This past October my husband and I got married at RiverCrest Golf Club in Phoenixville, PA. Our expectations were blown out of the water with the service we received on our wedding day as well as during all of the planning leading up to our wedding. Dawn, the event coordinator, was so helpful and detailed in guiding us to choose options from the food to the timeline of the day to ceremony specifics. Her organization and gentle reminders for deadlines were exactly what we needed to stay on top of the planning process. Our wedding day itself was fantastic thanks to the excellent staff at RiverCrest and all the venue has to offer. My bridesmaids and I relaxed most of the morning in the bridal suite while the staff (shout out to Konare, Shayna, and Michelle) took care of us and coordinated with vendors in preparation for the ceremony and reception. Our ceremony by the pool was beautiful and even though the weather was not ideal (cool and windy), the staff helped us make our dream ceremony happen anyway and made an effort to keep our guests warm inside until the last possible minute. The cocktail hour was amazing and every time I talk to friends and family about our wedding, this is what they comment on first. "Delicious.. visually impressive... awesome." The reception started and was executed smoothly. Konare and Shayna continued to check on my husband and I all night. Again, dinner was delicious and we heard the same feedback from our guests. We had the best time on our wedding day and felt fully attended to and taken care of. If I had to do it all over again, I would surely pick RiverCrest. Thank you again to Dawn, Konare, Shayna, Michelle, and all the other staff who helped make our wedding day perfect. You certainly know how to do weddings right.
What can I say that hasn't already been sung from the mountaintops on all of the reviews below?! Shame on me for not writing this sooner, but married life has gotten the best of me I suppose!! My husband and I had our reception at Rivercrest on October 29 2016. Before visiting RC for the first time, we had already seen about 10 other venues in the area. I can tell you from the moment we pulled onto the grounds of the golf club and walked into the ballroom, we were hooked. But it was truly our first meeting with Dawn that sealed the deal. She is genuine and kind, and guided us without being pushy. She and her staff (Shana, Konare, and everyone!) are truly professional and go above and beyond to make the bride and groom happy. Happy bride and groom = happy guests! They made sure to keep all of my vendors adhering to the timeline for our wedding day to ensure a smooth evening and also so that my husband and I didn't miss out on anything. The day was exactly as we envisioned it and it was all because RiverCrest and staff. From the food, to the bridal suite, to the amazing staff - look no further, you will not be disappointed! My guests from our wedding are still comparing our wedding to other weddings they have been to recently, and our wedding has really set the bar high! Thanks to River Crest.
My Husband and I had our ceremony and reception on New Years Eve and I cannot explain how amazing the staff at RiverCrest was. Our main contact, Dawn, was so helpful and very understanding of what we wanted (because we honestly didn't even know what)! She helped make decisions and made the process of preparing for our big day go very smoothly. I had some crazy complications that put me in the hospital two days before the wedding till the morning of the wedding, so I could not attend our rehearsal and was not able to fully interact during the wedding. Rivercrest took charge and made sure everything still functioned like it was supposed to. I am SO THANKFUL for Konare and Katie. They participated in the rehearsal and made sure everyone knew what they were doing (especially my dad :)) The whole day of the wedding they made sure I had everything I needed particularly since I could not move around as much. Konare went above and beyond to make sure I was comfortable, fed and hydrated which was very important with my condition the entire night!! I cannot thank them enough! Their service was top of the line! The hospitality, food, experience and even just the overall set up was so easy. Everything I wanted was there and perfectly placed (and this was huge because I was not even there to tell them). Their food is amazing and everyone still tells me to this day how great it was. I would and will recommend this venue to anyone that is looking for something absolutely beautiful. They truly know how to take care of their customers and my husband and I are eternally grateful for how everything turned out, especially with the circumstances we were dealt with personally.
My husband and I got married on May 20th and we are so happy with choosing Rivercrest. From the day we first walked in for a tour of the place till the end of the wedding night, we have nothing but great things to say. Everyone made sure the wedding was just the way we wanted it to be. From the food, to the big dance floor, and beautiful ballroom, we loved everything about our wedding! One of our friends still says "that fish was unreal" yes, it truly was. That is something we loved hearing. We wanted to know our guests truly loved their food and had a good time. People have also raved about the mashed potato bar at the cocktail and the amazing food at dinner. Rivercrest is a sure winner! The staff went above and beyond making sure my husband and I were happy the whole time. Thank you to the wonderful staff for helping make our wedding day so special.
