Looking for a venue in the north shore of Massachusetts? The Essex Room is it. As a wedding videographer, they have so many great scenic spots to film in and set the scene for a beautiful day. Their staff is extremely attentive and helpful to anything you may need assistance with whether you're a vendor or potential client. I would highly recommend to any couple looking for a nautical themed wedding near the water in the renowned north shore.
The Essex Room is the perfect venue on the North Shore for wedding receptions and special events. The beautiful views capture the very essence of New England. Maureen, Donna, Norman, and all the staff are wonderful to work with and do everything they can to make each event perfect. The room takes light beautifully, allowing us to transform the mood and feel dramatically. The Essex Room is by far one of our favorite venues to light.
The Essex Room is a hidden gem. I filmed a wedding there last fall and was blown away not only by the style and area (directly behind Woodmans Grill!) but also the staff and people who worked to make the couples night at The Essex Room one for the books. As a vendor I was treated with utmost care and I have been anxiously waiting for my next couple who tells me I'll be traveling to the Essex Room with them. And don't even get me started on how gorgeous Golden Hour is there. The sunset was breath taking and made for incredible shots. I highly recommend considering the Essex Room in your pursuit of a reception venue!!!
