    amazing wedding venue! all in 1 concept, great staff, great location

    We had such a lovely weddingday with stillwater riverboats. We had the showboat. The boat is allready pretty and it doenst even need a lot of decoration. The staff on our weddingday was amazing and could not have done it any other way! The Captain was amazing too! We forget the sand for the sandceremony and were stressing out minutes before our ceremony. He provided us with a big bucket of beautifull white stillwatersand wich rescued our ceremony and is now even extra special!

    The Captain even went all the way to provide us the best pictures ever on the river. He would tell our photographer when we were hitting certain spots for the better pictures and were to be on the boat.

    Before our special day we sat together with the team from stillwater riverboats to talk about how we want our day to be arranged. Everything went very smooth.

    If I had questions I would email them and I would have a response back that same day.

    We did our ceremony on the topdeck of tthe boat just whe the boat would sail away.
    Our first dance was indoor, but the weather was so nice that after that fisrt dance we moved the dancefloor on the topdeck outside and the staff was more willing to help. We did book an extra 2 hours on the boat (total of 6) and we are so happy we did that! we danced away on the topdeck. We just made our own playlist and used there bose system wich worked great! Everybody is still talking about our wedding. You have all your loved ones on 1 spot, people van sit, dance, enjoy indoor or outdoor, enjoy the vieuws of the river, dance. So much to entertain your guest.

    Best Choice

    We loved having our wedding here. The staff were very knowledgeable and super friendly. The venue was very nice, but super affordable! We had the italian buffet and tiramisu and chocolate torte, and our guests were raving about the food! The space is super flexible, and we were able to change things up as needed. Everything went better than we could have hoped for, and our guests told us it was fun going to a wedding at such a unique venue!
