The River Room was the perfect place for our wedding. We had about 80 guests, which filled the space nicely while keeping it intimate and spacious at the same time. Shannon, the planner working with us, was amazing and helpful during the day of the wedding to keep everything organized. We had a lot of compliments on the location and beauty of the space.
Shannon was of great help!!! Any questions I had or ideas she was readily available and helped tremendously through this process! Also the DJ David did a great job too!!
Shannon was awesome. The venue looked great, she stayed until the very end and over our time to help us pack away food and decor. She always made sure my husband and I had food and drink. She even helped me with my bustle. I couldn't ask for better.
Thank you River Room that it was a great reception! Shannon was awesome!!!
We loved having our wedding at the River Room! The venue is beautiful and it's location is truly ideal. Our friends and family from out of town loved all of the options that downtown Wilmington provides for before and after the wedding. We knew the River Room was perfect for us when we found out that we could have the look we were going for and the price we could afford. Also, we loved that we could choose our own caterer and bring our own alcohol/drinks. We had around 80 guests and everyone fit comfortably- not too crowded and not too spread out.
Shannon from the River Room was extremely helpful with our wedding! She was calm and patient and helped us work through the what-if's with rain in the forecast. She helped the entire day (adding baby's breath to our cake when we realized our cake stand was too small, setting up the guest book table, working with the rental company to help set up the ceremony space, communicating between the bride and groom, and to top it all off- she had a safety pin when we really needed one for my dress!).
Our DJ from DJ Professionals was awesome and helped us keep the party going. We had no idea about the order of events or how things should flow for the evening and he helped us through all of that.
We would highly recommend the River Room. You won't be disappointed!
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,

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!!
