We got married on October 7, 2018 and we selected this venue due to the scenic backdrop of the James River and downtown Richmond, VA. Out on site coordinator Alli Prato was the definition of excellence. She was thorough with planning the ceremony and the reception. The only detail we had to provide was the decor. The venue provided the food, beverages, table lines, chairs/tables, and vendors for photography, DJ, etc.. We literally showed up the day of our wedding and everything was in place for the wedding. We got a lot of compliments from our guests and vendors about the flow and the atmosphere of the wedding. We compliment the staff for their attentiveness and their punctuality. We had such a blast at our wedding and we highly recommend for any special event.

Our daughter got married October 14th at the Boathouse at Rockett’s Landing, and we couldn’t be more thrilled with the impeccable, friendly, and personal service we received. Our Event Coordinator was Elaine Rush, and from the time we booked the event in March until the wedding day, Elaine kept us on track to be sure everything was covered and that we didn’t forget any small, but important details. Boathouse has a complete vendor list they provide, and Elaine steered us to the PERFECT DJ and officiant. Besides the bride and groom, the STAR of the day was THE FOOD! My husband and I were so proud to be hosts if this event. The venue itself is beautiful with views of the James River, and the location provides a visual nod to both historic Richmond and views of the contemporary architecture from the city’s financial district. We highly recommend Boathouse at Rockett’s Landing for ANY special event.
