Good Monday morning to you! Who wants to take a summertime boat right on the Potomac river with me?! Shauna and Jonathan had their Virginia wedding ceremony and reception on a riverboat docked in Old Town Alexandria. Aboard the Cherry Blossom boat, they treated their guests to good food, great fun and a hefty dose of nautical inspiration! I love how they embraced the summer riverboat theme for their wedding, yet did it in such a sophisticated and classy way. They were even able to get some gorgeous portraits with Beth Hamilton Photography on land before boarding the boat for their ceremony. Don’t forget to come back later this morning for their reception too. Ahoy, matey!


From Shauna:  Jon and I did not have any particular vision in mind for our wedding, which made finding a venue a little bit difficult. However, once we found the Potomac Riverboat Company and took a tour of the Cherry Blossom Riverboat and talked with the staff we knew this was it! Once our venue was picked our theme feel right into place…nautical of course! Even though we are not “boat people” we thought that since a lot of people would be traveling from different areas Old Town Alexandria was a beautiful and convenient area! Not only was the boat located on the waterfront at the end of King Street in Alexandria, so people could enjoy Old Town, but they could easily get to DC and enjoy those sightseeing areas as well!
