The Wedding Memories

One of my favorite wedding memories at Riviera Waterfront Mansion involves a couple who got married here 15 years ago. Recently, they revisited us to attend their niece's wedding, and it was a truly heartwarming experience.

Seeing them walk through our doors, hand in hand and beaming with happiness, brought back a flood of beautiful memories. They reminisced about their own wedding day – the stunning ceremony by the water, the unforgettable sunset, and the joyous celebration with family and friends. It was incredible to see how vividly they remembered every detail, from the delicious food to the warm, personalized service our team provided.

What made their visit even more special was the opportunity to see the next generation of their family creating their own magical memories at our venue. During the reception, the newlyweds surprised everyone by having the DJ play the song from the couple's first dance. Watching them take to the dance floor and relive that cherished moment was truly touching. The soft glow of the chandeliers, the familiar melody, and the love in their eyes created a scene that felt like stepping back in time.

Their visit was not just a walk down memory lane for them but also a beautiful reminder for us of the enduring love stories we help bring to life. It’s couples like them that make our work so fulfilling and inspire us to continue providing exceptional experiences for every wedding we host.

Beautiful location with a staff who went above & beyond to make our day PERFECT! Love that it is only 1 event at a time, so you get undivided attention. The staff made everything run smoothly and anticipated our every need. The food was delicious. Our guests were raving about everything- especially the Viennese Hour!! Amazing experience!

Chelsea S.

BEST DAY EVER!! Seriously, the Riviera blew us away the day of of our wedding. The grounds are beautiful to begin with, and pair it with amazing service = day made. The staff was so attentive to not only my husband, myself, and our bridal party, but to ALL of our guests. Our guests could not get over how attentive the staff was and they could not stop saying how gorgeous the venue was itself as well. There were so many people that had never heard of the Riviera and said it was a hidden gem.

Lisa D.

Had my wedding there and the entire day was absolutely magical. Top to bottom they were absolutely amazing to work with. From the fantastic views, to the breathtaking bridal suite I was completely blown away. Very professional, easily contacted, guests still raving about the food. Amazing team including Tara and Megan who knew what I needed before I even did. Staff was very attentive to all of my guests and really made my special day magical. Don’t walk but rub on over to them for an absolutely amazing wedding experience!

So much goes into planning your big day. With Riviera you have someone on your side that can help you every step of the way. Irene and Tara were so helpful throughout the entire process. The day turned out beautifully. They are a well-oiled machine that makes the day flow easily and calmly. The grounds are beautiful and the staff were great to work with. So many guests complimented the food and were surprised with the abundance of it. They readily accommodated special requests that made our day unique and special. The venue itself is unique in that it has a beautiful, well-manicured outdoor panoramic water view for cocktail hour and ceremony, but then has a warm rustic feel inside with exposed wood beams and high ceilings. Just lovely!

Lidia P.

Our guests raved about the service, the food, the view of the water, and the beautiful ballroom! My husband and I wanted to include Filipino traditions in our ceremony, and they were happy to work with us! We also had guests with dietary restrictions and allergies, and Irene was happy to make note and accommodate. Overall, the wedding day itself went smoothly, thanks to Megan, Tara, and Christina! Megan, our maitre d, kept us calm and kept things running smoothly with any hiccups that came up. Christina made sure we were hydrated, fed, and happy! Our immediate families and bridal party in particular felt very well taken care of, but really all attendees complimented the staff and bartenders for being fun and attentive!

Fran P.

The Riviera Waterfront Mansion made our dream wedding a reality. Not only is the venue absolutely stunning, but the food is terrific and the staff is even better. Throughout our entire planning process, the Riviera staff were helpful, attentive, compliant and never made us feel as if we were an inconvenience. They granted every request we asked and took all the stress out of planning a wedding. All the decorations were set up not only exactly as requested, but even better than expected. The day of our wedding they made the entire bridal party, especially the bride and groom feel line royalty. The energy at the venue that night is unmatched and we have the Riviera staff to thank. Anyone who is looking for a rustic venue on the water needs to book at The Riviera.

Gina G.

We had our wedding and it was an absolute dream with a dream team at the Riviera. From the moment we made the decision to the end our very special night, they were there to answer any questions or help with anything we needed. The night of our wedding we didn’t have to worry about a single thing, they had everything taken care of and treated our guests with the best hospitality and care. We highly recommend the Riviera!

Dana E.

We had our wedding here and it was absolutely beautiful. Our guest had the best time. I found their office to be very organized and responsive when we had questions or concerns leading up to the wedding. They have an amazing food tasting event when you book your wedding to plan your menu, it was a blast! They decorated for us beautifully and did everything we asked for. I would seriously recommend this venue.

Samantha N.

I have nothing but amazing things to say about the Riviera. When my husband and I were searching for venues, we stepped foot into the Riviera and knew it was the one. The venue itself is absolutely stunning, but the management (specifically Irene, who is truly so kind, fun and amazing) made everything so easy for us. Our wedding day was seamless and we have not one thing we can look back badly on. The food was amazing, our Maître d', Julie was phenomenal, our bridal attendant Maria was so sweet and attentive, the bartender Charlie was raved about, and the list goes on. The day was everything we hoped it would be and then some. I truly hope we get to come party at the Riviera again. Recommend 1000000%!

Samantha V.

They went above and beyond to make our day special. We were able to relax and have a great time, and our guests raved about how beautiful the venue was. Would recommend!
