Kate raved about her wedding at The Vistas
We just had our wedding and reception at The Vistas. It was beautiful! The food (as told to me by my guests) was the best they’ve had at a wedding in a long time. The staff was amazing from start (initial quote) to finish (day of, clean up).
We considered a number of places when looking for our venue, but The Vistas at Richland Golf Club won out because the food is great, the management was willing to work within our budget so we wouldn’t stress, and when the big day came, all was handled with grace and ease. I quite literally showed up, had a room to myself to get dressed and relax, and they worked with my vendors to have a smooth function that kept my guests happy and well fed and watered. Great experience, happy bride, happy wife, happy life.
