The most relaxing and enjoyable wedding!
Every aspect of planning and execution was easy! The food was delicious and the service was outstanding. I have had many friends/family tell me it was the best wedding they had ever been to. It was very relaxing and we had a gorgeous evening! I would definitely recommend the River Queen!Sent on 01/28/2019

We had a brunch cruise wedding in the beginning of May. It’s now January and our guests still talk about it! Even our guests that were worried about motion sickness had a great time. The River Queen is absolutely beautiful of its own and didn’t need much decoration to be the perfect venue for our wedding. The staff was very helpful and everything ran smoothly. Food was delicious too.Sent on 01/18/2019
What a fantastic place for a wedding! Unique and special.
I have been entertaining events and weddings for over 15 years. One of my favorite experiences is the occasional wedding on the River Queen or River Belle. There is nothing quite like it... classic, comfortable, and a perfect balance for formal and casual. The staff is accommodating and fun, which helps the spirit of the day.
A great and unique way to host your wedding reception.
