Captain Dan of Magnolia Blossom Rivercruise was easy to work with, and our wedding/reception was spectacular! If you are planning a wedding and/or reception of 50 people or less, look no farther. The food was delicious, the paddleboat was super cool, the service was excellent - we have zero negative things to say about our experience.

Having our wedding on the Magnolia Blossom was the perfect venue for us! We had a smaller budget to work with but still wanted to do something unique and different for our big day. The boat was the perfect size. The staff was amazing and so helpful before, during and after. Our guests had a wonderful time! We had a smaller sized wedding with 75 guests that attended, we were able to have 100 total. I think 75 was the perfect number for the space. Our guests also loved that the ceremony and reception were all in one place. The Food was served buffet style, all of it was delicious and there was more than enough for everyone to get their fill. There were lots of options to choose from on the menu, we went with the grand buffet, something simpler since we were eating around 3pm. For the bar we placed a set dollar amount of $1000 and that was enough for everyone to drink, and the additional price for unlimited non-acoholic is very reasonable. We were able to bring in our own cupcakes and cake which was awesome. Captain Dan was very helpful throughout the whole planning process, quickly replied to emails and was easy to schedule meetings with over the phone and in-person. The cruise itself was beautiful, soothing, very peaceful and created a real relaxing vibe to our whole wedding. The whole experience was wonderful and went so smoothly every step of the way. We look forward to having other events on the Magnolia Blossom in the future.

We had a wedding of about 90 people. The cruise was awesome (we chose the MPLS Lock and Dam route), and all of our guests loved it! It was well within our budget, and the Magnolia was less expensive than 4 other cruise companies we checked out. The food was delicious, they had quite a few options to choose from. Dan, the caption was super easy to work with! I give this venue 10 out of 10 for value, and great customer service! Thanks Capt. Dan for making our wedding awesome! If you are looking for a more of a casual wedding with approx. 100 guests, this is a perfect venue! Our day was awesome, and stress free!
