoor ceremony and the reception, it is a truly unique space. Thank you all so much for making our day so special.

  • My husband and I got married here on 09/06/2019. We had an AMAZING experience! The staff, particularly Cori and Liz, were extremely helpful, responsive, and worked with us throughout the whole process. They went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. The venue was STUNNING! We had our ceremony outside with a gorgeous view of the river. The reception area inside is extremely spacious and has plenty of natural lighting with all of the windows. Great Blue Heron is their caterer and the food was outstanding. We received so many compliments from our guests about the venue, staff, and food. I had the wedding of my dreams thanks to The River View at Occoquan! I couldn’t recommend this place enough. Thank you for everything!

  • This review is long overdue! Our wedding planner had gone to the River View's grand opening in July of 2018 and thought of us. She was on the money because this was the PERFECT venue! Cori and her team are extremely responsive, detail-oriented, and transparent. They made the whole process from touring the venue to the day of the wedding very easy and smooth. Great Blue Heron catering is responsible for the food and drinks so that was one less vendor to worry about (they came recommended by a friend who used them at another NOVA parks site, and despite agreeing to use them before tasting the food, you still get a HUGE tasting of pretty much everything on their menu to make your own selections---come hungry!) The River View is absolutely gorgeous. The pictures look amazing, but really don't do it justice. It was one of the aspects of our wedding guests kept complimenting us on over and over again. The outdoor space is just as beautiful as the indoor architecture, so much so that my fianc... Read more

  • We took a chance on the River View and booked it when it was still a floor plan and muddy outside and we are so happy that we snagged a spot at the River View before it booked up quickly.   We cannot say enough about this venue!!!  The space is absolutely stunning, both inside and outside.  We had our wedding there in early August 2019 and it was an absolute delight.  Cori is super(!!!) professional and responsive to all email correspondence and was always available by phone as well.  Liz of the GBHC (caterers) was also very responsive to our many changes/ updates to our requests.  All of our guests raved about the gorgeous venue and it was an experience to remember.  This is sure to be a hot spot for weddings and other celebrations for YEARS to come.

  • We had our wedding at The River View on June 14th. It was beyond amazing! The venue is absolutely gorgeous and the coordinators are awesome! During the whole wedding process, Cori was in constant contact with me, answering all of my many questions. The day went off without a hitch and all of the guests loved the venue too! I would highly recommend this venue

  • I love the team at The River View! Cori is a delight, and even day of always available to answer questions and help make your dream a reality. You truly get there and are able just focus on the day and leave everything else to them. They even have you go over a rainy day plan 2 months in advance! I never once worried I wouldn't be taken care of. I strongly recommend people consider using this venue for whatever event they're planning.

  • We had the reception for our wedding at the River View on Saturday, May 11 - the venue is absolutely stunning and Cori was truly a star. From the first moment we met her through the day of the event, Cori was super responsive and flexible to our needs. She made coordinating a large, Indian wedding with lots of Western elements easy and was a great point person for our day of wedding planner too. The venue has so many beautiful features already built in, we were able to do simple decor and the venue spoke for itself. The River View was also flexible for us to bring in an external Indian caterer that we wanted to work with and they worked well to bring all of the elements together on the day of. I couldn't recommend River View more highly, they were truly the best!

    Nira, you're too kind! I'm glad that we could help bring your stunning day together for you and Aditya. Cheers to a wonderful marriage!
