    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!

    Micro-wedding at Riverway Clubhouse during pandemic

    If you're a couple trying to plan a wedding through the roller coaster ride of the pandemic, Riverway Clubhouse is the place to go.

    My husband and I found Riverway 4 weeks before our wedding after finding out that our original venue can no longer have us. From the initial email to after the wedding, the Bradley Binkley, the venue coordinator, was very upbeat and accommodating to us. He is always quick to respond to all of my questions, even on the days he is away. We felt we were taken care of.

    Our guests raved about how beautiful the venue is - both the floor to ceiling views from the inside and the pond outside the patio. The food is phenomenal and portion size plentiful. My parents who do not normally eat Western/Canadian cuisine loved it! The service staff were very polite and respectful of the physical distancing measures.

    We had the best micro-wedding one can ask for. We had to replan our wedding three times since the March lockdown and this version is the best (even compared to our pre-pandemic plans). We believe it was a blessing in disguise to have to change venues.

    Thanks to Bradley and the Riverway team for an amazing wedding. We look forward to celebrating our anniversaries at Riverway for future years to come.

    Beautiful venue, wonderful team, great food. Highly recommend!

    My husband and I looked at a few venues before a friend told us about this hidden gem. And as soon as we saw it at one of their open houses, we fell in love with it! Quite easily, this was among the top three best decisions we made. Brad Brinkley, Darren Fong and their team made the entire planning process a dream! They were flexible and did their best to accommodate our requests, which is more than I could say for some of the other venues we looked at.

    The space itself is absolutely breathtaking, with the grand entrance, exposed beams, outdoor patio area, and fountain. The venue is rustic, modern, classy and gives you the space you need for guests to be comfortable. Great value for money in my opinion.

    The food was incredible! We have guests still raving about how good the food was and my one regret as the bride was that I didn’t eat enough on the day of . We were able to make adjustments and customize things based on what we thought our guests would like, but their standard menu itself was excellent. They have definitely perfected this and as Brad himself told us, the food goes down very well!

    Another amazing feature we liked was being able to customize the bar. We could tell them exactly what drinks to serve, keep a bar limit, have wine served at the tables at certain times, close the bar for certain periods etc. This was an excellent way for us to manage our costs and make sure we weren’t surprised at the end of the night with the bar bill!
    The staff at Riverway are amazing! They were friendly, and professional throughout our planning process and made sure our guests were comfortable on the day of. Brad helped us for the first half of our planning process and Darren, who was our point-person for the second-half made sure our wedding was magical. He checked in on us on the wedding day to make sure the food was to our liking and was on-site the whole time to make sure everything ran smoothly.

    This venue gets booked up pretty quickly from what I know, so if it is available, BOOK IT NOW! Highly, highly recommend!
