A Dream Come True
My husband and I fell in love with the atmosphere when we first arrived. Not only is the venue itself amazing but the staff is incredible. They did anything and everything they could to make sure our day was everything we dreamt of. The food was absolutely delicious and the service was spectacular! Special shout out to Sonya who was amazing and supportive during the whole process especially because we had to postpone twice. The Boathouse will always have a special place in my heart.Sent on 10/12/2020
