    The Perfect Venue

    We recently got married on The Raven and couldn't be happier with our choice. The entire Watermark staff was so easy to work with for planning leading up to the big day and made our wedding so memorable! Everyone on the boat was friendly and attentive to our guests, and the venue was so elegant and perfect! Our guests loved the boat and everyone said it was the most unique and memorable wedding they've seen.
    (Even the bouquet toss from the top deck on the dock was a hit!)

    Wonderful Wedding on the Raven

    We ended up using Watermark when the company we had booked with canceled due to COVID. I had just about a month to find a new venue and found out about Watermark. Amanda was so helpful and responsive right from the start. We booked as soon as we toured the boat and Amanda was so helpful with our requests. The day of was amazing, the Raven was beautiful, a perfect size for a small wedding. The bartenders were amazing, so attentive and happy to please. The guests raved about the boat, the staff, the ambiance and a few of the guests are wanting to book the Raven for their annual holiday party they loved it so much. I highly highly recommend, you and your guests will love it!

    Beautiful!

    Had an intimate wedding due to COVID which honestly was perfect. Staff was so accommodating and the backdrop was beautiful. The Raven was clean and well maintained. Could not have asked for anything more. Thanks so much, Watermark!
