Jones River Trading, and their exclusive caterer Plymouth Bay Catering, provided the perfect setting and service for our reception. They were very responsive to phone calls in the planning stages. The venue is beautifully decorated and has great seating areas right along the dance floor. This is a venue where you can get away without any extra decorating. The food was excellent and they allowed us to make adjustments easily, you aren't stuck to the "official" menu. Overall great value and highly recommended.

We recently had our wedding at this venue, and could not have been happier. Plymouth Bat Catering catered the event, and it was amazing. The venue was exquisite, the food was delicious, the staff was helpful, attentive and very friendly, and the price was very reasonable. We would highly recommend this venue to anyone looking for a beautiful setting for their wedding.

We had our wedding at the Jones River Trading post in December, 2014. We actually had a really hard time finding a venue that would work for us in the winter on Cape Cod (where we were based) and ultimately decided that Jones River would be the best spot for us. The interior is so unique and really inviting. We were planning the wedding from out of town and my husband’s parents had all the in-person dealings with the venue, specifically Mary, the on-site coordinator. She was great at answering all our questions and working with us extensively beforehand to sort out the menu, schedule, decorations, etc. We decided to to a lot of things ourselves and they were perfectly accommodating; for example, we brought pies from our favorite bakery in Woods Hole instead of having wedding cake (and were not charged any sort of fee for that--one of the things we really liked about this venue), my husband’s family made all the centerpieces and Mary’s team helped set them up, and we brought lots of additional materials for our ceremony backdrop and a Photo Booth. Our friends even brought in a 100lb + hand-built chuppah and set it up in the venue. At first I was really sad that we would have to have an indoor wedding (due to our work schedules the wedding had to be in the winter), but once I saw the venue all set up I realized that I couldn’t have dreamt up a warmer, more inviting atmosphere. This venue also has a lot of space that we didn’t utilize for getting ready, etc, but I can see that being valuable for other couples. In addition, we had clear skies so we were able to take some gorgeous photos in the back of the venue on the river, and across the street in the wooded area--the scenery around here is so beautiful. Mary was great about keeping us on schedule the entire evening, and everything went perfectly. Everyone had plenty to eat and our guests were all happy with the food, especially the clam chowder bar. Overall it was an overwhelmingly positive experience!

I got married at the Jones River Trading back in November, 2014. My guests still say it was one of the best weddings they've ever been to. This place is a hidden gem! When you get married here, you are the ONLY event that is held for that particular day. A lot of places only allow certain time slots and other hold more than one wedding reception at a time at their facilities. It is a gorgeous mill that has been restored right on the Jones River. They have an in house catering company that they work with and his food is absolutely out of this World! I chose to work with them through one of their wedding packages...meaning they connected with my DJ, my florist, my limo driver, my cake lady, helped me pick out my wedding invitations, everything! And every single vendor was amazing!!!! I also was able to work with Mary, their wedding coordinator (and Andrew who is also awesome!). Mary is a class act and an absolute professional. She is there for you from day one and helps you plan the day of your dream. They are extremely flexible with everything and any special request you may have (from a special meal, to setting up large and heavy decor) they will go the ends of the Earth to make it happen. Weddings can be pricey and stressful...But thanks to Jones River Trading, my husband and I had a wedding that people still talk about! Many thanks to everyone at Jones River Trading and Plymouth Bay Catering for all you do!

We loved having our wedding at the Jones River! My partner and I weren't the most organized people beforehand, but Mary and her team were more than happy to work with us to make sure everything flowed perfectly. I was so impressed by how flexible they were! The venue itself is gorgeous - we had our ceremony outdoors in the most picturesque setting you could ask for, and the reception hall is incredible. The floor begs to be danced on! We received so many compliments on the food and the space - none of which we personally deserved, but instead should go directly to Jones River! I knocked value down a half star because we felt the alcohol to be a bit more expensive than we planned on, but overall this place is an incredible value for the money! Our eternal thanks to the team for making our wedding such an incredible experience!! Highly recommended to anyone looking for a space to do a beautiful, quick ceremony and an elegant but FUN dinner and dance party afterward :)

I had a very positive experience with Jones River Trading for my wedding reception. While I was a little weary that I didn't know who my day of coordinator would be ahead of time, everything ended up working out perfectly. Andrew was my day of coordinator and he went above and beyond. He did a great job decorating the room with my directions, since I wasn't able to get in there to do it myself because of a wedding the night before. On the day of the wedding he was invaluable. He kept the evening running smoothly and kept us abreast of everything during the night. He even sewed a button on a groomsman during a wardrobe malfunction! He kept me calm, even a couple of days before the wedding when I dropped my decor off. Not an easy thing to do with a type-A personality. Thank you, Andrew.

The wait staff, and bartenders were also great. And the food, as you will read from other reviews, was good and hot! The guests raved about the buffalo mac & cheese appetizers. The staff was also attentive and made sure that the bridal party was was fed and served during pictures. I will say that the passed sangria that we offered during cocktail hour was a HUGE hit with the guests, but the glasses were small (like maybe 4 oz.?) and we ended up paying way more for it than we thought we would. Not really the fault of the venue -- I guess our guests are lushes! And it was really good.

Lastly, the venue itself is just a really great place to have a wedding. I was admittedly a little nervous about the "kitschy" decor, but it ended up adding character to the evening. I liked that it wasn't just a ballroom at a country club or hotel. It gave guests things to comment on and look at during cocktail hour!! The dance floor is enormous, the A/C worked fantastically on our 90 degree day, and the bathroom facilities were ample. We received many compliments from guests on the venue. I think Jones River is very quickly becoming a popular wedding venue and I can see why.

I fell in love with the unique atmosphere and eclectic feel of this venue. We did not want a country club wedding and jones river gave us a special way to make our big wedding (170 guests) still feel intimate. The staff was very kind and helpful. I did feel there was a lapse in communication; I was always the person initiating conversations (deadlines, set up, etc.) and there was some confusion with information on the final bill. Other than this detail, our wedding experience was perfect and our guests LOVED the venue just like we did! They offer a unique, no stress, affordable option for your wedding!

Jones River was my first and only choice for a reception venue. Not only is the facility absolutely gorgeous & boutique, but the price is very reasonable. Plymouth Bay Catering is the company that JRT works exclusively for catering - and I only have good things to say about them. The woman who coordinated the event made the experience wonderful and stress-free (which as a bride, is SO important). The food was delicious and the venue is incredible at night.

We had our wedding at the Jones River Trading company a few weeks ago, and it was great. I loved the building and space, it was set up nicely, and Mary (the wedding coordinator) was incredibly helpful. I didn't realize the value of having someone like her there until the day of our rehearsal.

We had our ceremony indoors and everything was taken care of in terms of moving chairs and tables around. Our guests loved the venue, and we had a very fun wedding there.

We just had our wedding at Jones River Trading and what a wonderful place to have a wedding. Working with Mary, the wedding coordinator, made the day flow so nicely. Any questions/issues that came up- Mary was able to handle them. We had our ceremony there and the reception to follow. All of our guest were very impressed with the uniqueness of the venue. The price was right and the food was very good and served hot! The bridge right before the venue is out, which can make directions to the venue a little confusing- but as long as you let your guests know ahead of time you will be able to relay the correct directions to them (GPS guided directions will take people to the wrong side of the bridge)
