    They were great and super attentive and were able to accommodate every need that we had. We had a couple people at the wedding who were gluten free and they made sure to provide a gluten free meal for them. DJ was great and the staff was wonderful! All of this was put together within two months! I would highly suggest a boat wedding! View of the Potomac was great!
