Right before the start of this newlyweds reception the sun was setting so we went out onto the dock next to the boat for some quick photos. The couple wanted that iconic photos with them in front of the giant red paddle wheel that use to power the boat up and down the river.
The Delta King Hotel is located right on the waterfront in Old Sacramento. The Delta King is the only waterfront wedding and event center in all of Sacramento. This huge and historical river boat is floating on the waters of the Sacramento River, which makes it such a unique venue location for special events. This riverboat was in services from 1927 to 1940, which was then used during war time as a accommodation ship. After sinking once and being left in shambles over the years the boat was eventually remolded and opened for services in Sacramento in 1989. It has been operating ever since has a hotel, restaurant and event center.
Wedding ceremonies can take place outside or inside the riverboat. The outside ceremonies take place on the lower dock right next the the boat and on the water with views of the Sacramento River. Ceremonies can also take place inside the boat in one of the many large banquet rooms on board. Inside is also where your reception, dinner and dancing will take place on your wedding day. Most of the receptions take place in the paddle room, which has an amazing and up close view of the boats giant paddle that use to power it up and down the rivers.
