Thank you, Alli! Wonderful Venue and Coordinator

My husband and I got married here recently and worked with Alli, the Boathouse's day-of coordinator. She was very detailed with the planning leading up to our wedding and made it easy to iron out the ... Read more schedule and all the moving parts. No complaints at all in that regard! And then the day of the wedding came and I remember her being SO gracious and treating me and the wedding party with such exemplary first-class service. I remember asking something from her just to find out she had already read my mind and had her team behind her already working on it. I've had great customer service before, but Alli made me feel like royalty on my big day. On top of that, our guests had a blast and everyone complimented the food and venue. My husband and I have no complaints and are truly grateful for the experience and memories Alli and her team at the Boathouse provided. Thank you so much!

Fabulous Venue

Our daughter got married October 14th at the Boathouse at Rockett’s Landing, and we couldn’t be more thrilled with the impeccable, friendly, and personal service we received. Our Event Coordinator was ... Read more Elaine Rush, and from the time we booked the event in March until the wedding day, Elaine kept us on track to be sure everything was covered and that we didn’t forget any small, but important details. Boathouse has a complete vendor list they provide, and Elaine steered us to the PERFECT DJ and officiant. Besides the bride and groom, the STAR of the day was THE FOOD! My husband and I were so proud to be hosts if this event. The venue itself is beautiful with views of the James River, and the location provides a visual nod to both historic Richmond and views of the contemporary architecture from the city’s financial district. We highly recommend Boathouse at Rockett’s Landing for ANY special event.
