We had our ceremony at a nearby church and held the reception at Riverdale. Although we had to push back our wedding date in order to get this venue, it was well worth it! Throughout the planning process, Maureen made it incredibly easy. She was always available to contact when I had questions and was always accommodating, no matter how little the question. She definitely knows what she wants so sometimes you have to fight a little harder for what you want- but she is the professional for a reason, she knows what she's doing.
Our dinner was station style and that was a huge hit! People loved being able to choose whatever food they wanted, and getting as much as they wanted. The food was all delicious- we got so many compliments from people that it was better than normal wedding food. We had the dessert bar in addition to a small cake and cut and holy cow, the dessert bar is well worth it! People rushed towards it once it was announced and couldn't get enough.
Everything about the night ran so smoothly. Either Maureen or her assistant were there all night and constantly checked in with myself, my husband and my parents to ensure that everything was going well. I cannot speak highly enough of everyone at Riverdale. We have been to 2 weddings in addition to ours here and it was always a positive experience. We actually requested one of the bartenders from a previous wedding because they were so much fun! I suggest to all brides to get vendors that you can trust to do their job because it makes planning much less stressful. I never once doubted that things would run smoothly at Riverdale Manor.

Riverdale Manor did an amazing job coordinating our wedding. Everything was perfect, the food, the space, the employees. We got so many compliments on our wedding day. Also, the outside vendors we used, recommended by Maureen, were amazing as well. Couldn't ask for more, would recommend this place very highly!!

My daughter's reception was held this past weekend at Riverdale and I can't say enough of how wonderful the entire experience was. Monica was a joy to work with and kept everything on track while always being very pleasant. The whole staff was wonderful. We revceived many compliments on the food. We picked all of the other vendors off of their prefered list which made everything run very smoothly. I would highly recommend all, Petals with Style (Flowers were amazing), DJ Freez (Entertainment), Nathan Desch (Photographer) and Bella Manse (Cake). What really sets Riverdale apart is the fact that it is not a per person charge. You can tailor everything to how much or how little you would like to spend. My daughter got married at our church, but if you would like to get married there the grounds right on the river are gorgeous. You will not regret it if you decide on Riverdale Manor!
