    Amazing!

    AMAZING! Choosing the Boathouse was probably one of the easiest decisions we made for our wedding. They took care of everything, food, drinks, setting up. The level of attention to details was impeccable, the food was delicious and overall everything was perfect! Our experience with our wedding could not have been better!

    Beautiful fall wedding venue and all-around excellent experience

    Many people who get married are doing so for the first time, and as a result, planning a wedding is new to them and can be overwhelming. This was certainly the case for my husband Vincent and me, married at The Boathouse on November 5th, 2022.
    We were thrilled at the prospect of tying the knot in a central location, close to the river and the city we call home, so The Boathouse was our first choice venue. We were surprised to find that it was within our budget and we immediately moved to book our date. For us, the name of the game for planning our wedding was value and minimal stress. We considered hiring a wedding planner and/or day-of coordinator, but with Alli Prato, this was wholly unnecessary and we were able to save money on planning services. Alli was with us every step and was on point about all the details: food, decor, linens, DJ, ceremony, all of it. If you go with The Boathouse, you have at least a year before your date, and you're comfortable planning most wedding tasks unrelated to the venue (hotels, flowers, guests, invitations, etc.), then there is no need to hire a planner, as Alli takes care of virtually all venue-related tasks.
    Our ceremony took place outside, overlooking the river and Richmond skyline. We lucked out with perfect weather and it was beautiful! Our reception was upstairs in the River View Room, and guests could mingle outside on the patio/balcony, or inside by the bar or dancefloor. This inside/outside situation was perfect, since November 5th could have been chilly.
    Also, even though my husband and I hardly had time to eat for spending time with friends and family, the food was amazing! We went with the heavy hors d'oeuvres option, so there were passed appetizers, food stations, etc. This worked well for 135 people and everyone had plenty to eat and plenty of options. Another aspect we loved was that The Boathouse pays their staff a competitive hourly wage and includes gratuity. My husband and I have worked in the service industry so it was important to us that working our wedding was lucrative for servers and bartenders.
    We had a perfect day surrounded by so many people we loved, and The Boathouse was just the place
