About Us

The Rivermill Story

Rivermill at Dover Landing is a beautiful event space located in an artfully restored, historic mill building. With lofted windows, rugged pillars, and rustic wood floors, our location manages to create a feeling of peace and quiet intimacy amid the hustle and bustle of downtown Dover. Boasting a picturesque view of the Cocheco River, Rivermill has been called a hidden gem. Since opening our doors in 2011, we have fulfilled the needs of hundreds of parties: concerts, holiday parties, campaign events, with a specialty in weddings.

Husband & wife team Kevin and Starr Sullivan each bring over thirty years of hospitality experience with them, meaning no matter what event they host for you, you will feel completely taken care of. Unlike most other venues, we offer flexibility in all things. If picking a caterer or a florist or a band or DJ is a source of anxiety for you, there’s no need to worry. Rivermill has a list of preferred vendors for all services, vendors with personal recommendations from the owners so you can trust in their professionalism and quality. If you already have a specific vendor in mind, however, you’re free to use them as well. At Rivermill, it is our goal that your event go off without a hitch and that you can enjoy your special day free of stress. Let us make your day perfect, and something you’ll remember for the rest of your life.

But don’t just take our word for it – listen to our satisfied clients:

“The space itself is stunning and rich in character and charm. The brick walls, exposed beams and large windows provide a beautiful backdrop and create a warm atmosphere for any event, but it was especially perfect for a wedding. Kevin and Starr were exceptional to work with. They coordinated the whole day and eased my mind, making sure everything was in place which allowed me to have a stress-free day at my own wedding! To this day I am still receiving compliments about how gorgeous the venue was. Hands down, booking this venue was the best decision we made for our wedding! Highly recommended!” – Alyssa

“Kevin was incredibly professional and accommodating. I met with him multiple times before the wedding and each time he was completely focused on what my husband and I wanted for our wedding. During the reception everything was run so smoothly. [Kevin] even made a point to come over to us personally to make sure we were enjoying our time and brought us a drink from the bar. We honestly could not have been happier with our experience.” – Ashlee

“Their professionalism in every aspect of their work was absolutely second to none. Incredibly accommodating in every aspect, no matter the request. Fast to address and respond to any concerns and always there with helpful recommendations … Starr, thank you so much. You were a joy to work with and the day truly was perfect.” – Aaron

“Kevin and Starr are passionate about giving you a great wedding experience (Starr was outside gardening herself and Kevin even coordinated his outfit to our wedding!) They worked with us to create a completely unique and amazing wedding.” -Leandra
