I don't think there's anything more charming or romantic than a waterside wedding. And if you agree, then you'll want to check out the newly remodeled Municipal Boat House on Oakland's Lake Merritt, which now houses the Lake Chalet Seafood Bar & Grill.
The private Lake and Gondola Rooms—located at opposite ends of the building—extend out over the lake, and both feature wrap-around views, hardwood floors, and a warm, modern atmosphere. Gondola cruises even depart from the restaurant's dock.
