Louisville Wedding Venues: Steamboat Belle of Louisville

For an truly romantic Louisville wedding reception you won't soon forget, you may want to consider hosting your big event on the Belle of Louisville. This exceptional steamboat offers offers a romantic old world setting aboard a National Historic Landmark: true to the era of Steamboats.  You not only have the unique and characteristic old steamboat decor as a backdrop, there is also the ever-changing city and riverside to view as you drift along the Ohio River. While cruising , a tour of the boat will entertain your guests while viewing all her historic features on a venue like no other.  The Belle will be 100 years old in 2014 and holds a legendary place in history.  Seating will be in the ballroom.  The remainder of the vessel includes an upper open air deck for your guests to enjoy and a main deck art gallery and engine room where history is still present with original 1890 steam engines.

If you plan to have your ceremony and reception aboard the Belle or the Spirit Steamboat, a professional coordinator will glady work with you to plan your celebration. This is a great setting for Engagement Parties, Bachelor/Bachelorette Parties, Send-off Brunches, Bridal Luncheons, Showers, Rehearsal Dinners, Wedding Ceremonies, and Receptions. Prices for the Spirit Steamboat start at $1300 for two hours cruise time, and $600 for each additional hour.  To book the main deck for the ceremony package, expect a $350 addition to the bill.  The ceremony package includes room for 100 guests, aisle runners and seating.
