    From the very beginning, I knew I was going to love the Boathouse because it had a calendar of available dates on the website (a pro for someone like me who hates calling/emailing strangers) and a blank canvas for decor. When looking for a venue, my biggest priority was to get away from the stuffy ballrooms and ornate carpeting that Connecticut venues tend to have, and the Boathouse was perfect. So light and airy and open! I'd never actually been inside it until my wedding day, and was blown away at the space (would highly recommend adding strands of lights on the ceiling). It ended up raining during the ceremony and we had to move to the upper deck, but that didn't stop guests from loving the beautiful river view. We had so much fun, and in such a stunning space—I only wish I'd had time to enjoy the venue itself longer! Kristen was a dream to work with, always so kind in answering my millions of questions (planning a wedding from afar is no joke). She is a true expert, and helped me work with my vendors to have what was truly a beautiful day. I would not have wanted to have my wedding at any other venue.

    This was the perfect spot for our reception! We lucked out with great weather on the day of our wedding in March and took advantage of the stunning views and waterfront. For the price it can't be beat with hotels right around the corner for guests to stay at. Don't let the fear of having catering separate deter you. The list of approved catering vendors is perfect and within MANY different price points. They are very accommodating and this should be a stop on your list of places to check out - it's a hidden gem!
