To anyone worried or scared about going ahead with their wedding during Covid, try not to stress, make it fun, embrace the weird! Fred and Chris, are absolutely incredible and our day went ahead on our 10 year anniversary as normal. With only a few changes due to Covid. I would highly recommend getting married at Riverside Ranch. Freddie even took us to the ceremony on the back of his truck and we did the pontoon ride down as our entrance into the reception, all of our guests thought the day was amazing and everyone commented how beautiful the ranch was. We definitely consider Fred and Chris to be friends and plan on visiting again when we go up that way again. Thanks again Chris and Fred for the unforgettable time we had!

It was great! We had it for 3 days and that made it so much more enjoyable and not stressful. This venue is just so gorgeous, surrounded by water and so well maintained. Highly recommend!
