PERFECT venue for us!
Getting married on Thompson Island was nothing short of perfect! We worked with Denise and Mary Kate, who were so organized, so efficient, so attentive to detail, and so patient. For a bride and groom who didn't want to be too burdened by details, it was really easy, because they organized and communicated everything with us and our vendors.Sent on 11/11/2019
The venue is so naturally beautiful, and our guests loved taking the boat over and staying overnight. The ceremony and reception venues are unmatched, with views of Boson in the background.
The food was delicious, and the late-night bonfire was perfect for our afterparty. We seriously wouldn't have changed a single thing! Highly recommend this venue for a couple who doesn't want to be totally traditional and who loves the natural beauty of the great outdoors!

Amazing Venue and Team!
We had such an amazing experience at Thompson Island from the time we looked at the venue to our wedding day, this past July. Mary Kate was such an amazing wedding coordinator. She was wonderful to work with and very helpful with her wealth of wedding knowledge! Even on the hottest day of the year, the whole team at Thompson Island went above and beyond to make sure us, our families and guests were having a great time. We couldn't be happier that we chose to have our reception at Thompson Island.Sent on 12/10/2019

I became a bit nervous when a few months into the planning process there was a switch in the person who I was connected with. But, oh my goodness Mary Kate was a blessing in disguise. I felt at ease and happy the entire time- she might as well have been another guest at the wedding. She knew exactly how to handle every situation from rain to rowdy groomsmen and beyond. We truly had the best night of our lives and our guests continue to gush over the venue and food to this day. If I had to do it all over again I would go with Mary Kate and Thompson Island in a heartbeat.Sent on 12/29/2019
