Jen and Bill

Wedding Date: May 5, 2015

When Bill and I got engaged, we immediately knew we had a few “must haves” with our wedding ceremony – it had to incorporate the water, it had to be unique and special, it had to be “friendly” and easy to find for our out of town guests, and it had to be affordable. We had taken several public cruises on the Pride and when we considered our “must haves”, the Pride was our immediate destination. Everything was so easy, from the booking of our date/time, to the caterer, to actual event planning itself. The Pride staff and crew were incredibly accommodating and are one of the reasons our wedding day went as smoothly as it did. They were willing to make on the spot changes for us, and made the entire day so relaxing and enjoyable. The crew went above and beyond, and we wouldn’t have changed anything!

We held both the wedding and the reception on the Pride, and our guests still talk about how incredible the day was. Originally, the weather that day was a little questionable, but we knew that we had the option of having the ceremony on the top deck or inside – so we didn’t worry at all. As it was, we were able to be married on the top deck, which was absolutely perfect. The photographs were great, because we could have it all – the river, the city skyline, the Pride herself, and the interior of the boat as our backdrop.

Because many of our guests were from out of state, they also felt like they got experience one of the area’s hidden gems while getting to see a very positive view of the city. And, because the Pride is so beautiful by herself, there was no need for decorations or extra embellishments.

If we had to do it all over again, we wouldn’t change a thing. We highly recommend the Pride for a wedding or any special event!

Jen was the greatest gift we could have ever asked for!  We knew nothing about planning for weddings, and we simply didn’t think that we had time or money enough to get married this year.  Luckily- we were wrong!

From the very start, the riverboat staff was exceptional in helping to plan our event, and we always felt like their number one priority!  The crew was incredible, and the captain even took some pictures with our family.  Jen was amazing; I can’t recommend her services enough.  She had everything prepared for us and walked us through every step of the journey.  We are so glad to have planned our wedding on The Pride!

We can’t say enough good things about our Brides on the Pride experience!  The staff was amazing, the photography was incredible, and we only paid one quarter what other venues were asking.  In short–wow!
