The best wedding venue and wedding help ever!
My husband and I decided to have our wedding at the Boathouse after we had dinner at the restaurant to celebrate our engagement. It was the best decision ever! Alli was incredibly helpful throughout our entire wedding planning process. I really can't imagine a more qualified, organized, or friendly person to work with and we have nothing but amazing things to say about her. Having your wedding at the Boathouse is as stress-free as wedding planning can be. They are so easy to work with and it is so nice to have one vendor handle the ceremony, reception space, linens and rentals, and catering. The food was incredible, we had so many compliments on the unique space, and they included so many thoughtful touches for my husband and me (like providing us with a meal to go as we were leaving--I was so nervous during the actual reception I couldn't eat much of my dinner!). Altogether, we are so happy we chose the Boathouse and would highly recommend it to anyone.Sent on 08/07/2019

A Magical Wedding
Our wedding at The Boathouse at Rocketts Landing was absolutely perfect! We worked with Alli, our day of coordinator, and she was a dream. She worked hard to make sure my vision was brought to life, and was very calm and laid back throughout the whole process, which helped to ease my nerves and take away some of the stress that goes with planning a wedding! The staff the day of was also fantastic, going out of their way to make sure the entire bridal party was fed, and that we were treated like VIPs. We got married August 31st, and our ceremony started at 5:30 - letting our photographer take advantage of the golden hour during cocktail hour photos. The only negative (not the fault of the Boathouse) was that there were people playing volleyball and taking advantage of the bike path nearby, one of which walked through our ceremony while I was walking down the aisle. This was made up for by the awesome diners at the Boathouse cheering from the patio when we were pronounced husband and wife. With the RVA skyline and the James River in the background, our photos are stunning! The sunset from the River View Room was gorgeous, and all of our guests kept commenting on how beautiful our venue was. If you're looking for a truly "Richmond" wedding and don't mind a few spectators, the Boathouse couldn't be a more perfect choice.Sent on 09/13/2019

Elaine Rush and her staff are the best!
My husband and I got married on 06/15/2019 with a quick ceremony and lunch celebration. It was lovely. The staff was incredibly kind, helpful, thoughtful, funny when I was feeling nervous, and all our guests verbalized the same. Everyone complimented the food and drinks. The view was incredible. Elaine was so responsive, incredibly helpful, and helped to make difficult last minute decisions that day which made everything go smoothly for us. Thank you so much Elaine and the Boathouse Rockett's Landing staff!Sent on 07/14/2019
