Theresa and the rest of the staff are absolutely amazing. They were so great to work with and truly cared about our day. The venue itself is beautiful (love the downstairs and upstairs different feel). We couldn't have picked a better place and people to share our wedding with! Lauren and Zack <3

Gorgeous venue!!! It is definitely expensive, but it was worth it in the end! The staff working here is also great. Danielle, the coordinator of the event made everything so seamless and easy for us. She was so great to work with throughout the whole process and knows everything about organizing a wedding at this venue. In the end we had no hang ups and were truly amazed at how our day turned out!

Mallard Island Venue was breathtaking, gorgeous. There are not enough adjectives to describe the venue and service we received at our daughter's wedding. Danielle, the event planner, at the Mallard, went above and beyond to make every detail happen. She covered every aspect and gave us great suggestions as we went through the months leading to the wedding. Every question was answered promptly to put our minds at ease. Our guests could not believe how beautiful the grounds were at the Mallard inside and outside and many said they had never been to a venue like this. Taste Catering did an unbelievable presentation at the Cocktail Hour and the Dinner. The food was delicious and plentiful. Impeccable!! Our guests raved about the food. The professionalism and service received from the Bridal Attendant, Maitre D, Servers and Bartenders was excellent.
Danielle assured me the day of the wedding "Let me take care of it." She did!
We were able to relax and enjoy our guests because of Danielle's knowledge and expertise.
Our daughter said she had the wedding of her dreams at the Mallard Island Yacht Club and she did.

We waited a long time for our daughter's wedding date to arrive-- It was held at the Mallard where Danielle and her staff made all my daughter's and son in laws dreams come true. We could not have asked for a more perfect wedding planner then she was. The people are still talking about the excellent food that was served all throughout the event. The service was excellent (perhaps) a little more time for us at the end to gather our things and depart would be the only very very very tiny thing I would have liked to see handled better -- we felt a tad bit rushed, but 99.99% of the time we were treated like family.

Danielle's expertise and advice helped this frantic mom actually have time to dance the night away with no worries, and that might be the biggest compliment ever given out.

Blessing to all who made our daughter's wedding at the Mallard a "true fairy tale come true".

Mallard Island is a dream of a wedding venue. When I first walked in to the yacht club my heart was racing; it was the most beautiful place I could ever imagine getting married in. The staff, food and grounds are all top notch. I never thought we could get married in a place that fit our personalities so well. Danielle and her entire staff said yes to every request we had. They were so accommodating and helpful throughout the entire process. Not only were we completely satisfied but my guests had nothing but wonderful things to say about the venue. Mallard made our dreams come true in every aspect possible. The only problem we had was our dream day ended too soon. Wish we could do it all over again!

Our wedding at Mallard Island Yacht Club was an absolute dream come true. Everything offered was top notch, from the customer service through planning in the months and days leading up to our wedding, and everything on the day of our wedding. We could not imagine getting married anywhere but Mallard, and highly recommend this venue. The views of the bay are absolutely stunning! Danielle will put your mind at ease, and the entire staff works so cooperatively to ensure that your day is picture perfect. We wish we could get married all over again to experience it one more time!

I got married at the Mallard Island Yacht Club on April 25, 2014 and it was incredible!

When I first met with the coordinator, Danielle, she said "don't worry about a thing". How right she was!! Not only did she guide me for months during the planning stages, she gave me great ideas as well. I don't think I could have been so calm, collected and happy if it wasn't for her.

Our entire day was spectacular. The venue, staff, service and food exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend getting married here.

Weddings of Distinction was an amazing company to work with for my Mallard Island Yacht Club Wedding. Mallard was an absolute dream for my wedding day April 12th. It was everything I could have ever wanted it to be and more. Danielle from Mallard was AMAZING to work with and there are not enough words to explain how kind, helpful, professional, and wonderful she was throughout the entire wedding planning process. Danielle put us at ease and went above and beyond to create a day I will remember forever. Each and every guest was impressed with all aspects of our wedding. The ceremony was beautiful and took my breath away and we have received TONS of compliments on the decor, professionalism of the staff, and especially the food. The chapel was beautiful, the groom shack and bridal suite were amazing (especially for photographs!!!), and the ballroom was breath taking. My wedding day was perfect and I couldn't have asked for anything more. I would recommend Mallard Island Yacht Club to everyone. Danielle was an ultimate rock star, and myself, husband, and family absolutely ADORE her.

I cannot begin to express how grateful we are to have had the Merrimakers & WOD team by our side during this wonderful, but at some points stressful time. I cannot tell you that your wedding won't be costly, if you choose a WOD venue...but I can absolutely tell you that you will remember it for the rest of your lives, and it will certainly be the best night of your life! Merrimakers has an unmatched professionalism about them, that I do not believe is available anywhere else. We worked with Laura D., Mary, Jamie, Kevin, and Kevin, Kate (my bridal attendant, whom I will be grateful for her presence that night for the rest of my life LOL), and Ginny for WOD, and I really cannot express into words how instrumental each and everyone of these people were in making our night BEAUTIFUL. I cannot say one off color thing about this team...I promise you WOD venues are worth the price. The food was exceptional, our ballroom was setup exactly to my specifications, and the staff that worked our wedding were among the nicest people I have ever met. I know for a fact, that people will discuss our wedding for years to come...can't say enough great things. The only thing that upsets me is that I can't do it again 100 times over. We love WOD and Merrimakers!