My husband and I got married at the RiverCrest 11 months ago...where did the time go?!! It truly feels like the best day of our lives was just yesterday. We booked the RiverCrest about a year and a half before our wedding. We remember pretty vividly pulling up to see the venue for the first time. Despite it being a dreary, cold day in January, we were immediately impressed by the curve appeal as we pulled onto RiverCrest Drive. The grounds were beautiful, welcoming, and we grew even more impressed after meeting Dawn and going on the tour with Dawn. We knew immediately that this was where we wanted to get married. Dawn was wonderful!! She made the wedding planning process run so smoothly! From the initial visit/tour, vendor advice, the menu tasting, the planner packet, help with questions along the way via emails and phone calls....Dawn was incredibly responsive, organized and helpful throughout it all and we couldn't be more grateful for her assistance in planning the biggest and best day of our lives. Our wedding day was absolutely beautiful! From the weather, to getting ready in the bridal suite, to our outdoor ceremony, the cocktail hour and stationed hor d'oeurves (one of the many great recommendations from Dawn), the beautiful grand ballroom and big dance floor, the delicious dinner, ice cream bar, candy bar, and we could go on...it all went off without a hitch! And we have all of the staff at RiverCrest to thank, especially Dawn, Michele and Shayna, who were incredibly attentive, helpful and kind during the wedding planning process and day of our wedding. Thanks for helping to make our wedding day the best day of our lives! We are forever grateful!!
Wedding date 10-14-16 Dawn and staff and RiverCrest were amazing. They were on top of every little deal from start to finish. RiverCrest has amazing food for the best price around. Guests raved about the poolside ceremony, appetizers and food. I would recommend RiverCrest to any couple. You will not be dissapointed!
Where to begin. What an amazing venue and staff. Dawn made the process easy for us and gave us nothing but the best. She is detailed, professional, and knowledgeable and I could not have asked for a better experience. The venue is beautiful inside and out, the food was delicious and the staff accommodating. Our guest raved about everything from the ceremony (at the pool), to the amazing cocktail hour with endless and fantastic food, the fabulous dinner, and the flowing drinks. A big thank you to everyone at The Rivercrest especially the staff we had on our wedding night. The bartenders and wait staff went above and beyond, the chefs/cooks prepared amazing food, the manger Kunari did an outstanding job making sure everything ran efficiently and timely, and lastly our maitre d Shana did an amazing job from the moment we stepped in the door, to helping the men with their boutonnieres, pinning my dress and making sure Eddie and I were never empty handed. I can not thank The Rivercrest staff enough for an amazing and unforgettable night. 10/02/2016
My husband and I got married at Rivercrest in August of 2016. We can't emphasize enough how great our whole experience was. Being a very overwhelmed bride, Dawn and her staff were so attentive and helpful throughout the entire process, from the moment we picked Rivercrest to weeks after the wedding was over to follow up with us about our day. The food was perfect and everything went so well. We felt like it truly was a day all about making us happy and making sure nothing went wrong. We highly recommend this venue! and thank you again to Dawn and everyone at Rivercrest for making our reception so perfect!
love my family
RiverCrest was amazing!! Dawn was great to work with along with her staff. Everyone was very helpful throughout the whole wedding process. She made planning a wedding seem easy! RiverCrest made our wedding day the best day of our lives! They took care of everything the day of, so we were able to really enjoy the day! The food was exceptional. All food was organic and the choices were absolutely delicious. I Strongly recommend this venue if you're planning a wedding!
My husband Ryan and I could not be more thrilled with our experience planning and hosting our reception at Rivercrest. From the beginning planning stages, to the amazing private tasting, to our actual wedding day Dawn and her team made the entire process a breeze. The private bridal suite stocked with appetizers and drinks and the personal attention we felt from the moment we walked in on our wedding day were just the icing on the cake. We have gotten so many compliments on the beautiful venue as well as the phenomenal food. We cannot recommend Rivercrest enough!!!
Where do I even begin! Our wedding on July 1, 2016 at RiverCrest was beautiful, elegant, and priceless. From our very first meeting with Dawn to our big day, everything was flawless and exactly what we envisioned. RiverCrest is absolutely beautiful inside and out, and all their staff are superb; they went well beyond their job duties to ensure that our experience was unforgettable! Prior to signing with RiverCrest, I toured almost every wedding venue in Delaware and Chester County. RiverCrest was the only venue where my Husband and I actually felt welcomed, and not viewed as just another wedding/revenue source. Dawn and the staff made us feel like we were her only wedding of the year. They truly maintained the meaning and importance of our day, and helped us to enjoy the beauty of the day. I really could go on for hours about Dawn and her staff. The other fantastic aspect of our day was the phenomenal food!! My guests still rave about the food. This was huge for me; I have had so many bad experiences at other's wedding receptions, and I did not want my guests to experience the same. From our tasting to the actual night, the food was amazing and of such high quality. We are so thankful for everything that Dawn and her staff did for us in order to make our Wedding a dream come true! Thank you Dawn!! Love, Jessica and Tony
Our experience with Rivercrest was exceptional from start to finish. They helped plan our event, both with personal help from Dawn, and a great vendor list from which we picked all of our vendors. The execution the day of the wedding was amazing, and the attention and help we received from Shayna and Kunari were tremendously helpful. We not only had an unforgettable experience, but also had the chance to enjoy the amazing food - something so many people seem to miss at their own wedding. When we weren't hungry for our dinner as it was served, Shayna even made sure we got to take portions with us for later! Every single guest was sure to tell us how great they thought the whole event was. We highly recommend Rivercrest and the whole team!
