    The Harry Parker Boathouse is a unique and beautiful space to get married. The venue can be customized to meet any bride and groom's needs. We got married outside on the dock, had a cocktail hour in the beautiful space between the main boathouse and the sculling boathouse, and then had our reception upstairs. Theresa Fitzpatrick and her team completely transform the space from a workout gym into a beautiful event venue. Theresa is responsive, efficient, and reasonable. She is no-nonsense and so helpful to have on site the day of to help execute all of the little details. She did several walk throughs with me, my family, and my vendors. I really appreciated her attention to detail and loved getting married at the boathouse!

    The boathouse was an incredible location. We were looking for a venue that would be appropriate for both a ceremony and reception, close enough to the airport since we had a number of out-of-town guests coming in, parking, and beautiful! Not a lot to ask for right? :) We found that with the boathouse. From my first conversation with Sharanya, the boathouse coordinator, I felt in good hands and taken care of! Sharanya responded promptly to emails, addressed any concerns and helped to trouble shoot some issues that came up. Guests raved about how peaceful and beautiful the location was. Truly an amazing spot and I am so grateful we were able to book it. Make sure to book early! There's isn't a kitchen on premises, so something to think about when you're booking the space.

    Working with the event coordinators was easy and they were very flexible to our needs. Because we had people in the area and others were coming from out of town, they were willing to meet with each group and show us the facilities.
