Following a traditional church ceremony, Angel and Osby held their reception here at The River Room on November 11, 2017. Decor was minimal, with white linens and purple accents, but the sweetheart table was absolutely the center of attention – as it should be. A backdrop of white and purple drapery and large floral arrangements […]

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. “

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

 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!
