Absolute best wedding venue

We truly could not have asked for a better wedding venue. From the moment we walked onto The Moshulu, we knew it was where we wanted to have our wedding. Our wedding was on 12/8/23 (we had our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception at The Moshulu). We had a little less than 100 guests, which ended up being the perfect amount of people. Jake and Rebecca were an absolute dream to work with; they made the planning process a breeze and quickly answered our many emails with detailed responses to our questions. The entire Moshulu staff was incredible and made us feel like royalty all day. They kept the suites stocked with food and drinks which was AMAZING. Everything came together better than we could have imagined, and the day went off without a hitch. Our guests are still talking about how beautiful and unique of a venue it was. The holiday decor on the ship was so beautiful and complimented our decor perfectly - it looked and felt so magical! The food was SO good. In between the ceremony and cocktail hour, they set up a table filled with hor deourves and champagne in one of the suites, so we could take a few minutes to take in the moment and have a snack before joining our guests at cocktail hour - it was such a special moment. I cannot say enough good things about The Moshulu and all of its staff. If you are considering having your wedding here, I would 1000% recommend it.

Best wedding venue! 100% recommend

The Moshulu was the first venue we looked at and we instantly fell in love and knew it was where we wanted to host our wedding reception. First, the ship is absolutely stunning and we knew it would give such a unique experience to our guests. Because it has such charm and character, we were able to focus on key details like centerpieces and signage rather than needing to worry about dressing a blank space! But more importantly, we knew it was where we wanted to have our wedding because of how well we were treated by the Moshulu staff during every single interaction from our first tour until the big day! Jake was the absolute best to work with through everything! We found many other venues stick to a “cookie cutter” approach or up charge for every little thing… but as a vendor, the Moshulu was so incredibly flexible, collaborative, and accommodating with their wedding package to truly make it OUR day. It was such a pleasure to collaborate (and we really do mean collaborate!) with Jake and team on our vision, and our guests commented on the beauty of the ship all night long! We would highly recommend anyone host their event at the Moshulu!
