Absolutely amazing experience.

Riverway Clubhouse is without a doubt the perfect venue to get married at. My husband and I got married there this weekend and everything completely exceeded our expectations. First off, the venue, both inside and outside, is immaculate. It was clean, the gardens were all beautifully taken care of and in full bloom (June), and the outdoor pond and fountain make for a gorgeous backdrop for an outdoor ceremony. It’s just an overall beautiful spot, and photographs so well! Secondly, the food is incredible. We did the wedding buffet Riverway Clubhouse offers, and we received tons of compliments from our guests. There is also a ton of variety (a little bit of something for everyone) and they provide vegan meals for guests who are vegan or with certain allergies. Lastly, the staff were absolutely amazing. They were extremely helpful and friendly to us and all our guests, carried the night out without a hitch, and were even available at the end of the night to help us get our items in storage prior to leaving the venue. Also, special shout out to Bradley, who I worked with for over 2 years planning this wedding (COVID delays) - he answered every one of my emails in a timely, detailed, and friendly fashion, he was available by phone and in person, and really, he’s just an amazing person. My special day would not have been the same without him. If you can’t already tell, I highly recommend Riverway Clubhouse as your wedding venue - you will not be disappointed and you will be very well taken care of.

Happily Married!

Highly recommend Riverway if you are considering them for your wedding. Buget, food and atmosphere is on point!! Bradley and his team were so awesome and helpful. Bradley would answer any and all of my endless questions. Unfortunately, the weather decided to rain on the day of our wedding, but Bradley and his team was able to act quickly and help rearrange our ceremony site. They made sure that each chair was dry for my guests. Despite the rain, our ceremony was beautiful thanks to them and my other vendors. Not only is the venue naturally beautiful, the food is delicious!!! I heard nothing but positive comments from my guests! We are so glad we had our wedding with Riverway!

Excellent Wedding Venue

We hosted our wedding at Riverway and were happy with them from start to finish. It is an absolutely stunning venue and we loved getting to have the ceremony, dinner and dance all in one place. So many of our guests commented on the delicious food and wine selections. The service staff were wonderful. The whole event ran smoothly thanks to the amazing team at Riverway.

Amazing Team and Beautiful Venue

Bradley and the riverway team had made our wedding planning such a breeze. Bradley is extremely friendly, and was accommodating from the very beginning (despite the numerous emails we've sent him). The venue itself is beautiful even with minimal decorations. The bridal room was spacious and nicely decorated. Perfect hideaway for the wedding party to take a breather! The riverway team was extremely accommodating and assisted in handling last minute changes with guests and their meals. Kevin spent the time the evening of the wedding ensuring that my partner and I had everything we needed. We received feedbacks from our guests praising the food - the steak and lobster, the salad, the dessert bar, everything was delicious. We highly recommend riverway clubhouse!

Amazing wedding with Riverway!

What a wonderful experience we had with Riverway Clubhouse! My husband and I had the honour of working together with Bradley and Riverway team not once but TWICE! Due to the pandemic, we decided to have a small intimate ceremony in August 2021 and to postpone our reception celebration for September 2022. Throughout the planning process over the past 3 years, Bradley and the team have been very kind, easygoing and honestly extremely helpful. Not only were they understanding but also very supportive and encouraging - even though we had to make some tough decisions last year to split our wedding into two events.

In 2021, the Riverway team worked with my coordinator and me in the months and weeks leading up to the ceremony. Riverway was extremely accommodating even during a time with lots of uncertainty and changes. The morning of our ceremony had been pouring rain and the staff assisted with moving our set up inside. Having the ceremony inside Riverway ended up being such an amazing blessing. The high ceilings and windows with the exposed wood beams was a perfect backdrop and space for our guests. It was intimate, beautiful and perfect. Not to mention the food was amazing! Our guests were greeted with coffee/tea and an array of breakfast treats as they arrived and lunch after the ceremony.

