Weddings aboard windjammers are nautical – and nice!

But one thing stays the same: It’s all about enjoying your big day with the water as your grand centerpiece. And talk about a nautical theme: Many vessel captains are licensed to perform ceremonies, and many of the on-board chefs can whip up a gourmet lobster-themed dinner complete with champagne and cake. Charter a 40-person schooner for family and friends and cruise through Penobscot Bay, or have your waterfront wedding dockside, say your farewells and set sail on a romantic honeymoon cruise. Some vessels even have honeymoon suites!
