The River Club Wedding Testimonials

Thank you for considering The River Club for your next event. Below are testimonials from others who have hosted their special day with us.

The River Club was such a wonderful venue for our wedding. It is a beautiful venue/location with the best staff. The coordinators Kim and Allison were amazing to work with and made the process of planning easy and the wedding fun! I wasn't worried about anything going wrong because the whole staff is so professional. The food was also wonderful. All our guests are still raving about our wedding thanks to all the great people who made the day perfect. My husband and I couldn't have asked for a better or more memorable day!

The River Club was AMAZING! I can't say enough good things about them. It was stress free the entire time and they bent over backwards with anything we asked. Allison was by far the greatest at keeping things calm and on track. I would highly recommend the River Club to any bride who wants an amazing wedding experience as well as a breathtaking view!!!

Our rehearsal dinner was everything we could have wanted. The food was delicious, everyone got exactly what they had asked for, and the service was great. The tasting experience was even better than the tasting we had at our actual wedding venue! Not only was the view amazing, but they truly made you feel like you were important. And they gave us more than enough food to make our decision, which was awesome. Kim was amazing at communicating and answering all our questions. Thank you Kim!

We had our wedding reception on the top two floors of The River Club and it was absolutely beautiful! Allison and the entire staff were helpful from the early planning stages to the day of our wedding. Our guests are still talking about how amazing the dinner was. The views of downtown Jacksonville at night was perfect. Thanks again to Allison and her staff for their hard work and making our wedding day a day to remember and cherish!

My now husband and I selected The River Club as our rehearsal dinner venue. We searched for a venue with a formal dinner setting yet a unique atmosphere. The River Club exceeded our expectations and Kimberly effortlessly organized the event despite the long distance communication. All we had to do was bring in the cake and centerpieces, every other detail was put into place for us. We accidentally scheduled our wedding on the weekend of a HUGE football game... FSU vs. Bama! The River Club provided us with a special room for the game to be viewed after our event. We can't say enough wonderful things about this venue!

We're both extremely pleased with how our rehearsal dinner at The River Club turned out. The views are unparalleled in downtown, and so our sunset-timed event benefited from a gorgeous backdrop. Service was anticipatory and professional; our food choices for the buffet were uniformly excellent, and the selection of desserts was varied and tasty. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the River Club, and look forward to future opportunities to host events there.

We were beyond ecstatic at how professional and accommodating the River Club was during our special day! Our wedding reception was scheduled just under three weeks after hurricane Irma hit Jacksonville and the River Club closed due to water damage. My hubby and I were stressing because over 90 percent of wedding guest and party were out of town and invitations with directions were already sent. We received a call from the Director of the River Club 1 week and a half before our wedding stating they are reopening after the hurricane and valet parking would be available for free for our guest. I was so excited I cried tears of relief! Thanks to all staff of the River Club our wedding reception was all we dreamed and more. Our guest raved about the food, crab cakes especially and sea bass. The view was breathtaking for out of town guest from all over the U.S. I highly recommend the River Club for a dream come true wedding and reception. Would give 10 stars if I could on here.

The River Club was a wonderful place to have our rehearsal dinner. They were attentive and paid attention to detail. They went above and beyond to make sure it was exactly what we wanted. The food was amazing and the view is stunning. I look forward to having more events at the river club in the near future!

Our wedding ceremony and reception was held at The River Club. The venue itself is breathtaking, but the food and the service…..absolutely amazing! The entire staff, Allison C., in particular was responsive, professional, and courtesy and took care of everything. We were able to truly enjoy our day; there was nothing to stress over because The River Club ensured everything was covered. Their concern for the small details and pride in their work was evident. Small details we didn't think of or ask for was already taken care of and added to enhancement of the evening. Our guests continue to compliment our wedding day; the details, the decor, the service. The River Club made the day better than we could have imagined.

We hosted our rehearsal dinner at the River Club in March, and it was a phenomenal experience. My mom (mother of the groom) and I (sister of the groom) planned the dinner with the help of Allison at the RC. We don’t live in Jacksonville so we were a bit worried about planning this from afar, but everything was smooth sailing—they know what they’re doing for sure. We had some special requests around the timing of the evening and the dietary requirements (vegan, kosher, GF options), and it was no problem for the RC. Allison set up a wonderful tasting for us, and at the event the food was well-timed and presented beautifully, not to mention delicious. We played a video after dinner, and everything worked perfectly. Wedding events are tough, because you’re working with multiple families/family members and everyone has an opinion, but Allison and the RC staff did a wonderful job of getting to know us and making the event exactly what we dreamed it could be with minimal drama. Our family and friends are still talking about what a wonderful, thoughtful, celebratory evening this was. We’re grateful to the River Club and their 5-star service and setting for helping us plan a great rehearsal dinner, and we’d recommend them to others looking for a classy, hassle-free event.

The Wedding was Beautiful (as I expected) and the Reception hosted at The River Club was lovely! As always, your staff was on top of it and could not have been more accommodating to any need. Whenever we recommend The River Club, we are assured of a First Class event! Thank you for all you do to make these things happen.

 Allison and the River Club team could not have done more to make our wedding more perfect!! Allison met with us as many times as we requested, had great ideas that made a huge impact on the event, and was patient when we went back and forth on decisions. We planned our wedding in 6 months without a planner, and the only reason it was possible was because I had so little to worry about with the reception venue! The food and drinks are always incredible, service phenomenal, and of course you can't pick a more elegant or comfortable space with a better view. Getting married in the middle of summer, we also didn't have to worry about weather- we knew we'd be inside no matter rain or 100 degree heat - and it was 100 degrees on our day :) We also didn't have to spend a fortune trying to dress up the space or go to extreme lengths trying to fill up space or make it look different. It was wonderfully laid out for our event with ~220 guests. I could go on and on, but everyone was blown away by the event and I didn't have to stress about a thing that weekend. Wish we could relive the evening 10 more times!

The River Club was the most picturesque place to hold my Rehearsal Dinner in late June. The breathtaking backdrop of Jacksonville made my guests gasp and the food & drinks were to-die-for. Linda Henry and Kim Nall held my hand from start to finish and made sure thateverysingle detail was perfect. I highly recommend for any event!

The venue is picturesque, overlooking all of Jacksonville; at night the view of the city is absolutely stunning. The River club staff was cheerful, very professional, and made our event perfect! Amanda Juneau and Allison Culpepper were very helpful and extremely amazing to work with while planning our wedding reception! They went above and beyond, making sure to pay close attention to all the details and worked hard to make everything perfect! I couldn’t have asked for a better experience! Thank you River Club for making our wedding extra special!!
