If you're looking for magic, look no further
We just got married on 11/16/19 and 6th & River was everything we dreamed of and more. Kathrine & Laura were there for anything we needed and went above and beyond for us and our bridal party. They helped us with any questions we had, helped put together the space how we dreamed of it being, and were there all night to attend to anything/anyone that needed help. We used both the Common room and the main room for our cocktail hour/ reception and people couldn't get over how the rooms just flowed perfectly. The rustic vibes from the wood floors, big sliding barn doors, brick walls- we couldnt have asked for more. They have truly turned something old into something new in the middle of Honesdale. If you're looking for a magical wedding space, this is IT!!!Sent on 11/22/2019
6th & River's reply:Felicia, Jake and families, THANK YOU for believing in us before we were even finished with this project! Thank you for bringing your love and energy to the space and sharing in your best, beautiful day. It was our honor!

6th & River is Re-Inventing the Wedding Experience
Once we saw this building, we were blown away. It is a renovated industrial warehouse with floor to ceiling brick walls, gorgeous windows around the entire room, vaulted ceilings with modern chandeliers. The room doesn’t take much to look beautiful; we loved the character and simplicity of it. And SO much room for everything we wanted. We utilized the connected space for cocktail hour and the bigger space for our ceremony/reception. The bridal suite is GORGEOUS with plenty of room to get ready with your bridal party. It is also located in the cutest downtown area with TONS of photo opportunities like this cool bridge right outside, a train down the street and park close by! So many Air BNBs are around the downtown area! We all stayed at Ledges Hotel which is beautiful hotel and breathtaking views of waterfalls right outside. Katharine, the owner of this venue, is so down to earth, easy going and has a great energy about her. It was such a pleasure working with her and her staff. She was so kind to me and my family. I didn’t feel like just a number to her, she truly cared about how my wedding was going to unfold. Katharine is super responsive which was one of my top priorities when looking for a venue. We were able to have our dog with us the entire night which was a dream!! She also is an incredible florist and did a beautiful job on all of our flowers!! The building also has Rustic Charm Vintage Rentals which was SO convenient to have this all in the same area. Katharine and her staff went ABOVE AND BEYOND, no detail went unnoticed. She was flexible and accommodating throughout the entire process. 6th & River is a hidden gem, I would do it all again in a heartbeat.Sent on 02/28/2020

WOW! WOW! WOW! Industrial Chic Wedding
Are you looking for a gorgeous, industrial, warehouse space to host your big day? This is your venue.
The team: Katherine and her team at 6th & River are amazing. They do everything in their power to make your day perfect. They are quick to respond via email, text, call. They are very flexible in room set up and design. They are super hands on, even during your event. What I loved most about the team? They make you feel special and that you are not just another number to them. They go above and beyond and I am so grateful!
The venue: This venue has so much character. There is stunning exposed brick throughout along with exposed beams, and a stunning wood barn door separating the large reception area and an optional smaller room to rent. There is a loft for the wedding party to get ready in, or use the space as a lounge during the wedding. There is a full industrial kitchen to rent downstairs for caterers. Additionally, you can rent another room through Rustic Charm to use as a cocktail hour. Outside they have a great bridge over the river to take photos. My husband and I did our first look there and it was magical. The best part about this venue is how many options one has. You must bring in all your own vendors (caterer, photographer, rentals, bartenders etc), which provides a ton of flexibility. Katherine also has Fox Hill Farms which does stunning floral arrangements!
The value: Super affordable! With so many options and so much flexibility, it's easy to create an affordable, yet upscale wedding.
Things to note: There are not many large hotels in Honesdale, Pa or the area. But don't let this stop you! We rented buses to transport our guests to Scranton. OR you can look to rent Ledges Hotel in Hawley, PA or rent houses on Lake Wallenpaupack. There are many options!
In conclusion, if I had to do it all over again, I wouldn't do it any differently. The team, and the venue, made my industrial chic wedding dreams come true!Sent on 01/24/2020
