Castle by the river bank.


Castle by the river bank.


Chateau Rive is the perfect wedding venue for couples who appreciate timeless beauty, old-world stone, and the romance of an ancient European setting nestled in a secluded downtown oasis of grass and lush vegetation, just steps from the river.

The name Chateau Rive essentially means “castle by the river bank.” Your castle awaits.

Whether your dream is a picture-perfect princess wedding, a period Victorian or Goth event, or a modern, elegant affair, the character and charm Chateau Rive offers will take your event to that mystical place where dreams come to life.



During warmer months, Chateau Rive offers an outdoor meadow for your ceremony in our beautifully landscaped meadow ensconced between vintage brick on the east side and natural rock formation on the right. The river to the south, and a bridge connecting to a four-story staircase on the north provide plenty of photo opportunities to commemorate your special day.



Inside Chateau Rive you are greeted with ancient stone décor, extra tall ceilings, and architectural features reminiscent of an ancient era. Taking the elevator from the main floor of the Flour Mill down four levels to the very bottom, you’ll walk through a brick archway and see a room that has been Spokane’s best-kept secret for 100 years. With natural daylight, high ceilings, thick stone walls, adjustable chandeliers, and ambience unlike any other venue, Chateau Rive offers a choice spot for up to 250 guests.

Tables, chairs and linens are provided as part of the package as well as chairs for the outside wedding site.

Since we are located on the North side of Riverfront Park the venue is ripe for striking childhood memories and banking memories for future visits to the area. Chateau Rive is centrally located, with plenty of nearby hotels, parking lots, and street parking. If you need a quick gift or suffer a snack attack the Flour Mill is home to several unique restaurants and shops.



Of course, no wedding is complete without food and drink. Our award-winning caterers can meet every culinary need and honor all budgets. No detail is overlooked, and we pride ourselves on providing not merely delicious menu options, but a stunning visual aesthetic. We love making our food stations photo-worthy and simply irresistible to appreciative guests.
