  • We are both from Illinois and wanted to give our guests a truly Seattle experience. This was it. The staff was amazing to work with, gave us extremely helpful suggestions, and truly took effort to get us the special day we were looking for. They were extremely responsive and helped us numerous times with all our questions. The venue offers decor, catering, and floral options which made planning so much easier (plus, the options were awesome)! The food was FANTASTIC. Our guests have told us again and again how they usually hate wedding food, but loved our menu. So impressed and happy with how our wedding turned out and can't recommend the Skansonia enough!

  • Love this venue and their staff! They are extremely easy to work with and very responsive. They seem to adapt well to however you and your partner treat wedding planning. We are not super into wedding planning so it was fantastic for us to have a one-stop shop for everything. I really appreciated their flexibility as well. We brought in all of our own alcohol and dessert and our dogs! And the venue, what is not to love? Views of the city, mountains, water, and Gas Park. I want to live on this boat. I would recommend this venue in a heartbeat to friends and family.

  • From our first tour of the venue to the last dance on our wedding night, the MV Skansonia met and exceeded all our expectations! The Skansonia provides the perfect backdrop! The inside and outside details of the boat are unique, very vintage and everything I dreamed of for our special day! The staff is so attentive and kind and made sure the focus was always on us and making the day perfect! The food was phenomenal, the flowers absolutely beautiful and the bakery brought my dessert vision to life! Our friends and family are still talking about our wedding and how perfect of a venue it was! My husband and I will forever reminisce about the best day of our lives in what we believe was the best location and venue to begin our forever together!

  • Thank you SO much, Anita and Finni! Both of you are absolute superstars! We got married in Canada, and then we celebrated our wedding aboard the MV Skansonia in August of 2018 with a beautiful brunch, mimosa bar, and cake reception! We had about 80 guests, and the Skansonia was the best decision that we made for our Seattle wedding event! The entire process was filled with so much joy, and we had two outstanding people make the day flawless and fun! The venue itself is gorgeous and required very little extra decor, as it has some of the best views in Seattle and historic charm. The food was delicious! It was served fresh and piping hot! Our guests were raving about the venue and catering! We are so grateful to the staff at the Skansonia who worked tirelessly to make the day extra special! They even sent the sweetest card after our event. We feel so lucky to have found such a beautiful venue and to have worked with such incredible people! Thank you so much for making our dreams come tru... Read more

  • The MV Skansonia is an amazing place to get married! The ferry is so unique that I fell in love! I don’t think I could have imagined having my wedding at any other venue! Between the view, history, staff and food it was by far the most amazing venue I have ever seen! From the first time I saw the venue over, a year ago, the planning process couldn’t have gone better. The day of the wedding was just amazing. Finni was the most helpful ever and making sure the day ran close to on time and making sure everything ran smoothly. I personally didn’t add much decorations to the venue has I loved all the character that the ferry had from the years of history that it shared. All of our guests were just shocked how amazing the venue and staff was at the Skansonia. I’m so glad that I accidentally found this venue and got to experience the most amazing adventure I could have in my lifetime. Thank you to everyone and all the staff over this last year making it the most memorable wedding ... Read more

  • Best wedding venue in Seattle! We got married in June 2018 and we couldn't have asked for a better wedding. With Anita and Finni's help, we planned our wedding in just four months. We loved that it was all inclusive so we didn't have to waste time or worry about finding other vendors for food, dessert, flowers etc. That made the planning very efficient. So if you're a bride/groom that wants to keep the hassle of planning a wedding to a minimum, I'd recommend the Skansonia. Their staff is amazing. P.S. the food is delicious. Everyone loved the mushroom ravioli. I hope to be invited to a wedding there so I can have the food again :)

  • What an awesome place to have our wedding! The day was perfect and we couldn’t have felt more supported than we were with Finni and her team. She did a wonderful job, always willing to help and so patient throughout the whole process. She was extremely accommodating and so helpful throughout the whole day. The venue was gorgeous and the food and dessert were excellent. We lucked out with beautiful weather and our guests, who were mostly from out of Seattle, couldn’t stop talking about the venue. I highly recommend this venue, and this staff, if you’re looking to get married. Finni and team - thanks so much for helping make our special day perfect!

