  • I fell in love with the Rivermill and after much debate and a lot of alternative venue tours, we decided to go with the space that we loved, even though it was by far the most costly. The point person we met with, Kevin, isn’t super friendly or helpful. We didn’t get to do a taste testing, but we’re basically required to use his catering company. The food was OK, not bad, definitely not great. We also had planned to have a full cocktail hour that included free beer, wine and liquor, full bar. After the first hour of the reception, they were supposed to switch to open bar on beer and wine only. They didn’t. They forgot to do so and we hit our max budget within 2 1/2 hours. My Matron of honor realized what had happened and tried to talk to Kevin about the issue. He pretended like he didn’t know what she was talking about. She had to pull me and tell me the news. I had to track him down in the middle of my wedding reception to express my extreme frustration and ask him to make ... Read more

  • There are not enough words for us to thank Kevin, Starr and the entire Rivermill team for such an amazing wedding!! The venue is incredible and transforms to match any color palette! We had our ceremony outside, under the footbridge and it was breathtaking - no additional decor was needed because the brick buildings provided a stunning backdrop! The food was incredible - and the wedding package was so reasonably priced but offered SO MUCH! Our guests had a blast - dancing until the very last minute! Justin and I are so grateful for the work that Kevin put into making our day perfect! Bride to Bride, if you are still searching for your perfect venue, look no further - the Rivermill is definitely it!

  • We booked Rivermill for our Nov 10 wedding. It perfectly fit the vibe I was looking for and they were so accommodating with the decor look I wanted. They can also transform just outside the building into a cocktail hour setting (though it ended up being too cold/windy for us to utilize). Kevin was really nice and helpful throughout the planning process. They have complimentary valet and also were able to have a coat check for our guests. We also used the catering that comes with the venue, Liberty Lane, which was amazing and were able to create delicious apps, entrees, and late-night snacks!! Originally, we were planning to have our ceremony elsewhere, but last minute weather changes caused us to move indoors to Rivermill. They were able to section off part of the room for the ceremony and I gotta say, I think it turned out more perfectly than if we'd held the ceremony outside at our original spot!! Would highly recommend!

  • I am glad I chose Rivermill. Kevin was very kind, helping me throughout the planning process. He was also very responsive. I didn't have to worry about renting out chairs, tables, linens, because everything is included. I definitely recommen Rivermill as your wedding/other event venue!

  • My husband and I were so happy with our wedding at the Rivermill. This is actually the only venue we looked at but we knew from the first meeting that it was the perfect space for our wedding. Kevin and Starr were great to work with. We loved being able to customize the space and everything looked absolutely perfect the night of. We had an indoor ceremony on site that went over really well. There are so many beautiful spots in the area to take pictures. We received so many compliments on the food and the venue and all of our guests had a great time. We hope the be able to attend a Rivermill wedding as guests sometime! Would definitely recommend this venue to any couple getting married!

  • From the moment that my fiance and I walked into Rivermill, we knew that this was where we wanted to get married! This venue is so unique and fit our taste perfectly. The space has high ceilings, exposed brick, and is industrial yet warm at the same time. We worked with Britt, who was absolutely wonderful. She guided us in creating the perfect wedding and the Rivermill website was so helpful in finding local vendors (we used the website for cake, makeup, flowers, and a Justice of the Peace). Everytime we had a question, Britt responded immediately and she made it seem like no detail was too small to care about. There were at least 40 different colors of linen to choose from for table cloths and napkins, and the valet parking was a nice touch. Britt considered the size of our wedding to make a custom floor plan for the ceremony and reception. One thing that I didn't expect is the level of service that Rivermill provided the day of the wedding. Britt worked behind the scenes the... Read more

  • I had my wedding here on November 14th,2015 and all I can say is that this venue and the experience was nothing short of spectacular. The space itself is stunning and rich in character and charm. The brick walls, exposed beams and large windows provide a beautiful backdrop and create a warm atmosphere for any event but it was especially perfect for a wedding. I found that we didn't need much for decorations because the room itself is the epitome of industrial elegance. The room provided adequate space for the ceremony, tables for the 125 guests that were present, high top tables for cocktail hour, the band, photo booth, bar, and most importantly the dance floor! Kevin and Starr were exceptional to work with. They coordinated the whole day and eased my mind, making sure everything was in place which allowed me to have a stress free day at my own wedding! They provided endless options and I was really able to customize the day and bring to life the wedding exactly as I had envisioned. Ke... Read more

