A Wedding At The River Room

August 17, 2018

Are you looking for a venue in the Wilmington area that will allow you to bring in your own vendors? The River Room, located on the Cape Fear river on Water Street, is a beautiful choice. The space can accommodate 120 people, and also has a suite with a dressing room, lounge area, private bathroom, and kitchen.

We recently catered a wedding at The River Room where ceremony was held on The Deck, located on the side of the JW Brooks Building. The inside has a homey, rustic feel with original exposed brick. It’s the perfect place to stay out of the heat, while also having a beautiful view.

The wedding menu included ham with raisin sauce, scalloped potatoes, green beans, squash casserole, and dinner rolls. We can’t wait to cater another event at The River Room!

NC House of Representatives: Catering Event

July 28, 2018
Recently, Sawmill had the honor of being chosen to cater a party for Carson Smith. Mr. Smith is running for the North Carolina House of Representatives in the upcoming November election.

Sawmill Catering provided an Hors D’Oeurves spread, which included caprese salad, bacon wrapped scallops (that seemed to disappear quickly), shrimp cocktail, crab dip, lemon squares, brownies, and more. Not only was the Hor D’Oeurves spread beautiful, but so was the venue. The event was held in a beautiful Hampstead home on the water at sunset.

We loved being able to serve at such an important event. Good luck, Carson!
