We booked Riverdale Manor for our ceremony and reception more than a year in advance. When we saw the grounds and the gorgeous ballroom and farmhouse, we immediately fell in love. The place is truly GORGEOUS! First and foremost, honestly, I would take some of the past reviews with a grain of salt. As long as you respect their clearly laid-out rules about what is and is not allowed, you will get along fine with their day-of coordinators. And their rules are not bad - they all make sense, such as making sure that, if you have candles, the base/candleholders are substantial enough so that the wax doesn't drip on the linens and the flame doesn't catch anything on fire. They also don't allow things like glitter, or tacking/taping things to the walls - but we definitely didn't want any of that anyway! Trust in the coordinators - they know what they are doing. And we did not have a cookie-cutter wedding. We were quirky and fun, and Riverdale was completely supportive of our choices.

The ceremony was held in the pavilion due to inclement weather, but it was a fantastic alternative to getting married outside. It is decorated with white lights, which cast a warm glow on our ceremony - it was so romantic and truly beautiful. The one word that I would describe the atmosphere with at the ceremony is "warm" - just a lovely glow everywhere because of the natural wood of the pavilion and the soft white lights from the ceiling above. The ballroom (which held our reception) is beautiful, with fresh white walls, hardwood floors, recycled wood beams, and wrought iron chandeliers. Everything was just lovely!

Our planner was Maureen, who was great, organized and really a wonderful person to work with. She ALWAYS got back to me quickly. E-mail is a great way to get in touch with them, and I never really had to wait more than a day or so for a response - but usually I would get a response within a few hours.

The food was also spectacular. Thyme and Seasons is Riverdale's exclusive caterer, and you cannot go wrong with them. They give you a free tasting once you have booked them. We have loads of leftovers, and even after being frozen and re-heated everything is delicious, haha!

Overall, Riverdale is a great place to have your event. I would highly recommend them to anyone! I didn't have to worry about anything on the day - they took care of placing the centerpieces (which were not from a florist but were our own quirky centerpieces), our escort cards, the frame for our guests to sign - everything. We didn't need to worry about a single thing. The whole day went very smoothly, and it was really nice to have a coordinator for the day of, which comes as a free service when you book with Riverdale.

And plus, they tucked a little gift in my reception decor boxes at the end of the reception when we were packing everything away, which I will definitely be using come Christmas :-)

Thank you Riverdale!!

Riverdale Manor - The owner Maureen is very condescending and rude. If the bride wants two starches there is no need for a 20 min explanation on why she wouldn't want that. They are refusing to make a long head table and insist on sitting members of the bridal partys backs to the guests! They are very resistant to the brides wishes and after several requests will not do what the bride wishes.
