  • Getting married during Covid isn't easy. Kristin and the long time local small family business that is The Spirit of the Ethan Allen never stopped working with us, helping us, and putting in the time to make sure we could still have a small, safe, special wedding. There are a lot of venues, packages, and vendors out there to choose from. Go with Kristin and SOEA if you need someone creative, flexible, extremely hard working, professional detail oriented, dependable and friendly to make the process simple and fun for you. We had the wedding of our dreams - amazing food, music, and breathtaking scenery out on beautiful lake Champlain, at a price we could afford. Kristin and SOEA went above and beyond for us in every way imaginable. I know they will do the same for you.

  • Kristin was my wedding planner on the Spirit of Ethan Allen and I loved her!! She made planning a wedding so easy and exciting especially during covid. She was always easy to get ahold of and very easy going! My wedding was a day to remember because of her help! I couldn’t imagine a better way to get married then on a boat cruising along a sun set! 11/10 recommend

  • Kristen, our wedding planner was so amazing!! She planned everything to the tee! As a mother of the bride it took so much stress away and it allowed me to just take it all in with only excitement and now worry or stress! Everything was scheduled and ready for us to follow. This money was worth every penny!! I would do it again too! Kristen’s eye to detail was amazing! We dropped all decorations and she took care of it all! Her personality is the most sweetest and genuine! She became part of our family on such a special day! It was a fairytale to be part of’ what an amazing person to gain as a friend! Even though the pandemic of Covid-19 it was still the best event ever!!

  • My husband and I were married on the SOEA and we could not have dreamed of a more perfect venue, planner, or experience. Cruising along Lake Champlain, we had the beautiful mountains and fall foliage as a backdrop for our wedding ceremony. The venue was ideal as it was all inclusive and we did not have to worry about a thing. Decorations, full stocked bar, accommodating staff, DJ, tables, linens, chairs, food, the list goes on. The venue even included our own remarkable wedding planner! Kristin Bogovich was such a pleasure to work alongside. Her organization skills, quick responsiveness, and coordinating expertise made our planning stress free. She was attentive to what we had envisioned and helped make our wedding day a dream come true. Overall our champagne brunch wedding experience was a huge success. All our family and friends raved about how great it was to enjoy the scenery beautiful Vermont had to offer while dancing, laughing, and indulging in scrumptious goodies provided by th... Read more

  • While planning the wedding, we had some unexpected events that changed our plans and Kristin and her team were great, very supportive. Kristen kept in touch and always responded to texts, emails, and phone calls. At the wedding the staff was friendly, attentive, and helpful. The wedding guests were very impressed with the staff. Some of the guests commented that this was the best wedding that they have attended. I highly recommend the Spirit of Ethan Allan.

  • We had our ceremony and reception at the Spirit of Ethan Allen. We were planning from afar, which can be difficult for anyone. However, the coordinator, Kristin, made everything as easy as possible! She was so willing to work with us via phone and e-mail to figure everything out prior to our arrival in Burlington. Our wedding was perfect with her assistance. The only "hiccup" was that it rained so we could not have our ceremony outdoors as planned. It was extremely easy to move it indoors at the last minute, and it was still gorgeous. We had the Champagne on the Champlain brunch buffet, which was delicious. The decorations that I had brought were perfectly arranged. And to top it off, our waitstaff was extremely friendly and the service was amazing. There are not enough good things I can say about the SOEA!

  • We cannot be happier with our wedding on the Spirit of Ethan Allen! All the staff on SOEA were super friendly, helpful, and professional. The coordinators Josh and Megan were fantastic! We wanted to add as many personal touches as possible to our wedding, so we did a lot of DIY decoration for the ceremony and reception. Josh and Megan went over all of the details with us and made sure it was worry-free for us on our wedding day! The food was beyond our expectation too. Needless to say that the sunset view on the cruise was just gorgeous and romantic! Many guests came to us during and after the wedding, giving compliments on the food, service, and atmosphere of the wedding. It was perfect!

  • I got married on the spirit of Ethan Allen last night. It was a magical experience. The staff was wonderful, cheery, and Michelle was amazing. Everything was done exactly the way I hoped it would be. Elegant, sophisticated, fun. The food was divine. The weather didn't completely cooperate but I was reminded that rain during a wedding is good luck. I cannot recommend this place enough.

  • This was such an incredible experience I hardly know where to start! First of all, the views on the ship are breathtaking, and this was the most important factor in our decision to select this venu. The Adirondacks, Green Mountains, and Burlington cityscape are beautiful during the day and breathtaking at sunset, and even more so when enjoyed from gorgeous Lake Champlain. The ability to be on the water yet still allow our guests the option- and comfort- of indoor AND outdoor movement was just perfect. Not a single worry about the weather! And options- oh, my! There were almost too many options. The website is really just a starting point, believe me. We were able to customize to our heart's content, from the food to the decor, deck set up, music- if you want it, you can probably have it. If inclusiveness is important to you, look no further. While we only utilized the ship for our reception, it was still so wonderful to have so much included in our package. The staff is by far the best... Read more

  • Everything was fabulous, no doubt due to Heather and the rest of her staff's hard work. The deck was decorated beautifully, the food was excellent, drinks were strong and prompt, and the DJ was great at reading the room. Having your reception on a boat is such a unique idea and we were thrilled to provide this experience for our guests. The value we received for our money could not have been found with any other venue.

  • SOEA was an absolutely perfect choice for our wedding! We were planning a VT wedding from abroad, so wanted a venue that would take care of everything. SOEA did not disappoint! Our wedding coordinator, Sarah, took care of all the details and made sure that we had the perfect day. We received so many compliments on how fun and unique our wedding was. We were surrounded by the beauty of Lake Champlain and all our guests had a tremendous time. This is a great choice for VT destination weddings!

  • We had a small wedding aboard the Spirit of Ethan Allen, and it was the most memorable day. We got married three years ago, and our guests still rave about it. The staff was attentive, helpful, and moved around almost unnoticed. They were amazing. We did a day side ceremony - at 12 noon - so our guests could enjoy the mountains that surround Lake Champlain, and I'm so glad we did. At night, you can't enjoy that beauty. The prices were super affordable compared to many other venues we looked at. And everything was just spectacular. This couldn't have been a more perfect venue for our wedding.
