A dream come true!
Where to even begin! We searched high and low for our perfect wedding venue and once we set foot on the property here we knew we found our perfect place! The setting speaks for itself but Jessica and the whole staff treated us great and were so easy to work with. Our guests loved taking pictures with the gorgeous backdrop of the river and downtown Jacksonville and the food was to die for! We recommend this venue without a doubt!Sent on 06/07/2020

Take it from the Bride herself - have YOUR wedding here!
Florida Yacht Club is such a beautiful place to have your wedding at! I was immediately in love with the river views along with the beautiful wood-beam ceilings in their ballroom. I loved the hardwood floors in the ballroom so everyone can dance, even from their seats.Sent on 01/31/2020
The catering manager, Jessica, was such a pleasure to work with - she was not only professional but very easy going and flexible. She responded to my emails quickly and addressed any concerns we had. Even when I was worried about my guest count being higher than expected, Jessica was able to help us figure out a solution and floor plan that worked out. The FYC staff overall was just as amazing and so nice!
Plus, the food here is also DELICIOUS! My guests could not stop talking about the appetizers (especially the crab cakes) and the gouda mac & cheese...it is to die for!!
Overall, I loved that I chose the Florida Yacht club for our wedding reception - and I would do it all over again if I could :)
