    The best Venue... not joking

    This is a not for profit so they won't nickel and dime you. They are incredibly flexible for their menu, what ever you want they will do! Their linen selection was impressive, and had everything that I wanted (I wanted white, navy and rose gold). They helped with setting up the decor, tear down into our boxes at the end of the night and kept it for us to pick up the next day. They will go out of their way to make your day the best it possibly can be. I seriously can't thank them enough for their services, well worth every penny!

    Wedding at BYC May 2018

    We had our wedding at the Britannia Yacht Club in May 2018. Everyone at BYC was great to work with! Breanna, the even coordinator, was accommodating and answered all of our many questions quickly and easily. On the wedding day everything was perfect. The waterfront was a beautiful spot for the ceremony and Breanna helped us make sure everything was organized and seamless. The reception hall was nicely decorated, all of the staff was friendly and helpful and dinner was fantastic. We got so many compliments from our guests about the food and about the views from the balcony overlooking the river. We highly recommend Britannia Yacht Club!
