From the moment that my fiance and I walked into Rivermill, we knew that this was where we wanted to get married! This venue is so unique and fit our taste perfectly. The space has high ceilings, exposed brick, and is industrial yet warm at the same time. We worked with Britt, who was absolutely wonderful. She guided us in creating the perfect wedding and the Rivermill website was so helpful in finding local vendors (we used the website for cake, makeup, flowers, and a Justice of the Peace). Everytime we had a question, Britt responded immediately and she made it seem like no detail was too small to care about. There were at least 40 different colors of linen to choose from for table cloths and napkins, and the valet parking was a nice touch. Britt considered the size of our wedding to make a custom floor plan for the ceremony and reception.
One thing that I didn't expect is the level of service that Rivermill provided the day of the wedding. Britt worked behind the scenes the entire day and evening, making sure everything went off without a hitch. She removed a lipstick stain from my fiance's lapel 5 minutes before the ceremony, guided our ring bearer golden retriever to the aisle so he knew where to go, cranked the a/c when I asked her to during the reception, replenished favor cookies, and took care of countless details before we even arrived! She guided us through the wedding timeline in such a calming way that we really appreciated. We are so happy that we had both our wedding and reception at this venue and were completely impressed with every aspect of our wedding experience at the Rivermill!

Spacious venue that you can do SO much with!
We booked Rivermill for our Nov 10 wedding. It perfectly fit the vibe I was looking for and they were so accommodating with the decor look I wanted. They can also transform just outside the building into a cocktail hour setting (though it ended up being too cold/windy for us to utilize). Kevin was really nice and helpful throughout the planning process. They have complimentary valet and also were able to have a coat check for our guests. We also used the catering that comes with the venue, Liberty Lane, which was amazing and were able to create delicious apps, entrees, and late-night snacks!! Originally, we were planning to have our ceremony elsewhere, but last minute weather changes caused us to move indoors to Rivermill. They were able to section off part of the room for the ceremony and I gotta say, I think it turned out more perfectly than if we'd held the ceremony outside at our original spot!! Would highly recommend!

I am glad I chose Rivermill. Kevin was very kind, helping me throughout the planning process. He was also very responsive. I didn't have to worry about renting out chairs, tables, linens, because everything is included. I definitely recommen Rivermill as your wedding/other event venue!
Stunning venue with exposed brick walls and views of the Cocheco River. The food is always amazing and Starr and Kevin make every wedding special.
Such a unique location in our historic town of Dover, NH! My couples who have tied the knot here have been extremely happy. The mill and surrounding area offer rich, character-driven photography opportunities.
Looking for that unique location in New England? Look no further! Nestled in the heart of Downtown Dover, not only will you find the space, you will also find a very caring and attentive staff. Britt and her crew at Rivermill make sure that no stone is left unturned and every detail is in place. From the initial consultation thru the last guest departing, Rivermill staff sees that everyone is taken care. Designing and planning with Rivermill on our team makes for a fabulous experience.
