RW Casino is gorgeous. I had my wedding there last weekend. Heather Manning is absolutely wonderful and was a pleasure to work with! She was extremely knowledgable and really helped me start off my wedding planning! Honestly, if you want a romantic, vintage like wedding, this is the perfect location. Our guests were amazed by the beauty of the building and how the decor I chose went with everything. It was lovely. I wish I could have my exact wedding once a year! 🙂
