About Us

On your wedding day, imagine cruising up the mighty Mississippi River on a beautiful paddle boat. Everyone you love is enjoying the gentle breeze, good conversation and music which fills the air. While the sun sets across the Minnesota sky, memories of your perfect day are being created that will last a lifetime.

The Padelford Boat Company has been providing memories for brides and grooms for 40 years. Ceremonies, receptions, groom's dinners and rehearsal dinners have all taken place aboard our boats. The enclosure of our boats, as well as heat and air conditioning guarantees that you will go out rain or shine. Unlike other riverboats and reception facilities, we do NOT charge an 18-20% service fee, parking is free and there is no tipping-it is our pleasure to serve you.

Whether you choose to "one stop shop" with a wedding package or go "ala carte" -the choice is up to you. As the Wedding Charter Consultant at the Padelford Boat Company, I am committed to helping you plan the perfect wedding.
