Let Us Paint The Picture For You

The next chapter of your life begins as soon as you step off the dock and onto one of our traditional Venetian Gondolas. Your experience will take place completely by boat and throughout your ride you’ll be immersed in the picturesque nature of our beautiful San Diego lake community.


Often times we are surrounded by Black Swans, White Swans, Pelicans, a gorgeous mid-lake fountain and an island, which is home to many wildlife. Lake San Marcos is also home to a hotel, two restaurants, and even hundreds of houses on the water. You’ll feel miles away from the hustle and bustle of city life as you are transported to the tranquility that is our North County, San Diego hills and lakeside community.

Wedding Ceremony on a Boat

Mid-Cruise Ceremony

Halfway through your cruise we’ll stop rowing the Gondolas and float with both boats side by side. Officiant, Bride, Groom and a few special others in one boat, with your wedding party or even family in the other. These elopements are intimate and meant for people who dream of a smaller wedding.


This is the time for the Bride and Groom to stand while letting the Officiant do what they do best. Only mere feet from your friends and family you’ll look into each other’s eyes, surrounded by nature and give your vows. After the big “I do’s!” your Gondola experience will keep going throughout the rest of our scenic Lake San Marcos.

A Wedding On A Boat Like No Other

We have mastered the intimate wedding. Although we have already crafted perfect gondola wedding experience you’ll remember forever, our packages can be customized and tailored to fit your needs. We have a variety of options and add-ons we’d love to discuss with you. Even options like giving mini gondola cruises to your guests who weren’t part of the initial boat ceremony.


During this time with the uncertainty of COVID-19, our focus is on intimate, micro weddings.
