THE VENUE WAS TOTALLY
If you want to have the wedding of your dreams in a gorgeous, outdoor, country setting, with your reception in a beautiful indoor setting and work with the most accommodating people in the world, then River Road Chateau is the place for you. And there is more! We wanted 9 horses to be in the wedding! Not many beautiful places can accommodate horses in your wedding, but River Road Chateau went out of their way to accommodate our horses. The wedding meadow is tucked in a nook of the property down a short path, across a wooden bridge over a creek bed, and nestled in the trees. That beautiful pathway passes by gorgeous Italian gardens (in which you could choose to have your wedding) and, after you cross over the bridge, then leads you through double doors and down to the altar complete with wooden arch, crystal chandelier and, now, hitching posts off to the side, for those horses! On the other side of the wedding meadow is a beautiful, wide open pasture which made for amazing photographs with the wedding party, bride and groom all on horseback! Wait! There is more! Did I mention the fact that our groom and his family were from out of town and we needed accommodations for them close by? Not a problem for River Road Chateau! Right on the premises they have the most beautiful plantation style house newly remodeled and furnished to accommodate 15 guests with a living room and kitchen. It was so nice to be able to rent that lovely home instead of having to put everyone up in cold hotel rooms. The master suite is decorated in a beautiful silver/grey décor. It was so gorgeous we decided to use it for the bridal party to get ready in, instead of the beautiful bridal room that is available down in the reception hall. The reception hall also has a wonderful groom’s dressing area which our groom and his groomsmen hung out and dressed in. The Reception Hall also has beautiful chandeliers, gorgeous antique French entry doors, lots of side doors that can be slid open to reveal the two outdoor, covered patios your guests can over flow to in beautiful weather, a fabulous kitchen and bar area, and guest bath rooms. I really loved that part of the rental included glass water goblets and wine glasses and tables and chairs for 200 guests, among other details. Wait, there is more! Did I mention how amazing Lori, Krysti, Larry and the staff were? Absolutely incredible, from beginning to the very end. There wasn’t a moment that they were not on top of, making sure that my job was as smooth and easy as possible. They loved the horses and nothing about their needs intimidated them. We stretched everything to the limit but you would never have known that. The details of the day were turned over to them and I never had to worry about a thing because they took care of every detail. I was able to spend my time with my daughter and family while they made sure everything ran smoothly. They promised us the wedding of our daughter’s dreams, and they delivered! I can’t imagine having our wedding at any other venue! Thank you, Larry, Lori and Krysti!Sonya H
I don’t even know where to begin to describe how amazing Lori and Krysti are and how wonderful this venue is. Lori and Krysti both went above and beyond what we even expected. Everyone can tell they both truly love their job. The venue is absolutely beautiful but it’s the two of them that make it perfect. They made a stressful day more relaxing and made this special day for my daughter an everlasting memory.Debbie P
I cannot say enough wonderful things about this venue and the managers, Krysti and Lori. They went above and beyond to make our wedding practically seamless and as stress-free as possible. They were so quick to respond to every email and question I had, and all with the kindest attitude! Not only was this venue a decent price, it is absolutely stunning! They continue to make improvements to the grounds and each time they sent us an update, we were more and more impressed. When we had a last minute ceremony change to plan b indoors due to monsoon downpours, Lori was right there to make sure we felt at ease and happy with the indoor setup. It actually turned out more beautiful than I ever could have imagined and worked out perfectly. This was by far the easiest and BEST vendor decision we made for our wedding and we couldn’t be happier with how it all played out. Thank you SO MUCH to River Road Chateau for helping to make our wedding a truly magical experience that we will never forget!Andrea H

Thank you Krysti and your team for giving us a wedding that my husband, our children, our guests, and I will never forget.Melissa H
This venue is superb!! I can not think any other place where customer service and attention to detail reaches these levels. We visited several venues before choosing this one and there was simply no comparison! Krysti was extremely easy and very flexible to work with. She was there to see to every little detail and was right there to offer rides to those elderly members of the party who needed help. Almost hard to believe that people this nice still exist. Renting the ‘southern mansion’ next door for the night before and for the night after ensured that all the arrangements could be finalized on site, as well as give everyone in the wedding party time for R&R. The venue even brought us lovely breakfast with plenty to share. They did not have to do this, but they did. There are so many kindnesses shown to us that it would be too long a list to share!
This venue is just gorgeous and the staff focus to detail, kindness and helpfulness is incredible. Our highest recommendations for future brides. This place is a rare gem!!!
I got married at River Road Chateau a few weeks ago and, let me tell you, it was THE most magical and perfect day, ever. Krysti and Lori with RRC are absolutely INCREDIBLE and worked with us on every angle. I had a Cinderella dream to get married on horseback (with the whole bridal party horseback, too!) and they helped us make that happen. Their suggestions, ever-ready help and thoughtfulness are uncomparable! I would absolutely, hands down, very highly recommend RRC for your wedding! You will be so thankful you did because the property is not only absolutely stunning any time of year, the people are professional, thoughtful and just plain PERFECT! I am eternally grateful that we found River Road Chateau and I refuse to imagine my wedding anywhere else!! RRC truly is a fairy tale come true.Micaela P
I can’t say enough great things about River Road Chateau. Every single person who works there was kind, punctual, knowledgeable, and fun. They went above and beyond for us at every single turn. The house and venue are stocked with everything we didn’t know we would even need and Lori and Krysti were always one step ahead of us anticipating what we might need. I was blown away. These people have put their souls into this venue and you can feel it in every detail.Erin H
We loved EVERYTHING about this venue and our experience! I cannot gush enough about how fabulous it was to work with Krysti and Lori. We primarily worked with Krysti and she was so helpful from start to finish. In our initial consultation, she went over what to expect, and what no expect. She explained every detail thoroughly. Throughout planning, she was always quick to respond to my questions (and I had at least 1000). When it got closer to the wedding, we met our event manager (not to be confused with a wedding planner), Lori. She helped me walk through the layout and made great suggestions. On the wedding day, she was able to answer all of my questions and when I wanted something tweaked, she was able to help make it happen. I loved working with her, too! I also love that the venue is so versatile. Our wedding was a little more modern and glam but it still looked beautiful in the country setting. We went to just about every Open House that they had and managed to pick almost all of our vendors that way, and they were all fabulous, too! I would 110% recommend this venue to another bride!Jenelle
