Not many people can say that NOTHING went wrong on their wedding day. I feel very lucky that the day went perfect and that is in large part to Riverside. \r\nMy guests are still talking about my Sept 09 wedding and how gorgeous everything was, from the flowers outside to the view from the upstairs dinning area. Tina, Jorge and the rest of the staff worked with my vendors day of to make sure everything was perfect.\r\nI have never been to a wedding that had better food. The chef was great about all my special requests. Everyone went above and beyond making it a truely special experience!

The rooms looked beautiful! We were married upstairs in the Tapestry Room overlooking the Fox River. We had perfect timing as it started to snow just as our ceremony started . . . what a beautiful site!

Following the ceremony was a cocktail hour for our guests while we took photos. Our guests headed down to the bar area (with a beautiful wood bar) and enjoyed delicious appetizers such as Phyllo with Baked Brie and Raspberry, Stuffed Mushrooms, and Scallop wrapped in Bacon. They even brought some up to the wedding party during photos.

Then the evening moved to dinner in the River Room, again overlooking the Fox River. The room was stunning! We started off with Cream of Roasted Red Pepper Soup. Then enjoyed the Riverside Salad (Bibb Lettuce with Strawberries and White Cheddar with a Smoked Mushroom Vinaigrette Dressing). Dinner was a choice between Roasted Rack of Lamb with Duchess Potatoes and Roasted Root Vegetables or Petit Filet & Chicken Breast with Horseradish Mashed Potatoes and Green Beans Provencal. All the food was exquisite and our guest still talk about it (more than a year later)!

Our wedding cake (which was included as part of the reception) was from The Cakery in North Aurora. We chose a white cake with hazelnut filling and a butter cream frosting. It was as beautiful as it was delicious. We have ordered the same cake from them many times since. Along with the delicious cake we had the Queen??s Sweets Table . . . what a great selection of treats! They were enjoyed by all.

We finished off the evening in yet another room . . . we danced the night away in the Mill Room. It was wonderful to have the evening move from room to room. It made it feel more like home. Everyone had a wonderful time and can??t stop talking about it! It has been over a year now and we still hear how our wedding was the best and most elegant wedding they have ever been to.

I would highly recommend Riverside Receptions to anyone looking to have a wedding or event! We had a wonderful time and the staff was superb! With out Tina and her staff my wedding would not have been as wonderful as it was. Thank You!
