What Customers Are Saying
“We have been working with Ms. Carrie on planning our wedding here at the River Landing. The prices are fantastic, it’s a beautiful location, and the staff is so friendly and welcoming. They communicate well with us and have been so great at answering all my questions in a timely manner. I can’t wait for our wedding in the fall of 2022!” -Isabella Horne
“We visited for a wedding. What a beautiful venue for a Southern wedding offering terrific views, gold and water views, and Southern hospitality. I would only be guessing but think the space was very well set up to accommodate 250 to 300 people both for the wedding reception and for a sit-down dinner which was set up during a cocktail hour after the ceremony held on the cupboard veranda and has space to accommodate a live band and dance floor too. It was a wedding to remember.” -Amanda Bullock
“We attended a wedding here on 8/3/19. The venue was perfect. The staff was amazing, very professional and friendly. And the food was excellent. Great job by everyone involved.” -Mark Brown
