  • We still gush over how lovely the boat club was for our wedding. The backdrop to our wedding ceremony was beautiful and the space for the party was just the right size and amount of unique charm. Our guests loved it and we got some many compliments. The service was also spectacular from start to finish. Katie was always very responsive and eager to answer any questions. The day of service was just as great too. The catering was delicous and we really enjoyed being able to go to a tasting beforehand to pick just what we wanted.
