The Wedding Reception of our Dreams!
We were just married on July 19, 2019 at Trinity Lutheran Church in Tinley Park and followed our ceremony with the most amazing Wedding Reception at the Riviera Country Club in Orland Park. We knew from the moment we met the owners and walked into the Country Club a year prior that this was the perfect place and venue for our reception! We had viewed over 6 venues in one day and came across the Riviera Country Club and stopped in that day as one of our last visits. The moment we walked in and met the owners; Karen and Dan, we felt comfortable and right at home. Out of every place we visited not one would give us a tasting without making a deposit. Karen and Dan welcomed us with open arms and asked if we would like to come back later that day for a tasting. Of course, we were super excited and did. Wow!!! We were so impressed, not only did we have a tasting but a private tasting for two of a full course meal in the very room we were looking at booking. The food was so amazing and ambiance of the room that we were sold immediately. We made our deposit and booked the date and LakeView Room!
Throughout the entire year process we had amazing communication with Karen and Dan as we made our final deposits finalized our menu, colors, decor, etc. We can honestly say there was no stress because everything was taken care on their end perfectly! Even on the wedding day they worked so wonderfully with our bridal party, guests, our DJ, and photographers. We were able to enjoy our reception and guests without any concerns.
The week prior to the wedding we were in contact with our seating, last min requests, and dropped off things we needed to finish decorating our room. Karen was so flexible and let us come a day early to set up our gift table, favors, and table seating. The room was completely decorated to with centerpieces we fell in with and our colors with purple and black runners down the tables and our up lighting for our head table was set to go!
On the day of our wedding our DJ and Photographer were able to set up with ease and worked amazing with Karen and Dan as a team! We had approx 150 guests attend our reception. Our guests had amazing hor ‘d’oeuvres and open bar prior to our dinner hour. Family style gourmet dinner with cream of chicken an d rice soup, delicious salad with a raspberry vinaigrette, mostaccioli with beef sauce, sausage and peppers, fresh green beans, fresh mashed potatoes, fried chicken, beef sirloin, coffee, beverages, and ice cream served with our wedding cake. We also had an open bar package for hors d’oeuvre hour, after dinner, and a chocolate fountain that all of our guests enjoyed to the max! Our guests, bridal party, family were at awe by the ambiance and beauty of the room, the service, and quality of food. We even were able to get beautiful pictures taken outside by the little lake and gazebo out back; which was also a beautiful view from inside our room! No words can describe how intimate and beautiful the day was!
There are no words to describe how stunning our reception was and how smooth, calm, and amazing our planning for the big day and the actual day was because of Karen and Dan! Not only did they make our day complete but our Reception was everything we dreamed of and we highly recommend their venue and services to anyone planning a very special occasion such as a wedding, reception, retirement party, anniversary party, birthday, etc. We are so blessed and thankful we chose the Riviera Country Club for our wedding reception venue and will treasure the memories for years to come! We will definitely use their services for any special event we may have in the future as well.
The Riviera Country Club and the owners; Karen and Dan , hold a special place in our hearts and we will be forever grateful that they made our Reception a dream come true.
