Riverside Gardens is located along the Mary Ingles Highway in Dayton, KY, next to Riverside Marina. This appropriately named wedding venue is situated on the south bank of the Ohio River, and has gazebos and gardens to host outdoor wedding ceremonies.
The West Lodge is the indoor reception area, with seating for 300, and a deck looking out at the Ohio and covered outdoor patio with seating for 200 more. It is a cavernous room, with steep, cathedral-like ceilings, wood paneling, and a small stage for the bridal party or an emcee, band, or DJ setup. The floor is carpeted outside of the dance floor next to the stage.
The venue and its grounds have a great view of the river. The gardens are beautifully maintained making a great backdrop in the warmer months. Alternatively, the outdoor deck can be used to host ceremonies.
