About Us

Thank you for your interest in River's Edge Resort as the possible venue for your wedding. We have always enjoyed the privilege of sharing the magical moments of a wedding and feel that this is a truly important day for a special couple. We will do everything we can to set it off to a wonderful start.

As you will get to experience, the entire resort has benn meticulously designed to give our guests a welcoming feeling of home while enjoying excellent service from our courteous and attentive staff.  Our quaint cottages along the banks of the Chena River and the beautifully decoraged Miner's Hall which opens to a lovely courtyard will be the perfect setting that complements your wedding motif.  The hall is conveniently located on the ground floor of the Lodge and has approximately 2,000 square feet. It comfortably accommodates a party of up to 120 people.

On many occasions the wedding ceremony is held in the courtyard with the reception in the adjoining hall; a dance floor is also available at the reception to make the party even more fun and memorable.  To make sure that everything is just as you want, we will pre-set the room on the morning of your wedding day so you can leisurely add your decorations. In addition, if you wish to do a rehearsal or a photo session at our property, we will make our facilities available to you at no additional cost.

As for the meal, we have a wide array of plated and buffet dinners, appetizers, and beverage options for your consideration. In addition, our incredible chef can meet with you to create a magnificent meal specific for your party.  Together with our exceptional staff, you and your guests are certain to have a wedding ceremony & dining experience that will long be remembered and raved about.

An afternoon on a sunny riverbank exemplifies the best of Interior Alaska; with our trim little cottages standing in a grassy compound along the gentle Chena River, for the added convenience of your guests from out-of-town, we will offer a special rate as part of your wedding package. Inside, each light, airy cottage is an excellent standard hotel room, with high ceilings and two queen beds.  Outside, they're like a little village, where guests can sit on a patio, to watch the river go by, soak up the midnight sun and socialize.  And because we always keep you in mind, we will provide a complimentary suite for the bride and groom including a bottle of champagne on ice to set the mood for an enchanted evening.

We would love to help make your wedding day "just perfect".