Rivercrest provided an absolutely amazing wedding experience and we couldn't have chosen a better venue. The staff was very flexible, the food was beyond amazing and the location was perfect. I would highly recommend this venue to everyone!!!
We had a wonderful wedding experience with River Crest! Dawn Gannon was an awesome wedding planning- she always reached out and offered great advance and opinion when asked. The day of the wedding the staff was incredible. They were always available for any need and always checked to see if we needed anything. They truly made sure the day was about the bride and groom. We would definitely get married there again!
My husband and I had our wedding ceremony and reception at the RiverCrest Golf Club in June 2016. From the moment my husband and I saw the beautiful grounds and gorgeous ballroom we knew it was the perfect place to have our wedding. Words can't describe how amazing Dawn was to work with. Shayna and Konare gave us their undivided attention and treated us like royalty. Our family and friends are still raving about how great the food and service were at the wedding. We still get compliments on the cocktail hour. We chose to do the stations and they were a big hit with our guests, especially the mashed potato martini bar! Dawn and her team made all of our wedding dreams come true and went above and beyond our expectations!!
My husband, Joe and I chose RiverCrest for our wedding on June 11, 2016 (I can't believe it has already been almost 4 months!). From the day we booked our wedding almost two years prior to the event, Dawn was so wonderful to work with! She was always a quick email or phone call away. She checked in to make sure our planning was going well. We did end up using a couple of their recommended vendors (along with some of our own) We chose the DJ, ceremony officiant, and the baker from their list. All three were wonderful choices! I was glad to have these suggestions, and I am glad we chose the ones we did. I am so happy we chose RiverCrest. The venue is absolutely beautiful!! The grounds are nicely kept, the flowers and trees are gorgeous. The cocktail area and reception area are also gorgeous! The day of our wedding flew by - way too fast! Everything was perfectly set up. Dawn was there, along with two assistants, who helped our day run perfectly! There was a chance of rain, and we had planned to have our ceremony out by the pool. They had a back up plan ready to go, but thankfully it turned out to be a perfect (although hot!) day! Everything went smoothly, and we had nothing to worry about but each other, and having fun with our guests. The food was AMAZING! Everything was just so perfect! (Sorry if I am sounding redundant, but there is no other way to say it!) We are still getting rave reviews from family and friends that attended our wedding. It was the happiest day of our lives together so far, and a fun day that no one will forget! Thank you to all the wonderful people at RiverCrest who made our day so special! We cannot thank you enough! -- Michelle & Joe Carfrey PS - To those in search of a wedding venue in this area, I HIGHLY recommend choosing RiverCrest! It will be the best decision you have ever made!
We loved RiverCrest as a the venue for our wedding reception in June 2016. The special order glassware, dishware and linens were all coordinated through Dawn and really simplified the process. The food tasting was incredibly generous and gave us a wonderful sense of the offerings. Staff and event coordinator were very professional and really worked with us to customize our wedding day. The chef even put together a special “Polish station” as part of our appetizers. All of the food from the appetizers to dinner to dessert were top notch. Our guests keep remarking on how they wish to return to our cocktail hour to eat even more delicious hors d'oeuvres. The venue itself was beautiful with the golf course backdrop, outside patio with the swimming pool, and event hall itself. We couldn’t have been happier with how the whole day turned out!
Our wedding was like fairytale and we owe so much of that to RiverCrest for the amazing job they did at our wedding reception. Dawn and her team were easy to work with from the start, helping out with any details necessary. They had everything under control at the cocktail hour and reception, I did not need to worry about anything! So many of my guests raved and raved about the food and service throughout the night and then after-- "it was the best I've ever had at a wedding!" We could not have been more thrilled with their performance and we would 100% recommend RiverCrest for any event.