  • Amazing staff, value, and most importantly FOOD! Anita was very attentive through the entire planing process answering any questions and organizing every detail. The boat is a unique and breathtaking venue and the food is phenomenal. Because of their organization, the day went off with out a hitch (except for us, we got hitched).

  • These people are PROS. The #1 thing I'm glad we did in the wedding process was decide to have our wedding here. They have their own caterer and bakery, so no running around to find more vendors, plus everything at the venue worked in perfect harmony. It was nice to just have one point person, Devon, who was amazing and thought of everything, down to what drink we wanted waiting for us after the ceremony! As soon as I arrived on my wedding day, I asked like 3 questions, and then had to worry about NOTHING else the rest of the night. This was especially helpful when it came to keeping on schedule -- when it was time to do the dances, or start eating, or wrap up, I was gently prompted and things moved along like clockwork. We never felt rushed. Devon was also our ceremony coordinator, and she ran the rehearsal and ceremony. It all went perfectly and was the loveliest moment of my life. Quality wise, everything was exquisite. The food was AMAZING (the mushroom ravioli is to die for!... Read more

  • Our experience with the Skansonia was far better than we could've hoped for and we can't recommend them more!! We absolutely enjoyed every step of the process of working with the team there. They communicated consistently with us (including over Skype since we were overseas) and took the stress out of the event by taking care of the millions of details involved with planning a large event like this. The event went seamlessly and we felt like the Skansonia team was part of our family! Our guests LOVED the venue and we did too. We were also highly impressed with the food - our guests and family commented on how impressed they were with the quality (rare for large events!). The Skansonia team truly enhanced our experience with their kindness, organization, and expertise and YES, exceeded our expectations. We cannot recommend them more highly!

    Thank you so much for your kind words, Erica! We loved having you aboard for your beautiful big day & are so happy you had such a great experience. :)

  • The MV Skansonia is a wonderful place to get married. It is fairly affordable in the off season, and we loved that it is located in the city. The venue offers most of the services you need for your wedding; such as catering, item rentals, floral, baking, and beverage. The staff are extremely responsive and helpful. There is no need to use a wedding planner if you get married at the Skansonia, since they are able to take care of pretty much everything for you. The pricing is very straightforward and they offer you a detailed price quote before you commit. Our guests loved the venue and enjoyed themselves very much and we did too!

  • I really can't sing the praises of this venue enough. It's beautiful, we did any decorations, the food provided by the new catering company (the Ruins) was wonderful, and the staff were extremely warm and professional. Finni was our main point of contact, and she was a delight. She was flexible, responsive, and asked all the right questions to make sure we had every detail covered.

  • My husband and I absolutely loved the venue. It has a gorgeous view of the Seattle City Skyline, but even better than that, is the day of coordinator. Vicki was very helpful in taking over the day. She kept the party on track! Furthermore, it is basically an "all in one" venue. Decorations, food (which was absolutely delicious!), silverware etc. can be provided. Highly recommend.

  • On this day last year, I was getting ready to marry my best friend. Ben and I had been to the Skansonia many times before our special day because, unlike many other venues, you can stop by anytime! When Ben and I first saw the MV Skansonia, we knew it was absolutely perfect for us. We had a nautical themed wedding and we wanted to be on the water. The MV Skansonia provided us with the perfect place to get married: 360 degree view of Lake Union, a vintage nautical theme, both indoor and outdoor space, ceremony and reception coverage as well as an attentive and charming staff. Overall, the MV Skansonia exceeded our expectations! Ben and I had the absolute perfect wedding for us. The staff helped us customize our day to perfectly represent our love story and provided us with everything we needed. The food, drinks, environment and service was beyond our wildest dreams. Thank you, MV Skansonia, for giving us our perfect wedding day. We cannot recommend you enough.

    Happy Anniversary Chelsea & Ben!!! We wish you a lifetime of happy and adventurous years together. Thank you so much for this lovely review, and of course come on board and visit us any time you want to reminisce :)
