    Best venue and staff ever!

    Having our wedding at the Boathouse was the best decision we made. Not only is the venue gorgeous, but the whole team was incredible. Our coordinator, Alli, ran everything seamlessly and guided us through the whole process. Alli made sure we had food, drinks, and never needed anything throughout the night. I cannot rave enough about how much we love Alli and the entire staff. Guests were raving about the food and drinks all night long, as well as the view.

    Best Venue Ever!


    We couldn’t have picked a better place to get married. We chose the Boathouse because a lot of the important elements were included (ceremony, food, bar, linens, etc..). You also get a coordinator to help you through the entire planning process and be the point person on the day of the wedding.

    Alli was our coordinator, and honestly, I don’t know how we would have had the experience we had without her. She was fantastic from the initial planning to the wedding, making her job look easy. The big day went smoothly without a hitch - with every detail taken care of.

    Our guests had an absolute blast. From being next to the river with great views of downtown to the fantastic food - it couldn’t get much better. People are still raving about what a great time they had.

    Thank you, Alli for everything you did to make our day amazing. You’re the best!
