We know weddings and what works at Riviera Country Club! We start with an outdoor space that is the perfect, serene setting for all of our couples to tie the knot. Gazebos grace a large lake offering a special spotlight for couples to say “I do” while guests have plenty of room to enjoy the moment. This environment is a special place to snap photos whether they are professionally done or just selfies. Our reception halls offer everything you want for a great party with white satin-covered chairs tied up with bows and vases full of silk roses for your tables. We can accommodate up to 320 guests. We strive to make it easy by including tax and gratuity in our package prices.
Your guests’ night begins with complimentary hot hors d’oeuvres and champagne during the first cocktail hour. These bites will be a great appetizer for guests before dinner and include teriyaki steak, honey mustard chicken, sweet and sour pork, boneless BBQ ribs and battered fried mushrooms. During your 5½ hour reception, we will also serve up unlimited table wine throughout dinner and cocktail service will be available for the bridal and immediate family tables during dinner as well. We will also take care of the cake, cutting it up and serving with vanilla ice cream.
You will have a hand in selecting the color of table runners on your guests’ tables and the color of up-lighting that shines behind your head table. The head, registry, cake and gift tables are skirted and raised to up the style factor. There is also tuelling above guest tables and a private bridal room for the bride.
This is a hard question to answer as you have so many choices! Your first decision will be if you want a package with family-style entrees, single-plated entrees or combination plated entrees. Main dish selections vary among these packages. For example, combination choices include filet mignon and grilled jumbo shrimp, broiled orange roughy and boneless grilled chicken breast or New York strip steak and boneless grilled chicken breast.
Sides also shine alongside our entree selections! All dinners include salads, rolls and butter, coffee, tea, soft drinks and milk. You can choose your entree accompaniments such as baked potato, rice pilaf, wild rice, green beans or a broccoli, cauliflower and carrot combo. We have homemade soups as well that are available in such varieties as cream of chicken rice, minestrone, vegetable beef and chicken noodle. Couples can add late-night options such as champagne or chocolate fountain, sundae, slider, hot dog or taco/nacho bars or even tomato soup and grilled cheese.
