River Queen & River Belle
My husband and I love dinner dance cruises so we immediately knew that this was the perfect wedding venue for us. The staff is great! The day was beautiful and everyone had a great time.
Sharon and her crew aboard the River Queen in Brielle did an amazing job for our reception. They were very accommodating and offered flawless service. Very friendly and took care of all of our needs. Any special requests were taken care of by Sharon and everyone had a great time. I hope to go back to the River Queen again for any other event. The cruise was fantastic, people are still raving about what a good time they had and how unique the river boat idea was for a reception! I am grateful for their help and patience with us as we planned our reception. I would highly recommend this company!
Luckily we had a perfect weather day. Everyone was so impressed with the view and the atmosphere, nobody cared about the food - which was good, but not great.
We had our wedding on the River Queen on July 18, 2009. Everyone invited said it was the most fun wedding they have ever attended. Captain Adam officiated at the ceremony and made a beautiful and quick ceremony. It was a beautiful evening and the view on the river was fantastic. The food was great. I liked that I didn't have to decorate too much because the nicely kept boat and the great view were the focal points.The staff could not have been more accommodating. We had several guests with gluten allergies and the staff saved food that was appropriate for them. We used vendors that were recommended by them and were not sorry. The Chocolate Carousel made a beautiful cake for us as well as a gluten free cheese cake. The point DJ's kept the party going strong all night and played all the music that kept everyone dancing. Howie from Shore Photography took great pictures. One of my friends said she felt like she was on on four hour vacation. I can't thank Sharon , the wedding planner from the River Queen, enough. I highly recommend the River Queen as a wedding venue. It was very affordable and it was the best night of my life.
A great time was had by all. The ride down the river was so picturesque and the sunset made photos outstanding. The staff was responsive and professional and I loved working with the owner/planner who had great ideas. The food was also really good. Overall, it was a wonderful, memorable evening.
As a nervous bride, I was completely overwhelmed with details and decisions that needed to be made for my wedding day. However, the entire staff especially the owner, Sharon Bogan, made my wedding dreams come true! Sharon responded to my every call, every change and every request professionally, timely and truly caring. The River Queen was simply the best choice I could have made to host my special day with family and friends. The amazing food, hospitable staff, flowers, decor - and lets not forget the view- and numerous details too many too describe went off without a hitch! My husband and I were able to enjoy every moment thanks to the many hours of behind the scenes hard work! For a most unique and memorable wedding experience, the River Queen was simply the best!
Everything was very nice and well organized. Only problem was when the DJ was running late they wanted to leave without him. Luckily we were able to wait.
A great and unique way to host your wedding reception.
Great place for your wedding
I have worked many times on the River queen and the River Belle ,It is a very different experience to be married at sea ,they provide a wonderful affair to be a part of.
Who wouldn't want to have their wedding on a boat while going down the Manasquan River. Sharon and her staff at The River Queen always do a great job. I highly recommend using them.
We have been working with the River Queen & River Belle for about 8 years. What a fantastic venue to celebrate all those special events in life. Gorgeous Views, Professional Staff, Delicious Food...what could be better. Parties on these Riverboats are a truly unique experience!
In the summer of 2005, I was married and had my reception on the River Queen. The Bogan family and there professional staff made my special day go off flawlessly. From the planning phase to the end of the event, Sharon answered all my questions and made sure that evey detail was as I requested. Our cruise started at 5:00 pm, we shared a beautiful scenery and a stunning sunset with our quests. The food was plentiful and of the highest quality. We had 125 quests aboard and we had more than enough room for everyone to eat, drink, dance and be merry. A few of our quests were initially nervous about being on the water, but any nervousness was quickly dispelled as the protected waters made for smooth sailing. I highly recommend the River Queen and River Belle for any event. Rhonda ( Flowers By Rhonda )
As a Disc Jockey, I have been to just about every hall in New Jersey. With that said, I can tell you that The River Queen and The River Belle are not your typical reception halls. The cruise and it's views will far surpass your expectations. Knowing the owners and staff for over 20 years, I promise you that they take the time to understand your wedding and will work to create a reception that you will remember for years to come.
