Wedding venue that does it all - best decision we made!
The Boathouse at Rocketts Landing was absolutely the perfect venue to fulfill all our wedding needs and more! Not only do they offer rates that work with your budget, but they cater the food in house (so delicious), provide the tables, linens, dance floor, and an assigned event coordinator! It was so nice not having to contract with outside third-parties or hire a day of wedding planner. Literally your one-stop shop and did I mention the venue is gorgeous?! Due to COVID-19 we had to postpone of May wedding to August 2020, but our event coordinator worked closely with us all the way up to our big day. They went above and beyond to ensure our wedding was held safely and met our expectations. Throughout the process, they kept me informed and reassured on every detail which honestly limited any stress whatsoever. Also, we had some rain right before our outdoor ceremony which thankfully let up just in time, but the great thing is the Boathouse has a back-up space in the event of bad weather. I really can't say enough great things about the Boathouse at Rocketts Landing and the staff, especially the event coordinators, Alli and Hana who were with me through it all. They were both phenomenal!! My wedding turned out to be everything I could have imagine. Highly recommended!!!Sent on 08/25/2020

I got married 6 months ago at The Boathouse at Rocketts Landing and we had a wonderful experience from the initial meeting up until the wedding reception. We worked closely with our wedding coordinator, Alli Carney. She was so easy to work with and responded quickly to all of our questions. The day of the wedding reception, she made sure everything ran smoothly and was directly involved every step of the way. As the bride and the mother of the bride, we did not have to worry about one thing and Alli made sure we were taken care of and pleased with the service and overall experience.Sent on 12/30/2019
The venue and service overall were perfect for a wedding. We had many people who attended comment on the beautiful venue and views. The food was perfect and many people commented on how delicious their meal was as well. The service overall, from Alli to the waiters to the bartenders, was more than we expected. Everyone was organized, friendly, and efficient.
We highly recommend this venue!

A Unique Richmond Venue: Flexible and Professional Coordinators with Unbeatable Views
My husband and I got married at the Boathouse at Rocket's Landing July 27, 2019. We were blown away by how flexible and open minded the event planners were! Upon touring the Boathouse, we fell in love with the view of the city. After seeing the views of the Boathouse, we wanted to set up a tent on the river and have a tented reception. Ali and Susan worked diligently to make our crazy idea the most beautiful reality! The event planners at the Boathouse at Rockets Landing are truly one of a kind. Ali was incredibly helpful and effective setting up (dozens of) rentals, coordinating our ceremony and reception, and executing the wedding day itself. Ali is not only a wedding magician, she is also the kindest and most fun person to work with! The Boathouse at Rocket's Landing gave us the perfect venue and back drop for our Richmond wedding. Their flexibility and willingness to try something new is truly rare in the wedding industry! I would highly recommend getting married at the Boathouse at Rocket's Landing!
