  • I loved having our small reception at Boatwerks! Due to Covid-19, we were able to have our own tent on the water! The staff was so kind and helpful. We felt very cared for! I highly recommend.

  • We had our wedding ceremony and reception outdoors on the patio at Boatwerks. It was not our original plan, but now we wouldn't change a thing! Boatwerks made everything so easy, worked with us for every single change we made (COVID related and not), and it was an absolutely beautiful day! We would recommend having a wedding and reception at Boatwerks to every person we know!

  • WOW, we had the best wedding reception at Boatwerks last month! The perfect weather made the venue shine with the awesome flow of inside/outside dancing and patio area, the doors opening up to a second outside bar, patio lighting, yard games, and outside fire. We received so many compliments from our guests on the delicious food and gorgeous venue. Jean was great to work with from start to finish, we appreciate all of her help making our wedding day truly special!

  • Boatwerks was such an easy choice for us when choosing a venue for our wedding reception. From the very first meeting Jean and her staff were so responsive to all of our needs and desires for our big day. They were truly flexible in adapting to making things just the way we wanted them to be. Being able to have our dancing outside provided a unique experience for our guests and we often still get so many compliments about how fun the atmosphere was and how great the food was. I would recommend Boatwerks to anyone looking for a wedding venue, you will not be disappointed!

  • Boatwerks was such an amazing venue and fit in perfectly with the vision we had for our wedding. Everyone there really helped make our day the best possible day, especially as we had inclement weather, they waited until the last possible minute to set up so we could make a decision on the ceremony being outside. We ended up being outside and it was absolutely perfect, just a few sprinkles! Jean added on the Macatawa room since it wasn't booked to make sure our guests had space for the cocktail hour and it ended up being such a great area for everyone to mingle. The food was absolutely amazing, and we received so many compliments on it! This was really important to me as a bit of a foodie, and I didn't want to have bland wedding food, they surpassed my expectations! During dancing, the weather outside was perfect, so the patio doors were opened and the dance floor moved outside, which really made the night perfect! Jean was wonderful to work with, helped answer every question I had, and... Read more

  • The wedding coordinator, Jean Ellis, was very accommodating and her ease of making arrangements was apparent in her experience. She was very flexible and willing to accommodate all of our requests. The venue was absolutely beautiful with an outdoor wedding Ceremony and transitioning to the indoor banquet room with sliding glass doors that opened up onto the outdoor patio was awesome. The food was excellent and the portions were very generous. Everything was done in a timely manner. There was not one mishap! We were extremely happy we chose Boatwerks.

  • Let me start by saying, we had a beautiful wedding at Boatwerks. However, we paid a heavy price leading up to our wedding this past fall. Here are some of the worst struggles that we faced: Appetizers: We specifically requested to reduce the number of cheese and crab cakes. Jean Ellis refused our request to lower the total amount served from 100 pieces to 75 quantity. **For over $20,000 you’d think we’d be able to select the appropriate appetizer quantities….not at Boatwerks** Cocktail Stations Bars: We paid for 3 bars and 3 bartenders. Only two bars were setup and the outside patio bar closed for dinner and never opened back up. (Essentially this bar closed 4 hours early) ** You’d hope you get great service on your wedding….not half staffed bars like at Boatwerks** Tip Jars: We discussed in great detail with Event Planner, Jean Ellis that the Event bartenders already received both an hourly fee and 20% on service and gratuity on Total Food and Beverage.