We don't feel that our review can do justice to the amazing experience we had with RiverCrest but we will try! Aside from the venue itself being so beautiful, the staff is incredible. The service that they provide, especially Dawn, is beyond words. Dawn helped us plan our PA wedding from FL and nothing went awry. She helped keep us on target and gave us her advice on things we were unsure of without being pushy. She adjusted our tasting to an earlier time in the process than usual so that we could be there with our families and let us tell you, that food in exquisite. Dawn made the entire process so easy! In the end, our guests were utterly delighted by everything and so were we. I hope I can be a guest of wedding there myself soon!
I can not say enough amazing things about RiverCrest Golf Club! We have almost been married a year, and are still hearing rave reviews from everyone who attended our wedding! Dawn was absolutely the best to work with from start to finish! When we met with her as we were touring wedding venues, we knew that it was the right place for us. Because of my husband and my schedules, we knew we would be engaged for less than a year, so we were worried about having to research so many vendors. By setting us up with the vendors for the included cake as well as other preferred vendors, she made the decision so easy; we knew we would have someone in our corner, helping us the whole way. Dawn did not hesitate to answer any questions, regardless of how minute the detail was! She made us feel like we were the only Bride and Groom planning our wedding there, every time we walked in the door! During the months leading up to our wedding, I started building the "vision" of how our reception would look, and RiverCrest executed on this perfectly! On the day of our wedding, the staff was so attentive; by having an attendant with us the whole time, we felt like we were King and Queen for the day :) We got married on August 1st of 2015, so you always worry about the weather being hot, but the staff made sure we kept cool as we were taking our pictures outside! All of the food was amazing - especially the stations! The mashed potato bar had rave reviews, and I loved the mini crab cakes option since I had lived in Baltimore for 8 years before moving to Philly! The bar option was the best one of any venue we visited, which was something that our guests were impressed by! It was so nice to have a venue that cared about you so much on the biggest day of your life so far. If you are looking for a high-value, low-stress, absolutely beautiful venue, this is the place for your big day! I would recommend it to anyone!
Words can't describe how amazing Rivercrest was for our special day!! From our very first meeting with Dawn I knew this was the venue. While planning my wedding I was fininshing up my nursing degree and knew I needed reliable vendors because school had to come first. I felt so confident from the beginning that my vision was being understood and that I could trust everything would be perfect! My husband and I hosted our wedding on February 20th 2016 which was a beautiful 60+ degree day!! We had a gorgeous great gatsby themed wedding that went off flawlessly! To this day I still have people telling me that it was the best wedding they have been too and raving about the food and staff ! The bridal suite was amazing and accomodating for us on the morning of the wedding and our rehersal dinner was delicious!! Thank you so much to the staff at RIvercrest for helping me plan an amazing wedding with no stress!
If it were possible to give a rating higher than five stars, I most certainly would. My husband and I fell in love with RiverCrest the moment we first visited. The grounds were gorgeous even in winter, and the ballroom was perfect for the reception we were envisioning. Little did we know when we chose RiverCrest as our venue that we had just planned on getting married during the only winter storm of 2016! We were beside ourselves when we found out that the storm was set to hit the Saturday of our wedding. That Thursday prior, Dawn worked diligently with us, and we were able to move the entire reception twenty-four hours to Friday. Every detail was perfect; you would have never known that the staff had twenty-four hours less time to prepare. The entire setup was immaculate. The food (we went with the chicken saltimbocca and gorgonzola-stuffed filet) was amazing. Our guests could not stop raving about the entire event. Thank you to Dawn and the rest of the RiverCrest family for helping us pull off our winter wonderland wedding!
Rivercrest was the perfect venue for our wedding and we could not of been more pleased with how great everything turned out! Dawn and her staff went above and beyond and were amazing to work with through the whole process. Dawn was always very responsive to my numerous emails and made sure to do her best to make my visions come to life. I am so happy with our decision to have our reception at Rivercrest and so many of our guests are still talking about how the venue was so beautiful and how great the food was! All of our guests were dancing all night so the big dance floor was also a huge hit! We chose to do a head table instead of a sweetheart table and even though we had a bridal party of 18 people, Dawn was able to take a picture I showed her and make it work to look just like it and we loved how it turned out! Since the weather was nice our guests were able to enjoy the outside patio which was great for pictures as well. There aren't enough words to say how great of a venue Rivercrest is and I beyond pleased with the way everything turned out. Thank you Dawn and staff for helping make our wedding the best day of our lives!
Rivercrest Gold Course was the most perfect place we could've picked for our big special day! Dawn and her team were so organized, detail-oriented and paid attention to our special wants and needs. The food for cocktail hour and entrees were amazing. The picture path was awesome for us to take some intimate shots and very romantic. Everything from the tasting, to the day of our wedding, we knew we had made the right choice to have our wedding day somewhere different, but absolutely perfect!
