Magical day on the Indian river queen

My wedding was better than I could have ever imagined on the Indian river queen. I went with the catering, cake maker, florist and officient supplied through penny. I felt like I got a good value initially and on the day of the event everything was awesome. The food was delicious, flowers were perfect, cake was beautiful and good flavor and captain todd was kind and gracious. Penny knows how to organize and direct her crew so that everything flows seamlessly. She has put her heart into this boat and it shines through.

Bat Mitzvah day perfection

We had my daughter's bat Mitzvah in May. They were super easy to work with. Made all menu changes I asked for, responded same day when I had questions and were always polite and professional. And the day was perfect. My 13 year old told me that if she could build a time machine, she would go back to that day because it was the best. Highly recommend!

Our wedding was everything we dreamed of because of Penny and her awesome crew! I was completely stress free as Penny handled all of the planning for me. I definitely recommend the Indian River Queen to anyone who wants a picture perfect wedding filled with lots of fun and love. Everyone had such a great time. I will forever cherish my wedding day. Thank you for everything, Penny!
