Our Wedding Exceeded Our Expectations

Our wedding was very recent (last night) and we cannot get over how seamlessly everything went for us. This venue is extremely comfortable and remains classy yet gives off a casual vibe, so you don't feel like you can't let loose. Everyone had a blast, the staff kept things in order while never spoiling the fun. The after-party at the lobster trap was particularly fun. Our guests raved about the food, atmosphere, and beautiful views during the ceremony & at sunset.

Literally perfect

Honestly there are no true words for how amazing Lauren and the whole team were at the Essex Room. They tackled everything and made sure we were covered for any additional hurdles that may have came our way. They know how to run a flawless wedding, and we are so happy we chose them.

So Much In One Venue

We have recommended and will continue to recommend The Essex Room to everyone we know! Our wedding was absolutely perfect! We were originally planned to celebrate in September 2020, but as many others we had to move the date by a year. Lauren helped us during every step of the way. She also went above and beyond to help with all of our decorations, and even put together our beautiful arch for us! We especially loved the Essex Room as they provided so many of the needed aspects of the wedding: Catering all of the events, the rehearsal dinner location, the ceremony location, cocktail hour location, the reception location and the after party location, and of course Lauren for day of. It made the celebration so much less stressful knowing we could trust one vendor with so much!

Moon Blossom Weddings Moon Blossom Weddings Wedding Videographers

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.

Creative Light Creative Light Wedding Decor & Lighting

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.

Some Fuzzy Some Fuzzy Wedding Videographers

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!!!
