Captain Iris is available to officiate a range of ceremonies from traditional to alternative, or your family pastor is welcome to come aboard and perform the wedding. The captain is also available for shore-side ceremonies anywhere within 50 miles of St. Michaels, MD.
From Nov 1 to April 30, during the off-season, Captain Iris steps ashore and offers her officiant services for engaged couples looking for a non-church wedding. A completely customized service that says “you” is our specialty. Let Captain Iris help you speak your heart, or simply say “I do.”
Selina II requests a 50% non-refundable deposit at the time a reservation is made. At that time, an email confirmation notice will be accompanied by Captain Iris’ proprietary wedding service as a starting point to develop a customized ceremony just for you.
In the event of bad weather or it it is too windy, we can put up an awning and go ahead as planned. If it is too rainy and too windy, we can go below decks and have the service in her main salon, which is very pretty. Or if it is really nasty, we can reschedule for the next day, assuming you have booked a room and are spending the night.
At Sail Selina II, we’re honored to offer our wedding guests wedding cakes from award-winning baker, Julie Bakes.
On the Selina II we offer a 6-inch vanilla cake with buttercream frosting. Please call for pricing and please note that there is a $30 a plate charge in the event that you bring your own cake.
Licensing & Officiates
You will need to have a Marriage License from the Talbot County courthouse located in Easton. You can get this in person or by mail, but it must be in your possession at least two days before the ceremony. The license is valid for six months after it is issued, and you must be married in Talbot County. You can look at the county’s web site here.
