Why Book Your Next Event At Rocky River Plantation?

Updated: Apr 18, 2019

Rocky River Plantation

When planning a wedding, bride and grooms have the exclusive opportunity of opening the door to the bright and beautiful wedding world. While exploring the vast varieties of wedding vendors from floral arrangements to the venue that they will host their big day, the possibilities seem endless. Yet, those possibilities can turn into headaches when it comes to deciding on which vendor, color pallet, or even number of guests you want. That is why we, at Rocky River, wanted to explain a little about what it looks like when you book with us. We understand the stresses of planning a wedding, and hopefully after reading what we have to offer we can relieve some of that stress for you!

The Rocky River Plantation is a venue quite like no other. We have many qualities that set us apart from other venues and it begins with our history. Built in 1913, Rocky River was originally used as a dairy farm. If you have ever lived in Anderson at any time you may simply know our venue as, “the house on the hill.” Today, that “house on the hill” is used for weddings, birthdays, celebrations, and much more.

So, why book with Rocky River? Well, from its first look providing a perfect blend of southern charm and elegant style it is hard to say, “why not!” But, the venue does not stop there. Rocky River owns over sixty acres of land, with over twenty-five of it that is manicured every week. We also offer the Bootlegger Barn located to the left of the Plantation Home. The Bootlegger Barn can be used to host a wedding, reception, or both!

Let us take you on a tour of the inside of the Plantation starting with the grand entrance. We will start in our main ballroom, cornered with four white columns. Stepping through the original hardwood floors, you will enter two additional rooms in the front of the home used to cater any needs for your wedding or event. Next, we have our “family room” that comes with two sleek couches and a coffee table used as a seating area. As well as a bay-window nook with custom crafted cushions that looks out to our property.

Rocky River Plantation Groomsman Suite

Another quality that sets us apart from other venues, is our Groomsman Suite. Step through the doors of a modern styled room designed for men of men. With a grey interior and wooden décor used to accent the room, any man will feel like a true king when sitting in our suite. If that doesn’t have you sold, then possibly our Apple TV will. If that still doesn’t have you sold, then let us mention that any client that books with us receives a complimentary whiskey bar in the Groomsman Suite with whiskey provided by Palmetto Distillery. All men are encouraged to kick back, take a shot, and enjoy the wedding day! (We respect dry weddings and in doing so offer a drink or soda of choice from the groom.)

Rocky River Plantation Bridal Suite

Now, brides let us take you to our bridal suites. We know just how crazy a wedding day can be and that is why we offer not one, but two bridal suites for our clients. As the men receive a complimentary whiskey bar, you receive a complimentary mimosa bar! As well as that you will enter the rooms of two of the most elegant and fashionable suites found in the South. In our main bridal suite hangs a grand mirror perfect for photographers to capture the moment a bride has the person of their choice helping zip or button the back of the dress. Rocky River Plantation also offers a one of a kind brunch suite, a second-story balcony, and a full kitchen with access to a stainless steel refrigerator, an oven, and a restaurant sized ice machine.

Our entire staff at Rocky River are truly in the business of making dreams come true. We love building connections with all our clients and making sure they are always provided the best service.
