Absolutely wonderful experience! What a beautiful space and team to work with. Weddings can be extremely stressful but Katharine and her team were there for us every step of the way. I can’t thank them enough for all their hard work and care they took to make our special day special. I would highly recommend 6th and River to any bride and groom!Sent on 10/07/2019

6th and River is the perfect wedding location!
If you don't have time to read this entire review, just know this: having our wedding at 6th and River was the best decision we made during wedding planning.Sent on 10/10/2019
My (now) husband and I were the first official wedding at 6th and River and we can honestly say that our wedding experience could never have been the same anywhere else.
The first thing we fell in love with about 6th and River was its owner, Katharine. We wanted desperately to work with someone who cared about the day just as much as we did, and who didn't treat us like just another date on the calendar - that is Katharine to a T.
The second best thing about 6th and River is its character. There is nothing cookie cutter about the history, charm, and brick walls of this beautiful building, and Katharine and her team really give you the freedom to make it your own.
Because of Katharine's relationship with another vendor in the building (Rustic Charm Rentals - love them!), she was able to put together a package that gave us and our guests an entire experience throughout the day.
We had one room for the ceremony with floor to ceiling barn doors that my dad and I walked through, a beautiful cocktail hour room with tons of overflow space, and a giant reception room that the ceremony room was turned over to be a part of. The flow from space to space was perfect, and gave our guests plenty to do and see without needing to leave the building.
The wall to wall windows let natural light pour into the rooms even with bad weather, the bridal suite was a wonderful place to relax and get ready, and the river right next door served as a beautiful backdrop for photos.
Don't think twice about having your wedding at 6th and River.
6th & River's reply:Can’t thank you enough for taking the chance and being the first ‘official’ wedding! Couldn’t have asked for a better and more special family to work with from start to finish! Much love from all of us!
