Riverside on the Potomac Wedding Floor Plans
We work on Riverside on the Potomac weddings a lot. An average of once a year – which is a lot for us, since we plan and coordinate about 16-18 weddings per year and there are about 300 venues in the overall DC area! So we have created our fair share of Riverside on the Potomac wedding floor plans. SO we thought we would share them with you in case you need inspiration or assistance with your Riverside on the Potomac wedding floor plan! The wedding floor plans below are shown from our most recent to our first wedding at ROTP in 2013!
Above: Our only 2022 wedding at Riverside on the Potomac. This sweet couple invited 300 guests to their wedding, and I swore up and down to them that we would probably be around 225 in the end. They would up with 274 affirmative RSVPs! I swear if there were any more, we would have had to go back to the Long Gallery after dinner for dancing and dessert. Photo to come!
Updated post-wedding: This worked out great. Yes, I am a layout genius. However, the lines at the bathrooms were long all night with this many people, so next time I would rent an additional trailer. And if we had been in poor weather, the only real option is the ceremony in the big barn followed by cocktails in the Long Gallery while the big barn is reset. Splitting the Long Gallery porch and barn is not feasible with so many people.
Above: My first time putting the band on a stage at Riverside on the Potomac was at this 2021 wedding. Suzi and Travis have newer neighbors now, and so the speakers must be on the same side as the doors, and must face the opposite wall. Below: the same wedding.
Above: By this 2019 wedding, we got the permanent bar and lounge, thank goodness! Here we used all farm tables for the guest seating.
Above: Another great 2019 wedding where we had a lot of space to spread out! Below: from the same wedding.

Riverside on the Potomac Floor Plans – before current renovations
I’ll mention this again below, but Suzi and Travis have consistently reinvested in Riverside on the Potomac, making it a bigger and better wedding venue year after year. All the while not raising their rates. They are amazing venue owners to work with.
Above: This wedding was in 2017, before Suzi and Travis installed the lounge and the bar on the left side of the diagram. Thankfully we got the columns noted on the floorplan template by now! Below is from the same wedding.
Above: A 2016 wedding at Riverside on the Potomac. At this wedding, I learned the VERY hard way that we cannot fit columns (or rows, depending on how you look at the diagram) of 5 tables in the barn at this wedding. We scrambled hard to rearrange the tables and keep the VIPs close to the head table. It was not my best moment. Below is from the same wedding.
Above: This is from my first wedding at Riverside on the Potomac, in June of 2013. I don’t even remember how I generated this floor plan. We booked it about 7 months prior, when there was snow on the ground, no floors in the barn, and “collectibles” piled up to the ceiling. But Suzi had a vision, and we believed in her. In this era, we had to rent a restroom trailer. Suzi and Travis have made so many incredible improvements to the property over the last almost-decade. Below: from the same wedding.
