When most people think of weddings a guest list of over 100 is present, a formal ceremony takes place then dinner and dancing will follow. But what if that does not fit who you are as a couple? Celebrating with all of our couples is an amazing joy for us and we understand that filling up the Boathouse for a night of dancing is not for everyone. Need a traditional wedding alternative? We have you covered!
Intimate Weddings – A Weekday Affair
Imagine saying “I do” with 50 of your closest family and friends under our oak cathedral. The evening (or brunch) will flow from the ceremony to the cocktail patio overlooking the property. Then guests will be welcomed inside the Boathouse set with Crystal and Crates farmhouse tables and french country chairs to enjoy an intimate meal together. For three and a half hours you and your guests will make memories for a lifetime that is seamlessly accomplished with the help of one of our wedding coordinators.
*If you are thinking of renewing your vows an intimate day could be just the thing.
The backdrop of oak trees draped in spanish moss is not only reserved for large gatherings. Reciting vows can take place under the oak cathedral with just the two of you or up to 20 of the most meaningful people in your lives. We provide you with a photographer, officiant and music to make the day as memorable as possible. End the day with dinner reservations at your favorite restaurant and have a getaway to one of Melbourne Beaches bed and breakfasts.
A Summer Event
In the heat of the summer our air conditioned Boathouse is utilized for both the ceremony and reception. Still set as an intimate event for up to 50 guests this allows for a weekend wedding during Florida’s summer. Draped barn doors are the backdrop for a memorable ceremony. Guests are then welcomed on the patio for an abbreviated cocktail hour. A lovely meal follows in the comfort of the Boathouse to complete the day.
*This is our best valued package for booking the venue and the only time they are based on 50 guests or less on the weekend!
