Testimonial

Kari and I wanted to say thank you for a wonderful wedding ceremony andreception that exceeded our initial imaginings. From early planning to the big day Donna was a pleasure to work with and provided creative suggestions along the way to helped ensure the day would leave fond memories for us and everyone attending. The appetizer/dinner options available were wide-ranging and the food was beyond exceptional. A seamless compliment to the beautiful scenery. Captain Dean conducted a textbook Adirondack wedding ceremony and the staff of the W.W. Durant made sure everyone was well taken care of from cast off to return. We don’t know how you managed to provide us a sunny day on top of everything else but kudos for pulling that off for us. We look forward to many anniversary cruises in the years to come and thank you again for giving us the day we’d hoped for and much more.”
