Riviera Caterers is one our favorite venues in all of New York City. It has top notch quality service and gorgeous venue. The outdoor area is perfect for wedding ceremonies weather permitting if not the main ballroom is made into the ceremony location. The chairs and aisle is set in the middle of the dance floor. The outdoor waterfall is the perfect backdrop for family photo sessions and reception photographs. It is located in the Brooklyn area of New York City which is close to Queens, Manhattan and Staten Island. We capture several weddings a year at Riviera Caterers, and love all that it has to offer. Pat the owner is such a pleasure to deal with. The food is magnificent and my personal favorite dinners they serve are the steak and shrimp. The staff is always on point with unparalleled service to the bride and groom, bridal party, family and friends as well as the wedding vendors. So whenever anyone asks about the Riviera, we are always raving about them how can you not. We love being a Riviera Caterers Wedding Photographer. The reception area has lavish chandeliers for a rich and beautiful & creative wedding reception photos.
The venue is modern, it went through a renovation after Sandy and is better than ever.
This photo was taken during the couples 1st dance rendition of Dirty Dancing's "Time of My Life. " at the Riviera Caterers reception. The dance was choreographed by one of their friends who is a dance instructor. They did an amazing job with the dance and landed the lift and got their entire bridal party involved just like it was in the original movie.
Riviera Caterers is a wedding venue that has so many wonderful memories for our couples. We previously captured another wedding for a different couple Lily & Alex who had the most memorable vows. Watch here:
What an incredible day! What an incredible couple! We started off the day with the girls at the Couture Beauty Salon before heading back to Lily's parents house for her to change into her dress. Even though we were a little behind schedule Lily and Alex were totally relaxed and happy to finally see one another before heading off to Snug Harbor for pictures, we even got to do an aerial shot of the bridal with our drone. It was a very hot day but they were such good sports about it. The ceremony at the Riviera was officiated by Lily's friend who did an awesome job. The beautiful vows exchanged by Lily and Alex made the guests and myself both laugh and cry. An all around fun reception, the dancing, the games...it was perfect. Thank you Lily and Alex for choosing us to capture your day! We wish you both all the happiness!
