Wedding Ceremony: Yacht Weddings
New Jersey Shore,
New York


Yacht weddings are for couples who desire a ceremony and reception to take place at sea and be original, elegant, casual, glamorous, daring or traditional.

Today's motorcraft sail year-round from the New Jersey shore, New York, Florida, Weehawken, Hoboken, Jersey City - anywhere there are docks.

As a nautical non-denominational minister custom-writing and officiating all legal wedding ceremonies including same gender marriages, I help the couples I work with navigate the waters for an on-board legal marriage, and I file all required paperwork.

Wedding ceremony yacht weddings offer unmatched views and ritual opportunities.

The cost for a motorcraft ceremony and reception is comparable to a land venue.

Your ceremony and reception, however, will be the only event onboard. You and your guests have exclusive use of the vessel.

Plus, the view you and your guests see is extraordinary year-round.

"Every detail was taken care of right from the start. Our experience could not have been better or more wonderful on this amazingly charming gem of a yacht. Its size suited us and our guests perfectly. We never felt like we were on a floating hotel. Plus the staff and services were faultless." Siobhan and Eamon, West New York, NJ
