A John Wright Event!
With a breath-taking view of the Susquehanna River, the River Room is the perfect space for your event. It is no secret that a wedding day stands among the most important occasions a couple can experience in their lifetime, and we cherish the great honor and responsibility that comes along with this.
With endless backdrops for photos, John Wright is here to showcase your special day. Unlike most other venues, you can return to your “I do” location year after year to celebrate your anniversary or to enjoy a romantic dinner.

"This review will never convey how happy I was with the work the individuals at John Wright did for my wedding. They were so accommodating to our budget, our dietary needs, and guests! Like many people, I've never planned a wedding before, but I have attended quite a few and my main concerns were food, and making sure my guests were taken care of. We have received countless compliments on the dinner that was served, and comments on how the staff conducted themselves so professionally throughout the night. They worked well with my other vendors, and everything felt flawless. We had our ceremony and reception in the River room and it was beautiful. I couldn't be happier with their work!”
“Molly and Andrew, I just want to thank you for all your work, advice and guidance to make Amy and Jonathan's wedding day special! You were both great to work with and made the planning much easier. Thank you especially for listening to Amy and Jonathan and doing what you could to adjust to their ideas, while at the same time gently guiding them to what would work best. I will recommend John Wright Restaurant to others!”
“My husband and I had our ceremony and reception at John Wright Restaurant on September 4, 2016. Molly was our coordinator from day one and was very easy to work with. She has a great personality and always made sure we were getting exactly what we wanted on our wedding day. She answered my million emails in a timely manner and always greeted us with a smile. Andrew was our day-of coordinator and was awesome. He made sure that everything was on-time and as scheduled as well as made sure we had everything we needed. We had our ceremony out on the lawn by the river and the view was absolutely gorgeous. Our reception was upstairs in the River Room which is gorgeous! It’s very rustic [exposed wooden beams and brick walls] and was more than enough room for our 150+ guests. We also loved the HUGE [private] deck that our guests were able to take advantage of the whole night. The food was amazing and the service was top-notch. The surrounding area is very industrial, which is GREAT for pictures. I will forever recommend John Wright to all brides-to-be. Thank you Molly, Andrew, and the entire staff at John Wright for making sure we had the most perfect wedding – you all rock!”
“We had our ceremony on the lawn of John Wright and our reception in the River Room. Our experience was amazing from start to finish. We had the opportunity to work with Molly, she was accommodating and professional throughout planning. Her honesty and willingness to help made us feel like we were in good hands. The day of the wedding, Molly and her assistant stepped in as our day of coordinator due to an emergency. They were both attentive and made the events of the day flow smoothly. In the early stages of planning, we were nervous about John Wright because of the outdoor diners and our plans to have an outdoor ceremony. However, we were married at 4pm with very few diners sitting outside we didn't even notice. The space is incredibly versatile and fit perfectly for our amazing wedding.”
