Sail Selina II St Michaels Maryland weddings on a boat offers a gorgeous yacht rental for your romantic nautical themed wedding with 1926 charm & grace.  Freshly varnished mahogany and brightly polished brass set the tone with a 1000 square foot old fashioned sail for romance and elegance while getting married on a cruise. Our all inclusive boat wedding packages take the stress out of planning a wedding.

Sometimes we get asked “Can a boat captain marry you?” and the answer is ‘it depends’.  If Capt Iris is aboard she is also an ordained minister and can legally marry couples in Talbot County Maryland.  Otherwise Rev Bonnie presides. The Reverend gets rave reviews and is also an official Maryland wedding officiant for Sail Selina cruise elopement packages.

Another question we get asked when couples are looking for a wedding boat rental near me is ‘What to wear on a wedding on a yacht?’  Same as what you would wear to any wedding, but sometimes people add a nautical motif to their outfits so we see dressy boat shoes, sea shell themed jewelry, accessories with anchors, etc. Choose from formal tuxedos and classic wedding dresses to Hawaiian print shirts and flip flops. It your day, it’s your way!

You will need to have a Marriage License from the Talbot County court house located in Easton.  You can get this in person or by mail, but it must be in your possession at least 2 days before the ceremony. The license is valid 48 hours after you apply, and you must be married in Talbot County.  You can look at the county’s web site here:
http://www.courts.state.md.us/clerks/talbot/marriage.htmlYou can either apply for the license in person or get it through the mail, (so convenient!). Kathy Duvall is the clerk of the court and her number is 410-770-8010 if you have questions

Here are local the photographers we recommend (book early, these folks are in high demand):

Also, many people as about weather. In the event of bad weather we can either put up an awning and go ahead as planned, or we can below decks still tied to the dock, or if it is really nasty we can make arrangements to use a closed in porch overlooking the water at a near by Inn. Otherwise we can reschedule for the next day assuming you will still be in town in the morning.

5.0 Perfect Intimate Wedding Setting- We were looking for a small intimate wedding setting. Sail Selina II was perfect for us. Not only is Selina II and the town of St. Michael’s beautiful, the captain and crew made the day extra special. We had the most perfect day, very romantic yet casual. We did the 2 hour sail and then had our friends and family waiting for us in the Harbor to celebrate. The ceremony performed onboard was exactly what we were looking for when committing our vows to one another. I would highly recommend Sail Selina II for any couple looking for a romantic, intimate wedding ceremony. Many thanks for making our day special
