We choose the First Lady for our wedding reception - and it was absolutely perfect! Working with Max during the planning stages was flawless. So helpful, especially since we had to plan our entire wedding remotely from another country. The staff and boat itself are great - our guests had the best afternoon/evening ever. No better to celebrate in Chicago. Thanks to all!Sent on 08/13/2014
