“We can’t thank George and the rest of his team at The River Room for the most amazing wedding day!!!!

From the moment we saw this venue we knew it was the ONE!!! The views were out of this world. We used the deck for our ceremony and the reception was inside. Take a look at the pictures to see just how beautiful it was!!!! We also loved that it was Downtown Wilmington which gave our guests freedom to explore during their stay as well. We planned our entire Wedding long distance which I was a little uneasy about at first. George made this extremely easy by giving us a list of preferred vendors. Each vendor we choose was AMAZING. We can’t thank the team at The River Room for their time and effort for making this truly the best day ever for us!!!! I would do it over in a minute and wouldn’t change a thing about it. “
