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)

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.

I cannot begin to tell you what a wonderful experience it was to have had our only daughter’s wedding at Jones River Trading Company. The place looked wonderful, the staff that handled our special day was spectacular, and we could not have asked for anything more!

From the day we first came and peeked in the doors of the facility, only to have Tom let us in and show us around, to the end of Kate and James’ reception last night, everything went beautifully. Meg and Tom were so very nice to deal with, the facility is lovely, and the folks at Plymouth Bay Caterers went way above and beyond our expectations. The food was hot (always a concern of mine) and absolutely delicious!

Mary kept our reception moving and was an absolute delight to work with, from the minute we stepped off the limo-bus until the last guest left the hall. She was professional, friendly, and felt like a member of the wedding party, not just a coordinator. I cannot say enough about how smoothly our reception went with her guidance and oversight. Although not at all intrusive, she seemed to materialize the moment I had a question or a concern, and with her assistance, those questions or concerns were addressed with seemingly little effort on her part. She is a gem, and I cannot help but think our reception ran as smoothly as it did because of her!

It was most wonderful wedding reception ever! Every detail, every corner of the room, every moment of the evening was just perfect! Would recommend Jones River and the Plymouth Bay Caterers to anyone planning a wedding or any other event for that matter! Well done!

This place is whimsical, unique, and VERY AFFORDABLE! We had so much fun here, as did our guests, and wish we could go back! Everyone commented on how unique and beautiful the hall was, along with where we held the ceremony out back. Meg was so helpful throughout the planning, we couldn't have asked for a better space, or people to work with.

Plymouth Bay Catering, their caterer, did a wonderful job with the food and special requests we had. Mark had great suggestions and gave us honest answers to all of our questions. Mary was FANTASTIC at our rehearsal the night before, and during the wedding. You've got a great team here! I hope to be back again, but as a guest!

I would highly recommend this venue for a wedding or any other special event. The pictures don't do it justice, go meet with Meg and see it in person. You'll be sold!

The Jones River Trading is a beautiful, unique event venue. Meg was very easy to work with, and answered all of my questions and emails leading up to the event. The wedding reception was gorgeous, especially with the interior lighting after it got dark outside. There was plenty of room for our 185 guests, and the dance floor was very large, easily accommodating a large amount of people dancing. I was very happy with this venue and would highly recommend it for a wedding reception.

I just had my wedding reception at Jones River on 3/3/12. I absolutely loved it! It was a unique venue and it looked so amazing in the photos. They should update their website, the ones they have don't do it justice. I reccomend that you Google some photo blogs and check out some photos from actual weddings there to get an idea. Plymouth bay catering was great to work with, the food was excellent and the waitstaff were friendly and professional. We had 180 people and I think the room was a great size for our crowd. Huge dancefloor and we made good use of it! Thanks Meg of Jones River and Mark of Plymouth Bay!

We had our wedding reception here last weekend and it was great. We are so glad that we picked this venue for our reception. The place is so unique, we got a lot of great pictures. The pictures from outback came out beautiful. The food was amazing, people are still calling to tell us how great it was. Mary was the best, she was supportive and very helpful during our planning and our reception. There was plenty of room and the room looked so nice with our center pieces and decorations. We loved this place and are so happy that we were able to have our reception here!

This place is unique and sets the tone for a wedding. It's nautical but not cheesy. The bar is an Irish antique from Dublin! CHEERS!
The lighting is fun and whimsical. You can dress the room up or down!
Whatever you pleasure. We did minimal and our guest really enjoyed the atmosphere.
The venue is huge. There is a large back area with a bridal suite. We were married on the dance floor, however, out back is a nice deck with a large willow tree and a waterfall in the background.
Jones River is a special place. We were so glad we took the ride to Kingston to view it. The pictures do not do it justice! Honestly.

If you are looking for a fun, whimsical, unique venue, take a ride to Kingston and check out the Jones River Trading Company! This ain't no country club!

The facility is beautiful inside and it is such a unique venue. I didn’t want to have my wedding at a country club or function room like everyone else, and that’s why I picked Jones River. The catering company is also great there. The food was delicious and served hot, since it’s prepared there as well. The only complaint I have is that they switched wedding coordinators a few months before my wedding and that wasn’t made clear to me. So for awhile I felt like I didn’t have a wedding coordinator. Mary ended up being my wedding coordinator and she did an awesome job. She made sure everything went smoothly and everything was perfect.

Our wedding reception at The Jones River Trading was beyond perfect. Meg and her husband were beyond accomodating not only the day of but during the planning process as well. The grounds are well kept and perfect for pictures. We had 130 guests with a buffet and the space suited us well. Lots of room to dance and plenty of places for folks to sit and chat or enjoy the music/dancing. We are still getting compliments on what a great venue it is. A true jem.

My daughter's wedding was last Friday night at Jones River - it was a beautiful night and overall, I was very pleased with the entire event. Everyone enjoyed this unique venue and the eclectic atmosphere - and I received many positive comments about the food. Mark from Plymouth Bay Catering was easy to work with and receptive to changes/specific requests. We were near capacity with 220 guests, so I requested an extra bartender to help with the initial rush for drinks after the ceremony and I would definitely recommend this. Things to note - if you're having your ceremony outside, not everyone will have a seat - some guests will be standing - also, they use plastic cups at the bar - they are nice plastic, but plastic just the same - not a big deal but good to know. I definitely recommend Jones River if you are looking for something different, not the usual country club atmosphere - it was a fun party!

I would recommend The Jones River Company to anyone who is seeking a venue that is a little bit different. It was beautiful! A mix between rustic and romantic. Meg was always willing to help but it was sometimes difficult to get ahold of her.

This venue was amazing. It has a very unique atmosphere and feel to it. I liked that it was not a typical ballroom, but had plenty of space. There are neat tables and rooms on the side for people to be around the dance floor who are not into dancing. It definitely kept guests entertained. The couple that owns the venue are great. They were extremely easy to work with, and were helpful and responsive throughout all of the planning. The only thing is they do not have a lot of pictures available there, so if anyone is interested in seeing more pictures of the venue, let me know. Everyone loved the place, and we are still getting many compliments on how interesting and unique it was for a wedding. They work with Plymouth Bay Catering Company only, so you do not have an option to bring in an outside caterer.

Jones River is the ultimate unique wedding venue. We loved it from the second we walked in. With high ceiling and a nautical feel it was perfect for our beach themed reception. The bar is imported from England and even though it looks small, the bar was never too slow. At night, the place is gorgeous and huge. Even though we only had about 100 people, we felt so comfortable. It is very cozy and truly a hidden jewel.

Jones River Trading is so unique and different, it was one of the main reason we booked it for our June 13, 2009 wedding. Meg and Tom are super friendly and are willing to listen to your needs. Jones River has a nice bridal suite room with a bathroom and shower for you and your wedding party. The main bathrooms for the guest are clean and nice looking. And for photos, the outside is perfect. There are a few wicked old tress, that look great in the background, along with a small river or creek. I highly recommend Jones River for your wedding!!

I LOVED this place. Meg and her husband were so nice and accomodating. They hung out at the wedding all night to see things through, and when my DJ didn't show, they helped us find a replacement. They even accomodated our odd requests, a photobooth! It was a reasonable price and a unique venue. My only issue was the small bar and lack of flexibility with the caterer -- they only allow one. While the catering company delivered amazing food, they were very difficult to work with on the bar and at the wedding, my guests experienced long lines and bad attitudes. This could be a one time only thing, however it didn't go unnoticed.

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.
