ARIA & BRYAN

“Choosing to have our wedding with Boston Harbor City Cruises was the smartest decision we’ve made in a long time. The entire process was so seamless from booking with the Sales Account Manager, to the planning of the day with our dedicated Event Coordinator, and to the day itself with the entire onboard restaurant team. When our wedding day came, our Event Coordinator went above and beyond to quell any worries and executed our vision to perfection. The boat was gorgeous, service was extremely efficient, and the food was spectacular! Our friends and family are still raving about how it was best wedding they’ve ever been too! My husband and I will never forget our perfect wedding day thanks to Boston Harbor City Cruises.”
