I had my late December wedding at Danversport and found them to be very easy to work with. We had a very small, low key wedding and any request made by either myself or the groom was met. The day went very smoothly and I enjoyed working with them!

I cannot begin to express how greatful I am to The Danversport Yacht Club, Ron,Paul, Lauren, Heather, Mike, and all of their staff. They are absolutely amazing and not only did it shine through to my husband and I, my guests are still raving about how attentative the staff was and how great the food was. Some even stated best prime rib they've ever had. As a bride, i did not have any worries that Ron would not take care of my husband and I, he was by our side and made sure our entire experience was the best we could ever dream of!

Perfect Ceremony & Reception Venue

If you are looking for a venue for your wedding, you really don't have to look any further than Danversport Yacht Club. This was the only venue my husband and I looked at and from the moment we walked in, we knew this was where our wedding was going to be. Their entire team is very knowledgeable and quick to respond to questions. I myself am an event planner and wanted a venue that I did not have to be a planner on my wedding day, and Danversport far exceeded my expectations and had me completely at ease the entire process. Both our ceremony and reception were held at DYC - it looked like it may rain and Ron and his team had both outdoors and indoors set-up and did not make me feel rushed to make a decision. We wound up sticking with our plan to hold it outside, the rain held off and they even put heaters outside for guests since it was a bit chilly. The ballroom was breathtaking and every detail was covered. Our cake was missing the flower topper it was supposed to have and Ron fashioned together a topper using roses from some of our arrangements and it looked beautiful. The food and service was AMAZING - I am still hearing from guests how incredible the cocktail hour was (the food literally just kept on coming with no end) and how delicious the meal was. Ron and Derrick tended to our every need that night and were so accommodating. DYC really went above and beyond to make our wedding beautiful and special and I cannot thank them enough.

We wanted to thank The Danversport Yacht Club, especially Ron Bilodeau for executing such an absolutely stress free evening. Ron is amazing when it comes to communication and advice. Our daughter was delighted upon walking into the grand ballroom that evening. The food was superb, the staff was amazing! Thank you again for making this a spectacular evening!!

I recently at my reception at the Danversport Yacht Club and could not be happier with my decision to do so! Ron was our wedding coordinator and made the night stress free and flawless. He made sure every one of my visions came true! Our guests cannot stop raving about how beautiful the ballroom was and how amazing the food was. My favorite aspect of the room is the gorgeous chandelier. I would recommend Danversport to anyone! I wish I could do it all again :)

Ron and his team did a fantastic job coordinating the evening for our wedding and everything before! It was important for me to not to have to worry or think of a thing, throughout the planning there were a couple of meetings and poof, it all came together beautifully. Our guests all commented on the venue, the food- "sophisticated, yet a blast". They even assisted in having out very important guest, Tilly come down the aisle! Words can not describe and thank you to Ron and the team! I will say, don't make a decision based upon the food tasting, it did not due justice to the appetizers or the meal, everything was perfect!

Beautiful venue, wonderful service

Reviewed on 10/23/2014 Lori C

Before I was engaged I loved Danversport. It has beautiful grounds and ballrooms. When we toured the venue we fell in love with it even more! We knew we wanted a summer wedding on the water and it fit perfectly. They offered so much with their packages. The cake, meal, linens, flowers on the head table, place cards, all included in the package price. The coordinators there were all very pleasant and happy and have been in the business for many years. Ron & Nancy were such a pleasure to work with. Ron booked the wedding day with us and went over our final details with us, we adored him. Then Nancy became our wedding day coordinator. The rehearsal day we went over all of the details with Nancy and everything was put together perfectly the day of the wedding. Nancy was also very helpful the day of the wedding to make sure we had everything we needed and were happy with our big day. The weather was beautiful and we had a beautiful outdoor ceremony at the garden terrace which overlooks all the beautiful big yachts and then enjoyed our reception in the garden terrace! Thank you Danversport for a wonderful wedding that we will never forget!

Truly exceptional!

I had my wedding at Danversport Yacht Club on 9/27/14 in the Gazebo/Ballroom and everything was absolutely spectacular. I worked primarily with Lauren during the planning and she was perfect. She would respond to emails within an hour or two, and did everything to make sure the day went smoothly. I loved that Danversport included everything in their pricing - made budgeting very easy! The decor was excellent, the service was exceptional, and I am one happy bride!!

I could not have imagined having our wedding anywhere else! All of the staff was so helpful. Ron is the absolute best!!! Very professional and ensures that everything for your special day goes off without any problems, almost as if it was his own wedding day. The food was amazing and delicious!! The wait staff were all very personable and accommodating. We also ordered our wedding invitations through them and they were simple and beautiful! They have quite the selection to choose from. We had our ceremony at the gazebo and reception in the main ballroom. Our guest's told us that it was "the best wedding that they have ever been to". I am so happy we chose to have our wedding at Danversport, I would highly recommend having your special day there.

