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 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.

They did an absolutely amazing job with my wedding. They are very reasonably priced and so was the caterer they suggested- I wasn't forced into choosing anything I didn't want to. They were very open to all of my ideas & were so accommodating. The space is breathtaking and perfect for a nautical themed wedding because of the gorgeous row boat hanging from the ceiling & the multitude of antique lanterns. Plus the river & waterfall is great for pictures. The Plymouth Bay catering company is the caterer the recommend and they were fantastic as well. Andrew was our wedding coordinator and he went above and beyond his job description to make sure we were happy. The food was amazing! We went with 3 appetizers- my favorite being the mini artisan pizzas which they passed around on wooden pizza paddles. For dinner we had a strawberry summer salad to start followed by the guests choice of stuffed chicken or a half top sirloin- both were delicious & I am still receiving compliments 2 weeks after our wedding.

We were recently married at Jones River and I must say...not only was the venue absolutely gorgeous but Mary and Mark were truly amazing. They were wonderful to work with and extremely flexible. The food was AMAZING and our guests raved about the uniqueness of the venue. If we could do it all over again, we wouldn't change a single thing. If anyone wants a beautiful wedding with a different feel to it, please contact Jones River. I promise you won't be dissapointed!

Thank you Mark, Mary and Meg.

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)
