The River View
This modern events venue features both natural wood accents and floor to ceiling windows for an upfront view of the Occoquan River. Perfect for a waterfront wedding, this venue can accommodate up to 400 guests both indoors and outdoors.
The 1608 Room
The 1608 Room pays tribute to the rich history of the area, when Captain John Smith was surveying the Chesapeake Bay. This space can serve as a pre-event space and also a great educational foyer for guests to the park.
Do you dream of the ideal outdoor wedding with a water backdrop? Glad you’ve found us then. We have two outdoor ceremony areas overlooking the Occoquan River.
Open daily from 10 am to 4 pm and by appointment for tours. Event hours vary.
Brickmakers Café (downstairs) is open from 11 am to 8 pm daily and 10 am to 8 pm on Sundays.
Beautiful venue with excellent staff!

Cori and Carson are a dream team. They were super responsive and fun to collaborative with. They never made us feel that we were in the planning choas alone. We couldn't be happier with our venue selection.

We had a wonderful experience planning and hosting our wedding at the River View! It is a gorgeous and spacious venue! I loved that the venue is located within Occaquan Regional Park as I played many a soccer game on the fields there. Traveling to The River View was also easy for our guests and the venue has all the parking you could need to host your event.
Despite the pouring rain on our wedding day, we had a lovely reception! The view overlooking the water is spectacular and the venue offers plenty of places to capture your wedding photos (we will be returning for a photo shoot as we were unable to get outside due to the relentless rain). Cori and Carson were always available and made planning our event fun! Their professionalism is top notch and they were able to offer their knowledgable assistance in making our wedding one we will look back on fondly for all our years to come.
