Wedding on a Historic Train or Riverboat: That's Unique!
Your wedding is an opportunity to enjoy and display your unique tastes and character. Why not think of a place that will render your guests rapt with delight? Think about taking your vows or hosting your reception on a Mississippi-style riverboat, the Becky Thatcher, or on a spacious 1920s-era dinner train along the Connecticut River, on a rail line laid in 1871. The Connecticut River – nearly undeveloped here, with views of green hills and distant mansions – is a pleasure to see close-up. Similarly, the large windows of the dinner train or riverboat open to lovely green hills and views of the river. An art gallery, restored hall, or a lawn at historic Essex station offer stationery places for vows and in-house catered dining.
