"I recently held my daughters wedding at The Rivers Retreat in Covington, La. We were able to spend four days prior to the ceremony enjoying the beautiful property. It gave us ample time to decorate as well as having access to the cabins in which the bridal party and grooms party were able to enjoy. The dining hall is beautiful and we had access to a top notch kitchen where the caterer had access to several days before the event. We were also able to have rehearsal dinner there as well. It’s a wonderful place for big events. It has a gorgeous enclosed pavilion with a beautiful brick fireplace that was used as a focal point for the ceremony. All in all it was way beyond our expectations. I would definitely recommend this venue. The owner was very accommodating and was eager to please. Top notch!!" - Sharon D. 9-15-2020 (from The Knot)
