Plan a Nautical Wedding Aboard Selina II

Looking to tie the knot and say “I do” on a boat on the Chesapeake Bay? The romantic Selina II 1926 yacht offers two unique options that are sure to make your special day a truly unforgettable experience! Choose the perfect sailboat wedding package from the following wedding cruises options.

The Ceremony Under Sail Package
From St. Michaels harbor, the trip lasts two hours, and we can accommodate up to six passengers including the bride and groom. Weather permitting, the boat wedding is performed under sail. Perfect for a boat elopement our officiants offer a range of ceremonies from traditional to alternative, or your family pastor is welcome to come aboard and perform the wedding. The fee includes the 2 hour sail, boat decorations, Maryland State amusement tax, officiant fee, a customized ceremony, crew gratuity, and a Champagne toast for up to 6 guests.

The Wharf-Side Wedding Package
For couples who want to share their day with a larger group of family and friends, Selina II can fit up to 12 guests aboard (including the Bride & Groom) during the service with up to 50 guests watching from the dock. After the service, you can share an optional Champagne toast, and then take a post-ceremony sail with up to six guests for an hour before joining your other guests at a reception at a local restaurant of your choice.

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

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.
