Looking for a unique and intimate setting for your special day? Look no further than the Grand Lady, the Buffalo/Niagara Region's premiere passenger vessel!
The Grand Lady is ideal for couples looking for a nontraditional yet beautiful setting for their special day.

It will be a day you and your guests will long remember.
Having shared in the special day of hundreds of couples since 1998, our experienced and professional Captain and crew will work with you in planning your wedding, making sure your special day is exactly how you've always envisioned it.
Whether you decide to have your ceremony, your reception, or both on board, the Grand Lady's superior amenities, climate controlled cabins, and beautiful furnishings will offer you and your guests all the comfort of any shore-side facility. The Grand Lady's also perfect for rehearsal dinners, engagement parties, or bridal showers.
