Venue Spotlight: Riverwood Barn & Amphitheater
Our first Venue Spotlight! The Riverwood Barn and Amphitheater is located in Durant, Oklahoma. It’s actually East of Durant, more in the Blue area, right off Hwy. 70. There is a barn, house, and outdoor amphitheater area. Everything is brand new, as of the writing of the blog, there have only been a few weddings there. The house contains both bridal and groom suites, with a central kitchen area. The barn has four large roll up doors, two on each side, and two back rooms for storage, food prep, etc. There is also a small loft area for a DJ, bouquet toss, etc. The outdoor amphitheater is a short walk down the back lawn and set against the forest backdrop. The stone seating and altar area make for a beautiful ceremony setting. The best thing about this venue is the space! Here your guests have room to move and mingle across multiple settings. And there is even a firepit! You get a 3-day rental period, Friday-Sunday, so plenty of time for setup and cleanup.
The day I took these photos they were still cleaning up from a reception inside the barn, so I didn’t take many photos of the inside. Enjoy! It is a beautiful venue!
