  • If you are considering the River View, I would highly recommend it.  We booked them in March 2019 for a May 2020 wedding.  Unfortunately, due to Covid, we postponed to May 2021 and then downsized our 200 person wedding to a 5 person elopement.  We had our ceremony in the 1608 room (the rain location for the outdoor site). All of the staff at the River View would be the examples in a dictionary definition of "professionalism".  They were organized, prepared and had all of the information, even when we were frazzled and unsure and couldn't remember what we had decided.  It rained on our wedding day and when we arrived there, everything was already set up according to the rain plan and still looked beautiful.  They were on top of everything, even steering away park visitors from the background during our photos and ceremony. While the whole world was figuring out the changes needed for the pandemic, the River View was clear and forthcoming with what the current regulations wer... Read more

  • Fantastic! The team at the River View was truly amazing at every step of the way. They were very communicative and helpful during the planning process; and made sure that I had nothing to worry about on the day of the event. The food from Great Blue Heron (their contracted catering team) was soooo good, all our guests had rave reviews! The bar tending team also was cranking out the most amazing drinks that left our guests speechless. It is a beautiful venue, in a great location, and they have a fantastic service team on top of it! I couldn’t have asked for anything better.

  • I can’t even begin to explain how much lucky my husband and I are to have found The River view or shall I say CORI & FERN!!! We found this venue at the last minute and they immediately catered to us and made sure that we had everything that we needed and answered all of my 1000 questions via email and phone. We are so grateful for them. Our wedding coordinators were super lazy and disappeared during our wedding day and CORI & FERN literally saved the day!! I am so thankful. If it wasn’t for Cori & Fern, my husband and I would have had to coordinate our own wedding. These ladies and this venue are the best! Cori & Fern helped with EVERYTHING!! From setting up, helping with my dress alllll night, following the timeline & making sure everyone was lined up and etc. I mean I should have hired them to be my coordinators 😫😫 they saved my wedding day!!! HIRE THIS VENUE! You won’t be disappointed!!! Oh!! & Rose, the bartender was Soooo much fun! Her drinks were amazing & she also as... Read more

  • Our wedding day would have not been the same if it weren't for The River View. It is one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. The HUGE open windows made the whole ceremony and reception so beautiful!!!! We worked with Cori and Fern and they were both so helpful and very responsive. Our wedding day was so magical at The River View! :)

  • My husband and I loved the River View the second we saw it. It’s in a beautiful location with lots of great spots for pictures. Cori and Fern we’re so great especially when the pandemic happened. They came up with a great plan for us and kept us updated. When the wedding was approaching, Cori and Fern answered all my questions super quickly which I appreciated. The day of our wedding the day, the venue looked beautiful and everyone loved it! If there was an issue or a question we had, we could go up to the coordinator and she would handle it. We didn’t have to think at all! The staff was friendly and were super safe (wearing masks and gloves). We couldn’t have been happier.

  • I threw more than a few temper tantrums towards my now husband insisting upon this venue and wow I’m so glad I did and only a little ashamed about it. This place is gorgeous at all times of the year. The building itself is such a nice modern vibe it’s a nice change from all the barns in this area! The windows are so gorgeous and the view of the river is perfect! I love all of our pics from this place!

  • 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!

    Thank you Bizu. We loved having you and we are happy to hear that your day was everything you wanted. Thank you choosing us for your special day!

  • 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.
