    The Perfect Venue!

    Picking our venue was an easy decision. This was the first place we visited over a year before our wedding and we knew right away we wanted to get married here. The process was so easy and affordable compared to other venues we had researched. Jillian helped us book the venue and the process was seamless. While she was on maternity leave, Anna stepped in and made sure everything went perfect and smooth for our big day. We are very thankful for such a unique place we could call our wedding venue. Our guests were all pleasantly surprised and loved the venue as well. I definitely recommend this venue to anyone looking for a special wedding spot.

    A wonderfully unique venue

    From start to finish we were incredibly pleased with CRMII.

    We worked with Jillian initially and her knowledge about the space and friendliness was fantastic. After working with Jillian we started working with Anna who was such a pleasure to work with on the day of the event and after.

    The pricing structure is very transparent and I never felt like I was hoodwinked by it. The events packet that the museum provides is incredibly helpful as well. It helped us nail down our vendor team within a few weeks.

    Our guests LOVED the space. Having a January wedding it was great to have a space that allowed the guests to escape the load dance music or just be away from the reception hall.

    The venue truly allows you to be creative with your decor and how you set up the space. I would highly recommend using the Charles River Museum as part of your special day! We do not regret it in the slightest!

    Stunning Venue

    We still have guests talking about how amazing our venue was. I knew that I wanted something different for our wedding. I had no idea what we were in for when we walked into the CRMII. It was amazing. All exposed brick, old antique everything - it is what my dreams were made of. From day one, Jillian was wonderful to work with. We met with her and different vendors quite a few times and she was always flexible - even meeting us there in a snowstorm one day. The venue was made even more beautiful by adding greenery and candles. It was truly a dream wedding.

We love love love working with our neighbors at CRMII. Their space is so funky and clients always find a way to make it their own. Jill and her team are easy to work with, and always willing to lend a hand to our staff when needed. We have staffed dozens of events and weddings there, and each one has been unique and special. We always look forward to seeing what people come up with, and we're always happy to get the call to work there.
