The ABC State Meeting was held at River Landing Sunday August 23, 2015. Of course the clubhouse was clearly beautiful from the outside and it was lovely inside but I was not prepared for the elegance and beauty that I was shown when Madi McDougald took us on an in-depth tour of the venue.

We started the tour at the River Lodge which is a beautiful (and affordable!) location for an outdoor wedding. You wouldn’t believe the specials available when booking this venue! 

 There’s even an enclosed dock looking out over the water! Past couples have used this as a designated kids’ area to keep them safe from playing too close to the water! Set up activities and fun foods down here to make sure the children attending your event are having a blast while you and your guests don’t have to worry about keeping them out of trouble!

Inside the Mad Boar we found lots of more intimate rooms that would be perfect for rehearsal dinners and smaller ceremonies. 

One of the ABC members touring with us used “Moulin Rouge” to describe a gorgeous room with red lighting fixtures and a detailed gold ceiling. It really was a warm and intimate feeling with the perfect hint of mystery.

My personal favorite wedding spot was part of the Grand Ballroom. You have the option of getting married by the lake downstairs which is simply beautiful. The bride even gets to make a grand entrance down this staircase!


If the weather isn’t cooperating with you that day, renting this space comes included with a  covered balcony overlooking the lake. It’s still the same gorgeous backdrop with the added plus of overhead coverage. But the perks don’t stop there!

There is a beautiful space inside that also comes with the (incredibly affordable) purchase of the Grand Ballroom! If you don’t want to get married or hold your event outdoors, you have this huge space inside to hold it! This way you can use the indoor cocktail hour space or the balcony for cocktail hour!

The possibilities at River Landing are endless and there really is something for everyone. It has the look and feel of million-dollar elegance without the million dollar price tag!
