The River Room is a beautiful venue directly on the riverfront, much closer than we could even tell from the photos, and the staff was so wonderful and accommodating. Would very highly recommend this venue for a wedding party of about 100, as that seems to be the magic number for comfort and space, though the max is around 125.
Absolutely beautiful venue at a great price with the flexibility to make it what you want. Would highly recommend.
We knew when we visited the River Room that it was the place we wanted to get married. The location was perfect. Shannon was awesome and did everything possible to make sure our day was perfect. We can't thank her enough for the best day ever.
Always a pleasure working with The River Room. Very Organized and the space is always ready for any Event, tables and chairs available and will have them in any order you choose to have. (Just need linens bought in) View is gorgeous and just the perfect place for any Event. Love this location, always have a great time for sure..
We are so blessed that we were able to have our wedding at the River room on July 3, 2015. Everything was perfect. the ceremony was on the deck and the reception was inside. Melissa was my wedding coordinator and they worked well as a team to make my wedding truly unforgettable.
We highly recommend The River Room.
Thank you, sincerely,
Marc & Taneia Lamar
If you are having a gathering of any sort the river room is the place to go! It's beautiful and right on the water and not as expensive as other places. The staff is super friendly and helps with any sort of problem that you could have. When I had my party the hostess was super helpful with getting out al of the tables that we needed and making sure we had everything that we needed. You will not regret choosing the river room.
The RiverRoom was the second venue we viewed and we fell in love with it. We loved the brick walls and the location. Our guests ventured to get ice cream from a new ice cream shop during the reception. It was the perfect cool off treat for the hot night. Melissa was so nice and accommodating during the planning process. She even stayed in touch with my mom, who lives in Florida. The RiverRoom helped make our wedding vision come to life. It was perfect.
I don't think I can say enough good things about the River Room. Melissa is extremely helpful, and always quick with a response on any issue. The space itself is wonderful; very easy to set up in a number of different ways, great floor for dancing, and the views are just beautiful. It is an incredible deal, as well.
Melissa is the sweetest and most helpful woman when it comes to wedding advice! I love the RiverRoom so much! The brick interior was just what I was looking for, and the riverfront view was just icing on the cake. My meetings with Melissa were so helpful and she made me feel so relieved when I spoke to her about my plans. She knows so much about weddings and everything that goes into them. I would highly recommend this location!
We had a 4th of July wedding on the deck and reception inside! It was setup and ready to go when we arrived to walk down to be married. Melissa was our day of coordinator and helped things run smoothly! Our big day was truly a success! We couldn't have had a better venue to have such wonderful memories made!
We had our wedding at The River Room on May 10th, with a deck ceremony and reception! Melissa worked as our day of coordinator, to help us create our perfect day! Melissa was extremely helpful throughout the whole process and offered amazing suggestions, and was always there to answer all of my questions. We were so happy with the end result, it was everything that I wanted and had pictured in my mind! We would definitely reccomend having your wedding here and definately having Melissa work as your coordinator!!
Beautiful venue. Intimate size. Great staff. Perfect for our rehearsal dinner.
The River Room proved to be a great place to hold our small ceremony and reception. It's a blank canvas as far as the interiors go--which is exactly what we wanted. We really wanted to find somewhere we could decorate to really make it a true reflection of us, which I think we were able to accomplish here. The building itself is in a great location with it being right on the river, and the exposed brick really offers a lot of character and depth. If we ever had a question, it was answered promptly, and we didn't have any bumps along the way! We had our ceremony on the deck, which was very beautiful and we were really able to embrace the beautiful scenery. Our reception was inside, which was nice--to have it all in one place. We did bring in our own beer and wine, which saved a lot of money. I think the venue was very nice and we were able to do our wedding very affordable-y, which was important to us.
We had our rehersal dinner at the riverroom, it was a wonderful expierence , Mellisa was very helpful and prompt at returning emails and phone calls as we were scheduling from long distance. The actual facility has beautiful views of the Cape Fear and by candle light and string lights makes a very romantic venue. The natural brick , the fact that it is in middle of Wilmington's historical district made this a memorable venue .
The RiverRoom is absolutely beautiful, very pretty view and makes for some awesome pictures. Melissa who is the coordinator was such a pleasure she is full of ideas I wouldn't have never imagined! All I can say is amazing!
From the moment I saw The RiverRoom I knew that was the place I wanted to be married. The room is just beautiful from the exposed brick and the windows overlooking the river you can't ask for more. After speaking with Brian and Melissa I knew we had found our location. We used the all inclusive package they offer which was absolutely perfect for us. They have something for every budget. Melissa was beyond awesome to work. She thought of everything down to the smallest details that would make our day perfect!!
Our guests told us all night long what a great time they were having. The food from Middle of the Island Catering was incredible. Adam with DJ Professionals did an amazing job with the music which I completely left up to him. We had people on the floor all night long. I was thrilled with everything all the vendors did. So big thank you's also go to Amy with 1 of 13 photography, Jamie with ETC Party Rentals, Matt with the videography. I could go on and on about the whole experience but you just need to go and see for yourself as well. My groom was very hands off with the planning as he wanted me to have everything I wanted LOL in fact he hadn't even seen the location until that day. When we got in to the reception even he said to me that it was more than he could have believed and that he felt it was perfect for US!
Thank you to everyone at The RiverRoom for making my day completely stress free.