We had our wedding here June 2014 and all I can say is that it was amazing and perfect! We received such amazing personal care and attention at Danversport Yacht Club that it seemed like we were their only clients. Michael was our coordinator and he went above and beyond which truly exceeding our expectations. My husband and I are thoroughly impressed with the venue and the staff. After the wedding countless individuals told me that everyone working there was so polite and so organized. There was no aimless wandering, puzzled looks, or strange downtime. Cocktail hour was set up amazingly outside in the newly renovated Garden Terrace, and greeting the guest with a glass of champagne as they arrived was a beautiful touch. I have heard over and over again that the food was insanely good (which we already knew) but it only adds to our overall satisfaction and experience. Whenever I talk about how smoothly everything went, the discussion always ends with us confirming how lucky we were to have our event there, and that we made the perfect decision when it came to choosing our wedding venue. We will be recommending Danversport Yacht Club whenever possible.

I was fairly thorough in my search of a venue for my wedding. There are so many wonderful places in the area to have weddings! I was thrill with Danversport in the end. I can't stress enough how wonderful it is to know the complete venue costs right off the bat. I know several brides who went several thousands of dollars over their budget because the venue added fees for things like linens, tables, chairs, etc. All of those things and even my delicious wedding cake were included in the price quoted to me. I had my ceremony in their pergola and reception in the Garden Terrace room. Every moment was picture perfect. I understand that you can get beautiful locations all over the area....but the food. Good lord. The food was amazing. Everything was cooked perfectly and delivered piping hot right to each and every guest. They even honored special requests from my quests such as having their prime rib cooked well. All of their staff were very accommodating and made sure that EVERYONE had what they needed. I'm so happy that we went with Danversport Yacht Club and would consider doing other events there again in the future.

Danversport was a great choice for my husband and I to get married. They have everything included in their packages from wedding coordinators to the food to the cake. They were so easy to work with and really made us feel special the day of the wedding. We got married in the pergola next tot he lighthouse and had our reception in the lighthouse room (100 people). It was so beautiful and our guests loved the food! I would reccommend working with Danversport Yacht Club again and again!

I had a beautiful fall wedding in the Garden Terrace room at DYC. We had the ceremony outside and the rehearsal in. We were so pleased with every aspect of the day. The grounds looked amazing and the room was just I had hoped. I had many of my own touches ranging from the favors to the centerpieces which they executed just as I had imagined. They guests have been raving about the food since. The staff was so attentive and helpful. They even stepped in when the ring bearer decided to hit the bricks after the went down the isle. I could not see behind me but I hear one of the staff members dodged back and fourth preventing him from running into the parking lot. Honestly, I had a fabulous day and would recommend DYC to anyone looking for an amazing event with all the details taken care of for you.

I couldn't have asked for a better wedding venue than Danversport Yacht Club. We had our ceremony and wedding reception here 2 weeks ago. The staff at DYC was incredible - everything went perfect all day. They were very helpful, prepared and really thought of every little detail that a bride could need or want on her wedding day. Michelle and Michael (room captains/DYC wedding staff) were awesome. The location by the water with all the yachts is gorgeous. The pergola where we were married was decorated beautifully with fall flowers. The Lighthouse Point room and tented courtyard outside were spectacular. I would highly recommend DYC. They were great during the entire wedding planning process and perfect on the day of! We even got to have our dog in the wedding ceremony!

I recently got married at Danversport Yacht Club in June 2013. Words cannot describe the service they provide, from the beginning when I was picking the venue to asking my million questions and finally to the most important day of my life. Their customer service is beyond incredible as they always returned my calls or emails same day. The venue itself is absolutely stunning. Our wedding was outside at the Pergula and our reception was in the Garden Terrace room. Every single detail was perfect and they were extremely professional. The food was delicious and I have received tons of comments from my guests on how amazing the food was and the proportions. For your wedding day you want to be nothing but stress free and I will tell you that Danversport Yacht Club staff does an amazing job of making your wedding day perfect. They having such an incredible wedding package which leaves your worry free about the cake and escort cards and TAXES!! Keeps the cost of having a wedding lower than most venues.

Coming from a distance, a lot of our wedding planning required a lot of driving back and forth. With Danversport, a lot was able to be done over the phone or by mail, so we only had to be there twice, besides the first time when I went there to check it out in person. They were all so courteous and all our guests enjoyed the food and service, as well as the location, right on a peninsula in the Porter River!