  • We loved our recent wedding at Rivermill and guests were raving too! Once we saw the space, we knew it was the one! We had both our ceremony and reception at Rivermill, which made it very convenient for all involved. If you are looking for a unique space that you can make you own, in a quaint town, this is it! Owners Kevin and Starr were extremely helpful and professional throughout the entire process. On the day of, they helped coordinate all of the details and things went down without hitch! Rivermill staff was on top of things from start to finish! We highly recommend this venue for its original space and helpful/professional staff.! Thanks for helping our vision come to life Rivermill!

  • We visited the Rivermill after a lengthy online search for reception venues. We loved the layout, the exposed brick, views of the river, and it's affordable! Starr and Kevin really know what they're doing - we worked almost exclusively with their preferred vendors, and each of them knew exactly what to expect for their planning purposes...we basically had to do zero coordination on our wedding day, which was a HUGE help (we've heard about numerous nightmares with wedding day coordination). They are very flexible with what you can do with the venue, offering a package deal, or just a venue rental...either way they are willing to offer suggestions to make your wedding fit your vision. All of the guests enjoyed the venue and the food, and we were happy we could just relax during our reception.

  • Our experience with The Rivermill far exceeded our expectations. Starr and Kevin worked with us for over a year to create a magical wedding that was uniquely ours, from food stations that our guests raved about to steering us toward fabulous vendors. We didn't have to worry about a thing on our wedding day, and the staff really took care of our guests. We wouldn't change a single thing and highly recommend The Rivermill to couples looking to get married on the NH seacoast.

  • We had our wedding reception at the Rivermill on November 1, 2014. Even a couple of weeks later, we are getting TONS of compliments about how beautiful the venue is. It is such a great place to get married and have your reception if you do not want the typical, cookie-cutter venue. I loved the exposed ducts and the brick walls; it gave such a modern and industrial-feel to it. We opted to have the uplighting and we were able to make use of the string lighting that drapes above the dance floor and it really added beautiful ambiance to the room! About 6 months away from my wedding date, I was informed that the Rivermill had been bought by the owner of Liberty Lane Catering, Kevin & his wife, Starr. As a bride who had been keeping track of every detail, of course I was nervous about the transition but everything was seamless! Any question or issue that I had addressed with the previous owner, Kevin was well aware of and was extremely prepared for our wedding. If I hadn't been t... Read more

  • We originally booked with the previous owners, only to find out that the venue had been sold to the new owners. The early planning phase was a little frustrating because we had a lot of questions due to the change in ownership and responses were not always quick or clear. We got two different answers from the owners regarding ceremony timing, which would have been nice to have them on the same page. As we got closer to the day, communication was much better and it was clear that things would run smoothly on the day of our wedding. Kevin was so thoughtful with his advice and assistance in the timing of the day. The venue itself is beautiful and it made for some amazing pictures.

  • Rivermill was the perfect fit for our wedding - the venue look, style, and location was all up our ally. We absolutely loved having our wedding there, and the ease of use with the ceremony and reception being in the same space was key! Rivermill knew what they were doing and got it all taken care of on the day of, so I never had to worry. However, there were slight concerns through the whole process. Communicating with them can be difficult and scheduling meetings to get things arranged wasn't the easiest. I will say that I wasn't 100% confident that everything was being taken care of on their end. In the end, they pulled it off brilliantly and I couldn't have been happier. However, just know that in choosing this fun and cool venue, that you might have to be a little more on top of your game.

  • This is such a great venue and a great team running it! If you are looking for a venue that you can make your own, this is the place to go. the one thing I knew I didn't want when planning my wedding was the typical hotel ballroom where you were forced into a certain mold for what the wedding would be. With exposed brick, flexibility on layout, meal format (sit down dinner, buffet, stations), even table linens - it was great to be able to go through and personalize step by step. The venue changed ownership in the middle of my planning but the transition was seamless and I never felt like the ball was being dropped. My only piece of advice when working with Rivermill, remember that they are professionals and they have a wedding/event almost every week (if not more), the response time may not be what you are expecting (I know I got anxious sometimes) but they know exactly what they are doing and will have everything running flawlessly on your big day. Thanks to Kevin, your family a... Read more
