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.
