If you have ever taken a stroll on the Downtown Wilmington Riverwalk, there is no way you missed us! We are best known for our historical charm, hosting beautiful weddings & events, and having a gorgeous deck overlooking the USS North Carolina Battleship.

 

 

 

 

It’s no secret we have the best views in town and having a desirable rustic look, but our interior was just begging for some love! Our owner George , had a vision, he wanted to bring out the historical features in the venue while making the space more functional. With this being said, there were some pretty big changes that needed to take place!

 

 

So what are these changes?

As soon as you step into the venue look up, you will notice pine beams running across the ceiling, look down and you will see the clean look of a new white epoxy flooring. If you have ever visited us pre-reno you probably would have found the layout to be, well awkward. Now we have relocated the bathrooms to the back of the venue, opening up a lot of space for a dance-floor or more tables! We were lacking that much needed space for our brides to relax and do last minute touch-ups before seeing everyone. Our quaint Bridal Suite is the perfect place for that!

 

Given these changes, the venue is completely transformable for every wedding theme that can be dreamed of! If you haven’t seen us in person yet, you are missing out! Call or email us today why we are perfect for you!

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. “

 Everything turned out just the way I wanted. They did such an amazing job. The location was just beautiful. I would for sure recommend everyone to have their wedding here!

Couldn’t have chosen a better place!

We ended up being worried about rain the morning of and the staff were completely on top of it and got reception tables rearranged and the ceremony space set up inside for us. It was awesome that we were able to work with all of our favorite vendors since the river room doesn’t restrict which vendors were allowed to work with. And on top of that, the space is absolutely beautiful. We actually booked before the remodel so we were a little bit nervous about how things it was awesome that we were able to work with all of our favorite vendors sense the river room doesn’t restrict which vendors were allowed to work with. On top of all that, the space is absolutely beautiful both inside and the amazing view! We actually booked before the remodel so we were a little bit nervous about how things would change, but it looked even better on our wedding day than when we booked. Booking/contracts/payment were all east to understand and super accessible and I never had an issue getting my (many) questions answered in the almost 16 months between booking and wedding day. I would recommend the River Room to anyone looking for a wedding ceremony or reception venue (or both)!

We absolutely loved having our wedding and reception at the River room!
