    The Peninsula Yacht Club was the most perfect venue!! The views are absolutely breathtaking and we loved getting married by the water. We were even able to leave via boat, which was so neat!! Jeff, Emily and all of the staff were so helpful and worked hard to make sure our day was perfect. I highly recommend this venue!!

    For a girl that’s always dreamed of getting married by the water and not the typical Charlotte Uptown/Country Club wedding I could not have asked for a more perfect venue. From the moment we saw the formal dining room that backed up onto a large wrap around porch overlooking the lake we knew this was exactly where we wanted to hold our ceremony and reception. This venue became even more enticing when we heard PYC uses its own kitchen so there would be no need to coordinate with a caterer, they have their own tableware as well as a variety of linen colors so there would be no need to order rentals, and best of all the porch offered a built in rain plan. We could not thank our event coordinators Kelsey and Emily enough for all of their help and support throughout the planning process. They were truly wonderful and helped to keep us at ease as we navigated all the decisions that needed to be made. PYC does offer a menu tasting prior to deciding on your day of selections and everything we tried tasted wonderful. We greatly appreciated all the menu options available to us as well as PYC’s flexibility in mixing and matching items to form our ideal meal. Even though there are some small fees for extras such as the black/white dance floor, ceremony space rental, day of coordination and twinkle light installation the best value offered is the boat exit. My only regret was the music from the boathouse on the first floor wasn't turned off during our some of our processional and one of our family members had to run back to quickly turn down the volume. It was a simple mistake that can easily be avoided in the future! Absolutely loved working with the Peninsula Yacht Club to craft our perfect day and would happily recommend it to any brides looking for something a little off the beaten path of typical Charlotte.

    Erin was the best. She answered all of our questions and guided us when we weren't sure what to do. She coordinated everything the day of the wedding as well. it was a beautiful day and everything went as planned.

We LOVE working at Peninsula Yacht Club. It has a unique vibe being right on Lake Norman that you can not duplicate elsewhere. Dance on the porch as you watch the sunset. It is just beautiful. Here is a video highlight for you:

We have performed for several events at Peninsula Yacht Club. The staff is very professional and the venues are beautiful. Our music goes over particularly well in the lakeside environment available right on Lake Norman. We would highly recommend Peninsula Yacht Club for wedding rehearsal dinners, ceremonies and receptions!
