Congratulations on your engagement – what an exciting time! We know trying to decide on the perfect venue is difficult and we are thrilled that you are interested in the Cherry Blossom! The Cherry Blossom is one of six authentic split sternwheelers in the country. It is designed with ornate iron rails and a plush interior of brass and mahogany and created for gracious private entertaining. The Cherry Blossom is a re-creation of a 19th century Victorian riverboat that can accommodate up to 350 guests. However, our average wedding is about 120-150 passengers as capacity is reduced from its certified capacity to allow for tables, seating, caterer’s needs, and weather considerations.We know planning a wedding can be stressful! But rest assured, Potomac Riverboat’s number one priority is to assist you with an effortless planning process and an unforgettable wedding day. The happy couple may choose to host their ceremony in the waters of DC, Maryland, or Virginia. Our sales and events team is excited to work with you! If you would like to plan a day and time to come out for a site visit, please give us a call to schedule an appointment!.
