Cozy up to the idea of an intimate wedding ceremony on the water

What could be more romantic than you and your soon to be very significant other exchanging wedding vows before a dozen family members and friends under a starlight sky aboard a gorgeous Maine schooner you’ve chartered for several nights? Well, perhaps an intimate island ceremony followed by a lobster bake reception. Or maybe a small dockside affair, after which the two of you say your farewells and retire to an onboard honeymoon suite before sailing off on your cruise past lighthouses and the dramatic Maine coast. The history-rich vessels of the Maine Windjammer Association can make all those scenarios come true, coupled with gracious, friendly service and the easygoing at-sea atmosphere that will allow you to relax and enjoy your big day.
