    Our wedding at Riverlife was the happiest and most enjoyable day of our lives. Even despite the rainy weather, Riverlife were able to provide us with our beautiful dream outdoor wedding. From the moment we booked our special day a year in advance until the end of the wedding reception, Riverlife catered to our every need and request to ensure that we had the most perfect day. The venue, the people, the food, and everything in between were just amazing and we couldn’t have been more grateful or pleased.

    I wanted to take this moment to thank you for what was, one of the best nights of our lives! My guests have commented so highly on the quality of food, and everyone went home with full bellies – this is just what I was looking for in a cocktail party. Thank you to your team who I know work tirelessly in the hours leading up to our special event. I hope we all get the opportunity to work together again, and I cannot stop telling people about how amazing the night was. Thank you again for not only making the memory for Stephen and I, but also for sharing in the night that we will forever remember as one of the best.
