When you choose River Landing as your wedding location, you not only get stunning settings, top-notch service, and delicious food. You also get peace of mind, calm, and the ability to sit back and enjoy a seamless weekend with ease. That’s because, as a River Landing bride or groom, you are able to take advantage of several logistical elements that (while they may seem minor now) end up making a big difference in the flow of your weekend, your guest experience, and your overall ability to experience beautiful moments that you will cherish for a lifetime.
Some of those elements include:
Comfortable, On-Site Spaces to Get Ready and Hang Out Before the Ceremony
Wouldn’t you rather spend the morning of your wedding relaxing in a comfortable space, eating snacks and sipping champagne than driving from place to place while trying to keep your hair from going nuts as you move around? River Landing has several comfortable, on-site spaces for brides and grooms to get ready with their bridal parties, each of which is just steps from your ceremony and reception sites. Our Clubhouse Suites, Magnolia Room, and Oasis Room are beautifully appointed, spacious, and convenient places to get ready and relax before the big moment.
Proximity of Locations for Smooth Event Flow
Trust us: having every event of your day in the same vicinity makes a giant impact on the overall experience of your wedding. With River Landing venues, you can wake up a single person, get ready, get married, celebrate, and go to sleep a newlywed all in the same spot. This means there is no transportation to arrange; no lag time between events; and more time to get gorgeous and sip champagne.
It also means your guests only have to find, drive to, and park at one place, which makes the event more enjoyable for them. By having your ceremony and reception in the same spot, you allow your guests to spend the time between “I now pronounce you” and “Introducing for the first time” sipping cocktails and enjoying hors d'oeuvres instead of getting back in the car and driving to a different location.
Venues for All Your Wedding Events
You already know that River Landing offers beautiful venues for both your ceremony and reception, but did you know that we also have amazing locations for all the supporting events of your wedding, from start to finish? We have both lovely smaller spaces and unique configurations of our larger spaces that work perfectly for engagement parties, bridal showers, bridesmaid luncheons, rehearsal dinners, after parties, and next-day brunches.
To make your weekend even more of a smooth, relaxing experience, we offer several luxurious accommodation options at the venues. Our two-bedroom Club Suites are located in the upper floors of the Clubhouse building, and make the perfect getting ready headquarters and end-of-the-night retreat. These are also great for family members and guests with limited mobility. We also offer our four-bedroom Club Cottages, which are located immediately adjacent to the Clubhouse and are spacious, lovely gathering spots. These are great for bridal parties, family members, and guests who require more handicap accessibility (our Club Cottages are single-story and spacious; please contact us for additional accessibility information).
Variety of Accommodations
The accommodations available for River Landing wedding guests, hosts, and couples are not only convenient, but they’re also diverse in size and price. In addition to our on-site and luxurious Club Suites and Club Cottages, an award-winning Holiday Inn Express is located just outside the gates to River Landing. The Holiday Inn Express includes a free (and delicious) hot breakfast and offers well-appointed standard rooms and suites at a rate that will make your guests’ budgets happy.
Easy Parking and Navigation for Guests
River Landing is easy to find, even for out-of-town guests. Once you’re inside the gates, all of the River Landing ceremony and reception sites are easy to find. They are also all easy to access from our large parking lot with ample parking for guests, making the start to their experience of your wedding super simple.
Streamlined Vendor Management
Choosing one of the River Landing wedding venues also gives you the ability to keep a lot of the items on your to-do list under one umbrella. In addition to your ceremony and reception space, River Landing wedding packages also include all food and beverage, all bar (including alcohol, glassware, and bartenders), all staff, all linens, and all reception tables and chairs. In addition, River Landing brides and grooms can choose to add on-site accommodations; ceremony chairs; heaters; and decor rentals, like a beautiful ceremony arbor, tea lights, a champagne fountain, and more to their package without having to bring on an additional vendor for these items.
This takes some of the burden off of organizing, meeting with, and selecting from a long list of vendors (which can certainly become a headache). You can also be sure to avoid several potential pitfalls of the wedding planning process, like making sure the staff knows the location, the bars are set up in the most efficient locations, the proper amount of alcohol is ordered, the rentals fit the space, and the decor coordinates well with the venue. All of these items and more are taken care of by working with our in-house staff and rentals. If you do need additional vendors, the River Landing weddings team can recommend those we know to be the best, to save you time, energy, and frustration.
