Everything I could have asked for

Some time ago we stumbled across JWR setting up for a wedding. We ended up falling in love with the view and how beautiful everything looked so we booked them for our wedding ceremony (lawn) and reception (River Room). My wedding day was absolutely perfect. I cannot say enough good things about Molly, who managed our event. They were everything a bride could ask for; friendly, accommodating, fast to respond, and reassuring. They provided a Day of Coordinator, Cody, who took care of anything I might have worried about before I even noticed there was something to worry over. I cannot recommend them enough.

I don鈥檛 even know where to start! John Wright was the absolute perfect venue for our wedding in every way! We worked with Molly and she was timely and professional from day 1. She provided us accurate and detailed information and always made time for us. She was extremely timely with email responses and continuously went above and beyond for us. She is also a lot of fun to work with and is very sweet! She provided follow up to us to help keep us on track and worked hard with us to accommodate dietary restrictions on our guest list and make sure our seating chart was great. She was also very organized at the rehersal and helped it go easy and smoothly! On the day of our wedding we got to work Molly and also got to work with Cody. Cody was also great- he was absolutely everywhere and took care of everything we needed! He checked in, and allowed us to ask questions. He was a true professional. The whole team and staff was incredibly professional and made the day seamless. The venue itself is also gorgeous!! We couldn鈥檛 be happier- it was everything we hoped. We were able to get married with the river behind us, and during the reception, the event space was gorgeous and our guests also had access to a patio that overlooked the river. I cannot day enough good things and would highly highly recommend this venue! Great for ceremony and reception or just a reception!

Uniquely beautiful venue and location! Excellent food! Pleasant, helpful and accommodating staff which were great to work with. Awesome view of the Susquehanna River for ceremonies or just gazing from the balcony.

Every wedding or event I've photographed at John Wright Restaurant I am blown away by the professionalism of their staff. Everything always looks so beautiful and picture perfect. I look forward to seeing their wonderful food selection and displays. My clients rave about how delicious the food always is. I would consider John Wright Restaurant for my own personal events and gatherings. My husband and I also enjoy eating there together and checking out all of their live events. I would recommend that brides give this place a look. Take a moment to take in the beautiful view of the river and all of the other great picture locations in the Wrightsville area.
