Beautiful Experience for a Wedding - An Eventective User from Hillsborough, New Jersey

The wedding that I had for one of my relatives was one of the most beautiful experiences that I ever have been through in my life as it was not only exquisite but unique. The wedding venue was on the water and part of a beautiful establishment that overlooks the water in Point Pleasant. I know that they always wanted to have a wedding that was on the water but some of the venues that were available were very expensive and required the whole family to travel if they wanted to make that arrangement. The wedding was done on a cruise ship that went far out into the water and made everyone feel as if they were the center of attention. The amenities on the ship were great as the liner was decorated and waxed for ultimate effect. I felt that the people on the ship were very friendly that were associated with this venue and were dressed properly for a wedding. Anything that we wanted, we asked them and they supplied to us immediately. I strongly suggest that if you are considering a wedding that is not the traditional format to choose one that is on a cruise liner. This can provide a great memory for the rest of your life as you overlook the bridge at night, in a vacation atmosphere with the water under your feet and the stars above your head. Overall I strongly recommend the River Queen for an affordable alternative to a destination wedding venue.
