The River Room was AMAZING

The River Room was our perfect location for our wedding day. It was an amazing representation of my husband and I - the beautiful exposed brick, the white walls for countless design ideas, lots of natural light from the big windows, the cozy string lights, the river view and even the quaint deck space we used for pictures and cocktail hour. Paige was so charming and nice to work with. All of our guests couldn't stop complimenting the space. Our wedding was 64 people and it wasn't too big or too small. The tables fit perfectly throughout the room even with all of our food stations and DJ. My favorite part of the venue was the bridal suite - big enough for me and 4 of my bridesmaids/man to relax in before the start of the day. We are so happy we chose the River Room - it was the happiest day of our lives.

Gorgeous Customizable Waterfront Venue

The River Room is a gorgeous events space in downtown Wilmington, right on the river in the heart of the action. It's a blank slate and really perfect for couples that want to make a space their own. The venue rental fee is affordable and includes tables & chairs and a few other essential items, plus the outdoor deck can be added on for a nominal fee. We were glad we added it because guests loved hanging out there, and it was the perfect place for the cocktail hour, giving the team time to flip the space between the ceremony and reception. The max is 100 people but it would be tight with 100, you'd have to break down 2 tables in order to make room for dancing. We had 82 people and it was perfect. The team is attentive and easy to work with. Highly recommend for smaller weddings!

Dream come TRUE!

Words cannot describe how grateful we are for Brittanie and the River room team. It鈥檚 not easy to dream of your wedding day your whole life and put your trust in a stranger to help you made that day everything you鈥檝e ever wanted. The River room team and Brittanie went above and beyond to make this day better than anything I could鈥檝e have dreamed about. Our night went flawlessly and the stress of all the months of planning just rolled right off of us as soon as we arrived to the venue because we knew we were in the best hands. Their constant communication and help was more than I could鈥檝e ever asked for. I am so beyond grateful for the River room team and Brittanie for making our big day so special. If you are looking for a wedding venue I would highly recommend the dreamy River room on the beautiful River front and to hire Brittanie for all of your planning needs. 馃グ馃挄馃槏
