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... Read More and how great the food was. Some even stated best prime rib they've ever had.

If I could give ten stars, I would! From the start, the function managers helped us so much! We picked this venue after only two months in the surrounding area. The fact that they did almost everything for us is what sold us. The way they acted after we booked them is what made... Read More it the best. I could call at any point during my twelve months of planning and any one of the function managers could answer me questions. The whole staff is so helpful and knowledgable. They truly made my day about what I wanted. They worked with me on every aspect and made sure it was everything I dreamed of. Then, on our special day, when I didn't think they could do anymore... They did. They made sure that I had nothing to worry about. From set up, telling guests where to go, and ensuring we ate and stayed on schedule, they were outstanding. We also decided to do the open bar and let me tell you... They did not disappoint. The bartender was so easy going and everyone loved her! Thank you all at Danversport!! You made my day flow so smoothly and seemingly perfect!

Unbelievable! I had my wedding at the DYC in August 2015. The staff was absolutely incredible. I had so many moving pieces to my wedding and the staff knew every detail and made the day go flawlessly. From the first time I met the staff, I had good vibes. They have things down... Read More to a science (and are very knowledgeable on Jewish weddings). I was even able to work with the chef to change the menu and make it kosher. I received wonderful feedback from my guests about the food, service and beautiful venue. After much searching, I really believe I chose the best water venue in MA! The ballroom is breathtaking with gorgeous chandeliers and the water view is unbeatable. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this venue and staff, and you will certainly not be disappointed if you have your wedding here!

Amazing (And Stress Free!) Wedding

Danversport was the BEST decision we made in the wedding planning process. Michael and Carol, the wedding coordinators, ensured that we never wanted anything. They anticipated all of our needs and wants so we could dance the night away. For the level of service, up front... Read More pricing, and the all-inclusive nature of DYC, there is no better value without skimping on anything. We were married in the Garden Terrace area with the deluxe appetizer package and full open bar. The beautiful ceremony went off without a hitch (on time), the food was just delicious, and the entire staff was so accommodating. Don't want to deal with managing lots of vendors? Worried about making your parents or fiance crazy with coordinating? Choose DYC. It'll be the best decision you'll ever make!

AWESOME (if you can afford it)

Reviewed on 7/28/2015 Dan M

This place is awesome. Highly recommend. Super classy. Ceremony and reception was here. Wedding for about 300 guests was easily accommodated. They cut us a deal (50% off) for the grand ballroom because we booked for a holiday (4th of July). Honestly, it was worth every... Read More penny...of my dad's money. Key words here: expensive, but worth it. These people are pros at weddings. For example, apparently my family couldn't find the sand that we needed for the reception card trays. The day of the wedding, I happened to mention how pretty the place cards and sand looked to Ron (wedding coordinator from the venue). He casually mentions that the chef provided bags of BROWN SUGAR to replicate sand, but I shouldn't worry because everything was going smoothly and I should enjoy my day. I was floored. I felt extremely taken care and didn't have to worry about a single thing!

Perfect wedding venue and day!

We absolutely LOVED working with the staff at the Danversport Yatch Club. They were so extremely professional and knowledgable about what they do. All of our friends and family had such wonderful things to say as well, from the food to the dance floor. We had our wedding in... Read More the ballroom and only had about 150 people but they were very willing to work with us to make it work. They also accommodated many last minute requests such as having signature drinks, setting up the escort card table a certain way, and the flow of cocktail hour. Everything was reasonably priced and well worth the value. They do an awesome food tasting event where you get to try anything and everything with other couples also getting married there. And the location is to die for. Right on the water, we had cocktail hour outside on the patio which was so much fun. We used the Courtyard Marriott about a mile away as our hotel and it all worked out very well. Our manager Ron, was also the best! Again, loved everything and so happy we chose them! (Venue cost was between $23-24,000 but all together our wedding was probably closer to $30000)

The coordinator Kim was great, very helpful during our rehearsal even without our officiant there. The day of, she was right by our side instructing people where to go. Ron was also very helpful and made things run smoothly and on time. There was a point when my bustle broke and I couldn't bustle my dress, and one of the waitresses actually met me in the bridal suite and sewed me dress for me to bustle! We had an open bar, and they worked in signature drinks for us, everyone loved the bartenders! It really was a wedding everyone will remember, and cannot stop talking about! It is a beautiful venue, wonderful people working there and I would suggest this venue to anyone!

I could not have asked for a more perfect venue to celebrate my wedding! This was the first venue that we looked at and immediately knew that we wanted to have our reception in the ballroom. Everything was perfect! Our guests could not stop talking about the food, as it was... Read More simply delicious. We opted to get the Gala Sweet table and it has been something that our guests cannot stop talking about since the wedding. Our coordinator for the night helped us from the very start and ensured that all details were just as we had spoken about and even added some special touches! Since our wedding was at night, the atmosphere of the ballroom was wonderful, as we had all the lights shining from the chandeliers and the lights leading up the stairs outside was just enough for some great photos. Danversport Yacht Club was a true gem and I am so pleased with everything… I cannot thank them enough for making it such a perfect day!

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... Read More 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.

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,... Read More 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!

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.

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... Read More 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.
