Convenient, Beautiful, and Beyond Professional!

The Boathouse was such an incredible venue! It was the clear choice for us and was beyond convenient since EVERYTHING was included! They handle everything from linens and food to tables and chairs and even throw in a day of coordinator (Alli) who is absolutely incredible. Bonnie (sales) walked us through options and pricing and everything was transparent from the jump. Alli brought our dream wedding to life, and displayed professionalism every step of the way paying attention to details such as making sure we had a drink in our hand when we needed one and kept us operating on the timeline we wanted to be on. The whole experience was 10/10.

The perfect venue

We had the most perfect experience at the Boathouse Rockett's Landing. From top to bottom, everything was SO easy and perfect down to the last detail. We honestly didn't stress for one second. The food packages were clear and the food was excellent. The bar was all inclusive per guest and manned by professional bartenders. Everything was taken care of for us, including any outside vendors we hired for the reception. We basically just showed up and had the perfect wedding. Alli was our day-of coordinator and I really can't thank her enough. She was easy to talk to, she was professional, she handled everything with absolute ease, and she even bustled my dress for me when my bridesmaids couldn't figure it out (while sending someone to get me a drink). If you're thinking about this place, do yourself a favor and pull the trigger. Amanda Arnold Photography took these photos, and I can't recommend her enough, either!