Fast-forward a year later and when the time came for our reception in September 2022 - Bradley was an amazing source of support and assistance. Even though we did not have a coordinator for our reception, Bradley really helped us out the weeks leading up to our big day. Not only was he available to answer all of our questions but also helped guide us and made knowledgeable suggestions for us. Riverway accommodated us with all our requests and ideas.

The events on the day of the reception went seamlessly. The venue was already set up and ready to go in the morning when we began bringing in our décor. Bradley and the staff were ready to go, attentive and supportive all day. Bradley was so thoughtful, checked on us all night, and even brought out water for Justin and me during cocktail hour. The seated dinner service and food was incredible. Countless people came up to us during the night and days after the reception to let us know how much they enjoyed the food (especially the sticky toffee pudding at dessert). The night was nothing less than perfect.

The level of service and professionalism that Riverway provided really blew us away. No wonder Riverway is so popular – it lived up to all our expectations and more. A very special thank you to Bradley, Jason, Michael and Bob! Riverway, thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts! We have loved working with you every step of the way. We wish we could relive the night all over again! We cannot wait to see you at the next event!

Best Venue - Hands Down!

This is an absolutely stunning venue! We received so many compliments by our guests on how beautiful the venue is - well kept and beautiful floral and spacious! We did the wedding buffet, and, again, received so many compliments on how delicious the food was - Alot of our guests commented on how they went for seconds because it was THAT good! Bradley and his team are amazing - professional, knowledgeable and they go above and beyond their roles! Bradley is personable, provides detailed responses to any inquiries/concerns you have, and truly made it easy for us with an arrangements like AV Testing, guest dietary meals, etc. We would definitely recommend Riverway to anyone thinking of having their wedding here. You will not regret this decision.

Dream Venue

Bradley and the Riverway team were extremely friendly and understanding during the planning of our pandemic wedding. I was absolutely blown away by their efforts and accommodating nature that I couldn't have asked for anything more. The venue was naturally beautiful but the staff made it perfect. They were extremely professional and really made it easy to choose them as the location for our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. The patio outside also made it a perfect place for dancing given the pandemic restrictions.

Professional, Kind, Above & Beyond

Working with the Riverway Clubhouse in such unparalleled times was an absolute dream. The staff at Riverway are professional, kind, understanding and absolutely went above and beyond to make our day special. The service was outstanding and ourselves and friends and family were well-taken care of. The micro-wedding 3-course dinner was an absolute HIT and of course - the venue is just stunning!

With regulations constantly changing they were so flexible and willing to work with us. Bradley, our venue co-ordinator answered 1001 of our questions with ease and grace. We cant express enough how lucky we feel to have chosen the Riverway. The team worked tirelessly and are the absolute BEST!

Our guests are raving about what a beautiful and fun event it was. Thank you Bradley & The Riverway Team - we will recommend you to anyone who will listen!!

Above and Beyond

I would absolutely recommend this vendor! Bradley made our experience (during covid) stress-free. He was helpful, professional, detail-oriented, and straight-forward to work with. He went above and beyond to ensure that we were well-informed and well-taken care of. The staff were friendly and professional! Food was delicious too (surf and turf option).

Excellence, Support, Flexibility - STUNNING VENUE

After much research for a stunning wedding venue, our family was thrilled to book Riverway! The reception venue is absolutely beautiful - large framed windows, soaring ceilings, and views of the golf course mean that minimal decor is required. It is modern, bright and has the flexibility of both indoor and outdoor space - a covered, heated area with speakers allows your guests to spill outside in the evening. Our experience with both Bradley and Darren was exceptional. They were quick to respond to all inquiries, happy to sit down and answer our many questions, understanding as we hit the difficulties of Covid and beyond accommodating as we postponed/rebooked/reworked our plans. We would absolutely recommend this gem in the heart of Burnaby! The location is convenient for guests coming from all areas of the Lower Mainland and is very accessible to hotel accommodations, airport arrivals, taxi service etc.
Our family has already returned for an Anniversary Celebration in the restaurant!
A perfect place to plan your perfect day!
